@scott They are?

Well, I got an email from them telling me about some opportunity with my Adobe Illustrator Portal, and I've never used Illustrator.

So, everything is normal.

    A Pigeon Took These Photographs

    'A photographer with a fascination for pigeons has attached small cameras to the birds so they can take photos'

    Strictly for the birds. And the photo of the highway intersection looks like a soaring bird.

    I decided to treat myself by buying a new satnav for the car. My car doesn't have a satnav built-in, which with hindsight is a good thing.

    The new model is a Garmin DriveSmart 76. My main reason for upgrading was to get lifetime map updates, which are installed via WiFi, directly onto the satnav (no PC needed). For me this is a major benefit, as otherwise map updates require a Garmin app running on Mac or Windows. The new unit will replace a Garmin Nuvi 65 LM.

    @fitheach You've got me thinking about an upgrade. I have to plug my Nuvi in to upgrade software and maps, and it's hit or miss whether the Garmin Express software actually recognises that it's plugged in.

    @garry@mstdn.social avatar

    @fitheach Sounds good. But update via WiFi is excellent.
