So my lovely-young-bride of 34+ years is finding out. Not that sheâ€™ll ever get â€œold.â€ To me at least. She walked into another room while I was talking then complained she couldnâ€™t hear me.Welcome to My World.
Forgot that I was a member (in good standing) on the Steam platform. Was weeding out my logins and passwords yesterday and found the entry. Hey, didnâ€™t I pay for a few â€œgamesâ€ on that? Yes. Yes I did.
So I logged on using this ACEPC mini-computer and installed â€œUniverse Sandbox,â€ a Universe sim, and spent a couple of hours lobbing meteorâ€™s at Earth. Cool! Got a â€œnot enough video memory so will be running in lower graphics modeâ€ error; but it worked just fine and really looked good. You could see each explosion from each meteor (if theyâ€™re big enough. The meteor, not the explosion. Nevermind.).
Then I set it to downloading and installing MSFS X (10.8 GIG!). Took all night but finished up about 0800. Installed and runs nice. Graphics look over 10 years old(which they are) but it runs pretty smooth. X-Plane 10 is next!
That I barely believe the â€œNewsâ€ anymore is well known and I tend to research stories through multiple sources before making up my mind. So, this morning I was reading an article about Cheryl Ladd complaining about always having to wear bikiniâ€™s for Charlieâ€™s Angels. So I searched â€œCheryl Ladd Tiny Bikini.â€ When SWMBO saw my screen it was tough getting her to believe I was researching every possible angle of the story to get to the truth of the matter.
Gee, what a rough life.
In my efforts to make my life easier I quit Social Media (FB, Thumblr, GAB, etc). Now Iâ€™m in a quandary of what to do with olddocking.us. I originally set it up for my family to upload and display their old family pics. They arenâ€™t interested. Not sure if I want to continue it or just rely on Google Photos; where you can keep your originals free. Easier to share too. I just donâ€™t know. Every time I mention getting rid of stanking.org SWMBO goes â€˜But, mah mail!.â€
WHO released new figures recently. Seems approximately 750 million folks World Wide got the Covid. Approximately 1 million died from it. Thatâ€™s 0.13%. Same as the seasonal flu. Democrats fooked us over for the flu. Are yâ€™all paying attention yet?
I swear. When I see people outside walking along by themselves and theyâ€™ve got a mask on, I really want to stop and bitch slap some sense into them. Not that it would do any good. I saw a guy peddling his bicycle the other day with a mask on. Dipshit.
I like to show folks in Walmart just how good their masks are with an â€œOld Guy Fartâ€ when I walk by them. If you canâ€™t smell that, youâ€™ve got a good mask on.
