"h" is for "hidden"

I noticed this pint sized Windows feature the other day while I was applying the Hidden attribute to some of the more (artistic) photos in my collection. Yeah let’s go with that. You can choose a file(s), then get their Properties panel with a right-click and the letter “r”, then tap the letter “h” for “Hidden” <—- no…


"Simple Music Player"

I’ve been trying a paired-down mp3 player app for audio books on a Nexus 7 tablet. Link at the bottom.

There are probably tons of other minimal players to choose from but this seems good enough for the purpose.

I can get the tablet to play books for about a day and 6hrs on a charge, a day and 18 hrs if “battery saver”…

You're The Fix-It

I have something to offer Hackerspace— and I’m sure there’s a hack in here. Today I got a call from a Christian friend who had read something about making a gratitude list of ten things each day for the coming year.

She was in a good mood today, I could tell. And that’s good—- and more power to her, may her joy not…

a bitchy rhyme

I became angry and ruined my world
and I’d only just got out of bed

Google Photos etc

Hey everyone. I wanted to say how I once complained about not having an immediate way to get my photos uploaded upon taking them. Well leave it to Google to put the solution under my nose, whilst everyone else already knew about it. haha.

It’s slow tho. Uploads are always slow. But I think it’s better than plugging the…

Smooth Playback - Cassette

I like this vid, because it shows what a cassette could sound like if it was in good shape, and the player was of good quality.

ABBA tried to sound gritty and failed, but the audio itself is astounding; I’ve heard cassettes and player/recorders at their worst, many of which were mine. I just think this case is…


Goodbye To Write Stuff

First, I just want to say thanks to people who came by to comment on the material I posted to Write Stuff, including folks who were nice enough to give my writing the "recommends" it got.

^^ That's the good part of it all. That's what I'll try to keep in mind, that Write Stuff wasn't a *total* waste of my time.



I have battery issues. I know the way out, but I don't want to take it.

Don't let that 100 fool you. I just did a recharge, and it's dripping. I can hear it. : )

Then again, I may be a pup. How hard do *you* geeks push it, re. widgets?
