Digital Cleaning Day

Image
It's digital clean up day. I'm sorting my new photos and some text documents out on the PC right now - well I'll finish when I'm done this. I was sparked to look at the 5300 posts on Deviant art. There where several with religious connotations and being I'm far from religious these days, they are gone now. There where also a bunch of NSFW images I removed. Also getting the axe where a bunch of selfies and a pile of "digital paintings" that kind of sucked. I went through a second time and deleted several Bryce 3D renders that I just no longer like. In all I remover a couple hundred posts I think. I made a journal entry on DA today saying I blocked someone for the first time. Well I looked in my settings and NOPE, this one was the 2nd. I remember now the other guy was rather aggressive in going on like a mad man "you are copying my style". If I remember correctly he had very little work posted and was not very related to what I was doing, so who th

OneDrive Bug Again

Image
So another bug in the Android version of OneDrive app. I got stuck saying 1 left to upload in the notifications. Once again as all the other bugs, I had to clear the user data and set it all back up again. I swear if I could get cloud service that is as simple and such a low price, I'd switch. Thing is I don't tend to trust a lot of the upstarts and there are many trustworthy clouds that are just expensive in comparison. On a side note, it did the same thing on the PC version yesterday. That's an easy fix, just pause sync then start it up again .  

Flame Fractal-Gate

Image
Just had an interesting thing happen on Devient art. A fellow claimed I was copying his JWildfire fractals. I tend to randomly generate them in the PC app and save the ones I like to play with later. Here's the ticket, there is an app for Android called JWildfire Mini - the screenshot above it from the app and shows "Example016" from the app. This is 100% the same as one of "his" works. He did not even bother to mutate it or change the colors. I looked threw the app and it seems not one of "his works" is actually his. To be fair I've seen people say the app only mutates the samples and does not actually randomly generate the flames. People who use the app tend to send the flame file to the PC to render in way better quality, as the app is highly limited in resolution and quality. There are a number of "scripts" one can use in the PC application to make an image as well as just the random feature. The making of a fractal in the PC app is

The Slow Death of Adult Only Blogs

Image
Well a number of sites have popped up to take the place of Tumblr after it decided to drop most of it's content and bad millions of blogs. I personally like BDSMLR - I used to have a naked blog on there but no longer do, I closed it and opened a new account to just follow things. In the day Tumblr was the go to place for porn blogs, nude blogs, kink blogs and adult story blogs. Now it's a wasteland to the most part. I can see a photo blog anyplace and if I have to deal with the Tumblr interface, I better get content I find worthy. Yes I realize there is a need for family friendly sites, but they exist now. I'm posting on Blogger at this very second. There are tens of millions of family safe blogs on here. However if you want to post adult content, it's doable with a warning screen. I do however realize a 12 year old is not going to see "must be 18 or over to view" and just leave. The reality is, the content is all over the place and if they want to see it, the

2 Day Delivery My Butt

Image
This is just not service. We are used to getting things fast. Don't stamp "2 days delivery" on it if it's going to take over a week. I ordered a keyboard to replace the crappy one I'm typing on right now. I have Prime of course, so ya know. So Wednesday comes and goes then all the sudden on Saturday it finally ships. This this is a very long ways away. I don't know if the Canada Post delivery estimate of Monday is realistic. It has to come her threw Winnipeg and Regina. Then has to be sorted here and sent out. Unless it hits Regina today (Sunday) that is not going to happen I don't think. But we will see. It's as I say a great distance and in a truck, so I seriously doubt it. I am however looking forward to using it. I need a new one, and this one lights up white and has big letters on it. It will be very nice to have.  

Domino's Taco Pizza

Image
This is a Domino's Taco Pizza. I had it a couple weeks ago. It does not originally have Jalapenos on it, I had that added. It was nice and I'm glad I added the peppers. I also hit it with some Sriracha after the first slice - that was even better. On it's own I think I'd give it a 5/10. With peppers 7/10. With Sriracha and peppers 8/10. I think it needs more cheese and I think it should come with the Jalapenos and some hot sauce in the base. Or at least that should be an option and sell 2, calling one the "Spicy Taco Pizza".

10 Movies That Should Not Work But Do

Image
Watched a video of 10 movies that should not work but do. Well I have seen every last one of them so here they are with the IMDB links, the IMDB rating and my rating. Primer (2004) IMDB Rating 6.9 - My Rating: 8 As the video states this is slow and I'm sure a modern audience (young people) will click off after 10 minutes. But for those who like to sit and think while the movie is on, it's awesome. Mandy (2018)   IMDB Rating 6.5 - My Rating: 7 All I need to say to make this worth watching is "demonic drug fueled bikers". The ultra-violent revenge is a bonus. Donnie Darko (2001)   IMDB Rating 8.0 - My Rating: 9 When you are left thinking "is this a demon or magic or just his brain injury making him crazy", it just has the right feel to it all the way threw. On a side note, there is an urban legend of a bunny suit killer that is related to a photo that was supposedly "found film" and when developed there was the bunny suit man dragging the dead body

No Name Original Pasta Sauce

Image
Well I had rather low expectations when I get this. I was however surprised that it was actually quite tasty. Sure I've had better, but they set me back $6 or $8 for a jar of sauce. Yes you do get a hint of metallic taste when you use a can with sauce (it's acidic), but it was still quite good. I paid $1.08 for this and it was well worth it. It's enough sauce to feed a family of 4 easily for an evening meal of pasta. I also ordered their pasta but it was out and they substituted something else. I ended up eating it for 2 days 2 meals a day however as I'm single. But it was good heated up as well (not as good as fresh, but good). I'm doing this well after I tossed the can, so I'm not certain, but I do NOT think it's vegan. For price VS quality I'm going to give it a 7 / 10.

Morning Routine

Image
Hit the bathroom, shave, wash and put on deodorant. Go to the kitchen and take six pills from the front caddy and select witch of the two teas I'll be having. Put on the kettle and have a second glass of water. Go turn on the computer and get dressed. By this time the kettle is boiling and I make my tea and log onto the computer and do my morning things I do on it. That is basically my morning routine.  

Not What It Looks Like

Image
Too bad I did not notice this when the press was full of coffee. It would have been a bit more sinister looking. An empty blister pack of pills and a pot of coffee LOL. When I realized it I had to post it on Instagram. Yuppers. It is of course not what it looks like. I had just filled my pill caddy and the bister pack is from my heart medication. I had left it there and made coffee in the French Press. If you are wondering the medication is Entresto.  

Two Things I Was Wrong About and Some TMI

Image
Thought it had been 10 or 12 years since I last had sex. I am wrong. This photo was taken on Jan 9, 2012. The person who owned the laptop was the last person I had sex with. She even picked up the coffee and doughnut for me - wasn't that nice of her? I helped her set up the new Macbook then as a thank you, we went to her place and... well you know. It's just under 9 years since that date (as of the time I posted this). I have literally no memory of ever owning slipper or pajamas. Well here I am at age 3 in slippers and pajamas. I've said 100 times that I have never owned any and there they are. I do firmly remember back to age 5 not having pajamas anymore, I slept nude from at least that point on. In the evening when we where sure no others would be coming over, my Dad, my Brother and I would often watch TV nude before bed. Mother never did this as she was raised to be ashamed of her body. This is something I'm rather sure most of our relatives never knew but some of my

Ordered My Boston Pizza Gift Card

Image
It's ordered. I will be mailed my $25 gift card. I also have a $10 one from my Bing points for the same place. That should do a nice meal as they are expensive. I don't know if the $10 one will work however, it's a print out one, and some places don't like them. If it doesn't I won't be pissy about it. If I knew it was going to be a print out one I would not have bothered. Next one I get from Bing will be for gas at Esso and I'll give it to my friend to put gas in. I know Esso will take the dang things. At least someone will get use out of it.  

Disaster From The Drain

Image
So this is laundry soap coming up in my kitchen sink. There is no flap valve to stop it from coming in. I have crammed the stopper in it and hope that does the job. It happened 2 weeks ago (about) as well. Yes it's laundry soap, Gain in fact. Gain being the worst for my chemical sensitivities. For this to happen someone has to be washing in their kitchen sink above me. They also have to be using a crap pile of soap to make this much suds come out of my sink. Typically this will happen all the way down the line from the point it started from. I informed management last time and this time. I would like to see them at least send out a notice to each apartment saying "please do no wash clothing in the sink, this causes soap suds to come up in other people drains. Some people are allergic to the soap and are caused problems by it." But who knows if they will do anything. Last time the guy came and ran a snake down the drain, it obviously did literally nothing to stop this. It&
