What next?

Today I was asked if I had any encouraging words for someone that found themselves in the aftermath of major surgery. The condition was definitely life threatening, the surgery was very much a success. But the individual was left in a delicate situation — feeling very mortal, interrupted, on a slow mend, and seriously asking the question “What next?” Below is my response. Continue reading

Installing Opera 11/17

Because of a glitch in the Livestream system windows users cannot view the archives in firefox nor chrome. I have heard reports that the Microsoft browser Edge will view the archives. Don’t know myself. I never use the Microsoft browser.

I have found that Opera will play the archives just fine.

You can find the Opera browser on opera.com

Here are a few screen shots with comments to hopefully keep you from running into trouble with the install. This is not a complete set of screenshots. I did not include images for each and every step. Just the ones that I thought might be tricky for some. Continue reading

How to Navigate The Information Age

Below you’ll find a list of steps. These are a preview of methods employed in our NotBot Zombiefication Avoidance Program.

Step 0: Abandon Clearly-Defined Long-Term Goals

Because we are currently stuffed in a human-shaped meat suit, we don’t have the equipment needed to access clearly defined Spiritual goals. If, however, you manage to transcend the limitations of the human meat suit, then it is quite possible to access your long-term goals. But, until that time you would do better to work with fuzzy-defined long-term goals. Continue reading

Rumor Has It

Rumor has it that during unsettling times (such as those in which we currently find ourselves) people may be rattled free from their somnambulist sleep and step forth asking the question: “Hey I think I should be doing something, but I’m not quite sure what it is. But, it has to do with something beyond the realm of the mundane.”

If this person asking this earnest question happens to be standing in front of you looking your direction what will you do? Continue reading

The Respect Parameter in Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality

Both VR (Virtual Reality) and AR (Augmented Reality) have the capacity for users to create persistent content. As we move forward along the development cycle it will be only natural for this content to be shared across client software. Thus, allowing one user to view/experience the content created by another user.

This sharing of content across the user-user barrier can either be a wild west circus where everything and anything goes. Or, it will be controlled by a managed system of permissions. Continue reading

Sneaking Up

From time to time we set ourselves a goal that just plain does not come easy.  As an example of goals that people often set for themselves here is a list of Top Ten from 2015

  1. Lose Weight
  2. Getting Organized
  3. Spend Less, Save More
  4. Enjoy Life to the Fullest
  5. Staying Fit and Healthy
  6. Learn Something Exciting
  7. Quit Smoking
  8. Help Others in Their Dreams
  9. Fall in Love
  10. Spend More Time with Family

Looking at this list StatisticsBrain.com one thing that jumps out about this list is: the total lack of action steps. Okay, a few of the above will have fairly easy to create action steps. But, some of the top ten will have very elusive action steps.  In general I would expect a goal with obvious action steps to be easier to deal with. Continue reading

Easy Roller Copper Dice

Bot-Life Roll Playing Safari is getting close to release. This game is looking better and better. If you haven’t seen the Thursday with Xxaxx broadcasts you are probably in the dark about this project. I’ll get into that in another blog post. I want to take a short break from that in order to introduce a truly fine set of multi-side dice.

When playing Bot-Life or any other RPG based game you will need multi-sided dice. Continue reading
