DuckDuckGo Follow Up

This post is a little late, but I feel it needs to be written. It’s a follow up post to a previous post that explained that I was ditching the google search engine in favour of using the DuckDuckGo search engine.

Well, I am sorry to say that I am back to using google. I liked the formatting of DuckDuckGo, but I really struggled with the quality of the search results. It reminded me of searching on Bing by accident. After not getting the desired results, I would repeat the search on google instead.

In principle it was good, but, being used to google so much made it very hard to change.


For the next seven days, I am moving away from Google, and I am going to start using DuckDuckGo as my search engine.

The main attraction of this search engine is that the supposedly don’t track you, so, less adverts, less privacy risk etc.

It also helps that I quite like the design of the search results page, seems quite clean, much cleaner than google, or dare I say it, Bing.

Well, wish me luck, and we shall see how I get on, using it for searching for work related info, and personal stuff.


Magnetic charging cables, love em

I recently purchased a new USB cable from Amazon.  Its one of these new fangled Magnetic cables and it comes with three “ends” on it, a lightning apple connector, a USB-C connector and a Micro USB connector.

Its designed so that you just leave in the connector to which ever device you choose, and the USB cable bit simply snaps on to it with the power of magnetism.

I have to say, I love them.  I can now leave a connector plugged in to my phone, my iPad, and my Watch charger, and I don’t have to mess around with plugin in the cables, which depending on the device, can be a little tricky at times.  Now, the cable just snaps on automatically.

I have to admit, I like it so much, I have ordered another one so I can get more ends for my other devices.

Highly recommended.

Update on leg, healing nicely.

Latest picture on my leg. It’s been about 6-7 weeks since my operation, and my scars are healing very nicely. I have to say, I think it’s worked as I seem to be able to walk quite canny on it.  I have even been for a few long walks, 2+ miles, and that is something I would have never even contemplated before.

Bionic legs are a go!!!!!!
