Early voting in Texas

 I was going to do early voting in Texas today.  I am not sure I am going to do it today.  I was thinking that my normal voting place would be the place I would do early voting.  No it is not.  The place I would have to go is 6 miles from here and would take me 12 minutes if there is no traffic.  I do not have a car so I was going to take Uber there and back.
  I think I will just wait for election day and vote at the place that I been voting for years.  I took the bus in the past and I even walked home from voting one time.  My heath has changed and I do not think I would be walking home again from voting.
  I been up all night .. I had to fill my pill box.  I do that on the 1st of the month.  It takes some time to do.

  Oh … I do not get a commission from YouTube if you watch the above video and 3,434 have watched it so far.  The reason I do not get paid is because I put the word “drug” in the tags.
  There are, at least, five other videos that Amazon rejects for the same reason.  One of them has 22,751 views – “What is a pill cutter?”  

  I am thinking about Not Monetizing any of my videos.  That means that you would not see adv on any of my 600 videos.  It means I would not get any commission when people watch my videos.  I get about $30.00 a month now.  But I am just tried of having to deal with the crap from YouTube.
  

4K video and more coming soon

 You should soon be seeing much better YouTube videos from me.  I just ordered a Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ300 camera.  I had in the past the FZ200 and it was an excellent camera.  I did not have it long.  I got it and loved it but I sold it on eBay so I could buy a smaller camera.  I got, and still have, a Panasonic DMC-LX7.  
But I missed the FZ200.  
The FZ300 has some major improvements.  It does 4K video.  It does  WiFi and that will help me.  I can use it instead of the USB webcam for my YouTube desk videos and I can zoom and control the camera using my cell phone or tablet.

  I think my YouTube videos are going to get much better.  We will see.
  If you want to  read about the FZ300, the FZ330 in the UK, the best review I think is the DPReview.  
  

ShowMeCam Video Blog for 10/28/2016

I got my first computer in 1978. I set up a computer bulletin board system (BBS) in 1982. You had to dial in at 300 baud. A national magazine picked my BBS as one of the ten best sites. I was blogging before the word blog had been invented. People think the first blog was invented in 1995. They are wrong I was doing it in 1982.
When the rest of the world got around to inventing the world wide web I moved my BBS to the web. Yes, I been online for over 32 years.
You have found one of the very first online sites!
I was doing this before Google (1998), before YouTube (2005), Yahoo (1994) and all the rest of them.
You have found one of the fathers of all this that we all enjoy so much.
Welcome and enjoy and hang out with Jim Howard. He has been waiting for you.
One of the first online sites, one of the first blogs and one of the first webcam sites.

Sid Meier’s Civilization VI

 I have been playing Civ V for years.  Right now I am downloading, from Steam, Civilization VI.  I wonder if I am going to like it. Civ V I just do the single player version.  I never play others.  I also just play it very simple.  I am not sure I have ever completed a game.  I like to keep it simple and easy.  I just enjoy build up my nation.
  So this is going to be very different for me.

I am getting the $59.99 version and I am getting it from Amazon.
So I just paid for it and Steam is downloading it.

 

 

Amazon banning incentivized reviews

Published on Oct 4, 2016

Reports on many web sites say that Amazon is banning incentivized  reviews tied to free or discounted products.

I say this is not correct in this review.

Tech Crunch: https://goo.gl/79VUPC
Amazon Police: https://goo.gl/L103mo

Sorry the audio was not very good on this video. I had picked the wrong microphone.

I just uploaded a review to Amazon and it was approved.
So I think I am correct in my comments in this YouTube post.

Update: Lon Seidman on his YouTube site talks about this issue today:

Here is the Amazon statement on this issue dated today:

The spinning cat

Rusty is a sweet cat and she loves attention and love.  But she is a pain the butt.  She is under my feet all the time.  She wants to jump up and get on my desk.  In the mornings most of all.
Now she likes to get on the back of my chair.  The first time she did it I decided to go around and around to get her off my chair.  She dug her claws into the chair and even bit the chair to stay on.  But she loves to go around and around.
When Hilary goes back to Sweden I am going to have to feed her and clean the cat litter.  With my  arthritis that hurts.  Rusty is not just a pain in the ass She is a pain in the neck, shoulders and back now.

 

Fort Worth Allergy Report

  The last few years I was in Kansas City I  got a bad ragweed allergy.  Then I was in FL for years.  I do not remember having major problems in FL.  I been in Texas for years now.  I think from time to time I have some minor hay fever problems.  My guess is that it is ragweed.
Of course now that I am 75 years of age I do not have to get out and work with the pollen in the air.  That is hard when you work outside and have allergy problems. 

The last few days I been having some problems I think. 

I see, from Pollen.Com, that yesterday the count was high, today it is medium-high and tomorrow will be medium.  The top allergens in Fort Worth right now are ragweed, elm and Chenopods.
