Default Done & Solved!

Amazing win to relate.
1. On the last possible day, unknown to us until she called, my partner and Board prez ordered a better mailbox.
2. Six weeks later we set an exact delivery time.
3. We alert our installer and he agrees to come the following day.
4. Delivery was Thursday. Installation was Friday.
5. Walked to the Post Office and asked them to come install their master locks. Expected this to take several days, if not weeks.
6. The Postman, Dan, found the new mailbox installed and began to transfer the master locks before the supervisor arrived.
7. Supervisor arrived, Dan, finished the transfer and put today's mail in it.
8. Poured Gatorade over my partner's head.

Default Re: A few Measly Steps a Day

I might try your idea of skipping the first chapters of nonfiction. I don't really like reading nonfiction, and maybe that's why.

I've been researching the Klondike Gold Rush. Really interesting. Remind me never to complain about anything again. Those prospectors had it rough. It's going to factor into my next novel, although the novel takes place in 2003. I'm thinking I want to visit Dawson City Yukon this summer - definitely in the summer. I'm way to old for 40 below zero.

So much to know.

Gold! I guess they didn't consult the temperature tables.

I'm focused on several presentations, well, 3, and I just got an invite to be part of a convo about a conference around facilitation.

My fun-enticing stuff is going pretty well and if I can get a slot this conference might be a good place to release it. I'm using the Seinfeld calendar method. Of the last 40 days or so, just missed one. Really felt a regret and strong urge to get back to marking that X.

R, I can't read the blue against the black. It looks great, but it's hard to make out the words.

Even with white lettering, I find the black background hard to use. I wonder if anyone else is experiencing the same problem. Plus it seems like a depressing color choice for a forum for people dealing with mental illness. Yes, I know you didn't choose it. If I figure out how to comment to the forum's creators, I'll tell them my thoughts.

Good news - I've signed up to sign up for an appointment to get the vaccine. Better news - My daughter (doctor) got her second shot. She was one of the group that worked out John Muir's vaccine distribution. She also volunteers one day a week vaccinating anywhere she's needed.
More better news: My mother in law got her vaccine shot last Saturday. (Has it been that long since I've posted? So Sorry. Her nursing home has managed to contain the virus even though they had about fourteen COVID patients - residents and caregivers.

Sometimes my writing goes well; sometimes it comes to a screeching halt. My New Years resolution was to post 18 tweets by the end of February, and so far, I'm ahead of schedule.

Good luck, and good wishes to anyone who reads this.
D.

Okay, I highlighted what you wrote, and was able to read it. Good luck with your projects. As always, they sound interesting. You've been using Jerry Seinfeld's method for quite a while now. it makes sense - when you do something every day, it becomes a habit. And the Xs are motivations. Keep the Xs coming.

Default font color change

Ha! Not sure how your screen looks. My background is all white, but there might be a night setting I can't find. Font and font color is something we control as both a default (in the profile section) and at the top of the entry box for a particular message.

So, now it's black. Is this better?

For some reason, my background is black. If I highlight your post, it turns to white letters against a blue background, and I can read it. So it must be my computer and not the website. I'll have to go change the post I wrote yesterday to the webmaster saying I didn't like the new look.

Weird!

Default Re: A few Measly Steps a Day

When I clicked on tech support, there were several posts, all recent, asking how to turn off night mode. There's supposed to be a square in the bottom right corner. I can't find it. You know more about computers than I do. Any ideas?

Default night mode woes

Oy. I can't find any of those tabs, either. It appears this is run on the php software or app platform, and a quick search sees many other forums having this issue too.

Long sh0t, but sometimes when I have issue like this I go to my browser's (Firefox) preferences page and click whatever I need to do to override what a given page does with my own preferences.

A workaround, for sure, but most often works. Worth a try.
