Counting Down and Planning

May is coming to an end in a few days. Within two weeks, it will be June. That means new projects are coming. I can’t wait to start on season seven of my Wasteland Project. The Earth Child season finale will be coming up on the seventh. Volume three of City Lounge: Paris will wrap up next month too. But don’t worry, I’ll start volume three of City Lounge: Berlin. Writing isn’t the only thing I am looking forward to either.

I will get to finish the live action version of Erased on Netflix. (I only have two episodes left.) Then, I’m going to watch From This Corner of the World next. Then, it’s off to Hulu to watch some episodes of Moone Boy. Before that, I will be done with season one of Some Girls. So much stuff to watch, including the 2009 movie, Moon.

On top of that, I will vacation in June at some point. Can you believe that we’re about halfway through 2018? Time keeps running away from us. I’m just happy to be getting some stuff done.

Oh and Photobucket freed all of the pictures. They are under new management now. I guess they realized that they screwed up with charged $399 for embedding pictures and now they are trying to woo them back. That leaves me with one thing: Should I just leave all of the pictures on my website I didn’t convert to Imgur or should I keep moving them to Imgur like I have been doing since last year? Either way, I still have to fix the music and other small glitches on my site. Oh boy, it’s going to take me a while. I was insane in my younger years with the posting, but it’s well worth it. While I ponder this dilemma, you can…

Happy 2018 Everyone!

Welcome to 2018, my darlings! May this year be better than the last one.

Good news, chapter three of Steel Prison has been edited! I am hoping for snow this week. I was told that I was going to get some this week. My first day into the new year’s been pretty good. Got some writing done. Work’s been picking and I did some jobs on the first day. I will do more jobs tomorrow. I will get paid next week too.

What shall we be looking forward to? Well, I will try to get in editing of chapter four of Steel Prison. I still intend on getting that published some time this year. Not just for the ebook either, I intend to do hardcover and maybe send it to a publisher. I will still be fixing  my site to get rid of the Photobucket pictures. Some things will be finished. I am going to start new project to tide me over for waiting to start the next season of my Wasteland Project. (The waiting is going to suck like always.) I will work on a one-shot Durarara omake to go with the Wonderland series. I might do another one shot pilot for the Wasteland Project. For now on that one, I just have bits and pieces. I will try to get a full-time job while I’m at it.

That is so much to promise in one day, but it is doable for me. Also, these aren’t New Year’s Resolutions. I never make those. But, I am determined to make this year better than last year. Wish me luck. While you’re at it…

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…

Is 2017 Over Yet?

I can’t wait for this year to be over. Sadly, we have three more days and a whole month left. I am so bored, to be honest. I feel like I am stuck. I’m still writing, but I haven’t put out anything to publish this year. My job’s getting slow and the edits for Steel Prison aren’t on a schedule. Most of my efforts were spent fixing my web site. (Thanks Photobucket for ruining everything! Not!)

I don’t know. Maybe I just need something new. Maybe 2018 will be better. I do need to make some changes. And I will try as hard as I can. Maybe find something new in the process. For now, I have to get through the rest of this year while you…

I Need Some Recomendations

I am feeling lazy again with my watching things. I did start Inside No. 9 last week and the first episode was quite interesting. I might go back to it when I’m not so lazy. Fixing the pictures on my site is going well. It’s still going to take me a long time to change those pictures from Photobucket to Imgur, but the Chrome extension, Fix Embedded Photobucket Images, just made it a little bit easier for me.

Meanwhile, I’m waiting for American Horror Story: Cult to start up in two weeks. In the meantime, I am looking for something new to latch onto to help break my laziness and get me back into the rhythm of watching my backlogs again. Anybody have any ideas? Comment below in the comment section. While you’re at it…

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…

Rant Corner #6

I’ve been sitting on this for close to a week, but it just has to come out. So here goes.

Ever since 2004, I have used this picture storage site called Photobucket. I just uploaded my pictures and hot link the to my web site to save space because I am so broke at the moment. Everything’s been going go.

Until this month.

For some reason, some “genius” decided to stop allow hot linking to third-party sites. This blocked out pictures with an image saying you need to go to this link to upgrade your account. In order to have your pictures back on your site/forum/blog, you have to pay up to $400 a year.

Are you kidding me?! This is a joke, right?! NOBODY WANTS TO PAY $400 TO HOT LINK THEIR PICTURES! What makes it worse is that Photobucket changed their terms of service without any warning whatsoever. People are pissed! There are many complaints on their Facebook and Twitter pages. I even signed a petition for them to change their policy back. Photobucket has done nothing to address their problem or fix it. Now, I understand needing money to keep the site open, but $400 is not a reasonable price to charge for ANYTHING online. $50 or lower is reasonable, but not $400. It would be one thing if Photobucket said, “Hey everybody, we’re going to be doing this” ahead of time. But they didn’t even do that.

I’m on Imgur now and will have time fixing all the pictures on my site. (Even more so since the files on Webs won’t load and I can’t get the upload function to work. I keep asking for tech support to help, I haven’t heard anything back from them since last week. I might go into that for another rant if nothing changes.) I even have my pictures backed up on various CD’s. But the problem is figuring out where the hell everything goes on my massive and forever-growing site. Argh! Photobucket and Webs keep creating more work for me and tech fail that are driving me crazy! Can I just have one day without tech fail and have my web running and functioning how I want it?! Is that too much to ask for?! IS IT?!
