    rocket reacted to hatcheckgirl in Nicaragua - 'There's no law'   
    A post I read on Instagram said that the brothers in Nicaragua are having their regional conventions in their own KHs, perhaps because it is not safe or viable to be in large venues. All talks will be streamed as there will be no live speakers. 
     
    I cannot verify this this as I don’t know the sister who posted it. However, if it’s true, it’s good they are receiving their convention food too. Things can change in a moment, as we know, but Jehovah always comes through.

    Thanks. That's exactly the problem I was having.
     
    Thanks, Lynn. I tried this and it is working now.
     
    I had already restored to factory settings several times to no avail, but that was some weeks ago. Today I tried unplugging the tv and it worked. I'm not sure if it's due to unplugging or it simply works when it wants, but so far it's going well.
     
    I understand that but right now using the browser is the only way to see the English subtitles. Until a couple months ago you could download the videos with subtitles, but not anymore, not sure of the reason.
     
    Thanks, that's a good suggestion. I have a Roku on an old tv we rarely use. I have have issues again I will connect it to this tv. Anyway there was an annoucement some time ago that English subtitles would not work on Roku for a time. Not sure if they are working now again.

    We have had some of the same issues. Mostly with jw.org
     
    Three things I have done which helps:
     
    1)  unplug the tv for 30 full seconds.
    if that doesn't help
     
    2) do a reset to factory settings
    you will loose all bookmarks, history etc
     
    3) disable automatic updates, check after restarting tv that auto updates are disabled.
     
    JW Broadcasting works better with the above but jw.org can only be accessed from JW Broadcasting. Not that great at tech stuff but like yourself neither Samsung help was much help nor jw.org and I have spent hours on the phone with both. Well actually only a few minutes with jw.org. Fact is the browser in your smart phone or tablet is 10 times more powerful than the browser in the Samsung tv. My wife has more patients to play with it and gets it to work every time, personally I'm ready to throw a rock through it.

    rocket got a reaction from Tortuga in Plane Stolen from Seattle Airport   
    Having work at an International Airport for 5 years during the construction of a new concourse I noticed that everyone of the ground crew looked the same. This guy worked "baggage" but was also "tow certified", so it would not raise an eyebrow to see him towing a plane to put it in service. The jobs are very fast paced and hard to keep up with anyone. At times it looks like a bee hive. It really doesn't surprise me that some one could do this. I remember in the days after 9/11 walking down a row of Alaska plane with their baggage doors open and thinking how easy it would be for a disgruntled ground crew member to toss grenades in one plane after another before being stopped. No one ever ask me what I was doing and I was free to look at or touch any plane on the tarmac.

    rocket reacted to Old in WT Library - Available for Download!   
    In the early days there was even a little underground work on an early version. There were several brothers working on a search engine for the NWT 'only'. this is addition to their other progarming resposibilities. The governing body had not yet recogized the need for a Bible and publication search engine. This was before we had the Folio NWT floppydisk collection. When one of the governing body made a visit to the department and would ask what they were working on they were told to respond in a somewhat devious answer.. Devious, not untrue. One brother left Bethel with the information and refined it to a search engine that a great number of us used in leu of the Folio Bible. It was a good program and would search any any of our publication that various brothers had copied to computer language, whichwere all publications at that time. The Insight Volumes required entering 18 floppy disks into the program. The brother that put his out did not provide any publications, Bible or otherwise. Only the search engine. The Branch did come out with strong statements on copywrites laws. But the basic fact of a copywrite is if you own a leagle copy of any copywrited material, you were free to have it in any form you preferred, but no sales.Some brothers that were selling publications for a donation were instructed to cease an desist. JWHess has mentioned this program but my 80 year old brain can't remember the name.

    I rode my motorcycle through that exact spot last year. There were several hundred of them crossing the road. We just sat still while several crossed less than 10 ft from our bikes. You have to respect their sheer size. I had no idea how big they were.

    He did a barrel roll, kinda sloppily but he did it...
     
    It was kind of heartbreaking to listen to, there are videos and recordings of audio of him and Air Control talking.
     
      He was someone else that really needed the Kingdom promise in his life.
     
    It's too bad that he didn't feel there was any other way out of his situation but to fly it into the ground..

    I’ve been amongst a herd of these animals . They are an amazingly well engineered creature with the ability to do a 180 by pivoting on their front legs. They can tolerate temperatures as low as -50* f and can stall calving for weeks to allow for more favorable weather. This bull clearly had minimal interest in doing harm. I’ve seen a bison cow toss a man like he weighed nothing.
         They can overturn a truck easily. And yet they will actively avoid stepping on you during a stampede ( they are more aware of their feet and potential for injury than domestic cattle and when your running through Badger hole and prairie dog terrain with the occasional rattlesnake we all should be).  And with all that sometimes they can be made into a stead.
