Blog Needs A New Home

I got an email yesterday saying that my host is going out of business and I need a new place for my site

i briefly considered letting this blog go down with the ship. It’s been a long time. When I started, I didn’t know what blogging was and wanted to find out.

Now, after years of never really having a purpose or theme, I considered letting it go.

But I won’t I like going back in time and see what I was doing years ago. It’s a diary or journal blog, so I guess there is a theme after all.

Happy March First! Happy Friday!

Phone In Bed

I have to stop with the three “It’s” in bed Twitter, Tumblr and TikTok. It keeps me awake too late. Sometimes almost 10:30 or 11. I don’t have any other social media, (except unused LinkedIn.)

I need sleep. More sleep, better sleep all sleep. I like to read, but the phone gets in the way of reading, book in hand, phone on book. By the time I put the phone down, there’s not time to read.

i gotta try to get control .

It’s very cold and winds from the north again this morning. I went to my swim spot yesterday and it was very rough. I think I’ve swam twice in the past 2 months.

Not a very positive post today…

Havva goodun anyway !

Fixthings Friday

Above is the “sunrise” this cloudy morning. Walking the dogs was very quiet , no breeze, no sounds but chickens..

Yesterday afternoon I moved the wifi router downstairs to improve the signal in the apartment. I had to re-open a hole in the drywall to make the cable run U-turn.

This afternoon (or this weekend) I’ll fix the hole and hang the router on the wall downstairs.

Have a great weekend!

Responding To Messages

When I received a message, I respond almost immediately. I must be the only one. Most others take hours, days, or don’t respond at all.

I wonder if people think I’m desperate by replying instantly. I don’t think so. To me, not responding might be kinda rude. It makes me feel unimportant to the person I’m messaging. Of course, a person’s phone is their tool, to use as they wish.

Its still odd, a conversation lasting over days, where the I respond immediately, like a talking conversation, and they reply like they’re mailing a letter snail mail.

What are your thoughts on responding to messages?; Sooner? Or later?

Have a great day!

WiFi Without Internet

on my phone, and probably yours, there’s a Wi-Fi connection and a cellular data connection of your internet service.

What grinds my gears, is that if my phone is connected to a Wi-Fi signal, and there’s no internet on that Wi-Fi, then my phone won’t automatically use the cellular data connection to access the internet. The internetless Wi-Fi effectively prevents internet access.

I have to turn off the Wi-Fi to access the internet, and then remember to turn wi-fi back on again. Pain in thee butt.

And that’s my daily whining and moa ING for today!

Have a Wonderful Wednesday!

Fiber Finally

Finally, after (probably) signing up more than a year ago, I’m getting fiber optic cable to the house.

I’m meeting someone today to run the fiber optic cable from the street into the house. My speed should go from 14 mbs to 80 mbs, which is the plan i chose.

It’s a good day.

Its supposed to rain, but I’m skeptical as the divemasters didn’t seem to know anything about it

Have a great day!

Good Morning!

Im all sad my visitors are gone. It’s back to work today. Below is a picture I took this morning on the dog walk. It looks how I feel.

I will be Okay once I get back to work and get going. Yesterday I cut the drywall and installed the box in the wall for my new internet ADSL line jack. Today I will probably run the cable. If it is not raining. It rained almost all day yesterday.

Have a good day!

Viruslike Adverts

its a not-so-new thing with a lot of apps, like YouTube, to employ qualities of malware and viruses from the past. I’m talking about full screen pop up ads that capture the devices full screen, covering the back button and home buttons in an attempt to force one to watch an ad or other content .

its an ever- increasing feature of more and more apps, like YouTube.

i have an app killer, and adverts like this usually end my use of the app, a lifelong boycott of the advertiser and either a different app that does the same thing, or an older version of the same app, and then make sure the auto update turned off.

A lot of the time, the ad lasts longer than the reason I was checking the app for in the first place.

There’s only two things I don’t like, the way things are, and change! Have a great day!
