The article in question is by the same woman, whose name I refuse to mention (and thus give her more publicity), who wrote the inflammatory article suggesting that Sri Lanka should leave the British Commonwealth.

She sends me all her hardline, demented articles, near daily by e-mail. She, as I have said, is Sri Lanka’s equivalent of Ann Coulter, though I get the feeling that she is not 1/1,000 times as feminine. The Sri Lankan comes across as needing some ‘TLC’ — if you get what I mean. Hopefully the Sri Lankan government will now try and get her under some control. This was altogether unnecessary.

Yola and Weebly are both having problems — recently.

I have been actively working with SUPPORT at both Yola and Weebly.

Try ‘whitelisting’ JPEG and PNG files in Avast.

It might be as simple as that.

I got Weebly to work earlier this week WITHOUT having to do this exclusion. But it only started working after I had tried Weebly image loading with Avast disabled. Very frustrating.

But this might do the trick. Hope this help. No charge.

Avast!

teischanyolaaug761aYola, as you might be able to work out, wasn’t too happy that I wasn’t happy with them — especially after they saw my damning post. Since Friday they have been e-mailing and even calling me up to try and get things resolved. We finally managed to set aside some minutes earlier today.

My current problem with uploading images appears to be tied to me using Chrome! That is a shame. I love Chrome and there is no way that I will stop using Chrome.

But, at their request, and he was very nice, I tried FireFox. It worked with FireFox. So FINALLY I managed to load a pictures of Teischan, with her ‘Snow White’ performance bouquet of flowers, to her Website (see above).

So at least we have a work around. The guy, and they are all South African (given that that is where there call center is), was good enough to admit that I was the 2nd Chrome customer, TODAY, that had had problems. So heads up. If you are having problems with Yola try FireFox. FireFox is their recommended browser.


Le Pan 10.2″ 16GB Android 4.2.2 (Jelly Bean) Tablet — So Far, So Good.

I have now had a Le Pan 10.2″ Android Tablet for just under 48 hours — it was delivered late Monday afternoon. So far, so good. My 2nd Android Tablet, the 7th Android Tablet we have had — and the first which is not a 7″. I got it from Walmart — as part of their ‘warranty’ program.

This one was a replacement for an Asus MemoPad 7 Tablet which died after 7 months. It is night-and-day compared with the Asus. The Le Pan, which I got after some intensive (but as ever rushed) research, is ALL that all the reviews say: it is fast, it has a beautiful display and the battery life is appalling. The latter is NOT really a problem for me. I am NOT a big user of pads. Most days, MAX I will use one for 30 minutes — 20 minutes of that between 8:20 and 9:00 am in the morning, lying in bed, drinking my coffee and ‘watching’ CNN/CNBC. Even the 10.2″ screen is too little for me. I like to have close to 40″ at my disposal.

We got our first Google Nexus 7 in July 2012 — the very first day they were available in the U.S. I had pre-ordered one, for Teischan, through Google and it was delivered on the GA [General Availability] date. Teischan went through three (3) Nexus 7s! I guess 7 year olds and Pads are not the best combination in the world. Christmas 2013, after she had been without a pad for a few weeks (though she had a brand new Windows 8 laptop), I got her a cheap, $79, Visual Land 16GB 7″ Pad from Walmart. It appears to do all she wants — which is mainly YouTube and some Websites, e.g. Disney. But of late I have noticed she is using her laptop more than her pad. Devanee has had a Nexus 7, 16GB since October 2012, and much to all of our amazement, managed to keep it intact all this time.

The Asus I got, which is the same really as the Nexus 7, was never stellar. I never really cared for it. It was temperamental.

Like the Le Pan much more — but the Le Pan is also twice as much!

So this is what my latest “Google Play” device dashboard looks like. Yes, all the Android Pads are on MY gmail account. Just seemed easier with the kids, though they also have their own accounts. I only display the working pads — for obvious reasons. Transferring APPS from a ‘dead’ pad to a new one is a piece of cake. Just select the APP and hit install. The name of the new Pad will appear and just say OK.

I hope the Le Pan works out. I am so fed up with getting new Pads. I will, of course, keep you posted.

Shipping, as I had suspected, was steep — 80% of the item’s cost! Yes, it is ceramic and probably quite tall. But …? This is an issue, alas, with British poppy merchandise — so much so that I have thought about becoming a shipping agent for the U.S., not to make any money, BUT to reduce the crazy costs. C’est la vie.

I was going to get one, irrespective of the shipping cost. It is my birthday present. Deanna ordered it today. See above.
