Wot’s ‘E doin’ ?: Can any readers shed any light on what the geezer in the photo is doing? He walked around our apartment block placing his gadget at various (about 20) points around the building, and taking some sort of readings.
Not important: just curious. John.Torrox Costa.

Updated- Rain Coming Monday morning?: All the major weather services agree for the Gib to Almeria area there is a good chance of rain showers from Monday 2am till possibly as late as 2am Tuesday. Accuweather says there’s a 50-60% chance of thunderstorms at 9am, 3pm and 9pm, none of the others I checked mentioned thunderstorms. Be alert to possible flash flooding. If you suspect lightning, and don’t use protective UPS power supplies for your electronics, unplug your computers and router. Circuit breakers and typical surge protecting power strips, while good at protecting your appliances, are insufficient to protect the more delicate computer gear from a lightning generated power surge. -Ed.

Pets

Dog Owners: This is a warning to dog owners who open their door in the early morning and let your dogs wonder of in the campo. I live in Carraspite Sayalonga,and this morning I was woken up at around seven o’clock by an noise sounding like crying whining and splashing, turning on my lights found a large black Labrador type dog in the pool half under the cover almost drowned, When I went outside to see if I could get it out there was a large German Shepherd type dog also on my terrace,obviously they were together but I wasn’t sure if it was going to be aggressive if I went to the other dog but it stayed to the side . I couldn’t let the other dog drown so I managed to get it out of the pool with a lot of struggling,and they both ran off .
If you own a dog and can’t be bothered to take it out for a walk then I suggest you are not a fit person to own one and should get rid of them.

Wanted: Calligraphy. Is there anyone in the Vinuela/Puente don Manuel area who specialises in Calligraphy? (Or willing to meet someone between Nerja and Torre del Mar.)

Recommendations

Recommendation: I would like to recommend a local firm of plumbers, and electricians MSR ( MULTI SERVICIOS) Telephone number 679501313. They are a Spanish family run business with zero English. Sometimes fewer words are better than many, as they arrived today on a public holiday and completed a list of niggling jobs, to a very high standard.

You Gave Your Phone Number to Twitter for “2 Factor Authentication” Security and Twitter Used it for Targeted Ads: Last year it was Facebook who was caught using phone numbers, provided by its users for 2FA protection, in it’s advertising business. The FTC issued a $5 billion fine against Facebook in July this year. Now this.
After exposing private tweets, plaintext passwords, and personal information for hundreds of thousands of its users in several data losses over the past few years, here is a new security blunder social networking company Twitter admitted today.
Twitter announced that the phone numbers and email addresses of some users provided for two-factor authentication (2FA) protection had been used for targeted advertising purposes— though the company said it was ‘unintentional.’ “We cannot say with certainty how many people were impacted by this, but in an effort to be transparent, we wanted to make everyone aware,” Twitter wrote.

Pets

Home wanted: Due to unforeseen circumstances I am looking for a new home for my fourteen year old cat. She is in good health, very loving and affectionate, spends most of her time indoors sleeping with the occasional wander out side. She would not be happy in a busy household but would make a perfect loving companion for an older lady living on her own. Live in Almachar could meet at El Ingenio.

Prema bar Torre del Mar: Prema in Sanscrit means “LOVE”, the same we feel towards Life. Our project started with an inspiring phrase coined by the poet Wendell Berry: “eating is an agricultural act” and which is why we have created our own organic vegetable garden. Our food is made with love. We believe in the importance of fresh, healthy and local products, so have chosen to sell articles from la Axarquia (the region of Malaga) that are situated on display, demonstrating a model of local consumption which could radically influence the world’s development.
This journey of love continues with the events we organise, such as exhibitions of painting and photography, live music, storytelling, film or documentary screenings, talks about the environment with specific activities such as cleaning local beaches, etc..
Conscious that the children are the future, we have dedicated a cozy playground zone. You are welcome at PREMA, and by supporting our project, together we will sow the seeds of Love.

Licence To Own ‘Airsoft’ Style Air Gun Is Mandatory in Spain: Police are warning people that they must have a licence to own an ‘airsoft’ style plastic pellet shooting air gun. They have denounced two people in Elche for having AirSoft weapons without documentation. The concern is more due to the replica air guns authentic appearance than the possible damage low velocity plastic pellets can do. If you plan to fly with AirSoft guns, or paintball guns, always declare them at check-in. Failure to do so can get you kicked off the flight without refund! Source Link

Windows 7 Computer News Update: After installing this week’s Tuesday Windows Updates, Windows 7 users will start to see nag screens urging them to update to Windows 10. Before you consider doing this you are supposed to visit the website for the manufacturer of the device and see if your model is on their list of Windows 10 Upgrade Supported models. If it is not, you may still be able to update to Windows 10, but it is not without risks. It is very likely that you will eventually get a Windows 10 update, would be weeks, could be years, that makes your old device obsolete. Some become un-startable, others lose wifi or sound as your old hardware no longer supports the latest new Windows 10 features. After an unsupported Windows 10 update it is imperative you keep backups of everything onto another device or the cloud; go ahead and use it, but do not rely on it!
https://msrc-blog.microsoft.com/2019/10/08/october-2019-security-updates-are-available/
https://thehackernews.com/2019/10/microsoft-patch-tuesday-october.html

PS: Note to power users- Do you have an office full of Win 7 comps, unsupported for the update to Win 10, that you don’t want to replace? Then you may want to look at the Win 10 LTSB version, which stands for “Long-term Servicing Branch.” Officially, LTSB is a specialized edition of Windows 10 Enterprise that promises the longest intervals between feature upgrades of any version of the operating system. It’s designed for business networks where updating is a huge task, but it can be used by anyone who buys it. With far fewer updates your aging device may survive longer before MS enforced obsolescence. Here is an info link: https://www.computerworld.com/article/3250464/faq-windows-10-ltsb-explained.html
Here is a link to a free 90 day trial: https://www.microsoft.com/en-in/evalcenter/evaluate-windows-10-enterprise
Also, extended term Win 7 support called Extended Security Updates (ESUs) for registered Microsoft business account holders is available for a price. For Windows Enterprise and Microsoft 365 users, Microsoft will provide ESUs as an “add-on.” For the first year, that add-on is $25 per device. In year 2, coverage will cost $50 per device and in year three, $100 per device. For Windows 7 Pro users, that cost is $50 per device for the first year; $100 for the second and $200 for the third. Supposedly there was an offer of a free year for anyone signing up before Dec 31, but none of the links in this otherwise informative article worked for me.

New laws: Spain plans crackdown on electric scooters. If you use an e-scooter, Segway or any other unregulated personal mobility vehicle in Spain, here’s how the law is about to change.
Spain’s Directorate General of Traffic has approved the following laws for e-scooters and similar vehicles that will come into force shortly:
– Personal mobility vehicles such as electric scooters are now officially considered vehicles across Spain.
– They can no longer be used on pavements. Riders caught doing so will be fined up to €500 by Spanish police.
– Riders can also be fined €500 for using their mobile phone or driving under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs. These “distractions” are the most common causes of fatal accidents involving e-scooters or similar in Spain.
– The maximum speed for all roads is set at 25 km/h. There are also calls for manufacturers to start making this the maximum speed at which personal mobility vehicles can operate. A decision to drop the speed limit for all vehicles on two-way streets in cities from 50 to 30km/h will make it safer for e-scooters to be on the road as well.
– E-scooter owners must have a circulation certificate provided by the manufacturer but they will not need a government registration number as previously considered.
– Riders are advised to wear a reflective vest and take out insurance, although for the moment this isn’t mandatory. There is no law stating that helmet usage is obligatory either.

Animal rights group condemns dog poisoning in Axarquia: Animal welfare group denounces systematic poisoning of dogs in the Axarquia area.
The animal welfare group Tidus has denounced the poisoning of a number of domestic dogs in the hunting areas in the villages scattered across Axarquia.
In particular, the contaminated meat has been found in the vicinity of hunting grounds in Almayate, Torrox, Alcaucin, Riogordo and Colmenar, a number of animals have been killed after ingesting meat containing sharp nails.
So far, dozens of domestic animals have been killed or seriously injured due to the cruel act, and Tidus has begun an investigation alongside the local Guardia Rural to find the culprits.
The organisation is also urging for precaution to dog owners walking their animals in these areas to keep an eye on what their animal is eating and to report anything suspicious to the police.

Velez Malaga approves population control for stray cats: The scheme has been entitled C.E.S. which involves the capture, sterilization and release of female cats to prevent them from breeding.
Although the plan has been approved in principal by the regional government, a allocation still has to be organized in the next 2020 budget in order to start the first wave of sterilizations.
There also needs to be a change in the municipal regulations in order for it to be implemented.
Velez Malaga will not be the first in Andalucía to begin such a program. The scheme is already very successful in Marbella, Mijas, Malaga and Nerja.

Did You Think Artificial Intellegence and Machine Learning Were Being Used By Big Tech To Solve The World’s Problems? Fat Chance!: Actually, limited super high power computer resources that could be used working on curing cancer or some other miracle are instead being used to determine which YouTube videos to recommend to you to keep you on the site. That tells you something about their priorities! Google/YouTube are feeding these systems all the data they collect on you, so it can make their web content ever more addictive. Publicly, the platform says it’s trying to minimize the “amplification of extreme content” (Privately, they have been caught admiting to using it to minimize exposure of political opinions they don’t agree with!). They are always looking for ways to keep users on the site longer, because more time on their site is more advertising income. An overall increase of just 0.24% in viewer “watch time” equates to tens of millions of dollars.
If you want to see just one example just how manipulated we all are by super computers, social media and big tech, read this article from The MIT Technology Review. https://www.technologyreview.com/s/614432/youtube-algorithm-gets-more-addictive/

DoctorLaptop’s Tips #78
-Windows 10 v1803 support ends on November 12. That means no more security updates. You won’t want to do any banking, shopping or emails on a unit not receiving security updates. To check your version type WINVER in the search box, then click on WINVER at the top of the search results box. An info box will open with your version info. You should be on v1903. If you are on v1809 you are still OK but should update to v1903 soon.
If you are on v1803 or earlier you need to update asap. To to so, make sure you are on a good quality internet connection, updating on a campo WiMax connection doesn’t always work. Open Settings/Updates and click “Check for updates”. Let it install all updates it finds, then restart computer. Repeat this updating procedure until you get the No More Updates Available message. If this process has not got you caught up to v1903 then you have an Updater problem of some sort. Necessary prerequisites for your next update may be missing. You may be able to fix this by running a “Error Check” on your System partition, then retry updating.
If that fails, or is above your user level, bring it in for a Maintenance Servicing, updating everything to current is part of the service.
-Ransomware Returns to Southern Spain. A hacker has taken over the computer system of the southern Spanish city of Jerez de la Frontera (by encrypting the contents. -Ed.) and is demanding a ransom paid in bitcoin to unlock it, local officials said Friday. The cyber attack, which has caused outages of services offered through the city’s website, began on Tuesday night, a municipal spokesman told AFP.
Never pay ransom to hackers. Get you computer to a computer service pro asap. Many versions of ransomware encryption can be undone with special tools within the 48 hrs following infection. Source: https://www.thelocal.es/20191004/hacker-seeking-bitcoin-ransom-hits-spanish-citys-computer-sytem
