This morning, I told Gerry, my husband, that I thought this new laptop computer gets awfully hot without doing anything in particular. «Well …», he said, «that’s all those rams at work. You wanted lots of RAM [Random Access Memory], now you’ve got them!»
When you buy a computer these days, they come pre-installed with a lot of, what’s often referred to as ‘bloat-ware’. I went and checked out what took up the most of the resources. Turned out the preinstalled, antivirus programme, McAfee used up 48%. They were on top. I’ve uninstalled that now – I prefer some free stuff. Defender, that comes with Windows supposedly isn’t bad at all, for example.
Can you have a favourite tree?
Back in the Spring of 2010, we were out driving around the countryside, when I laid eyes on this tree … or, in fact I think it was Gerry who saw it first. Regardless, it was so beautiful, in full bloom and the location with the rolling green hills! I’ve always treasured this photo.
