The screaming has been silenced.

Posted by foreualways on January 26, 2009

Seeking shelter – a light glows from outside
Sweat beads up and rolls down your skull.

Your down in the shadows, breathing heavy
trying to remain like a corpse.

A corpse is not good enough
for what you have done.

Your scared and nervous
At this moment your desire is to be – free – to be redeemed.

They are coming – and when they do
your reality will change.

No one can help you – no prayer will
cover your burden – nor your sins.

No amount of begging or pleading
will alter your destiny.

You will suffer, you will bleed, you will scream
no one will hear you no one will care.

Your agony – your misery – your torture
will be their foreplay.

The lights get brighter – they are getting closer
how did it get to this point.

The memory of your loved ones flow
You wish things were different.

A sleeping dream this is not
You snap back to reality.

The screams in your head won’t stop
your heart is beating faster.

The door burst open
The blood red horrific eyes close in on you.

Your time has come
the screaming has been silenced.

The Final Exhale

Posted by foreualways on January 17, 2009

I feel what the point, I can’t win. I will forever and
always be a loser. Even if I won the lottery, no one would be there for me! No
not me – but for what I can finally often them that they would actually want!

Waiting for time to stop!!! Or at least to be over!

Ever you ever actually felt the stream trickle down your
hand and drip from your fingers.
All before you hit the floor, you can feel….

My time here as been anything, but useful, loving and cared
for! My desire have been a one way street.
Would I be missed even if I had the guts to proceed with this temptation to
enter another realm?

Inhale, then on your exhale I will be forever gone. The
burden with be released and your relief will no longer be overdue!!!

Maybe I have entered that other realm without realizing I’ve
been there all along…

Well I would think on several  levels  above
the  surface of your outer glow. I might
be a speck of some annoyance!

I often wonder what was the purpose of my existence here and
I’ve never come up with a real explanation! As it been repeatedly expressed to
me throughout  my ignorance – the sole
purpose is to hurt!

I am not capable of love, giving or receiving, not do I even
know what real love is.
My failed attempts at such a emotionally and classical mess are nothing less
than a disappointment!  

As, I mentioned repeatedly, I am incapable of love, let
alone knowing what it is. So I ask you as you ponder this pathetic attempt at a
writing , why did I think I could even begin to change who I am from who I
was???

I’ve been in your way the whole time, your life would have
been so much more joyous if I were not in your thoughts. I can only image that
your thoughts were filled with the anxiety of having to deal with me! The next
email, chat, phone call…

To fool you again into my hold on something you no longer
desire! He holds your heart!

Too much to do, not enough time for those that don’t really
matter. Why did I ever consider redemption… Forgiveness is for those that are
capable of love!

Take a deep breath and exhale as much as you can – then you
will finally be free!

ScribeFire — My old, But Yet New Blogging Tool!

Posted by foreualways on January 3, 2009

ScribeFire vs DeepestSender: One Blogging Addon to Rule Them All!

Jun. 19th, 2008 By Lee Mathews

As
I started to catch up with more “modern” methods of
blogging (so long, Blogger.com!), I realized that I was sadly behind
the times when it came to my blogger’s toolbox. Sure, the default
Wordpress interface is clean, unimposing, and easy to deal with, but
that wasn’t good enough for me. I needed a Swiss Army knife of a
blog app, stat!

Since I’m a die-hard Firefox user, I headed over to the
Firefox addons site to find a worthy candidate. A quick search turned
up a few possibilities, the top two being ScribeFire and Deepest Sender. A quick look at the download stats: 1.6 million vs. 57,000 and I had a pretty good idea which one was going to win.

While the reviews for both addons are favorable, these addons are clearly in different classes. Deepest Sender is kind of like
manually opening a second Firefox window and doing your WordPress work
there while you browse in another (which is the clunky method that made
me start this search in the first place). It doesn’t allow image
uploading or adding tags, but it is a decent way to quickly jot down
parts of a post or brainstorm.

Deepest Sender is tiny, presents a cleaner interface, and it
doesn’t run on your web server – so it would save a bit of
bandwidth. Other than that, I don’t see too many advantages to
running it.

Ready to move on, I close the window and fire up ScribeFire by hitting F8.

This is more like it! Scribefire springs into action, splitting the
Firefox pane in half horizontally and revealing a solid editing
environment right inside the browser!

ScribeFire has a lot of killer features – including support for
multiple blog sites and publishing systems, tabbed posts (you can see
two tabs open in my screencap), complete font control, YouTube and
Flickr embedding, source code editing, and even a sharing pane to make
it easy to check Technorati stats or add to Digg, StumbleUpon,
Del.ici.ous, and more! Oh yeah, there’s an options tab, too,
which allows you to change several aspects of ScribeFire’s
behavior.

The tabs on the right offer broad support for WordPress’ other
post-writing features, including categories, tags, timestamp,
trackbacks, and ping options. You can even scroll through older entires
and make changes to them on the fly. Is there anything this addon can’t do?

Oh yes…It also supports dragging and dropping from your Firefox tabs, like this:

Keyboard Shortcuts:

A list of all the default keyboard shortcuts used in ScribeFire.

Used in the rich text editor (preceded by Ctrl)

  • Bold: “B”
  • Italic: “I”
  • Underline: “U”
  • Link: “M”
  • Undo: “Z”
  • Redo: “Y”
  • Cut: “X”
  • Copy: “C”
  • Paste: “V”
  • Delete: “D”
  • Select All: “A”

The above shortcuts were as easy to add as going to the Wiki page, clicking on keyboard shortcuts, and then highlighting and dragging the block down to my ScribeFire editor. Holy ease of use, Batman!

Really, the only downside I can see is the size of my editing area.
On my 15.4″ laptop’s 1280×800 screen, I only see
about a paragraph of my post at any given time. Still, to have the
editor reside at the bottom of my Firefox window rather than on another
tab or in its own window, I’m willing to work with that.
It’s a pretty minor annoyance, especially in the face everything
Scribefire does well. Besides, it’s not the publisher’s
fault I can’t yet justify buying a laptop that sports a WUXGA
panel.

I didn’t notice any sluggishness when browsing with Scribefire
open, and there was no major impact on the size of my Firefox install (the download itself is only 250kb).

The jury’s in, and between these two addons ScribeFire wins
hands down. Deepest Sender is outgunned and outclassed this time, and
has lost its spot in my Firefox addons list.

All in all, you can have your Windows Live Writer. With Scribefire and my portable Firefox
install, I’m ready to blog anywhere with an ever-decreasing
number of hassles. For in-browser blogging, Scribefire is about as good
as it gets – unless you can convince me otherwise?

Microsoft Says Leap Year Bug Caused Zune Failures

Posted by foreualways on January 2, 2009

Posted on Wed Dec 31, 2008 4:32PM EST

Picture this: You’re gearing up to create a killer playlist on your 30GB Zune for your annual New Year’s bash. All of a sudden, your Zune locks up, reboots itself, and freezes. What the heck is going on?

In September, Microsoft released the Zune 3.0 software and firmware update along with its newest hardware, the Zune 120GB and 16GB models. At the time, Microsoft mentioned that it would be phasing out the older models slowly–but the company didn’t say the change would be this dramatic.

As early as yesterday evening, reports of 30GB Zunes crashing began to surface on Microsoft support forums and gadget blogs. Microsoft updated the Zune support Web site
with the following acknowledgement: "Customers with 30GB Zune devices
may experience issues when booting their Zune hardware. We’re aware of
the problem and are working to correct it. Sorry for the inconvenience, and thanks for your patience!"

We contacted a Microsoft spokesperson, who confirmed the issue with this official statement:

"Early this morning we were alerted by our customers that there was
a widespread issue affecting our 2006 model Zune 30GB devices (a large
number of which are still actively being used). The technical team
jumped on the problem immediately and isolated the issue: a bug in the
internal clock driver related to the way the device handles a leap
year.

"That being the case, the issue should be resolved over the next 24
hours as the time change moves to January 1, 2009. We expect the
internal clock on the Zune 30GB
devices will automatically reset tomorrow (noon, GMT). By tomorrow you
should allow the battery to fully run out of power before the unit can
restart successfully then simply ensure that your device is recharged,
then turn it back on.

"If you’re a Zune Pass subscriber, you may need to sync your device
with your PC to refresh the rights to the subscription content you have
downloaded to your device.

"Customers can continue to stay informed via the support page on zune.net (zune.net/support)."We
know this has been a big inconvenience to our customers and we are
sorry for that, and want to thank them for their patience."
