One of the reasons I don’t do challenges often is that the rules shift and change. That is normal in the progression of a problem. I posted 365 pictures a day, over 368 days. I missed three days during that challenge, and towards the end, I have to say it burned me out a bit on challenges. I have been selective int eh ones I do since then. But, I always read and comment on all the posts of people in problems. I am a challenging consumer, not often a participant.  One of the things I’ve noticed lately is the 20 viril penalty for reported comments. I can see that going wrong every quickly. I have also noticed that the 502 submission error appears to be limited to Gallery submissions.The gallery is what I’ve been using for my wander project for a long time. It may be my issue overall. I can’t tell because the 502 is an unfortunate gateway error. Like most of us, I have several gateways between me and any particular web site. The first is at my home; the second is traversing my IS{P’s network (I have a portal to enter the ISP network and a gateway to exit the ISP network and be on the public internet. Finally, there is a gateway for the data center/cloud provider the site is on. The other thing to consider is if you are running macOS, Linux or Windows, you also have a gateway on your actual computer. That makes five distinct gateways, and I haven’t determined which one is rejecting the information yet.

I was looking at doing a new movers project, watching the impact of authors on other authors, but honestly, two of the most significant external movers are no longer on the site. The impact of that means some fewer people bring substantial numbers of views to other authors. One of the reasons that opinions are down overall is that we are losing authors. There are several things several people have tried to help others. I always believe that the mark of a right person is how much they help others. There is a story of a marathon runner at a marathon. They were in the lead when the person closest to them fell and was injured. The leader stopped and helped their competitor to their feet. He lost the race, as in walking the last 100 yards, 4 other runners caught and passed them. But he kept walking beside that other runner, helping him limp to the finish.

Helping others is the best expression of our humanity!

  • Post something funny, try to help others it is so important now!

  1. Here’s a joke from me. I hope you smile. Have a nice day.
    A tired woman slowly drags along the street … holding bags full of purchases in both hands … it’s late … it’s dark … Suddenly an exhibitionist pops up … opens the slate and shines clean naked … The woman looks up blank … focuses it and slaps it on the forehead:

    – Pfuuu! I forgot to buy eggs!

  2. Before you marry a person you should first make them use a computer with slow Internet to see who they really are.-Will Ferrell (I think you know this one, but just thought of it)

    “If you are happy and you know it, share your meds”

  3. I am intrested in starting this series where I post some of the positive things going on in the world instead of the negative that the media is putting out there mostly. I’ve encountered 2 stories today that I would love to share on this site. Thanks to Twitter I have encountered them.

  4. If toast always lands butter-side down, and cats always land on their feet, what happens if you strap toast on the back of a cat and drop it?

    Before you judge a man, walk a mile in his shoes. After that who cares?… He’s a mile away and you’ve got his shoes!

    As you get older three things happen. The first is your memory goes, and I can’t remember the other two.

  5. I don’t have much fun to say. However, my sister said this and she thought it was hilarious. “The pandemic is God’s way of saying stop being mean to each other and go to your bedroom.” I am really not sure why it made her laugh until she cried and still I am grateful.

    I don’t really think in the big picture it matters if I am here or not. What used to bring great joy doesn’t seem to happen as much. I don’t know that I have anything of value to give.
