IRS ‘Free File Fillable Forms’: Two Changes To 2016 e-File Process.

Continues to work, and work very well.

Just filed, yes, e-Filed, my 2016 IRS Tax return using “Free File Fillable Forms“, on Friday — this my 7th year using them.

No real problems other than me screwing up two things that e-File pre-processing picked up.

But, noticed two (2) BIG changes in the e-File process.

I guess this is to enhance filing security after the fraudulent e-File claim scandals of the last couple of years.

So, here are the two changes:

1/ You have to include Driver’s License information.

2/ There is CAPTCHA human verification before you are allowed to enter e-Filing.

The first, i.e., requiring further identification, in this instance Driver’s License (or State-issued ID) data makes sense though it was a pain to go get our licenses. Having to enter the issued date really does make the difference. You couldn’t fudge that.

But, I am confused by the CAPTCHA. That is only to ensure human participation. I didn’t realize that there had been a problem of automated, robotic filings. Wow.

87-Years Ago Today, March 12, 1930, Mahatma Gandhi Set Off On The ‘Salt March’ — A Major Milestone In Indian Independence.

by Anura Guruge


Setting off on THE MARCH. If you have seen the movie ‘Gandhi’ you will remember it well.


The ‘Salt March‘ is well depicted in the 1982 movie ‘Gandhi‘ starring Ben Kinsley.

IF you haven’t seen it you have done YOURSELF a huge disservice.

Good NEWS, it is available for FREE on YouTube.

I have watched this 191 minute movie, yes, 3 hours and 11 minutes, at least 4 times.

Evolution & Timing Of The Sony Full-Frame a7 Family — Ahead Of Possible a7 III Announcement Next Week.

by Anura Guruge


The possibility of the Sony FF a7 III being announced at the
March 18 – 21, 2017, “The Photography Show“, in the U.K.
was discussed in this post.


The a7 III intrigues me.

IF it has the same sensor technology as the a6500 then it could be the best of all Worlds in the context of Sony: Full Frame, In-Body Image Stabilization (IBIS), latest sensor technology and reasonable (i.e., 24 MP) resolution. So, I am waiting to see what happens. Yes, I could tempted to get the a7 II(I) rather than the a6500. I waited this long. {SMILE}

As is my wont, in my scarce spare time I did a quick Excel to compare the a7s and to see their announcement schedule.

No, the a7S nor a7R, in either version, interests me. I could not deal with 42MP!

So here is the Excel spreadsheet.
