Tried McAfee Internet Security With Shaw Cable

Image
First off, do you like my graphic? I spent 5 minutes on it. I recently got the Shaw Cable internet add-on "McAfee Internet Security". It's $6 a month and for what you get, it's a great deal. However, McAfee sucked a great deal of resourced. I had it on an older PC and got rid of it quickly for that reason. I thought this PC would be fast enough at 3.4GHZ, but I guess not. I also only have 8GB of ram and the video memory takes some of that as it's an onboard card. I ran it for a couple of days and man did it bog down my system, to an almost unusable degree. Not only did it dramatically hog resources, but it increased the boot time noticeably. It's a great tool if you have the resources to run it, but my PC is older and lacking in memory, so I guess I'm going to have to pass on this. By the way, you get up to ten devices on the software and the modem has more protection as well. It works on Windows, iOS and Android devices. My phone and tablet had no problem

In Facebook Jail Again

Image
I should not have to say this, but there are people eating livestock deworming drugs, so here it goes. THIS IS NOT MEDICAL ADVICE, THIS IS SATIRICAL COMEDY, DON'T TAKE A COMEDIC POST AS MEDICAL ADVICE. There, did I make it clear enough? Anyway. Facebook tossed me in jail for 3 days for posting the thing you see below. You know, after a year and a half of letting people post the same stupidity as real. I appealed and lost almost instantly. I have no doubt in my mind that it was NOT looked at by a human. A moderator would not have gotten to it in literally 10 seconds, so this is doubly bullshit. Anyway, here is my strike and the offending post.

Final Puzzle Count

Image
 Got them all sorted out and now I've got exactly 3000 of them and they are all sorted and saved to multiple hard drives and the cloud. I will continue to save the puzzles I have done from time to time, so I don't lose them if I need to reinstall.

A Puzzle and an Old Photo

Image
308 pieces and 34 minutes. About average for me. This was a fun one to do. I see in the same folder there is a couple other puzzles with boats. I like boats, but have rarely been on one.  A photo from a building that had been renovated quite a lot since this photo was taken. I was amazed how much money they put into it, but was told there was a change in the bylaw to make it imposable to tare it down and build a new one.

Working Is Not Your Right

Image
I hate saying this because it effects people I find to be very good human beings in a negative manner (they get fired or can't get a job). I also 100% stand up for their right to choose not to get the Vaxx if they don't want it, even if I totally disagree with that action. I don't have to support their choices to care about them. There are a lot of people complaining that they got fired for not getting the Vaxx or they can't get a job because it's a requirement. They claim this is a violation of their "right to work" and takes away their freedom of choice. Nothing can be farther from the truth. It's your implicit right to not take it. Not one person on earth is going to come and hold you down and make you get it if you don't want it. Here is the deal, if I don't have the ability or training to do the job, is it a violation of my right to work? Are they taking away my right not to get the training? No they are not. To work for a business or even

Friend Could Not Believe I Typed That Fast

Image
I remember telling a friend "I can type 80 wpm". He could not believe that was even possible. I literally showed him with a typing test program on the computer. I got 83 wpm and a 98% accuracy rate. He thought I was cheating LOL. His mother had worked in an office for many many years and could only do about 40, so he thought that was the human limit. I showed him job listings where they literally ask for 80 wpm minimum. He just literally left my apartment LOL. BTW My spelling seems to have gotten way worse over the years. Oh and I used to know a woman who could type 120 wpm. It was amazing to see. Internet chat with her was fun, just poof there is a long reply all the sudden. I've also slowed down, I bet I'm only about 60 wpm now.

Blogger Font Size Bug

Image
Just noticed this but a few months ago here on Blogger. It happens when you set the text size other than the default and then set the text to Justify. The last paragraph will be set to "Largest". You have to select the last paragraph again then set it to the size of text you want, in my case "Large". It's one of the less annoying bugs that has happened on here, but it's there.  

When Someone With Way More Complains About Money

Image
That moment you hear someone complaining about money and you know they have way the hell more than you have. So the person in question was literally given a house. He literally makes 5X a month (after taxes) than I do. He also never goes anywhere or does anything. He tends to stay home alone all the time. "The hell are you spending all your money on", is all I have to say. How can you possibly be broke, you don't even go out to eat because you don't want to be around people. There has to be something I'm not seeing here. The person also works from home BTW. Got not one clue why they say they have no money. It's a case of someone who is massively exaggerating their finances or they have some kind of spending habit I don't know about. Either way, just WTH? Honestly, I try not to judge people, because you just never know what is going on, but just wow on this one. They don't have any living relatives either, so they is not a source of funds flowing out. O

YouTube Music Voice Search Censors Swear Words

Image
 This is a screen shot from my phone of YouTube Music when I used the voice search option (tapping the mic in the top right). Well there seems to be no way on earth to make it stop censoring "bad words". It also is not intelligent enough to search what you said, but the blanked out version of it is what it searches. Thus you do not get what you are looking for. The Google voice to text and voice search can be set on your android phone to NOT do this. I don't have a clue why YouTube would not have the option to not have this happen. If a person relies on voice search because of physical limitations, they are out of luck to search things like "Fuck the System" by System of a Down.

Got My Steps in and a Memory

Image
First off, for a normal person this is not that big a deal, but when you are as disabled as me, it is. I can hardly walk to the kitchen some days. I spent a week before this only clocking in about 350 steps as it hurt too much to walk far. So for 2 days in a row to get over my goal of 1000 steps is great. I got a lot done yesterday, like cleaning all the stuff out of here that needed tossing out, or recycling. This is a memory from the day I moved in here about 5 years ago. This is candy bags in the entry way of my building from a funeral home, I guess they where trying to drum up business. The thing is, almost everyone in this building is going to be a state funeral, so it's pointless. We don't have money to play it out in advance and for the most part have no relatives to spend the money planting our dead bodies. Personally, I just want to be cremated and dumped in an unmarked grave and forgotten.

Yeah, That's a Scam

Image
Have you noticed that there has been a wild jump in the amount of scams going around on Facebook and in spam emails? This is so obviously a scam. There is just no way you are getting a new in the box Dell for $59.95 shipped. Just not going to happen. They would be spending more money to ship it to you than they make off of you. Even if they got them for FREE, this would not make sense. First clue is they cannot use English properly. Second clue, the logo is almost the same as the original AT&T logo. Third, it's a stock clipart image from a free site that has been cropped to hide the watermark. The vast majority of licensed resellers would also have a recognizable company name like "Staples" for example. He is the thing, I live in Canada. This one is a double hit. First it tells you someone wants to give you half a million dollars. Then it says it's some kind of security risk to the USA and if you do not provide all your personal data, they will come and arrest you

It's Not Counting All My Steps

Image
 I been trying to count my steps with the phone, as I'm using it to track weight and several other things anyway. It seems it's NOT counting all my steps. I figured it was very short on the count the other day and counted out 60 steps and it had recorded 12 of them. I have my goal set to 1,000 only as I'm about 10% as able to move around as an average person who's goal would be 10,000 steps. Now I know why I have been falling short to say the least. So I guess in reality I'm probably doing better than I thought I would be. I'm using a Galaxy A50 and I don't have a fitness watch.

12 Horror Movies From the 1970's I Loved and You May Never Have Heard Seen

Image
 The Creeping Flesh (1973) 9/10 A scientist discovers a giant skeleton and finds the flesh will grow back if water is spilled on it. He then becomes convinced that it’s the origin of evil and that evil is a disease of the blood. At the end of the movie there is a rather large plot twist, and you are left wondering if any of it is real or not.

ONEDRIVE APP ON MY PHONE BLEW UP YET AGAIN

Image
In the screen cap is what my OneDrive is saying on my phone. Below is a screen cap of my credit card payments. You can see the payment cleared on the 3rd of July, and this is the 26th of July. I am not due to be billed until the 3rd of August. So why the hell is it telling my my payment method is not good. Also there is $9 left on the card and the subscription after taxes is $8.88 a month. So what the hell? To top it all off, it is actually working properly. I can upload, downlead, share and everything. Office on the PC is operating fine and NOT giving me this notice. OneDrive on my PC is NOT giving me this notice. It's just on my phone. It's obviously linked to my proper account, so I just have no clue what is going on. I tried the Microsoft Help bot on Twitter and I can't get it to feck off and give me a human. I just put a payment on my card today that will very much more than fix things, even if they fucked up and charged me for a year. BTW if they did fuck up and charg

OLD PC FRUSTRATION

Image
So I have an older PC and it's reconditioned. It has a 1TB hard drive in it. I can't afford to toss in an SSD, as it would be about as much to order one as I paid for the entire system. So this is a pain in the butt every time I turn on my PC. The hard drive is going solid for 10 to 15 minutes literally every time I turn it on. I've got not one clue what the living hell it's doing either. I look at the upstate section in settings and nope, it's not updating. I look at security and nope, it's not running a scan. I look at task manager and nothing that is showing up in there is telling me it's using a hell of a lot of resources, yet it's stetting at 75% processor time being used. Hell I've run deep scans with the virus scanner and nothing is showing up. It can't possibly be defragging the hard drive literally every day. This started to happen after the last really big update to windows 10. Before that it would chew on the drive doing it's thing

THE TROUBLE WITH GOING FOR COFFEE

Image
BTW the sign says "Trucks in the rest. lot will be toed". This rather humorous faux pas is not why I'm posting this photo however, it's the addition you see closest to the camera. For the reason, my friend has no hope of getting into a booth, we sit in this addition. He is quite disabled, so we need to be in the half booth in the back here. He can just slide in this way and get back up with a lot greater ease, as if we where in a full booth. However, in the summer, there is no A.C. in this section, and the windows on the roof like that make it nice and bright in there, but it also makes it very hot in there. I'm sensitive to the heat because of my health and when it's over 30C outside, I am in a bit of distress sitting in that section and often don't last more than 90 minutes or so. The heat makes me feel sick and dizzy quite easily. It also gives me a headache because it raises my blood pressure. This is never good and can lead to a stroke or heart attack

FAKE NUDIST RANT

Image
I'm a nudist and I like to follow other nudists online. The problem on Twitter when you do this, is that a LOT of people on there are lying as to who or what they are. An exhibitionist is NOT the same thing as a nudist. For days now I've been seeing Fleet posts and Feed posts with erect penises and even a jerk off video. Sigh. I just want to be part of a community and be happy with that. NOPE. Got to have these fake ass people with their porn pics and videos stamping the word "nudist" on their page. Today I went through over 50 pages I had followed and looked way back at their content. Well, most of them did not make the grade. There is nothing wrong with showing a full body frontal nude if you ask me, but if you are playing with yourself or have an erection, you are not promoting the nude lifestyle, you are promoting something totally different. I also unfollowed a few places (resorts) that I have no hope of ever going to, why bother if I won't ever make it to th

FINISHED ALL THE PUZZLES THAT CAME WITH JIGSAWS GALORE

Image
Just did the last four puzzles in the free batch from Jigsaws Galore and they where harder than the usual, it's why I saved them for last. I think the program is well worth the money he is asking for it. I've had hours and hours of fun out of it over the years I've owned it. I've had it on 4 PC's now and now I have gotten into the habit of backing up the puzzles with the save files in a zip, so if I need to reinstall, I will have the ones I played still solved. Well here is a screen shot of the last four after being solved. 

I Have 2584 Jigsaw Puzzles I Want To Do

Image
I just finished sorting all my puzzles, and getting rid of a bunch that I did not want to do as puzzles. All the originals are still in there, but a bunch I had made I changed my mind on. As well I recently made a set of 30 puzzles that are between 400 and 800 pieces (6 each of 400, 500, 600, 700, 800). Now this is my count in all the folders I have for puzzles in Jigsaws Galore . These are all for my personal use. A lot of them are not my original content, but where images free to download for personal use. I seriously like doing Jigsaw puzzles and at the time of this post, I have done 210 of them in Jigsaws Galore .

PHOTOS I USED FOR JIGSAW PUZZLES

Image
I recently created 5 sets of puzzles for Jigsaws Galore for my own use. All my photos I have taken over the years, and decided to share the photos. This first set is at the armories in Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan, and where 400 pieces each. This second set was at Java Express in Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan. The place has been closed for years now, and I miss going there. The puzzles where 500 pieces each. This next set is at Punnichy, Saskatchewan, and the junk yard was selling it's stock off and closing. This was a number of years ago. They where 600 pieces each. This next set is in Crescent Park in Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan. It includes the Library and the Art museum. They where 700 pieces each. Last set was taken in Tugaske, Saskatchewan on a road trip we took several years ago. They where 800 pieces each.
