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 [...]

Firefox Focus

Let me start this post by saying that promoting the Mozilla’s Firefox Focus browser is akin to shooting myself in the foot when it comes to earning money on this blog. You will note that I have ads here on Low-Tech Grandma. They’re pretty difficult to miss. The display ads are compliments of Google. Google also [...]

I Apologize

This is a short post and an apology for subjecting my readers to Follow.it. It is not working for me and from some of the feedback I’ve received, it’s not working for you either. As such, after submitting this post, I am deleting all names from the subscriber list. If you wish to follow the [...]

What a new world we’re living in right now. There’s a whole new normal and this old gal is learning to go with the flow. It’s not easy, but the tree with the limber branches gets to keep them during the storm. I’m limbering up. COVID-19 made me come to quite a few realizations. First [...]

Grandma's Fast Internet Speed

Recently I increased my internet speed from 100 Mbps to 200 Mbps. The thought of that type of increase got me drunk with possibilities. Imagine my surprise when I performed a speed test and my computer’s actual speed ranged between 5 Mbps and 20 Mbps. No matter how you slice it, that’s a far cry [...]

PlayStation Vue

With PlayStation Vue, I can finally cut the cable cord, or at least I’m prepared to cut the cable cord. I first have to find out more information about penalties and such for canceling my services. Cable companies give you a discount if you order all three services, internet, phone and cable. If you remove [...]

Microsoft Red Screen Scam

I recently had an experience with the Microsoft red screen scam. Apparently it’s a scam that’s been going around for quite some time and unfortunately, has been successful on too many occasions. As a person currently residing in the “mature” age group, I feel it necessary to warn my fellow “mature” people. Young folks seem [...]

Silk Browseer

Goodbye Chrome, Hello Silk! Amazon’s Silk browser is my go-to browser now when surfing the net on the Fire TV Stick. That wasn’t the case a few months ago. Back then (in September 2017) I wrote instructions on how to download and install Google Chrome browser (and mouse .apk) for the Amazon TV Fire Stick. [...]

Fire Stick Mouse

In the last post, I provided instructions on how I downloaded Google Chrome onto an Amazon Fire TV Stick. In that post, I also provided instructions for downloading an app that enables the Fire Stick remote to serve as a computer mouse. Now that you’ve installed Chrome and it’s accompanying mouse, I feel it necessary [...]
