Windows 1.0

My relationship with my Kindle Fire reminds me of Windows 1.0. Today I went to the art museum. I tried to upload a couple of photos. It uploaded 59 pictures from something called my “Amazon Album.” I can t find most of these pictures on my Fire. I can t find them on the web. Then I tried to create an album in the ” Prime Photos app. Which of course was installed as purchase crap that I can t uninstall. The pictures I had just taken were not available. And no I don t autosave to the hacker universe a.k.a the “cloud.” WTFHELPFair winds and following seas ๐Ÿ™‚

24 GB

What a difference 24 extra GB makes. Bought a new Kindle Fire as I had cracked the screen on my old one. The new one has 24 GB more internal storage. Response time is like night and day.Fair winds and following seas ๐Ÿ™‚

Kindle Fire help

When I post my blog to Facebook through a forwarder it drops all the CR/LF data. This is unique to my Facebook posts. All the other sites render it correctly. Is there a key sequence for a “hard” carriage return on the Fire?….. Blast from the past: in 1968 I operated an IBM 1620โ„ข computer*. The operator console was an IBM Selectricโ„ข typewriter. We amused ourselves by writing routines to make it loop “tab, tab, tab,tab, cr/lf.” Not quite as satisfying as it would have been with a full carriage. We were young, male, and stupid…….* I also walked 20 miles to school each day through a blizzard; uphill both ways……Fair winds and following seas ๐Ÿ™‚

Joy of joys. My Kindle Fire has gone sneakers up. Some problem with the digital rights management. Can not read anything. Not to worry says Amazon. Connect to wifi to fix. Sure, in 25 days! Quality! Another night of rain showers. Then a clear sky and stars for 4 hours. It is overcast again this morning. Decent wind but wind and waves on the beam so we are rolling a lot. Sometime in the night the asym sail fell overboard and we have been dragging it in the sock. We will not know if it was damaged until we can put it back up. It looks ok but cost us 1.5 knots while in the water. At least it is clean!
