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.
Good evening, this is my first check in for ROW80 round one. I am a bit late. My goals.
·Writing ·Blogging ·And trying out a few new things
I haven’t been writing, though researching bore fruit. Interesting tidbits and random facts. They say that researching leads to hair raising details. Sometimes, I wish that I hadn’t gone into that rabbit trail. But then again, it leaves the weird aftertaste in one’s noggin. Conspiracy theories and facts. It made me wonder if the government and our own military would kill us civilians.
Anyways back to writing. In somewhere in my notebook, I wrote that a young girl lost her breast after someone shot her with gun. Brutal, oh yes indeed. But worth exploring.
Ahoy there and howdy. It’s good to back writing and blogging. What are my plans for A Round of Word in 80 Days 2019? Not sure where to go on the writing journey, but at the moment, I will continue on with my current WIP.
For starters I’m on another document processor called Atomic Scribbler. It’s decent enough for blogging and writing.
My Sasquatch story had fallen flat on it face and I might pick up one of my other several unfinished WIP during this round.
A FB friend of mine suggested that I watched Darker than Black anime. The concept of paying a price of using one’s power is interesting. A common theme in several works of fiction.
We don’t have Major Mobile Carriers in twenty-five FN communities. All twenty-four have 3G network with data plan. With every prepaid plan, it’s a good idea to have at least 2GB and connect to Wi-Fi.
Keewaytinook Okimakanak Mobile AKA K-Net Mobile is First Nation run service provider, pay as you go. 4.00 gives you unlimited SMS/text and 12.00 monthly charge. But no data plans available in my area without the 3G network. Less than a month ago, I tested the radius of the 2G network, while walking around in the outskirts, close to two miles is decent. Considering that it’s a short hike, I had to keep my eyes out for bears, wolves and local Sasquatches. All right, the bars held to a degree.
Around this mid-morning I phoned K-Net Mobile, the secretary informed me that tests are being conducted in my hometown. From her estimation, the latest that 3G network would finally be available in this Rez would be around this December. I routinely turn off Wi-Fi on my mobile, to see if data plans are working and nothing.
After inputting my mobile number, and failed attempts to receive SMS/text from my bank. I deleted the mobile number from my profile. Left my landline home phone and email there.
Judging from the statistics, people go missing everyday. Whether it be pedophilia, harvesting of internal organs or some evil thing.
Pedophilia is a common evil in the world. The depraved minds consider blue eyed fair haired children ideal victims. It is a disturbing thought, that certain groups of people are pushing legalized sex with infants, toddlers and children. The dumbest thing that people would do is to demand more laws, rather than enforcing the existing ones.
Back to the defilement of the human body. Adrenochrome is a substance sought after by elites and various demented bastards. They harvest it from the dead victims after being terrorized and tortured, mostly small children. Women are also the ideal victims. From what I determined that it is addictive and overtime it defiles the individual. Once that his/her dark nature surfaces, it would be like looking at the eyes of the Wendigo.
It’s been said that cannibalism is a curse, to certain Christians, it is a form of judgement sent by God himself. In the days when game is scarce, cannibalism is like a seasonal cold, like an ebb and the flow of the evil tide. It’s kill or be eaten. You can’t reason with them, just fight and take flight. Eating human flesh is a taboo according to the elders of old, for good reasons. There is the foul spirit called the Wendigo and those who are afflicted with a curse.
It made sense that people who aspire to be actors, disappear once they reached hollywood. I had a chitchat with friend on the phone about this subject and the individuals who eat human flesh. According to him, it can’t be cabin fever, so something is up. I didn’t know at the time, regarding adrenochrome and how it’s harvested.
