Reinhard:

Please ask that genius son of yours to start making those snow sensors. It would also be every nice if he could fly over and install them for those of us that are too dumb to be able to do it on our own. #jealous

You really need a snow meter
I think that's what the white pole is! He probably measures down from the top and subtracts that number from the known(?) length... If he can't see or find the pole, he just goes back inside to warm up!! cmu:-) It's too dangerous to be outside, anyway! [headbang] [cold] [freeze]

Dear Blick and WeatherCat drought sufferers,

Well, the last three days have been answers to prayers here in much of the drought-stricken West. At our mountain home we have recorded 2.64 inches (6.71 cm) of precipitation. And this morning, we awoke to a pleasant surprise: 3 inches (7.62 cm) of snow. Now if I only had an electronic snow sensor like Reinhard...

Congratulations on all the precipitation!   [tup]  Thanks for the lovely pictures also!  Definitely a preview of Winter in your corner of the world!

Cheers, Edouard  [cheers1]

General Computing/Macintosh / Is your modem also an IP router? (Was: Mojave??)
« Last post by elagache on October 05, 2018, 10:54:40 PM »
Dear Weatheraardvark and WeatherCat homeowners with more of a local area network than they imagined,

The bizarrness continues.  For some reason I got the idea to reboot my modem again.    All of the IP cameras came back online, checked with the modem and all the IP addresses are there as well. I can even get Directv.com to work again.   
. . . . .

Does your modem also act as an IP router that assigns IP addresses via DHCP?   If so it is possible that the router got hung up somehow and wasn't assigning IP addresses to your devices.  That is one way to produce the symptoms you were observing.  These IP routers are basically little computers in their own right so they can get hung up when something goofy happens that their firmware cannot handle.

Cheers, Edouard  [cheers1]

Autumn looked quite different this morning.

General Computing/Macintosh / Re: Is there a secret chip in your Mac?
« Last post by xairbusdriver on October 05, 2018, 07:18:19 PM »
That's probably true. It's a rather long report/story, but it appears that most of these chips are in "servers", not in the hardware most consumers use personally. That's not very comforting, however, since the chips have been found in several government/military equipment where much more than our passwords are located. The story claims that Apple severed their use of Elemental servers in 2015 after replacing around 6,000 of them.

Perhaps I should edit my 'click-bait' topic title? ;)

As I said:

it is an indication that the form creators have considered the users when they automatically insert editable fields
It's called being "user-friendly". :) I've used 'annotations' occasionally, but mainly need text boxes so I can format individual parts of the text. It's just another case of Apple providing more than we sometimes even know. ThU32:-) However, I believe most Mac users would agree that we've certainly paid for it! [rolleyes2]

So. all I need to do is let my thumb heal (had surgery last week,  doing fine). and get my tailbone in order (might have a stress fracture,  ).  and we are going to be just fine.

Ouch. How about a little "take it easy?"

at my age, I am going to take it anyway I can get it.

I did get this from Foscam:Sorry, the newest Safari blocks the camera’s plugin, please go to https://www.foscam.com/downloads/app_software.html download the VMS software to manage your cameras. Thank you.

Best Regards,
