Blogger Publishing for 8 Hours

I use blogger.com to publish this blog, I have posted about 3400 times, the blog is big. Two times in the last week I have published, and I go back hours later and it is still publishing.

I get on help, post, and post, I have no idea how to stop it. We have a designated server, we reboot the server, break the FTP, and blogger.com continues.

Firefox Problems

Firefox Problems
There are now two major ways of looking at web pages, the normal one is Internet Explorer and the techie new way is Firefox. This new viewer of web sites now has about 30 percent of the market.

It appears I need to make pages for this bad boy, and if the bad boy is happy, the Explorer will be happy… (Firefox is the bad boy.)

70 percent for Explorer by Microsoft and Firefox can have the rest.

I think the consumer, my readers; the general public suffers when people like me who like technical, computer savvy, fun toys….

When we play around too much….! What works on Explorer does not always work on Firefox.

I am trying to figure out what is Politically Correct, I think I must keep the Firefox people happy, and the Explorer people will be very happy.

Politically Correct people what me to walk on eggshell, they want me to use the perfect words, never stray and obey. Funny part it they think they are liberal, they are not liberal, they are so strict in what I have to do it annoys me, I am not so conservative I need to judge you if you use the wrong words.

I personally consider Firefox a nice toy, however many pieces are broken, and I must continually configure, fix, and repair. The toy is simple and boring to fix, I really do not want to sit around fixing configurations, and I do not get a rush by playing with a program. I am 110 percent sure I can learn any computer language fast, but it is very boring.

I have decided to change to using the Firefox Browser, not because I think it is better, I think it is slower, breaks too often, and confusing, they are not sharing and trying to work with everyone, they want to be Microsoft. However, because the MTV, too techie, need play toy world is using this play toy. I need to fix my web pages so this politically correct browser will accept them.

It does not forgive, it is strict, not liberal, it does not allow for any human errors.

KISS MY

K.I.S.S.

Keep It Simple Stupid

A techie would say first, … you are using the wrong version.



Updated and new version of FirefoxOk, my internet pages have problems, and this is why I am trying to use Firefox, to test and see if the pages work well. I am small guy; I am not Yahoo.com or Youtube.com.

I go to yahoo mail on Firefox and try to write Craig back, the compose part is missing, I refresh, reload, etc. What do I do, go to Explorer to reply to his emails. Yep, that is what I needed to do to do it now; my Mother would have been lost…




I am using Firefox today and first I cannot reply by email using Yahoo Mail to Craig at Travelvice.com.



I see someone posted a message on Youtube.com. I want to turn off this option on YouTube.com, I do not want to play. I do not want two blogs. I do not want to be social, but…. This is a quick way to get on you tube so I will take the path.

Where is the mosquito net video? I refresh, reload, etc and nothing works. Do I have to go open in Explorer to get the job done? Yep.

This is how life is folk, when you start a business, do the same job as your competition and when you can do the same, improve on it. All I want is the same same, not different first, and then show me the other toys.

I am very good at learning boring programs like Firefox; the world should not have to be techie to use a program or a look at my pages.

I was looking at an SEO page, Search Engine Optimization page, the print was so small I had to get my glasses. I thought, empathy impaired bunch of jerks.

I can understand Firefox not showing the HoboTraveler.com page badly, this make sense, However, not showing Yahoo and YouTube.com is weird. It is possible the Firefox people do not know things are missing on the page? How do you know something is not working if you cannot see it…? I know my pages, I can see when something is just missing, some techie in Gestapo methods made the decision. AOL does not need emails from Nigeria, the new world. Techie Politically Correct and Gestapo Techie Tactics. Play our way or we call you stupid.

I am good on computers, you go to Togo, Ghana West Africa and make pages on the fly over a cell phone connection. I can, can you? Trust me, if I do not have a hammer, I will make a rock work.

I think I sort of look like MacGyver.

Thailand Terrorist

Thailand Terrorist
It bad enough terrorist bomb innocent people, do they have to attack poor defenseless Trash Bins; I used the word Bin to acknowledge our mean older brothers way of talking.

I regularly drop trash on the ground and take great pride in my creative ways of being a litterbug. I would gladly throw all my trash in a can if there is one within 100 meters, if not, let her fly…
(Best Trashcan country is Estonia.)

I at one times considered a joke post, making a map of all the trashcans in the Khao San Road area of Bangkok. I am annoyed, the world wants me throw trash down, they must, or they would give me an easy solution to trash. Now, of all things, the super dependable 7-11 convenience stores of Khao San Road seem to have removed most of their trash bins.

The scoop is this, Terrorist put bombs in Trash Cans. I found this one off Khao San Road and was happy to find it; 7-11 is as far as I can figure to be one of the most trash responsible stores in Thailand.

There is the recycled tire trash bin that is cool, and I it find them in strange places, and Had Yai seems to be very up to snuff as a city.

As a rule of thumb, I only throw trash down inside a city or village, never in the countryside. Maybe I am helping the world to create jobs, however you do it, and if I drop it in the street somebody will someday come and pick it up, and go dump it in the river for me…

Popular places for trash, backs of trucks that almost hit me, in front of stores I do not like, hand to people, leave on the counter of the store. I for sure leave a lot of trash in front of the hotel, the hotel needs to have a trashcan or in front of the hotel is good enough for me.

I often hand trash to locals, here it is your country, you figure out what to do with it.

It is not good, terrorist are blowing up trash cans, I do hope they continue to blow themselves up, I like the trash cans, and the best justice in their cowardly deed is they die. I seen nothing brave about killing yourself up, fanatical yes, zealot yes, but brave no, I do think there is a Darwin joke here in this mix.

Quick get out of the pool.

This is a big lizard, just diagonally across form the Diamond Hotel at the bridge near Khao San Road.



This baby is huge, and live under that big sack. I have seen it two times now while roaming the area. This bag is full of cans from the street restaurant, I THINK… Suspicious way of having the bag… maybe easy to accidentally open. Nonetheless, the lizard lives behind this sack, on the canal, river or whatever this murky water thingy is near Khao San Road. If you walked out of the Police Station, looked at the Wat and turned right you could continue to walk until you go over a bridge. Stop and buy an ice coffee at the 7-11 and then go to the bridge, when you get to the Bridge cross the street, it look…. It is the same side of the street as the Wat.

My answer to the Thailand girl,-
- I think you eat them. -

There are the new beggars, bums in the neighborhood, there are the tramps, and there are the Hobos. There are hundreds of reasons to fall asleep on the sidewalk. I think the big one is, the person is sleepy.

Thai people like to joke, they were painting the wall in front of the Wat near Khao San Road across from the Police Station the other day, and so why not have some fun…



I think they all to color code them, so a person can remember…
- Hmm did I stop and look at this one, or maybe, did I give to this one on the last time around or was it another one. -

I solved the problem; I do not give at the office.

I do not recognize these two, they seem to be new on the Khao San Sleeping Team. The one with the paint around him is worrisome; he was sleeping too hard, and too dazed. The time of the painted one was about 3:00 in the afternoon, and I saw the same one earlier on the other side of street. You would think he was glued down, and maybe he was…

Number 1 Reason to Marry Thai Girl

Number 1 Reason to Marry Thai Girl
I have just returned from seven months in West Africa. I saw very few of the European flavor, in fact, almost everyone was black. I have been walking around in Thailand looking the many people of my tribe or a similar tribe….

White People have big noses, I mean huge, I keep looking in the mirror and checking…

Thailand people have small noses, the bridge of the nose is even recessed.

I have seen some children of the Farang a.k.a Foreigner marriages recently and was admiring the nose of the children. Darn, their noses are small and well formed, not these huge monstrous things of their father normally.

Want to get rid of that huge nose, what to have your offspring not genetically carry the trait, marry a Thai Girl. Note, you can also forget about having a son that is professional basketball player, sort of swimming against the current.

I hear rumors, if you marry a Thai or Filipino girl, you take them to Europe or USA, etc, all they do is sit and watch cartoons all day, just a rumor.

Khao San Road is a tourist street, full of tourist things, but it is also a Rites of Passage.

To say, I am a traveler, you want to have walked down Khao San Road, the streets of Lima Peru, San Jose Costa Rica, Tel Aviv etc and so on, maybe the Baghdad, or Cape Coast Ghana, the beaches of Goa,

I going to Katmandu… Bob Seger

Rites of Passage, like losing your girlfriend to a Yoga teacher in India. Alex Garland in his famous book and movie The Beach accurately describes Khao San Road as the….

Too much information, the future is here. Yippee.
Movies about Hotels, do I need this much information.
I hear complaints about advertisements. I hear complaints about my blog post, they says something like,
- There is too much. -

I 100 percent agree, I post too much and for sure, a person should not read them, I try to best to put titles so you can skip. The truth is this, a person, who wants what you are selling or talking about never wants you to stop. There is too much, this translated mean, I am bored, or not interested.

A guidebook has paper; it cost more money to print a bigger book.

A newspaper is paper; it cost more money to print a bigger newspaper.

The TV is per minute or second, advertisers pay by seconds for TV ads.

The future is here

I used to sell people homes, when showing home, the moment I saw any reluctance, I would say,
- Lets go and look at a different home. -

Sales people try to convince people to buy junk.
Why, I am clueless unless they only have one piece of junk.

Had a chat conversation with boy genius in India, a person-to-person conversation with a human. There is this paper mentality. Like somehow a webpage pays for paper. The cost for me to host a page of photos is at most about 1 penny per year. The cost is the time it takes to type words.

Therefore, the future of advertising will be more of a graduated growth.

Small taste, then a little more.
Another small taste, do you still want more?
Taste this, well you like our hotel, so go and see the movie.

One feature I know must be included in any Hotel site is a way for owners of hotels to post videos about their Hotel. I think this is a great way for too-smart-and-clever travelers to live for free in Hotel also…

Me and boy genius are working on a box, a place to put the TV on the page, we are also working to put Business Cards. We need to find the right corner in the taste section, then allow a person go eat the how bag.

I thought about this, I was searching in YouTube.com for the future of hotels. I see some Israeli swimming pools, Hotels, etc, and thought, hmm.. Israeli characters, swimming pools. Israeli girls in Bikinis, this is my type of video.

A well-made video does not need to be in English, this is the future, to understand that we can talk with photos or videos to people. Chinese people do not understand words, but a video.. Hook them with some words, and then show them the video.

Now, my complaint, more of bikinis please, Tel Aviv Beach is a target rich environment.

This is an example of the future of hotels, if you want, you will be able to see the longer and longer versions, because when you want something you want more, not less.



Ok, this is the cognitive dissonance, dysfunctional hook to the max method of advertising, talking about Israeli girls… ok.
