Here’s a summary of some of the things I learned and published this week.
You can follow my daily readings as they happen here. Below are a selected few, with commentary, from the past week. They’re posted to the blog daily under the title OTR Links.
- Whoever was in charge of spell checking is probably looking for a job right now. I wonder if the people who actually put the board in place knew but didn’t say anything or is it just teachers?
- I guess if there’s something people want and something that some people have, there will be a market for it
- St. Clair College is the latest to postpone classes and I suspect that we’re going to see more and more of this
- I have what would be considered a lower end Chromebook and it does so much that I would be hard pressed to get an expensive computer when I next upgrade
- A call from Windsor council to vaccinate all students – it should just be here, it should be everywhere
- Adobe releases a free cloud-based imaging program that I think so many people would appreciate
- This is really interesting – Duckduckgo is developing a desktop web browser not based on the Chromium engine
- This shouldn’t have to be a request – the living conditions that migrant workers live in are appalling
- Canadian television at it’s best – Still Standing is going into season seven. It’s amazing how communities are different and yet all the same when they get together in a hall to film the show
- If you have a Chromebook, you use Chrome OS and you just might really be interested in learning about these tips
- I know a lot of Harry Potter fans who will watch this and wish for a quick opportunity to see the movie
- I’ve always wondered why computer manufacturers don’t create their own anti-virus – after all, they should know their stuff better than anyone
- I’ve never had the desire but I see a lot of others doing this and it’s actually bad for your windshield wipers
- Now we have browser wars driving our new cars?

Sometimes, you just have to pony up the bucks and replace technology that isn’t functioning.
For years, we’ve enjoyed an indoor/outdoor thermometer on the kitchen counter. Jaimie and I look at it as we prepare for our walks.
When you’re told that it’s 50 degrees outside when you know that it’s close to zero, it’s time to replace things. I tried everything I could with the old one – new batteries, letting it sit overnight, put it in the freezer, but nothing would work.
“Jaimie” gave me a nicely wrapped new one for Christmas.
