Re: Message system
I take it from Hooah's thumbs down that he can not access message system.

Hooah if this is correct give me a thumbs up.

Re: An American Chestnut
I assume the blight will get them in a few years. Is there a mature chestnut around?

Re: Shameless plug - What's the Frequency, Kenneth?
I will try to catch this tomorrow. Please post an other reminder tomorrow afternoon. I can probably even pick up the radio station. I am across the lake on WI South shore, near Poplar, about five miles from the lake.

Re: Shameless plug - What's the Frequency, Kenneth?
The station is on Tunein so I can listen through my Sonos system. So far I find the music must be an acquired taste.

Re: Please name this fallacy
I have a friend that still has rice and beans he stored for Y2K. He believes every conspiracy theory that comes along. His main hobby is ghost hunting. What a rube.

Y2K
My post about my friend and Y2K rice and beans, was not to imply that I did not think the Y2K problem was a serious issue. There was a lot of warning and a lot of resources were put toward making sure it was not an issue. I forget the name of the fearmongering pundit he was listening to. I am pretty sure he found out about the guy from an Art Bell radio show.
I definitely do not think the actual aspects of Y2K were overblown. My issue was with the fearmongerers and survivalist that thought they could hole up in their house and fight back against the hordes of people wanting their food, ammo and gold.
That was the other thing. He stocked up thousands of dollars of actual gold. He claimed it would be valuable for trade in a post-apocalyptic world. I told him if I had food and he had gold to trade for it he would end up starving. Gold would have no value to me at all. Alas, he is one of those people that knows more and better than anyone else. Not sure why he is my friend. I guess it is just tradition. We were as close as brothers once, now we are like brothers that don't really like each other. Oh, just like a couple of my real brothers.

Re: Please name this fallacy
A major interstate bridge collapsed near here in MN 12 years ago.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/I-35W_Mississippi_River_bridge
One of the two bridges between Superior, WI and Duluth, MN is closely reaching it's life end. It is now restricted to traffic under 40 ton and be worked on continuously. The states plan on replacing it by 2028. People around here are not confident it will last that long.

Re: Need Smartphone Recommendation
I was a loyal Windows Phone user until I broke the screen on my Lumia 950. It is still the best phone I ever had. Right now I have Samsung Galaxy 8. I do like it. One thing I like about Android phones is that you can use different launchers. I use the Microsoft Launcher. In a sense it is what Windows phone may have been. Still not a Windows phone but kinda close.
The problem I have with Apple is that their ecosystem is completely closed. Their phone OS is mediocre at best and everything is locked down. If you go with a Samsung phone the security will be as good or better than Apple. Lately Apple has been a little slow in addressing security issues on their phones. That Apple products are safe from hackers and viruses is a fallacy. Also, they're Apple.
If you use an apple computer go with an iPhone. If you use Windows consider Android and Samsung is the best of that ecosystem
My 2 cents.

Edited by Theodoric, : final close

Re: Need Smartphone Recommendation
What hearing aids do you have? I have Phonak and I need an additional piece of hardware to bluetooth to my hearing aids. I think their new ones Bluetooth directly but I am not ready to spend another 4k for new hearing aids.
I live in ATT country. Actually nothing works well at my house. We are in a dead zone. In our yard we get 1 bar for ATT and Verizon nothing. In our house nothing. Probably caused by the metal roof. WIFI calling is essential for us.

Re: Need Smartphone Recommendation
Transferring your files is dependent on your computer. From your comments I doubt you have a Mac.
There is an app in the Windows store called Your Phone. It will sync an android phone to your computer. You can see texts and photos taken on the phone on the computer. I also use OneDrive so my pics automatically upload. I then can pull up any pic on my phone on my computer. Engineering and quality are only as good as the manufacturer. I find Samsung to be excellent. On the computer side I stick with ASUS now. I have a laptop from them for 3 years. Nary an issue. For tablets, if you are in the Windows ecosystem, Surface is the best hands down. Traded up from a 3 to 6 Pro last spring. It is amazing.

Re: Need Smartphone Recommendation
My Phonaks work the same way. I guess the newest models have bluetooth built right in so no need for hanging anything around the neck. My hearing aids were also a major improvement to my life.

Re: Need Smartphone Recommendation
What the launcher on an android phone does is replace the default home screen. The Microsoft launcher is much more intuitive and use friendly than the standard launcher on most android phones. My wife has a Samsung galaxy too but I am constantly frustrated that the layout makes no sense. The apps aren't even automatically displayed in alphabetical order.
Most launchers are just cosmetic overlays. The Microsoft launcher is much more.

Re: Stock market falls and the selling off of stock
A stock market sell off is not a time to panic. Especially for us little people. The only people that should show any concern right now are those that are currently retired and dipping into their 401k or those that will retire shortly. The world economy is fundamentally sound. Assholes like donnie that are manipulating the market and are too stupid to see that he is fucking things up can have a short term negative effect.
Keep your money invested. If you pull it now you have turned paper losses into real losses.

Will look when in South Africa, Zimbabwe and Botswana
I will be in South Africa next week. I will take a look at the rental car. Will be my first experience driving on the opposite side of the road.
