simon has a windows laptop and he is getting trouble connecting to the home wifi router. my friend who uses a apple laptop, and i , using a chromebook have no trouble connecting to it, but he is .

his laptop has forgotten the password to connect to my router and have connected to another person’s router in the same building. how that can happen when he have not got that person’s password is a mystery. though i suspect he is not really connected because he cannot get onto the internet with it.

maybe i am wrong to blame it all on windows. but it is a fact that ever since i stopped using windows, i have no trouble with gaining access to the internet. no virus to bother about. so that whenever i get telephone calls from people with foreign accents telling me i got a virus in my computer and telling me what to do, i can tell them i got a chrome book so no need and put the phone down on them. it saves a lot of bother.

i would say to anyone who dont want to bother with all that virus and stuff, just get a chromebook. make your life simpler why dont you. unless u are the type who wants to make your life difficult, than carry on using windows. 

added. 12.26 sunny 14.4C looking out onto a bright calm blue sky sunny day makes me wonder why people want to live permanently on a yacht and sail all over the world. this thought came to me because i read this article about a couple who were rescued from their yacht during rough seas when their rudder broke . they have been living life on the sea for 7yrs and this thing happen to them. they were sailing in the southern hemisphere where it is summer, so you would think those storms associated with winter wont happen. but of course there are no rules that say winter storms wont happen in summer haha… i guess even if they are not getting too old for it, (they are very experienced sailors so they will be ok), their yacht is getting past it. even if u maintain it in tiptop condition there is no guarantee that your new rudder wont break, the sea can be very strong and break things even if it is new.

it makes me think… i have been living in this flat for 25yrs and hardly need to worry about maintaining it in tiptop condition. this is because there are other people whose job it is to worry about those things. haha. that is the beauty of living in a  flat as opposed to a house. (all those who are growing old in a house now, might seriously consider downsizing to a flat. it is much warmer than a house for one thing. )

 unlike a yacht where u have to otherwise this kind of thing happens.living life dangerously. it does not appeal to me. and having to rely on a piece of floating ‘coffin’ does not appeal to me actually. but i guess it takes all sorts to make a world.

i know everyone says to live u must experience everything. hence people make up bucket lists and lists on things u must do before u die… but to me i only want to experience nice things and even then not all of them; i dont mind if i dont ever experience those bothersome/nasty things.
