Getting your email working again {n9gc}

Temporary “letter” to Carolyn:
(Save this note with copy/paste and Microsoft Word, or LibreOffice, or OpenOffice!!!! I will call you.)

You should probably abandon WestHost, which is now pricey and bureaucratic. Please check out these GREAT services:

https://www.polarismail.com/pricing/

# The cost of the service is $12 per year.

https://www.polarismail.com/email-services/e-mail-hosting-features/

# When you choose your e-mail address, you can use your own domain instead of polarismail.net.

# “Our Private Concierge migration service renders moving your users to PolarisMail a breeze. One of our engineers will walk you through all the details and set up a migration plan with you.”

# You must set up their service prior to use. Their chat system during business hours is the best help service. Also: “Talk with real people! Our support team will assist you in solving any issues or answer your questions – via chat, e-mail or phone support.” See “Personal support”.

# The regular Polaris email login is:

https://webmail.emailarray.com

# Have a username ready like –/ carolyn ~at~ pinkpeppercorns.com /– (make sure your domain name has not temporarily expired). I ONLY USE NEARLY FREE SPEECH TO HOLD MY DOMAIN REGISTRATIONS!!!:

https://www.nearlyfreespeech.net/services/domains

Have two good passwords, for both the domain name “membership” and your Polarismail email password. Something like:

–/ icebergescortF<2 /–.

ADDENDUM, finding lost LibreOffice file:

Check this (probably not useful!):
https://ask.libreoffice.org/en/question/27517/my-document-has-disappeared/

If you don’t have it, get Agent Ransack to find lost files.

“Set standard or advanced file search criteria

“If you are an expert, you can apply more filters to the search, so as to ensure the results are the expected ones. More precisely, you can mention the approximate size the target files should have or you can specify the created, modified or last accessed date. Needless to say, if you do not know these details, you can simply disable them.

“Once the search process is complete, Agent Ransack displays a summary with the detected files, and you can preview their contents without even leaving the app – this way, you can easily copy the path of the file you were looking for or open the folder where it is located.”

I avoid LibreOffice when I can (e.g. when PDF format is not required, but I create content in a simpler program). I always use the ROCK-SOLID Geany “mini-IDF” so-called “developer editor” to generate simple TXT documents.

Geany is the best!

Hi People From Stop Me Before…

::: by blues :::

I can hardly type at all — so I don’t want to run a (non-static) blog.

You should be able to leave messages here very easily! (Especially during this time — Nov. 17, 2015.) WordPress is making me “approve ” comments, so it may be an hour or a day before they appear. Sorry. You can also register.

Please leave your blog name at the top, for example:

::: by blog name :::

(If Michael dislikes this invitation, he may let me know here.)

Love to all.

Modern ‘Democracy’ Is The Ultimate Great Fraud

::: by blues :::

So-called (modern) “democracy” is a complete joke and “republicanism” is much worse, lately because of complicated, shrouded vote casting and counting machines, and for centuries, the single selection (so-called “plurality”) voting method. Due to the spoiler effect this always brings about a two-party “system” that is a farce and a fraud. The only thing that will ever work is the simplest form of score voting. It is so simple. Give no votes at all, or one to ten votes (a “score”) to any number of candidates you wish (within some reasonable number, say, 20). Simply add the votes up. SIMPLE! If you give someone eight votes rather than ten, you will have only sacrificed 20% of your vote, of course. Vote artfully, NOT artlessly! (Do not deny yourself the power of strategy.) (If a voter accidentally gives a candidate two scores, count the lower one.) This fraudulent “democracy” could have been repaired in this simple way centuries ago.

A Genuine Solution!

::: by blues :::

This website will describe the only voting system that is extremely simple, and effective, and which foils the lesser evil / spoiler effect which imposes a so-called two-party system that is controlled by ruling classes. The system will not require complex vote-casting and counting machines, and be free of the many unwarranted assumptions of the contemporary election methods mavens.

For now, this is a work in progress.
