USPS tracking discovered


USPS tracking discovered. The code of your message notice is an ID, attached at the front of a message/text from USPS. The number/ ID is becoming more methodical in its tallies. Yes, they are tallies. As those digits change, there is an indication of either a counting (Accounting) or a timer. As the numbers turn, message by message, the digits to the left start freezing. As the numbers to the left start gaining a greater number of digits it becomes more of a countdown, till all digits stop. Are triggers in number movement tied to a specific total, or position of digits? Finding number patterns might reveal the connection between other related elements. And, with concentrated effort, what those elements are.

No new revelations yet. But I must mention, it seems MS is giving advertising carte blanche.This is but a glimpse of 2022. Extreme intrusions in our everyday life by some company wanting our attention and trying everything to gain access to our very thoughts, your next big decision, where you are located. We find it funny when a commercial comes on and talks about what we were discussing or another type of intrusion, that follows what you spend money on and graphs your buying habits. This is happening now and we just grin and think how odd.

Printer issue - WSD port

At some point in life in the past several weeks something happened to my printer and it started having issues printing. The printer is an HP Deskjet 2600 series. The issue was print jobs would get jammed in the queue and I was unable to delete them. The process was:

    The new AMD Software: PRO Edition 22.Q3 Driver has arrived - and AMD claims it delivers the “most significant performance advancements to date in all OpenGL applications”. 

    According to the CPU manufacturer, users can expect up to 72% performance uplifts compared to previous versions. The team has also ensured support for the Windows 11 2022 OS update. 

    The redesigned OpenGL Driver follows a number of high-profile releases from the company, notably the AMD 7000 Series processors, including the AMD Ryzen 7 7700X and the powerful AMD Ryzen 9 7950X.

    Comparing performance

    Following a significant rebrand in June 2022, the business-focused suite, formerly known as Radeon PRO Software for Enterprise, has increased emphasis on accelerating performance and workflows - particularly when using the best 3D modeling software, CAD tools, VFX software, and other hardware-intensive apps. 

    And in a series of benchmark tests, comparing the 22.Q3 driver with the previous iteration, results suggest significant improvements across a range of content creation software.

    Testing on both the AMD W6600 and W6800 professional GPUs, the team behind the new driver saw performance gains between 28-29% in top CAD software SolidWorks.

    In rendering software Autodesk Maya, that figure leaps to 72% running on the W6800; 40% on the W6600. Meanwhile, in CATIA - one of the best architecture software tools - performance gains ranged from 57% to 66%.

    Across the board, AMD reported enhanced model visualizations, improved handling for larger projects, and streamlined operations. For some tools, such as Maya, overall stability and performance has also been enriched.

    “We took the rearchitected OpenGL and tailored it to increase performance for OpenGL-based Creator and CAD applications, such as Autodesk Maya, which has seen improvement increase up to 72% over the previous driver and up to 41% over the competition. The new architecture will also benefit the low-power Radeon PRO workstation graphics cards, significantly improving performance for integrated platforms,” AMD confirmed.
