SEP 13, 19 .. FRIDAY THE 13th ..

Oh My .. What would we do without Google and Wikipedia and ..

For information about Friday the 13th .. Check out the below link to CNN ..

I know that I learned a thing-or-two about Friday the 13th.

Now to begin this Post.

So far, I am not able to access Wi-Fi here on my laptop in my apartment. It just will not happen. Maybe Mongolian authorities won’t permit non-residents to use Wi-Fi. I don’t know. I have yet to take my laptop to the library and try it there.

Therein is the issue. I must use the Dell Desktop in my apartment IF I want to do anything on-line while in my home-away-from-home here in Ulaanbaatar.

Now to Windows 10.

Back, way, way, way back in October of 2016, I was in Dubai in the United Arab Emirates struggling with Windows 10. I wanted to replace Windows 10 on my laptop with Windows 7. 

Gullible and friends (read : Computer Geeks) in Dubai who could have made-my-wish come true strongly suggested that I stay with Windows 10 because 100% of all new software would be written for Windows 10.

So I listened and I followed their outstanding / excellent advice.

Here in Ulaanbaatar I am using an elder Dell Computer that has an operating system that is:

Windows 7, Build 7601, an unauthorized copy of Windows that is not genuine nor is it supported by Microsoft.

In spite of this, I have been successfully using Happy’s treasured Dell Desktop, in Happy’s apartment since July 20th of 2015.

“Who Captain? Is Happy?”

“Happy is my landlord and friend and Pal since we met on July 20th 2015 here in Ulaanbaatar.”

Below are photos of us taken July 20th, 2015, here in Ulaanbaatar.

It amazes me that Microsoft will allow the use of an unauthorized / unsupported copy of one of its products.

Obviously Microsoft ‘knows’ about it because they upload messages, here on the screen that I am looking at, to this effect.


Now that I am (after three years working with Windows 10) fairly experienced with Windows 10, I am very happy and extremely pleased that I stuck with Windows 10 back in October 1016.

If nothing else, now working again with Windows 7, I am finding that the uploading and the working with photographs is better (far superior) on Windows 10.

So I do a lot of my processing of photos using my laptop (which does not require Wi-Fi) and then get them onto the desktop of Windows 7 here. So far so good but I am amazed at how I have figured out how to do what I am doing.

Friday the 13th here in Ulaanbaatar

I dragged myself up and out of bed and to an 8am meeting here 50 meters from my apartment because I was asked to ‘please attend’ the meeting by Deegi. Five of us total. I learned that Deegi will be in China / Korea / Japan for three weeks so I am going to host the meeting. I now have a new-to-me translator (I can’t get his Mongolian name but it sounds like ‘Saw’) who seemed to understand what I was saying this morning even though Deegi was translating.

The event of my day and visit so far to Ulaanbattar was seeing Happy, my friend / landlord / Pal-of-four years, off to China on the 4:40pm train. 

Happy talking to Patti in Alaska.

I think that almost-every-female that has ever lived thinks that HER Daddy is the greatest Daddy in the world.

I am here to tell you Happy’s daughters are correct ! They do indeed have the Greatest Daddy in this world.

I counted them as they went past. There were Twenty Seven (coaches) on this train. It was two tenths of a mile (430 paces at 2-1/2 feet per one of my paces) from the station to coach number 4.

Happy, or possibly his daughter Juni, sent me the below photo which I could only access here on my e-mail on the Dell Windows 7 desktop. To get the below photo to post here, I downloaded it from my e-mail. Found it under Computer in downloads. Dragged it from downloads and dropped it onto the desktop ! Then up loaded it into my library on and Voila !

“Captain! You are misleading all of your followers into thinking that you have some idea of, now after eight years and Two Thousand Posts (1,225 on and 775 on blogspot), you actually know-what-your-are-doing.”

Of course Andrej, my Webmaster, knows better!

Yes!  This post here is my two thousand and first (2,001) Post IF you can believe that. 

Time to say Over-And-Out while I am able.

Cap and Patti who’s been with me all-the-way since my first ever Post on August 16, 2011

    Fascinating CNN link about Friday the 13th! How great that you went to the train station to see Happy (and his young daughter) off to China. Happy’s name SO fits him! Happy’s daughters DO have one of the greatest dad’s in the world!! What a blessing that the computer at Happy’s still works and works well .. with your work-arounds with the pictures .. even if it does have Windows 7. Fun post, lots of smiles here!! Love, Patti

      Yes I enjoyed reading about Friday the 13th Thanks-To ‘your’ CNN, the News Network. I’ll have to check out the name on the train coach in Mongolian and find it on the map of Mongolia. I don’t know how, at this point, to access the Windows 10 Character / Symbols App on Windows 7 that I need to look up the name of the place. I am sure it must also be on Windows 7. Happy is so happy. Glad it was fun Post for you. Much Love .. Cap
