Good to hear from you - so since your hard drive crapped out, use the one I
I still got one, but it's misbehaving a bit and not sure how long it will last, after it fell out of my bag once and onto the pavement. Anyway, online may be the way to go. these webhost companies do double redundancies and all that shamooz, so it's pretty safe, and ftp on web is an easy way to transfer. The internet will only get faster and cheaper, but portable harddrive is definitely good for transfering if in the same location, which I'm usually not anymore.
Do you mind downloading through http? I generally only give ftp access for uploading only, and then I can copy the files to my webdownload folder, as some people could screw up and accidentally erase everything. My internet (got a new 3G modem so am happy to have high speed internet right on the beach) is a bit slow at the moment, so will send you the details once I got faster internet. In the meantime, you can check out what I got at:
Just uploaded about 50 gigs and I'll transfer that to this same folder once my internet is faster (am lazy about opening the backdoor at the moment to put my modem outside).
So you wanna start a business? Would be interested to hear what about.
You use avaxhome.ws for downloading movies etc? They're selling 500 gigs of space for some 54 Euro a year, and with that you get to download like a mfkr, so I might do that once I get cash again. Right now I got their free account thing and downloading can be choppy, but I'm still busy downloading the 50 gigs, which I only discovered recently, so I'm downloading from avax in between.
Attaching your file to show what movies I'd be interested in, if you'd be up to uploading them. Can send ftp details later.
Yah, still write my travel blob once in a while. Made a shortcut link through kenax.net/travel, so not sure what you read last. Not sure it's ready to make me any money yet. Downloaded a bunch of seo programs recently so we'll see if that can produce anything.
Maybe I could help you brainstorm with some of your ideas. I think that one very important key of success in business is not to give up. I refuse to, because I absolutely detest the office environment and never want to return to it. I'd rather shovel shit or much rather do construction work. But I did apply to google, after reading about their corporate culture. If I could work in my shorts, no tie (which Ilike to call a corporate leash) and can work whenever I want, sometimes from home, then I'd consider working in an office. I like that google has foosball tables there, and I would suggest setting up a volleyball session out on the lawn to break up a shift. Otherwise, with 8 hours straight, I find people just get tired, go home and watch TV. I'd rather break up the shift, and then work later.
Well, have a good one. Tell me how fast it was downloading from my site. Am curious.
gave you :-) sure, I'll download whatever I can get my hands on. I have the following - not sure the best way to get them up for you but could figure something out. I have been using Rapidshare and I think they're pretty good. Life here in
yah, I think it just further satisfies me as to my situation. First of all, translations are pretty well always needed and I have never somehow felt connected to these global or domestic economic swings. Second of all, with no rental or electricity bills and the ability to survive on roughly 10 bucks a day, I think I could survive a global depression. Not to mention that I'm creative and I can always find work, and survive with such low costs. And third of all, I can always rev up the beautiful ol' engine and drive somewhere else, such as for example urban areas where these riots and unrest develop. I think people on islands are more chill, perhaps grow their own food, and that's where I'll gladly make my home for the next many years. I was practically shocked at what came over
well they're having race riots in
now that you are in
Hope that guy buys my treeplanting software so that I can get to
So at the moment I have crappy internet, going to the internet cafe for an hour a day to check my email etc. But as you can see I can STILL run my business, as I am translating a job right now. Of course it is better that I have some means to check my email once every hour while in the truck, as I have for the past two years, but with my new 3G modem locked and Ruskin having broken my pocketpc, I simply do not have that luxury at the moment. But I can still operate, so that you do not think something silly like I cant etc.
wow, that is insane. Werent they talking about global warming all this time? But I guess a general warming can easily result in ocean currents changing and weather patterns changing as a result in different parts of the globe. The arctic is generally melting but who knows. As long as the big ocean belt does not stop moving, which it apparently does once in a while, and lead to The Day After. Ever seen that movie? Bush tried to ban in while in office. Scary shit, and can happen.
But at least it seems you had a nice white Christmas, and sitting around a toasty fire after shoveling snow. I always dig that. My Christmas will probably be walking around
this is insane. I don't know what's going to happen later today, but right now we have a total whiteout. I had everything shovelled, my house Marie's house and Zohar's house, completely yesterday. I even dug out Mark's car, just in case we got a freeze and his car turned into a popsicle for three weeks. It's fun I don't mind doing it, I get good exercise and have an excuse to be outside in this weather. Today it doesn't even look like I did anything. And its supposed to go on all day. Here is a shot of what
What capitals? Letters? Don't understand.
Weather is not good but dry so we can walk. little cold. But it is winter in Praha. There is a calamity in
Sounds like it would be fun for me in Van. I like crazy stuff like that. Nice for a short visit anyway.
Where were you for Jezisek. ? I made a fish soup just for you. It is in the freezer now,maybe you haveit later. :):)
Will drink it in my brain. Nothing happened for Christmas eve, but the day before my Czech-American friend drove up from the north side to party and play chess in the capital, where I'm parked now, trying to resolve my internet problems.
Vlad is still sick, OK in the morning but bad by the evening., I am getting it. But fighting. Never had Christmas like that. So what it is with you walking across the border from
Safe on the south side and wont take it across to the north anymore, since too many problems there. Walking across is okay. Am trying to resolve my internet, which is why I'm in the capital at the moment, the last divided capital in the world. Walking across is easy enough. With a car its a bigger problem, especially with my beast.
Did the treeplanting company paid you everything???? If not ask for retainer or full price before youstart working. Be careful, people do not pay now. Often they can not!!!!! Taliking from experience, we had to break the lease on the apartment. I hate doing it but I have no money to pay for it. And do not feel sorry for the guy who owns it, he has lots of my money beforehand anyway. But people do not pay their bills now. everywhere. so do what you want but do not believe in promises. Money up front.
As I thought I explained, I'm just selling the software I had already developed over the summer, so no extra work. My plan is to send it to him, then he pays me a thousand bucks, then I develop it more (since he wants me to incorporate something), then I ask him to pay the rest before I send him the update. We'll see. But will be nice to do something intelligent. Would rather switch to stuff like this, with translations self operating on the side. What I've been shooting for for the last couple of years, just hasn't materialised yet. But when I get a job like this, it always excites me.
NOthing to report from here. Will go to see Cisariks on Friday afternoon. I walk Prague as much as I can. I almost enjoy it most when I amalone. Can think and remember people when I want and pay attention only to myself. Did not do much of that in my life. Went to cemeterny to mama a tata and lkit the candle for all of us.. Mainly Jana. Going to call her now, if anything new I willwrite again. You write and tell me about you whenever you get to the internet. And do not be mad at me all the time. I mean well I just think diferently than you. thank goodnesssssss
Well, we all think differently, like Simona says, which is what makes the world more interesting. I guess I was in a rush because at the internet cafe on limited time and felt I needed to answer right away, rather than later on in peace in the truck. Sounded like preaching again, plus I'm rather sensitive about that response, because that's what Jens said and it really angered me. Long story but I know my situation and such naïve interpretations that it's because of less accessible internet... I've been comparing my situation a bit to Job, and been actually reading it recently. Some guy is having problems and everyone judges him at face value, assuming that his suffering must be because of some sin. But it is a lot deeper than that. Complex story, as are the various arguments. I find my predicament absurd and assume there must be some complex God reason behind it all. just too many hurdles in my way all the time and it doesn't make sense.
And I think my CSOB charges me 50 Kc a month for my account. I need details.
I used to have CSOB. Anyway, I don't want to pay anything. Why should I? We'll see if we can sort something out, otherwise perhaps I'll go up to
