I've used marijunaa for several years now for medical reasons. I have a lot of issues that i'll write about later but for now let's say that i have severe chronic pain and vomiting and psych issues i dont think they've fully diagnosed. For me marijuana is a needed medication.
Doctors here dont deal with pain meds much any more and dont like giving them out for chronic pain. For me i refuse opiates for many reasons. The biggest of which is i dont like what they do to me plus they make me puke.
So medical marijuana for me it is. It controls the pain and nausia but it's got the side effect that i'm psychologically adicted to it. What this means is that my body seems to essentially require that the levels be stable. when they're not it causes my psych issues to spiral which makes me puke.....you get the idea.
As for recreational marijuana it's now a thing i could take or leave. it's a medicine and so essentially it's no longer fun.
I've not discussed this screenreader yet as it's been a while since i've had a blog i've been happy with.
Fenrir is a user-space screenreader for linux. I love it as i think it's a good replacement for speak considering speakup has some issues.
In reality all screenreaders have their issues but i prefer fenrir for many reasons. Mainly it's not built into the kernel and i can use it with an x terminal and get around orca's terminal bugs..
I think the biggest bug i've found in fenrir so far is one that i hope will be fixed before the next release.
we have 2 kittyrats and definitly dont want more. JIngles and bastet are like our children for lack of better wording. Jingles is starting to have i guess what i'd call old age issues she gets really bad hairballs that cause her to spew a lot. so off to the vet on the 10th, and maybe we can find out what's wrong with the jingle kitty.
Bastet on the other hand is a healthy girl but she's got this weird fear of mike's guide dog. She kind of freaks out a litle but she's also getting curious and brave so we'l see what she does.
The kittyrats will have their own wordpress blog soon like me. They've got a older blog but it's time to hear what they have to to say!
everyone probably wonders by now what's a kittyrat? chris and i started calling our cats kittyrats when we got jingles. Reason why is because she's got a super long tail and long body and legs. The term kittyrat stuck because well it's stupidly cute and fun.:P
We got a roommate a bit ago and now mike calls them kittyrats to!
talking arch was a project created by chris several years ago it provides a way for users to have an easily accessible talking live cd for linux so they can install arch linux and possibley other things. I also know of many who use it as a rescue cd.
When chris stopped using archlinux the project was handed over to someone who took it on and has been maintaining it up till their x8664 machine went boom. Mike and i have decided to take over the project and either a, take it over or b fork it if we can't take over the project. Decision soon either way because if i dont hear anything by monday i'll fork.
i've been freenode staff off and on over the years as things have gone. I've been back for a bit over a year give or take and it's been an interesting experience. Over all it's been extremely enjoyable however and despite the spam the strange ones and the bad ones so to speak it's been well worth coming back.
I've changed my schedule recently to cover US nights and early sleeping EU hours so hopefully we've got a bit more hands to help out when users need to get the help.
i've had multiple blogs in the past and i've never really kept up witht hem for multiple reasons. This is one of those blogs where anything goes. I may discuss personal things open sources stuff and such and there will always be kittyrats!
