I have not abandoned the blogging, but have been very busy with the volunteering and work. What a change from the bad old times at the previous agencia. This one is enjoyable and entertaining (often) and ultimately useful to me because I can be useful to it in its purpose.
I do have ideas and pictures and things, I just need the time and memory to put them here.
I have far too many things on my Desktop and also open in windows to post about. Instead, I slept poorly for half the day, and then spent the rest of the time cleaning up my seriously dangerous method of storing passwords in, essentially, plain text. At least it was not in “the cloud”. I have worked to overwrite the old file so it should be unrecoverable.
Also, I went around closing/deleting accounts for sites I have no use for anymore. Amazon makes it incredibly annoying and deceptive to delete them, and then people like that wonder why laws and regulations appear to micromanage them. Fine job there, Jeffrey [sic].
I have also backt up my Email accounts and even fixed the contact information on some old dude’s accounts that I watch over for trouble. That and started on my tax filings. YaY for proactivity!

You know who you are. Somewhere on the slightly less popular now site Tumboleer, you got a flood of people clicking a link on your site, so now people are reading a transcription of the 1890’s handbill about the “Ass-Hole of America”! Good work?
…if you have been wondering why I haven’t blogged anything at all recently. That is the primary reason. Another is getting a new job very shortly.
I am not abandoning blogging, but do have to slow down for now.
Your continued interest is appreciated.
It appears I have made a mile stone in my blogging.
I’m getting spammed by people smart enough to not get blocked automatically by the WordPress system. I have no idea why this is, all of the sudden, the case. I’ve thrown out probably 6 bad comments so far. Fortunately I pre-approve them, so no one was exposed to their trash.
An apology for my lack of activity this past long week end.
Note: I will be away from the blog for the most part from Tuesday to Sunday. I have a schedule of posts to be uploaded, 1 per day, but I will not be around very much to approve comments. Don’t be shy, just wait and I will read any you post when I get back.
Over two (!) years ago, I started blogging here with the idea that I would post something every day, or close to it. Obviously this hasn’t been the case. Originally I was working in the attic of my grand mother’s house. Later on, I moved and had to work annoying hours.
Now, though, I live closer to work and have found something else to keep me occupied “on the blog”: The back file of the Literary Digest.
The Literary Digest was a very popular and influential newsmagazine back in the 1900s through the mid 1930s. It is really only remembered today for spectacularly botching its prediction of the 1936 presidential election. A sort of “Dewey Defeats Truman” before that other famous messup.
Fortunately for us, the issues pre-1923 have entered the Public Domain and can be freely spread around, which is what I propose to do in this new series. Here is to hoping I can make an interesting post every day out of these old stories and ads.
OK, I know I have been quiet on here for some time, but I hope I can publish more better than <1.0 post/month.
I have settled into my new apartment, but just took a shower today. Mostly because I was too dirty feeling.
I am fighting with my old phone company to get my previous account canceled. I thought I had done so before I moved out, but I guess not.
I bought and had delivered a new 256 GB flash portable SSD drive because I lost the 64 GB one I had been using to date. Which is embarrassing.
On Tuesday, I will hopefully have an important announcement…
