Blackvue DR900S-2CH Dash Camera Fails To Reliable Connect To WiFi

Blackvue DR900S-2CH Dash Camera Fails To Reliable Connect To WiFi

I recently, (APRIL 2020) had a Blackvue DR900S-2CH Dash Camera installed in my car.  Everything about this device is quite good except it would fail to reliably connect to the WiFi.  I quickly found the solution.  I use an Android LGV30 phone.  I went into the cell phone settings and chose Network & Internet portion settings.  All I had to do was to turn Mobile Date Off. 

Harbor Freight Thunderbolt Solar Panel Kit – Not Recommended

Harbor Freight Thunderbolt Solar Panel Kit – Not Recommended

September 2017, I purchased a Thuderbolt Solar 100 Watt Solar Panel Kit for $154.25.  This kit seemed really clever but the controller failed to work.  I measured the voltage from each solar panel with a volt meter and each panel put our 22 volts.  When all the panel were connected to the controller, nothing happened.  I could not get the controller to turn on.  It was dead.  I waited too long to contact Harbor Freight to get this resolved.  I…

Facebook Should Not Be In A Safe Harbor

Facebook Should Not Be In A Safe Harbor

Opinion Facebook is currently protected by a legal provision called “safe harbor”. The legal definition is that it gives legal protection from liability under specified conditions. Safe harbor is necessary for such industries that provide the pipes through which data flows because their only purpose is to link two opposing points with information. They do not create the content, they provide the connections between the send and receive points. They should not be responsible for the content they move through…

Charter Spectrum Review

Charter Spectrum Review

Charter Spectrum has our cable TV service for our city. I have no issues with any of the people who came to our house to troubleshoot issues. I do despise this utility for their corporate business plan for the following reasons: They refuse to finish fiber optic cables to the homes. They do have fiber optics runs within a quarter of a mile. To finish fiber optic runs to the homes would cost them a lot of money. Their TV packages…

Apple AirPods Definitely Work With LG V30 Cell Phone

Apple AirPods Definitely Work With LG V30 Cell Phone

I have been annoyed with my JayBird X2 Bluetooth headsets for a number of reasons. The ear pieces do not seem to fit into my ear very well.  I have to keep pushing the earbuds into position from time to time on my weekend walks. When I take a walk with my wife, I notice that the cord connecting both headsets rubs against my shirt collar and at times the cord pulls on one of the ear pieces and I…

HTA2037, 20-37″ Universal Flat Panel Stand For TV Or Monitor

My daughter came home with a small used TV/Monitor that her work was getting rid of because it was going out of business.  She only paid $25 for it.  It sat around for the longest time.  I did some research and found the HTA2037 20-37″ Universal Flat Panel swivel TV Stand / Wall Mount Combo.  I ordered it from the Internet.  I was a hoot to build.  It came with so many parts.  It may not be that easy for…

Sirius XM Satellite Radio

Sirius XM Satellite Radio

I do not trust Sirius. I wanted a proposal to be sent to me by e-mail so I would have proof of what I was told over the phone. He refused. I had to repeatedly say I want the account cancelled. I typically make a recommendation or not. I think the Sirius Radio works for some people. It may be worth your consideration.

The Battle For Net Neutrality

The Battle For Net Neutrality

Problem for me is Ed Royce’s phone never picked up. My guess is he might not want to receive these calls. So, let me send the current member of the United States House of Representatives for the 39th District of California my message in this post: “I vigorously support net neutrality which is the reason for this call. In addition, I despise the FCC individuals that are working for corporate gain at the expense of free and fair Internet access for the businesses and individuals of this country. I also, loath the US congress members that work, some times secretly, against what is best for the citizens of this country.”
