A 7-post collection

Wednesday, Comms breakdown, Wordpress, and Shenanigans

Optus is closing for maintenance today, so there's going to be communication issues and likely some even dodgier internet. If that happens, I have vinyl sorting to fall back on while I work on my nonsense.

I just now did my stretches, and got help closing off an automatic transfer that I never set up in the first place.

Because internet outage, Beloved is working at the office today. So much for the work at home plans. Ah well.

We're pulling our heads in because financial nonsense. Things have been blowing up a little around us and the PayPal hack did NOT help things.

At least I have measures in place to prevent those levels of bullshit, now.

Onwards to the offerings, including the Wordpress stuff.

Tuesday, Patreon and Building Things

I have Patreon posts to make, chambers and world to build, red tape to unriddle... lots and lots of things to do.

MeMum has battled financial nonsense and why she owes Mr Taxman a huge honk of moolah. Going through the liveplay of that was... "fun".

I did offer to help with the websites and how to print emails and all other technogeek things, but she'd rather whimper in a corner. I empathise entirely. I, too, would like to whimper in a

Challenge #03142-H233: Watch Out For the Little Ones

A crew of tough-as-nails space marines finds the lone survivor of a shipwreck that had been sending out distress signals. The planet itself was utterly uninhabitable, it was shocking the kid survived. The child, barely two years of age, became their mascot, and guarded treasure. This little child, a level 2 Deathworlder, would grow up with a large family, and space marines are a bit fierce about protecting those they love. -- Anon Guest

Trouble barely remembered life before they joined up

Challenge #02977-H054: Fight Fire With...?

I love your stories of young Pib and the family that's living and working on a ship full of havenworlders. I've decided that Pib's naughty could be useful sometimes. Which is why the havenworlders take a large portion of it in good humor while the child is so young.

Oh, I know by some of your stories you like us to put the prompts in so here you go.

The pirate ship had them captured and

I need to brain

I tried getting up early, but it was too late to stream, so not a lot got done on the whole podcast front I have a LOT of editing to do and streaming kept me on task, but now I'm sleeping through my streaming time and I have no idea what to do.

What I can do is keep trying anyway. I could stream on Saturdays and get the same work done. It's not as if there was anyone following my streams

Bad news

My computer is dying.

It’s limping along for about twenty minutes or so before it crashes and has to cool down.

Which means I have just enough time to write in my blog before it’s out of commission again.

30 March. Sic transit gloria mundi.

And since we’re saving our shekels so I can have a holiday, blogging is going to be low priority. As is Facebook and minecraft. All my projects are officially on hold
