tech issues, and life issues

Hello all!

I’m am still on my quest to test linux operating systems. I downloaded and installed two new OSs: Fedora 20 and Linux Mint 16. Regrettably I lost my windows XP with the Fedora install… It wasn’t showing the drive correctly and I thought I “knew” what I was doing. Note to all: backup data before trying! I take it as a blessing, although I lost many files. The memory was running low on my C: drive and I tried to create another partition to give it more space. I wasn’t allowed to as Windows XP can’t do it by default. I tried to used a linux operating system to make the C: drive bigger, but to no avail… So that means I have to move forward with Linux. The one thing I truly enjoy is that it’s open source and the programs are free! I remember even when I was younger I had a strong distaste in my mouth for windows products since one would be forced to upgrade or be faced with an obsolete product. I like free products, and I want to be able to give out free products as well in the future.

I’m officially getting SNAP now. I don’t know how it works as I given two different versions regarding the benefits (regarding how often I would be getting the benefits). In due time, GOD allowing I’ll know. So how does one continue a business when I’m stuck in a “Back to Work” program from 9-5? This hinders plans… I guess I would have to show them I have financial backing in order to be exempt from the program. I also was served with another eviction notice. I feel like a lawyer now I’m in court so much! Maybe I should study law. I have a new avenue regarding the business, and I’m excited yet I don’t know how to proceed. I need funding (as usual), but like the free operating systems, I have to find ways to get the resources and materials I need to make maquettes (small versions of the product). The product is a modification of sorts to bicycles. I can’t give any more information than that as I wouldn’t want someone to try to run off with my idea. Till it’s patented, no pics… :-(. I plan on putting it on kickstarter since I tried another crowdfunding website (I can’t even remember the name of it at the moment…) and I got nowhere. I mean I did get some funding, but it was from “family and friends”. I thought I would get donations from total strangers. I guess my staffing agency idea wasn’t the best. I believe I should be donations from strangers on my bike mod idea. I’ll give a hint: a bike where you can be protected from the elements! How does that sound?

Back to the linux operating systems: I am testing them out to see which would be best for public use. I appreciate Lubuntu 13.10 (which I’m currently using) and Slitaz as the latter allowed me to partition my former windows xp laptop. Remember that Apple uses a linux/unix based operating system, and android does as well. Much respect to Bill Gates as Microsoft is still in the game (albeit their operating systems tend to get worse and worse as they progress: does anyone understand why windows looks like a mobile phone and a desktop?) I believe the computer parts companies are in cahoots with Apple and Microsoft. I have an operating system (Lucid Puppy) that works with my not up-to-today’s standards netbook. It has a single core processor and 2GB of ram and would embarrass those with more specs on their laptops and perhaps tablets!

If anyone wants a new operating system on their tablet, let me know. I don’t mind installing heheheh…

My quote of the week: Humble yourself so that you can be exalted and state the obvious.
 

 

 

Hanging in there…

Hello all.

I went to eviction court yesterday, and guess what? I was given time to pay (in full) the rent I owe! Sounds great, doesn’t it? I met with the building’s lawyer prior to the meeting with the judge. I guess he was just doing his job as he asked me “Do you have the money for the rent?” I looked at him incredulously and shook my head no. So, that means more time and more work! I got to get this business running fast! 

For the tech aspect of things (as my blog is called livinginnyand”it”), it appears I may have to learn programming a little faster than I wanted to. I wanted to enter the IT game with basic computer/network support. But those are my plans, and my plans usually come to nothing. That’s the frustrating thing, when you think that you have a brilliant plan and it can’t or just doesn’t come to fruition. Can anyone relate?

Since I have about 20 followers (yay!) I want to leave with you with a thought of the week:

“People may plan all kinds of things, but the Lord’s will is going to be done.”
 
I am personally experiencing that, and therefore I want to encourage you with that. If you can prove to me different, then let me know your secret hehehe… 
 
PS. You may be asking, why would the Lord’s will be done and not mine? Without opening a can of worms, if what you plan happens, then GOD allowed for it to happen. It’s humbling, especially in my life. If it was up to me, I would be making over 100 grand a year and living in some backwoods in Pennsylvania…
 

Days go by…

Where do I start? It’s been a few days since I’ve posted. Please note this post is from my smartphone. My netbook’s hard drive failed because of my frustration. I even opened up the hard drive to see if I could fix it! I have another hard drive from a PS3, but it only has 40gb. I was thinking of getting a Linux OS to install on the netbook… i played at a chess club last night and tried to download the file, but wasnt able to finish the download. I paused the download thinking I could download somewhere else… didn’t happens. I lost the chess game by giving. My opponent a piece like a patzer… i arrived late to the game because my old lady forgot i play chess on Tuesday nights…

To add insult to injury, i got a quasi eviction notice! I was told i had 3 days to pay or i would be evicted. They have to give me official documents for that to happen. Well, now my blog is official as I’m livinginnyandit hehhh. I don’t like these negative weeks, but thank GOD for them. It helps me to remember what’s important: Life.
