I have ordered with Amazon a treadmill to exercise my legs. I received a big package containing the treadmill and a manual. The manual referred to an electric motor which I could not find in the package. Since it was on Sunday i coud not phone the firm to ask why. So I went to the website, found a blog and discovered that the model I had bought had no electric motor, only a rotating wheel. They had sent me the wrong manual. This happened often when, buying a computer or a printer you got also a manual. Now all you get is a leaflet which gives you some instructions in 20 languages. If you need a manual you have to search for it on the Web.

The computers of the Voyagers have programs written in an outdated assembler language, according to NASA, and maybe NASA had problems finding programmers who knew that assembler. Having worked with theZilog Z80 assembler, maybe I can start a new career. We used eight inch floppies,, 20 MByte Winchester disks and 10 Mbyte tapes, on which we made daily incremental backups.

I have a Windows 10 HP 500-152ea which connects via Wifi to a HP Envy 500 printer. The same printer is connected via USB cable to a SUN AM20 workstation of 2008 vintage running SuSE Leap 42.2. The printer acts also as scanner for both systems. It is sometimes more difficult to find the correct drivers for the Linux PC after a kernel upgrade. Another HP Linux laptop is connected via USB cable to a Canon MX395 printer. I have always had the greatest respect for HP products, since using them at the University.

In Italian calcio stadiums visiting fans are confined to an area, usually in one of the two curves, to separate them from the local fans, often organized in clubs. Compare this to the cyclists fans, who applaud all riders of every team and nationality, often escorting the riders while they pedal on a steep climb with the danger of making them fall notwithstanding the Police motorcycles trying to open a path in the crowd.

For whom the bell tolls
dr.SETI, a SETI friend of mine
Charles E.Merrill, my teacher at Thomas Jefferson School in St.Louis, MO, and a writer. His brother, James Merrill, was a poet.
R.I.P. to both

They say we shall have to buy new TV sets in Italy because a new protocol willl be used to work on different frequencies while today's frequencies will be assigned to cell phones. I have a Samsung LED TV bought in 2014 and I am using it mainly as a monitor for a Windows 10 PC. It is also connected to a Sky decoder. It seems that I shall have to buy a new decoder too, and Sky is already advertising the new decoder.

Ma cosa gli danno da mangiare a questi norvegesi? Carne di renna, come ha detto Fabio Fazio a Filippa Lagerback (svedese) nel programma RAI "Che tempo che fa" dopo che la Svezia ha umiliato l'Italia a calcio. Filippa e' una signora alta e bionda,come tutte le svedesi.
