Great to hear your cruise was enjoyable, also. 👏 We've had several, but one suffered from low water during the drought in much of Europe.

Tech / Re: Safari update

In my experience, if the version of Safari needs something newer than 10.14, the installer won't offer it nor allow you to install it. Most Safari updates are for improved security or for things like new features in CSS or javascript, not new features in an OS.

Ironically, I re-viewed an older (2017) TedTalk about how to spot bad statistics. Of course, the posted article is more about marketing claims than actual stats. :p I'm just happy that I don't need any "professional" computer. At 80, I may never buy another Mac. My current model was also built in "2017"! :dntknw: :doh: :whistling:

Just made the update to my old iPad yesterday. iPhone 13 still at 17.0.3. I'll just wait a while.

I just click the Skip Ads button at the end of five seconds. I also rarely watch channels I'm not subscribed to, so I give them the best ratings I can by watching the minimum amount of ads I can get away with.I haven't used an ad blocker in several years. I can ignore things for way longer than 5 seconds! :dntknw: :thumbup: :rofl:

I have so few files stored on-line that I cannot justify spending anything for that task. My wife does have OneDrive access because it is connected to her use of a couple of M$ apps. Whatever it costs, she is worth it! :Thinking: :thumbup: :notworthy:

Community / FedEx accepts 50th Boeing 777
« on: September 30, 2023, 04:13:08 PM »
Blatant proud post this...
Quote from: FedEx Press Release
...FedEx currently has 55 777F aircraft in its fleet (3 leased, 2 bought used), nearly twice as many as the nearest competitor in the air cargo industry. FedEx is scheduled to take delivery of [its 59th] 777F aircraft by early FY25...

50 in 50!
FedEx Express Celebrates Another Milestone

50th new 777 in our 50th year of operation!

Would have laughed at anyone who suggested something like this back in 1974!

We've traveled many times to Europe and even Vietnam/Cambodia with iDevices and once with a MBP. We have always used a voltage converter (with multiple plug adaptors) and our regular Apple adaptors. Have never tried using a hair dryer on a converter. Actually have never needed a hair dryer, since most hotels and even B & B's always provide one that works on the local voltage. Hair dryers use in the hundreds (even thousands!) of watts, most converters are not built for that. :no2:

Maybe a variable, step-down transformer would work. Those usually weigh ~50 pounds [~22.6kg]! Might want to ship that ahead... :Thinking: :coolio: :rofl:

Have never taken a non-portable Mac. :blink:
