  1. This might help... https://www.pugetsystems.com/labs/articles/Technology-Primer-Low-Voltage-RAM-150/ Older {still waiting for the 'Wiser'}
  2. There is a Roku discussion here somewhere... Search Roku in JWTalk and you will find the Topic. I don't know how to paste the link... sorry Older {still waiting for the 'Wiser'} https://r.tapatalk.com/shareLink?url=https://jwtalk.net/forums/topic/36132-jwb-app-on-roku-not-working-help-please/&share_tid=36132&share_fid=69068&share_type=t Older {still waiting for the 'Wiser'}
  3. I want to programm DNA of a tree to grow tree houses. That was we can 'twig' it as we progress or need to move. Older {still waiting for the 'Wiser'}

  5. I have trouble getting programmes switched over to the sd card on my samsung tablet. I use it just for the meeting, and I only update programs I use. I have uninstalled as much bloat-wear as I can. This model (P-600) is no longer supported. Still running Android v5 {lollipop [emoji517]} and has not had any updates. So it's is probably part OS dependant, and device dependant. My phone (also Samsung) has no problems as it is running Android v8 (Oreo [emoji514]) Older {still waiting for the 'Wiser'}

  7. I don't know if this was on another thread, but Australia is fast becoming a secular nation with the 2016 census showing: No religion – 30.1% v Catholic – 22.6% If atheism was a religion (now there is an oxymoron), it's the first time anyone beat the Catholics. http://www.abs.gov.au/AUSSTATS/abs@.nsf/mediareleasesbyReleaseDate/7E65A144540551D7CA258148000E2B85?OpenDocument Older {still waiting for the 'Wiser'}
  8. I used to. I'm the old days. Early 70's I was doing what was then called the 'Radio Trades TV Technician' when digital side started to open. I switched over to 'Microprocessor Applications' where we did machine code on the Motorola 6800. I also did machine code for the Zilog Z-80. CP/M was the 8 bit operating system by Digital Research and BASIC was popular. The IBM PC didn't hit Australia till early 80's. There were 3 choices of OS: CP/M86 or PC Dos or UCSD-P System. You then had to install your I/O interfaces (now called drivers) to match your keyboard, screen and printer to the box. Then you would set up the codes for bold, underline, italics etc, if you had a fancy printer. Digital Reasearch pitched it's DR-DOS against Microsoft, who took the OS back from IBM, and starting pushing Dos 3.0. IBM invented its own OS called OS-2. Basic was looked down on, so I learnt Pascal. That was supposed to be the next big thing. Visual Basic grew. Pascal died. What I remember most is the changeable nature of the industry. I spent a lot of time learning all the current and upcoming info, went to the US trade shows, did product launches on Jumbo Jets (Data General DG-1) and was riding the crest of the PC boom. Yet almost all of those companies and products all fell away. I walked away from the industry mid-80's and didn't touch any technology for years. Even IBM left the PC market, selling to Lenovo. (The PC Junior never even made it Down-under, even though IBM built a PC factory over here.) Sorry for the long winded answer to your question... Yes, but no. All my languages are dead. And it has been so long that I would struggle to come up with some clean code. The best bit of code I used was a full Accounts package that was loaded with the magnetic strip on a credit card. You would start the PC, then swipe the card, and you were good to go. 4k ram. 2x 8inch floppies for data storage. NEC PC. Microsoft had a game called Decathlon. All ran from a 160 kb floppy on 4k ram.... Wow. A watch has more power nowadays! Older {still waiting for the 'Wiser'}
  9. I would love to see a cart poster offering this!!!! Older {still waiting for the 'Wiser'}

    Maybe it's those fancy 'key less' cars where you just have a 'fob', which is more like a proximity sensor. When you walk to the car, it automatically unlockes, and you just press the start button. Bit out of my budget... Older {still waiting for the 'Wiser'}

    I'm confused.... My car key has 2 small buttons to push to lock and unlock. A little red light flashes when the button is pressed When it is not pressed, I am assuming it is off. (NO red led). How is it they can get some code from my key when it is 'off'? I have heard of 'code catchers' that have scanners, that when I press the button, they catch and record (and then replay) the code. But I do not understand how they catch a code 10 feet from the the bedroom window... Older {still waiting for the 'Wiser'}
  12. All out. They did give them anti-anxiety pills.... Older {still waiting for the 'Wiser'}
  13. Kindle is a good buy! Older {still waiting for the 'Wiser'}
  14. I am happy with my Samsung. It is outdated but still going strong (4years) https://www.techradar.com/news/mobile-computing/tablets/15-best-android-tablets-in-the-world-905504 Above are some suggestions. Younger ones usually get by with 7 or 8 inch. I use 10.4" with my glasses. Speed will also be a factor, ie faster processor speed =more dollars. For jw app, the slowest will work fine, but when playing games, you will notice the difference. If you give me a Max $ you want to spend, I can give you a short list...
