You probably don’t know the name Grace Hopper, but you should. As a rear admiral in the U.S. Navy, Hopper worked on the first computer, the Harvard Mark 1. And she headed the team that created the ...

Web Africa does it again. Surf the night away all December at https://www.webafrica.co.za/night-surfing/ #SurfWebafrica 
When it comes to the web, Web Africa has got you covered. From fuss free home and business ADSL Internet to cloud-based (VPS) web hosting and everything in between.

Nice overview. Having been using Inbox mostly on my desktop I hadn't noticed the snooze by location that's available in the mobile apps; that's a nice feature.

This video has made me a little sad though. I miss my G3; it got bricked after the last software update was pushed and I've been waiting several weeks for it to come back from repair. Had to fall back on my Cyanogenmodded S3.

If you work near Stellenbosch Square you might want to give the PnP there's new lunch options a try. This was my lunch yesterday. Tasty and quite reasonably priced.

Good video. I knew all this but would like to see more videos about more advanced Word use. One thing I do struggle with is correctly using the features for positioning images. I ascribe my ease of using the layout features in Word to my use of Lotus Manuscript many years ago. While the popular word processor of the time, WordPerfect, was using a horrible inline control character system, Manuscript was using a much more sensible block based layout system very much like that in Word and other modern word processors.

Interestingly I watched this in the YouTube app on my iPad but couldn't leave a comment there. No comments were visible and there were no controls visible to turn them on. I had to open the video in Safari before I could comment.
