Updates: The Never Ending Story

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on February 12, 2016 in Internet |

It is indeed a wonderful feeling to be back with a software package which works for me, and which allows me to access the Internet, my mails and all that involves. It is almost as if a blindfold has been removed from my eyes, and my hands released from their bonds. Now all I need […]

Windows: Let’s Just Reinstall That, Shall We?

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on February 5, 2016 in Internet |

What do you do when you’ve tried everything else and nothing seems to work? If you’ve any sense, or if you’re as stubborn as I can be, you start from scratch and try to get it right a second time, or a third, or… especially when you have no real choice. Today I managed to […]

Akismet: That File Is Just Too Big

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on February 3, 2016 in Internet |

Did I mention that I have been having problems connecting to the Internet and accessing my site since installing Windows 10? Well, yes, I did and more than once. As an update: I can’t say things have improved, although I have managed to access today – as you can see! – and write something. At […]

One Season Ends, The Next Begins

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on January 28, 2016 in Immoral Conversations |

Have you finished shoveling snow yet? Or has the weather changed where you are and the rainy season begun? If you’ve just managed to clear up all the mess after a successful Christmas festival, you’ll be glad to hear that things are moving on and you do not need to worry about preparing yourself for […]

Flickr Explored: Things I Don’t Understand

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on January 26, 2016 in Internet, Photography |

Everyone knows Flickr. the site where people can upload hundreds of photographs for all to see, have them rated, favorited, shared and – when the Creative Commons license is used – use themselves elsewhere. Most people also know that it has an Explored page: a selection of photographs picked out each day which are considered […]

It’s Worse Than I Imagined

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on January 25, 2016 in Personal |

Having had a very settled life, moving to Germany and then flitting from one apartment to another and now, nearly a month to the day, having moved again, I can say in all honesty that I do not want to have to pack up and move ever again. No matter what. The first times were […]

Sweden: Insurmountable Problems

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on January 20, 2016 in Immoral Conversations |

I can just imagine the poor souls in this photograph, scratching their heads and wondering what to do. It seems like a major problem, on the surface at least. How to get rid of a giant penis someone has managed to scratch – or whatever – on a small lake covered in, as the headline […]

Propagating False Information

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on January 11, 2016 in News & Opinion |

There should be a degree course or, at the very least, a diploma in Fact Checking. As we watch the bitter fights and amazing claims surrounding the US Presidential election campaign and see constant refutations of this claimed fact, that possible event, I wonder whether this form of spinning – the art of telling a […]

Petty Revenge: Fear Me

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on January 10, 2016 in Immoral Conversations |

Every single one of us, and I can almost guarantee that not a single person in the entire world has ever been freed from this, has a need or a desire at some time for revenge. For most of us it is just a passing feeling, something which we feel at the time, but cannot […]

Women: Why Do We Even Bother?

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on January 9, 2016 in Immoral Conversations |

Men’s problems are completely different to Women’s problems. That, I think most will agree, is as clear as anything which has ever been written. We, as women, have an outlook on life, on relationships, on happiness, which is nothing like that which men have who, some claim, are more interested in a good, high-profile workplace […]
