Actually, it depends on the size of the boat. With a small motor boat, you can only fish off the coast. With a catamaran like this one, you could easily go to Corsica, Naples, or even Greece, assuming you are a good skipper.

Have you ever been on this boat or similar on a trip to any of these places you mentioned?

Another thing. Corsica is a French island so it makes sense a boat flying the French tricolor could easily dock there. But what about ports in Italy and Greece? I'd guess the coast guard of those countries would stop the boat and ask for documentation. Right?

Tonight, I'm going to show you a beautiful fish.
Look at the photo below.
I'm going to let you guess what kind of fish it is. Maybe Maher, shadow.97, aa1234779 or humbert already have the answer.
When I was young, I used to go fishing off the coast of Le Grau du roi with my father and sometimes we could catch fish like this one. They were usually bigger.

A sailing catamaran like this costs roughly 600 000 €. I'd be glad to sail with humbert, shadow.97 or aa1234779 if they want to buy such a boat.

I looked at Port Carmargue's location on Google Maps. If we did take a sailboat out from there, where would we go? Corsica, Sardinia, Palma, Ibiza or somewhere else? What do we do when we get there? I do know I have to carry large amounts of Dramamine, I get seasick very easily.

Daliil: Like I said I'm glad you're back and the issues you've been having are under control.

I'm not too sure who receives telemetry information and what they do with it. I'm thinking they use that to send you targeted advertizements. One thing is for sure: it's a big money maker. If you check the torrents you'll see that permanently Windows ISO's and activators are everywhere. Clearly M$ has no interest in selling copies of Windows. They make far more money by making sure Windows is on as many computers as possible and selling ads or using that information to their advantage.

Note that the new windows 10 21h1 is here: https://www.nomaher.com/forum/index.php?topic=3350.msg36418#msg36418

Has anyone tried to upgrade a previous version of Windows by mounting the ISO and running the setup program? My experience is that upgrades fail constantly. I can't understand why upgrading Windows is so difficult to do.

Tonight, some exceptional photos are available on the forum.
They were taken today in Port Camargue.

Here are some beautiful boats, in the marina of Port Camargue.

For some of you, those palm trees are certainly reminiscent of the lush vegetation of Florida or India.





Here we are in the shipyard.



In the local market of Port Camargue.
On the right there is a boucherie. They are selling some good jambon.


This shop specializes in local cuisine, with dishes based on seafood.




On the right you can see a fromagerie.


Here are some locals playing petanque. This famous game is essentially played across France. I guess humbert, Maher and Vasudev don't know this game.
In pétanque the objective is to score points by having boules closer to the target than the opponent after all boules have been thrown. This is achieved by throwing or rolling boules closer to the small target ball, known colloquially as a cochonnet, or by hitting the opponents' boules away from the target, while standing inside a circle with both feet on the ground. Note that the word cochonnet also means young pig in French.
Oddly enough, the second country with the largest number of members playing pétangue is Thailand.


Here you can see a small beach, with the town of La Grande Motte in the background. I've been coming in Port Camargue and Le grau du roi for more than 30 years now, so I know this place pretty well. I don't really like la Grande Motte though. while Le Grau du roi is still well preserved despite a large number of tourists during summer, the pyramid-shaped buildings and the numerous tourists on the beach are the symbol of mass tourism which triumphed in the 1980s in la Grande Motte. The identity of La Grande-Motte is inspired by the Mayan pyramids and are the result of a titanic project, started in 1965 and which lasted about fifteen years. This concreteization of the Mediterranean coast was orchestrated by the architect Jean Balladur.

Yep, at last, I'm back. That was a hard time, filled with adventures, successes and failures.)) Anyway, I'm here again.

Thank you very much, humbert! W10Privacy is a great util. BTW, it's interesting, where is going all the telemetry and other private data from Win10, what organization receives it? Is that a main headquarter of Microsoft, or it's regional offices, or what? Does they share this info with special services?
