First off, I don't 'do' April Fools so there'll be none of
that nonsense here.  I didn't have time to publish last
month and while we're still fairly busy, I have most of
today free so I'm going to try and get an issue out.

Off we go...

My time-killer on the computer, when I'm waiting for things,
taking my mind off of a problem or just wanting to unwind
for a few minutes is one or another game, usually the card
game, Hearts. I recently spent a couple of days working on a
computer that didn't have any games on it. I spent a lot of
time waiting for scans and updates so I found some online
alternatives for my favorite card game.
Incidentally, the last one above, on rollapp, is a perfect
online 'clone' of the Gnome Hearts game I usually play on
my Linux computer. I guess that's as it should be, given
that RollApp offers and entire virtual desktop loaded with

for online Hearts games were this one, where you can find
the rules to pretty much any card game you've ever heard

Musicians who play guitar, ukulele, mandolin or even some
other, less well known, stringed instrument often have a
need for chord charts and that usually involves a google
image search, copy/pasting and scaling (or editing) but now
it's a lot easier because of this free software which is
available for whatever computer you happen to be using.

Short and sweet and it only took me a couple of hours. Nice
to have had a couple of hours (for a change). Now I have to
go finish building a cover for the seat of my lawn tractor
(I'm tired of having to clean off the bird lime before I
can mow the lawn) and then we have grocery shopping to get
done.  Hi Ho!  See you next time.
