This in my opinion would be childish and
would send exactly the wrong message. It would confirm all the
Conspiracy Theories Trump's supporters have been promoting
throughout the campaign. It's over, he won, and the future is what
Technically, of course this could be done.
But don't expect Anonymous or WikiLeaks to do it -- we learned
where they cast their votes during the hacking revelations.
How to back up photos and videos from
an SD card on your Chromebook
While I don't have a Chromebook, I do use
Google Drive to post pictures for family members rather
frequently. It's convenient for sharing, and copying and pasting
the sharing URL into an email message is pretty easy.

I'm thinking not so much this year as next

My Yahoo Account Was Hacked! Now What?
Actually, due to Yahoo waiting over three
years to tell us about the hacking, there is little we can do to
defend ourselves at this late date. Except, dump everything Yahoo
from your online activities and don't look back. If it weren't for
CCS using Yahoo Groups, I might have done this already, in spite
of my AT&T email account being powered by Yahoo.
Anonymous Threatens Trump Ahead Of

3 easy steps anyone can take now to
back up a PC
While this article slights local image
system backujps, I have one more reason not to like the content. I
have tried EaseUS Todo and Macrium Reflect backup programs. EaseUS
ToDo created Win PE bootable media which could not be used on my
tablet due to the screen size not matching the program's screen
size. All Restore options disappeared off the bottom of the screen
and could not be accessed. Macrium Reflect's WinPE Main Window
screen can be resized, so all options can be accessed, even on a
tablet screen. My point is, a backup program is only as good as
your ability to use it under all failure conditions.

Possible Solution to Stuck Printer
Thu Jan 26, 2017 10:49 pm
This is a useful article for Windows
users. In my Linux, things can get stuck in the printer queue
also. (Yes, that is how the word is spelled.) I have on occasion
simply removed the printer and set it up again (no restart
required to do this in Linux) just to avoid a lengthy job of
tracking down where the job was stuck and how to fix the problem.
But in Windows, this article outlines most of the solutions which
do not require a full system restart.
