https://astroaccess.org/ This is a 0G parabolic flight for disabled people. I've always wanted to go on one. I'm going to apply and pray I'm accepted. However, I have to pay for all travel. I can't do such thing. I highly doubt my parent's would be so nice to help me achieve a lifelong dream.

The events of this morning.

1 min read

My opening ceremony had a playback error at some point during the parade of nations. It was definitely before the US came into the stadium. I do know that having a nearly empty stadium is epic for acoustics!! You can hear everything!!

I fell asleep after that, and didn't wake up until around 11:30. My dad called to ask if I was going to my littler niece's birthday party. She's turning 1 tomorrow. I thought it might be today. However no one told me when it actually was, or what time it was. They just expected me to find the event invitation on Facebook.
I really don't use Facebook anymore. I can't stand it. The fact that no one bothered to text, call, or email me, and tell me that her party was today is flippin annoying!!!

Uh... Hulu failed to charge my card so I just found a replay of the opening ceremony on Peacock. Yeah it's 3 something in the morning lol. I dreamt I missed it a couple weeks ago. I haven't missed one since 1992. Both Summer and Winter that year.

Well I'm awake. I wanted to watch the opening ceremony at the correct time. However, it isn't on Hulu live or Peacock, and it isn't being live streamed with commentary on Youtube. Guess I'll have to wait blah.

Thus begins my Twitter blackout. I always take one during the Olympics. I can't guarantee that hashtag filters will actually work. Right now, I'm using a client that doesn't actually have those, so they aren't an option.

The Olympics officially start tomorrow, but there's always competition going on before the opening ceremony starts. Thanks to Hulu live, I'll be able to watch everything like I did in 2018.

They're playing a movie during the case I'm following, and I now feel like I'm on an induced trip. I've never seen a movie being played in a courtroom before. Sure in a theater, but that was pre-Covid.

I just ordered Subway from Dorrdash. When the driver got up the stairs to my apartment, he stood there for like 10 seconds. I had to tell him, "hand it to me please." He really didn't know what to do lol.

Sorry for the crappy formatting on that post. i really suck at markdown, but I hate rich text editors. I wish Known had a plaintext editor.

Sleep study.

2 min read

I have a sleep study coming up next month. My primary care doctor wanted to order one, because I do have trouble sleeping. Although it could be Non 24 hour sleep wake disorder, she also might think it could be sleep apnea. [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Non-24-hour_sleep%E2%80%93wake_disorder] The only way to test for non 24, is to do a 24 hour time isolated surveiled test. In other words, put me in a room, take away my phone, and computer. Uh... no thanks!! I found this link, which explains way more about non 24 that I ever needed to know lol. [https://rarediseases.org/rare-diseases/non-24-hour-sleep-wake-disorder/] I can actually play with my sleep schedules. For instance the Olympics are coming up, and I'm a huge fan. Coincidentally, I have the test the day after the closing ceremony. Since they're in Japan this time, I'm sure I'll be staying up late watching events, and sleeping between the daytime and primetime broadcasts, but let's not forget about latenight. I tend to stay up all night on purpose most of the time. I'll get wrapped up in the case I'm watching, or the research I'm doing, because I want to keep doing that, even though I know it's 3 AM and I need to go to bed lol. This has roots from when I first had access to the internet. My sister would want to talk on the phone all! flippin! day! and we had dial-up. I'd stay up into the early morning hours reading blogs, this was back in 2003, because she'd be in bed and wouldn't be on the phone. This can also happen because of the extremely painful headaches I get. I'll wake up in the middle of the night, and not be able to get back to sleep, or I'll go to bed and not sleep, because of the headache.

I'm sure micro.blog has gone down before, but I don't think I've ever seen it. I went to go there, and it was down, blah!!

Woopsy.

Somehow the text plugin got disabled. No, I don't know what I did. OK that's fixed now. Lol Known isn't really that hard to use, I must be dense.

Also, I seem to have lost my ability to make a post with a title. Something weird has happened.

I'm looking for epic linkblogs. Yeah I know about the obvious ones. Epic= ones that don't just post the latest news, they actually post stuff that's off the mainstream internet, stuff you don't see each day.

Just downloaded Windows 10 21h1. It took about a minute at the most. Lol the joys of fiber!

Well I just ordered cookies from Doordash, I hope they'll be epic. We have one of these here in our area, now. https://crumblcookies.com/

I guess my Pastor wanted to take today off. We didn't have church today, which is strange. OK interesting question that someone brought up on Twitter. Is it weird that you can't tweet from an RSS reader? I mean, someone said they don't use RSS for this reason.

Just completed a podcast with a friend. It's going to be out the first of next month. I'll post the link when I get it. Man I was nervous. I've never been a guest on a podcast before.

OK question, does Known support enclosures for podcasts? I might just set mine up on a Known instance, instead of paying extra for Pinecast. They do have a free plan, but it's extremely limiting.

I slept all flippin day yesterday. Wow I've never done that before.

Watching Olympic trials most of today. I also signed up for Peacock, and I can't decide to keep both that and Hulu live, or just Peacock.

I'm trying to find a little clip in the OJ case. It was about DNA. Lawyer asks witness, "Does DNA fly?" Witness says "no, it doesn't have wings." I laughed so hard when I hadn't even turned 12 yet. The lawyer also asked the witness if DNA comes alive at night. I believe it was around the end of May of 95.

I'm following a case in which the 79 year old defendant has a catheter bag. The producer tweeted that it was full earlier. Um... if I were sitting in a courtroom with a catheter bag, I wouldn't want her telling the world that it was full.

I think I'm done with . I skipped too many. I'm going to think about doing a podcast every couple weeks. I just have to decide whether I pay $10 a month for Pinecast, or try and upload it here, even though I don't think Known supports enclosures.

All of a sudden, my Twitter client decided to deauthorize both of my accounts when I started it up. I reauthorized one of them, but it wouldn't let me add the other one, which is what I'm using for . I restarted, and added the other account, but for some reason, it won't let me add back the second one. I tried to download a second client, but got a Python error that prevented it from running.

Lol I just punked someone big time!! Someone called and asked if this was me, by my legal name. I said um... sure!!! They hung up lol.

It's supposed to be like 97 here. I just ordered 3 slurpees, a bunch of jerky from Safeway, and taquitos from Seven-Eleven.

I had lots of fun at our church picnic today!!

1 min read

Unfortunately I had to manage my DI while I was there. However I had some kids shoot me with water guns, so that was fun. I also had my community group leader pour ice cold water on my head, that was cold. I've never taken the ice bucket challenge before, I wanted them to pour this big thing of ice on me, so that I can say I did. I'm sure it would've felt epically cold for a while, then just epic. It was extremely hot today!! [https://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/diabetes-insipidus/symptoms-causes/syc-20351269]

I've been up for about an hour now. I have a church picnic later today. We'll have our service first, then the picnic.

The meeting last night was epic!! I was really tired when I got home. I did have to transfer some recordings from my phone for , and that took a while. Unfortunately the share to Dropbox thing on the iPhone didn't want to work for some reason.

I have a community group meeting tonight. We're meeting once a month because of Summer. I'm not sure what other groups at my church are doing. I suppose I'll ask when I get there. I'm going to try to record something for .

OK question, can you use hashtags in a known blog post, like you can in a status update?

Working with CloudBlast on accessibility.

1 min read

Accept I'm not an accessibility expert!! I know what works for me, and that's about it. Web standards stil elude me, and that's a good thing. Mostly because I think perfect compliance all the time is impossible. I'm sure I've had pages that would never validate, because a tester found an error or 2 or 3. However, that doesn't mean I can't navigate those pages, or they didn't work for me.

Well I'm up early. It's almost 5 AM here. Unfortunately I did wake up with a headache, but the narrotriptan I took seems to have taken most of it away.

Building a lifestream with iFTTT.

1 min read

I'm setting up an IFTTT lifestream for hopeslife.blog. I've always wanted to do this. I tried looking at WP RSS importer plugins, but they all require cron to post automatically, and I'm not sure if CloudBlast is ready for that as of yet. The other plugins I was looking at were social stream plugins. However, they all want to show the feed on a widget somewhere, and not import it into a blog post.

I had Botox this morning. I even recorded it for the challenge I'm participating in. https://anchor.fm/hope657/episodes/Audiomo-day-17-Botox-e12v3pq

OK question, how do I syndicate to WP? I found the plugin and enabled it, but where are the settings for it?

Well let's take this thing for a test, shall we? I've always wanted to use Known, and here I am. Thanks to cloudblast.network for setting this up for me!!
