My friend Johann has become sicker

Tuesday, June 26, 2018

My good friend through 38 years, have it tough these days. He has ulcerative colitis and has had this for many years, which has given him constant stomach problems. He lives a rich life with the family he visits several times a week. He has good neighbors and is outgoing so there is much contact between them.

Fourteen days ago, he was at the doctor’s control. They had discovered that he had lymphoma. I hope it was discovered early, because over 90% can survive and get healthy.

But it’s a tough message to get.

Now my new router has stopped working

Sunday, June 24th

I bought the router on May 29th and it has worked so far. Then it stopped working night to sunday. I do not get an IP address and remote management can not contact.

In the past, I’ve lost a lot of hardware. Now I have trouble again, starting to get tired of bad luck. It’s as though God punishes me because I have not been in the church for half a year.

The router is in the living room at Eivind, my landlord. He is of course gone now and does not come home until tonight. So now I’m sharing WiFi from my phone. The data subscription is charged and I have 2GB per. month. It’s from the 22nd so fortunately I have enough for today, but much data is running on WordPress administration.

So I can not post that much today.

Gilde Grill sausages!

Was with my friend Terje and got there Gilde grill sausages. There was mustard and ketchup of course and fried onion. There were eventually 6 sausages that went down my throat as well as a good soda drinks. Then it was served ice cream with caramel sauce. I have diabetes, but what the heck helll, one has to live a little, Is not no point in measuring glucose levels in the evening, will not get shocked. I feel good and have no problems, so that’s fine enough then.

It’s always nice at Terje, wife Liv was traveling with her son Lars, so it was nice to visit now. Will be back to Terje tomorrow.

ASRock provides very good service

Thursday 21 June 2018

In 2013 I built a gamer PC to my friend Håvard. He died a couple of years ago and I took over the PC. Two days ago, I upgraded the BIOS system to a beta version and this is done on my own responsibility. The manufacturer writes on the website that it is at your own risk.

It’s about five years ago. But I wrote an email to the manufacturer today early and wrote that the PC did not work with the beta BIOS. I got quick answers! and it was described how to reset the BIOS. It did not work and I wrote that whatever I did, the PC would not start.

I wrote so that all I could do was buy a new motherboard. Then I got one quicker response! They wrote that I could provide my address and they should send a new BIOS with optional version! It will arrive in the mail in 3 to 4 days.

I was shocked by the response and service quality. The motherboard had expired on date and the warranty was two years from the date of purchase. The company is named ASRock and has Europe’s service office in the Netherlands.

I’m going to buy ASRock in the future.

System crash WordPress errors

Monday, June 18, 2018

Data crash, WordPress is not trusted !. Lost categories and new posts would not appear in the admin panel. So I go back to my previous page.

I searched the web for a solution, but found none. I checked with the system’s plugin section if there was anything there but nothing there either.

Then we are back with HTML5 and XML data files.

Something to think about is a bit heavy right now

Monday, June 11, 2018

I stopped visiting in Groruddals church because of my health condition. Losing this community is bad because it was the only thing I had. Friends have left me due to lack of contact from my side. I have isolated myself because of my feet and now that I have had new drugs that work, it’s hard to be so alone.

Now I only have three good friends again and they are so busy with their chores. It’s hard only with phone contact. I have 1619 friends on Facebook and followed by 667 people. There are only two or three people who comment on my posts. So it’s a little annoying that so few are interested.

I have the only activity to visit the Kompetansen Organization twice a week, Mondays and Wednesdays. But on June 24, the office closes for the summer and does not open again until August 13th. I will visit the church on June 17, and see if I am accepted again after not having been there since November last year.

No one in the church has visited me while I have been ill. There has been some contact, but I have been too ill to accept visitors. Now I have better health at least and it has not been so good since 2013. I am in a good mood and will try to contact some friends I have had a relationship with before.

I wish more friends and want to update Facebook, Twitter and Instagram with good posts that are good for friendship.

Now I’m on the Kompetansen and I’m fine

A few updates on a Sunday

Sunday, June 10, 2018

First, I lost my media machine in early May. So a week ago, I lost one of my three NAS (network drives). Then the main server went down because the system battery was dead. So now I’ve lost a lot of movies, music and e-books. My documents on emails from bulletins were fortunately on my PC and backup on another NAS.

But it’s tough for someone who does not have that high income. I have to save for a whole year to get a new server. Fortunately, I have a server with lots of RAM running 3 virtual servers with development software. It’s a bit slow, but I’ll do what I’m going to do.

I currently have 2 NAS and two servers, plus my own PC. Then I have three laptops. I have a laptop in the toilet because I have such a slow stomach. Then I have a laptop on the living room so I can watch TV shows in reprise and those I did not see. The third laptop is in the office of the organization Kompetansen I am a member of.

There are i5 and i7 processors in all machines with enough RAM to run all applications including virtual machines. So I can not complain about the machine park, it’s up to date and I run the following operating systems:

Windows 2012 Server, RRAS, DNS, DHCP, IIS7, PHP, Dell PowerEdge T20
Windows 10, VirtualBox with 3 virtual machines self-contained
Windows 10, my PC self-built

My two NAS are:
ZyXel NSA325 v2 2TB
LaCie 2 Big 2 TB

In the stationary machines there are a total of 12 TB. In two virtual machines, I have both MySQL and MariaDB databases. This to compare the differences. The third virtual machine runs Apache web server. I have a web server in the Dell machine too, it is Internet Information Server and has PHP as FastCGI script.

I try to go to Joomla on my website, but it’s not easy with bilingual network configuration. Joomla is a content system for web pages and is easy to get started with. It requires database, preferably MySQL. So you must have a web hotel with database included to install Joomla.

Well, I’ll see a movie before I’m going to sleep. That’s an action movie I think, look a little now and the rest in bed ……..

(I have gigabit networks both wired and wireless, even my Sony Xperia X supports gigabit wireless. My tablet supports N-standard 150Mbit only, but it’s enough to watch HD movies in bed before I fall asleep.)

Me and Lyrica

Monday, June 4, 2018

First, what Lyrica helps, cut and paste from the website:

Peripheral and central neuropathic pain: Lyrica is used to treat long-term pain caused by nerve damage. A variety of diseases can cause peripheral neuropathic pain, such as diabetes or shingles. The pain may be described as hot, burning, pulsating, sudden, stinging, convulsive, aching, tingling, numbness or as a small needle stick in the skin. Peripheral and central neuropathic pain can also be associated with changes in mood, sleep disturbances, fatigue, and may affect physical and social functions and overall quality of life.

Yes, that’s what I have. A little hell every morning before the Lyrica works. It takes about 30 minutes. I take 150mg three times a day. It makes life “something easier” to say the least. Before Lyrica I had a tough hell for several years. As a result, I isolated myself because of the. pain. There was not much I could do in social gatherings, it was mostly Christmas Eve and a couple of days with a family I have good contact with.

Now I’m painless for many hours every day. And I have have a surplus that I have not had for at least 5 years. It’s not just the surplus, but I’ve got back the creativity and an my idea bank that I had before the disease. It’s even more, I eat more and enjoy good food and drink. So life has come back to me.

Must write more about Lyrica’s behavior on me. It’s a bit early yet. The medications I tried earlier worked quite good but then after a few months they stopped working. It has been two months now, so I hope this will work for good now.

Now I’m sleeping all night

Monday 4 June

After I increased the dose of NOZINAN to the double to 50mg, I’ve got a much better life.
My doctor may say that this is too much, but with 25mg I only sleep for a few hours. I have no regular sleeping medication, but I need to have sleeping in tablets.

I have tinnus so high that it is impossible to fall asleep by myself. My right ear has such a high frequency sound that makes a lot of the day very bad. I listen to music in headphones, not so loud but just so it maskes the high pitched sound.

I use 2 x 7.5mg Immovane sleeping in tablets. It is a double dose of recommended. But I can not sleep with just one tablet. The doctor has approved this because I have so much trouble falling asleep.

So now I sleep all night and wake up for approx. 7 or 8 in the morning. So now I am refreshed every day and have a huge surplus. My life has improved with Lyrica, Immovane and Nozinan. I will write a new post on Lyrica.
