I went back to writing again, of which sporadic. To be honest, I’m not published. Like everyone else, I have difficulties.
Anyways, one of the bad news, that our current rescue had decided closed up shop in my area. She and the team couldn’t deal with onslaught of the negative comments sent to them private DMs.
The founder of Paws of the North Rescue and the Team had suffered a burned out. Much as I hate to see them, Holly had helped me with Winter’s spay and previous girlie Cindy before she vanished. The current spay procedure is around 1100.00 Canadian.
Dogs are being imported in from the US, Ukraine and other countries. Of which had an unfortunate contribution of the overpopulation of dogs in Southern Canada.
Several dogs have here have mange, but with no one to help them I will have to figure things out. Mange, of the non contagious variety is an uncomfortable ailment for pups and dogs alike.
I find yubikeys and security keys quite handy, after early switching to passkey passwordless system. Login is slower than typing in username and password and two factor authentication. I have four spare ones. The first step was using phone as a passkey, the second step is adding security keys as passkeys, after removing them from two factor authentication.
I may have to order more those yubikeys and security keys. Though the idea using facial and finger prints to log in, is something I’m hesitant to use. I used the lock screen and pin number. In my opinion, passwordless authentication had made it easier for Big Tech to zero in on your location. And we’re being herded to our pens.
Passwords and passwords managers are still practical and reliable. And the reason why I believe that facial and finger print recognition can fail at times or false positives, well I live in a First Nation reserve (reservation). Bad drinking water, coarse surfaces.
I recommend researching on the pros and cons of moving to passwordless authentication. Convenience comes at a cost. That’s how things are in this world.
I am back, after taking hiatus from blogging, nothing much has been written on my end. Only random writings. As things go, when you make a comment or a post that those you can’t criticise. Loathe what you’ve written or have different opinion. They would come down on you hard.
Much of the history of this North American continent was hidden and destroyed. My ancestors may have left the continent and came back in some point of the B.C. era. Ergo squashing the white man’s theories.
Stories of man eating giants, red hair giants and tiny people long forgotten.
If you think 2021 is bad, 2022: hold my beer. I’m not surprised anymore. The woke flake culture is a friggin dangerous sect, not only they would go after you, they would go after anyone that you associate with.
Apparently certain individuals so psychotic, so childish, so evil that they had a fit over a book that is deemed problematic and racist. The White Plague Chronicles by some dude named Gene O’Neill.
Things had gone so bad after the backlash that the Silver Shamrock Publishing closed its doors. They removed all of their digital footprint from the web. The authors who published with them, will have to find homes for their novels.
From what I was able to guess that the book is about a terrorists unleashing plague that targets Caucasian people.
In real life Gene specific bio weapons can and will mutate. Leading to “unintended consequences,” where those who had genes of Europeans in their body would get sick and die from it. Basically the book is work of fiction.
Not only that those individuals aka the woke flakes would attack the author of “problematic book” they would attack the cover art creator, the publisher and anyone associated with. Those idiots have no concept of the long term consequences. The morons view themselves as gods.
What are the long term effects of the woke flake cult? Well I would bet that other companies would close their doors. Babies would probably be murdered by those lunatics.
I’m in a agreement that the whole cancellation culture is a power trip and a flood of endorphins that serial killers, paedophiles, baby rapers, jihadis and psychotic individuals get off. I would like to add that the woke flake culture is a terrorist sect.
I’m not pro Russian. The idea of legalized theft is disturbing. What the general public fail to realize, is that when you poke and taunt an adversary that is stronger than you. Don’t be surprised if you lose an eye and several teeth.
What is taken from one group will be taken from another. I don’t agree with the American Government confiscating properties own by the Oligarchs. Most likely the Oligarchs will demand pay pack, of which will not be good. When literal piracy is condoned and justified by the average individuals, they would turn on those who they deemed undesirables.
First the Oligarchs then those of dissenting opinions. Common decency and to go against the flow is considered heinous by the unhinged left.
I believe that leaders are extensions of the people they elect or choose.
What are my thoughts regarding the Freewrite Traveller and second Gen? In my honest opinion, as a member of a First Nation person, nothing at the moment. After watching Two YouTube videos by Bronson Herr. I admit that his review and thoughts on Freewrite second gen were honest.
And after watching several other everyday YouTubers using the Freewrite paperless typewriter. The concept is cool, and the idea of writing before allowing the inner pesky critic to pop up. I agree with their assessment, tap backspace, don’t press on it otherwise you would lose the Mark Twain-esque material and become suicidal depressed.
Let’s face it: among the downsides of writing on a document, the grammar checker. The trick is to tune out the words written on a page, while the words flowing through your fingertips. I stopped using my favourite word processor after I migrated to Linux Distro. Smartedit writer is only available for Windows. Fortunately, my FB friend mentioned Focuswriter. A distraction-free writing application available on Linux, Windows and MacOS. No grammar checker, basic Canadian dictionary, customizable, and downright basic.
Going off topic, Mobile service and the internet in the remote Indian Reserve in Canada is crappy as hell. The three main issues plaguing the remote Rez, power outages, internet connectivity and mobile cell service, regarding two factor authentication and synching data from various devices. The internet connection can go offline for a few days, sometimes weeks. Sometimes cell services can be down for several weeks at the time.
And back to the Freewrite device, typing and scribbling down words. Being old school in my thinking, backing up my work on various devices is my top requirement. Syncing is secondary.
In my opinion, a writer should have only a handful of tools and a means of backing up his/her stuff. Computers are great, but applications and devices will sap the juice from them. Or just croak and holding your writings hostage, permanently.
When I received Freewrite second gen, something would tell me that applications needed for editing are Prowritingaid online editor, Focuswriter and LibreOffice writer. Notes would be for focuswriter, notebooks, notepads and pens to get the juices flowing.
And when there’s a power outage, I would continue typing away and not worry about laptop battery percentage. Goodbye to dry eyes from staring at the laptop screen for long periods of time. Continue with two transgender characters I got brewing some years ago.
On the closing note. My request, I would like the makers of Freewrite to have courier prime and courier Prime Sans fonts. I love those two fonts.
Back in the day we used to get the verification codes from Microsoft, Facebook and other online accounts. While 2G network was gradually replaced to 3G network. My first assumption was that my WIFI caused some interference preventing my phone receiving verification codes.
To my annoyance, my cellular network provider told me that it’s impossible for me to receive verification code on my K-Net Mobile number. They said that they turned off the feature, according to them people were complaining about receiving the spam text. She suggested that I use another mobility cell provider. I had to bite my tongue, not to use strong language. Since there are no other providers available in a remote community. And using another network provider
The receptionist transferred me to K-Net Technician. He mentioned that they are thinking of reactivating the network. I’m hopeful that their answer would be yes. But I’m not holding my breath
This my late Sunday Check in and I’m a day late. I skipped the mid week check in.
What’s been happening since my last bog post. Not much, aside from my researching slowed to a crawl. This is my quick update and here is my tally, no words were written yet, aside from notes and random ideas being jotted down.
I tend to switch Atomic scribbler and Libre Office on two different laptops. Somewhat jarring to write from scratch on ole macbook air that was given to me in late 2018. Atomic scribbler is not available on MacOS. But I make due with what’s available.
Life has habit of tossing us to a curb. My online friend had hit two snags, she dropped her phone and the blasted thing shattered. I believe she transferred recent number to a fresh phone. And she lost her manuscripts. I’m not sure if she recovered her writings.
Unfortunately, we’re still on a 2G network, no word yet on when we would get 3G. I never receive any text from Microsoft, Amazon and Twitter, no matter how many ways I tried. My wireless carrier doesn’t support premium SMS text. It’s pay as you, meaning I have to make sure that I still have funds in K-Net mobile account. At least there’s one gig of data plan ready to go when 3G network is available.
The three major wireless carriers agreed to lower data plans, but consumer group is not happy. Not to call the major wireless carriers cheap bastards. I will let the comment speak for itself.
The CRTC AKA Canadian and Radio Telecommunications Commission had ordered the three National Wireless carriers to come up data plans only to fill in the void in the marketplace. Slim offerings for the consumers, fifteen dollars for 250MB a month on a data plan, and that’s the best offer so far.
Good morning and good afternoon fellow ROW80ers. This SUnday check in, and I am a day late as usual, got some things brewing in my noggin. I may have to order notebooks to scribble random stuff, save those composition notebooks for special occasions.
Long hand writing is an fading art form. Pretty soon it will be art fart code for us ladies and folks who still enjoy the tactile sensation of writing. Digging more into the rabbit trail of conspiracy theories and facts. A weapon that can target an object a mile deep under ground and vaporized the damn thing. Pus it’s plausible and already had happened of which the corrupt politicians sold and traded American military Secrets and resources. Pre-Trump Administration era.
Anyways back to writing, my modest report of these goals.
My research had bore some interesting tidbits. As for the female characters, I’m heading back to Ellen Ripley from Alien and Aliens as a loose template for my female character. To me, it fits like a glove, makes the female character strong with a touch of snarkiness, rather than acting like a douche bag. And a possible female character who suffer from Complete Androgen Insensitivity Syndrome.
My blog is in LibreOffice document in a Macbook air, of which I will have to import it to Atomic Scribbler.
