Jigsaw Puzzle Update

  Another update on my Jigsaws Galore puzzle list.

The Universe is Being a Dick

Image
So on Victoria day (May 23, 2022) I was missing my family a lot. I fire up YouTube on the TV and select music and this is what it recommends, Game Night and Family Diner. Like seriously dude? You know the universe is being a dick to you when...

Doqaus Care1 Bluetooth headphones

Image
Doqaus Care1 Bluetooth headphones are more than adequate for the job and the price was less then $60. The pair easy to my phone and are working very well to date. There is an issue with the Firestick and pairing a Bluetooth device, but it's not the headphones fault. At 50% volume I'm finding them loud enough to satisfy my music binges. The quality of the sound is outstanding as well. Good base and highs alike. They are simply the best headphones I've ever had. 9/10

3 Poems, Just Because

Longing David S. Nicholson May 21, 2021 I want quiet and there will be deafening noise. I want companionship and there will be no one. I want pleasure and there can only be pain. I look for hope and only find more emptiness. I look for peace and there is only conflict. I look for knowledge and there is only ignorance. =----= Fields of Gold David S. Nicholson April 10, 2020 Fields of gold wave in the wind. The sun sets over the city. We gather no more. Once we had conversations over coffee. Now we have masks and gloves. We gather no more. I remember Easter dinner with my family. They are all gone now. We gather no more. We played games and did puzzles. Now there are signs saying to stay away. We gather no more. When this is over will we rejoice? After this curse will we dine together? Or will we still gather no more? =----= Falling Stars David S. Nicholson April 10, 2020 Falling stars. Shut inside. Eat too much. Drank too much. Slept too much. Did not walk enough. I keep hearing coughin

DeviantArt Keeps Sending Me These

Image
DeviantArt, fix your site. I and others are getting a bunch of these sent to us. It is not happening to most people and it's not happening all the time for me. When it does for me, I get 15 to 20 of these a day. It must be a known issue as it says to ignore it if you did not click the link LOL. One guy I saw was getting over 500 of these a day in his email. I honestly marked it as spam, and they are all going to my spam box now. It's not a deal, buy it's obvious their system is not working well, or they have a massive hack bot problem.  

I Vlog on My Phone

Image
  When it's not one take, I edit the vlog with PowerDirector on my Samsung phone. I find it interesting that the PC version is almost the same and 50X the size, as well the Android version seems to process twice as fast, even though the phone is slower than the PC. I'm not the most professional vlogger to say the least. Most of the time it's just a talking head vlog. Also I have shaky hands and the phone does not stabilize (I don't think). So it's not steady. But I'm not trying to push the channel and get thousands of subscribers and earn money off of it, It's a hobby only. To be honest, unless you are doing a vacation vlog, the phone will do fine.

Modem Troubles Kind Of

Image
Had an issue with my Wi-Fi while I was in the Laundry room washing my clothing. I get 4 bars in there even though it's 2 floors below my apartment. It kept saying Couldn't authenticate connection. I sent a reset request remotely to the modem and it did nothing. I was going to give it a hard reset (power cycle) when I got back up, but AFTER I uploaded my vlog in slow motion on the public Wi-Fi in the basement, it started to work again. I've got no idea what the heck. Both the public and mine are from the same service and on the same node of course, so not a clue. I'm on Shaw if you are wondering.

Life Update in 5 Parts

Image
I was cutting the bags open from my grocery delivery as they tie them together and it's not possible to untie them. I slipped with the box cutter and slashed my finger and it also went through the nail. It kind of sucked but I managed to keep all the blood in the sink. It's a week or so later, and it's almost healed, but the nail will give me issues I'm sure. Day after my grocery delivery I had this for a treat dinner. It's basically Kraft Dinner with Sriracha Ranch Dressing and some mixed veggies. It was very good actually. I had hotdogs the next day, with the same dressing on them. Mothers day was yesterday (May 8th) and today (May 9th) would have been Moms 90th birthday. I made a special spicy lentil soup for mothers day, and remembered all the good times we had, and all that we went through together over the years. I really miss my family, but that is life, we all end up loosing them eventually. New laundry soap. I had to order twice for groceries as the shopped

Jigsaw Puzzles Update

Image
I been using Jigsaws Galore for many years on my PC. There is also a version for Mac. I have played thousands of puzzles that I did not keep track of and this last two years I've decided to keep track of them with a list in a word file. Below is the list. I'm not done adding puzzles. I just saved 75 photos from Twitter to use in a new folder and (NSFW) Furry 3 is going to get 21 more in it in the next couple of days. I said a while back I'm stopping at 4000, then I said I'm stopping at 5000. LOL. To be honest, I have room for the puzzles and I will play them eventually unless I drop dead. I am keeping backups in a ZIP file in case the computer packs in, and I won't lost them this way.

3 Different Fees on My Delivery

Image
Grocery delivery I had the other day. There are 3 different charges on it for the service and they tack on about 10% extra on all items you order over the store price. There is of course a delivery fee. Then there is the service fee even though they make 10% on every last item you order. The service fee is more with more items as well - so you get dinged twice for each item. The new one is this Fuel Surcharge. I have my doubts that it does to the driver. I'm rather sure the company is keeping it. Not to mention all the bloody taxes I pay on everything. The ice cream had GST on it, but the chips did not, I find that strange.  

The Depression Trilogy - What I think.

Image
The Depression Trilogy consists of 3 movies on 4 disks. Nymphomaniac is in 2 parts. You start with a Antichrist (2009) . This is a movie that a lot of people find extremely disturbing. There is a scene where the woman destroys the mans testicles with a log, then does something with his man bit that carries the disturbing aspect to a new level of WTAF. She later cuts of her clitoris. This is a movie about profound mental illness being untreated to say the least. It's also an incredibly well done movie with a vast amount of symbolism that is widely debated. I gave it a 10/10. Second is Melancholia (2011) . The main character in this movie is on the verge of absolute panic during her lavish wedding. The sister and brother-in-law try to keep the guests calm and civil the entire time. This is kind of hard being that the world is about to end. The planet Melancholia is about to slam into the earth. This is one long metaphor for mental illness and how families try to deal with it. I gave
