Money for nothing and our chicks for free

31 Jul 2020 3 minute read comments lowededwookie

So I've been reading advice from a number of sources including here on Publish0x and read.cash etc and many of them say use faucets for free money. In theory these are a nice way to generate free income but the benefits have not outweighed the cons....

Things I learned from a Hand-Cart (Part Two)

29 Jul 2020 2 minute read comments lowededwookie

What I learned Sketchup plans suck I ditched SketchUp in favour of Fusion360 simply because F360 is a much better product for the same price. Seriously a much better project. But many people only know SketchUp and so most of the plans you'll find on...

This is a post about my Hand-Cart from the [Weekend Workshop](https://theweekendwoodworker.com/workshop-course-closed/) course. This course is a bunch of projects that help build your workshop to make it more efficient. There's some really great tip...

It's raining, it's pouring

It's been a while since I wrote anything on this blog. It's largely been a non-event since New Zealand moved to Alert Level 1. Life goes on it's just we don't see anyone from overseas which isn't necessarily a bad thing. We're now entering the middl...

Stupid ad sites

16 Jul 2020 1 minute read comments lowededwookie

So this was going to be interesting. It's one of those stupid sites that contains more ads than information but Brave does a great job of killing the ads. But I thought to myself "I'm sure there's more countries than this". After all Jehovah's Witne...

Why I think Apple's Numbers is more powerful than people believe

12 Jul 2020 3 minute read comments lowededwookie

When it comes to spreadsheets Excel is king. When Apple released iWorks people bemoaned Numbers' lack of all sorts of things. Numbers has had a lot of work done to it and I feel the idea that Numbers is worse than Excel is not a fair one. The two app...

Keeping track

12 Jul 2020 2 minute read comments lowededwookie

I decided to start using a spreadsheet to keep track of my meagre cryptos that I've earned from Publish0x, Brave, SteemIt, Hive, etc. Like I say I've got stuff all crypto but after a couple of weeks ago I've lost about $80(NZD) due to an Atomic Walle...

What's the haps on the postie front?

10 Jul 2020 1 minute read comments lowededwookie

It's been a while since I've posted anything in this blog. The truth is it's been pretty quiet. New Zealand's COVID-19 response has been amazing and we've stopped all community transfers. Unfortunately it was marred by idiots coming in from overseas...

Why I'm a Mac user

7 Jul 2020 6 minute read comments lowededwookie

It's pretty easy to pass off Mac users as sheep entrenched in the cult of Apple but that's, at least in my case, not the reality. For this post to make any real sense you need to know my background and to understand this I'm going to post this video...

A strange game. The only winning move is not to play. How about a nice game of chess?

6 Jul 2020 4 minute read comments lowededwookie

Twitter is bollocks. My postie account got suspended because Twitter's algorithms determined that my account was spamming due to use of coronavirus and covid19 tags. This is the problem with algorithms because if the sodding thing had read my posts t...
