    I now have two password managers, one regular and one for the travel phone. I'm making a set of important passwords that can be easily wiped and restored, few enough that manual sync is ok. Experimenting with new ideas for travel security practice.

      Yes, I'm a lousy investor who ignores annual meetings. But I voted my tiny number of shares for the proposal to kick Apple into being more active about diversity at exec level. It won't pass, but it will say that shareholders want to see more. And I do.

          @tomcat So much ugly behavior, and now even more backed by the power of the government. It's hard to feel I can have any impact to change it. I keep trying.

            @tomcat The single thing that disturbs me most about what's happening now is the discovery that so many of my fellow citizens were just waiting around to be made comfortable denigrating the rest of us for existing. Which they now feel perfectly happy to do

              Trans teen wrestler was barred from competing in boys' events. He's now the subject of a lawsuit to forbid him from not just the girls' league, where he is undefeated, but both. But, sure, it's about bathrooms. http://tinyurl.com/hdc74ld

                Your Douglas Adams quote of the day: "Many people have speculated that if we knew exactly why the bowl of petunias had thought that we would know a lot more about the nature of the Universe than we do now." And, by the way, change your passwords.

                  I don't remember so many articles continuing to reference the "Resolute desk" after an inauguration. I wonder how many people know where it came from. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Resolute_desk

                      @tomcat I only use it because so many people don't post anywhere else. When adn shuts down and my stuff no longer is cross posted, I can't decide if I will care. They make it more and more difficult to simply use the service to keep in contact with folks.

                        Updated my phone, had to finally update fb and install messenger. Every time I open it, it asks to enable notifications. And says I have a new notification. That is a warning I don't have notifications enabled. If you don't hear from me, I've rage quit fb.

                          My personal image of Palm Beach is a sign I saw at the end of Worth Avenue, which was an upscale shopping district decades before anyone used that term. It dedicated the beach to the people of Florida. And was next to a boarded-up beach access stairway.

                              Reading national news about Oroville reminds me why I look for local disaster news sources. The impressive photo of the main spillway is catchy on the front page, but get it right on where the problem is. SacBee has the real deal. http://www.sacbee.com

                                Made an old phone a minimal data travel device. I want to access my regular iCloud email by web, but can't. If it thinks you are a mobile browser, it tells you to configure iCloud for iOS. If you can pretend you aren't, you can login but page won't scroll.

                                    Cruising through images from the New York Public Library, there's a collection called "The Pageant of America." The first image in the set is the Oseberg ship in situ. Um, ok.

                                        The Japanese garden Trump and Abe toured used to be a public park. I haven't seen it in decades because now it's only accessible by paid ticket during museum hours.
