Pinky Lives!

Technology is weird sometimes. Pinky, my Dell laptop, died last on February 15th due to the clock battery coming off and the clock battery being dead. A couple of months later, I took out the hard drive to some files to Celty, my Acer.

Fast forward a year later to this past Saturday.

I had planned to try and recycle Pinky for some cash in my local recycling place. Instinct told me to turn it on to see it still was broken. When I pressed the button, it booted up and asked for a diagnostics test. I accepted and it didn’t find anything wrong. Then suddenly, Pinky started working again. At first, it was around midnight with the date that it stopped working. But then, the time and date automatically caught up. After some updates to the computer and some of the apps up there, I was all caught up again. I get rid of some apps that I shouldn’t have on that laptop. I even changed the wallpaper and lock screen. I got the mouse working too. I think Pinky started working again before I took out the hard drive, put it back in, and didn’t mess with it for about a year. I don’t know. Technology can be weird like that sometimes.

The only problem is that the files on there are out of date. I did get my Sims game up to date on Pinky. (I will have to update Origin and Sims 4 on it too, but that’s for another time.) I can just upload my files to Google Drive and download them to Pinky. I did it for the Sims 4 game files and that worked beautifully. I will have to see if OneDrive will sync up with Pinky too. I will also need to figure out why Pinky’s battery wasn’t charging yesterday when I had it plugged up. It charged fine on Saturday. I need to figure out if it’s where I had it plugged up or if I need a new charge chord. I will have to run the tests while I get everything up to date.

Now, I have to figure out what to do now that I have to functioning laptops again. I will figure something out. Meanwhile, you can…

I am Done with Webs.com!

That’s it. Webs have screwed up big time! They already messed when legacy file manager was not a priority anymore. You have to upgrade to use html code in site builder. I tried to use the older html editor, but it won’t show the results on the website anymore. Webs won’t let me downgrade either. I finally gave up and moved back to Neocities. Photobucket i s no longer a problem with them anymore. I have moved the main site to Neocities and I am liking it. I still have to edit everything and make it right. That’s going to take me a while, but I can do it.

I feel that 2018 will get better for me. I already have chapter two of Steel Prison edited. I can’t wait to get started on chapter three. City Lounge will be back again soon. I will be wrapping up New York and heading back to Paris for a third season. I have some many plans for the new year. I can’t wait to deliver on it. Merry Christmas and see you all in the new year. For now…

Noizchild and Office 365 are Getting Divorced (Maybe)

Yeah, you read that right. Office 365 and I might be breaking up. I’ve tried everything to get it to work, but it just failed on me. If you have to fight with a writing program to keep it from crashing every time you save, it’s time to wait for the new model. (Word 2019 is coming out next year.)

For now, I am using OpenOffice. It’s just like Word without some of the fancy features. I am coping with it and I like it. If I can figure out how to get it to the save point of where I typed and how to show my word count at the bottom, it would be perfect. For now, I will wait and you can…

Noizchild VS. Office 365

I have had headaches with Office 365. It started back on Wednesday. I had finished a long chapter, but then Word froze up on me and claimed that it ran into an error and needed to close. (It did this a little bit earlier too.) When it closed down, I opened it up and the second half of the chapter was gone. I struggled to keep it open and finish. I ran several repairs on Thursday, yesterday, and today. I even restored to uninstalling and reinstalling it. No dice. I finally had to call custom service. He walked me through the process and got it fixed. Right now, it’s working. Let’s hope that it works tomorrow. *Fingers crossed*

For now…

Introducing… City Lounge: Berlin (Additions)

These are the new characters of City Lounge: Berlin, Book Two:

  • Julia: 25, Emily’s coworker at Wings International—the Berlin branch
  • Mrs. Disel: German, 58, Emily’s neighbor in the apartment complex, cheeky old woman who is lonely and makes herself too much food, gives said food to everyone in the apartment complex

I wonder what new people or updates we will see when I start on book two of New York.

Also, I dropped my second external hard drive and now it makes a clicking noise when I plug it in and the drive doesn’t read. I am using OneDrive and Google Drive until I have the money to get my external drive fixed. For now…

I am a Bit Stuck

I have a bit of a problem. No, I already fixed the Photobucket one. I’m talking about the one for the main site.

I started out at Webs, but then it started to have problems. So, I moved to Neocities. That was great for a while, but it started to conflict with Photobucket in Chrome and Firefox. So, I went back to Webs. That was going fine until my files stopped loading and I couldn’t get the upload function to work. And they haven’t done anything to fix it. I can’t even reach them and they aren’t responding to my various complaints. I’m thinking that it’s time to move back to Neocities or find another server if the problems aren’t sorted. Anyone know of web servers that are free and will let me upload files? I’m open for suggestions. For now…

R.I.P. Pinky

Christmas 2008- February 15th, 2017

That’s right. Pinky has died. My first laptop has decided to stop working. What exactly happened? Was it the hard drive? A virus? Nope. The cmos battery holder came off. I kind of messed with it a year before just to get o the CMOS battery out to change it. I tried to super glue the holder back on and change the CMOS battery, but when I booted it back up the laptop, it said “Time of Clock has stopped”. Yep, it’s dead. I took out the hard drive to get the data off, but I don’t have the chords to connect to the new laptop. Speaking of which, I am using my new laptop (Which I have named Celty) and it is sweet! It has more space and the downloads on iTunes are much faster. Plus, the battery lasts longer than Pinky’s second battery.

It’s funny, Pinky lasted through the whole Obama administration. Oh well. I guess I figure out to fix Pinky one day and the other external hard drive. But for now…

Moving the Web Site

After x-amount of years, I am moving my web site from Webs to a new domain. Webs won’t let me upload html files under a free account anymore. (Which is bull, because I have been up loading files since I first signed up on Webs.com. I call bullshit on that.)  Plus, Webs have been have a number of problems lately. Everyone is constantly complaining on their Facebook page. I figured after I couldn’t save changes on the pages I already uploaded because of an anti-spam code, I knew it was time to go.

After a little searching, I found a new home with Neocities.org. I signed up and now I am uploading the main site day by day. It’s going to take a while since I have some many files to put up. I will let you all know when I have finished fixing everything. But for now…

God Save the Queen, the UK Screwed Up

Yes, the people voted to leave the EU yesterday. Yeah, Britain is screwed. The stock market took a nasty blow. Now, things are a mess for my other favorite country. Scotland and London wanted to stay. Now, Scotland might try to leave the UK again. It’s a crazy time now, my friends. However, it’s parliament that has the final say with the Brexit. Even that’s not good because they are in a mess too. It’s just really hectic and people in the UK are looking up what happens now.

Affirmative Action is here to stay. It looks Abby will have to stay mad and study like the rest of the human race. #StaymadAbby. #Beckywiththegoodgrades.

My new battery for Pinky came in today. Maybe still will stop my overheating problems. Love Addict will be re-published soon. Just hang in there. For now…

I Love Sims II

I love the Sims games. I have played them since the first one. This past update with the gender neutrality gave me some ideas. Here is what happened….

*Clears her throat*

Breaking News: Mortimer Goth is now Shelia and has divorced Bella and moved out of the house. Now, he lives with a new man.

What’s going to happen next? I think I will have Alexander gay. Bella’s going to be a cougar. (As suggested by someone in a Sim Group that I’m on in Facebook.) Oooo, even have her steal some of her son’s boyfriends. Oh! This is going to be fun. For now…
