Good morning Gerbil Nation! I seem to have been successful in my attempt to flip my schedule to daytime for the weekend. It’ll make Church and some visiting much easier.

I wonder if I should change my profile pic? I was like 40 somethin’ when that was taken, or maybe late 30ies. Not sure. But I’m pushing 60 at this point so…. I look more than a bit different, especially if I don’t color my beard and hair--which usually I’m too lazy to do. Sometimes, when I stream I put some temp color on because I think a bit of contrast looks better on the stream. I had long dreds for a while a few years back, but I cut ’em off one day. Why am I telling All Y’all… Read more »

Ya know, I think my daughter took this picture so probably, I was not quite forty. Funny thing is I can’t find any more copies of this picture on the cloud except this very small low res one that I made for thumbnail/profile pics all those years ago. Not sure why I never uploaded a regular copy onto the cloud somewhere, but it appears I didn’t.

Happy Caturday But With Doggos, GN! Hi, dv8! Teh yay for flipping your schedule. I dyed my facial hair for a lot of years, mostly as my head-hair obstinately refused to go gray at all and I didn’t like the “mix”. At 63, still kinda mixed up top; I was hoping I’d go completely white-haired in my late ’50s like Dad did. Oh well… You’re growing a mullet?? The last time I got anything resembling a haircut was a trim right before SackO’SugarK and I got hitched more than nine years ago. (And I’d been letting my hair grow at… Read more »

I’m really too lazy to dye my hair, but, as I often say on my streams:

I’m not particularly vain about it, but I do think that since I’m so pale, that touching up my hair and beard adds some much needed contrast, particularly when I use a green screen which can wash you out further.

Plus, my lighting setup isn’t very good. I really hate lights in my eyes, so I just have 4 walmart LED lamps shining at the wall in front of me which (barely) provide enough light to light the green screen.

This makes me think of the “Mullets rule” t shirt in the movie “Blood Lock.”

Speaking of the new house, maybe I could get Little Mouse to venture out here for a visit if I mention that we have a grand piano in the living room. SQueAk! If your health would hold up for a trip we would love to see you again. I’d even dust teh living room!

Happy Caturday, Gerbil Nation! Good day, dv8, Mac, and Fatwa! I come to you courtesy of a new laptop. Yesterday morning, I got a notice that my hard drive was failing. I prepped an external hard drive to receive the back-up, but by time that was done, my computer crashed, then would not boot. I spend my spare time yesterday researching laptops that I could pick up today. I really hate rushed research. I know I could have picked up a new hard drive for my laptop -- Teh Older has a copy of Windows 7 -- but the laptop… Read more »

Good luck with the freezer gambit. I’ve been lazy about backups since cloud storage.

There is also this open distributed cloud thing that I’ve been looking into. I can tell you more about it once I study it some more.
