    South Carolina and the American Revolutionary War Yesterday on the tours at Magnolia Plantation and Gardens, I was reminded of South Carolina's major participation in the American Revolutionary, especially in the last 2-3 years - over 200 (400 quoted below) battles and skirmishes occurred - a...

    Magnolia Plantation and Gardens & Other Ashley River Plantations Well despite the title of this thread including Charleston, the historic city and environs has been little discussed. So, to add some additional posts pertinent to this town, we decided to re-visit the Ashley River Road (also...

    While enjoying our porch and coffee, several other villa/lagoon visitors made an appearance: 1) Two deer across the pond enjoying the vegetation around the villas; and 2) Great white egret - my pic through the screen was poor, so a nice image from the web. Of course the birds typically stand...

    Kiawah Island - May 2021 - Two Years Since Our Last Trip Here! Well, this is our first 'vacation' since the start of COVID isolation in early 2020 - decided to do a 4-nighter on Kiawah Island, one of our favorite get-aways (been coming here since the early 1980s) - the usual 5-hour drive (maps...

    Anyone know of a good cleaner app to clear out the user cache?

    Hi Moon... - You really need to provide a lot more information: 1) What iPad model are you using; 2) What iPadOS is installed (be specific - steps recommended may vary between model/iOS); 3) How much storage is on your device and what is left (see pic below from my iPad Pro where you can obtain...

    Well, likely more so at sea level - spent 3 days in Victoria on a B.C. trip decades ago - recall some famous gardens there - in the Piedmont area we are 700+ ft above sea level - blooming is of course earlier on the coast but more likely in March - not sure what flowers might come out that early...

    Hi Scifan.. - you are likely right! Now, I've been to the Louvre in Paris probably at least three times and another museum w/ a similar reputation - there is a huge Egyptian Department as described in the quote below, much more in the link; of course, Napoleon probably stole much of these...

    Yep, mummies fascinate me too, ever since I saw the 1932 film The Mummy w/ Boris Karloff as a wee kid - now, even own the UHD streaming version of the first mummy film w/ Brendan Fraser from 1999. But I've been reading plenty of books over the decades on the topic, and have seen a number of...

    Return to Umstead Hotel & the North Carolina Museum of Art - April 2021 - Part 2! The first six images below are from the video describing the many different Egyptian gods, some adopted by the Romans and others. One of the most interesting parts of the exhibit for me were the panel portraits...

    How do I mail iPhone photos to someone?

    Hello again - can you provide a link to your cell phone provider and to the plan you are on? Someone may be on the same or similar plan and has solved the issue, just another thought. Also, did you do a 'hard reset' on your phone according to the link I provided previously? Good luck - Dave :)

    iPad as laptop Replacement

    Ed - assume that you have a 'record' of when you bought the iPad? If you purchased the device w/o AppleCare, then you have just the 1-year warranty - to verify whether still active, see the screen capture below from my iPad Pro (its warranty on AppleCare expired in Dec 2020, hence the 'expired'...

    iPad as laptop Replacement

    Hi Ed - well you should know when you bought the device? But the iPad 7th G was released in Sept 2019 (as shown below); so if you bought the device about then, the standard warranty would be 1 year (see HERE), i.e. already expired - however, if you added AppleCare (which I do with all of my...

    Well living in the Piedmont area of North Carolina, we do get thunderstorms with lightening so certainly a concern for me - my iMac (wife's computer - I use Apple laptops) is on an APC UPS (the one shown below), and my den electronics are on several smaller APC UPS backup power units which is...

    iPad as laptop Replacement

    Well, if you are 'disconnected' from the mains, i.e. not on the charger, then there is no problem w/ power issues - correct? As to leaving the iPad on in 'sleep mode' offers certain functions to operate, such as Wi-Fi - you'll have to review the 'sleep options' which can be activated or not...

    Hi again Ed - please provide some more details about how you use the Toshiba laptop now, e.g. word processing, spreadsheets, financial software, photo imaging (what specifically, i.e. just storage only and/or image editing), music, videos, etc. Do you need printing ability? I'm assuming that...

    What do these keys do?

    Hi again Ed - you already asked that question in your thread HERE just a few days ago - should have continue the same issue and not start a new thread. Hopefully, a mod can come along and add your 'new' post to the other thread so the conversation there is not lost. Dave :)

    iPad gets some emails and texts, but not all

    @ Wayne - in addition to considering Jupiter's excellent advice, have you been able to retrieve emails elsewhere, e.g. coffee shop, hotel, etc.? I'm assuming this is an issue on your home network - correct? If so, do other devices (e.g. your computer or other owner's iDevices) in your home...

    How to Adjust Trackpad Sensitivity

    Well, your KB and trackpad are behaving erratically and you've been unable to provide a brand/model which would likely help us address your issues; a posted pic would also help. But in the meantime, a few more questions: 1) Is the KB a new one or used; 2) Has the KB been damaged, e.g. dropped...

    Wireless mouse for ipad’

    Hi Jupiter. - of course, assuming that Ed posted in the correct forum? I think he needs to provide us specific information on the iPad model he is using and the iPadOS installed, along with a pic of the KB/tractpad being used - would really help address his many questions. Dave :)
