๐Ÿ”น Vessel finder

We are all familiar with Flight Radar 24 to follow planes and flights, well there is something similar for ships & vessels: https://www.vesselfinder.com/ Thank you Mr B for the info.

You might be surprised at the number of vessels underway around the world. See if you can find the sailing yachts currently taking part in the Vendรฉe Globe Round the World race!

That should occupy you a while during these confinement days

๐Ÿ”น Unwanted calls

As a rule I do not answer calls from unknown numbers. I check the number on the internet to see if they might have been a threat or nuisance and I block the number in case they were. If they call again, I never know about it. This is important if you know that they are โ€žbadโ€œ numbers.

I have however discovered a fairly new feature on my Apple which will all but eliminate all these robocalls, spam calls ringing my phone (probably available also) on non Apple phones. With the new Silence Unknown Callers feature turned on, the only time your iPhone will ring is if you know the person calling you i.e if the number is in your contact list.ย If not, it will put the caller straight to your voice mailbox where if it is genuine they can leave a message. As opposed to a blocked number, you get a summary of the calls. You have to have OS13 or higher installed to get this feature. Since yesterday, already 3 unwanted calls were blocked that way.

This is how you set it up on the iPhone:

๐Ÿ”นMoon landing

I saw a replica of the craft at the Space Centre in Toulouse a few weeks ago.

The spate of bad news about the virus tends to block other news and for instance the fact that 2 days ago the Chinese probe sent to the moon to bring back the first lunar samples in four decades has successfully landed. The Changโ€™e-5 spacecraft โ€“ named after the Chinese moon goddess โ€“ landed on the near side of the moon late on Tuesday. If the return journey is successful, China will be only the third country to have retrieved samples from the moon, following the US and Soviet Union in the 60s and 70s.
