New Categories . .

Just a quick note to let everyone know I’ve updated and added to the site “categories”.    I’m trying to make the categories more targeted and descriptive of the actual content being posted.

This update is not set-in-stone, but is ongoing . . . e.g., a “work-in-progress.”   If anyone can wants a category changed or added – – send me an email and we’ll look into it (the club board).   Thanks!

A little browser calm…

As a user of Firefox, I’ve pretty much been a happy camper. One annoyance, however, occurred every time I went to my Google home page. The upper right corners insisted on a Chrome installation (which was dismiss-able). Then I stumbled across an add-on called uBlock Origin.

A bit of history can be found at

and the add-on in several flavors can be found at

Spring cleaning . . a little late

My computer is on a lot and I’m a casual housekeeper.  So I clean the computer fans once a year — and today was the day.  I’ve used the same mid-tower case for almost 16 years – started life as a Micron Pentium 90 in 2001.  It has been rebuilt at least 2 times with nothing original remaining.  And I’m thinking it is time gain.  I want a new power supply, motherboard with USB 3.0 capability, more memory and a solid state HD.  Time to do a little shopping . . .
