Keeping The Windmill Alive - Your Last Trip? – January 2020

In danger of losing your windmill?

Maybe you can share the last place your GPS took you and if you encountered any problems, or if you used it to seek out special places to go (like Thai Food, ice cream shoppes, etc.).

Anything to keep your windmill alive.

interesting cam today

Today I pulled into the car wash, haven 't been for over 6 mos. I noticed that on the selection screen was my license plate and state.

So what.

Yes, my car is registered/insured no big deal.

Just that it would seem that in a car wash such technology would be cost prohibitive.

Asked the guy what it was for, and he said we sell that info for $1/plate. WOW!

NSA Identifies Windows 10 Vulnerability.

The NSA has discovered a critical vulnerability in Windows 10 and reported it to Microsoft (https://www.us-cert.gov/ncas/alerts/aa20-014a).

To Flu or not to Flu ...

I am just now on the tail end of a nasty bought with the flu. I Ended up needing to go to the local urgent care type place. Not a fan of this place by the insurance wants you to use it instead of the (more expensive) ER. Any some blood work, an EKG, yea I have the flu so the give me some medicine and send me home, saying if it get worse go the the ER.

Lens choices for new glasses

Since it's 2020, shall we talk about vision, particularly eyeglasses?

I recently had an eye exam and am now finding more choices for corrective lenses than ever.

There are the ones for blue screen, but now there are progressives for desk work, which I guess have a larger middle viewing window. One of the things I hated about needing bifocals was losing my side vision.

amazon has changed

disclaimer: I am a prime member, and I am a shareholder.

It seems the return policy has become very liberal, no reason needed and drop off at Kohl's or UPS Store without anything.

Yesterday, I received an auto part that was clearly opened (seal broken) and dented. hmmmmm......

Consumer Electronics Show 2020

Consumer Electronics Show 2020 is next week. Will Garmin have any new announcements of interest to us here?

https://www.ces.tech/

update: with the carpool discount being yanked 1/5/20

update 11:56 EST on 1/2/20:

The PANYNJ just announced that they are keeping the carpool plan until all electronic tolling is installed. This could go into 2021 depending.

Talk about a reverse money grab! $6+ less revenue, per all the carpool vehicles going across, that's a lot of money. Man talk about good faith!

from today:

Happy New Years

I have been lurking in the weeds, not posting much lately. Life is happening all around me, and I've gotten sucked up into it. Tomorrow, I'm going to plant my keister on the couch and let the TV provide me with mindless drivel all day. Stay safe everyone, and be careful. Tonight is amateur night after all...

cool

Windows 10 Email

Please excuse this post if it has been covered in one of the other Win 10 threads. I wasn't able to find pertinent information in my search attempts.

I'm in the process of setting up a new Win 10 PC and I'm trying to decide the best email option. Since many here have already converted to Win 10, I'm curious how you handle your email.
