    Using emoji’s

    In the past when I’ve used emojis, I’ve always had to use the ones in the HTF posting software. If I used my keyboard on my iPad Pro, they didn’t show up. Now they do. For instance, this ♥️ was selected by hitting the globe key on my apple magic keyboard on my new iPad Pro. This one ❤️ is...

    The Terminal List

    I can’t say I’m surprised there’s no thread on this series, because IMHO, this is a boring show. For all the deaths and shoot ‘em ups, it’s somewhat boring because it’s poorly done. I also find it to be morally bankrupt. Our hero, played by Chris Pratt kills in cold blood. Sure, his wife and...

    Denon HDMI 1 Goes Out on 2nd Receiver

    HDMI 1 on my X4300H stopped working and I just moved the cable over to HDMI 2 and that worked. It’s happened on my Xk6500H too, HDMI 1 again. It was not the same cable. If it was the source (DVR) blowing the HDMI than it should blow HDMI 2 also, but that hasn’t happened for the extended...

    Alert Counter Frozen at 3!

    I’m using Chrome on my iPad Pro and the alert counter never goes below 3 for the 2nd day in a row. I’ve closed that window of Chrome and reopened it, but that did not fix it. If I get another alert the counter goes to 4 and when reading that alert it goes down to 3 but not lower. Ideas, pleas?

    Are These Real 8K High Speed Cables

    I was shopping on Amazon for some high speed cables to see if it would help with the screen blanking occurring with my ATV4K. So I ordered these: . When they arrived first thing I noticed is the packaging is good but there is no brand name. I took a picture of the cable. Is it marked correctly?

    Buying a Used Car

    A friend of mind, really, needs to buy a used car for under $14K. She needs an SUV style vehicle but a Honda Pilot, which I think is kind of a small SUV would work for her. Does anyone have a recommended online site for buying a used car? Consumer Reports has one and they also mentioned...

    Really? It’s Worth How Much? My Old X4300H.

    I got my Denon X6500H over a year ago to replace my old X4300H and the 4300 has just been sitting on the shelf. This morning I googled it to see what it might fetch in $$. I was pleasantly surprised to see the lowes price I could find to be $900 and prices went up to almost $1400. Is it...

    Who Needs a Pilot?

    I popular story today is that a private plane was landed in Florida today by a passenger with no flying experience. A tower employee who was also a flight instructor talked him thru the landing. Per the video, it looked like a decent landing. What I find remarkable is none of the news...

    Short Films by Danny Donahue

    I just watched a couple of his very short (5-6’) on YouTube, “Hell Creek” and “Beast of Prey” on youtube. Both had minimal casts, one or two, and a very small crew. However, for as long as they last, they far exceed most of the sci-fi Saturday night specials. I was especially impressed by the...

    Going to the Moon in 2025?

    I ran across this article here: https://arstechnica.com/science/2021/11/nasa-delays-moon-landings-says-blue-origin-legal-tactics-partly-to-blame/ It starts out being about a Blue Origins law suit that delayed things for 7 months. Then it goes on to say we are apparently developing two systems...

    Why Someone Gets the Publicity and Someone Doesn’t?

    Just watched “When Big Things Go Bad” or something like that on the history channel. In 1989 a DC10 engine explodes over Iowa and all 3 hydronic systems are destroyed. They’ve got no control of the plane. The pilots end up using engine thrust to steer the plane and can only turn right. It...

    App Store Credit?

    I just went into the App Store to check for updates and there are several. It also tells me we have a credit for over $75. Neither my wife nor I know where this came from. Short of calling apple, is there anywhere in the app that will tell me?

    Looking for a Version of Heart of Gold by Neil Young

    Maybe as long ago as 40 years there was a version of HOG that I loved. It was by a choral group like the Johnny Mann Singers, but not them. They were probably named after the director (like the JM Singers). I think he was German. For some reason I want to find this song. Any help here...

    Amazon Music Problem!

    As mentioned above I’ve been using the Amazon Music app to play music on my Denon X6500H AVR. It’s been easier to use and I can create playlists. About a week ago, when a song got down to 30 seconds, sometimes 10 seconds, it would skip to the next song. I would loose the nice screen display...
