I have no idea who made this blog. The text is completely unintelligible to me. I don't even know which language it is. The pictures, however, are pretty neat:

Those ARE really cool!!!! Thanks, Dr. Bill!!! I think it's Japanese, but hopefully someone here is more certain about that.

First time I clicked on it, IE warned some characters weren't supported and asked to install (from MS) South Koren character support. I actually allowed it although I normally just say no because I don't care if a foreign language characters are accurate since I won't be able to read them anyway.

So I'd guess Korean.

Hi, Dr. Bill

I can even recognize a bunch... I wonder what's with all the repetitions of that last green pic, though!

Great pictures. Also believe they came from a collection of a Korean, as the site asked me to download the Korean language characters. Course the pics are so well done the camera may have been made in Japan (Nikon possibly).

Spectacular pictures. I only wish I'd been warned that this link would take from now till we make it to Mars to load on dial-up.

Sorry for not warning ...

I admit that I'm so used to DSL that I sometimes forget that dialup exists. I guess I've been spoiled. I'll try to remember in the future.

Even some relatives and some of my friends forget some of us still live in the stone age. Happy

I was fortunate several years ago with a bargan and only pay $4.99 per mo for a major dial-up provider, which has never once been down or given any trouble. And yes, it can be slow on downloads. I just put it on minimize, and go on with reviewing other post whenever it is slow like this particular site on the pics.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
