Nik Nak’s Daily Teaser — 6-10-2016

Oh, would you believe it … ?

I’ve got MORE printing to do.


Yesterday, I completed what I thought was the last bit of printing I need to do.

I had.

Or, at least, I’d done the last bits of printing … for my new employers.

That was done … 

But frankly?

I’m now off over to my mother’s, to borrow my sister’s printer … to do the last bits the Job Centre needs … !

Oy vey … !


But let’s move on, shall we?

Yesterday’s Teaser saw Olga* and Debbi† putting in their answers: with both scoring ten out of ten.

Let’s see how everyone does with today’s questions, shall we?

Here they are, along with the How To, License and video

Thor Heyerdahl, October 6, 1914 – April 18, 2002.
And this song … 

Enjoy your day … 

*        Actually, Olga, that’s another good reason to get a Mac.   You don’t need the little USB dongle for the mouse and keyboard: they’ve got bluetooth built in.   (Saying that?   I prefer the wired Mac keyboards: they’ve got built in USB hubs.   I’ve had external hard-drive — or wired mice — hooked up to the keyboards for years.   Which leaves the USB ports on the machines for other stuff.)

†        Sorry, I meant training, Debbi!   Honestly, my typing’s getting worse! :D At ANY rate … ?   Nice to know you’re spreading you wings!   (Hmmm … I keep seeing items on Click, about how many Indies are using iPhones — plus a lot of added tripods — to shoot footage.   I’m also very aware Monsters was filmed on digital cameras, edited on a Mac … and shot on a comparatively small budget.)
