cartoon life: A shaggy black dog

This is our childhood dog. His name was Scotty. Who knows why. He makes a number of appearances in my sisters little commemorative memoir and biographical book about her life and childhood adventures in our neighbourhood East of Adelaide in London Ontario. Book and ebooks to come soon. There will be a post about it […] . . . → Read More: cartoon life: A shaggy black dog

cartoon life: Shaving time

I probably would have stayed with the same brand. But it’s too difficult to match things up. I have two big brand name handles bought in the last year, because I previously bought blade cartridges that didn’t fit the previous handle I was using. Can’t find that handle. Whenever my daughter comes home from college, […] . . . → Read More: cartoon life: Shaving time

cartoon life: How about a transit-run AI self-driving smart car system for #ldnont?

Hmmm, maybe a crazy idea. My retro future fantasy brain on a spree. The city transit service could run a small fleet of AI Smart, small self-driving cars. Electric. We know they’re coming. A kind of car share system managed by a transit authority. You could hire one over the phone or through an app […] . . . → Read More: cartoon life: How about a transit-run AI self-driving smart car system for #ldnont?

cartoon life: Some foods I just can’t abide any longer

   Extensive list of allergies from the Gamma-Dynacare tests. Casein (milk, cheese, eggs), soft wheat, Corn, Oats….. Vanilla, Flax, Oranges, Mussels, Pea, some beans. Barley, Malt… Peanut butter, Walnuts… Starting dairy free today. Have to bring my glasses everywhere to read labels. No cheese. A staple. No Oats. The end of the morning standard breakfast […] . . . → Read More: cartoon life: Some foods I just can’t abide any longer

cartoon life: Really it is no solution at all.

Google+, otherwise quite good, is broken on mobile devices, where I used it. I had been, consequently, otherwise distracted by a mobile app called Plag. This post earned nearly 5,000 shares. Whereas this extreme, Swiftian, despairing and evil idea gained 180 shares and earned a lot of outrage and engagement.Filed under: comment, political Tagged: Despair and […] . . . → Read More: cartoon life: Really it is no solution at all.

cartoon life: The CPC: sycophants or manipulators?

Copyright free to use

Something I can’t figure out, is that if the CPC can track down one teen girl from her Facebook page, and eject her from a Conservative rally, because she wore a Liberal pin in the Facebook photo, that they couldn’t vet the history of potential candidates who pee in . . . → Read More: cartoon life: The CPC: sycophants or manipulators?

cartoon life: Technology: ups and downs

   I scooped this from someone’s Tumblr post, and lost the link. Credit is due. But anyway, I thought that that remarkable downturn in civilian and military deaths was interesting. Technology and medical advances are responsible. More and more victims survive and survive with wounds, damage and handicaps where previously they would have died.

cartoon life: Saving an iPad screen from Crazy Glue

 

Richard says, “Just doin’ my job!”

  Some time in the last month I used a tube of Crazy Glue for a quick repair. Somehow during that event, I managed to glue my fingers together. The tube spurted out an excess of glue, missing the intended target and covering my fingers. I had . . . → Read More: cartoon life: Saving an iPad screen from Crazy Glue

cartoon life: Stephen Harper Kills YouTube

You know what, I get it that YouTube will run ads and targeted ads is a clever algorithm. But I’m avoiding this service recently. 

The political negative attack ads on behalf of Harper and the CPC show up every time. I know I can skip anything after the first second, and I do. Even . . . → Read More: cartoon life: Stephen Harper Kills YouTube

cartoon life: My stone age blood

The Prothrombin 20210 Allele is apparently traceable to some 20,000 years ago. This is late Pleistocene. This is late Stone Age. Hunter gatherer’s. My ancestors have been in Europe a very long time.

First records of my family in Italy are from the late 1800’s, the house on Borgo Nouvo, in Monteleone. Borgo Nouvo means: . . . → Read More: cartoon life: My stone age blood

cartoon life: After two years. Zazzle earns me $100.

I has a question?

There are threads at the Zazzle forum asking how much do people earn. Nobody responds with an actual number. “Enough”, or “I do okay” isn’t an adequate response.

Well, here it is after two years; maybe 500 images, over 1,000 products, perhaps 1500 product views, a Zazzle storefront that . . . → Read More: cartoon life: After two years. Zazzle earns me $100.

cartoon life: Stop waking me up I’m trying to sleep

The digitizer on this iPad has some brain dead spots, it seems, where Pencil in Paper looses its brain. Either it’s Pencil, some sensitive coding in the app or the digitizer, or memory, or processor speed on this 3G iPad. So the black line work was done in Paper with the new fancy stuff . . . → Read More: cartoon life: Stop waking me up I’m trying to sleep

This iPad has been displaying some odd problems with apps crashing, it seems, when they try to access memory, for instance Sketches app when saving, ScannerPro just after it takes the picture, when it frames it up. Paper too, when browsing through books of drawings.

We had the great delight to be able to stay in a small apartment in Paris for just a few days, down some maze-like streets a short walk away from Le Mouffetard.
