    That's great of you to be there for her, I'm sure she appreciates it. :)

    I've spent many times in the hospital for others over the years, and it really hit's home when you are there yourself and have the support from family and friends.

    It's no fun for anyone being in the hospital, but it makes it more livable when you have someone there you know to help expedite things.

    I did that for my wife and daughter many times, you are mobile and can track down things and people that are needed much faster than they can wired to the bed.

    Even being there to fluff the pillows and being there to listen to their moaning and complaining gives them needed relief. They can sleep much easier, longer and get to sleep quicker. :)

    Then is your tablet using a mobile OS, or is it a tiny desktop when running Windows 10 desktop? Or is it Windows 10 Mobile?

    My point was there are different solutions for different OS's, and where one solution is used on a desktop OS it might not be best too when used on a mobile OS, or even a desktop OS on a mobile device that relies on touch instead of a mouse / touch pad for it's navigation.

    On a mobile device I need / want a VPN when using unknown networks, Opera includes one as part of their product, a nice first step - maybe enough for some for all uses.

    Do you use the same Windows 10 mix of apps on Mobile as on Desktop?

    The proper means...well proper... I use Windows 10 Pro x86 on my tablet. It's an Intel Atom with 2GB of RAM tablet, so Firefox would get a bit too laggy for my taste, running Adblock and so on, so I decided to try Opera. Runs better than Firefox even with Adblock enabled.

    On desktop I have Windows 7. Dunno what happened really. Maybe Firefox accumulated too much crap (cache, etc.) and maybe that was causing the slow down. I do run CCleaner from time to time, though it was very long since my last clean install.
    When I deleted Firefox I also tried to remove as much as possible associated with it. Maybe helped, once I reinstalled Firefox again.

    My shoulder and my hip. I had a motorcycle accident three weeks ago. Lowsided on the left side. Full leathers, full face helmet, race gauntlets and boots kept my hide safe. Soft tissue damage to the shoulder and hip. Pretty painful still with certain motions. Bleh...

    Had to spend some time at Urgent Care tonight. Hemorrhoid popped and I couldn't stop the hemorrhage.
