A few smiles:
My doctor asked if anyone in my family suffered from mental illness.  I said, "No, we all seem to enjoy it."
I thought the dryer made my clothes shrink.  Turns out it was the refrigerator.
My bucket list:  keep breathing.
Camping:  where you spend a small fortune to live like a homeless person.
Just once, I want a username and password prompt to say:  "close enough."
Being an adult is the dumbest thing I have ever done.
 I'm a multitasker.  I can listen, ignore and forget all at the same time!
Retirement to do list:  Wake up.  Nailed it!
Went to an antique show and people were bidding on me.
When you can't find the the sunshine.
I don't have grey hair.  I have wisdom highlights.
Sometimes it takes me all day to get nothing done.
 I don't trip, I do random gravity checks.
My heart says chocolate and wine, but my jeans say, please, please, please, eat a salad!
 I'd grow my own food if only I could find bacon seeds.
Losing weight doesn't seem to be working for me, so from now I'm going to concentrate on getting taller.
Some people are like clouds, once they disappear it's a beautiful day.
Common sense is not a gift. It's a punishment because you have to deal with everyone who doesn't have it.
I came.  I saw.  I forgot what I was doing.  I retraced my steps, got lost on the way back and now I have no idea what's going on…

The name should be a clue that this is from a group of truly dedicated, pun-loving geeks! Here is a list of their other photograpy-centric apps. Another clue is the bare-bones download page. If nothing else, you can get an interesting view of the installation process for most any OS you can think of. :D (Bonus points if you can identify more than 4 of the supported OS from the 11 graphics at the top of the Install page. :doh:)

I have no idea how well this app works but the (one) review I read:
Quote from: Graham Houghton Photo Blog
...has more tools than Lightroom, and those tools have more advanced features to help you achieve your creative vision. Darktable is a free alternative for editing your RAW files and managing your photos...
I’ll continue using this program for the next month for both RAW and JPEG files to judge how well it performs and how easy is it for me to remember how to use it! [emphasis added]
As Graham says; Good luck! :toothgrin: :yes:

"Frank" is a planned 'social' site by Mike Lindell (Mr. Pillow). :coolio:
I can only assume that is a word created from the first letters of a five word phrase which I will only reveal in a PM. :WOW:
Quote from: NewsWeek
...his new social media site will give its users a "bonus" if they are kicked off YouTube.

No, your info never "dies". Even when you "Cancel" an account, they tell you that it is only canceled if you never sign in again. If you mentioned anything about your life, it's still there and they will continue to offer you as a "friend" to some one.

I may be a bit 'rusty' on he wording, it was decades ago when I tried to "cancel". But the text made a deep impression on my disgust for their "privacy" policy even back then. I'm sure the vast majority of folks think they are a free service.
Quote from: Wikipedia
The phrase was in use by the 1930s, but its first appearance is unknown.
Just as American bars offered high-salt food for anyone who bought a beer, these "serives" create larger and larger 'appetites' for the 'service' (which is collecting info from as many folks as possible and selling it, of course).

I plan on joining FRANK when it opens up, and if it works, I'll leave FB.

What is Frank? I tried Googling it and got nada. There are various alternatives to FB out there, some of which look great...but couldn't find anything called "Frank"....and took me to a bitcoin site, LOL.
