Photo Friday: Framed

September 15, 2017

The Art of Photography, on YouTube, posted a challenge about framing the subject, and I found this guy biking in Portland between two signs.  The color in the signs are too distracting, so I changed it to black and white.

Solution to the Green Screen of Death.

February 11, 2015

As some of you may know, I bought a new computer last week, featuring Windows 8.1.  For the most part, I have been very satisfied with its performance, and ease of access.  I did have one problem that refused to go away, and my wife was experiencing the same problem.  When we went to videos, and pressed play, we would hear the video, but the screen was completely green.

Over the week, I tried different things to try to resolve the issue, and while I had temporary success, the problem would come back with a vengeance.  After looking up the problem on Google, and finding out that many others are having the same problem, so once I found the solution, I vowed to tell those others what I did in hopes that they would have the same success.

This morning, I found someone who gave an answer, and after trying it had very limited success until I added one last step, and as if by magic, everything works.  Here is what I did to fix it, and I hope you have the same success.

Drag the mouse to the lower left hand corner of the screen to call the Windows icon.  Right click on that.

Click on “Control Panel”.

Click on “Network & Internet”

Click on “Internet Options”

Click on “Advanced”

Under the accelerated graphics, check mark “Use software rendering instead of GPU rendering”

Scroll down to the security section, and check mark “Enable 64-bit processes for enhanced protected mode”

Click “Apply”

Click “OK”

Here’s the part the person left off that completes the process.  Restart the computer.

After all this, I checked every video site and they all work.

I hope this helped, and please share this so that others with the same problem can find peace of mind; or at least stop their wife’s nagging about fixing her computer. (Yes, this happened to me.)

enjoy.

Land of Promise

April 13, 2012

This photograph was taken today when I went to the store.  This was right after a rain shower that I got caught in.  The flag reminds me of the land of freedom, and the rainbow reminds me of the promise of God.

The only editing I did to the picture was make it vertical, and darken the image a touch.

Day 86: Fight!!!

March 25, 2012

Fight!!!

 

This property was here

Long before you were born,

And will be here long after.

Man will have his beliefs

That you can’t

Take away from him.

Why waste your time

Fighting for

Something you can’t own.

Fight for respect,

The love of your family,

And the fulfillment of your dreams,

For these are truly yours

And worth fighting for.

Day 84: It Starts With One

March 21, 2012

It Starts With One

 

A blanket of leaves

Starts with one bud,

A choir of angels

Starts with one voice,

A world of change

Starts with one man

And his dream.

Day 75: Voices of the Past

March 9, 2012

Voices of the Past

 

When words won’t come

And I need inspiration fast,

My heart opens its ears

To voices of the past.

Day 64: The Drama of Clouds

February 26, 2012

The Drama of Clouds

 

Many people would say they’re boring,

I call them exciting,

Many people would call them sad,

I call them fun,

Many say they look dead,

I say without them we couldn’t have life.

Without them we don’t

Have rain or snow,

And no matter how many times you look at them

You will never see the same one twice.

Without them,

We wouldn’t have vibrant lightning storms,

This is why I say

When you see clouds approaching

Don’t be depressed,

Appreciate the drama unfolding before you.
