Another week

Hi all.
Its another week closer to christmas, my presents are all brought and on the way.
Some delayed, still waiting for that last contract but even so.
Work is done, saw a cousin last night at grandpas, nothing much.
We have a new fridge and freezer and will be moving the old one to my aunt and removing a bench and other junk to another place this saturday.
Computer wise not much has happened, but that ms said that someone had hacked in forcing me to have to change.
I changed all the older passwords I had to well more secure ones.
That in itself was a good wake up call, however this does bring up the issue of the widely ms account, if my ms account didn’t work on my windows 10 device I’d be locked out till I did a full reformat, and its why I don’t care to use an ms account on my devices in case something screws up like this.
Sure I could change the password and I guess I would be able to do that but I wouldn’t be able to access my email to to varify the password had been changed and etc, etc.
One way is to have a local and ms account but if I am going to have a local that makes the ms account fucking useless really.
You need the ms account for onedrive, universal apps and windows store access.
You also need it for cortana.
If you like me are a traditional desktop board user you can avoid ever having one.
I do use it for skype and a few other things but still.
anyway laters.

another monthly something

Hi all.
Another generic title for another generic post.
After what seems ages and ages I get some free ish time.
Why do I say ish?
What about red rising, all those new books, gamebooks and the like.
Now you have finnished everything its time to catch up on things.
Here is the thing, I need to catch up on things but also catch up on other things to.
things I really need to do is continue testing for nasoft though I havn’t found any other bugs in their game.
Sonnar has got the campaign to 8800.
I am a moderator of the audiogamehub forum and have removed a lot of spams and banned users on the forum.
My first accease contract is done, for whatever reason the client wanted it done a couple weeks earlier than expected which in a sence is good I have no time this week end to even work so yeah thats done one more left.
Look at last entry for what is happening for last weekend.
This week, win7 review updates for non security and dotnet, firefox 50 or should I say firefucks 50.0 is out.
The address bar is just totally fucked to hell, I can work round it but I just hope it doesn’t get any worse.
In other news ccleaner codecguide, and a few other programs are updated.
Microsoft released bits and bobs, I also removed stuff not needed from computers and updated configurations.
You know its probably time to update all my friends for the traditional christmas email.
On a more depressing note I need to chace up one company which is not doing much, which I invested in almost a year ago.
They are fast entering the dangerzone where they exist in my portfolio as a footnote.
The investment aint large, but I did that in order to get them to produce things.
I do hope things work out.
On another note dropbox appears to have some crash with its updater as it doesn’t exit when I tell it to bring up the right click menu and have to kill it manually but when I bring up again it works
Oh well maybe more in december.

another update

Hi.
Its been ages since I did a personal update.
So what has happened betwene now to when hmmm.
I think I will work backwards.
As you know just gone has been my sonnar gamefest which has ended raising up questions on agnet which has kept me busy.
More tests were done for nasoft and I got and completed a contract/ servey for able the guys that handle tvs and description.
I can’t remember exactly when half of these went.
But the week end in ahipara was good if only a bit cold, we walked and chatted a lot I remember that and played the train game which is a variation on domonoes.
The week after that we vissited a friend in oriwa a little place outside auckland and looked round.
Bar all the storms and such little else of value has happened.
We have had a couple clear days and I have got more music, books, games, etc, etc.
I have started sorting out christmas stuff in a small way to.
Notification of the acease contracts came last night sonnar has their kickstarter coming on the 9th less than a week now.
I am getting tired of the changing weather, right now its really cold and I am in shorts the only consolation is that the days are clear and I feel the sun.
Update wize, codecguide has released their updates, and lots of flash and other updates came out.
Boring stuff like that.
Net wize not much has happened.
Family wise not much has happened worth writing about.
Dad is taking cooking courses for the old and so has been cooking a lot of stuff.
Salads, especially bean salad is one of my favourite thing things of all time ahead of chick peas, curry, chicken any style and roast pork and lamb though they all could be the same.
The only thing I’d take any day over all of those is roast salmon, oh well fuck it, roast anything is good I am half english.
Bangers and mash is also good when I can get it.
And thats it for another week or month or year.
In the next while, the last release of nvda comes out.
There is one play, a party and the 2 tests, but after that its role on summer.
Due to the fact it hasn’t heated up fully yet, I will leave contracts open till christmas, january to march are the killer months though once people are back at work again, it won’t matter much I guess.
later

sonnar update

Hi all prospective audio gamers out there.
Well its been a long long time since a news update.
Before we start, this post is going out to many locations at once.
A few of you may have got shorter posts about whats going on depending on your position on the net and so on.
I know at least 1 or 2 others will get a taylered post asking for something.
With this out of the way.
1. Kickstarter.
Its no secret we need at least 5000 dollars to 50000 dollars of funding.
5000 is minimal for 5 extra games plus another one which will be a full on rpg and which you need to buy.
Right now its not finalised but I will get more info when that comes on stream and thats coming soon.

2. descussion group.
the link to join is
https://groups.io/g/sonnargames
This will discuss everything related to sonnar interactive I think thats what it is or it may be sonnar, I forget.
There is a news feed at sonnar.nz
It is currently offline but should be up tomorrow.
Also there is a forum on audiogamehub.com which all users are encouraged to join to post issues on etc currently looking for moderators.
The descussion group is also looking for moderators.
Email me sm dot everiss at gmail dot com for info.
Sadly I can’t just put my email as a propper address or I’d get spammed to death!
3. completion of the hub.
After a month the compaign will be closed off and attempted completion should be finnished on feburary some time.
Several new projects are happening in the rpg and adventure airieas.
I can’t tell our secret formula but I do know that one is a roguelike rpg audio with pictorials for sighted people.
I will continue to update all of you when more news comes in.
Oh and before I go, please keep donating and sending fan mail we appreciate it greatly.

Another week

Hi all.
Its yet the beginning of yet another week of things.
This time not much to report.
The only thing that happened bar a few windows updates and a security post I put on the other blog about twblue was that google chrome decided to update itself and my dad didn’t realise this and shut it down causing the system to just sit and not do something till it was turned off.
On reboot, I restarted google chrome which promptly updated itself and after 5 minutes restarted again.
Over that I have 2 more beta contracts from accease this time not foundation access, for later in november.
I went to my brother’s party in a local italian joint where I had salmon and potatoe salad, garlic bread and cheesecake as well as a birthday cake.
I had roast pork yesterday and soup as usual being it is sunday and such.
Its been raining all day, every day and loads of storms are abound.
Final prep has been taken for the big trip to ahipara on friday.
No net, no twitter, no mail, no training, for 3 days, just the beach, sea, bush and a nice house.
I just hope it doesn’t fucking rain is all else all I can do is sit on my bunk and do fuck all.
I have got a bit more music this week one digital and one disk by shawn mendes who seems quite good on review.
In fact over last month I have spent a fortune on music most digital, megan trainer, elly goulding, twentyone pilots and a few things.
Sorted out a new toothbrush to.
laters all.

my interesting weekend

Hi.
Dispite the last post you just read I actually had an interesting weekend.
Friday was shopping day followed by a japanese lunch in which I had a curry with lots of chicken.
Then I met with a friend for coffee had to get a cake in the end, man those wimmen talk! I didn’t have anything initially but as it was 3.30 and they had no show of stopping I had something and finally at 4.30 they stopped.
Next yesterday, after training it poured down but had some saveries and salad in a local caffee well the local robert harris I guess thats local, and talked to another friend.
Finally today I went to grandpa for lunch in which I consumed a chunk of a good ol lamb rack.
Things were not as smooth bar the office stuff I have just delt with I got a message from my test team, about my cash bouncing, I was missing a suffix so I had to find and resend.
I also messed my address on some stuff and had to resend that.
Lets hope nothing goes this week.

And it continues

Hi all.
This is an extention to the weeks total muther fucking totally bastardised fucked up fucking shitty fucking bull shit that I have had the misfortune to deal with.
The other workstation was reported to me by its user saying it couldn’t open files.
This has happened before and I doodled with it a little but still couldn’t get it working.
I suspect one of the last 2 update packages went a bit loopy.
So what to do.
First tried to fix the associations in program defaults and they didn’t.
Next go to programs and features, thank jesus we have still a controlpanel in windows 10.
Anyway select ms office pro 2016 right click choose change and wait about 5 minutes for it to start.
Select online repair.
Tap the next button a couple times wait 30 minutes.
hit close.
run word, al f d for account, select update, then update again.
go back to word control w to close all files in word if anything open, then alt f4.
Wait 5 minutes, the package loads.
Check mail, it processes well.
Check if the issues I have had with excell and word still work and they do.
No idea why they screwed but at least thats fixed.
However office is not activated and needs a key.
I just hope once I find and enter that that it works.
