PROBLEM: Why does my Verzion service intermittently lose wifi?

2017-Sep-30 1118

Had to power cycle my Verizon hardware when my MAC lost inet connectivity overnight. Sometime between midnight and 10AM. Didn’t have to cycle the MAC just the Verizon stuff. Cable TV worked fine. 

Argh!

Only good thing is I found that it has an on/off switch do I can stop pulling the plug out.

Laugh!

Argh!

GOOGLE: Changed their “SITES” offering

2017-Jun-13

Imagine my surprise when I found that there is a “new” SITES offering and “old” SITES offering.

And, of course, no automated way to migrate up to the “new” one.

Argh!

EXCEL: Updating my steps target sheet

Long story short I feel off my exercise regimen. 

Sooooo, I wanted to recalibrate my spreadsheet to new lower plateau and then increment every sunday by 500 steps.

Being lazy, last time I did it by hand.

Being not so lazy and on hold for a support chat, I refigured the Excel formulas to do it.

=WEEKDAY(A2) gives you 1 for Sunday.

=IF(WEEKDAY(A3)=1,B2+500,B2) did what I wanted it to do.

So the final result to insert and copy down was:

Taaaa Dahhhh

=IF(WEEKDAY(A120)=1,B119+500,B119)

It was easier than being lazy.

SERVICES Poloplug is no longer operational

Always had trouble with it. Now I have to decide if the cheap little boxes are worth anything.

They have another cloud offering but I’d never do business with them again. And urge others not to either.

EXCEL: My custom date format

[$-409]ddd dd-mm mmm-yyyy;@

Don’t know what “[$-409]” is?

Don’t know why I need the space in the “mm mmm” string?

Don’t know what the “;@“ is?

Don’t how to “fix” that ugly space in “01JAN”?

SO I demonstrated I don’t know a lot!
