Home Automation ... what happens when you sell your home?

OK, here is another off-topic discussion item that might generate some interesting chatter...

The past few years I have added quite a bit of home automation, most of which is tied to my online identity through email address and various smart phone/online apps like Alexa, Google Home, Smart Life, and others tied to specific product websites and apps.

Alexa does not lie

I'm sure it's or she's programmed to tell the truth lol

I was getting concerned with Alexa complying to my wife's requests for various holiday music.

So I said hold on, let me test her out for a second.

Asked her to play a specific tune by a specific artist, and to my relief, she responded that would only be included with Amazon Music Unlimited. Here's a song based on....

Happy Thanksgiving (USA)

Thankfulness is the quickest path to joy.

Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family.

what would you do in these two cases? :-)

case 1. purchased eyeglasses, using FSA, they're delayed by over 7+ days, ordered 10/31 and should have been delivered a week or so ago. Got an email to follow-up, delayed.

Log in and since I had the same glasses in the cart, saw the price had dropped $72 for Black Friday!

It takes a lot more than a Hurricane named Nicole to keep Mahoney down!

It did slow him down a bit, but after a week away from POI Factory, he's already updated 14 POI Files.

Thank you for all you do for our community, Bill!

exercises in futility

What are some exercises in futility (or stupidity) you can think of?

Here's an example or two to get started:

Slam a revolving door.

Herd squirrels through the forest.

Illiterate? Write for free help.

Hopeless customer service like the 80's?

I pre-order these limited edition CDs because I learned--they go up in value, sometimes 3X+. So why wouldn't I?

Example, I bought 2 @ $60 on eBay, when the face value is $28, and last year, sold one for $180. That is when they are sealed--not when someone opens to make a copy then sells.

unable to post

I am unable to post in Keeping the Windmill alive.I was able to download the poi files but not able to post?? Hopefully I don't lose my privileges.

Nicole (hurricane) impact

Just to let members know, Nicole knocked out power to our home for almost the last 2 days. That's why I haven't been able to respond to comments. Thankfully, no home damage. Lots of debris in the yard. The last 2 have passed over us and I don't want this to become a habit.

Veteran's Day

With respect, honor and gratitude, thank you veterans.
