Re: Bad Apple

Naturally some people will assume I’m biased on this point, but myself and others have really questioned the people CBC relied on for their report.

If not I will look into a plan with one of the phone companies and try to reduce the cost of the iPhone as much as possible. However, I'm sure they're not giving them away...

Re: Database Program on Mojave

Can anyone recommend a simple, reasonably-priced database program? There are databases included in the OpenOffice and LibreOffice suites; I believe both of them are free (but large downloads). Ninox ( https://ninoxdb.de/en/ is $35. We've been using it for our club membership records, seems fine for...

Skype version 8.32.0.44 seems to have lost the "Contact window " which used to be a small window that could be placed independently of anything else, in the corner of my desktop. I could then always view the users on line, or all my contacts, and the status of these users. They also could...
