Desk Chit Chat
filling the space where Internet travel meets discovery, learn something new, oh look at that! experiences. Postings on Saturday.
The photograph is a vignette of my desk edited. I didn't want my reflection in the small copper bowl (made by Coppercraft Guild, Taunton,, Massachusettes).
This week I got to thinking about posting responsibilities. It is very important to think clearly about what to post about. There are times when I will delete an entire post. Thus, scheduling to give it time to set is a good idea.
Years ago there were a lot of personal blogs giving information I feel isn't safe. Things change. Nowadays when I browse blogs, I often find several that ended with no notice or a short good bye. I see fewer personal blogs. From art and design, I gravitate towards fun blogs about crafts, pets, and such. Searching for old blogs can be fun when I remember the titles. I miss the Catladders on Blogspot (now gone), and always to this day I miss the lovely blog about painted furniture from the Pacific Northwest coast that I forget the name of. Revisiting the blog, Cote de Texas is always a treat. Alice Rimpo is an artist that now has her own website. I still post on the blog, A Botanical Brain.
The break I took in April I believe is the longest time I've been away from blogging. Tough times. The change in no cable is tough as well. I added speed to the Internet only. Only the speed on browsers doesn't look any faster. Maybe the difference will show up when I watch (stream?) a movie online this week-end. I'm still leaning towards cell phone only using ear phones. Neither of my cell phones have good sound when I hold my hand over the receiver thing. I'm calling it the time of curvy learning.
Update on being without cable...Netflix on my laptop Windows 10, doesn't work on Mozilla Firefox. I close and open the Chrome browser. Netflix works fine. On second episode, something shuts off the show. I can't log back in,, no explanation. I find something about Silverlight after learning Mozilla is blocking Netflix. I install Silverlight. Still no Netflix play. It gets worse...I try to log out of Netflix but can't. I have to close the tab. That should not happen because a website should Always inform customers of Known problems. Hello Chrome? Good bye Netflix? Stay tuned...Netflix back on Chrome finally worked.
Have an adventurous week-end!
