SOLID & INRUPT

Man I just love it when I see some actual GOOD news come from the internet instead of the daily garbage the main stream fake news likes to try to feed us. Below is the link to where I first saw the story and as you may can tell I am 100% on board with it. Read all about it Solid and Inrupt . This is a cool website too by the way.

Wow it would be great to see all conservatives get on board with this. Don’t worry, you will never have to worry about “snow flakes” either. You have to be able to think for yourself to to want to build a “POD” and run with this.

Do a Google search. This news is new and you can get in on the ground floor.


 

Tim Berners-Lee: A Magna Carta for the web

 

Sir Tim Berners-Lee invented the world wide web 25 years ago. So it’s worth a listen when he warns us: There’s a battle ahead. Eroding net neutrality, filter bubbles and centralized corporate control all threaten the web’s wide-open spaces. It’s up to users to fight for the right to access and openness. The question is, What kind of Internet do we want? TEDTalks is a daily video podcast of the best talks and performances from the TED Conference, where the world’s leading thinkers and doers give the talk of their lives in 18 minutes (or less). Look for talks on Technology, Entertainment and Design — plus science, business, global issues, the arts and much more.

Wasting Away Some Down Time

My faithful ole Toshiba laptop took a crap on me. It was eight years old so I wasn’t overly upset about it. So right away i started looking for a replacement. Not wanting to pay too much I actually decided to buy an older Dell Latitude. It cost me $130.00 and it worked great. Of course I bought it for a reason, it was completely upgrade able. And I did just that. Bumped the memory up from 4 to 8 gigs. Then I ditched the old disc type hard drive for the newer solid state hard drive, 250gigs up to 500gigs. Did it myself for only &200.00. So now I have $330.00 in it and it is twice as powerful as my old machine.

But that wasn’t the root of the evil. “Windows” of any flavor is the evil. I had just did a large update when my old computer fried. I was over window no matter what it took. I did something that I had wanted to do for years and was too unsure of my skills to make the jump. This time I just said fuck it and didn’t look back. I Rebooted the new/old laptop with Linux. Just freaking did it! To be more specific I now run the Xubuntu 18.04, Bionic Beaver operating system on my laptop. I has been a sweet experience so far and it gets better as I go. Boot times, not have to put up with the Windows spy junk any more, are amazing. I can boot, even with two passwords, in one minute and three seconds. That is just amazing. I haven’t had that pleasure ever with windows. I will never go back. (unless maybe in the future I buy another cheapo machine just to run my Photoshop CS5)

As I type today I am in a hotel room because my damn work truck is broke down again. This has to stop happening soon or something is going to change. I can’t make money like this.

 

 

 

The Hunt is Over

Hey sports fans. I know I’ve been away from this place for a while, again. Sorry. It has been a journey the past couple of months. It started out with the job hunt itself and the absolute determination not to drive a truck for chicken feed wages. Not getting into that trap again. After all the applications and the bs that goes along with it I whittled it down to CTL Transportation. That says a lot because it is not just driving a truck it is hauling hazardous materials. Along with that came a monster of training and learning. It has been the most intensive and scrutinized training of any driving job I’ve attempted to do. The hiring process has taken approximately  five  weeks. I can appreciate the intensity of the training considering that I will be hauling shit that will friggin kill you.

Finally I took off this week on my first load/trip. All was going super cool until right after my first delivery and my trucks breaks decided they didn’t want to work properly. Thank God I was watching my gauges because that was the only warning I got that I had a problem. I was able to get to a safe location and call breakdown. The air compressor on the truck has a governor that tells the compressor when to pump air into the air tanks for the breaks to work. It had intermittently stopped working.

So as goes my luck I broke down and had to have my truck and trailer towed to the Mac Truck dealership for repairs. I sit in a hotel for the second night tonight. But I and the public are safe. That’s all that counts.

Don’t think that the gypsy dreams have stopped, not happening. I’ve just refocused and the plans are building. I’m thinking real property purchase in the near future and a nice RV……maybe homemade. 🙂

Later Yawl !!!
