Win10 Emoji Keyboard

Still half a year away from World Emoji Day (yes, it’s a thing), but I’m overdue an Emoji post, so…

In Windows 10, you can insert an emoji with the flick of key:
Press Windows Key (windowsLogoKey) + . (period) then select emoji or type to filter the displayed selection. For example;

windowsLogoKey + . , Q

for  🙋‍♀️question, 🦆quail, or 🌜quarter moon.

Cheers!

An Attorney’s Night Before Christmas

Image result for Night Before Christmas

in tribute to Clement Clarke Moore (and with all due apologies)

WHEREAS, on an occasion immediately preceding the Nativity Festival, throughout a certain dwelling unit, quiet descended, in which would be heard no disturbance, not even the sound emitted by a diminutive rodent related to, and in form resembling, a rat; and

WHEREAS, the offspring of the occupants had affixed their tubular, closely knit coverings for the nether limbs to the flue of the fireplace in the expectation that a personage known as St. Nicholas would arrive; and

WHEREAS, said offspring had become somnolent and were entertaining nocturnal hallucinations re: saccharine-flavored fruit; and

WHEREAS, the adult male of the family, et ux, attired in proper headgear, had also become quiescent in anticipation of nocturnal inertia; and

WHEREAS, a distraction on the snowy acreage outside aroused the owner to investigate; and

WHEREAS, he perceived in a most unbelieving manner a vehicle propelled by eight domesticated quadrupeds of a species found in arctic regions; and

WHEREAS, a most odd rotund gentleman was entreating the aforesaid animals by their appellations, as follows:

Your immediate cooperation is requested, Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, and Vixen, and collective action by you will be appreciated, Comet, Cupid, Donder, and Blitzen”;

and

WHEREAS, subsequent to the above, there occurred a swift descent to the hearth by the aforementioned gentleman, where he proceeded to deposit gratuities in the aforementioned tubular coverings,

NOW, THEREFORE, be ye advised: That upon completion of these acts, and upon his return to his original point of departure, he proclaimed a felicitation of the type prevalent and suitable to these occasions, i.e.,

Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good night!”

 

 

Disney’s new streaming service, “Disney+”

Let us hope + works out better for Disney than it did for Google

Disney+ will launch in “late” 2019 — which makes sense, as that’s right around the time Disney’s remaining contractual ties with Netflix come to an end.

Disney also dropped news about two new series:

  • An as-of-yet unnamed live-action Star Wars series about Rogue One’s Cassian Andor, with Diego Luna returning for the role. It is set to take place prior to Rogue One. This, of course, is in addition to The Mandalorian, the series Jon Favreau is making for the service.
  • An unnamed live-action Marvel universe series focusing on Loki. Tom Hiddleston will return to the role.

Google+: “I’m not quite dead, yet”

To poorly paraphrase M. Twain, “reports of Google+’ demise are exaggerated.”

Although the consumer product is at death’s door, the enterprise version will continue on and is being improved. G Suite users of Google+ will soon be able to tag content, and admins will be able to better moderate, promote and review post metrics.

Cheers!

RIP: Google+

Citing poor traffic and low user acceptance (and without mentioning the words ‘data leak‘) Google has decided to pull the plug on Google+, its fledgling social media entity.

For info and a chance to reminisce read: Looking back at Google+ -TC

Cheers!
