18-March-2018. Found a very useful PC file management tool – XYplorer. Tried the 30 day free trial and within minutes purchased the $79.95 pro license. Will be using it to explore and remove files from my Surface Book laptop and external drives.
Beautifully designed interface and program. Highly recommend! http://www.xyplorer.com

2018_0307. An inquiry from my friend Lee Hoffman of Bang The Bay – “Hey Bridget I finished my first episode of bang the kitchen and i am ready to release it but would like your advice on how i should get it copyrighted. the rules have changed for placing ads on videos and i was wondering the other options. i hope all is well with you!!!!”
YouTube has made changes such that monetizing videos is more difficult to do. Recommended Lee put a copyright notice & contact information at the end of the video. Helpful resource – https://www.copyright.gov/circs/circ03.pdf
2018_0306. Updated Filezilla FTP Client (software) on my Surface Book. Helpful that this is free.
2018_0305. Purchased a $29 license for Photo Gallery PRO WordPress.org plugin by SupSystic. I’ve been using the free version for a while and love the software. The PRO version offers a few more gallery designs as well as import image options. Excellent customer support!
2018_0306. Renewed domain and hosting services via Network Solutions. Dismayed that some services were inadvertently added to my account. Need to gather my thoughts and write a letter of concern to Customer Service.
2018_0301. Received my replacement Olympus Stylus TG-2 camera today. So grateful that ebay seller cloutdogg had one for sale. New in box!
2018_0225. 9pm. Showed my camera to GVW last night and he has concluded my constant companion go to camera – a 2013 Olympus TG-2 camera is broken and will require replacement. The port which accepts the charger is loose making charging and the transfer of images very difficult. I have found a new in box unit on ebay and have made an offer of $200. Fingers crossed.
