Diary 2nd November 2015

My normal TV special day whereby I stay up. Checking my coupla hundred notifications on FB, that I had stored on the computer. However as November was the month I was starting the UPDATING of Computer programs, Apps on Cell Phones etc., and December being the Operating System Upgrade to WIndows 10 on Lappy, Android Lollipop on Sammy 2, and Lumy will get Windows Phone 10 eventually towards the end of November.

So I started the Sammy 2’s Apps Updates, of which went quite well. hahhaah. Then while checking one of the notifications, I got a comment from a friend of a friend on FB, saying he feels sorry for the guy who was asking what is a Zip Tie which was me of course. The friend of the friend said he felt for me. Perhaps cause of my stupidity or whatever, or the fact that I ain’t from the US. hahah.

Diary 9th October 2015

Today I got up with a view of doing a few errands. hehehe.

Following is what my intention to do today.

An Post

Lidl

Meteor

I then set about doing the above errands. Firstly was to withdraw €30 for tomorrow to buy the Vegan TShirt. I need €20 for the TShirt and the €10 for the food etc.,

So then onwards to Lidl for to get Oil mainly, however the 5L isn’t available anymore. So I got the next best thing the 2L. hehehe. I also discovered that the Bolognese ie Tomato Sauce is actually Vegan. So I was so happy. The tomato Sauce I bought in SmallChange is very bland. Just adding water wouldn’t even help. hahaha. So I said why not.

Then I headed to Meteor, that I ask if I’m able to get an Upgrade. Imagine only after a few months. hahaah. When I arrived, there was a quiet, not too bad. So I joined. While waiting there was a foreign possibly Pakistan or somewhere in the Oriental Continent, THere was a lad being served, I over heard him saying yeah I “can register online”, something like that. Now the sales assistant did not hear him or not understand him, I not sure. There were several thoughts, going through me mind. I was getting frustrated to the point that I would exit out in frustration fearing that he wouldn’t understand me. BUt as it happens, it wasn’t too bad to a certain respects. He kept asking the lad beside him, for assistant. So perhaps it could have been his first day. You’d never know. When I was next, he asked for my Name and number and other ID specs such as my Address n DOB. He was very soft spoken. So when the other sales person saw I was getting impatient, he told me I’d have to wait til next 19th Oct ie 10 days. So I quickly asked if they sell Windows Phones. So they told me where to go. So I then looked at one of the phones and thought, it might be time for me to change over to Windows OS. I’ll have to make up my mind in the meantime cause I am fed up waiting for Android Updates ie Software Updates. Like Google announces a beautiful OS everytime, I look forward but instead I am tearing my hair out waiting and waiting. Like I think we get it about a year or so after the announcement. Apple get their updates almost immediately. Now I can obviously understand with the different Manufacturers, and their crapware aka known as etc., but a YEAR???. I’m not sure exactly thou how long Windows Phone users’ Updates takes to get to their phones. I’m sure it ain’t as long as a year thou. We can only leave in hope. hahha

So anyways after that, I then headed to the folks to mainly to hand over the letter from the Citizenship I received the other day and the shopping bag, I got from the groceries that my folks got me. heeheh.

WHile looking at the news there was an advert for a documentary of Rugbys guys in a wheelchair, whereby they try and put their shoes in the shoes of a Wheelchair user. Donnacha O’ Callaghan, was one such user and while trying to get up a kerb or something, his wheelchair went back ALMOST hitting his head off the concrete. Well the shock I got, my heart says I.

Diary 20th September 2015

Not bad a day huh. More so not that busy. hahaahah. I got up with a view of seeing my sis as per our usual schedule. heheheh. I then transferred a few Golden Girls episodes for my sis to watch together.

I then headed to see her. We had a few cups of tea of which mine consists of Tea, Black Tea, Coffee and then Green Tea and whilest having the teas the chats and plenny of Golden Girls. hahaah. Was most enjoyable.

I brought along my old cell phone aka Sammy. I had charged it overnight. I have decided that I use it for GPS reasons, ie when I want to use it for Fitness Apps etc., or for finding my way around the city. As my current Sammy 2, doesn’t seam to last battery wise. So I was looking at it, bringing plenny of memories of it. hahaah. I will be Rooting it for the first time. Before that thou, I wanna record the apps that I have on it thou. heheeh

I then was uploading my babes: Inflatables to the following Social Media Accounts. hahaha.

As part of my email ritual, one of them was an article on MakeTechEasier. There was a poll which asked: Should Microsoft kill Windows XP and Be Put out of its Misery. Surprisingly 70% wanted it kept. hahhha. It goes to show you, OLDies like myself love old OSs. I remember the days of Windows 95, more so my fave was Windows 98. Then along came Windows XP. I didn’t really like WIndows Vista. Windows 7 was lovely. Then Windows 8, which appeared on my Dell Lappy, until Dell ripped me off last year, when they refused to help me out on Support. Following are the results of the poll

Last week Facebook announced that its to enable an “emptathy” style button as qouoted from Zuckerburg. As Zuckerburg describes if anyone psots an upsetting post, such as a death etc., etc., or a Natural Disaster, Facebook is to introduce a button wherey Users will be able to agree with the post in question. So e.g if someone dies, you wouldn’t acutally “Like” the post. So Facebook will be sorting this out. Following is a poll carried out on the Facebook button.

Q. What do you think of Facebook’s planned “Dislike” button?

  • A “Dislike” button is something I’ve been wanting for awhile. (40%, 40 Votes)(I voted for this option)
  • I don’t use Facebook, so it doesn’t affect me.(33%)
  • This change will only bring confusion to something that works well. (13%)
  • It will turn out like Reddit no matter what they say. (10%)
  • It won’t change the way Facebook works. (3%)

    Total Voters: 99

Diary 17th August 2015

Well today was a quiet day. I was looking at Dallas as per my usual regeme. hahaah and of course Golden Girls and the Transporter Series. (1,(Review here),2,(Review here), 3,(Review here)). I only realised a few days ago, that I had never posted Hop, I saw last week. However the reason being is I never said so in my Blog post. ahahha. Anyways here’s the review of Hop. So I’ve been reorganizing all my Facebook pages in terms of Notifications. At one stage I use to get notified of Every Group, EVERY person I was close to on FB etc., and Pages as well. But it was time consuming and I wasn’t getting round to other FB accounts which meant I was getting larger and larger volumes. So from now on I won’t have to worry about FB getting large volumes as it’ll be smaller. So I’m in the process of creating a bookmarking system. That way, I won’t be loosing CLOSE friends, by FB disconnecting the friendship or they themselves doing it.

While downloading updates yesterday and continued onto today, I ran out of space on BOTH the Local Storage and SD Storage on Sammy 2. SO I took out SD and put into Lappy. And imported my pics there. Then I Transferred from Local Storage to SD, and bingo, Bob’s your uncle, as they say. Once I update all my apps, I am seriously considering updating my apps automatically. Cause they are taking far too long once a month. However the apps that I use quite frequently will NOT be updated,unless I see the Changelog in the versions.

So I went to Mom n Dad’s. First welcomed them home. Dad wanted his pics off his camera printed off well some of em, anyways. hehehe. Mom wanted a pic of her phone printed off.

So then I headed back to my place, and my sis was down there downloading. We had a great laughter at comedy. So then afterwards, I headed back to her place. Chatted further. We spent a few mins to an hour reconfiguring my finance for the week and more so for the coming weeks. There has been an increase in my Bank income, and more or elss the same income for myself.
