This is the place to talk about things that are not GPS related.
This thread will be closed on Monday and a new one will be opened.
Freeze warning here in Delawhere.
If anyone sees Mother Nature can you tell her to give us our Spring back?
Have a safe and Great Week
How is everyone's week going?
sunny and in the 80,s today yea opps forgot have to mow the lawn again !!
My computer just quite on me. Now I have to use a table to keep connected. I have to find out how to take my files from the old to a new when I get one. I hope that garmin-express works with windows 10. I will ask for help if I can not figure out what to do.
Windows 10 works with all my Garmin products.
Picked up more dirt for the garden boxes yesterday. Cut the lawn on Tuesday, got the motorhome inspected. need to get working in the yard. Never ending battle
are headed to the playoffs.
Nice sunny days.
Really losing it, I guess.
Thursday is my new Monday.
Hope you all have a great week.
We have Sunshine to-day and warmer temps..
What happened to the nice weather?
Bring May Flowers....
What happened to the warm weather?
another week almost goes by
Wow, so much fun!
What's changed over that period, I mean in the GPS devices we have in our cars...
Screens are larger and higher resolution (and my eyes, at least, need those larger screens. Resolution has a long ways to go to catch up with modern smartphones, but there's no real reason/demand for that).
The GPS birds are still flying. The last of the early block II birds were retired last month, after exceeding their nominal life expectancy by more than a decade.
We have new birds that support more civilian frequencies, so the next few years could see a new generation of more accurate receivers. (Of course the added frequencies means increased current consumption, so don't expect battery life to increase greatly, without a change in battery technology).
And that's an interesting undercurrent in all this -- the progression of Moore's law and how it's changed the GPS racket. We have bigger, more detailed maps (thanks to far denser memories), and our gadgets handle those maps and map animations a lot quicker (thanks to much faster processors), and battery life has increased a bit overall (more faster memory and faster processors but both of those use less power).
One of the things that hasn't changed is the loose nut behind the wheel.
Common sense ain't.
The box says turn left to that bridge closed sign? Sure!
Thanks to everyone in the family -- I hope we go on entertaining each other for many years.
Eight years. Wow, so much fun!
.... and there are some things that don't change k6rtm ,,, like your thoughtful informed perspectives and wisdom. I am not an apple advocate like you are, but I know you always give a balanced and informed view of things, so I pay special attention when you post. Congratulations on your 8 year anniversary, and thanks for all your contributions.
Glad to be here, as the weather is perfect this week.
Have a nice weekend everybody.
Have a nice day.
gone by. Where do they all go!!
I woke up this morning to a light coating of snow on my windshield. Is it spring yet?
Have a great day!
....Friday is finally here!
snowed last night
Happy Friday everyone be safe
It's cold and windy here in east central Iowa with hard freeze warnings tonight; lows in the low 20's or possibly even the teens. We were teased with a couple of nice spring days in the 60's and 70's a couple of weeks ago, but this week has been kind of ugly weather wise
"Magic is believing in yourself, if you can do that, you can make anything happen." Johann Wolfgang von Goethe - Writer (1749 - 1832)
Glad its finally here!
