Bob Dylan

Like the song, this blog is changing. No longer will it be a blog. I’ve given up on the blogging platform and will be reverting to the good ol’ stationary website. Why? Because I’m tired of updates, spam, and hack attacks This blog has been rather dormant so I don’t think the change will bother [...]

Well, I must be moving up in the world. Li’l ol’ me is the recipient of a ransom email. Before I discuss it, let’s take a look at it. Here it is: From: Malani Melendez <tccamillo@coplana.com> Date: February 21, 2022 at 10:02:00 PM EST To: Me at one of my email addresses Subject: Successfully logged [...]

Chromebook

Warning: This is an article I started writing almost a year ago and, for some reason, it never made it to the blog. With the new year, I’m trying to complete unfinished articles and delete those that are not worth finishing. I’ve got a lot of completing and deleting to do. The following article, although [...]

Voice Record Pro

I can’t believe I didn’t write about this app before. Several years ago I came across a free app called Voice Record Pro. I started using it in conjunction with NaturallySpeaking. It allowed me to record dictation for later transcription. I previously used Dragon’s free Remote Anywhere dictation app, but they discontinued it only to [...]

Fish Don't Climb Trees

Oh, Happy Day!  Queue the Edwin Hawkins Singers! I am thrilled to pieces that I was finally able to install my old FrameMaker version 6 software on my new mini PC! If you’ve read my recent blog post, you’d know that I’ve been spending an inordinate amount of time searching for a new journaling software [...]

Jackery

About a year ago, I purchased a 240-watt Jackery power station. I bought it to keep me powered up during my van travels. With having a laptop, tablet, and iPhone, I wanted something that would adequately charge the devices. Whether I went camping, picnicking in the park, or just hanging out in the yard, the [...]

Bluetooth

I must be the last person on earth to realize I could transfer files between computers by using the Bluetooth option. This is a true smack my forehead moment. You wouldn’t believe all the machinations I went through to transfer files from my old computer to the new mini PC. I’d upload them to Google [...]

Amazon Fire TV Storage

I finally did it! I finally moved apps from my almost maxed out Amazon Fire TV to a USB flash drive. This is something I had been wanting to do for so long but thought the process was way too involved and complicated. All I needed was the right teacher and viola, Bob’s my uncle! [...]

Journaling Software Search

Recently I’ve been spending time searching for a program to replace FrameMaker as my journaling software. In my last post, I explain why. My old FrameMaker version 6 won’t work together with my new Windows 10 Pro mini PC (I give more details in an earlier post). My attempt to install the old program generates [...]

Old Software – New PC

What to Do?

After purchasing a new mini PC, I needed to install all of the software I had on my old PC on the new one. Everything went smoothly except for two programs, NaturallySpeaking and FrameMaker. The NaturallySpeaking issue was self-inflicted, but the FrameMaker problem is called, out-with-the-old-and-in-with-the-new. Here’s My Story I thought I was done with [...]
