Winter vacation 2017-2018

Posted 01-08-2018 at 03:51 PM by onebuck


Been in Florida for a few months now. We had a short cold spell but it's warming into the 70's now and we can get back to our golfing. Been real cold in Illinois and surrounding states in the Midwest. In Florida when it gets down into the 30 or 40 it's freezing to everyone.

It has been two weeks since I have played golf. I'll be playing outside our park on Tuesday and it will be a challenge. Longer courses can be a challenge when you are working a executive par 3 course....

Android-x86 KitKat 4.4.4 Build 10 with GAPPS, three new Windows launchers, Bluetooth (working!) and Mesa 10.5.9

Posted 01-08-2018 at 08:41 AM by exton (Exton's Blog)

Android-x86 KitKat 4.4.4 Exton Build 180108, version 10, is a ready!
This new version (180108) is basically the same as AndEX KitKat Build 160214. I have now upgraded some apps and added three new (Windows) launchers – Computer Launcher, Microsoft Launcher and Win 10 Launcher. To be able to run AndEX Oreo 8.1, which was released 180103, you’ll have to use a fairly new computer. AndEX KitKat runs also on older computers, which is one reason for me to remind you of the existence of AndEX KitKat...

NEWS 180103 about AndEX Oreo 8.1
My new build of Android x86_64 – andex-x86_64-oreo-8.1-gapps-aptoide-windows-1280mb-180103.iso can be installed to hard drive or on a USB stick. You can also run the system live. I.e. from a DVD or a USB stick. On some computers you’ll have to start up AndEX 8.1 in compatibility mode (VESA) though. NOTE: You can run AndEX Oreo Build 180103 on newer laptops and Desktop computers. The sound and video performance is generally very very good.

Today, I was using Mac Mail and I went to turn in my Timecard, so as "usual" I hit search in Mail.
I wanted to "see" what email for my timecard I turned in last week, but all Mail searches returned empty sets, in Mail and Spotlight.

I see the email, I search for it, and it says it's "not found", based on the search. I see it. I can touch it, copy/edit/forward if I want, just couldn't search for it.

And all my "smart mailboxes"...

Slackware is the first widely-used Linux system, which is still developing. Slackware has existed since 1993. In comparison with for example Ubuntu and Linux Mint, many people believe that Slackware is “difficult”. Any novice can quickly learn to use Ubuntu they say. My remaster of Slackware Current (14.2), which I call SlackEX 14.2/Current 64 bit Linux Live DVD/USB, is however just as easy to use as Ubuntu and/or Linux Mint. Some tend to complain that the Program Management in Slackware is awkward....
