How to Print from Windows 10 to Airport Extreme USB Printer — May 10, 2019

How to Print from Windows 10 to Airport Extreme USB Printer

Looking for a way to print wirelessly over wifi from a Windows 10 laptop to an Airport Extreme (version 7.7.8) base station with a USB printer connected. The printer is a Canon MX330 series.

I’m able to print from other Mac’s using the wifi network, including an iMac 27″, MacBook Air, MacBook Pro. Haven’t yet figured out how to print from the Windows 10 laptop.

Here’s what answers I’ve found thru web searches and will update this blog post with what works and what doesn’t, after I try them:

Airport Extreme Printing via Windows 8.1 and Windows RT

has detailed instructions [this one uses adding a printer onto a TCP/IP Port]

Windows 10 connecting to apple airport printer

says Apple changed the port they use from 9100 to 9101 [essentially, in Windows, add printer, use port number 9101] and the thread also refers to this 2013 video, Windows Printing For Apple AirPort Extreme without Bonjour Wireless wifi. (and in the video's comment thread, people have said it worked with Windows 8, 10, 7..)

To be continued…

Stay tuned and I’ll update this blog post after I test these solutions and see if any of them work, or if I have to do something different..

essential difference between hypomania and mania — October 28, 2018

essential difference between hypomania and mania

While mania and hypomania have many similar symptoms, like having high energy, rapid thinking. and such. What makes it mania, instead of hypomania. are these differentiating characters:

  1. lasts at least a week
  2. severely impaired from normal functioning, feeling debilitated
Medicinenet states it this way, from https://www.medicinenet.com/mania_vs_hypomania/article.htm#mania_vs_hypomania_facts

What is mania and what is hypomania?

  • Mania is a severe episode of elevated/euphoric or irritable mood and increased energy that usually lasts at least a week and severely interferes with the sufferer’s ability to function.
  • Hypomania is a less severe version of mania, in that it is characterized by somewhat elevated or irritable mood that may more mildly interfere with a person’s functioning to a less debilitating degree than mania.
What Stan said about the decades of a leader’s development — October 27, 2018

What Stan said about the decades of a leader’s development

Sagely insight from leadership coach Stan Endicott, who I heard at the first Thirty.Network signature gathering a few years ago—

  • In your 20’s you discover who you are,
  • in your 30’s you do it,
  • in your 40’s you get really good at it,
  • in your 50’s you train up and teach others how to do what you’ve done, and
  • in your 60’s you’re the wise old sage and you it’s then time to reinvent yourself.

The original quote as captured by Brian who’s been coached by Stan:

Stan Endicott, always reminds me about the mark of the decades…which makes growing older sound like A LOT of fun! Stan says, ‘In your 20’s you discover who you are, in your 30’s you do it, in your 40’s you get really good at it, in your 50’s you train up and teach others how to do what you’ve done and in your 60’s you’re the wise old sage and you it’s then time to reinvent yourself.

How to turn off Google Smarts in Chrome browser?

The latest Google Chrome browser released in September 2018 has a nifty feature called Google Smarts. It makes the omnibox even smarter, the announcement describes it as:

Smart answers directly in your search bar

You know the box at the top of Chrome that combines the search bar and address bar into one? We call it the Omnibox, and we built it so that you can get to your search results as fast as possible. Today, we’re making it even more convenient to use. It will now show you answers directly in the address bar without having to open a new tab—from rich results on public figures or sporting events, to instant answers like the local weather via weather.com or a translation of a foreign word.
