Good Morning

Alps 23.02 (7)

A photo showing the local stables where the horses, chickens, ducks and geese live. The alps are in the background and the group of white buildings on the left is where I live, across the main road which is between.

And today looks like another wonderful sunny day, but no time for walks unfortunately, but tomorrow is another day.

A funny thing happened yesterday on my Facebook account. There I was doing what a cyber golden oldie does on the computer, and there was something I wanted to do in Facebook, but it was probably not important, Facebook is in any case on the lower scale of importance in my life. However, I was locked out, Facebook refused entry. Was it something I said? It seems that someone from an unknown source was trying to gain access to my account. However, Facebook has a solution for everything, All I had to do was confirm four remarks I had made on my page from a list, and everything would be OK. Unfortunately I got the message that this was not working at the moment, try again later – which I did and so nothing happened. Somehow I found another path in this confusion and got to the bit where I could make a new password. No problem, just another password amongst the hundreds of others.

Of course, not just any password: it had to be long enough, be safe, and mix it up with strange signs. Eventually the deed was done and I breathed a sigh of relief when I arrived where I wanted to go. There remains the question who was this strange invader that decided to creep into my Facebook page. I have a sneaky feeling that it was me. I may have mentioned, most certainly mentioned, that I have a new iPad since yesterday. Of course they do not recognise my new source of writing, and so I was probably classified as spy, marauder, invader, unwanted element in the Facebook society: after all what is Facebook? Just a collection of computers doing what they do automatically, they have no though process, are just machines.

So the next step was to register this new password on my memory stick and print the new revised list. Next problem: my printer was not connecting. Solution: ask Mr. Swiss. This was a mistake, because he was busy doing other things on his computer. Eventually he came, saw and overcame my difficulties. It now and again happens, our printer connection now and again have a mind of their own. This is probably normal when you have four computers, one being an Apple, connection to the same printer. The solution was quite simple: remove my computer from the printed and re-add. I could at last print out my new password list and breathed a sigh of relief. I am very fussy about keeping my password information up to date. I have learned from my mistakes in the past.

So what could now possibye go wrong? Facebook is working and so is everything else, almost. I like to get push notifications from my cyber world members. I was getting them on my appliances, except for the new iPad. So this morning I went on a search to activate them. After a discussion with Mr. Swiss, where we had a few differences of opinion, I have still not found the situation. They appear everywhere, even on my older iPad, but the new iPad remains silent. Oh, the problems of a cyber golden oldie life.

I also have a problem with push notifications on my new iPad, they do not happen. My iPhone does it, my old iPad does it, but the new iPad does not do it. I like to keep trace of my daily cyber life, although Mr. Swiss finds it an annoyance when in the supermarket my iPhone constantly rings with a message and I really set it on the lowest tone. I am still searching for the solution. When I compare the settings on my new iPad with the old iPad they are exactly the same.

Otherwise everything is fine up to now. I had to re-order my medication and it will be delivered by special delivery next Tuesday morning. It is an expensive cargo, hence the special delivery. Now I have discovered I can order more than a month’s supply, so am going the whole hog for three months supply. I have an extra fridge in the basement and have no problem with storage. When the nurse said on the telephone I could order more than one month, I found that a good thing, but when I asked for a year’s supply, that was not possible.

And so today will be filled with a short  joyous cleaning session, cooking lunch and dinner and taking photos of my bird models outside. We will meet again later somewhere on the flip side.

  1. Good morning, Pat. Facebook gives many problems to many people. I’ve had my fair share of problems too. I got locked out of my old account. I simply tried to log in from a new location (Lisbon instead of Kathmandu) and couldn’t unless I entered the code which was sent to my Kathmandu mobile number. Problem: my Kathmandu sim card is with me in Lisbon and has now expired. So my first facebook account has gone forever. I hate when we are forced to give mobile phone numbers and it is getting more common now.

    Have a pleasant day, Pat. I have to go out to top up my transport pass for the next month. For €14.50 per month we can have unlimited travel by bus, train and metro in Lisbon. It’s wonderful value for us golden oldies.

    • My Facebook is now working perfectly with my new password. I also got a code on my telephone to unlock it all, but that doesn’t bother me so much. We don’t have landline, just our mobiles. Now all my online problems are solved for the time being, until the next one arrives.

  2. Let me know if you figure out the push notifications on the iPad problem, Pat. I don’t get them on mine either. The iPad is a couple of years old and I gave up trying to figure it out. My phone is always nearby and I hear/see them there.

    • I am ashamed to admit why it was not happening. I checked on my WordPress ap on the iPad (I have three in variations) and I discovered that yes, I was not logged in – silly me. I logged on and now everything is running smoothly. I am not sure about your problem, but there are a few hints in the word Press items in Google, so you might find something to help you. I no longer have problems, and they are arriving everywhere, on my phone and my two iPads. Otherwise go to setting on your iPad and check, perhaps there is something you have not done in that area.

  3. They keep changing google and Facebook, so it may just be a new version of the old social media site. When my Google site went down, it was a whole new “thing” when I put it up again. They got an entirely new section on security and you have to go to different places to put notifications in place (or remove them). Ditto Facebook. Just when you think you’ve got it, they change it. Again.

    • That is true. First of all I am locked out of Facebook because someone was trying to get into my account which was probably me from my new iPad. After going under the third degree questioning and examinations they let me in. Now everything was working but no notifications from WordPress until I realized that I was not logged into my account. Yes I did feel quite embarrassed, but it was one of those golden oldie moments. Sometimes you cannot see the forest because the trees are in the way.
