Restructuring: Making A Mess Of A Good Thing

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on September 30, 2015 in News & Opinion |

Traveling on the bus so often, I get to hear many stories as well as see many things those who drive in their cars tend to miss – aside from bicycle riders, which we all get to see and, hopefully, miss as they ignore the rules and risk their lives. Today was no exception, and […]

Before You Start Self-Publishing

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on September 29, 2015 in Publishing |

There was a time, not so long ago, when I thought it could be worthwhile concentrating on self-published books; reviewing what is available; getting to know new authors; seeing how things are done. It was one of my many experiments, not one which I regret, but one which certainly opened my eyes to the hidden […]

Photography: Seagull 4BI

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on September 27, 2015 in Photography |

Having said that I would be trying out my Seagull camera, and succeeded in buying the right film for it, today was the day. A day not just for discovery, but also for experimentation and, to a certain extent, some frustration. The camera is in excellent condition, the lens clean, the workings smooth. It feels, […]

Windows 10: It Was All Going So Well…

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on September 26, 2015 in Internet |

I’ve spent the late afternoon today, after my usual half hour getting the computer to work with Windows 10, writing, sending mail and all the things that you do on the Internet. Then, just as I was about to do something new, it crashed. Windows 10 went down the drain again, and this time with […]

Sorry Wired, But You’ve Got Ello Wrong

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on September 25, 2015 in Internet |

It doesn’t matter how often you say it, some people have this fixed idea in their minds, and nothing is going to remove it. Take a look at the daily news, watch television, listen to those around you holding conversations. In hardly any time at all you’ll see, read or hear something which you know […]

Photography: You Don’t Need An App For That

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on September 24, 2015 in Photography |

When I started blogging I had no idea at all. I thought it would be as easy as everyone said it would be, and the world would just fall at my feet, begging me for more and adorning my posts with hundreds of deep and meaningful comments. There are bound to be people who still […]

Careful With Those Page Breaks!

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on September 23, 2015 in Publishing |

Despite the fact that I haven’t written any reviews recently, I am still doing my fair share of reading whenever I get the chance. If there is a spare moment, it is filled with a book. Today I finished the most enjoyable Leaving Berlin by Joseph Kanon, a work which goes to prove that the […]

Ashley Madison: The Scams Begin

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on September 22, 2015 in Internet |

It didn’t take long. For some it is perhaps more of a problem than for others, but for me it is merely an amusement now. Even so, there are people out there, in cyberspace, who have taken the time to sift through the Ashley Madison hack files and find mail addresses, and those who are […]

Windows 10: The Problems Continue

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on September 21, 2015 in Internet |

It is getting to be far more than just frustrating, working (hah!) with Windows 10. I mentioned in an earlier post that I have to run ZoneAlarm every single time I boot my computer in order to even get online. Firefox can’t connect, nor can Microsoft Edge, and my mail software just hangs forever. Running […]

More A Lampshade Than A Lightbulb

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on September 20, 2015 in Immoral Conversations |

There are some sayings which fit the bill exactly, especially when it comes to people who you meet and converse with. I’ve often heard things like The lights are on, but no one is home or The elevator doesn’t go right to the top, used to refer to people who are less able to think […]
