first blog posted from new computer
i never would've ended up buying a new computer, were i not to been forced to do so by airport security. yes the same old computer which keeps falling apart, with screws and sharp things sticking out, then wouldnt let me board the plane with it, nor check it in my other baggage because they claimed it set off alarms. at first they told me id need to call their office and pay to have it mailed to me if i didnt wish it to be thrown out, but an hour later when close to time to board the plane, they removed me and told me someone wanted to ask me questions, so i missed my flight. eventually they were satisfied it wasnt a major issue after they investigated the laptop, but it took 2 hours waiting for the 2 techs to come look at it, and the manager for allegiant whose only in the airport a short time some evenings had gone home for the day by the time it got resolved and my laptop returned to me. they couldnt understand why i would be keeping it in such poor condition. i still have no idea if i can get another free ticket to reimburse me but i hate phoning people so im waited for my email to be returned. it takes a while for them to reply this way.
so now i have a new laptop and as soon as i have black trash bags and a dumpster to hide it in, ill throw it out. or maybe mail to ray for use in an emergency. im putting anything i can think of on the new computer, and creating newer passwords which the new computer will autostore. coinbase, online gambling, etc. seems todays fee to send $121 in bitcoin is up to $14, leaving u with only $107. i dont see how the general public will ever use it with these rates (imagine paying this for visa transactions) meaning its turning into a ponzi scheme with only investors and speculators using it, not counting online gamblers. but the general public will never be able to use it in normal use until something is done about transaction fees.
so i left the airport with 15,300 then paid only $42 believe it or not at residence inn by marriott in rapid city thru priceline, which ends up being $55 with fees and tax. but still much less than the $99-159 in other cities. very nice complete kitchen in their rooms. good wifi. laundry facilities in the building, which worked out well since i was down to my last shirt, and now ive got 3 weeks worth of clean clothes once more. i returned to deadwood once i bought the new laptop in walmart before i left rapid city for $267 with tax. sure wasnt going to hang around rapid city with nothing to do and i still couldnt fly til i figured out where to discard of the old one, which still hasnt been done. but im now able to use the new one as opposed to doing everything on the old one.
once i bought it then paid for 2 nites in deadwood checking out tomorrow morning, (might fly to denver) i was down to $14,900. but i won in the $2-10 stud 8 mix yesterday, then over $400 on the VBJ, then over $200 using the bonus slot info where i found about 3 plays lit up. so i pretty much got back all the tons of money this much hassle cost me, and now ive got a new laptop, although a fairly inexpensive one. i wonder what the difference is between an expensive one and an inexpensive one. i just know very soon ill end up wanting some info off the other laptop and wont have it by that time.
i wish i didnt abhor using the phone, i really should be calling allegiant right away. i would ask Ray to but i worry they will ask him something only i could know the answer to. plus, i no longer have a place to live here in deadwood. but then again, maybe God didnt want me to leave deadwood so he kept me here. i know i liked the residence inn, ill never see that price anywhere. surely some of u have stayed in residence by marriott and know the good deal on this price. now im back in the springhill suites for $39 nite. i still need to leave but with the hassle of flying, the cost involved going to the airport and the fact i could live here only $500 per month if i committed to a month at this one further out old motel on the trolley line, it sure feels a waste of money to spend a whole months living expenses just to leave town to go where costs are much higher. i do really wish to get back to poker though, or go to where theres a ton more of these slot machines to check. and im still wondering if the slot machine in the bullock is rigged or not.
i did buy 1 bag of baby carrots in walmart too, wouldve bought more if id known how long i would be in town. plus i was in a hurry due to my lyft waiting for me outside to purchase the laptop as quickly as i could. (with my luggage in her car enroute to deadwood from the residence inn in rapid city). its nice having a working "a" key again. no more using the online keyboard. the "z" key too had stopped working. sometimes my sentences sounded odd because i was trying to avoid using the letter a.
