I am very late in posting these pictures; primarily because our computer picked today to install Window’s October Update. We didn’t lose any files which was a good thing. But the update process took almost six hours! The “This may … Continue reading
Unfortunately, the cold I had continues to persist. I don’t get sick very often and usually not for a long time so a long running illness is unusual for me. Plus, it’s cold, wet and dreary outside which doesn’t help. … Continue reading
It’s only November and I’m already tired of winter weather. Technically, winter doesn’t start until next month. Obviously, the weather will get worse before it gets better. But, it’s still cold, windy, dark and damp outside. Plus, the office where … Continue reading
I had to update our anti-virus software today. The manufacturer has switched from a product key that expires based upon the date when the product was activated to a subscription key that expires based upon when it was purchased. So, … Continue reading
Re-enabling sound on the camera has not been helpful. It’s either loud enough to be annoying. Or, so quiet that we don’t notice that it has stopped. It still kinda works. But only in the most basic sense. It certainly can’t be relied upon to take unattended pictures which, unfortunately, is the only thing we use it for.
For the second week in a row, our camera died and we have a very limited selection of photographs. It’s become more than a minor annoyance. There are more important things to buy on the to-do list, so we may need to compromise on features and capabilities just to have something that works reliably. Our current unit is old, especially for an electronic device. Anything new would likely be better.
Despite the problems we’re having with photographs, videos still work OK. Luckily, we happened to make a movie this week. Hopefully it will not take to long to fix the presentation of photos. For now, enjoy the movie.
Our pool is closed for the season. It’s been cold for a while, so, we weren’t going to swim anymore. But, it’s still kinda depressing to look in the back yard and see the pool with the winter cover on. We are hoping for a short, unseasonably warm winter to make up for the unseasonably long, cold one we had last year.
I changed the sounds the camera makes when it takes a picture in time lapse mode so it wouldn’t be so obtrusive. But, now it sounds like a video game which is an interesting background sound to our activities. It’s good to be able to tell that its working; but it doesn’t suit the mood. I’m probably going to turn it off. Especially since I’m not sure I would stop and restart it anyway.
