"h" is for "hidden"

I noticed this pint sized Windows feature the other day while I was applying the Hidden attribute to some of the more (artistic) photos in my collection. Yeah let’s go with that. You can choose a file(s), then get their Properties panel with a right-click and the letter “r”, then tap the letter “h” for “Hidden” <—- no…

"Simple Music Player"

I’ve been trying a paired-down mp3 player app for audio books on a Nexus 7 tablet. Link at the bottom.

There are probably tons of other minimal players to choose from but this seems good enough for the purpose.

I can get the tablet to play books for about a day and 6hrs on a charge, a day and 18 hrs if “battery saver”…

Google Photos - shortcuts

If you sometimes use Google Photos from a browser, and click on an image to open it, Shift+D should Download the original photo (not the thumbnail), and there is Shift+R to Rotate.

You can see the list with the key…

You're The Fix-It

I have something to offer Hackerspace— and I’m sure there’s a hack in here. Today I got a call from a Christian friend who had read something about making a gratitude list of ten things each day for the coming year.

She was in a good mood today, I could tell. And that’s good—- and more power to her, may her joy not…

How To Get a Groan

In the Old West, there occurred a strange incident in a town whose name does not matter. It seems that a cowhand went crazy and ran himself through one of those horse-driven transport coaches, and out the other side. People wondered what exactly the man was up to. Later, it was agreed that he had been going through a…
