Hallelujah! You have finally recognized Rijeka - Grobnik as a motorway, what means it was built before Vrhnika motorway :p

You're right, it is/was an expressway with a speed limit of boring 100 km/h.

Like Whatsapp, with the only difference that it works well.

I have no issues with WhatsApp except for its heavy compression of photos and the fact that is owned by Facebook.

I haven't used Telegram, but I have tried Signal, the problem is that few people use it.

Facebook seems to be downhill, at least in my bubble. The vast majority of user-generated content in my feed is from Americans, my Dutch friends and family hardly post anything. From my perspective it appears that engagement on Facebook is much lower than their 'monthly active users' figures suggest.

I use Facebook simply because of my contacts all over the world, especially after all the places that I've lived. Facebook seems to be the only way to keep them together and stay in touch.
Who wants to write letters these days...

On my mobile, Whatsapp basically misses 4 notifications out of 5, and all inbound calls...
Another flaw is that backups are done once a week and during nights, and only if you have a third party storage (dropbox or similar). Since I turn off my mobile for the night, it basically does not do backups. If you forget to backup and your phone dies, or get stolen, you lose all un-backupped messages.

With Telegram you do nothing, and everything is always up-to-date.

Facebook lost much of interesting content when going mainstream. E.g. some of the content that made Facebook in the start 15 years ago is posted now a days on LinkedIn. The new generations use Insta instead (or other networks) anyway. And whatsapp etc. made peer to peer and group contact management completely different as well.

Oh I never back up any chats. If they're lost, so be it. To me it's a chat, not an email archive or something.

I actually don't use any cloud services. I have disabled them all. I have important stuff backed up on several external hard drives. But I don't actually use my phone that much for important stuff. Maybe I'm old-fashioned that way, I still prefer a desktop PC with a keyboard and mouse. Almost all of my WhatsApp activity is actually through WhatsApp Web, I hate typing on a small screen.

that image is huge on a desktop browser

I'm more of a power user for some applications, like video editing, photo editing, Google Earth research, lots of text input, browsing with 30 or 40 tabs open and alternating between windows quickly. I can't do that on a phone so a PC is still my main device.

I backup and archive everything, digital or physical.
I am the next thing to a hoarder.

Verona, Italy recorded today a minimum temperature of 3.8 °C. This is what the hills north of Verona looked like today:

(in reply to G)

I got a phone call today that it's like that in Tyrol. Yesterday driving through France it was really warm and sunny, and it stayed like that until I got through the Mont Blanc tunnel. After Aosta the sky got really dark and had a minor spot of rain.
This morning in Milan it was all sunny and warm until after lunchtime, and by the time I got to Bologna it was all raining again.
I'm now somewhere between Bologna and Padova, and it's a clear night, not too cold. Tomorrow I'll be loading somewhere south of Venice by the sea (that green bit) , and then I have to be back in London by Friday pm. Not sure yet whether I'll use Brenner or Mont Blanc.

Yesterday I was in Strasbourg, helping to set up with the tennis tournament, and with Switzerland being in the way, unable to transit through with goods in my van without the necessary paperwork, I had to divert via Mont Blanc...

Brotherhood and Unity highway completition is a good sign for the future reconciliation in Balkan. And Grdelica is the biggest infrastructural highway project in Balkan without doubts. I looking forward to drive the section very soon. Amazing project for Balkan.

That "explains" his good relations with Western politicians.

I’ve had two external hard drives crash on me, and lose their contents.
I now use flash drives, ideally duplicated.

cloud services are very cheap these days for anything concerning personal use except the volume of data for large amounts of HD video recordings (say a 24/7 feed of 3 security cameras around an office)

I learned these two lines twenty six years ago and did not read or hear them since then. Now I read something about metrical verses and these lines came into my mind, in original Greek. After 26 years.
I googled a little bit to find if my memories are corrent. Not perfectly, but almost, I hade a mistake at one letter in the last word. Sometimes fully unnecessery things remain in your brain for a long time, sometimes you forget important ones very fast.

Ω ΞΕΙΝ ΑΓΓΕΛΛΕΙΝ ΛΑΚΕΔΑΙΜΟΝΙΟΙΣ ΟΤΙ ΤΗΔΕ ΚΕΙΜΕΘΑ ΤΟΙΣ ΚΕΙΝΩΝ ΡΗΜΑΣΙ ΠΕΙΘΟΜΕΝΟΙ
(It's the famous two lines written on the tombstone of 300 Spartans in Thermopylae).
