Hi.
Managed to get my first fizer tomorrow at 10.30 then my second on 4th of september at 3 in the afternoon.
Tried yesterday and the dates were way late.
My dad again managed to weedle the contact centre down a load and well its all on.
Slightly nervous even though I have read the entire official site but still.
Its going to put me out though like a load.
I will be canceling my semi appointments for tomorrow most likely just in case.
Also I will be out completely of kilter.
On both days I will get my training done though and well there you go.
Then every 6 months to a year I will get a booster I guess.
Went to town and had lunch in new market, got coffee and various things.
The malls in new market is good the westfield is a wide open space, with internal and roof top dining.
I plan to make it over summer.
Game testing continues and I may or may not have something in the works job wize later on.
The train sim has had the sounds I put in put in and its all working well.
Everything is fine for now.
Been looking at net providers due to price changes and have decided to stay where I am for now.
Little else to say except I continue to continue.

Hi.
Well got into testing a new train simulator well multi vehicle simulator.
Most of this week has been spent compressing the various sound archives from their original value of 4.3gb to around 680mb.
The files are in 192kbps 44100 ogg format and were in wav format before that.
I need to read the manual and test things some more but well not much to say on that.
I have been out with family, walking, training, eating, and a few things in the middle.
Going out to do some shopping for more stuff for the house.
Maybe I go to town next week, who knows.
As usual, nothing else to say or do.
Oh we won the rugby again, it was good.

Hi all.
Well, got into 1 beta test and not another.
The formentioned test goes well but I can’t say what exactly it is but yeah its good.
Submitted 2 bug reports after playing the game for 5 hours and obviously finnishing it.
Again, no names, can’t do that.
I have a 20 dollar table testing thing on today at 1 pm over zoom.
I may have other things to test but who knows.
A lot of security and other news won’t mention here.
Well, bits of australia are open to us some are not.
And we are still not locked down, for some reason the latest scare did not happen.
Either we are lucky or someone told the government to cancel the lockdown or else because its been canceled.
Little of note happened last week except I had an outing to celebrate my birthday with my brother, and also went to a nice eatery with friends last friday called simese doll which was nice.
Little else has happened.
Projected outcomes for the following 6 months.
Nothing at all.
There are no planns bar updates for the next 6 months.
Nothing out of the ordinary.

Hi all.
Not much going on.
Had birthday, got clothes and chocolate.
Got tea from jono and other things.
Had a nice time and dinner.
Then after after going at it for 2 days jono decided he had enough and crashed just as things ended.
Guess with the covid deal friends from au will not be coming over oh well.
This morning will be the point our government decides to lock us down again, no cases but still who knows.
No idea what will happen today.
Almost not worth actually keeping this going.
More and more stuff outside control.
Still no real work, still more mucking about.

The biggest news is that windows 11 will come out.
If you have an amd system cool, if intel not so much.
Put it this way, interface updates = get another new computer, maybe not.

Hi.
Subject says it all.
I have been on waterfox 20.08 with no real change in my situation.
Things I liked about waterfox, the privacy aspect obviously.

The simple interface, as well as everything else about it.
The things I don’t like about firefox proton in general, all the extra interface tabs, the newer chromium settings is a bit to get used to.
Auto track blocking which has managed to make a few things just not work properly but I am sure I can get past that.
The fact I am dialing home to mozilla but oh well.
Things firefox does that waterfox does not currently.
1. display resilio sync without tinkering with styles.
2. display sites like support.hp.com properly.
3. does not crash while I brouse the net for no reason.
Also it seems that the issues I had with it being stupid with my fan and cpu are gone.
The only thing is that firefox 64 bit currently is not accessible for some reason so I had to use 32 bit.
However it still does work and my system fan does not race.
There has been a choak point when loading a site on gmail but the brouser has recovered.
Sadly noscript while I can use it does not work with some autorefresh things so I have had to do without it but oh well 99.9% of my addons working is better than the crashy crap waterfox has become.
I will miss the drm non add viewing on sites I suppose but oh well what the fuck, sadly I think I am back using mozilla completely.
I’d like to remove pocket and other unneeded features but oh well its not like it matters.
The only issue is when downloading amd drivers I need to initiate a new window to get the file but oh well thats a small price to pay.

Hi.
Well, nothing much this week.
Updates got done, and a few other things.

Not much has happened except network devices go weird access wize sometimes and nvda doesn’t seem to be always syncing my time.
Its not a big issue as I have at least 3 clocks here.
Little else has happened locally.

Data is backed up, etc.
Melbourne has got the indian varient of covid and is locked down for a week.
I suspect the government will lock us down sooner or later either because we get it or because thats what they do.
I have no confidence or trust in the government anymore.
Mum has gotten her covid vax second cycle and looks good.
As for me, when I’m called I’ll step up and get it.
Its unlikely I will get covid as no prospect of travel any time soon.
There are a lot of other things but my immediate concern is status of jobs and the like.
No contracts = no future this year there is a query I need to check but bar that I have nothing really to say except I continue to exist in a world which continues to go down and down.
The us is trying to restart investigation into the leak at a chinese lab, china of course doesn’t want to take responsability but who knows.
I suspect it will come out china made it, then its nuke time and world war3 will start.
Who knows, it probably doesn’t matter much now, I mean there is war all over the place or other warming events.
I guess enjoy the moment, war on the left the greenies on the right saying less livestock, no meat, no fuel at all and the housing.
Maybe we will have life underground soon enough.
Just wish they would hurry up and end the world allready, its a forgone conclusion now, at least I can see the end of the world.
Its going to happen either this year or the next 5 or 10.
Even if not, in 2050 I suspect no one will be ready for the green revolution so there you go.
Locally life continues.
I did updates and backups and a few other things.
A few games got released but really thats about it.

Hi all.
Well its another week.
Updates have happened including windows 21h1.
Well next year no ie, thats ok unless edge fails, I really wish there was an older brouser for example if you needed to use ftp.
I do have flashfxp, but really what this means is for the few ftps I have that I don’t use with waterfox 20.08, I will have to pull manually for others which means instead of doing everything online with older sites I will have to well do it and carry round flash sticks and upload to the cloud stuff I can’t handle.

Luckily thats only 2 things and maybe that won’t be to bad.
I tried adobe reader 64 bit because I have a 64 bit cpu.
It didn’t work when opening files with nvda but who knows I may try again after the next update.
Little else has happened.
Some more alexa jobs have appeard and are in the process of completion.
A final communication came from a book job I did last year.
The guy that did it is publishing what he has because everything is stopped due to covid.
I have had uncle al last week and maybe this week for dinner.
Normal stuff has happened, I may shop with uncle al today or later on who knows all depends if his fake covid goes away.
He has just had the second vaxene and for some of us you get semi flueish things for up to 3 days so fake covid.
I am sure some government drone is cringing right now saying you get fake covid19 after the vaxene but what the fuck else am I supposed to call it.
I mean I could say vaxene induced covid19 I suppose but thats really going to piss someone seriously off.
Some don’t get sick though and its only 1-3 days anyway its a small price to pay.
At least we aren’t at war or in fact locked down.
Anyway, I had lunch with aunt on monday out at glenfield, a pizza and baklava and on tuesday I had coffee and cake at neo in milford which is something I haven’t done for a bit.
On wednesday I had my flue shot then had coffee with fred and a blue berry muffin at the milford cafe which I havn’t done for a bit.
The net traffic is really light and while I don’t mind it I need some serious work soon.
Winter is cold and crappy.
So thats when I work.
When its hot and crappy I don’t want to be inside when there is a party to be had.

Hi all.
Well, I spent part of this week looking at some software for blogging so I don’t have to muck with the wordpress mobile interface which seems to display posts without headings, I don’t care about the gutenberg weird interface wordpress uses now so.
Anyway for the last month or 2 at least wordpress has decided to not accept my 2step authentication when I login.

That is I login, it says a code is being sent but I never get it.
Between 2 or more times later I will then get a code but it takes several tries.
After mucking about with the support system I managed to contact automatic.com directly.
I realise this is the slowest way to probably get support with a subsystem and I guess I could send at wordpress access contact I have on file assuming they still exist as they havn’t been sending things at me for a while.
For now 2step is off, I probably will be disabling wordpress logins on 3rd party sites till this is fixed.
I have no issue with 2step but if it doesn’t send me a code every time or first time I ask for it then its really not that much use.
Today is mother’s day so I am at a loose end.
Its raining and stupid which is good for the water for both power and general water but means that things just semi suck.
Over the last 2 weeks or so since last report I have tried new cafes and done updates and general training.
Today was muther’s day so I went out to a cafe and spent a bunch of cash on breakfast.
The only possible exciting news is that due to old age I needed new glasses.
Updates this wednesday, a haircut and then nothing else.

Hi all.
Well, this is just an update on the statuses of my life.
Firstly, this fucking stupid asus gaming board is spauning doubble typed letters and key presses.
Not sure, I have shaken it, factory reset it, etc, I may have to find out how to clean it or take it to bits or just get another one.
I should do all these things but really to be honest it could also be rsi, surprised I don’t have more of it being a constant user and gamer.
I have managed to sort out my uni stuff which may or may not happen.
Oh a shoutout to any indians because of, well you all know why, I don’t need to rehash the news just saying is all.
Computer updates on vlc, codecs, a new amd chipset module I never saw before which I installed, and a few network and bios updates here.
Icloud has a new update so spent time making it run right.
The interface is semi accessible as long as you can use a mouse to click in the window to bring up the web interface else its really good.
Windows has an optional which is supposed to have news and interests, but I can’t find the button in taskbar for any accounts, it may be a new accounts thing.
At any case I am going to turn it off if it appears, its just another microsoft fuckture I do not need, not feature but fucture.
A fucture is a feature forced on the users that they don’t need.
And a fuckup is a bug created by the manufacture which could break or force a reformat.
Most updates are potential fucture and fuckups.
If its a small fuckup that doesn’t break much or is fixable then its a bug.
If its a fuckup you scream how bad it is to everyone bar whoever made it because it may not be fixed in a timely manner, oh, the fuckups also include microsoft support, still am not forgivving them for screwing up my system 2 years back.
On an interesting note when I pulled my system information it appears that microsoft is silently installing feature experience packs in the background or as part of updates.
Thats fine but I’d like to know or see if there are feature updates, its only a name.
On that note solitare seems to have some accessibility improvements like extra sounds for things and keyboard commands so I guess microsoft gaming gives a fuck about stock card games.
I don’t give a fuck but I don’t ever play these games even those by spoonbil, I just get them because I can and they are free and well.
Not much more has happened.
The only issue was a program update which decided to have facebook messenger starting up all day long on aunt’s system.
Luckily I could turn it off but with universals even if they are set to not run in background that doesn’t stop them from starting and you need to fix that in the app itself.
One thing I will say is that facebook, whatsapp and facebook messenger are accessible out the box to a degree anyway.
So for my aunt its possible for her to do all that on her laptop as well as phone.
I have tried a new cafe called patch today with a lot of exotic food in it like fish and takos, and chillied scrambled eggs.
I have also tried from another place I go to called majestic a caramell and ginger crunch crossover slice.
Took aunt to coffee on monday like I do once every little while.
Jono tomorrow, need to finalise that.
The cruise was quite good, though the hotel food was semi good and not good, dinner was good the rest sucked.

Still there was a large group and I found out various bits of history about my country from things on the maoris basically beating themselves up to interesting things like us almost having a nuke plant.
I also learnt practical things for example I know where our concrete and road gravel comes from and a few other things, and its all in my general area or close to it, stuff like that.
Lunch was big, and bold but yeah it was good.
Going to some jazz thing in july.
I have been training and walking and such.
A recent listen to some documentary on diet says one extra way to lose weight is to work hard and studdy something or in other words engage your mind and just work for long periods.
I may try that a bit more.
I don’t generally challenge myself mentally that much.
Usually its up at dawn, do twitter and blogs, eat food, do email, read news.
Train, muck about with my interests some of which are adult in nature, and maybe play a game.
Put out washing and empty the dishes.
Suddenly its afternoon.
I either walk and fix aunt’s stuff, walk with mum, go out and do stuff, listen to bits and bobs, etc.
Suddenly the day is gone but may not necessarily be filled.
So things for this week include.
Nothing.
I did my ears this week, a week early but they are done.
I have a couple coffee dates at the start of the week, and my usual walk sunday.
Its rare where I don’t have a schedual.
There were some office and other updates so monday will be spent updating various things aunt’s side, but outside of updates and excercise I am unsure exactly what I will be doing.
I need something to challenge myself physically and mentally and more on the mental side.
There are some days or bits of days where my mind feels a bit empty like I should be processing something.
Of course this only lasts the time its like this.
Generally after I get up I need to do all the standard tasks of the day then well.
Anyway thats that for another few weeks I guess.

The next feature update to win10 comes in may, its going to be another small affair which will not have anything much in it.
Later

There are my ears, my teeth, my flue jab and my covid to look forward to.
