Recommendations

Rainy Weather Activities: I’m hoping some creative readers might have some suggestions for visiting, adult guests. All of my planned activities for a week’s visit involved outdoor activities. I can’t think of interesting places to go, in the rain, to introduce my cousins to the area. I’ve checked places within a few hours drive to see if they have better weather but no luck. I would great appreciate any suggestions you may have. Thanks in advance for your thoughtful ideas. Michelle/La Herradura

Publishing Lawyer: Is there anyone out there that knows of an English Publishing Lawyer, in the Axaquia region. Maybe retired or otherwise but must be experienced in UK publishing and copyright law. I have a publishing contract I would like looked over. Any information would be gratefully received.

Ventana Abierta Jazz Club: No Land Trio en Concierto, 27 Apr.
Juanma Domínguez (double bass), Aitor Bravo (drums) and Jorge Fernández (piano)
From the País Vasco, this band comes to Nerja for the first time. His music, inspired by the great piano trios of jazz history (Bill Evans, Keith Jarret, Fred Hersch, Brad Mehldau …), convert their repertoire into their own compositions, as well as some arrangements of original themes.
His style is strongly marked by the multiple musics that have developed during his musical career. Thus, the training, which starts from a purely jazz and communicative point of view, goes through different approaches to jazz such as free jazz or modern jazz, through classical music or flamenco.

Gmail Users Alert: Google Knows What You’ve Purchased by Scanning Your Emails. Twitter users have discovered that Gmail is scanning email receipts to link non-Google purchases to a user’s Google account. Google uses this data to list individual purchases inside a user’s Google account and also shows additional information for some purchases. It’s not clear how long Google has been collecting this purchase data or how to opt-out of this data collection. The data shows individual purchases and supporting information for some purchases which can include subscription details and estimated fulfillment times for physical goods. Google says that the sources for this purchase data include “order receipts or confirmations received in Gmail”. It’s unclear how long Google has been collecting this data but one Twitter user claims their account shows five years of purchase data.
You can currently view this “Purchases” data inside your own Google account by selecting the “Manage purchases” option under the “Payments and subscriptions” section of myaccount.google.com. You can also see the source for each purchase by selecting “Info” and then “Where’s this from?”
Overall, this “Purchases” data revelation is yet another stark reminder of just how much intimate information Google collects about us on auto-pilot.
So, if you’re not happy with this data collection and want to switch to an email provider that respects your privacy, try Protonmail.com. It doesn’t scan or mine your emails or personal data.

DoctorLaptop’s Tips #73
Windows 7: How to stop the new “End of Service” nag screens & How to extend your Windows 7 support for an extra 3 years.
-Starting April 18th Microsoft is rolling out updates that will pop-up a warning message that Support for Windows 7 is ending soon (14Jan2020). This is another annoying nag message like when they wanted everyone to do the free upgrade to Win 10 a few years ago. To prevent it do not download or install Windows Update KB4493132. If you are already getting the messages, wait till one appears and look at the lower left corner. There you can check the box to choose “don’t remind me again”. See pic, click to enlarge.

-Windows 7 ESU (Extended Security Updates) is coming, an extension of Win 7 support for up to 3 years. Those of you who follow my tips will remember I said Microsoft has changed their biz model from selling a product to selling a subscription service. This is where it starts. Microsoft will stop providing security updates or support for Windows 7 on January 14, 2020. Starting this month Microsoft will be selling the ESU add-on to extend the life of your Win 7, but only the Pro/Ultimate/Enterprise versions of Win 7, not Home or Home Premium versions. The starting price of ESU is $25 or $50 per device per year. The cost will be doubled in the second year, and then doubled again in the third year. So in the last year, you need to pay $100 or $200 per device for the support. ESU is not intended for the casual home user at these prices, it’s more for power users and businesses who are running expensive Win 7 only software. If you need to upgrade your Win 7 Home or Home Premium to Win Pro so you can get ESU, they will sell you that too. With the ESU for Windows 7, the covered PCs will be able to run and continue to receive updates for Office 365 ProPlus and the applications installed locally and bundled with Office 365: Outlook, Excel, Word, and so on. Now you see why selling services beats selling products.
A note to cheaters: the ESU is sold per device so sharing from one comp to another is not supposed to be possible, but someone may figure out a way eventually.
For an in depth explanation of these topics see: https://www.minitool.com/news/windows-7-patch-kb4493132.html….DoctorLaptop Computer Services, Torrox Costa. Computer repairs, lessons, & websites. Contact Naythan by email at: doctorlaptop@protonmail.com or Tel. 675 993 069 (no calls before 11am, missed calls returned asap). All work by appointment. My contact info can also be found in the Sponsor’s Section of every issue.

AIR STRIKES SPAIN: Full details of TODAY’S and TOMORROW’S flight cancellations in source article.
A total of 148 flights, affecting around 10,000 passengers, have been cancelled during the first three days of six planned days of strike action by pilots in Spain.
The strike by SEPLA (Spanish Union of Airline Pilots) members has forced Air Nostrum, a franchisee of Iberia, to cancel flights on April 15, 16 and 17 (see full list in source article).
The union has also called another three days of action on April 22, 23 and 24 and the airline is expected to announce the flights affected on those dates soon if negotiations with the unions fail.

Torrox Spanish History Group: The Torrox Spanish History Group enjoyed a day out on 10th April visiting the Monastery of St. Isidoro. The Monasterio de San Isidoro del Campo was founded by Alfonso Pérez de Guzmán and María Coronel Alonso in 1301. We spent several hours there and then went onto Italica where we had some lunch at one of the local restaurants before spending several hours walking around the city, afterwards we made our way to the Plaza Espana in Sevilla for a short visit. Italica was the birthplace of three Roman emperors – Trajan, Hadrian, and Theodosius and was one of the earliest Roman settlements in Spain, it was founded in 206 BC by Publius Cornelius Scipius to house soldiers who had been wounded in battle. The 25,000 seater amphitheatre, which was one of the largest in the Roman Empire, has partly survived. The central pit was used for animal cages, bears and wild boar, during gladiatorial combats.
Also five large houses of prosperous families have been excavated, some with well-preserved, colourful mosaics, including floors with exquisite design of birds, Neptune, and the planets.
-On May 14th The Torrox Spanish History Group are are fortunate enough to have the well known author Joan Fallon giving a talk on “The Golden Age of Moorish Spain. We normally meet every first Tuesday of the week but for May we will be meeting on the second Tuesday instead.
Joan will be bringing her books along for your to purchase as well as her latest one called the The Apothecary set in 11th century Malaga.
Our group meets at El Parquesol on the first Tuesday of the week at 11am (apart from May_

Follow-up to the plea for a cat trap: I want to extend my deepest thanks to Naythan for posting the plea for the cat trap so promptly.
A very professional trap was loaned to me by TAILS TORROX, and once set up, the Mother cat to the rescued kittens was promptly trapped. She is now being held in containment with the objective of taming her to the point where she will be trusting enough to handle so that she might be brought to the get clinic in La Caleta to be sterilized.
Unfortunately her kittens, who are now being hand raised and fed a cat milk formula which had been donated by a compassionate cat lover, will not be able to be reunited with their mother, as it looks to risky to their lives to do so. They are doing well though, and will continue to be reared by hand until weaned, at which time they will be put up for adoption.
A sincere Thank You to the Digamites who also came forward with the offer of a trap, and to those others concerned enough to reply to the post with good contact numbers of rescue groups in Torrox, Torre Del Mar and Competa. You know who you are.
Finally I want to thank my friend Helen of Sayalonga, who took time out of her day to drive me to Torrox to pick up the cage.
Compassion does exist.

Big thanks to Anja & Carlos from the YoSoy Cafe, Torrox Costa for responding to my request for a mini-fridge for the DigameXtra workshop, delivering a great, almost new under counter fridge with freezer compartment to my door this afternoon. It’s greatly appreciated! Naythan

Pets

Home for dog: I found this little dog last Saturday in Alcaucin, the little dog looked like it had been dumped, had string around it’s little neck, I have looked after her but I can’t keep her long term as I have a dog already, the rescue centres I have contacted can’t take her as they are full? I would like to get a good home for her, she is a lovely little dog. Kind regards, Maureen/Alcaucin

Help for a rescue: I wondered if there is anyone in Digame land who would be so kind as to lend me a live trap in order that I might capture a feral cat who is the mother to 3 newborn kittens (there were 4, one died before their rescue could take place). Although the kittens are safe at present, I still feel the best carer for them is their natural mother. It would be lovely to have her reunited with her babies. If you can help by temporarily providing a live trap, it would be very much appreciated.
