Timeline is still loading ever so slowly.

isso depende já de varias coisas, ás vezes do servidor ( que tem probleminhas ou apenas é fraquinho para o software que usa), outras vezes de vc mesmo ( cheio de contatos de feeds etc...), ou de seus contatos mesmo ( estão clonando ou outras coisas repetitivas...).
Mas como a gente tem clones  da pra ver se é problema de servidor/site, pode acontecer que num site é lento e no outro não.
JRandal
  
Pensei em abrir o clone pra ver se lá também é assim. Não tem reparado semelhante lentidão em outros sites, então concluí que era do servidor do cats.pm.

Missus and I had breakfast with a friend in need of encouragement. We were encouraged, too.

Posting from clone as a test. Got in, thanks to @giac hellvecio and @Mike Macgirvin help. Worked around bug by creating a new channel, then the clone showed up.

I hear tell some people go to Walmart in pajamas. (I have fortunately been spared such sights.) I won't even stay in pajamas if somebody comes to the door. Different culture, different times, I guess.

I  go out and feed all the animals in pj's unless it's seriously cold. It's usually pre-dawn and the chances of anybody noticing or caring are pretty slim out here in bugger all.

But yeah, Wal-Mart attracts some seriously strange people.
Seth Martin
  
Often pajamas or a ragged shirt with a thong. These are not attractive people and thongs don't improve upon it.

@James Lamentus Não sei, pra falar a verdade, vou pouco a Rio, e geralmente longe da praia.

@Mike Macgirvin Unless your animals have a sense of style, they probably don't mind.

@Seth Martin Please, I'd rather not conjure up any mental pictures. ;-)

Through the Bible, April 19
#^Through the Bible, April 19

Reading: Proverbs 1-4

Summary: “And God gave Solomon wisdom and understanding beyond measure, and breadth of mind like the sand on the seashore, so that Solomon’s wisdom surpassed the wisdom of all the people of the east and all the wisdom of Egypt” (1 Kings 4:29-30).  That wisdom manifested itself in, among other things, 3,000 proverbs uttered by Solomon (1 Kings 4:32).

The book of Proverbs is a collection of many of Solomon’s own proverbs, though it also includes some authored by others (see chapters 30-31).

Though it appears that the book is a hodge-podge collection of wise sayings, it’s theme is very concise:

The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge;

fools despise wisdom and instruction.

(Proverbs 1:7)

The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom,

and the knowledge of the Holy One is insight.

(Proverbs 9:10)

Today’s reading will be a sampling of some of the longer proverbs found in the first nine chapters.

Devotional Thought:

How Much Do You Want It?
An eager student approached the wise, old teacher claiming to desire knowledge.  “Please teach me!” he pled.

“You are not ready to learn,” came the surprising reply.

“Oh, but I am! I am ready!” the young student responded.

“Very well, then.  Meet me in the morning on the beach,” the instructor ordered.

The following morning, eager with anticipation the young man waited on the beach as the sun crept over the horizon.  After a brief wait the old man arrived.

“Follow me.”  No greeting; only this brief directive.  With that, out into the surf he marched.  Quite surprised but anxious, the young man followed.

They waded until the water came to their waste.  He stopped. Suddenly the old man lunged at the young, seized him by the back of the neck and plunged him into the sea.  And held him.  Shortly the young man began to struggle, then to flail.  He panicked and with every bit of strength fought the teacher’s grip.  Finally, after only moments that seemed eternal, he allowed the boy to rise.

A tremendous gasp filled his aching lungs.  “What are you doing?” he screamed.

Calmly came the reply, “Only when the intensity of your desire for knowledge matches that for air just now are you ready to learn.”

“If you seek it like silver and search for it as for hidden treasures, then you will understand the fear of the Lord and find the knowledge of God” (Prov. 2:4-5).

How much do you want it?

Not my most productive day, but rather slow. Maybe the evening will redeem the day.

Here's what I see when I log in to vilarejo, not even a place to go to my channel. But it shows I'm in. And when I go to /locs I get a Permission denied message.

eu consegui isso com sorte,  porque  um belo dia resolvi fazer o login enquanto eu estava na pagina /directory, e quando fiz isso eu percebi que estava um pouco diferente, ai eu fui logo  no /manage e vi que dava para criar um novo canal. A surpresa foi que logo depois que voltei para o   /manage dessa vez tinha 2 canais, com o clone "sadio" ;-).
JRandal
  
A tropeçada certa então, né?
JRandal
  
Deu certo. Muito obrigado.

Mike: By creating another channel, the clone showed up. So I'm good. Clone is available if and when I need it.

After lunch I worked on diminishing the stock of The Missus's new brownies, which do not use wheat flour or regular sugar. They're almost fudgy. Definitely delicious. Anytime she wants to feed me some of these, I'm game.

So cats.pm was down all day yesterday. I managed to log into the cloned site, but there was no option for posting. I must be doing something wrong somewhere. What if cats.pm were to disappear? How do I make the other the principal site for me? Hmm ...

That usually means you need to login.
James Lamentus
  
out of curiosity: you go into hub.vilarejo while you're still using cats.pm? In the same time? if yes you're doing wrong, you can not use the two at the same time.
JRandal
  
Mike: I was logged in. As far as I could tell.

James: No. I logged out of cats.pm. Then I logged into vilarejo.

Holiday here, and I'm up early. All's quiet in the street, but the corridors of the mind run with thoughts and plans. Some of these will be quietly extinguished, others fed fuel to see if perhaps they catch fire.

This article by Rick K. deserves reading.

"Are you pulling my leg (off)?"

He makes it quite understandable.

Afternoon was more productive than the morning, which is unusual. But there's an explanation for it: while waiting on lunch to be served, I jotted down the three big things I wanted to do, on a 4x6 index card, assigned them approximate time slots, and sketched out the direction I wanted to take those three. One of them wound up with some detailed outlines. After I did that, I wrote under the list of the three items, "Do these three, and then you're free." Of course, we had our workout at 5 pm, and we'll have our weekly reading in a few minutes, but I meant free as far as the afternoon work was done.

I got the three things done to my satisfaction. Pleased with myself. Of course, I had earlier included in my prayer this morning to be able to get some good things done today. So credit where credit is due, as the #prayer was answered—and might still be in the process of being answered, since the day is not over yet. #planning #productivity

Lately I've been doing a "Verse of the Day" (VOTD). People seem to like these, they're popular out in internetland. I add one short line of explanation, context, or comment, and another line with a question of application. The contextual comments seek to drive people to read the verse in their Bibles within their context.

#^http://fellowshiproom.com/tag/votd/

I pray such things aren't popular because they substitute for real Bible reading and assuage some feelings of guilt over the lack.
