Where are the ‘experts’????

Thought for the day…”Don’t live the same year 90 times and call it a life”

“When life gives you a rainy day, play in the puddles”.

Computers have been around for a long time now, since the last century indeed.  Some of us grew up with them, starting with the famous Sinclair ZX Spectrum and the says of loading programs with tapes.   But despite computers having been around for decades, they still do not work as they should.  Why is it that there are still so many problems with things that by now should be simple, like logging into wifi??    Why do computers seem to have endless problems and need endless updates?   And where are the ‘experts’??   Surely by now they could have sorted out all the teething problems and have produced computers that do work without needing constant attention.     I would love to sit next to Bill Gates on a long flight and pass him my laptop and ask him to make it work properly.    It seems that the so-called ‘experts’ are not so expert.  How often have you heard the advice to restart the computer (ie. pull the plug out)??    And why have these ‘experts’ not managed to sort out the problems after all these years.  I just want a computer that works as it should and does not need constant attention.   Is that too much to ask???

Off to Norway for the photo today…and to the harbour port of Kristiansund, seen here on a beautiful summer’s day.

Early one morning…..sunrise in Pembroke, New Zealand

Thought for the day…” Strong is what happens when you run out of weak”.

“If you want something that you never had, then you have to do something that you have never done”.

Currently in New Zealand waters, and at present in Auckland, is a 134m superyacht, ‘Serene’.    One of the world’s largest private yachts, owned by a Russian vodka company boss, the boat is said to have cost some USD 330 million.   Crewed by 52 staff, it boasts 7 decks, 2 helipads, an indoor salt water swimming pool, movie theatre, nightclub, climbing wall, gym, underwater viewing room, and several jacuzzis.   When the Russian owner is not using Serene, it is available for charter.  Not cheap though, as rumor has it that when Bill Gates rented it, the cost was some USD 5 million a week.    No doubt that the price includes a good selection of vodkas in the bars though.

Today’s photo is a lucky shot.   Suddenly one morning for about 5 minutes the clouds parted during the sunrise, and just for a very short time, I was able to get some great photos of a dramatic sunrise.    Another occasion when it was good to have the camera there and ready……..Lots of photos of sunSETS on the internet, but not so many of sunRISES.      Taken in Pembroke, New Zealand, with the Fuji X-E1 camera.
