Why I Got Cable Again (Shaw BlueSky That Is)

Image
We some of you know already I have gone back to Cable TV and decided to get the BlueSky Package from Shaw that has Small TV and Internet 150. It's a bit different from the normal cable systems I was used to. It's got some cool features I never had in the past.
One thing is You can use voice commands to get the box to do things. Just push the button and say what you want. Say "movies" and it comes up with a list of movies on at the time. Say "sports" and a list of sports comes up.
You can record up to 6 channels at the same time or watch 1 and record 5. The on demand features that most of the good channels have now are easy to access. You select the TV show and in the options list select "episodes" and there you will have all of them listed that are still available.
Right now I am binge watching back episodes of "The Leftovers" from HBO Canada. This is to say the least an enthralling TV show. I can't imagine why people would not pay the …

Good Deal On Cable TV

Image
This is what it looks like when you get a good deal.

So I ordered a deal online with Shaw. It was for Internet 150 and BlueSky TV The deal for the first year is what I pay for just the Internet. Being that I am also getting HBO I will be paying $18 more a month than I was for internet for the first year. The second year I pay $48 more than I could normally for just the internet. After year 2 (end of the contract) I will be paying $63 more than just internet right now. I love this deal.


Now lets factor in that I no longer go for coffee almost every day with Cleaner Guy (ex-friend). That saves me about $50 a month on average. Being that I would have lunch at least twice in that time it's not about $70. So... By not going with Cleaner Guy I save enough to have cable again.


This time instead of the large package I got the small one. This gives me only channels that I actually like. I also (as I said) got HBO. I can watch all my faves first run and not have to wait a year for them to be o…

Google Programming Not So Good At Times

Image
LOL OK at the top is says "Not updated yet". Yet when you tell it to check for updates it says you are up to date. HA. that could not possible be more confusing unless it told you your phone was a banana. Make me thing for a moment then I remember these are the same programmers that gave us YouTube and the cluster of crap that the interface over there is.
I mean on YT the number of comments it says you have is never the same as the actual number of comments if you count them. I have had it tell me there are 5 comments before anyone has actually commented. Being that this bug showed up BEFORE they re-worked the comment section and it's still there tells me something.
I had to really love the time that every browser BUT Chrome worked with YouTube. HA - this is a browser that was designed by the same company. Got to wonder, is this how they lost over a billion in one year?
I have 2 channels on YouTube that I actively use. One of them only for my tags. I don't make a penny …

Special Parking I guess

Image
First off this is an old photo. I may have even mentioned this in a blog before, but I thought it would be nice to say something now that it's in my mind.
First off there is no parking or stopping in this side of the street during school hours. But emergency vehicles can park where ever they want in Saskatchewan. They have an exemption from bylaws and so on. So it's perfectly OK in that respect for this truck to be parked there.
the thing I don't like is that it's a safety issue. There is no parking or stopping on this side of the street in front of schools for a reason. That is so that the kids will be more visible. The fact that there are kids at this school with hearing impairments makes it more essential for them NOT to be parked there.
So this comes down to the fact that someone just wanted to save a few steps and used their privilege to do so. It's kind of interesting to me that this is literally the same person who will give you a ticket for a fire code violati…

Fingernails Grow At Different Rates

Image
Ever notice that all your finger and tole nails grow at a different rate? I sure have. The strange thing is I remember being a kid and they where not as different as now. I don't know if it's because I have bigger fingers now and it's just more easy to notice or that they actually have over time become more different in growth rate. The toenails are ever more dramatic in difference - although over time they tend to grow way slower than my fingers. This is to the point I cut my fingernails twice as often as the toenails. Anyhow this is just an observation...

Sleep Hates Me

Image
Sleep is not my friend this last lifetime or so. Since I was ten I have had a problem with going to sleep. Since I was in my mid twenties I have had a problem staying asleep. It takes a very slight sound to wake me unless I am used to the sound. So something not in the spectrum of normal every day sounds will wake me up. Most of the time I won't actually know why I woke up because what made me wake is over by the time I am all the way awake.
The strange thing is, if someone else is in the apartment with me when I sleep, I will sleep deeper and better. Then again most people tend to be like this unless they are paranoid to some extent. I know when I moved back in with Mom for a time I slept better - then again it was dead quiet out in the trailer court.
Getting used to sounds that will occur often is not actually that hard for me. For example there was a train that went past at about 2 AM every morning when I was on South Hill. As well there was an after hours club on the next block …

Android WiFi File Transfer App (smartDroid)

Image
WiFi File Transfer App is our fiend. The thing will toss a bunch of videos off the phone in a lot less time than connecting it with the cord or even Bluetooth.
Literally the videos I tossed on the PC would have taken 25 to 30 min for me to transfer with the cable plugged in. Instead it was about 90 seconds. I got a cup of coffee came back and it was done.
I've got no idea if there is an Apple version of this. You will have to look it up yourself. As for Windows phones, I have not even seen one in person, let alone know how to do this on one. This is of course Android. The one I am using is the Pro at $1 ($1.38 CDN). It works on my tablet and on my Android Box as well. It does work from phone to phone or phone to tablet as well.
NOTE: doing this on a public WiFi is a risk as it opens a port that anyone can get into.
I gave it a rating of 5 Stars.

Blinded By The Sun And Still No A.C. Installed Oh And Messy Windows I Need To Clean (Is This Title Long Enough?)

Image
Well here I sit trying to do some work in PaintShop Pro and what happens? The sun finally comes out from behind the clouds just in time to hit me in the eyes and blind the monitor. LOL. This would not be remarkable if it has not happened literally every single cloudy day since I got here. If it does not happen, it's only when I am doing something like cleaning or cooking. If I want to watch TV or play on the computer - poof sunlight LOL. On sunny days it's even more bright and hard to see of course.
You might notice the windows are kind of smeared up. Well when I get paid I need to get a spray bottle and some white vinegar. There seems to have been a smoker in this place before me and the windows are totaled. I have washed them 3 times and it is still all messed up like that. It looks grey in the photos but it's kind of a light blue colour, thus me knowing it's from smoking. I was very familiar with this when I lived with Mom and it was my turn to clean the windows.

And Cartooned Myself

Image
Original image imported into PaintShop Pro I used the pen tool with the setting of connect segments to draw around the arias I wanted to fill with color. More detail is very possible if you want to take the time of course. I set the width of the pen tool to 6. The image was 1480 x 1480 to start with. After making the outlines I then changed it from vector to raster layer. Then made a new layer under it. I selected the holes with the magic wand and increased the size of the selection by 2. Then I just filled the layer below with color. Then merged all layers and softened the image a little and added the text. the colours are picked right from the image. The red was just for contrast. It would be very easy to ad in highlights the same way. I wanted it as minimal as I could and this worked well. Anyways - doing the same thing in PhotoShop will give you the same results. It kind of works well for posters and the like.

Saskatchewan 911 Rant

Image
So when you call 911 in Saskatchewan, you get put threw to the operator as normal. The thing is, all the time is wasted. You have to give them your location, and information on what is wrong and why you need emergency services.
Then you get put threw to the cops or an ambulance or the fire department and once again need to give them the same information you just gave the 911 operator. What was the actual point of giving any information to the operator then? They do NOT seem to pass it on to the service you require.
Say I am having a heart attack and am moments from losing my ability to talk. By the time I get threw to the ambulance I may be actually out cold or worse. This is a situation where very second counts. If I have to repeat myself, this is wasting a lot of my time.
You might think it's not much time at all, but it can be the difference between life and death or between having or not having brain damage. I would very much dislike being even more disabled than I am now because…

"I Try Not to Offend Anyone" - good Luck With That

Image
"I try not to offend anyone".
The matter that someone said this offended me a little. Then I started to think "the fact you live in Canada and are white offends some people". The list became long after I thought about it for a moment or five. There is literally no way that you can't offend anyone. Some people are offended if you have black clothing on as "it's a sign of the devil". Some are offended if you pay with a debit card others if you pay with cash. Think about it for a moment... Being offended seems to be our natural state. Most of the time we just ignore it and more on, but it's there every day. Yup... Just keep trying...

I Am Average

I am a cat who pukes in the middle of the night. I am a farmer singing the wrong words to a song. I am a politician who talks out his ass. I am a bum who sleeps on a rail road track. I am average.

Blood on the Coffee Cup...

Image
Sitting here the other day and playing with Bryce 7.1 Pro and noticed this red stuff on the coffee cup. Then I realize it's freaking blood. Then I realize it's on my shirt as well.
Well I had a crack from hell in my top lip over to the right side. Never even noticed it. This is not the first time I ended up bleeding and had no idea it was happening.
There is a thing on my leg right by my butt cheek called a blood cyst. Well as you might think, they fill with blood then explode one day. They (fortunately for my bedding) only seem to pop when I'm sitting on the toilet. I'll get up and there will be a fare amount of the red stuff all over the right side of the seat. This will normally happen the next couple of times I sit on it as well.
Then there was one day there was blood running down the drain in the shower. I'm like WTF? I really never did find where the hell it came from. My guess is it was my diverticulitis acting up and it ran out my butt. See I got these pockets…
