In my weekly post, “Essener Tapete Special FX G67709 Streifen glitzer silver Vinyl Vliestapete Vlies“, I like to include a photo of something that I’ve taken from the previous week.

There was a time when I’d put my original camera around my neck and go looking for things to take pictures of. FD23808 - Eclipse Sketched Buildings Onyx Fine Decor WallpaperIt worked really well if I was lucky enough to find something worth snapping. Essener Tapete Special FX G67727 Ornament metallic Vinyl Vliestapete VliesNow, with the camera in my Smartphone, I always have the ability to take pictures in my pocket. It’s funny how many more pictures that I feel inspired to take this way. And better ones too.

Anyway, last week I was rolling up the solar blanket to the pool and noticed a spider in this huge web over my shoulder. Essener Tapete Special FX G67739 Steinfliese Fliese Vinyl Vliestapete VliesI watched for a minute until I realized what she/he was doing. The spider was traversing the web picking up the things that got caught during the night before.FD24108 - Solstice Jacobean Floral Grey Pink Fine Decor Wallpaper My mind flashed back to elementary school science where we learned how a spider doesn’t get stuck in its own web.

I was pleased with the picture as I got as close as I could to get a definition of the spider and the things caught in the web. Essener Tapete Speciale Fx G67682 Strisce Righe VinileAs per my regular routine, I took 2 or 3 pictures of the same thing so that I could get the best picture lest I move the camera while taking the picture.

Anyway, that’s the background for this post!

When I write my Sunday post, my routine was to grab the camera on my desk and flip through what I had taken and find one to include. Essener Tapete Speciale Fx G67724 Ornamento Metallico VinileThen, I would email or DM it to myself so that I could put it into the post. FD24451 - Insignia Grey Animal Print Design Fine Decor WallpaperSince it’s only a task that I do once or twice a week, the inefficiencies kind of bothered me but not enough to do anything about it.

However, in my readings lately on Windows 10, I’ve been reading about the Your Phone abilities. For the most part, the writers were excited about the concept of texting from your computer keyboard. I wasn’t as excited. FD24954 - Artisan Terrazzo White Fine Decor WallpaperCould there be more?

Out of boredom, I installed this on my phone and activated the utility on my computer. Unlike other synchronization things I’ve used, this really was seemless and easyEssentials HE11475 Aged Pewter Barcelona Solid Brass Dummy Full Plate Handle Set. Almost too easy, it seemed. The menu revealed what was available.

And, sure enough, there were my spider pictures. Estensione 4g 1M 13a Surge USB - Nera - Srgdu41pb2-mp(As well as the thunderstorm clouds coming in from Boblo Island)

To work on the post, there was none of this sending the picture to myself. I just grabbed it from the Your Phone app and bam, it was in my post.

I remember Arthur C. Clarke’s quote…

Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.

I had that moment!

I just wish that I’d done it sooner.

… TV dinner tables?

David Garlick was a week ahead of me on this one with his Twitter response to last week’s post.

Maybe that’s why he was a principal and I wasn’t.Europa GRG16M Metal Clad Garage Unit 63A RCCB 6A & 16A Type B MCBs - Amendment 3

Yes, there was the concept of the folding TV dinner table. There’s a bunch still for sale –

Currently, we don’t own a set but I do remember, as a child, of having a set that we kept behind the door going down to the basementEvakuierung Dosiertechnik Pumpe 1 Liter Teil Nr. 4985 By Laser - Neu. My wife’s parents had a set and used them as end tables down in their rec room.Ferngesteuertes Gateway 2 Kanal AM 433,92MHZ NICE FLO2R-S I stole the idea when furnishing an apartment at university. It was affordable, to be sure, from the second hand store. $5 a set, if I recall correctly.

They weren’t very solid. They appeared to be made of tin and had a flowered pattern on them and fluted edges. FESTOOL HW D10 20 M.BOHRSCHN, 490959They folded up neatly for storage and the concept was to put your dinner/supper on them so that you could watch television while eating. (TV dinners optional).

Or so the story goes…

In both our families like David’s, the television was turned off at meal times and we ate as a family around the kitchen table.'EVERLASTO' STRONG SOLID BRAIDED NYLON SASH CORD - No.6 (5MM) - VARIOUS LENGTHS In our case, the dining table was used for special dining occasions when we had company but mostly as a collection point for stuff at other times.

So, why did we have TV tables? For those fancy meals with company, they served as holders for the food as we loaded up buffet style. EXACT HSS Taper Drills 16 - 30 mm Conical Cone Cutter Drill Bit Hole TL582We also used them to play games like checkers, Monopoly, on them. But that was about it.

These days, I can’t remember seeing them out for sale in stores so I don’t know if they’re not there or they’re such a seldom-purchased article that they’re largely hidden. EXP-R10 MODULE D'EXTENSION RADIO 10 ZONESWe do see them when we’re out antiquing and it does bring back childhood memories!

For a Sunday morning, your thoughts?

  • Do you currently own a set of TV dinner tables?
  • Did you have them in your youth?
  • Were you allowed to eat and watch television at the same time?
  • Extensión Torre 10G Interruptor USB black - 2710u blackWhile the cheap tinny ones probably wouldn’t work, could you see a use for these type of table in your classroom?
  • Festool SYSTAINER T-LOC SYS 1 UNI 497692Given their price point and the portability, there has to be all kinds of functionality for these that I’m not aware of. Do you have a unique use for these things?

I could have used this when I got my Chromebook.

Now, a computer is a computer is a computer but there are little gotchas with various operating systems that take a bit of getting used to.FABORY B01200.062.0400 5 8 -11 x 4 Grade 5 Zinc Plated UNC (Coarse) Hex Head

I suspect that my learning with a new Chromebook was the same as others.

  • how do you CAPS LOCK anyway?
  • is there a files manager?FIRE RATED 4x3 Brushed Stainless Steel Ball Bearing Security Hinge EN1634
  • is there a Task Manager?
  • where did all the Function keys go and what do those new symbols mean?

And other things. Of course, they’re all easily found with a simple Google search but they’re all nicely laid out in this FABORY M04160.120.0060 M12-1.50 x 60 mm. Class 10.9 Fine Hex Head Cap Screws,.
