I had higher aspirations: I bought three 2-channel ethernet TV tuners and three long distance antennas. I could tune about 35 LA and San Diego channels plus their subchannels. I wanted to be able to record six channels at the same time. The schedule software was excellent, so I picked out a whole bunch of things to record. Windows 7 supported that and made a great DVR. Better than anything the cable or satellite TV people offered. The playback function even had a pretty good "commercial skip" function.

Worked great for a couple of years but then the software upgrades, hardware obsolesence, and rise of online speed and services made it all less useful.

All of this is fine for you LINIX folks and professional programmers, but I am so language impaired that I couldn't even learn Spanish by living in South America for two years. I'm syntactically challenged, and programing Languages might just as well be Greek.

I got very enthusiastic about Arduinos, until I realized that I would have to talk to them! I can handle Boas, and Anacondas, but Python strangled me.

All these communication protocols and standards terrify and frustrate me.

I have, however, been able to work out a, State of the Art solution ,for sound on sound recordings, though the spector wall of sound effect is still beyond my skill set, but it didn't work out for him anyway.

Here's something you might enjoy, perhaps a bit of a moral at the end.

The Lawyer



A lawyer, who had a wife and 12 children, needed to move because his rental agreement was terminated by the owner, who wanted to reoccupy the home.



When he said he had 12 children, no one would rent a home to him because they felt the children would destroy the place.



He couldn’t say he had no children because he couldn’t lie (as we all know, lawyers cannot, and do not lie).



So he sent his wife for a walk to the cemetery with 11 of their kids.



He took the remaining one with him to see rental homes with the real estate agent.



He loved one of the homes and the price was right.



The agent asked “How many children do you have?



He answered: “Twelve.”



The agent asked, “Where are the others?”



The lawyer, with his best courtroom sad look, answered “They’re in the cemetery with their mother.”



MORAL: It’s not necessary to lie; one has only to choose the right words.



Don’t forget-most politicians are lawyers……


It's high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first instead of their political party. For way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

You never change things by fighting the existing reality.
To change something, build a new model that makes the old model obsolete.

"Not enough rice for the workers, and the chief wants sauce for his rice"

It has ever been thus. That's not politics, it's human nature.

A double negative puts as back on topic, which was complaints about computer problems.
My problem, computer wise at least, was deciding on what new computer to buy, now delayed by ordering a used Dell Latitude E7470 ultrabook laptop with 32Mb ram , touch screen, 500 GBP sst drive, and lots of traditional USP ports and Windows 10 on eBay.
And to celebrate decisive action I even bid on an electric guitar that I've had my eye on for two weeks, and even beat out a couple of last minute sneaking snipers. Haven't had that much good excitement in WEEKS

Great news: I found that my Latitude control panel actually has a nice touchpad device screen that let me disable it completely. So no more jumping around while typing because a thumb hit the touchpad.

Now, if I could just remember how to spell....

You must have a spell checker? (or are you talking about an age problem?)
