tmo

Went to the rents earlier today. Cleaned windows, packed crates, moved furniture around. The mom is not moving, but she had a lot of stuff that needed to be done before she has the bedroom painted. She is tearing up the old carpeting and replacing that a month from now. Gonna be a lot of busy-body work going on there for the next 30-ish days and I am all too happy to help out.

As for me, I have an appt on Tuesday for therapy + grocery shopping on Monday, and I will tr4y to keep myself busy this weekend with...idk what the hell with. LOL! Reading, probably.

I have yet to complete (write) the conclusion to MMMhub but there is certainly no hurry with that. Though, as soon as I finish that I can move onto the next project until iPadOS is released and I can complete MMMhub. Again, though, no rush. And speaking of the iPad since I spent a healthy chunk of cash on it I am looking forward to buying some other things I need for around the apartment/in life in September such as Chuck Taylor shoes, safety razors, a Zippo and some tobacco. Simple Analytics, too, but that is more or less a recurring expense (similar to this blog (not complaining)). Hell, I NEED some thing for around the apartment. Need to make an investment in the IRL space instead of just they digital space in my life. LOL!

Anyway, be back in a bit!

The weather was 73 degrees around 11 AM this morning so i decided to walk to Cliff Cave Park and enjoy the light breeze. It got a lot hotter by the time I reached the park and more humid, as well. By the time I got home, the walk had taken it ALL out of me and I basically collapsed on my bed and almost hyperventilated. Haha. The only thing I have to show for it (besides possible weight loss) is a sunburn on my face, ears, and neck. Not. Painful sunburn but a lot of redness, nonetheless.

I will not be walking to Cliff Cave again until the weather improves greatly.

Thats all. Be back in a bit!

Everything is accounted for in the September, 2019 #budget and all my finances are in order, everything looks good. Good to go! The monies I will have left over I will use towards Chuck Taylors (low-top, sunflower yellow, dapper), a new case for my Pixel 3a (one that will not be removed and therefore not get worn out), and the tobacco purchase from P&C (nothing too expensive).

I got to thinking about my commitment to #minimalist spending and realized that I do not need the Brydge keyboard at all. The MS Arc Mouse, not needed either (until iPadOS arrives sometime in (probably) late-September). So I decided to nix those things from the budget. For now, anyway. I will probably buy some silver in September, as well. In fact, I know I will. Been a while since I bought some.

Anyway, that is all for now. Be back in a bit!

...a cast of me working on MMMhub (using ScreenCapture (or whatever it is called) on iPad) will be uploaded to YT in due time. I will put it on my YT channel (ugh! That sounds so gross) when I finally assemble the Website (probably on carrd.co). It is going to be a lot of hit and miss, it will take a while, and I am going to add music to it(?), and the comments will be turned OFF on the video when it is uploaded. I call it a cast and not a stream because everything will be recorded/edited before I upload it to YT. But itll be there.

In fact, I just started recording my screen just now so I can see if this file type can be uploaded to YT in the first place.

Keep The Internet Free!

I dont know why I say that when the majority, if not all of my #writing is not bad. In fact I am usually aware when my writing has gone sour because I will delete everything that I have written (even if it is 10K+ words) and start over. Now is probably a bad time to plug my e-book Littered Thoughts linked on https://tomskee.dev, but I am reminded of it because it is the only e-book that is avail from me even though I had written (and published) several in the past. I dont delete them out of self-destruction but out of self-care. I dont want people reading garbage. LT is certainly not garbage.

So anyway, MMMhub I write the conclusion to the project tonight but I am still, of course, unable to make it into the Website it will one day become because I do not have #iPadOS, yet. Soon, though. Soon. The project will be done tonight (the content), just nothing will be designed, thats all.

Speaking of #design ideas, I have a lot for jotttt.co. It is always good to have multiple things going, I find, as long as you are making progress on all of them on the reg. I added another page to the jotttt.co notes in my IdeaBook notebook that I keep offline, and I am pretty excited about the whole thing.

This blog to Tumblr, that is. Why not just write the blog, itself, on Tumblr to begin with you ask? Because readers are on this write.as #blog (to begin with) + If I am #writing something on Tumblrand I lose Internet connection for even a second, Tumblr thinks that is the queue to erase everything and not publish when I hit the button that says Publish. Its great. Its like they were directly confronted with a problem and made a deliberate decision not to solve it. Fuck Tumblr.

But I wanna give Tumblr a second chance, so long as I never have to actually visit the site again. It is synced here. Here to there, that is, so fuck it there it is.

This is basically how I would write out a blog post. Nothing really changes much other than their #content itself and I am writing at whatever pace feels right for me and I write about things I like to help me understand why I like them.

So I am just testing this out

Be back in a bit!

Keeping everything in my photographic archive (or at least the good photographs) on https://pixelfed.social/yok from here on out, so please do find me on there ;) I have removed Instagram from my phone (and it was never avail on iPad) because of the numerous #privacy concerns surrounding their parent co (Facebook) but I hesitate to delete my Instagram account altogether because a very long-distance first cousin and his family are on Instagram and I do not wish to lose contact with them in any way. The rest of the fam are close by and I see them in person several times a year and that is how it is, but, I decided I will only check Instagram every so often in a privacy-centric browser to see the photos of the cousin and his family and....yeah.

More on photography I have a lot of photos to post on pixelfed.social. I also am closing my VSCO account (only several photos on there), not out of privacy concerns, but simply because I see no value in a filter-forward photo service when all of my photos are posted without a filter (usually) as I am using a Pixel 3a that takes excellent shots. What I like about PixelFed is (much like Mastodon) every feature you could want is there. Incl Web publishing. Just...very good.

As for #apps on my phone, they are basically all communicae, and nothing else. Utility apps (task manager, phone, Signal, tethering, camera, LastPass, etc.). In fact, I dont even have a browser on there, opting for the LastPass built-in browser, instead.

Anyway, this is where Im at. Be back in a bit!

Now to move onto section Z on MMMhub. But I am not tackling it just yet. But very soon. Once that is complete....idk, I guess what for iPadOS to come out so I can actually get this ish on the WWW and have it look pretty. I know that I can complete the entire thing Before iPadOS is released because as I mentioned before, I have the whole thing being built-out in Pages, so the elbow grease will be done, I will just have to make it avail on the Internet (in a cool, attractive, pretty way).

I almost feel like I am doing college work but really this whole thing is for myself and for fun, so, that is cool.

Be back in a bit!

Began work (continued it, really) on MMMhub and I am going to be assembling the remainder of what I have in Pages for iPad, and then I will get everything set up and looking pretty on carrd.co with a little help from our trusty friends HTML + CSS. I can only compile everything (with any sense of ease) once iPadOS arrives and I have

A) mouse support

B) desktop-class Safari

Until then everything will be put together in a sort of e-book layout on Pages. I really like Pages I think it looks v sexy.

The method to the madness is: it goes as a sort of non-decluttering method. That is to say instead of looking at all the stuff you have and developing emotional attachments to some (or all) your things, and going from Z to X, eliminate all that shit by going from X to Y to Z and figuring out what you actually,really, truly NEED + WANT + ACTUALLY USE and then evolving from there. Its the easiest method in my eyes.

Anyway, that is all for now. Be back in a bit! #minimalism
