Another long posting

Hi all.
The following has happened.
Windows update, and, adobe reader and flash, codecguide, and realtech dumps.
Continuing to troubleshoot my amd system with drivers uninstalls and the software I am testing.
To be honest since the system is working and its a small but important part of the software I am testing, I may just either let testing go or just ignore that part.
Its 1 start menu and 1 right click to do with the start menu.
Its a pain but I don’t need the start menu necessarily, the reason I got this software was to play smuglers anyway, I mean obviously I will be testing the desktop and a few other things but for me its not as big a deal as it would otherwise be.
Spent time working on network issues at my aunt’s place.
While I do not begrudge them, it looks like the latest update from her previder has defaulted the wireless module.
That means channels, network speed auto controls, and the networks themselves.
This in turn broke several things.
I have been able to get the networks back up so again they work as expected but some of the devices like the tv drive and a few others will now need to be taken to a place to get reformatted to make them work with the networks again.
I am seriously thinking about just switching the tv to either the 2g network or renaming the 2g network and 5 g network on the main devices so the 2g network is named differently instead of the 5g which means if they try this again it will not break as hard.
On the other hand I see no real advantage in doing so.
I have played a few games, run a few tests and the like and have a few more to do.
Most of the last couple weeks has been spent working with the jaredrimer technology network.
There are various site faqs, privacy and well contact pages.
Its taken a bit of doodling with plugin configurations to find what the best is without needing to pay a bundle.
Right now, I have custom 403, 401 messages and a 404 error page setup.
I have also got logical captcha to work and wordpress 2step as well as extra stuff setup for antispam.
This project looks at least for now done.
The heat has gotten up again but has pulled back a bit so I have been able to do more things.
I want to complete my flight sim or rather do more of the tasks now the chinese pack is done, I have the argenteena pack to finnish then I can focus back on the really boring christmas pack.
Next week I go to napia for the art deco.
After which its jono’s birthday followed by round the bays.
Mum has managed to bugger her other knee while fixing something at work and is unble to do much, and is getting things done.
Otherwise everything else seems on track for normal things to happen.
I need to help aunt this weekend with a few extra things.
For now though laters

Ending times

Hi all.
Well its the end of the month and I just havn’t posted.
Lunch with parents was good though I forgot where I went.
Went to carens as usual and that was good, seems an age ago though.
Went to ahipara, and found a new game called oh-snap which is a game where you pull different circular shapes out of a board without the bar snapping and when it does well you lose what you took.
I have won once, the trick is you need to get as many shapes as you can and each size has a value between 5 and 15 points.
Update wize, sound, graphics, adobe and microsoft.
I have started testing supernova screen reader and easyreader for dolphin and while I can’t tell you exactly what I have done, I have tested the 19.01 builds at least 1 of them which are released and submitted a few more configuration issues and sent a few suggestions.
Jono is tentitively this saturday about the only saturday I have free this month.
This maybe the only post I have this month to.

An update

Hi.
Welcome to 2020, and so a new update.
For the last half week or so there has been this mega wind storm and its not been that nice outside either.
Went to town with dad, had lunch and mucked about.
More realtech dumps, codec dumps, and visual studio runtime dumps.
Google chrome has an update to.
Went out and a little shopping, nothing planned on the weekend except for a birthday thing for both my parents at karens place like we do every year for the last 4 or so years now.
Going walking tomorrow and out with dad to see a friend and have coffee and then lunch with both my parents.
Power will be out all day due to a transformer upgrade in the local airiea so no online anything.
Jono has not happened and may not happen for a bit due to him being sick.
Working towards april holiday talked about last entry.
Mum and dad are going to visit a friend who has a terminal illness on friday so its going to be me and nothing else so I have reserved all the extras for friday.
Things like doctor who on demand tv for example.
I am going to try to be up in the morning so I can get most of the morning and night backlog done before the switch off time of 8am, we will be offline till 4.30 pm at which point I will need to reset my fucking radio again!

Happy new year ish

Hi.
Today is the last day of 2019, and I havn’t closed the year with the final posting for it.
So the following was gained from christmas.
1 ginormous box of english truffles, yet to be eaten.
1 pack of almonds, 1 pack of cheese biscuits, a brownie, a box of alcaholic chocolate bottles and a box of favorites, and 2 bottles beer yet to be drunk.
The only things left are the large box of chocolate and the beer.
Clothes wize, I got a shirt and pants andyet to be warn but will do so tonight and an america s cup t shirt which is a nice fit and which I wore yesterday.
Also a pair of shorts which are quite good.
I have a pair of razer nomo speakers which are directed sound speakers made of woven glass and while not as good as stereo speakers are a lot better than my logitech boombox and a lot better than standard computer speakers.
I have gotten a voucher for a store so have used it to buy another usb stick and the new rod stuart album which are both good, and got aunt a belkin universal phone mount.
Computer wize, more codec packs, and realtech drivers got dumped as well as another amd update.
I have played a few more eurofly tasks, doodled with alexa apps and the like.
Then there was dad’s 70th birthday where we all went to the winebox for breakfast, and thad pancakes except dad who had a sammy.
Yesterday was mum’s birthday and we had chicken and a few other things at aunt’s place for dinner.
On the 4th of januaryI will be going out with dad somewhere.
On the 18th is another birthday for dad.
Then there will be a week where I break because I will be at ahipara with mates, then well the rest of the year which is mostly busy, february for a spell its the art deco festival and in may its hawai so yaay for that.
In between this there will be updates for just about everything, adobe font pack and dc are updated just on christmas eve so there will be more.
I know the new chromium update for windows will be on the 15 of january 2020 and the next update for windows in april.
This is me for a bit, talk later.

happy christmas

Hi all.
Today is christmas and the local news paper decides to release the top digital stories, all of them bad, sad and generally not worth the paper they are printed on.
Today adobe decided to release an update to its acrobat and its font dictionaries.
Its christmas and most updates are stopped but not adobe aparently.
Oh well thats all installed so everything continues to continue.
I have spent time looking at alexa games and other things on the main site and starting newer ones.
Little else happened.
I got a new pair of panasonic headphones which look like earmuffs with the classic v in the top and they are really good.
Had lunch quickly on saturday, and did computer work.
Had cousin conner and ryan and sally for dinner monday.
Also went out for a coffee thing with dad and a friend on monday morning.
Yesterday went out to get some christmas cards from the shops with aunt, had lunch and went walking in the reserve behind her house.
Today everyone comes for dinner so christmas day will be a more or less normal day.

A midweek update

Hi all.
Well I am ahead of myself this week so thought I’d post a midweek catchup.
Jono was good, weather was ok unlike today where another storm continues to batter us.
Storms plan to come and go over the christmas period which means we will not be having it nice, 20 degrees during th day and 14-16 at night sounds ok, but its either to hot or to windy.
I know we shouldn’t complain as a lot of the world including our australian naibours are hurting for rain just about now but I still wish we had more heat, less rain and especially the wind and thunder, cut out those and have a nice drizzle and I’d be happy.
Went to jono and had a nice dinner, did some shopping but didn’t get much, and not much else.
Went to aunt’s house, had lunch and mucked about and had coffee out.
Computers continue to continue with few updates.
I have
a pair of headsets with bad falling apart spunges which I will need to get sorted at some point.
I have 2 other sets of studio phones so that won’t be a big issue but still.
Went and finnished the last bit of christmas shopping yesterday and as well as getting presents, I got the ham which I had to go looking for as a lot of places have allready run out of hams or at least the places we looked at.
Apart from thunderbird mail, there are no updates today.
There were plans to go out today but with this beastly weather I don’t see that happening any time soon.
I may post again near or round christmas.
There is a possible lunch this saturday but not much.
Havn’t been walking as mum has been sick with some bug and is now dizzy.

End of week

Hi all.
Well just about everything I use calibre including is updated, the apple stuff is updated to.
Jono today, got him a bottle of chocolates to share.
Not much else to say but I did some collection updates and brought a few more things.
Drives continue to work, ryan’s system is just dead, other than that everything looks like its going to just work.
My issues or at least the ones I mentioned I had are gone, they included a now x wart on my knee which went in a week after dealing with.
My ears are good, my allergies not so much.
Yesterday we got the tree and had a scone and coffee which was good as people made me sit outside which is good because I havn’t done that for a bit.
I have started to get back slowly into eurofly simming and will try to at least start on completing the fucking awefull christmas pack this year so I can finally back that up to dropbox and be done with it completely.
If I can, its going to mean I will have an easier time with it all.
The new eurofly3 is supposed to come out next year and this means the changing of the fucking interface yet again.
I want my packs stored and my profiles updated before that happens so I can well do whatever.
Now if I really want to doodle I may start a new profile and go with it but I doubt it.
All christmas stuff is here including the music and tree and I have a new robby williams christmas disk which is 2 disks so yeah good.
Tomorrow due to the fact some people will be away I will go out and do things like have lunch.
Since I am owed about 16 dollars, I’m going to probably go and have the entire 17 dollar sqid mixer box at ljs I have not had because of price.
