  1. My wife, daughter and son in-law and I are going to the Special Convention in Tbilisi Georgia in July but after that we are flying to Dubrovnik Croatia. Anyone have any Croatia suggestions? We could stay in Dubrovnik, travel up to Split or even head over to Bosnia or Montenegro. We fly into and out of Dubrovnik but we'll rent a car so a little travel would be OK and we'll find an Airbnb to stay in. I see there are no english speaking Congregations close by, but going to a meeting and service would still be a blast!
  2. Brief mention of Jehovah's Witnesses toward the end of the article. https://themoscowtimes.com/news/hrw-declares-2017-dark-year-for-independent-voices-in-russia-60217
  3. Special Convention 2018

    Georgia's selection started yesterday and my wife and I get to go along with my daughter and her husband! Two others from our KH were also selected. For all of us Georgia was our first choice. So excited! (Except for the 30 hour trip to get there)
  4. New article in the Moscow Times about JW appeal. https://themoscowtimes.com/news/jehovahs-witnesses-appeal-russias-extremist-label-58922
  5. Has anyone else used the Alexa skill "JW Access"? It works super good and I don't think it's a copyright problem because it does not store anything but just just streams from JW.org (but correct me if I'm wrong). I'm not sure if I should post the web site but it's easily googled. These are not in Alexa's "voice" it's right from the JW.org site. This is what it can get Alexa to do according to the website: JW Access is an Alexa skill to link to, and play, media available on JW.org, the official website of Jehovah's Witnesses. The idea for this skill stemmed primarily from a desire to assist those who have a visual impairment and might not be able to navigate the website easily. However, it is also very enjoyable to listen to content, such as original music, while working around the house. Example phrases: Talks: “Alexa, ask JW Access to play morning worship” Music “Alexa, ask JW Access to play original music” "Alexa, ask JW Access to play children's music" “Alexa, ask JW Access to play kingdom Melodies” “Alexa, ask JW Access to play kingdom Melodies, Chorus” “Alexa, ask JW Access to play kingdom Melodies, orchestrated” “Alexa, ask JW Access to play kingdom Melodies, Meetings” “Alexa, ask JW Access to play song number 149” (or any song number between 1 and 151) The Bible Listen to dramatic Bible readings. Dramas Listen to audio dramas Weekly Bible Reading: “Alexa, ask JW Access to play this week’s Bible reading” “Alexa, ask JW Access to play last week’s Bible reading” “Alexa, ask JW Access to play next week’s Bible reading” Weekly Watchtower Study “Alexa, ask JW Access to play this weeks Watch tower Study” “Alexa, ask JW Access to play next weeks Watch tower Study” “Alexa, ask JW Access to play last weeks Watch tower Study” Alexa’s standard “Next”, “Previous”, “Pause”, and “Resume” commands are always available.
  6. Home security cameras

    I have a "Ring" doorbell. It records both motion and has the ability to talk to someone at the door that rings it, even if you are not home. It's not really a security camera but it works as one. The range is adjustable from 180 degrees down to about 45. You can also adjust the distance from about 60 feet to around 10. It keeps the recordings on a cloud for I think $15 a year. Super easy to install. Check out the reviews on Amazon.

  8. I did, but it seems much better. Random books and magazines here and there. The big problem I had was downloading music. A few time I tried to download the Piano music and it locked up the program so bad I had to uninstill/reinstall AND reload all the data even though I had it on an SD card. Still afraid to try again so my tablet is music-less.
  9. Sorry, I just re-read the title of your post........ My bad. You mean just the size of the BACKUP file. Makes total sense it's so small since it's just data (notes). It should never slow you down. A mg of notes would be A TON.
  10. On my Samsung Android tablet the program it self is 1.75 GB with 42.52GB of data. I have mostly everything downloaded expect for Monthly Broadcasts and Branch Updates. On my Surface Pro 3 the program is 1.61GB, not sure on the data but I'd guess it to be about the same as my tablet. I very well could be wrong but I think the kb file you are looking at is small because it is just the size of the launch exe file not the whole program. Someone correct me if I'm wrong. Sorry, now I re-read it........ you mean just your back up file........ sorry.
  11. Didnt know where to post this... feel free to move. I have Surface Pro 3 running Windows 10 and I use Onenote to take my Convention notes. Today I spent some time entering the Convention Program into Onenote doing one page for each talk. If you notice the Program has the theme scriptures listed and all you have to do is tap on them to go to the scripture. When I copied these over to Onenote they won't direct to the scripture because I'm assuming it's no longer within the same program. Onenote gives me the option to edit the hyperlink of the scripture. Any thoughts on what to change to get it to open the JW LIBRARY app? The very first scripture is Galatians 6:9 and the current hyperlink is jwpub://b/NWTR/48:6:9-48:6. Because it's an App I'm having a hard time finding the source in Windows file manager. Maybe it can't be done, but it would be nice.
  12. Windows 10 is available too......
  13. From The Moscow Times Russia’s Phony Jehovah’s Witnesses How state television framed a bunch of university students to make this Christian group seem extra scary. https://themoscowtimes.com/articles/russian-students-framed-as-jehovahs-witnesses-in-field-trip-to-crowd-courtroom-57684
  14. I guess I'm the news nerd....... Russia's Supreme Court began a hearing Wednesday to potentially ban the Jehovah's Witnesses and declare it an extremist organization in the country. http://fxn.ws/2oa7KTQ
  15. From The Moscow Times... Russia's Supreme Court has refused to recognize the country's Jehovah's Witnesses as victims of political repression. https://themoscowtimes.com/news/jehovahs-witnesses-banned-in-russia-57635
