When you tell people, you get one of two reactions. Some people don’t seem that surprised because they, or their sister, or father, or aunty, or a friend had cancer and they’re ok now, or still suffer or they died. It seems as if every other person you talk to has been affected in some serious way by cancer. The other reaction you get, from the people unaffected, is a shocked response. Shocked because I look healthy, you’d never guess, I’m so young, etc. I never like leaving people with an awkward feeling and I really am one of the lucky ones.
Big blur Fortunately I have good enough eye sight that I can read the time on my alarm clock without needing my glasses. However, if you do, how do you see what time it is at 3am in the morning? Does your clock look like this at 3:24am?
If you visited badum-tish.com, thanks! I don't know why I created the site, well it was a mad whim. The whole thing was put together in about an hour.
Why I bought this... I have a DVD player, but that requires me to get up and put a disk in the player. It’s like the dark ages before the TV remote was invented and you had to get out of the chair to change channel. Back then it didn’t matter because there were only 3 channels, but once we had the remote there was no going back. My time is precious and if I have 10 minutes to spare I don’t want to waste 4 of those minutes trying to find the right DVD and then the empty box for the disc that was in the player and waiting then for the drawer to open and read the disc and watch the FBI warning and then the … oh come on! I want to watch it now! Of course you could argue that obtaining written permission of the original copyright owner of the DVD you’ve “backed-up” to the drive takes much longer. The documentation points out; “It may be a criminal offense under applicable copyright laws to make unauthorized copies of copyright protected material” a notice which I would echo myself. You wouldn’t steal a Policeman’s hat now would you?
We all know that people are good. I’m good, you’re good, we’re all good people. But what about those scary random strangers on the internet...are they good people?
I really like Facebook. It’s a great website for connecting with friends and sharing pictures and stories. As a simple unobtrusive “information pull” site it allows many non-technical people to have a presence on the web. Twitter is not for the masses and blogging is a whole different ball game. And don’t forget that Facebook is free!
