Life Can Be Good :)

Offen I sit watching TV and I'll look into the computer/radio room and think how lucky I am. 

I've had a lot of bad luck in my life and since I was able to purchase a new car and got completely new radios for the new car. I had to wait until I received a tax return to be able to purchase my icom radio. I saved every cent I could and was able to purchase the radio I wanted even thou before hand I didn't own a HF radio even thou I had a licence. My first radio I used was a cheap Chinese FDC radio which I had a couple of the local 2m repeaters programmed into it. It then took a couple of months to save up so I could buy my truly first amateur radio which was a Wouxun KG-UV6D, a duel band VHF/UHF hand-held radio. This radio I used as a portable and as a in-car radio. I then saved up and finally got myself a in-car radio. I have to save if I want to buy anything and this means it allows me to do some research and thus enabling me to purchase the radio I really want.

I may not be a smart person and have been told I'm dumb and have always had problems with people believing what I say. I understand the reason but only to a point. I'm always reminded that I'm stupid which does get me down but then I look at my life now and think these people are jealous of what I have. I've worked hard for what I have now and I try to be money smart. Again not an area I was good at, in fact not much I am good at in other peoples eyes but again I can look at what I have now and think I'm lucky.

So as I sat here I think I have had some luck in my life and this brightens up ones life :)

Reading Smart Books

Started reading a couple of books I have here and it hit me, I really don't know much :) The stuff I know is very basic. I seem to be lucky and get around most things. I can keep my computers working, just, and I can do the same with my radios but just. Does this bother me, NO, not really. it's not like I'm having to keep important services on the air or anything like that. I'm keeping myself online or on the air. If I stuff up something it only effects myself and no one else. No stress with that.
Yes I know a little about things to get by and to me that's what's important. Keeping myself online and/or on the air. This has nothing to do with low self esteem it has to do with knowing your own limits and not doing things I don't know anything about. There is nothing like make yourself out to be the best of everything as you can always be found out down the track. Plus if you fail people ask how can you fail when your meant to know about it. Some times it's good to play dumb, sit back and listen. I find this to be the best thing, plus it's not like anyone takes any notice of what I say anyhow. But it's good to sit back and when they stuff things up it's not your arse on the line. Call it playing safe, I call it being smart. Yep I am smart :)
I know I know a bit about some things, I'm not stupid like some might think. I just love sitting back and watch others. I will not repeat myself over and over, I will say it once and if you decide not to listen then that's fine by me. But don't come crawling back to me when you stuff up and hoping I can fix it. I offer my services once, you know that I'm good at what I do and if you decide not to use me or think you can do better go for it. But like I said if you stuff it up don't expect me to fix it and make you look good.
Anyhow back to my reading. Reading books I don't understand :) Happy days I say.

Accounts I never Knew About Come Back To Bite

This morning I received an email from a company asking me to remove one of my blog posts dating back to around 2007. There is a request that the post was offensive. This was very strange as I didn't even use this service for my blogging. I tried to log into it using the normal username and password but couldn't. I ended up requesting a reset password which I couldn't do as I didn't know the email address used to open it.
After a lot of searching I found out about this service. It went back to the days when VOX was around, somehow all my old blog posts were transferred to this service. So I had to really go looking for my old VOX details which I did find. I had to reset the password and when I was able to get into the account I found some very disturbing entries. There was a lot I never posted and were past the time I even used VOX. Back when VOX was closing down I didn't bother about using a blogging service and changed over to my then Mobile Me account and used Apple's iWeb program to post anything on my then blog. These days I just use my website for this which I don't really bother too much about. 
I have no idea who was posting things on this blogging site and for what was posted has sickened me. I have removed ALL posts from this service and changed the login and password info to a password even I wouldn't remember, a 64 bit password which I have not saved. So I won't be able to post anything on it and hopefully no one else won't be able to either. This has no made me wonder about a few other things. I've spent the last hour changing all my passwords on ALL the accounts I use either daily or weekly and have closed off anything I no longer use. 
I've Googled myself to check to see what else is out there I need to know about. I just don't understand why anyone would be bothered to do this and waste their time. I'm a no body, I'm no one important and it's not like I know anything about anything anyhow. In saying this I do have my ideas but I couldn't see some of them wasting their time doing this even trout it would strengthen there position and make them look good and me bad. But then again they did open up accounts just to harass and send nasty emails to me, so anything is possible. But again why bother, move on with your life, you have what you wanted. I just wish I was smarter to have seen it years ago, but I'm not a smart person. But again I couldn't see them being bothered to do this. I'm giving them too much credit I think. 
Anyhow I know it's too late now but that account has been closed and everything deleted. No much more I can do about it now but it does make start to make sense with a few things. And to think this may have came from family. Not that I'm apart of the family anymore as this was made very clear to me many years ago. It's a shame but nothing I can do now to fix any of it. not when you find these type of things. 
Oh well the earth is still moving and life goes on.

Life's Not Easy

Sitting back relaxing.
 
I'm in the process of rethinking the interests and the groups I'm apart of in my life and think if I'm an important part of them and if not leave. I just think that my knowledge is going to waste with some of them or anything I say just gets ignored. I've always tried to help everyone and don't give people the wrong information.
 
I also don't like wasting my own time. I want to be able to take whatever I learn and use it elsewhere (if needed). I find it pointless learning something to find I can't use it elsewhere. 
I love what I'm doing in my life and I love helping others but I don't want to be treated like an idiot, which I feel at times this is happening. 
When I was working I worked very hard to learn everything I can and spent over 20 years working in one industry and was very heart broken when I couldn't work in that field anymore. I've slowly trying to build myself back up and it's a hard road for me. I've sat down and studied very hard in getting my radio licence again. It took a lot out of me and the headaches almost had me pulling out but I put myself through it. 
My medical issues have taken their toll on me and I've been fighting depression off and on for years. being able to play with my radios is helping a lot and even thou I do things very different to others it just keeps me busy. 

 

I just feel that my time is being wasted. I don't like being treated like an idiot and when you have to sit back and listen to others that you know don't know as much as you do it becomes very hard to sit there. It's even worse when some that don't know seem to have control and are listened to over myself.

I love this hobby and I think I will work at making my station the best there is in my area and if others don't give a shit then so be it. They don't know what their missing out on. I've tried to make my station a complete communications base that can be used in times of emergencies by all emergency services but because there is some that make me look like an idiot this is going to be a hard task, which is a shame.

Music 24 and Tunein Radio App Issues

I have noticed that there is an issue when you save your cutom URL in the Tunein Radio app. It seems they have changed the way custom URL are saved and therefore don't play after they have being saved in your favorites lists. The app will still play your custom URL's but just won't work if you save them. This means you have to enter in the custom URL every time.

I'm hoping this will be fixed soon. I will post here once this little problem is fixed.
