Tello can be had for free

Signup with my referral link, and I don’t have to pay my bill.

One signup is $10 Tello Dollars. Does that mean it almost pays for the $10 plan? Thanks tax. But you don’t need two signups a month, only one. For a while. Two the very first month. It’s around $11 after tax for me, don’t recall the exact amount, so that would leave $9 or so if two people signup.

That’s better then Boost Mobile’s “free” thing. You need their shitty app, and you have to do shit, possibly watch ads, and play games. I’d rather do neither.

So maybe I should redirect all my domains to my referral link. That’s a better use then what they have on it now.

Tello works fine for me, I barely use any data. Calling and texting works fine. So does the 4G LTE, Apple extorts budget MVNOs, so it may never get 5G. I can’t figure out how they get away with all the crap they do. Microsoft didn’t get away with everything they did forever. But politics is all about battling the other side, so good luck. Apple may be safe, as long as each side continues to battle each other.

5G would most likely work just fine on iPhones if Apple didn’t artificially limit it. They want money from Tello. Hopefully 4G LTE never gets shutdown. By the time it does, might be time for a new phone anyways. And if Apple is still extorting people, it may be time for a can and some strings.

But no worries, all electronics may get fried in the near future. Solar storms or something. So who cares. That’ll be a bummer for Apple, and the greedy politicians.

WebHorizon not recommended

I believe I’ve waited long enough for them to tell me how my account was hacked instantly, they told me nothing. I got a refund.

But I pointed the domains to their server, and it had some PHP script that is put on compromised sites. I didn’t upload anything. I was getting an internal server error, and eventually it loaded, had no idea what it was, or how it got on there.

Another domain, in a different folder, same thing.

So either, using DuckDuckGo’s email, is a bad idea, and somebody got the password for my account, or the server was hacked. Can’t tell you which, they never said anything else.

They will most likely say I uploaded the suspicious PHP file, you’ll see on my drives, I don’t and never have had it. If they didn’t refund and delete it so quickly, they could have determined I didn’t upload it.

It’s possible in a server log somewhere, it says I never uploaded anything.

Using CloudLinux doesn’t mean it’s secure and can’t be hacked. Anything can be hacked. But I can see, their hosting is no more secure, then using a self managed VPS, possibly less secure, but you’ll have to email them and ask what happened. Now if they got the password because it was sent to a DuckDuckGo email that is forwarded to my real email, then DuckDuckGo isn’t secure.

It’s on shared hosting, from a different provider. Nothing hacked yet. Only one site is using WordPress, other sites are static. I won’t name the host, as then somebody will say I work for the other host or some bullshit.

The last reply was 21 d 22 hr ago. And the ticket is closed of course.

The other possibility is whatever is sending the email with my account password, was comprised. Or somewhere along the line, somebody could read it.

Looking at the first ticket I sent, looks like it was some kind of file manager. I don’t recall much, 21 days is a long time ago.

All I know, is I didn’t put that file manager on there. Why would I want a file manager? They even said the index.php isn’t default. You’d think they would be interested in what happened.

Their hosting might be cheaper then the provider I have now, and have a better location. Too bad it came with a file manager, that is installed to hacked sites.

Still cheaper then BuyVM, so who cares. I’m too lazy to manager a server, and bots make it slow.

Bummer

Looks like my host “fixed” their server. Instead of showing Cloudflare’s IP, it now shows the client’s IP.

That means if you get the IP of the server, you can easily bypass Cloudflare’s firewall. Yes, I could put my IP in the .htaccess instead. But then I have to remember to update that file, and Cloudflare.

So perhaps the bots can hammer wp-login.php now.

No idea if they only allow Cloudflare connecting IPs for sites using Cloudflare. Doing so by the firewall, could be hard. As that might apply to the entire server, and all sites, including those not using Cloudflare.

I’ll keep the workaround in my wp-config.php file, according to a simple PHP file to echo the IP address, it is indeed showing my IP now, so that workaround probably isn’t needed anymore.

That will make the stats show actual IP addresses though, instead of Cloudflare IP addresses.

Since it’s shared hosting, they can fix the bots hammering wp-login.php right?

And it looks like I need to email them. They changed my PHP version again. WordPress told me. Fucking annoying. I don’t want old PHP.

Hmm, if the server gets hacked because they changed my PHP version, it isn’t my fault right?

Hopefully what you use doesn’t require a newer PHP, as then your site will be dead, until you manually change it back.

RIP Chairman Meow

I think it was Tuesday, they murdered him. I call it murder, because that’s what it feels like when they put your pet down.

No crying yet, perhaps I don’t give a fuck anymore.

He was probably the best cat she ever had. He was super friendly. He liked sitting in my lap, until something happened, either I got fatter, or he couldn’t get comfortable anymore. He got mad at my sister’s dog Lilly for sitting in my lap once.

He couldn’t get in the litter box anymore, so was shitting on the floor, possibly pissing on the floor too, apparently they have to replace the floor in that room.

A vet decided to give him medicine for pain, that cats shouldn’t take. It gives them kidney failure. If you have a pet, lookup the medicine before paying for it. Or consult somebody else. You’d think the vet would know things. Apparently that one didn’t.

I forgot to see him before he died. The last day I had to do so, I forgot. That shows how much I care, apparently I don’t. I was playing with Bodhi, apparently he wanted me to play non stop. Not sure seeing him would do any good though, doesn’t sound like he was doing too good.

Oh I think I might have had a dream, about saying goodbye to Chairman Meow. Hard to say, I barely remember some dreams.

WordPress is fine, if the server is configured right

No more servers for me, that is that needs to be managed by me.

Somehow this shared hosting is faster. Apparently they know what they are doing, and I sure as hell don’t.

Kind of funny actually.

Just use MEGA for your storage needs. I don’t believe in storage providers that offer life time plans. Unless it’s a massive amount, it’s not sustainable. I’d rather pay MEGA, as I know they have a monthly income of money.

Too bad I didn’t backup ParanormalTom.com before canceling. I found an old backup though, so enjoy.

Paying $4 a month for shared hosting is well worth it. You don’t need to be smart, for fast sites. Cloudflare might be helping as well. I had BuyVM’s DDoS protection, which was another $3 a month.

Only one downside, only Cloudflare IPs are in the log. I fixed WordPress, the static sites don’t really matter. I searched for the problem, somebody with Drupal had the same issue, so I added what they said to add but to wp-config.php, now the IP is right.


$_SERVER['REMOTE_ADDR'] = $_SERVER["HTTP_CF_CONNECTING_IP"] ? $_SERVER["HTTP_CF_CONNECTING_IP"] : $_SERVER["REMOTE_ADDR"];

That’s what I added. The LiteSpeed Cache plugin said not to use Cloudflare plugin, so I’m not. That only fixes WordPress, not the access log. Don’t think I can fix the access log, and I’m too fucking lazy to email them. Didn’t even want to email them to get SSH access. But SSH makes life easy.

The contact form can remain on that site, I deleted it after the backup. I just set the contact form to under attack, maybe less spam will show up in WordPress. It never emailed that junk to me, luckily. Still wasting system resources, every time they submit their spam.

Oh and if you access that site, not from Cloudflare, it should block you. You can do so with .htaccess.

Now, if it was a VPS, or dedicated server, you could make a firewall rule to do it.

ParanormalTom.com is gone

Looks like I don’t have a backup of it at all. Going to login to BuyVM, but they probably deleted my backups. Oh well.

That means, it too can be a static site. I’ll buy a cheap theme for it instead, too lazy to convert the old theme. Just buy a better HTML theme.

No I don’t like WordPress. Too much work. If it’s static HTML, I don’t have to update anything. Only ExtraVM does. Is uploading images with rsync supposed to be super slow?

Guess I should have got closer hosting.

Oh and Cloudflare made my other site faster. ExtraVM said to use Cloudflare for HTTPS DDOS protection.

I should have been using Cloudflare with BuyVM, and not paid for the DDOS protection. That wouldn’t solve the needing to manage the server problem though. I ain’t paying for server management, well you can get some kind of cloud management crap for cheaper.

But it’ll probably cost more then $4 or whatever ExtraVM costs.

That may have been stupid

Got angry and possibly depressed, and canceled my BuyVM server. Luckily, I forgot to pay it early anyways. So didn’t lose much money.

Didn’t want to manage it anyways. Now if the server gets hacked it’s their problem.

But speaking of hacked, the first host I tried, my site came hacked. I didn’t do anything, except point the DNS to it, confused to why it was getting a 500 internal server error.

This host only has servers in Texas in the US. So we’ll see how long my site remains online, republicans claim republicans allow freedom of speech, not if it’s insulting republicans. Trump went after an app because he got butt hurt.

I should have just got their Germany location, but when World War 3 starts, it might be impossible to access anything outside the US.

I would have went with SmallWeb, but their uptime link is dead. The host I went with is ExtraVM. And I could have saved 25% off the first month, oh well. I had to request SSH access. My key wasn’t working, probably a permission problem, I just deleted the .ssh folder I created, and used ssh-copy-id.

Only 10 GB of space, it’s the cheapest plan. So no more videos on my other blog, unless they are tiny. I could upload the videos somewhere else, but that’s too much work, and I hate YouToot.

I also hate cPanel, the reason I didn’t go with some other host, they also have a limit on the number of domains, ExtraVM doesn’t. I’ve never used this control panel before.

No recent backup for my paranormal site, so I may do nothing with it. I might have an old backup. But WordPress is a pain. They won’t suspend for resource abuse, if it’s all static, hopefully.

Yes, a VPS would be cheaper, but you get to manage the server. No thanks. I’d rather sit around and watch TV, then manage a server.

I won’t name the other host, I have no idea what happened. If my account somehow got hacked instantly, or their server is hacked. I used my Duck email, didn’t use that on ExtraVM.

All the other domains I added, also hacked on that host. I suspect the server was compromised. And every new site, gets that PHP file manager crap. After I saw it, I removed the domain pointer to their server, and canceled it. They surprisingly gave me a refund, it was cheap, so wasn’t expecting a refund. That’s never happened to me, that I signed up for hosting, and it came hacked. Hopefully they figure out what happened. I don’t think they are a bad host, anything can be hacked.

And ExtraVM has some bad links too. But I don’t know how much SmallWeb is in US dollars, might be the same or more. So there isn’t really any point in using them. The company that owns it is managed by somebody else now. Don’t know if that’s good or bad. I’m not using GitHub Pages, no idea how, and I don’t think it has enough space. Not to mention, that’s Microsoft. The way I upload my static sites, is very easy. It uses SSH and rsync. I just had to modify my scripts, and it’s good to go.

No Nextcloud anymore, but that’s why it cost over $12 a month.

That means no online backup of my photos. Unless I find something worth paying for. I probably won’t look, I was originally going to use Amazon, but Amazon Drive is going to be gone. Does Amazon Photos support videos too? And RAW files? And can I pay for storage or is it Prime only? I think I’ll risk losing all my photos.

Need to get a NVMe enclosure that can contain two or more NVMe SSDs. Use it for backup. If you buy a cheapo brand, you can get 2 TB drives for not too much. I don’t care about the speed. In that case, SATA might be cheaper, but bigger.

Do they make an enclosure that’s Thunderbolt, but also USB? Not USB 4, desktop doesn’t have that. So Thunderbolt of some kind, and USB 3 of some kind. No hardware RAID needed, I only use software RAID. But if it’s a software RAID, it probably won’t be compatible with Mac mini and Linux PC, one or the other. Since the Linux PC is cheaper to replace most likely, I should probably just get a USB NVMe enclosure. Not to mention, a Raspberry Pi can probably access it. It’s using Linux.

Jekyll

Going to switch my other site to that, I already imported the posts, from WordPress.

But it seems to generate faster then the static generator I was using for WordPress.

The theme will be different, and I probably won’t do much to the theme I found. I’m too lazy.

But it’ll be a while before I can switch, it requires lots of work.

And it looks like I’m using the wrong paginate plugin, nice.

I also might get too lazy to finish the switch. So I might just leave the other site dead, with no new posts.

Might have to modify the WordPress import script, as I don’t want all the data it puts in the post files. And apparently the feed plugin, you can’t hide certain stuff. If it puts that email in it, I’ll get a lot of spam. Nobody emails that email. Rather keep it that way.

She knows nothing about me

Is that supposed to be funny or sad? She’s known me my entire life, but clearly doesn’t know anything about me, nor understand me.

Posting on my other blog takes too long, almost two hours to generate the static site now. I guess an update in Manjaro made it slower, perhaps the kernel update did. Used to take around 50 minutes.

Into the Deep

They have horrible people in Denmark too. At least he got a life sentence.

Apparently the filming, helped convict him.

No idea if they have the death penalty in Denmark. Either way, life locked up is worse, now he gets to be bored till he dies. Will he be the same in his next life? Perhaps they should also keep him alive forever. Locked up, and alive forever. That’s worse then the death penalty.

Apparently they speak English in Denmark. I’d move there rather they speak English or not. Trump would probably have a bad time in Denmark. The ladies might be hairy in Denmark, depending on where you go in Denmark.

Oh wait, there’s a woman, on a documentary about the conspiracies Trumpets believe, that has hairy arm pits. I’ll pass though, she said she’s 48 years old. And she loves Trump. And lies.

Some guy that watches Fake News(Fox News), told me not to watch anything about conspiracies, yet he does so. So why shouldn’t I watch stuff about Aliens? When it makes way more sense then the shit on Fake News. An empty massive universe makes no sense. Not to mention, the military claims they can’t tell the difference between a weather balloon and a flying saucer, I don’t believe them.

Now if you’ll excuse me, I have a raft to catch.

BuyVM really is crap

At some point, the block storage stopped working, and /home is on it, so this site was a 404 error.

Is there enough space on the SSD for /home? As I can’t login by SSH either, since the key is on the block storage. I could just mount that folder, to a folder on the SSD.

But SSH won’t help. You have to power the fucker off, detach the block storage, attach, and then boot. If you just power off, and try booting, it won’t boot.

If I knew a provider with block storage for as cheap, I’d consider switching my host.

Does their API support detaching volumes? As you could make a script to check if the site is a 404 error, then you know the block storage is probably broken, and it can fix it for you. I’m lazy though.

I only know how to fix it, because I emailed support once. But they should really fix their shit.

Manjaro + custom kernel = bad time

Apparently the linux-tkg kernel I was using, had issues, I compiled it with mostly the default options. Perhaps the scheduler, I think it was PDS, has issues.

I froze my computer by trying to switch the TTY. I call it a terminal, but I think the correct word is TTY. I then clicked the button on USB switcher, and then again, but no lights on mouse or keyboard, so computer was completely locked up.

Being able to switch the TTY is good, in case something freezes, but computer isn’t completely locked up.

Well, I learned my lesson, don’t use a custom kernel in Manjaro.

Firefox in Flatpak in Xorg is still broken, no idea what’s wrong with it. If hardware acceleration is enabled, it looks like this.

Firefox in Xorg with Flatpak with hardware acceleration used to work fine. Probably a Manjaro problem, as if you search for the problem, you’ll find nothing. And an update broke it. I’m too lazy to switch to unstable Manjaro, and see if it fixes it. Also, I don’t want unstable.

Manjaro issues

Well, I can see why people don’t recommend Manjaro now. I went to the bathroom, looked like it was on lock screen, could move the cursor, but couldn’t login, couldn’t change to a terminal, even ctrl + alt + del did absolutely nothing.

It could be a KDE and/or Wayland problem.

Either way, that may be my last straw. And the distro may now be switched. Think I should use something not based on Arch Linux, but I don’t know what. I don’t know if newer packages is going to be more stable. Therefore using Arch Linux, or something else based on it, might not fix anything.

I could just go back to Xorg. Does Firefox Flatpak work in it yet? Probably not.

I had to click the button on case, to turn it off, and back on. Since it decided the keyboard isn’t going to work anymore. The keyboard must work, I’m typing this.

Maybe the Local thing for WordPress, is fucking it up somehow.

But since I want AMD GPU support in Stable Diffusion, that limits the distros I can use. I don’t exactly want to use Ubuntu, but it might be more stable then Manjaro. Which is pretty fucking sad, that Manjaro is worse then Ubuntu.

And if I want newer packages, all I have to do is switch to the unstable repo.

That’s the first time that has happened.

“Could not find the Plasmoid for Plasma” maybe that’s the problem. Or maybe not.

Perhaps KDE is buggy shit. Gnome is too hard to use. XFCE isn’t great for games. Don’t really play games on desktop anymore though. Switching to unstable, might fix KDE. You’ll get updates faster.

Server might be cancelled by next month

Or maybe just the one site that gets hammered by bots will be deleted or converted to a static site.

Either bots, or almost all the humans block Jetpack. Either way, not worth paying for.

But paying for WordPress.com is really not worth it, that’s $7 a month for the cheapest plan, if you want to use your own domain. This server is only $12.50 a month. A one time fee to use a custom domain might be worth it, but not $7 per month.

Not all the sites are back, thanks to slow ass DNS. But you can edit /etc/hosts, that’s what I did temporally to access CyberPanel. Maybe the DNS will be updated tomorrow. If not, that’ll keep the server fast, if the bot’s DNS doesn’t resolve it.

Wurm Online works on Steam Deck

That is the launcher from their site, and what I did survived a system update.

Use pacman with the -r option, and put it in your home folder, or micro SD card.

Partial how to on my other site. Assuming I remembered all the commands I ran. The part it doesn’t have, is downloading Wurm Online from their site and extracting it to your home folder. And assumes you ran passwd.

Only posted a link here, as the other site isn’t viewed by humans. Perhaps it’s blacklisted. Well, the title isn’t very helpful for that post.

I just updated SteamOS, it still works, as expected.

I read about the -r pacman option on some site, I forgot what the option was, so I ran pacman –help, there is two – in that, but LibreOffice Writer is a fucking dick.

After running that, I ran pacman -S -h or something like that. That isn’t SteamOS only, I can do it in Manjaro too. The root -r option.

Probably works for Lutris too, if you don’t want the Flatpak version. But if I install too much stuff, I’ll be out of space on my /home, only around 4 GB free.

It’s Linux, the game works in Linux, you just might have to fiddle with it.

I’d make a video of it running, but I’m lazy. That is a video with my phone, not a screen recorder.

Verizon has no 5G at my address

I finally got my own cell service, US Mobile uses Verizon, at least for eSIMs. And it’s more like $6 or so more then T-Mobile’s cheapest prepaid plan, there’s a two dollar service fee, then regulatory/taxes. So it’s $12 before anything, around $16 after the fees. But you get unlimited minutes and texts.

T-Mobile’s price might be $10 though, they might include all the fees in it. I’m too lazy to switch to T-Mobile. It was kind of a pain to port my number, she did it wrong. You have to do something on the line with the number that is being ported. Might be easy to port now, if they gave me the info.

My phone doesn’t get 5G in my apartment, or even outside the building.

So thanks for the flier with Verizon 5G Home Internet, it’s useless at this address. Just like their site says, I confirmed it on my phone.

In my apartment, it’s slower then T-Mobile 5G, over 100 Mbps download, and I forgot what the upload was, maybe 15 Mbps. I think the upload on T-Mobile 5G was around 50 Mbps when I did a speed test who knows when. The download on T-Mobile 5G is 200 Mbps or so.

Not running anymore speed tests, it uses too much data. Even if I have a 5G signal, I won’t run a speed test. Only 1 GB of data. And my Comcast went out two days in a row, right after getting my own limited data cell plan. Possibly because I was uploading a ton of data, and Comcast’s network sucks ass for uploading. Had to upload my pics folder to Amazon. Since my Nextcloud is gone.

They have new unlimited basic plans, US Mobile, but I think the cheapest is $35 a month. And I can’t find on the page how much data till they make it unusable. Not paying $35. If I run out of data, no data till next month. If you call my magicJack number when I have no WiFi, and no data, my phone won’t ring.

Who needs data when you are home almost all the time? Hmm, I think their texting + calling only plan is $8 per month, that might be $12 per month after the fees. T-Mobile is a better deal, for $10, you get data too. In case you aren’t at home or on WiFi.

I did get a 5G signal, when on the way to her house. Didn’t do anything though. So there’s 5G in this shithole city in some places.

My phone is on low data mode. It claims I’ve used over 2 GB of data. It said that as soon as I got the eSIM. And it only says that for the personal line. The reason I know it’s a lie, is it says I’ve used data on Pandora for this “current” period. I haven’t used Pandora for quite a while. Last reset March 24, 2020. I should have reset it when I got the eSIM. So I haven’t used Pandora for two years? Nice, I haven’t been on a walk by myself for a long time.

Cheap shared hosting not for me

Mayo Host has issues, I had issues right away. I had to email to get my account activated. Then I found out no secure way to upload files other then the web browser. Good luck uploading a 1.1 GB backup. The limit is 500 MB.

Oh and two nights in a row, the server seems to get overloaded or something. Both this site and my paranormal site went down last night.

The control panel gets slow too.

I’ll cancel it eventually. This site is now back on BuyVM, a cheaper plan, they gave me credit, when I cancelled. BuyVM is more reliable. They have the best terms of any provider. If it’s legal, you can host it.

It’s the 1 GB plan. Sucks, Cyberpanel doesn’t let me create limits. I need to set a CPU limit of 20% or so, so I don’t get suspended. Well, I think they’ll just limit the server to 20-25%.

There’s no DNS, FTP, or mail on the server. You can’t do that with DirectAdmin, or maybe you can, too much work with DirectAdmin.

The DNS is hosted by Porkbun.

SFTP works fine, as root, I went into the sites directory, and got the username in there, and then made a authorized_keys file, with a SSH public key in it. The SSH key thing in Cyberpanel doesn’t work, perhaps it’s because of the type of key.

This entire site was uploaded using rsync. So it’s working.

I wanted a lightweight setup, lighter then having DNS and FTP and mail on the server. I have a third party email provider.

I might email my host, and ask how to limit my server to 20% CPU. Not finding what I want when searching.

If you want shared hosting, anything is probably more reliable then Mayo Host or Host Mayo. Like RamNode, BUYSHARED, Nexus Bytes.

If you hate cPanel, Nexus Bytes has DirectAdmin hosting, without getting a reseller plan. I decided not to make another account on another site, and just use my credit for another VPS. I was thinking about getting a VPS or shared hosting from Nexus Bytes. They could be more reliable then BuyVM. But I still have credit left, so next month I don’t have to pay anything. And possibly a little credit left after next month too.

BuyVM ended up being $7 a month, I got backups and a DDoS protected IP.

Good news, Cyberpanel has backups too, I’m pretty sure my backup space supports SFTP. I’d rather not restore the entire server if I don’t have to.

For my photo online backup, I’m using Amazon Cloud Drive. Better then maintaining Nextcloud. And I’m not sure 1 GB of RAM is enough for all my sites and Nextcloud.

Mayo Host claimed they are moving to a better server. And they’ll fix the FTP over TLS then. I don’t like waiting, and will it even fix the nightly downtime? I can fix my own server now. Don’t have to wait for somebody else to do it. Unless there’s a problem outside of my control, like with the node, or network.

The Mac mini will be uploading all my files to Amazon. I don’t pay for Prime, I’m on somebody else’s, so I have to pay $7 per month for 1 TB of space. The Prime thing is photos only, so limited space for videos. 1 TB of anything I want to upload.

Nobody likes Linux users, so you have to use a different OS to upload stuff. They think you’ll upload 1 PB of photos if they release Linux software. Not everybody. And I’m paying for 1 TB, so they should give those paying for a fixed amount of storage, a Linux client. At least network shares are allowed to be added to the Amazon app.

If that stops working, I’ll just get an external drive for the mini, and copy the photos to it. Hmm, they might not allow that, if they don’t allow network shares in the future. That’ll be a bummer.

Even Nexus Bytes doesn’t allow you to run certain stuff on your server, some legal stuff, like a game server. Why not? They have dedicated core(s) plans. I guess their DDoS protection sucks. That is a public game server. BuyVM doesn’t care. At least not on the dedicated core plans.

BuyVM is no longer reliable

They put my support ticket on hold, and never bothered responding. It was down for around five hours. They didn’t bother to boot it when the server was working again. When I got home, I tried booting it again, and it worked that time.

Might not have been down for five hours if they booted it.

I might move this site to my other server, since that server doesn’t seem to go down.

This isn’t the first time BuyVM has stopped working, it’s been going down a lot.

Just look at UptimeRobot.

First time going down this month, looks like April is when it was going down the most.

No, I’m not writing a script, to try constantly booting my server when it’s offline. That also might make them mad. Just tell them, they don’t boot it, so you had to write a script to do it.

They might have the cheapest block storage, but it’s useless if your server is going down for five hours randomly. That is why I haven’t switched hosts, nobody has block storage for as cheap. A lot of hosts, don’t even offer block storage.

RamNode only offers SSD block storage, and it’s expensive as fuck.

If they aren’t going to provide support anymore, not sure it’s worth paying for anymore. I could just ditch all hosting, and have no sites. Just keep the domains, and the email service.

An online backup of your photos is a good idea. But not sure it’s worth the trouble.

Johnny Utah

Bodhi’s brother came home today, Bodhi isn’t exactly happy about it. Came from the same breeders, I think the same mom and dad.

My mom’s dog, not mine. I can’t have a puppy. Too much work.

He likes chewing on everything, even the couch. And my pants. I was eating ice cream, and he wanted some. He put his paws on the couch, trying to get up there probably. Lilly puts her paws on the couch like that, but she’s a little dog. Lilly doesn’t want to play with him.

Bodhi barks a lot with the puppy.

He barked less at some other people that came to her house. He didn’t even bring me a toy. He might be frustrated, cause he doesn’t know how to play with the puppy.

But he can play tug a war with him, and then he won’t accidentally bite me. I won’t learn my lesson about playing tug a war with him, even if he bites me on accident, he has more then once.

Might mean Bodhi will play less with me, isn’t that a good thing? Then I can sit silently and do nothing.

If the puppy sits by you, he doesn’t want pets, he wants to chew on you. I know because I pet him when he did that, and he started chewing on me.

I was trying to get him to shake or put his paw up, well I put my hand on the ground by him, and he thought it was a chew toy. He did put one paw up, then the other, didn’t have any treats though to try and reward him.

Can you even train a puppy right away? Potty training you can. But he doesn’t even know his name. And the way I get dogs to come to me, he doesn’t understand. So good luck teaching him to shake yet. He’ll learn it later, but not yet.

He likes kids, but I think the breeder has kids. In fact, he was their sons favorite puppy. He gave my nephew kisses.

Bodhi will give me a kiss, not sure how big of a kisser Bodhi is though. He doesn’t do it that often. But Sofie might have given me a kiss once. And I don’t think she gave anybody kisses. It was either a kiss or her nose, not sure which.

Meiko gave kisses, he trained me to walk with my hands up, but he’d get you if you forget. Or just lick your elbow. He was good at catching flies too. I think flies pissed him off, and he’d catch em and eat them. His mouth was perfect for catching flies.

Tonka would kiss babies when she was feeling better and younger. You could tell her to kiss the baby, and she would.

She did give me a bunch of kisses on my arm or arms. It was I think a couple months before she died. That’s why I think she knew what was going to happen. She needed to tell me she loves me. And that she knows I love her. That’s the entire point of everything, is love.

Dogs aren’t generally selfish to humans, but to other dogs they are. Bodhi doesn’t want the puppy to chew on his toys. He’s a puppy, but Bodhi still doesn’t want him to chew on his toys.

Somehow Buddy was fine with all the dogs we got. Not sure he played that much. He did like me petting him. Got Buddy, then Meiko, then Tonka, then Chibi. Chibi had a problem, but none of the big dogs did.

Buddy would chase cats. But must have eventually been fine. Well, the cat I think he pinned down, eventually moved out. Not sure how many times he did that. If they ran he’d chase them.

He couldn’t get the annoying cat out of my room, he’d try to get the cat to run away, but he wouldn’t. Then I had a cat meowing, and a dog whining. That cat would also knock stuff down if you didn’t get up and let him outside. He might have only tried chasing him out of my room once, he probably didn’t see the point in trying again.

T-Mobile Prepaid

T-Mobile Prepaid might be the fastest prepaid cell service, if you get good T-Mobile service. You get the same speed as postpaid T-Mobile apparently.

It’s $15 a month for 2.5 GB of data. If you don’t go anywhere, and have WiFi, that’s plenty of data.

Apparently some services the data can become useless if the tower is congested.

I don’t really want to pay $100 for a year of Boost Mobile, as it might not work, and I don’t think they give refunds. So you’d have to do a charge back. Cheap, but it might suck.

Somebody got a bad SIM card number on Boost Mobile, and they wouldn’t fix or replace it. I assume they entered the number right. Maybe not.

If you go with Boost Mobile, read their terms, if they don’t offer refunds, it probably isn’t worth the risk.

T-Mobile Prepaid, you can get an eSIM, no need to wait for a SIM card.

I’d rather pay monthly, so if it sucks, I can look for a new provider.

PureTalk USA has eSIM, but it’s $25 per month. And their customer service might suck.

You don’t want Unreal Mobile, they are owned by scammers now. Years ago, I ordered a data only plan, but it didn’t work, emailed them, got zero response. They took my money and ran.

If you pay with a PayPal Key or whatever it’s called, can you dispute charges on it like regular PayPal? If so, use that when paying for cell service. If they won’t fix the problem, dispute it. I use PayPal Key everywhere it works, my credit union debit card number keeps getting stolen somehow. I get $0 charges, like somebody is verifying the card. I think I’ve gotten a new debit card two times now.

porkbun.com doesn’t let you use PayPal Key, but you can use regular PayPal. No automatic domain renewals for me.

Hmm, that would really piss Boost Mobile off, if the service doesn’t work, or the SIM card number is bad, and you charged back. You’d be banned from that service. They’d probably fight it too. They want $100, and don’t care if you get anything.

Then again, all reviewers could be lying. So maybe Boost Mobile is fine. I’ll just pay $15 per month.
