20th Anniversary

August of 2022 marks the 20th Anniversary of this website. While this website does focus on tech, there are times when it does go off topic. This is one of those times.

A new section is being constructed for the last frontier state, Alaska.

Within six days, hundreds of photos were shot covering Anchorage, Wasilla, and Seward.

Having family in the 49th state for over thirty years is concerning that it took this long to visit this state.


Webside Upgrades

Some sections of the website will have icons to switch from certain pages, within a section of the website. This is being tested on the Alaska section that has been added this week (still under development).

In addition, a new slide show control will be added as well. The current version will display images in a random order (with the posiibility of duplicates).


Not all USB (type C) chargers are the same

Many devices are using USB (type C) chargers these days including computers such as Chromebooks and Raspberry Pi's.

Just because these devices have the same end that will work with your mobile phone, doesn't mean that you should use them to charge your phone.

These computer devices require additional amps to charge their batteries or operate them that are higher than the amps used on your phone.

Using the wrong charger (not the one that came with your phone) can create the following:

Overheating

Cracking of the mobile device

Possible battery explosion

Voiding of the warranty because the approved charger wasn't used.

Amps are the killer to mobile electronics. Too many can destroy the device.

Be wise when charging your electronics.
