13 January 2018. Two Things Upped My Productivity Recently

________________________

Two things upped my productivity recently. Let’s start with the simpler item… I bought an ordinary ten-buck keyboard and plugged it into the laptop (actually, into a splitter box, but let’s not get too technical). Laptop keyboards are SHITTY. On top of that, some of the keys weren’t functioning at par. They weren’t dead, but it was difficult to get them to work correctly. That slowed down my speed considerably and made it harder to do any creative writing whatsoever. With an ordinary desktop-style keyboard, my speed quickly went back up to where it should be, and if there’s trouble with it, I need only shitcan it and replace it with another ten-buck wonder.

Secondly, we were hacked seriously. In correspondence with friends, this has happened recently to all sorts of anti-Hillary people. For instance, the Hillarybots hacked the email of Ajamu Baraka and the Green Party. They scream about “Russian hackers”… what lying sacks o’ shit! They’re the ones who resort to hacking and computer manipulation as a first resort, not the Russians (who do a good job of deterring and countering American cyberattacks, thank you very much). It cost us a bit of money, but we put up cyberdefences against any further such shenanigans. Remember… Hillary wanted Eddie Snowdon’s head… but he was able to foil her and her sock-puppet Obama. Sadly, we weren’t the only people it happened to… coincidentally, all of them were anti-Hillary to one extent or another. Fancy that…

Therefore, I’m getting back up to snuff… actually, the biggest improvement is having a real keyboard to punch. It’s FUN tickling the keys… that is, if you’re a ten-finger typist like me. Have a good one, all…

We had a rum router box and a bad central office connection that knocked us off the internet for a while. The Verizon guy came on Monday, but he couldn’t put it right then. Therefore, he came back today and put everything right. The cat’s back and feistier than ever…

1 October 2017. I Was in a REAL Blue Funk… Now, It’s Over!

I’ve been in a blue funk lately… dealing with craziness in the Real World. Firstly, my Nicky had a severe diabetic episode. Our phone was on the fritz, so I had to run to the police station (luckily, across the street) at 0230 to get the paramedics to come and attend to him. Nicky was in hospital for a day, but he’s on the mend now. Secondly, I had to deal with a minor legal matter. I had a very slight fender-bender (no damage to our car… the other had its bumper out of alignment for less than an inch) while parking. Well… the cop ran our licences… he found out that Nicky had a suspended licence (he didn’t know it), so since I had a learner’s permit, the cop cited me for Unlicenced Operation. Nicky got things squared away with DMV (they needed a doctor’s OK, which hadn’t reached them). I went to court Friday on that… it took all of 30 seconds. I said three things to the judge… “Yes, sir”… “Yes, sir”… “Thank you”. I got an acquittal, with nothing on my record if I don’t screw up again in the next six months. I spent 90 minutes waiting… 30 seconds to dispose of it. That’s OVER… whew!

I can see where my “block” came from… I had real-deal situations to handle, and they did take priority over the cyberworld. It feels good. God willing, I’ll keep my second wind…

26 August 2017. I’ve Been in a Rough Patch… A Dark Night of the Intellect

I’ve been in a Dark Night of the Intellect recently. I found myself with hardly anything useful to say… so, I simply stopped posting for a while. I did repost articles on my FB page, but I didn’t have anything of value to say, so, I wasn’t posting here. I’m back. I find myself re-energised. I’ll still post spottily over the weekdays, but I’m back full-force on the weekends. Remember… love rules this house… a love of the truth, love of life, love of God, and love for my friends. You can always tell the haters, can’t you? They’re against this and that… well, I’m FOR this and that, and anyone can see the obvious difference.

Take my hand… the road goes ever onward, but there’s still a rough patch or two ahead…
