Prime streaming unsyncing--anyone else having this issue?

It happens every time we rent a video on Prime--there are lags, it falls out of synch, and we have to do a restart with our Firestick. By the time we get to the end, we've adapted and it stops driving us so nuts. Until the next time!

Now it has started happening while streaming series. Not as much, but enough that we notice.

I thought it might be our wifi, but it doesn't happen with Netflix, Kanopy, or YouTube.

The first time it happened with a rented movie, I requested a refund. That was a lot of work to get $3.99 back, and they said it was only a one-time courtesy.

An old desktop MAC--how can I make use of it?

I believe I bought it around 2010. It works beautifully except, of course, that it can no longer be updated. It has a nice, big screen.

Then I have my new little MacBook.

Does anyone know if there's a way I can connect the two so the monitor of the obsolete can be the screen while I'm typing on my laptop?

I did the Google on it and it's either 1. over my head or 2. doesn't look promising.

Thanks in advance if you have a good idea.

Finder--where did I go wrong?

Whenever I try to find anything in finder using Search, it gives me all these other folders. Like script folders! And ds_store folders! I have tried to find this answer in Apple support. Clues?

EEK!

VA and hydroxychloroquine

I am waiting for this to blow up. It passed by on the lower right side of the CNN page at 4 a.m. last night. It's not blowing up yet. Will it?

Finally on front page MSM--African-Americans and COVID-19

NYT today: https://www.nytimes.com/2020/04/07/us/coronavirus-race
(I think their paywall's down for C-19 stories.)

'Ms. Lightfoot, the first black woman to be elected mayor of the city, said in an interview that the statistics were ďamong the most shocking things I think Iíve seen as mayor.Ē'

Update--in Kansas City, Missouri:

AND Dr. Fauci said it out loud today in briefing!

Disproportionate COVID-19 in African Americans

I am waiting for this to blow up in the news. So far, this might be the best thing I've seen. Perhaps because it is early data, it is not hitting anything prominently that I follow. It is important!

Math people, need some help here

Without testing, the data on our rates of infection are unknown. But we do know the # of deaths.
Once we get testing going on a large scale (assuming we do), will we probably show a smaller percentage of deaths--due to proportion?
Please be kind, and answer as if I'm in fifth grade--I'm in recovery from a mathphobic childhood. Thanks!

Detectorists

I've never recommended it to anyone who hasn't thanked me.

He had me at Seamus Heaney

I pulled this up to review the quote Joe used in his speech last night--which, by the way, did not involve teleprompters--and I didn't notice him looking at notes, did you?
He said he often thinks of it and he used it before in a speech in Northern Ireland.
We used a Seamus Heaney poem in our wedding, so I have a little soft spot.

It's fun to get hearts!

Thank you, whoever you are! ❤️❤️❤️❤️
