Summer art exhibition Frigiliana 16 -31 August: Inspirational summer exhibition in Calle Real 98 in Frigiliana “Summerjoy/ Alegria de verano”.  This August Spanish artist Alberto Tarsicio and Dutch artist Lieuwke Loth exhibit their art in the exhibition space ‘Sala Real 98’.
Alberto Tarsicio will show oil painting impressions of the summertime sun illuminating the Spanish sea. He works with fluoride colors and is able to paint the waves and water in such a vibrant a way so that it feels like seawater splashes out of the canvas. He will also show a series of paintings of radiant flowers. Tarsicio was born and raised in the coastal area of Torre del Mar. Nowadays he is a professional artist showing his works locally and abroad. He set up a cultural centre ‘3Puertas’ in Torre del Mar. It began as a cultural place where people could gather, and it is now a solid base for exhibitions, live music and exchanges with artists from abroad. Tarsicio will be present in the exhibition in Frigiliana as well on some of the opening days.
Lieuwke Loth is a Dutch artist based in Competa’s natural park. She runs a gallery in the center of the mountain village; “Galeria Luz de la Vida.”
She loves to create art, organise art events, and connect with other creative souls. She has organised the “Art Walk” for six years, and in autumn she will have her fifth International Symposium “LUZ” in Competa. She makes bronze sculptures and also lasercut metal pieces. She also draws and paints fantastic and colorful pieces. She loves traveling for inspiration and the works she makes are influenced by the cultures and countries she has explored. In this exhibition she will show primarily lasercut wall pieces. Some she designed in Uzbekistan and Thailand, others in Spain. They are made out of stainless steel or cortensteel. The pieces can be hung outside and inside. With some light on the works, they get an extra dimension. And it can give a complete different feel to your living room, roof terrace, patio, or garden!
You might like to combine your visit to Frigiliana with the famous ‘3 Culturas Festival’ taking place the 22nd till 25th of August! A big music and cultural festival during the day & night. These days the gallery, owned by the town hall, is open as well. Get inspired by high quality art and a good atmosphere at Sala Real 98!
The inauguration is on Friday the 16th from 6pm till 9pm.

Memoirs Writing interest? We are feeling the interest in the community for an initial gathering of individuals, either beginners or seasoned writers interested in a personal journey into exploring their past and creating short narratives of recollections. After the initial session, the two hours will be spent with a couple of activities for the first hour followed by an hour of uninterrupted writing. You will never be required to read out loud to the group what you have written. The Danish scholar Kierkegaard wrote, ”We live life forward but understand it backward.” These writing sessions will give you the opportunity to reflect on what has been and relate it to the full sweep of the past and present. This program is free and sponsored by U3A (www.u3aaxarqui.com). However, we will meet in a cafe so we are expected to consume at least one drink. I facilitated these kinds of writing sessions in Hawaii for 8 years until 2011 for the University of Hawaii in Honolulu. If this interest you or if you want more info, please respond to me at norma2kk at aol dot com as we plan our first organizational meeting for Friday, Sept. 6th from 11am to 1pm in Algarrobo costa. More details will be sent after you reply to me with your reason(s) why you had liked to register. I look forward to hearing from you!! norma in Velez Malaga.

Recommendations

Campsites in Andalucía call for an end to ban on guests staying more than six months: Campsites in Andalucía have asked the Junta regional government to lift a ban on stays longer than six months. The Andalusian campsite federation says that the ban goes against the Junta’s stated aim of reducing the seasonality of regional tourism by forcing people to move. They add that it discourages longer-stay winter camping by retired couples from northern Europe and doesn’t make sense as hotels don’t have the same restrictions placed on them. In the first six months of this year, 83,000 people checked into regional campsites.

DoctorLaptop Alert! The Push To Make Windows 7 Computers Obsolete I Warned About Is Here: Over 40 Drivers Could Let Hackers Install Persistent Backdoor On Windows PCs. Windows 8.1 and 10 patches are already out, Windows 7 patches may not be issued! If you own a device, or a hardware component, manufactured by ASUS, Toshiba, Intel, NVIDIA, Huawei, or other 15 other vendors listed below, you’re probably affected. So far only Windows 8.1 and 10 have issued fixes via Windows Updates or the Intel website. To be as safe as is currently possible, all Windows users need to be sure their drivers are all updated to current, all drivers, not just those provided by Microsoft.
A team of security researchers has discovered high-risk security vulnerabilities in more than 40 drivers from at least 20 different vendors that could allow attackers to gain most privileged permission on the system and hide malware in a way that remains undetected by security programs over time, sometimes for years.
“Some vulnerable drivers interact with graphics cards, network adapters, hard drives, and other devices,” researchers explain. “Persistent malware inside these devices could read, write, or redirect data stored, displayed, or sent over the network. Likewise, any of the components could be disabled as part of a DoS or ransomware attack.”
Researchers have reported these vulnerabilities to the affected vendors, of which some, including Intel and Huawei, have already released patch updates and issued a security advisory for Windows 10 and 8.1. Is remains to be seen if older systems will be offered patches, or if this is going to be the excuse for forced obsolesence of Windows 7 and earlier systems.
All the vulnerable drivers, as listed below, uncovered by the researchers, have been certified by Microsoft who missed the flaw.

Mums cafe and Tea Room, Torrox Costa: Hello, we would like to introduce ourselves and let you know what we are doing. We are Gary and Andrew, and we moved over from Nottingham in the UK last November. We got married just over 4 years ago and had been talking for a while about changing our lives and moving to Spain, we had been visiting around here often over the last few years. We decided on the Torrox area as we loved it and the surrounding towns. We thought about setting up a B&B or cafe as we were unhappy in our own jobs, Andrew a manager for a Telesales team and Gary Spending the last 20 years in health and social care. After making this decision Andrew found out a few months later his work site were all being made redundant by August of last year. That was the sign we needed and we made our plans.
Andrew’s mum had passed away 2 years before and he inherited a cabinet full of old China tea pots, cups, saucers and plates. His mum had never used them apart from on display so we thought we would put them to good use. Growing up Gary’s mum always spent Sunday baking and he along with his siblings always helped mum bake. This has never left me (Gary) and baking and cooking has always been a joy reminding me of growing up. We made the decision that we would set up a cafe and Tea Room, we opened our doors 4 weeks ago where we cook lunches, brunches, cream teas and afternoon teas and serve loose leaf tea brought from the UK and served in China cups from old China tea pots. We make home made traditional cakes such as lemon drizzle cake, carrot cake and scones. We make our own strawberry jam and clotted cream and serve food we remember as children such as fish finger sandwiches and cheese toasties. We also cook lunches and brunches such as smoked salmon and scrambled eggs, Devilled mushrooms and baked Camembert with crusty bread. For us this has been a joy and does in no way feel like work, we come away everyday feeling happy and having met some great people. We have had some really good feedback that has let us change a few things we were doing and that has also lets us know we have done the right thing. We have a page on Facebook, “mums cafe and tea room” where you can see updates and contact us. We really do hope you will pay us a visit and enjoy what we have to offer as we look forward to seeing you. Avenida El Faro,  Block 75, 29793, Torrox Costa. Thanks, Gary and Andrew. FB-Link

BLACK FRIDAY UK power cut plunges Britain into darkness as National Grid outage sparks travel chaos with trains, tubes and traffic lights paralysed. Read article at: https://www.thesun.co.uk/news/9691385/power-cut-uk-trains-tubes-power-lights-outage/

 

A very concerning development regarding those silly “sextortion” spam emails and why everyone needs to use a good VPN at all times. 
Almost everyone has received a spam email that claims to have recorded you via webcam doing naughty things. They threaten to send these videos to everyone on your email contact list unless you pay a ransom in bitcoin. Up till now most of these were empty threats. Real webcam hijacking, while possible, usually requires the attacker to have physical access to the target computer to install malware. There is a famous case of students being monitored at home via webcams in laptops that the school provided. That only worked because the school preinstalled snooping software in those laptops previous to distributing them to students. It’s similar to those “remote assistance” programs like TeamViewer. Which is why I always tell clients, only install TeamViewer or similar programs when needed, and uninstall them when done, do not leave them on your computer or you are inviting hackers in! Besides, everyone including Mark Zuckerberg himself covers their webcam with tape when not in use, don’t you?.
Here is the new twist, Varenyky malware. Antivirus maker ESET has discovered a new Windows malware strain that uses infected computers to send out spam campaigns. However, one of this malware’s most peculiar features is a hidden function that records the victim’s desktop when the user visits an adult website. Hackers can now record your Desktop and the Varenyky team will certainly be able to tie each of the recordings to users’ real life identities. Unless your webcam is on and displaying on the Desktop, the hackers won’t get videos of the victim. But there will be proof positive of who you are, what you viewed, and when&where you did so (ex. they will be able to prove to your boss you were looking at porn while at work, not that DigameXtra readers would ever be in such a situation, it demonstrates my point). This is because the Varenyky malware also includes another hidden feature that extracts usernames and passwords from the victim’s browser and email client, which it also sends to its Tor-based command and control server. If it would ever need to execute a threat to send out evidence emails to extort a user, it would know exactly where it needs to send that recording, and they could even send it from your email, confirming it’s validity!
Varenyky malware emerged in May this year, and has only been active in France, ESET said.
I am sure we will hear more about Varenyky malware in coming months as the hackers add new functions and languages for the text. Eventually it will not just be porn sites it monitors, but any sites that may prove embarassing, personal health issues, political affiliations, etc., anything that the AI determines may be exploitable. This is the beginning of Artificial Intellegence (AI) driven hacking and the total loss of any possible online anonymity. AI can identify you in many ways besides your IP address, it can take typing habits and your computer metadata to create a profile  as good as a fingerprint in identifying you! Everyone who is not a trained securtiy expert should assume everything is recorded and tracable, there is no privacy, treat the internet as a public forum. A good VPN will hide your location and identity from being linked to websites visited, a very important security function everyone should use, but it won’t protect you from opening infected emails, getting infected, and then sending out spam for the hackers. -Naythan.

A Chorus Line at the Soho Caixabank Theatre in Malaga: The musical, to be launched by actor Antonio Banderas as the opening show in his new theatre project, opens on 18 October in Malaga but is already being promoted around the country.
Antonio Banderas co-directs the show, to be performed in Spanish but maintaining some of the original song lyrics in English, with American actress and choreographer Bayork Lee (who performed in the original show in New York in 1975). The actor has said that anyone who wants to see him on stage will have to go to the Malaga theatre as he will move on to new acting commitments next year.
While the show will not officially be launched until 19 September, Banderas has said that tickets will be on sale at prices ranging between 18 and 70 euros.

Meteorite Shower- The Tears of St Lawrence: In Spanish the phenomenon is known as Lágrimas de San Lorenzo – the tears of St Lawrence – because the best viewing nights often occur around the feast day on August 10th of the Spanish saint martyred in 258 AD. The meteorite shower is visible across the northern hemisphere but will be especially good in southern Europe. The shower has been active since the 17th of July and will continue until August 24th. Activity will peak this weekend and early next week, when the best stargazing expected on the nights of August 11th. 12th and 13th before the moon becomes full on the 15th and the sky to light to view the expected 100 meteorites falling per hour.
Stay up late or for the best results rise early as some of the best showings occur just before dawn.
The shooting stars are visible to the naked eye so no need for binoculars or a telescope but allow yourself to become accustomed to the darkness which usually takes around 20 minutes. And have patience as the shower comes in spurts – nothing for a while and then a sudden flurry of activity.

More Bad News For WhatsApp Users:
-A series of vulnerabilities in WhatsApp which could permit hackers to tamper with conversations have been made public. On Wednesday, Check Point security researchers revealed three methods of attack. According to the team, the bugs “could allow threat actors to intercept and manipulate messages sent in both private and group conversations, giving attackers immense power to create and spread misinformation from what appear to be trusted sources.”
Facebook (who owns WhatsApp) said the WhatsApp bugs were due to “limitations that can’t be solved due to their structure and architecture,” according to the Financial Times. Well that’s not very reassuring now is it? Source Link

-Free online services allow you to track a WhatsApp user’s location easily via their mobile device. There are up-sides and down-sides. Is it keeping track of your kids or is it spying on your partner? You’ll have to decide for yourself. All you have to do is get them to click on a link you send them. Watch this disturbing video for details. I post this for educational purposes only, never track anyone without their permission.

DoctorLaptop’s Tips #76
Using Windows 7 After It Goes Obsolete On 14JAN20.
Following these steps will keep the average user reasonably safe. You can do this now, or anytime before 14JAN20. Do it asap if you want to avoid “scare-ware” popups from Microsoft warning you to buy a Windows 10 Upgrade , that are due to appear on Win 7 systems any day now. However, it is strongly advised to not do any on-line banking or shopping on an obsolete system.
-Go to Windows Update Settings and change the update scheduler to “Never”. Save and exit.
-Use a paid-for premium antivirus program that will continue support for Windows 7. I prefer Kapersky or BitDefender, they will not slow your computer down as much as the others. Be sure to setup scheduled scans in the settings after you install it! These are NOT pre-scheduled by default! If you can’t figure out how to schedule scans, be sure to manually do a full scan once a month and a quick scan once a week. If the scanner finds malware and asks you what to do, choose “quarantine” if offered, otherwise choose “delete”.
Also use these free tools, you can find usage tutorial videos on YouTube if necessary but these tools are simple to use. Install, run, click scan or clean/fix:
-Download and save ADWCleaner from the Malwarebytes website. Run it once a week, before you do your weekly antivirus scan. Let it delete anything it determines is a threat. https://www.malwarebytes.com/adwcleaner/
-Download and install CCleaner. Run both the “cleaner” and “registry fix” functions once a week. Use it as it comes, the settings can be trusted.
https://www.majorgeeks.com/files/details/ccleaner_standard.html
More info…
-Expect the tech/data giants to block Windows 7 access to some services eventually, could be months or years off? Gmail, Outlook, Chrome Browser, Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, SnapChat, etc., are all related to Microsoft in some way, and they will discourage the continued use of Windows 7, with threats and blockages, some real and some dubious.
-Get a secure email to use, not related to the Microsoft/Alphabet/Google conglomerates. These huge email providers data mine all your emails, censor content, are the main targets of hackers and suffer regular data breaches. I suggest www.protonmail.com (free basic plan, or pay for greater storage, Swiss-based) or www.unseen.is (paid email plan only, Iceland-based). These ad-free email services offer super high security, they do not data mine or censor your emails and have very good customer service.
-There are more geeky steps that can be done to maximize Windows 7 security and performance. I include all that in my “Annual PC Clean & Tuneup Maintenance Service”. Only €50, completed overnight.
For Computer Service see my contact info in the Sponsor’s Section Below.

Metal Detector: Hello, Does anybody know where I could hire or borrow a metal detector from? Our 2 year old and I were playing with my jewellery box and we think she may have dropped one of my rings in the garden. Any help would be most gratefully received. My email is jplumptondye@yahoo.co.uk and phone number is 698227800.
Many thanks and thank you to Naythan for his work with Dígamextra.

English Tea Room: I don’t consider myself a “Brit Abroad”. I don’t seek out the company of other expats, I cook Spanish dishes and enjoy Spanish restaurants. But, having said that, I am like many of my fellow English in that I relish a good cup of tea which is quite hard to come by in Spain. Very pleased to report the opening of a cafe in Torrox Costa called Mum’s Tearoom. Not yet well publicised so found entirely by accident. Situated in a parade of shops opposite the big leisure centre, and quite close to Russell’s supermarket, it is a real find. Only the English could wax lyrical about loose tea leaves in a china pot, china cups, scones fresh from the oven with or without cream and jam. Took a lot of will power not to start on one of the delicious cakes on display. I hope they do well. As my wife is wont to say ”use it or lose it”. We certainly will. Colin/Torre del Mar
