Blogging on the Move

Blogging on the Move One of the possibilities for blogging on the movies to use Byword. Another possibility would be to use Ulysses with which you can blog to WordPress and also to Medium. I did try an application called Blogo but that it didn’t really cut it as far as blogging was concerned. It was too buggy to use. I do have occasional problems with Ulysses when I want Read More …

Choosing Apple Carplay

I’ve just come back from a long trip in my car. I’ve decided I have good reasons for choosing Apple Carplay. I went to Les Angles which is on the French side of the Pyrenees. It was about 300 km and was basically a drive to Perpignan and turn left on the road towards Andorra. An interesting drive up the mountain to get to the camping site by the lake Read More …

Art Photo in Topaz Studio

Messing about with photos in Topaz Studio I couldn’t resist working with some of the photos I took while away in France in Topaz Studio.

Flic Button Switches Part Two

Flic button switches Troubles Not so happy with the Flic button switches this morning. I moved the office Flic Switch to the Mac App (It was connected to the iPad) and it’s giving me problems. Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn’t. The bluetooth connection seems to be flakey, or it could be some other problem. I just pressed one of the switches and it took half a second or Read More …

Flic Switches

I really like having the Philips Hue light bulbs in the house. It’s cool to have the lights set so that when I wake up in the morning they are on already for me to have my breakfast and get ready for work. It’s also cool that they will switch off automatically when I’m finished and tell me when it’s time to leave the house and get in the car. Read More …
