Hey everybody! I wanted to bring something up, and it’s not an easy thing for anyone to talk about, or witness, due to it impacting on any productive things one does on a daily basis: Sleeping in way too much!
So from what I can tell you here, is likely from some experience, including being a heavy to light sleeper myself, to some people’s parents averaging a total of 12-16 hours of sleep in total, every day. Understanding is one thing, but willfully not wanting to wake up when there are things to do, tasks to be completed, housework to be done… It can all fall behind into a backlog!
Maybe there is some other underlying problem, could it be depression or some other mental health disorder? I think so. Occasionally I get/feel the blues, but that doesn’t stop me from hauling my butt out of bed. I do that, I remain awake, alert and I keep the brain of mine occupied.
Remember this: We are not animals that hibernate for months on end! We have a family to raise, a job to go to, and work to be done, even if it’s once a day! There’s books to read, exercise to be done, even if it’s as cold as an ice cave outside. We have to keep going on.
What I can suggest and advise, is to talk to somebody especially if the oversleeping, or willful oversleeping (you don’t want to get out of bed at all!) Is becoming a big problem! DON’T deny it. You need that help. It’s a little something that can improve everything for your own well-being and health.
Anyways, just wanted to make a new post, to indicate that this blog is not “dead” at all.
Cheers! Feel free to share/e-mail this post.

I bet you’ve gotten that one issue where you were trying to update the metadata on your youtube video, and it told you that you weren’t even signed in, when you already were and it pissed you off quite a bit. Well, you aren’t alone. The same thing goes when uploading via the mobile app (depending on phone manufacturer and/or software), where it fails numerous times with many glitches, errors or nonsense sayings.
Even when uploading from your desktop browser (firefox, microsoft/windows internet explorer, safari on mac, google chrome/chromium,opera, midori on linux or mac, etc.) or tablet browser and it fails with an error that it was rejected, regardless of what you tried, to get it to upload again and again and again. When it says the file type is invalid, that can drive you bonkers especially if it’s not invalid either. Then it’s the server’s fault. I have renamed a few videos to 3GP or MOV to even get it to work in that case, but it doesn’t always help.
Same for commenting, it gives you that error to try again (sometimes posting the comment anyways until your refresh to see the same thing as many times you tried again) and then give up. That can drive people up the wall.
What about monetising? I got the same damn issue, telling me I’m not authorised to even do so until I refresh the page and it says to login again. Big Bollocks! It’s lame. When will google fix that? Like seriously. Then again, they moved the earnings thing from adsense to youtube ANALtics, which removes earnings tracking by the hour to 24 hours. You had better find another big video site to have that feature if it uses adsense. Seriously, you better.
It’s bad enough dailymotion has that issue (deleting cookies in either case won’t do much justice) and videos get lost, aborted or scrapped, unless you refresh it before attempting. I usually upload three to four at a time in separate tabs (depending on uplink/upstream/upload speed) and it works out. Google (youtube) has the same issue now and I had to re-upload multiple videos to even get them on the net.
Also depending on your browser, using the mobile upload form (http://m.youtube.com/my_videos_upload) can kick some serious butt, that is, if you don’t mind videos uploading with irrelevant tags, but multiple at the same time instead of “one by one” with the desktop uploader, sure rocks better and harder. If your connection is bad, then it won’t do any justice. Period. It’ll just time out, all the time.
What about webcam uploads? Eh? I get this shooted “timed out” issue when recording, often in the middle and am forced to start over, after logging in AGAIN. Such a pain. And not to forget, it affects GNU/Linux users too. What about the webcam recorder blocking access to the microphone? That sure sucks. The videos are often muted and you won’t know until you preview or save them. Pity, much of a pity and a pain in the arse.
Oh well, that’s my rant. Thanks for reading. Hopefully I helped solve something.

Visiting the family in Pickering, Picking street apples, doing nothing for two days straight and free soda!Posted: August 21, 2012 | |
Okay, so this blog entry starts out when I woke up on a Saturday morning, eating somewhat of a good meal and then heading on a long 5 hour trip to Pickering to see my aunt, uncles and relatives. It was a damn good trip and I sure got a workout, not as much as going to and from Oshawa, but a good enough one to tire me out both ways. I got there, only after meeting them at Pickering GO station, thanks to the pedestrian overpass that allows cyclists to cross too, also extremely thankful it had elevators. Who wants to haul a bike 9 stories up? I wouldn’t. Lol
Okay, when I got there, we mostly spent the time outside talking. My my, the youngsters sure grew up fast! At age 12, they’re getting older and mature, which is a good thing. None of their childhood is missing or lost out, I’d be disappointed if it were. Nice nieces, beautiful ones. I saw the dogs as soon as I got inside, bunch of cute chihuahuas. The birds, a few finches and parrotletts, were ultimately cute. I didn’t get the chance to hold them due to the dogs, as they’d be hunted down. I talked up a damn thunderstorm with everybody and spilled out tons of information and stories of my biking experiences and may have inspired more of the family to bring out the bicycles to work out more.
Then we ordered KFC, oh the salty, sodium goodness, so much it burned a damn hole in my tongue!! Kidding, but it stung pretty good. I wish they would ease up on the damn salt. It’s in the batter, the oil, barely enough spices, just SALT, SALT AND MOAR SALT!!!!!!!11 …okay, whatever. I ate it anyways, needed the energy and couldn’t say no to uncle john for buying it for everybody. My main gripe is with KFC, but that’s all. It was GOOD nonetheless. Now, upon wrapping things up, when it got dark outside, we discussed other things I can’t mention, personal shit, you know. Internet video was discussed, youtube issues too, including false flagging, which they were quite aware of and shocked to find out I lost 17 channels due to it. glares at googletube staff for neglecting everything.
Finally, it was time to go. I didn’t want to leave to be honest, but they had to go to bed and my aunt had to go back to the airport for the return trip to halifax, which was all day sunday. So upon arguing and convincing everybody that I’d be fine with biking all the way back home, it they finally agreed. It took quite a bit of talking them into it and that was NOT an easy task. So once they got in the car, I biked to altonia ave and headed north to Finch, what I thought would go straight west into toronto, didn’t. It went north to steeles, which had no streetlights of any kind. So I scrapped it. I had to turn back and try twyn rivers road. Shame, that dumped into a BIG conservation park, I didn’t want to fly down a hill at over 120 km/h at night. Hell no.
So I took the route back to kingston road, then went to sheppard, the other side of the park and discovered an apple tree, two of them to be exact, with mclintosh apples. DAMN!! CAN’T GO WRONG WITH FREE FRESH UNMODIFIED FRUIT!! 😀 I went picking. I can recall I must have gone overboard, because I had over 40 in the basket. I had to then lug it all home without losing any of it due to all of the pot holes, sink holes and all that on some roads. That went successfully. I got home with a sore, aching back. The apples, still fresh, are in a basket. I’m thinking of going back there next week to collect more, at a time I’m more in shape. That is going to be rock solid FUN! Who doesn’t like picking them.
By the time I got home, it was well into 3:00am, into the morning. I ate again like a horse, well, had a small snack and then, passed out to bed. I woke up the following day, didn’t do much at all, just managed a few things online and cleaned out some bad window managers and shit from Linux and streamlined some things desktop wise.
Today, being a Monday, I didn’t do much at all either, except create a facebook, and yahoo mail account for somebody who needed it, but didn’t have access to a computer with an internet connection. Their phone they’re borrowing, has web access, just not full access. So I did them a favor. It took a while to come up with a strong password and complex security questions/answers, but it finally got done. I felt so good to do so.
Then, afterwards, headed down on the bike to check out what I thought was a grape vine a few months ago, turned out to be not more than a barry vine. Tough shit, I didn’t get any fucking grapes!!! RAEG!! Lol! So I decided to head into the downtown sector via the lakeshore/waterfront/martin goodman trail. It didn’t take long, had to detour a few times due to some closures, that didn’t phase me a bit. I then, once I got to yonge street, tore after mcdonalds to get a free soda and make a pit stop. I then proceeded to upload TWO videos, which are going to be after all this, for your viewing pleasure, of what I spotted on the bridge that crosses the humber river. Nice squids to be honest, LED ones, well, inside LED’s illuminated them. Artistic to the max!
Now, I’m about to head home to get some much needed rest. Thank you so very much for reading!! DO be sure to share, like and spread this blog entry around on the interwebs, good and bad, evil or funny, I don’t care. Just need people to read and comment. PEACE!!!
Oh and here are the videos:
This is bad, real bad. Cyberbullying is such an issue, even more than what most would think, worse than most would think too, it affects everybody online and it can sometimes venture OFFLINE on purpose or by accident if the victim is lured to fight, or call the police because of it, but the hard part is, the police really cannot do anything about it.
That is what makes this hatred, harassment and stalking the worst. Nobody can even escape it without taking extreme measures, like white-washing their entire online identity, blocking everybody/all of the accounts used to harass them daily, change phone numbers or worse of all, commit suicide. That is what bothers me the most. It should NEVER come to that. People who drive victims of cyberbullying, for their own personal enjoyment, or “fun”, to extremes due to getting off from it, should be liable for the damages causes, be it physically, mentally and emotionally!
They should NOT get away with it. I am writing this blog post also for the exact reason that since 2008, I have been a victim of cyberbullying. Like me, people with disabilities are often found to be the easiest of targets, could easily be tricked and portrayed and mislead into thinking their friends are cyberbullies. This isn’t good. Those ones making all those spoof or impersonating accounts isn’t right. Why can’t they just do something else instead, like go out and make friends, find employment, do something right for a change?
If you, or anybody else has experienced cyberbullying, or bullying of any kind, STAND UP FOR YOURSELVES!!! Online, that is a different story, block them, all of them, the ones harassing you. Don’t even react, post a reply, or video reply/response either. File a privacy complaint if your personal information is shown in a video or anywhere, to get it removed, or change your phone number, but make sure your friends know it, your real friends.
Don’t make your address public, or even private, keep it to YOU, YOUR FAMILY, YOUR REAL FRIENDS who you SEE AND THOSE THAT COME TO SEE YOU! Facebook, set the privacy settings to custom, “only you” for your name, postal address, e-mail address and phone number. That way, it NEVER gets out, or leaked, when somebody adds you.
If anybody comes to your door to harass you, or at school, notify the authorities RIGHT AWAY. Don’t delay or put it off, make sure your parents are aware of it too, don’t make them wonder what is happening, make them understand, be open about it. For those who’s personal information, yes, that’s you, anybody who is under the legal age, or a minor, that is posted on a public website that I will NOT mention, it won’t be removed. You’ll have to make sure that the authorities are aware of it, same for your parents. DO THIS FOR YOUR OWN SAFETY.
Okay, enough of this, at least I finally vented this off my chest. Cyberbullying has to stop, the laws need to change, things need REFORM. Thank you for reading.
