My thoughts and rambling on freewrite and other things

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. 

They shut down the network that allows K-Net phones to receive verification codes

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

Unfortunately no 3G network in my area yet

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.

Sunday Check in Round 1

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.

  • Blogging
  • Writing
  • Researching

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.

bullet points and random thoughts about pedophilia and cannibalism

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.

Rez dog and rez dog life

In a Rez, always carry a stick or a staff with you, when outside of town don’t show any fear or aggression. Usually the wandering dogs will leave you alone. Throwing rocks at a dog is a bad idea. The dog will remember that sting and come after you. Strays and wandering dogs are two different breeds. The wandering dogs have homes and visiting other four legged lurkers.

Rez dogs will kill their rivals either by asphyxiation, ganging up on him/her, drowning the pooch in the ditch, or injuring him/her badly.

Off reserve dog get a crash course lesson on Rez life. Kids harassing chained up dogs, having to deal with other dogs. Then there’s the issue of wolves coming to town.

When a dog mauls someone, he or she is put down. There’s an interesting story about some hoodlum who messed with the wrong dog. When the pooch had enough, he broke free from his chain, chased that idiot to his house. When the cop tried to get him off his attacker, the dog attacked the cop and subsequently got taken out via lead injection.

quick post and random thoughts

Sped got booted out of his box hut by another dog. He wasn’t violent, just sneaked his way in there. My dog wasn’t a happy camper. Pine boughs and dried grass inside, to keep him off the cold floor during the winter time.

I haven’t been writing, but rather researching a lot of things. The trends are disturbing.
After finished reading Red Sparrow by Jason Matthews. I liked how the recipes are included after each end of every chapter. The reason why I picked the book, is due to my current WIP sitting in the back burner or the memory vault. I will have to reread earlier Jason Bourne novels.

Now my next reading material is Area X: The Southern Reach Trilogy, a fantasy/horror/science fiction novel.

Quick thought about polar bears, random and bigfoot

The bush is a dangerous place for a lone hiker. In the outskirts of the Rez, I have to be cautious polar bears, bears, and wolves. I always carry a staff and a knife around in the bush. But I don’t smack the dogs while in town.

My father told me, if you see a polar bear from a distance, don’t make sudden movements, don’t run, back away slowly. Don’t let it see you. If the wind is blowing in your direction, the better your chances of getting away.

Polar bears stalk and prey on humans. The wind can either betray or mask you. Animals have a keen sense of smell. Regardless what people believe, animals are not stupid creatures. Wear drab or earth tone colours, don’t wear bright colours or red, when you’re in the bush.

Whether you believe believe that Sasquatch beings exist. You should be aware that there are various type of creatures in this world, some of which are meaner and nastier than Sasquatch.

Dangerous type of bigfoot is the Gugwe aka Genoskwa. They hunt in groups, known to bite off human faces and carry the victims off.

A regular Sasquatch can toss a large boulder at great distance, killing the target in an instant. Female Sasquatches are not permitted to wander about alone. They’re breeding stock and to prevent other males from snatching them.

thinking about ordering dogfood

All right, while I wait for the power and the internet to come back on.  I am considering in ordering kibble from Walmart. The type of kibble that made my dog’s turd less stinky, was Actr1um, it had been years since I made an order.

16kg bag of kibble sounds all right, but I will have to order other items. The last time I ordered that size, the bag was hefty. I had to use a wheel barrow. Thirty-five pounds sounds good enough, but kibble going rancid got me concerned.

With HST, shipping and handling adding to the expense. To be stingy, a 7kg might be doable, it may last less, but I could squeeze funds for other items. With choices to make, so little time.
