Temporary Site Problem

Sat, 18 Mar 2017 06:31:44 +0000

Seems as though some one managed to get past stuff and “infect” this website and one other (not really a virus type of thing, just injection of some crap). I *think* I have found the cause. Until then, the themes may be jumping around and looking weird until I find one I like again. Dagnabbit. …



Precognition or Just Bad Luck?

Wed, 09 Nov 2016 01:12:34 +0000

To Sleep was a hard book to write. It started out in one direction then the logistics of it (a reader can only suspend so much belief before the book becomes airborne) got too tangled. I set it aside for a year or more then tried again, this time going in a different direction. But …



Shutting Down Cortana

Sat, 01 Oct 2016 02:47:09 +0000

I don’t like Cortana. Don’t want it. Didn’t ask for it. I find the entire thing not just a waste of resources on my already choked computer, but an invasion of my privacy. If you want to turn the dang thing off though, ha. Microsoft took care of the “off” switch a long time ago. …



Writing the Disabled Character, Part 1

Sat, 27 Aug 2016 05:53:48 +0000

Here I am using the term “disabled” loosely. This can mean anything from quadriplegia to asthma. If an illness/condition is as much a part of their character sketch as their humor, then consider them a “disabled character”. There’s lots of things to keep in mind but right now I want to focus on medication. Some …



Back It Up

Fri, 29 Jul 2016 01:21:04 +0000

I’ve talked about this before. Lectured on it. Gonna do it again ’cause it’s been a while. Back up your work, back up your work, back up your work. In as many places as possible in as many ways as you can think of. Some you do every day to catch ever new word, phrase, …



New Gadetry

Wed, 30 Mar 2016 02:21:06 +0000

So Lorna got a Samsung Galaxy S7 yesterday. She wants to be the one to do all the work on it. Like, remove the bloatware, figure out how everything works, all that. I’ve walked her through a lot of stuff and let her do it all herself. She was really hands-off with her S3. And …



Riding the Waves

Fri, 04 Mar 2016 04:22:58 +0000

Because my muscles are always tense, when I hurt myself, it is always a bucket of fun. The spasms and pain wash over me like waves. Sometimes they go fast like small ripples. Other times they hit like white capped breakers, eroding me away as they slowly pound their way over me. Today my guardian …
