Absent For A Bit ....

I am away for a little while working on a few or more episodes for The Adventures of My Space Alien Alter Ego story ... will return (to Earth) soon!

Notice: Blogger has screwed up and lost a bunch of photos out of my blog! They are replaced with a gray silhouette of a human head. I will eventually get them replaced with the correct photo, it may take a while to find and fix everything. So some of my stories don't make much sense without their photos, sorry for the inconvenience.



My iPadhone & Point 500

I had spent about ten years emailing to a pen pal (a best friend from childhood) with content that I now do on my blog, so this coming July marks 5 years blogging, so altogether roughly 15 years of blog-equivalency.

I am quiet on Facebook for now, discouraged with their interface, eXcept that I check my e-mail twice a week or so. So I am fairly happy with my blog collection of stories. I am at about 500 blog posts in my writing, but that doesn't include my minor blogs which may have about 100 entries for art, cartoons, recipes, game instruction, Portuguese translations of writings, and stories that focus mainly around a photograph, a more visual blog. After being a computer scientist for nearly 32 years, it is phenomenal how far we have come, sitting here typing this on my iPad that I just Skype-ified yesterday.

Thats right, I now have an iPadhone. I use a "simple" iPad with no 3G hardware, combined with a variety of internet routers at home, business, and a portable 3G-4G hotspot. The Skype charges are about 8 to 9 dollars a month, unlimited calling in the US and Canada, as well as free computer-to-computer around the globe.

Good-bye AT&T cell phone.

Frankly, I can't keep up. My porch doubles as a fridge (and sometimes as a freezer) and my humidifier disrespects me on a regular basis.

And to think I used to be considered "smart"...

Pearl: If its any consolation I truly look forward to reading your blog posts. I would tell you that you are my favorite, but then everyone else would get jealous, so it'll be our lil secret. I still do not understand what the word meme means in the blog world and some people think I'm a supergenius, but it just means I have them fooled.

Hi Mr ESB Just thought I would say my old desktop does fine for my blog as I have said elsewhere it does mean when I blog I am always in the same place on the planet. But I am happy with that as I know that I am rotating and moving within the universe at some speed away from the point where I started.

Rob Z T: When anyone asks me if I now any reaLLy fast men, I will send them your way. And if they ask for proof, I will tell them in a loud voice, "The Z stands for Zillion, and he is the King of the RATs!". (That would've been confusing, I accidentally spelled your name Ron because the b is right next to the n on the keyboard, and then if a real Ron would've left a comment while I was typnig this, then HE or SHE if it would've been a Ronda, would have thought that THEY were RAT Royalty, then that would have necessitated a bloody war or not. I hope this does not upset your system during supper. I am off soon for chicken in my fav or ite form.

I wish I knew what you're talking about?

esbboston said...

Friko: Which part? The RATs is an eXclusive club started by your fellow countyman Rob Z Tobor, and he graciously allowed me to join, or should I say I was inducted without my knowledge. He is a wonderfully zany writer from near Wales, I think he used to be in Wales and now lives just outside it, not sure. It may be top secret. There are spies involved, but don't tell anyone.

Pearl: I forgot to tell you earlier that I used the snow in the back of my truck to pre-cool my wife's tomato juice yesterday after groc shopping. The bottle was inside a plastic bag to keep it sanitary.

Rob Z Tobor said...

I do that hit the key next to the key on the keyboard Mr ESM so I understand, although I cant understand why the spell checker cant understand that simple mistake at times.

Thanks for calling me Zany (I think?) and I do live one mile outside Wales now, luckily on the side that is attached to England not the side attached to the sea.

RZT: As you might imagine, "zany" is a highly regarded attribute in My World.
