Technology Issues

Tuesday, July 28, 2020

The larger animals have been keeping me very busy and caused me for too long to neglect my parrot. Yesterday, when my arm entered his cage, he hopped aboard eagerly and quickly shifted upwards onto my shoulder. After I grabbed a hat, towel, sunglasses, and a GPS (to practice using its capabilities of mapping and waypoint-setting) we set off on a leisurely stroll through surrounding streets. Over our route of nearly two-miles, I created a waypoint at each moment of interest. Although having seen many of those sights before, they’ve been routine and forgetful. But this walk created GPS and camera records that recall cool sightings.

. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

One hour later: It’s impossible to recall those cool sightings from photos in my iPhone. The pictures taken yesterday won’t open in the editing files on this computer. Oddly, the phone saved them in a .jfif mode that seems impossible to convert to .jpeg. I’m running out of time so will end this blog. I’ll keep trying to understand what has caused the problem and hope it’s fixable.

Otherwise, Peaches and I again will take a walk with the electronics.

Meanwhile, today’s header photo is one already posted to Facebook. Somehow yesterday this photo downloaded normally, and today, my software won’t recognize the very same one. Oy vey, this confusing situation never before has happened.

Dear Friends: Maybe the settings in iPhone photos somehow are screwed up???? Diana
