A 4 Kb file of me from my new moto phone, thanks to James. Had to copy 5Mb file into Paint and rename it to a smaller file. In Paint a 5Mb file is about 2 metres wide and 10 metres long. Wow. Now the image pixels are 12mm wide and 25 mm long. Way smaller picture.
For example surfing the www in Blackwater on 4G between 6pm and 9pm is a total waster of time, the town has a population of about 2,000 people and it’s so slow you can’t even view downloads using HTML. I gave up. So I surf at 3AM in Blackwater, and everybody reckons 5G is great. Give me a break. The WWW will never be anything more than 20Kb per second, people will flood the network with video files, both upload and download.
This planter box is nice job, a less than 12 Kb file.
Those of you who think 5G is fast, try uploading 100Mb video files to a computer in the middle of Australia at any time. I surf at 3 AM for a reason. At Dululu I doubt hardly anybody is using the silly bandwidth. It takes 2 seconds to upload a 20K file, and over several hours to upload a 5Mb file, go figure.
The picture files were copied into paint and renamed into a tiny 12K to 4K file, not that silly 5Mb file, who wants print copy quality these days, when you have digital world viewing of files? Why don’t cameras have options. I can’t stand 5Mb files, simply because my 3G Network cannot handle them?
Kate has nice planter boxes, grow your own vegies. That’s nice.
Drat, the phone takes 1 to 6M pictures, not the usual 20K pictures I prefer, hence the upload is way too slow, and my 3G is not uploading the files. Bother
Well I figured out with moto E6s help on www, to change my settings for charge cord to FTP file transfer
and transfer brand new files, thanks to my Son for this gift.
Off to Dululu this weekend to round up all the geese and chooks for the big move.
A Practical Comparison of Mastodon and Micro.blog. It seems TWTXT is not the only alternative to tweets out there?
Actually 3:38 am my local time :)
Finished bracing the chook pen, walled up sheet of roofing iron, fixed door, made a window
The 100yr old barn, can’t continue falling over any more.
I hope somebody one day, loves this old 115 yr old house number one, as much as I did renovating it. She was originally built in 1917, and added to in 1952, with pennies in the walls to verify this fact.
Dane wants me to build one of these/ have the frame, roof. Have to make some wagon wheels.
Our pressure pump ran out of water. we finally are taking out more water than it’s flowing in.
This is a problem for any off grid living, learning to live within your means.
Sorry James cannot create account in Belong.com.au, not sure why, press Create account and go over the same menu to create Account.
Tried out a brand new hedger the Stihl ASA 8500 nice light very quiet.
Compared to the Stihl ASA 8600, little heavier (400 gram more) and older, hence louder.
Both electric 18Volt, both nice.
The long 12 hour day went nicely :)
my mobile phone last night had a wash in the washing machine, the screen got water logged, and now the phone is RIP. Where do I buy another $10 phone from Telstra from? Mine older one was unique I an sure, maybe even a dinosaur :)
