I do my best writing at 2am

it's quiet then, apart from the computers humming and I wouldn't be writing this if it wasn't then of course it would be very quiet and I'd be sat here in front of a blank screen which of course would be very silly
You know I can't sleep if the computers aren't on ... it's so very quiet I can hear the dog snoring no wait I can hear that anyway, she was barking in her sleep before you know chasing after some dream cat I assume I had to be mean and yelled "wake up" you know because you just have to hehehe she looked up and her face was "huh what??" funny as

I've had my head it in computers the last couple of days we've got a smaller comp that was given to us "goes slow" they said well yeah course it did full of crud poor little thing is all fixed now though anyone want it ? Is ok for word processing can't play games on it though bit small for that only 700meg it will go for about $50 specially if we throw in monitor etc
We keeping the other one (maybe) IF I can get the bloomin thing going motherboard is good but finding a good HD pfft different story plug one in it don't work grrr I'll be making wind chimes out of them soon no kidding I will
We got given a pile of them I call them oysters because only some of them work they've been touched by someone who shall be nameless who don't know what he's doing but only thinks he knows.. how someone can break a brand new 160 gig HD is beyond me
Anyway it's plug one in turn comp on see if that one works, then onto the next and so forth
I've got a pile here that do work (not touched by nameless person) only largest is (don't laugh) 10gig ..shut up I know you laughing at that
Ok smartarse what can I do with lets see now a pile of HD's that are under 10gig and ram sticks that range from 14 to 114 gig ... windchimes right yep yep that's what I recon as well make them into artwork is about the only thing they are good for even though they work don't that annoy me the bigger ones the new ones don't work but the smaller older stuff still works fine typical

Just how hard is it to drill holes in sticks of ram ?? I'm going to be finding out very very soon hehehe

A real Life

Yes I have a real life, yes I write, haven't for a while though there is this big hairy person who lives here who keeps interrupting me which is why this page is called missinterupted good enough reason I suppose anyway ....

Some people are nuts take online games on facebook right, I know this one guy who has multiple accounts about 4 of "himself" and at least 4 of his relatives that he's what could you call it umm "looking after" for them pfft looking after he's playing the games on their accounts thats what he's doing he logs them all in at the same time on different browsers to plow and harvest crops every 4 hours and I mean every four hours as well, no joke he has naps in between seriously this guy has no life at all
I mean look I can understand adding a few extra relatives up and "helping" them set up a game just so you've got neighbors/crew but to play theirs up to a point of madness no joke that's crazy
He obviously hasn't got any friends at all and seriously hasn't got a life
yes I've got a Farm and yes I played slowly like you should do because a game isn't a race there is no reason to race up to the highest level in a game no point in it you go up slowly and enjoy the game this guy goes up 3-4 levels in a day .. one day!!
Besides the slower you go the more pressies you get from others, everyone knows that.
You know what I hope I hope this guy sleeps 8 hours straight and his crops go to waste .. now THAT would be the funniest thing out.
I have a life he don't and I'll be the one laughing at him, he thinks he's good but actually he's not very good at all LoL I hardly play and on at least two games I'm beating him to a crisp and I don't even need naps shoot I don't even put crops in now .. I don't need to why? because I have a life and I'm better than he will ever be

Just a footnote on this same guy and I'll quote him "I don't go on web pages with HTML on them" he said that months ago and I'm still giggling over that one PMSL
Oh yeah it's also against the FB TOS to have multiple accounts but well you know he's not read that (he wont read this either) because yep you guessed it its a web page made with HTML ..oh flip shooot hehehee hahah snort giggle wheeze and fall off chair

Bored with life bored with everything, hearts just not in it...mood swings don't mind me
No though seriously I am bored at loose ends at the moment don't quite know what to do
course it doesn't help being constantly interrupted I can't finish anything because I'm not able to get started on it
That's why I haven't made any Multiply themes lately, I can't think just can not think
most of the time I don't even get five minutes to write a blog up and tutorials no kidding that's why most are worded terribly it's "look at this" or "drive me somewhere" do this for me or do that
If he goes to have a sleep the dog will jump on him or bark, so then I save what I'm half way through and play solitaire because I can't do anything else as soon as I start the nattering starts
he's always done that though I put my hands on the keys and it's "come look at this" he does it so much I just don't bother any more

You know internet folks are my friends, don't have any RL ones don't know any one here in this town and I do get lonely was lonely before of course which is why I started online, I went online to meet people but hardly ever find any that I really get on with the few that I have gotten close too have disappeared on me ...I give up why bother doing anything why bother trying to talk to anyone can't anyway I'm not able to do it ..interrupted all the time
And no one wants to get to know me they are all to busy with their other friends ...I'm boring I know
faded that's me
The new background on here is one of my paintings made into a seamless tile the text is a dark purple on purpose's faded like me

I think I need a make over

Not me well ok I could do with a make over, certainly need a hair cut it's half way down my back... from my head I do not have hair on my back

I mean the blog here it needs a make over course one good thing about it is I can do it all by my widdle self
I did have a 3 column before but for some reason Firefox doesn't let me move modules so went back to a 2 column. no I can't use IE it won't load and I loathe using IE anyway

Now I've seen the snazzy peoples blog pages you know the posh ones that they've paid for those have a light background
I'm thinking of going a lighter colour background here maybe #CEA7D5 (mauve) with a slight pattern effect maybe a little texture not too much just a little with a dark text #42024D
I'm not very good at headers but I think a small purple cow logo would do
Not sure yet
What ever gets done I'll be doing it, not paying for something I can do myself and it will stay like that as well that's why I'm still thinking and not doing don't want to be changing all the time

So I know 24 people read this well ok you get this in a RSS feed, doesn't mean you read possibly because it too difficult to read right
Anyone got any suggestions what would be the best colours for my blog here?
Remember I'm no special blogging entity...... I'm just me
Which leads me to another thing I've got all these snazzy people following me on my twitter and I mean fancy ones top 100 top blogger types following , don't even bother asking me how that happened .... serendipity ??

You Americans are so touchy sometimes

Listen I don't hate you , it's just fun to bag you out, ok you don't know what that word means do you
To "bag out" means make fun of
Like this ...
Americans can't spell it's coloUr and favoUrites you loose the U out of your alphabet or something?

And when exactly are you going to catch up with the rest of the world ?
You are a day behind most of the time and are still on Imperial measurements, what are you still a colony, we were too you know a colony of Britain but went metric 40 plus years ago about slow

As for being big headed it's a joke isn't it that every one in the world should look to the US for troops we have our own thank you very much, don't need looking after, yes some countries are helping you out well that's as you see it anyway they aren't you know the troops from other countries are in Afghanistan for their own reasons not for you. America is rich enough to help itself
Well ok maybe it can't you fixed up where Hurricane Katrina blew down all those houses yet, built new schools and the like fixed that yet?

Don't be asking for help from any other country for that lot either we have our own places to fix up you know.. our troops are kinda busy in East Timor, Solomon Islands and Sudan
Yes I know yours are as well and I know someone will argue but hey that is what a lot of you Americans do you argue it doesn't matter what it is you "think" you are the best at everything

Oh and shut up about your 911's and your president already, we've heard it we know we don't care.
Do you know who the Prime Minister of Australia or England is?
You don't do you, you're so inward focused that you don't even know what goes on in other countries
Did you know Australia was bombed in WW2 ? (Oh I spose I should Google that for you shouldn't I)
Here you go take a look
You didn't did you that's because we don't go on and on and on about things we say it and that's it.

I could say something about guns as well but hey, you've got those we haven't we don't need them we use nails instead

As for American TV shows the ones with the laugh track, you know why those are there don't you
So everyone knows where to laugh WHY because shows like Seinfeld are NOT funny that's why they have a laugh track and a sign that says for the live audience "laugh here" because a lot of Americans don't have any sense of hUmoUr you just can not see a joke when one is pushed into your face
Yes you can be funny...funny to laugh AT

I know one of you is going to go "blah blah waaa" I know you will what you don't think I've talked to non humorous, stubborn, narrow minded and slow Americans before

How to get more followers on twitter by being yourself

I'm confused
Yes always a little confused that's me, no seriously though I'm confused
I'm not that good or fantastic or terrific I am just ME
Not Oprah or some fancy blog journalist/expert I am just me
I do what I do, what I've always done write what I've always written and for some reason a lot of people like it, no idea why
haven't had a Twitter for very long , only really started using it in the last month or so yet I'm ranking high 91/100 no idea how, no idea why
I just don't get it I've now got 129 followers just today 15 #followfriday mentions
Averaging around 10 - 12 new followers a DAY

Yes I will follow back most Australians because I am one, yes I try to converse with people some I'm not sure of yet and they aren't sure of me we have yet to get to know each other and as I'm a bit shy ..paranoid.. non outgoing I'll just feel them for a bit ... not that way you dirty minded people gee

Who needs a fancy programme? I don't seem to need one anyway you know why because I'm myself
I'm not trying, ok sometimes I can be a little trying with the bad jokes ..what do you call a boomerang that doesn't come back? ..... a stick!

All I am is myself that's all I can be, no persona nothing special just myself and I'm getting followed...
You can do it as well, question is can you ?

Don't try so dang hard, don't try to be funny, don't say you are funny in your bio either most who say they are funny aren't @rove1974 is funny but it doesn't say so in his bio and he's like the most popular comedy/talk show TV show host in Australia
He doesn't try ..he just is and apparently is shorter in RL
Same goes for those who say expert of ____ in their bio, yes and I'm an expert of sarcasm too doesn't mean I put sarcasm expert as there are plenty a lot better at it than I am
Have a little humility please, unless you do happen to have a Twitter rank of 100/100 you aren't a twitter/blogging/internet marketing expert , you are just a drip under pressure (spurt)

So how do you get more followers ?
You be YOU , just like me I'm me like me or hate me (no don't hate me I'm nice really)
Be YOU and you'll get them what's that quote from Field of Dreams "build it and they will come"
That's what you do be yourself !

Course if being yourself is sitting there and waiting for folks to come to you well forget it sorry , don't be scared get out there get tweeting we wont bite, well ok maybe the #zombie league will but not much, you won't get anyone to like you or know you by sitting on your hands, use them instead see the bumpy thing with letters on it the keyboard ...use it, use it to be YOU!
And the followers will flood in, I'm serious ok you don't believe me ok then sit there do nothing except auto follow 1000 a day, see how many follow you back they wont you know if you are a hand sitter

I've talked enough, it's 4.30AM because as per the name of this blog I was fleekin interrupted while writing this, anyway you can take notes you can RT this I don't mind .....

Tired but no longer so confused

Social Network Math

Social networks and groups involve math?
Yes they do
Proportions it all comes down to proportions, the more members you have the more items get posted and I'm talking activity count here by the way.

Works anywhere, you have a group with 100 members only %10 of the members actually do anything they are the active ones the rest are lurkers they don't do anything just read
The ones that post comments or new posts is only %10, that's what (I failed math at school)'s 10 which means you need at least 100 in your group, circle what ever you have to get any more than 10 comments per post unless someone double dips, always one who does so we don't count those as 2 only 1
Count by person ok not how many

Count goes up proportionally to the amount you have on your group so say on Twitter you have 500 followers unless you've got some who are very active you'll only get 50 @replies and messages (by person remember)

Or say you have a Blogger or a Wordpress that's got 1000 readers, you'll get 100 replies day
Unfortunately it never does work by post ratio but by day that 100 comment on different posts

Course if you join up on a big fat group on a social network one that's got over 10,000 members ... come on your math is better than mine how many comments and posts is that per day? 1000
Sounds great right get a lot of feedback and activity , no see it backfires
The more active members the more idiots you get you have 1000 active members you'll have at least 10 idiots/flooders and spammers sorry but that's social network math

and this is why here I only ever get 1 or 2 comments as only 20 something people subscribe/read (possibly just subscribe and don't read) this blog

Who am I?

What you thought you knew about me but possibly didn't

Haven't done one of these for a while and there are a few people who don't know me yet, I can take a bit of getting used to
Who am I ?
I'm in my 40's was born in 1966, those without calculators can do that math in your heads
My eyes are green sometimes and sometimes blueish

I love sarcasm, zombie movies which I laugh at and horror movies which I laugh almost all the way through, comedy moves bore me unless they are Australian or English, my sense of humour is attuned that way

My spelling is atrocious but most of the time the spellchecker that I use on Firefox tells me I've spelled something wrong as for it giving me the correct spelling that's anyone's guess
I live with a large Hairy person, a dog both snore and drop hair everywhere and a budgie who keeps telling me TWEET

I don't do Christmas because it's lost it's meaning, I believe in Easter the story is true because it can be proved scientifically but the when can not be, religion is one of my blog dont's I won't talk about religion or politics as they are basically the same thing both patriarchal heieracy preaching to the lower masses
I do believe that at the end of the world everyone will live in harmony and the lion will lay down with the lamb... and the zombie will have more brains than it will ever want

I've got a reasonable IQ but never been tested, self taught typist who learned computers on a 286 I now have IT qualifications
I've not only written the newsletter for the local town I used to live in (pop 600) but did all the copy work, distributing, collating and proof reading (with my spelling that was a laugh typewriters don't have spell checks)

I watch the WWE for the Divas and The Undertaker , yes Divas first ... work that one out yourselves
and I watch Bones for David and the forensic side of things, in fact any show where they dig things up Time Team, Mummies I dig the digging shows

Lets see what else, not online to pick up men got one already besides too many good looking girls out there better looking than I am, I know I've been looking at em.

I can get your head and put it on another body, so you want to be good looking sorry can't fix your face but your body yes can change that ..have to love Adobe Photoshop
I also make Multiply themes using Adobe and CSS won't bother doing them for anywhere else though it's not worth the bother but if you want your Multiply page to look like Blogger (default white) or a Twitter (default blue) I can and have done that

I also write very bad poetry sometimes and every now and then a story or two those are on my other page if you want to read bad poems you can look here Missy's Shorts

If you want to Google me just type in Missy Angel you'll get me, all my identities start with miss
possibly because I'm always missing something, car keys, my brain and words that wont come into my head

Is that enough do you know enough now?
oh one last thing .... I'm female sorry forgot had to look and check

ICE you on the computer again... get off, schaa
good dog
Ice is a 5 year old Stumpy Tail Cattle dog, she knows a few words, one is toy of which her favourite a now non-squeaky rubber shark is almost always in her mouth the newer one which does squeak is up..dang squeak goes right though me

She doesn't like the mower or the guy next door both make noises one she bites the wheels of the other she barks at she'd want to bite his lawn mower wheels if he ever actually mowed his lawn
Ice gets to be inside because of him, he will bang on the fence just to harras her, make her bark and jump the fence only she's never jumped over she just hangs on the top, he does it on purpose so he can say she's attacking him he's that kind of person
We go for (she asleep can I say the W word?) yep asleep , we go for walks every day short ones 1/2 hour or so she's learning to ignore loose dogs and all the other barkers in the street, just calmly walks past them now and they don't bark ..pretty neat that is

The old lady with the mops with legs Maltese I think (the dogs not her) who never has her dogs on a lead we try to avoid at all costs, Ice is learning though to put nose in air and totally ignore the ratty looking things that one day will get run over (the dogs not her) because she as no control over them at all, all over the street they are total pain and she's so snotty as well you'd think they were prize winners they way she talks ugg I don't want those worn tatty mop things anywhere near my dog

sick of the thick

You know some people have the mental capacity of a gnat, don't know if they wear a helmet every day or the just don't think because some just don't think at all
I do a lot of answering questions about CSS it's easy CSS is you want a background that's black you put background-color: #000;
the #(hex color code) of course for black being #000
or you can put background-color: black; which is even easier
Simple right logical, same with a hover effect you get the item in the CSS you want the hover effect on and put :hover after it so say you wanted a hover effect here on Blogger you go into your template find the selector for the part you want a hover effect on
say the header wrapper which is #header-wrapper {
and after the end bracket you put #header-wrapper:hover {
with a change, I'll make this one the background but you can have what ever you like on hover as long as it's different
like this
#header-wrapper {
#header-wrapper:hover {
background-color: #000;
Basically telling the code "oi change when the mouse goes over that part"

Simple easy peasy most selectors in CSS say what they do all it is is using your brain a little and thinking about what it says, not so easy for some they want the hover effect for comments, the hover effect for links and the hover effect for the footer ... it's ALL the same thing!
You can tell one person and the next day there's another asking for hover on something else I even wrote a tutorial on hover effects Hovering or mouse over effects (updated)
and they still don't get it
What can I do it's so frustrating trying to teach those who will not think for themselves are they stupid are they thick or what ?
Don't know how many of you reading this (not a lot of you read this anyway) but how many of you "got" what was above even if you have no clue what CSS is did you understand how I explained :hover ?

Why I won't follow you back on Twitter or any other social network

Twitter kinda reminds me of the favourites feature of Yahoo 360, anyone could follow your updates and you didn't have to even look at their page which in a way was good some you didn't want to see.
Twitter of course is slightly different for one you know who's following you and how many are following, on Multiply you add contacts, on Facebook and Myspace friends
I have the same rules guidelines track what ever you want to call it as I have every where else
I fill my profile out I do stuff and I expect that back

Number #1 rule -- THE most important one
Picture, headshot avatar you have to have one I don't care if it's a pic of a bear just have one anything something, no pic means you are either to lazy or to stupid to put one in there or in the case of a few can't work out how
Either way you have to be a relation or a damn good friend that I know in RL for me to follow you if you don't have one

Right that's #1 out of the way as for the rest lets see
Political are you, US politics ? Sorry no thanks if you bothered reading what it says on my bio you would know I'm Australian and I already have Kevin Rudd on follow (if you don't know who he is you're obviously not Aussie)

Is your entire page in English or some other language?
I speak typo, a spattering of German und French (if I'm in the mood) and Australian anything else can't understand a word of it and if I've got to use a translation service for your page I just wont bother
No I'm not being racist I'm Australian we speak English, Aussie English colour, flavour that kind of English

Self Centered?
Your page is for your own adjenda is it, your Twitter only has links to your blog posts, blog posts that talk about you exclusively and nothing else ? Well unless you are a high ranking celeb like Bill Shatner you can wallow in your self because you by yourself you bore me

Just how old are you anyway? Tweets and status messages that say "drikin iz gggggr8" or " big hugggggs" are reserved for those under 20 , if you are over 20 you went to school before TXT'ing became popular you know all your words and letters use them or get your keyboard fixed your "g" is sticking (or maybe mine is)
Oh and I'm not your mother either I don't have any more than two children, so unless you are naturally blond aged 19 or 21 and over 6 foot tall you ain't one of mine.

Do something
Does your Twitter have less than 5 tweets? Your blog empty? Your status devoid of anything but applications? You realise that you are so boring you bore yourself don't you dang it do you even know what a keyboard is? It's the bumpy thing with letters on it you press them and type words
Obviously you can't type anything or you'd have something there
Yours is empty ? Ok then don't expect me to be interested in you or expect me to type for you I ain't gonna do it (see above NOT your mother)

and lastly spam
Only spam I like comes canned, I don't need viagra I'm not that old yet thank you, I will not buy anything from you either, you can even come to my front door if you like doors shut in your face
Flooders same once is nice, twice is maybe a mistake but three or more of the same is flooding and floods will be sandbagged with a little feature I like to call "block" or ignore and delete , if you are really bad it's called report,
call me at 3am on my home phone with abuse and its called police report!

I might follow you back if, you are funny because I love a laugh sarcasm and sense of humour a must, you have something to say that's not about yourself, I know you or knew you in RL or you stand behind me and twist my arm till I do (stalkers not included)

So there we go , to summarise for those who skim
Fill it out, speak in English, be funny, use sentences, talk about other things than yourself and don't go overboard because no ones going to throw you a life raft in fact I might may even throw rocks at you

now that is called a BIG whoops

You know what I did don't you
I turned off replies on my page here because I had an annoyance who kept flood posting comments anyway I turned them off and forgot to put them back set them as "had to be authorised" or something
You know I've been wondering why no one was commenting on anything
course why no one told me up till now I don't know maybe nothing was worth it .. oh well
anyway comments are now back on not anonymouse comments though because I don't want that nuisance flooding me again

Hey why can I smell bacon cooking when I'm not cooking anything? Ok now that is totally weird

...... gone looking for the source of bacon smell

It don't click with me

You know I've been on Yahoo a long time, used 360 for a long time as well and yes I did notice the cliques on there little gangs that stick together like glue always commenting on each others posts all the time but since joining Multiply I noticed it even more the x360ites are cliquey, mega hugely cliquey
The little circles are completely round no one gets in or out

The cliques flow over into other places of course they do because hardly anyone uses 360 any more, Twitter, MySpace and Facebook always the same gang of people with the same gang of followers/friends/contacts
It doesn't matter how interesting they are it's the same ones over and over "hugs and kisses darling" "nice post" blah blah meaningless dribble in the comment area but because they are part of the clique that dribble is acknowledged anyone who isn't part of the "inner circle" is totally ignored even if it is dribble if you aren't "in" you may as well be out

So that's why with a lot of the old ones from 360 I've stopped following, I wont comment I don't even acknowledge their presence I'm 42 years old this is no school yard it's the internet I'll never meet these people in person, some I'm not interested in meeting in person well one or two I wouldn't mind but most they are so inward with themselves and their friends that they don't peak my interest at all

I say good luck to them really because the same people the same things for years is boring , I'm doing different things I'm meeting (online) different people every day opposite to my RL I am outgoing online the one thing though that I do have in RL and online I can't stand cliques

The more you know about computers the less you want to know

There are a few things I do and a few I don't when it comes to computering
some have a number for reference

I don't
I don't do auto updates, don't let any programme do auto updates except AVG [1]
I don't let windows save my passwords
I don't save History for more than 3 days
I don't save cookies
I don't let some programmes start when windows starts [2]
I don't install toolbars that come included with programme installs[4]
I don't use Internet Explorer[4]
I don't believe every email I see Snopes link or not
I don't blindly click links

I do
Set AVG to scan everyday and do auto updates
I clear all cookies when I close Firefox
Firefox is set to ask me about cookies from sites not just allow everything
I run three, yes three cleaner programmes Crap Cleaner, Window Washer and Powerfull Cookies
I hover over links before I click them to see where they go
Windows Firewall is ON
Remote Assistance and Remote Desktop is OFF [5]
I store files on a separate hard drive to the one Windows is on
I backup regularly onto CD

[1] No I don't do auto updates, they slow your computer down and most times want to re-start when finished I do updates when I want not when the computer says I should, who's operating this thing anyway I am TYVM
[2] Any programme that starts when Windows starts will slow your start up process so Yahoo, CD Burner, the printer and Word should NEVER start when windows starts
[3] A lot of programmes come with extra toolbars, they are not needed or used so I tick the box (or untick it) and do not install them
[4] Internet Explorer does not conform to web standards and has too many leaks, I use Firefox I can block the things that IE lets through
[5] You know how Remote Assistance works don't you? That's someone else getting into your computer if it's on anymone can get in when you aren't looking

So you might think I'm a little paranoid but I know how things work, I know about open ports, tracing cookies, crackers and hackers doesn't mean I can get into yours it means I know how to stop others getting into mine

If you don't know how to set your History or set up anything on any browser or your computer you should know if you are online and that's online on anything including your phone, you should know how to clear History and cookies at least

Beware the evil drop bear

All visitors to Australia be warned
Drop Bears are out and about today

They attack from any tree, dropping on you from height with large teeth bared you may loose face in more ways than one also just might need new undies
Be warned they are loaded with worms, these will burrow inside of you via open sores that the Drop Bear has inflicted
Drop Bear wounds are nasty and will become infected, hideous sores will appear all over your body forcing you to wear loud shirts and white socks to cover the sores

Attractions for Drop Bears : camera clicks including those on mobile phones, the words "Y'all" and "Howdy" and bad pronunciations of "G'day" , loud shirts, large floppy hats and sandals worn with white socks

Species : Bearusdroperus
Related to : Koala, Tasmanian Devil and Trap Door Spider

Drop Bear Repelants::
True there are no sure ways of repelling Drop Bears
Smearing yourself all over and I mean ALL over with Vegemite might work but has not been proven to repel them
Other repellants that may work:: Aerogard large spray can kind not the roll on or unscrented, Carrying a Stobie Pole on your shoulder or driving the Ute on the corro and not spilling the esky

No wonder my ears were burning

Apparently at the boca tweetup (what ever that is) last week my name came up ...scary thought
anyway I'm a "Multiply user who makes graphics and stuff" which is a straight quote from the person who said it (get off I'm not telling who it's a secret)
I'm not sure what kind of stuff I do but yeah I do stuff LoL
Spose if you are going to be talked about for stuff it may as well be good stuff which is what I do ... I do stuff

Is interesting though the things you get to know via Twitter

'computer, Earl Grey"

Hello computer you working
"tap tap"
dang thing seems to be broken
oh well have to make my own I spose
Be good if it did though huh I mean we have half of Star Trek already so why not that
what do we have
Cell/ Mobile phones = communicators
Touch screen computers
Voice activated computers
Auto sliding doors
Girls wearing tiny skirts
We have hollograms
We pay for things with credit
No need to use the bathroom wait we don't have that just wait ok BRB

The last one if you've ever watched any movies at all how many times to they say excuse me and rush off for a P , you see people having showers but they never P
I mean come on everyone has to P sometimes and well the other one if you don't you die (that's the uncrude version btw)


It's rather dark at the moment normally is of course at 5am , nice outside though why am I outside at that time to let the dog out of course
I don't mind outside at night few stars well normally there is but can't see any at the moment it's cloudy means its totally dark except for a few street lights nice soft breeze as well gives me a nice little think time well it would but I've got to keep my eye on the dog can't have anything setting her off and making her bark, one bark and the twit next door is complaining even though she's a ventriliquist most of the time it's not her at all but one of the 20 other dogs that live around here
She's my sounding board she is ears like that shes got to listen can't help it, pick up satelite transmissions on those ears
I talk to the dog, she listens gives me kisses no not on the mouth eww, she don't really care or understand but she listens to the words
Garbage truck!! ..told ya it was early good grief can you be any noisyier
yeah the dog she listens don't talk back either which is good you can say anything you like "guess what dog, you have big ears and you are black, hows the heat what do you think about this ?" and she's there , just there for me well ok unless there is a ball or food involved I've allmost got her full attention which is good I mean someone has to listen don't they and it may as well be her

Course the title of this is said by Capt Picard ... but you knew that

No big fault lines here nothings going to break off and float away no over passes fell down on the cars underneath

If I you see a guy riding in on a pale horse THEN you can worry

All Backed up

What is Computer Backup?
Computer backup is storing copies of your files somewhere other than your hard disk. The reason that we make computer backups is to protect against something happening to damage our files or computer so they are no longer usable. If we have backups of our files, then we can restore these files to our computer through our backups.

What is Involved in Computer Backup?

Computer backups can be made in very different formats. The traditional method of backing up computer files was the floppy disk. However, floppy disks are becoming increasingly obsolete. In fact it is becoming almost impossible to get a new computer that includes such a drive.

Floppy disks can only hold 1.4 megabytes of data, and there are formats which can hold much more.

CD-Rs are CD-ROMs

that you can actually write

onto and hold up to 800 megabytes of storage. You can also use CD-RWs (rewritable disks)
which can be written onto more than once.

DVD burners are also becoming increasingly common, and a typical DVD-R can hold up to 4700 megabytes, or 4.7 gigabytes (a whole BOX full of Floppy Disks!)

The last option is to store your data in another location altogether. Upload the files from your home computer to a online file backup service for safe Multiply or File Den

Set a schedule to backup all of your important files. Say once a month
Make sure are organised and have time, don't try to back up in a rush you may forget to backup something important
Keep your back-ups in a safe place away from environmental hazards, don't let your CD's get wet or leave them in the car or let the dog chew on the CD's and don't stick a Floppy Disk to the fridge with a magnet
In fact try NOT to use Floppy disks at all except for coasters

Even a 4year old can do this..
Get a Burnable CD out of the case a blank one, place it in the CD burner drive, open up your My Documents, grab a hold of the files you want to save with your mouse and drag them into the CD drive and follow the prompt boxes that appear, place the date of back up when it asks you to name the CD.
When it's finished the CD will appear ..the drive drawer will pop out place CD back into case, write on case the date of your back up.
And that is it you are done...till next time

We Are Here

The image there is a screenshot from this map it shows where the fire are which ones are still burning and which ones are under control
As you can see we are miles away even though there are some burning here they are under control but we are still getting the smoke because of the wind it's blowing up from the pole so instead of the smoke trailing out to sea like it was before it's now blowing up here into NSW

The toll might over 130 now but that is just people
I was talking to my Aunt on the phone today had to ring her she lives in the Melbourne outskirts
My aunty shows Newfoundlands (huge hairy black or black and white dogs) and one of the breeders didn't turn up for a show yesterday the breeder lives in Kinglake
This woman has not only lost her home but her dogs and kennels as well

Then there are the native animals the ones that can't get away so fast the koalas and lizards
(no one ever worries about the snakes)
It's not grazing land out there so not so many sheep and cattle but there will be horses and other smaller domestic pets
See it's not just the human lives that are being lost but animals , during Ash Wednesday a lot of sheep where trapped up against fences and unable to get away they were overrun by fire
I wasn't worried about my things when we evacuated only photo albums and my dog, my mothers corgi and our cat all three were secured and in the car before we were
Think I was even more worried about the cat that belonged to the landlord (they moved the cat wouldn't) it was loose wouldn't come near the house because of the dogs it did survive though same as our house because of the apple orchard sprinkler system
Think the worst thing was driving through the actual fire getting away not only the fire but the animals we saw running away as well mainly natives and rabbits
Ash Wednesday was bad but this ..this is worse I lived through Ash Wednesday and today with the smoke haze hanging around I was reminded of it same time of year only over 20 years ago now
The death toll from this one will rise the animals the ones in hospital with burns I know my best friend from High School her father was the last person to die from Ash Wednesday it took months for him to die from his burns it will be the same this time

The smell of smoke is the worst
It reminds me of fear
the fear of being over run of the uncontrollable
of death and devastation
of total black
a midday sun turned red
a totally different world of fear and angst
I hope to never have to live through that ever again

I KNOW I have 17 readers!

Had to change things around because I can't edit anything on the 3 column template
so now it's back on two, yes I know I can do CSS but this is Blogger so it's staying on 2 and the links are blue staying blue they wont change !.
Did get the Twitter widget added so all of 17 people who are subscribed you can now follow me on Twitter (even the PM follows me so ner :P) or follow me on Blogger if you want I know you won't though because you will show as doing so and odds on some of you are being sneaky and don't want me to know who you are so you wont

I'm actually posting this from Blogger for once ...I know shock amaze most times I cross post from Multiply because I'm busy on there if you don't know I make Multiply themes/layouts have been for a while now and no I won't do Blogger templates too hard no way

Question for you

If someone posts "I'm deleting my page" are they doing it for attention or would they actually do it
Me I would just go ahead and do it no fluffing about that would be it gone bye bye
I don't know I think if someone does that thay are waiting for others to comment "oh no please don't leave"
Now of course I want to say something nice to the girl (because I am) but this is in the back of my mind is it B/S or not
Myself I would if I was in the same circumstances as her shut down my page and just leave it I wouldn't delete it besides once it's gone it's gone you can't get it back (unless it's a Facebook) and I've actually left that as a comment why don't you just shut it down instead couldn't think of much else I'm not a "pandering" person

She gives no real reason and there are a few things that make me suspicious but without telling you who it is which I wont (nice person remember) they are difficult to say what they are right here this is going out to only a few of contacts on Multiply but will get cross posted to Blogger well it's an interesting question

What would you do or say if a contact or somone who wote a blog you read said that they were deleting their page ?

Recently in the US a woman had 8 babies (octuplets) she already had 6 which is 14 children all up for those of you who can't count
Now here the Australian government pays out an allowance to those who have children, if it's the father looking after them he gets it
It's on a sliding scale so say you have 2 children under 18 and you or your partner/husband works and earns over a certain amount you get $150 from the government every week
If neither of you work or you are a single mother it can be $300 each child
So she's got 14 kids and lets say the father or fathers what ever the case maybe are not around
if that woman lived here (gets out calculator) she would get $8400 per month
That includes free health care with a long waiting list of course, free or reduced cost medications (capped at $2.50 per prescription )
If she was a drug user FREE needles , diabetic $2 per box ...don't ask why that is I've no idea
Possibly a reduced rent house, nurses for home visits once a week

In the 80's Bob Hawke promised that no child would live in poverty and they don't
Course recently everyone with children and old age pensioners got a bonus carers got $1000 per child under 18 the oldies got the same , the unemployed did not get a single cent which is fair
This windfall was the government saying hey we have a recession here is some money that we have lying around you can have it
But they gave it out in a lump sum and of course a lot spent it in the first week on booze and drugs, saw a few new laptops as well as Mp3 players and new mobile phones that kind of thing ...and the kids well you know they went to school in old torn clothes
That's what people do, you give them $1000 they gunna spend it aren't they not on paying bills but on things!
I think though if the government is going to give out money it should be to the people not businesses it's the people who buy the products and without money to spend on products your business goes down the gurgler
So who's got the right idea here not the US that's for sure

Susan talks warts

We all have them you know something that we don't like about ourselves or others
click this ---> One Wart

Me I used to be fat ok not humongous fat but put it this way now size 12 then size 16
Aussie clothes being something like this 6(US) = 12(AU) and 16(US) = 12(AU) I think more or less that kind of conversion anyway
still that's a few dress sizes I swim in the old pair of jeans I still own not get wet in the pool swim( I don't swim get wet swim) I mean pull them out from the waistband kind of swim and they used to be tight!
down from 90 to 62kgs
Am I happy being thinner than I was, looking the same size as I did when I was 17 when I never even went near a scale when I looked good in photos except that was the 80's no one looked good then had big hair for a start, wait I still have a lot of hair more than I had when I was bigger, my hair weighs a lot which is good I need those extra kilos
See I'm too thin now no energy I survive on chocolate (doesn't everyone) except I have low BP and low blood sugar
never was a popular person don't want to be either
Here is me I'm 12 years old grade 7 wasn't even in High School and I'm 5'8 , have this pic taken then three of my friends on the left and me on the right to fit it in my purse it's cut in half put the halves together I'm a full 2 foot taller than they are, ok so they grew well two did Sally didn't she stayed short can't help that she never grew but the other two did eventually
I was always the odd one out, in High School where the boys outnumbered the girls 7-1 I was the non-girly girl I did welding without screaming worked in the chook shed at lunch time they didn't they sat and giggled and gossiped and giggled some more ..odd one out again I don't giggle never did
I could outwork the men on the farm but never did learn to ride a motorbike you try rounding up sheep using a tractor now that IS tricky

I'm tall too tall, I'm skinny too skinny my hair is too long I need a hair cut and I'm a listener not a joiner and defiantly not a giggler
Those are my warts or my wart by itself is that I sit outside of the circle to afraid to join in and that is the truth even if I am in the middle of the circle I still fell like I'm on the outside bit like being turned inside out , which is why I do come across as standoffish and aloof sometimes I don't like being "in" I'm so used to being "out" it's bending down all the time that does it you know from being so tall it makes my head spin
I wish I was outgoing but I'm not I scare too many away because I don't know how to giggle

What is this big bowl thing?

It's something to do with American football finals but for some reason instead of having one single final with a big cup and prizes there seems to be lots and lots of them and never seems to be a winner, not that I've noticed anyway.

Lets see I know they have adds on it and a lot of people watch those which seens strange to me, if the adds are more interesting than the programme on the TV must be a boring TV programme, well yes of course it is I would be bored as well looking at a big bowl on the TV
Everyone gets to sit around the TV drink beer and eat chips well you can do that any day of the week

I know the players get a snazzy huge ring at the end of the game in fact the coach, the towel boy, the guy with the esky full of drink he gets one everyone who is on the team gets one from what I've seen these are only usefull for police investgations ... if its on NCIS or Law and Order it must be true

Ok what else do I know umm yes well it's American football so it's the padded kind the players not the ball not saying the players are fat but they sure look fat like to see one of them play here they would collapse and they are so used to wearing padding one teeny bump and they would be a crying mess just like a soccer player.

The ball is shaped like a bullet so it flys from one side of the square field to the other and fits neatly under Forrest Gumps arm so he can run with it and the players say "hut hut" a lot no idea what that means either

So yes lets see
Today you watch a big bowl on the TV you watch the TV adds more than the actual prgramme you eat chips and drink beer and watch TV ... honestly you Americans are strange would today be a good day to invade your country or should we hang off till November when you are all trippy on turkey?

Disclaimer:: I know exactly what it is ..I'm teasing the Americans, so anyone who gets offended didn't read properly
