Once in a while, in a very short time span, good ideas occur.
Someone came up with the idea of using a printer cartridge (handheld) to create a handheld printer.... Maybe the result isn't that great but one have to give this guy 9 out of 10, just for coming up with the idea.
I finally was able to download the 16GB STD2_1720_EU_A1_202145.zip from Skoda so that I could update my Maps with the latest update (Ya!). I then promptly clicked on it to extract it, and got an error: Unable to expand "STD2_1720_EU_A1_202145.zip" into "" (Error 70 - Inabpropiate file type or format) What the ... I then opened a command line, as maybe unzip would be able to do something with it, and it worked. # cd Downloads # unzip STD2_1720_EU_A1_202145.zip ..... # Ya! Another option is to install " The Unarchiver " from the AppStore, which will expand the file without any problems.
Some time ago, I read an article about why an "IKEA" would never happen in Denmark. Not that Swedes are anything special, or that Danes are't smart enough. But the argument is that to be able to create an IKEA, one would have to decide that things are only made to be "almost good enough", meaning that one know that the product is not perfect, it will not last longer than it was designed to last, and so fort. And any one in Denmark who would start a company would would do so to produce products which where the best of the best (I am not fully in agrement with that one).

But we have gotten used to software which, we actually pay for, doesn't work, or it crashes, or causes data loss. The vendors, in many cases does not care, or tell us that it's caused by us using the software
I'm doing something which I can't really afford, but doing it anyway ... I'm upgrading my Stereo ... I like music, and believe it should be played at the highest affordable quality. So after getting a new Stereo Amp (Creek Evolution 50A), I got a new Phono Amp. and then started looking for a DAC ... and after reading I do not know how many posts I decided to get an S.M.S.L M8 (from Amazon fro €249.99), not too expensive and according to what I can read very good. So I got it hooked it up to my amp, connected my Notebook (Macbook Air 11" / 2011) using USB ... sounded nice, then my Macbook Pro Retina with digital (fiber) in some way better than USB, slightly more air and openness. Then decided to use my old Apple Airport Express ( MB321LL/A - 802.11n version 1) using it's digital output (I don't like the build in DAC - it's a bit too dark for me), and this is where I started having doubts about my buy. There was drop out, all the time. Right I changed, to
