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.

    1. anyone can get these from the front desk without needing a mailer, but the wifi works horribly, no fridge and its a much worse hotel.

    1. It is interesting how quickly Trump turns against his pedophile friend as soon as he lost the election.

    2. I also posted this in the older post before I saw this newer post...

      It was odd that voter turnout was only about 25% in Alabama. But it ends up certain demographics did come out in big numbers to swing that senate seat to the Dems!

      "Big turnout among minorities, young people, single lesbian women and college-educated suburbanites was the key to the Democrats' win."

    3. Poor Tony - those lesbians are always screwing up SOMETHING! :-)

    4. people lost their belief in God. theyre far out on the left and they dont wish to live by the Bible, as for the allegations, shouldnt be too hard to tell theyre lies. i know a lot more than the general public since i read all types of right wing media which shows u the way in which those women lied and how it couldnt be true even the womans son swore his mother lied about Moore. the manager of the mall came out too and said the ban story is a lie. but if the public doesnt learn this, they dont know these facts.

    5. I love you, Tony. You never let me down. Thanks for commenting.

      s.i.

      p.s. - I believe you're right about people losing their believe in god, but not yet at the rate I would like to see. As for the rest of your post, I believe you have been tricked into trusting illegitimate sources. You have been lied to, sir. I watched the video from the step son, and he says he doesn't believe his step mom, but has no reason or proof, other than his trust in Moore. You really need to question your sources more, Tony.

    6. Tony, are you saying that living by the bible means supporting a pedophile? That is some strange view of Christianity. How did do many people get brain washed?

  4. Do you lug all your 3 weeks of clothes around the country? I guess you must.

    1. Besides 3 weeks of clothes his current cache of kitchen utensils (which sometimes includes a pizza turner) is also in our Hero's luggage.

    2. This brings up the question, what does Tony consider 3 weeks worth of clothing.

      Delete
    3. 21 T shirts, 3 pairs of trousers, a couple of socks(mainly for stashing the roll)and no underwear.

      Delete
    4. 21 tshirts, 1 pant, and no undies.

  5. You should have bought a MacBook Air or Pro. Would have been worth the investment. Has lightning driven out to visit you yet? That's what a real Christian would do.

    1. Lightning could swing by my place on the way out to Deadwood? I'd pay half for gas. Our Hero investing in a top shelf laptop would be a disaster. Just sayin'....

    2. The low-end laptops tend to be more of what is called a netbook instead of a notebook computer. The cheaper price involves only having enough memory installed to boot the operating system and launch a browser and also a very small hard drive. So the cheapest Walmart "laptops" are not intended to have MS Office installed (ever). They are only good for running a web-browser which is what I guess all that you need.

      Having your old laptop in such bad shape that it generates a security ordeal at an airport is effing hilarious Tony, just effing hilarious (and I mean that in a good way)....

  6. Oh... almost forgot.... even though you are bored by the slow pace out at Deadwood I suggest to rent the $500 room at the end of the trolley line and do one more month in Deadwood. The main reason that I suggest this shocking option is that I think the next month in Deadwood could be very relaxing for you. Yes: relaxing. Consider trying a month where you have gambled LESS than you have ever gambled in your life. Relax while reading books. Relax while taking in the local nature when the temperatures cooperate. Relax and attend a local church service. Relax and do anything besides gambling the majority of your days. Try turning of the honey badger thing for a month and see how you feel come the middle of January.

    2. I know what you mean Dot Com but I was still willing to play the longshot on my appeal to our Hero....

      If he would have committed to another month in South Dakota and better understood life with LESS gambling it would have been YUGE!!! YUGE.... I tell you....

  10. Our Hero's fake news blog post about 30 days ago which caused a huge upward spike in page views is about to roll off of the trend graphic. For just a few days we will have a huge spread in the graph between that upward spike and the recent downward spike due to the relocation from South Dakota. We will now return to our regular programming.....
