The Internet & Search Engines – What a Blessing

This Morning’s Question

It is 6:00AM PST in California on a Sunday. I think to myself, “I wonder if Time and Gravity are related in any way”.

Without Hesitation or Thinking Twice

Steps Taken

  • I open Firefox
  • Enter “time gravity rel” in the Google search box
  • Choose the suggestion: “time gravity relationship”
  • Choose the 2nd entry in the search result: “Gravity’s effect on time confirmed – physicsworld.com”
  • Read this EASY for me to UNDERSTAND article written in 2010 by Edwin Cartlidge, a science writer based in Rome

Overcome by the Blessing

I had to write this blurb in praise of:
– the Lord and
– Her children here on earth
– The Internet, a manifestation of Teilhard de Chardin’s concept of a Universal Connection of Human Consciousness
– Search Engines – Google, et al.

Love and peace,
Joe

How to manually update Google Chrome

Background

I didn’t want to run the Google Chrome installer without downloading. After downloading the installer, a warning said that this method sometimes yielded an installation of Chrome that did not automatically check for updates and that it was wise to do that manually.

After searching for a solution for this problem without success, I broke the problem into two parts:

  1. How to Manually Check for Updates.
  2. How to Do the Update if Necessary.

How to Manually Check for Updates

  1. Go to http://googlechromereleases.blogspot.com/
  2. Look for Stable Channel Update
  3. Find the version number for your OS
  4. Click on the Chrome Wrench Icon
  5. Select About Google Chrome

How to Do the Update if Necessary

Selecting About Google Chrome from the Chrome Wrench Icon opens up a dialog that seemingly checked to see if chrome is up to date. In my case it performed the check, and did the update to 21.0.1180.77  from the previous version.
