Back in the day, people used to walk downtown or go to malls and “window shop.” It was a good way to kill time, see what’s out there, and not break the bank because generally, you didn’t buy anything, you just looked. Today I searched and the appropriate term for doing the same thing is, […]Read More Nice Chillout App
Earlier today I was experimenting with getting a screenshot via remote computer. It’s not as easy as you’d think. The problem is that the software degrades image quality on the remote monitor. So when you do a screen capture, it’s a watered down version of the original. And then when you save it to .jpg […]Read More How to get a good screen capture via remote desktop
Last night I forfeited watching my favorite TV show to try to get an old RSS Reader working in Windows 10. After several “compatibility” and “troubleshooting” installs, I finally got it to work perfectly. Happy as a clam, I posted my success here. This morning, however, it’s back to square one. The program is giving […]Read More Maybe I spoke too soon… the finicky world of old software
It took some doing. Not easy. But after banging away at my PC I got this free, vintage RSS Reader software to work in Windows 10. This is by far my favorite RSS Reader. I never liked Google reader because I prefer using the arrow keys to quickly move thru my feeds. When I speed […]Read More Almost gave up on this vintage RSS Reader… so glad I didn’t!
Funny. Not too long after writing about Windows 7 I got bored with my computer and upgraded to Windows 10. I was able to do this for free because I took advantage of the free upgrade when it first came out. Even though I reverted to Win 7, you can go back to Win 10 […]Read More I switched to Windows 10 and for the most part, I like it
I’m still on Windows 7. I actually like it better than Windows 10. With a computer I want a tool, not a friend. And I find Win 7 is pretty streamlined while Win 10 has too much bloat. However, Win 7 has its limits. One thing it doesn’t do to well, as far as I […]Read More Two Awesome File Management Tools for Automated Actions

Travel the world thru radio… There are many radio apps but I like this one. It's free for PC at the Chrome Web Store. No ads, other than those that the stations themselves put out. #music #world #radio pic.twitter.com/Ig87EVofI7 — Mike Clark (@MikeClark) January 9, 2018Read More Travel the world thru radio…
So I uploaded the previous pic (see below) into the Android version of Pixlr (on Windows via AndY), which has a really nice assortment of free, downloadable fonts. This saves time and hassle, not having to install extra fonts for other Windows-based image editors. Slight color degradation from the original, caused by uploading and working […]Read More And again with TEXT from Pixlr (android app) on Windows
Here’s an interesting twist on a pic I took Sunday night. The photo itself is unexceptional. A 12x zoom of a statue high up in St. Mike’s Cathedral. Recently, however, I discovered the Prisma app for Android. This time I fixed it on my Windows computer, running Prisma via AndY, which is a virtual Android […]Read More Prisma (android app) on Windows…
