Oryx and Crake is at once an unforgettable love story and a compelling vision of the future. Snowman, known as Jimmy before mankind was overwhelmed by a plague, is struggling to survive in a world where he may be the last human, and mourning the loss of his best friend, Crake, and the beautiful and elusive Oryx whom they both loved.
I got my Verizon MIFI working once again. When I say it is working that means that I get 1-2 signal bars on the MIFI device when in the Park. When doing a speed test that means I’m getting 1.78 to 9.19 Mbps download and 320 Kbps to 1.19 mbps upload speeds. When I went to Reserve on Saturday I opened the MIFI and got 5 bars with speeds of 57.0 Mbps and 4.59 Mbps. Verizon claims to have coverage in the Park area but it ranges from poor to worse.
Some computer usage trivia. I have always had a difficult time doing a search when highlighting a word and then right clicking on a touchpad. I have my laptop configured for a two finger click but have been doing it all wrong by pressing rather than tapping. Now that I know what I have been doing wrong I need to remember how to do it right. I’m having a lot of problems breaking the old habits so far.
“…particularly for African Americans and Hispanic workers and veterans, you know, the workers without high school diplomas…” — President Biden
The president has been catching a lot of grief about this statement. What I find very interesting is all of the criticism that is directed toward him focuses on his disparagement of African Americans and Hispanics. It seems that what he had to say about veterans was perfectly acceptable.
