Just a short one on this end. Let’s start out with the good news on two ends. One being that the diet is actually still on in spite of problems that have been going on in the background, with some of the humans. So at the very least, the next visit I have with members of the ‘gang of five’ will be a good one.
Secondly the old AGFA 1212u scanner does work under Windows 10. But for that to be the case, it took loads of research and then finding what could at best, be called a ‘creative workaround’ to this [email me later if interested, the tactic is cool, albeit a tad sneaky], the machine does work. Now it is a matter of working around the color balance issues in same.
As for the humans, well that is another kettle of fish altogether. But what I will say is that I am following the advice that I give ‘my kids’ as in the ones who I am a net-mom for, as well as the ones I do tutor [As well as the ones I am close to or severely smitten with]. Which is to say that when someone, be they an ‘authority figure’ or someone else decides to act in a manner which is detrimental, unseemly, illegal, vile, despicable, rotten, crude, boorish or is bullying to stand one’s ground. Or to paraphrase what Billy Joel says at the end of his concerts:
‘Don’t take no sh*t from nobody!!!’
He may not be a Brooklyn Kid, but the advice is apt…and hopefully will have more to state about what is going on later….
