Spinal cord injury – global coordination and support system needed

ShahinaJoly, I read these and I am very sorry that this has happened to someone in your family. My younger brother broke his neck at C1-C2 many years ago and was quadriplegic, on a respirator, constantly sick with pneumonia, until he died a year and a half after his accident. It was one of the

Astronomical Societies – Everyone has a right to see and study the sky, without begging or paying

Luis, I think the default should be – if I am looking at my settings – I want to change them.  I had to figure out that I first had to click on “Make Changes to Primary Member Record” (not a confirmation of changes, but getting permission to change it at all), which was after

Comment on UN fund raising practices on the Internet

Jane, I commented on your “Urgent appeal” posting. You have edited and curated many things. How would you approach the wide variety and purposes of postings on the Internet related to “Afghanistan”?  — Any topic that has millions or billions of entry points on the Internet?

Comments to AllSky group on Facebook

I bought this Arducam MIPI camera for the Raspberry Pi. It is 4672*3496 and the best that anyone seems to have gotten is 1 frame every 10 seconds. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07W6LTFZC.

Comment on how to copy trees and find Birth Parents using Ancestry DNA

I have used Family Tree Maker which syncs to Ancestry. You download the trees to FTM and merge them, and then upload to a new tree. The merging is tedious but better than “save to tree” bit by bit. It is the ONLY method I found that preserves the records as records so that all

This is a “private” group, so nothing posted here is seen or indexed and available except to people who join. I have helped more than a hundred people with finding their birth parents,

About optically connected processors for home use and many things

Note about why I built Sculptor.Org

J, I talked to my sister, T, yesterday. She is one who has painted all her life. Maybe she will have time and space to do it again. For ten years, about 20 hours a week, back from about 1993 to 2003, I ran a website for sculptors. At the end it had 50,000 unique
