Me: "Hi, turn on my heat please, the thermostat is replaced."
Power company: "It's on. We turned it on 4 months ago."
Me: "Uh... no, it isn't. If it were on I'd be using it..."
Power Company: "We don't do personal calls anymore. It's the landlord's job then. Stop wasting our time." *click*


The landlord doesn't know the innards of a furnace from the innards in his body. That's what he relied on by employing a super, who up and quit! He's completely technologically inept.

[This Hyena Feels... |-cold-]

So, where have I been? Freezing in Middletown NY.

Power Company: "Fix your thermostat before we can turn on heat."
Me: "It works just fine, see?"
Power Company: "It needs to -look- fixed, which requires a rewire to make sure. Cost: $5000."
Me: "............."

So I go up to the apartment of the Super of the building to get things sorted out.

Vacant. Room's completely empty, freshly hosed down. Door's wide open, some no-english-speaking immigrant is working on the door frame. From what I could make out of the monkeyspeak, the super up and quit. No one knows where he is and his phone is disconnected.

I'm in a room with no heat, no insulation, and tempratures rapidly dropping for the winter months. I have a shit heater that can't compensate because of no insulation and which will fry itself if I turn it on high due to poor quality construction (my father certainly got what he paid for...) Oh, and my food stamps and government aid was revoked. As my caseworker put it, it's "because of hostile politics in Albany. All my allies that got stuff done for us have been kicked out and backdoors closed. My hands are tied, we're fucked."

Essentially the landlord lied to us saying the apartment was ready when it was nowhere near, and bait and switched the wording so it'd be on the super's shoulders to repair shit so that he wouldn't have to. I try to contact him but he's all "don't call me don't call me" (about the only three english words he speaks) because he thinks the super is still around and refuses to believe he'd up and quit. I don't want to get into an argument or evicted yet because I have no backup plan and this landlord looks like he's about to up and quit himself, which means he'd evict everyone in the building...

Edited to add: Well, maybe I have one emergency route *eyes a lion* But that's a real worst case scenario and I'm exploring all other options at least three times first. Moving -there- would remove my disability aid benefits (crossing state lines)

Back online. The techs (plural) had to FIGHT with the wiring. "This place was wired by someone on some very serious designer drugs."

The paper work that was SUPPOSED to be filed from the last tech that was here? Never was. They were about to give up until they tried a "kludge" fix. But sooner or later this place is getting rewired. So many dead wires and crosswired connections in the cable box... someone really had a go at it.

For now though, I am going back down to the Apu-mart near me, get a few of those 99 cent Dew cans as long as my arm, put them in the fridge, eat some sugar cereal and microwavable raveoli, then go play Team Fortress 2 for a GOOD LONG TIME. I need to shoot me some people after all this hassle. Like, LOTS of people. Colombine-levels of pixel blood and exploding Heavies with their Brass Beasts... "You died as you lived... Morbidly Obese."

Pissed off. [Aug. 6th, 2013|06:42 pm]
Aegis J. Hyena
Posting from the local library here in Middletown, where I am the only native English speaker and everyone else speaks Monkey or Babboon (spanish). You'd think my father'd at LEAST check to see if the city was English speaking, but nooooooooooo...

The cable people came today to put in phone and internet. What do they find? Vandalism and slashed phone lines to my apartment specifically, and to a lesser extent elsewhere to places with tenants too old to know "what's a computer?". They need to call their specific tech qualified to run new line because they can't find all the damage. The damage looks old, too; my guess is that the former tenant of my apartment didn't have internet and just used a cell phone for everything.

I asked "when will this be fixed" and they gave me a blank stare before yelling into a phone in Monkey and going "to to for bizweeks" in broken English. Until then, I have no phone or internet. Fortunately I FINALLY managed to get online at the library, in which I had to fight tooth and claw because it's one of those "If you don't have a card, no computer allowed, NO exceptions."

But yeah. Pissed. Off. I'm going to go stir crazy if I don't get a connection soon.

On top of that, there's a lock on the gas line. The landlord doesn't know why that's there. The "super" in charge of the building doesn't know why that's there. I called them, THEY don't know why it's there because it doesn't show up in their systems "and our systems are holy holy holy, so you're wrong and we're right." So, no refrigeration for soda, cold or frozen food, or anything else, and I didn't get the sense they were going to send someone out to look!

Going to go nuts on a just cereal and microwavable fist-sized bowl of rice every day along with warm soda or apple juice...

Library's forcing me off. Don't know when I'll be back to see responses. Or if I'll be sane when I get back.

Oy vey.

Went to my father's. Leave early morning for apartment. Landlord of new location isn't there; I walk about a little bit getting a feel for the area. Have to cancel the internet people because we can't get in. Reschedule receiving a phone and internet service for late tuesday, their earliest. The apartments themselves are less "apartments" than "repurposed warehouse alley or cubicle storage" (because it turns out it's a commercial building, not a residential one) which to me is synonymous with crack den. Landlord "might be, might not be" there later. Brother's apeshit over the littlest things because they're not done according to his timeframe and no one else is around to keep him in check.

And the weekend hasn't even started yet. I might as well quote Murphy. What ELSE could possibly go wrong...

Oh goody. The landlord stopped by and flipped his shit at me because I left some of the rooms still a little messy (just a couple piles of garbage, nothing an hour or three won't clear out), I left a room or two messy, sure, but not anywhere near the amount of vitriol he spewed at me for a good 15 minutes. Bitched at me threatening small claims court, bitched at me about having to replace a toilet (which he says he'll bill me, for $300) --- now, I haven't signed a lease for him in YEARS. We were always good about getting rent on time, so he was nice to me. I don't think he's got the right to do this because no current lease. However, I'm not taking risks and will clean as best I can tonight for a few hours after I get off of this library computer (phone/internet disconnected).

I suppose I should be lucky he didn't threaten me by demanding another month's worth of rent. I know he's pissed at my brother for acting "higher than his station", but the landlord was always a high and mighty shit. I hope he doesn't decide "fuck it, I'm billing you anyway."

Internet disconnected at the apartment, so after I get off in an hour I won't see any replies.

Wow. [Jul. 17th, 2013|04:13 pm]
Aegis J. Hyena
[This Hyena Feels... |Disgusted with Family]

So... wow. For those of you still reading this...

My brother has decided to call the State and get my apartment condemned because some wimpy cleaning service couldn't finish their cleaning run in 4 hours. They whined, blew things out of proportion, said stuff was in the walls making people sick when it obviously isn't (or I'd be sick again as well as other people). There's going to be a VICIOUS explosive going off in the next couple weeks as the tectonic plate that is my family goes full supernova. My brother will make good on his threat and force me to live at my father's. That will cause my father to completely cut him off from all future gatherings. Then my brother will get spiteful and cause him trouble for the sake of causing trouble. I say that because if the roles were reversed that's exactly what I would do.

So I'm looking at leaving the apartment not under my own free will within two weeks, to my father's. I have a side-plan in mind (they know who they are) that I'd probably rather stay with and help out -somehow- with (I don't know how, but), but I want to see where this explosive goes off first and how it fractures the family. My brother had called back and went off on me a second time, I told him "I'm not speaking to you anymore" and hung up on him. That gives him the spite-trigger to call the State and cause trouble for me.

This is going to get ugly, FAST. It's out of my control, I can't reach my landlord to warn him (he has a cell phone, no land line, no cell phone listing services available) and with my father in NJ and my brother in some other state as he moved again to keep out of reach, getting people together to talk is out of the question. Then again neither of us would agree to anything the other said; we oppose each other being right for the sake of being an opposing force. My father has basically said "Don't you dare act on this, I told you to back off", my brother has not-so-politely told him to "fuck off because I'm right, what are you going to do about it, nothing if you know what is good for you".

Smell that family love, folks. OY! >_(\ *facehoof*

EDIT 20 minutes later: Moving confirmed, my father caved. Sigh.

So, where have I been? [Jul. 9th, 2013|03:15 pm]
Aegis J. Hyena
So all those years of drinking caught up with me --- not booze of any sort... the mountain dew. I had complete kidney failure and had about 98% kidney function shut down. Fortunately I got to a (competent) hospital in time, got a saline solution in, and got myself back up to my usual asshole self in a matter of a couple of days.

All in all they "got my numbers up" and the "keratines" down (fatal is 8, I was 7.8, normal is 1.2) but as usual no one tells me anything --- all I know is that there are lifestyle changes ahead, that my kidneys are 50% at best because of the damage, and that I have some other things to attend to.

So I've already cut ties to most of my other social spots and am going to maintain radio silence while I rest and recover from this little event, and apparently my father and brother have sprung a few plans of their own they had in the works --- they were WAITING for something like this to happen. Not in a bad way, mind, I don't have a problem with most of their ideas (and not because of this "event) --- the only reason I fought them was because moving out of Albany would wreck my SSI and a whole mess of other things.

So now, radio silence too on the LJ front until I figure my shit's together, or I'll just stick to what I did earlier and abandon this old, dead thing. I'll still be around (and still hoping out for a front desk job when lowen_kind gets his stuff built eventually.

Computer Fail. [Feb. 27th, 2013|11:02 am]
Aegis J. Hyena
Alright, I'm getting no response or blank expressions anywhere I turn, so it's time for a LJ post.

My computer is on the verge of perishing. I think there's a short in the motherboard. The mouse locks up and there is a low buzzing drone in my headphones. Not white noise like a radio, but a flat, low monotone buzz. This buzz doesn't go away until I reboot and even then it persists even after log off to the "shutting down" screen. I unplug the mouse and plug it back in, it has still "failed". I plug it in a different port, fail. I plug it in the back of the tower, fail. Oftentimes I hear the "device disconnect" sound effect happen, even though the mouse continues to work (for the moment).

I thought it was a short in my headphones as they're falling apart, but I see the signal in said phones flickering whenever this buzz is going on. I unplug the headphones, no fix. I plug headphones back in, "device not installed" error yet I can hear the buzz. I use my computer without sound or headphones, no fix (the mouse still locks intermittantly and once it fails it remains dead).

Diagnostics report everything OK, mouse working correctly, etc etc etc, which of course is just it lying through its 0s and 1s, but I've learned to expect nothing but shit from A) Best Buy and B) Microsoft.

Secondly, I can hear the hard drive spinning and clicking, which is a sure sign of it being on its last legs. Sounds like a phonograph with the needle scratching. So even if it weren't this mouse fail, the hard drive is perishing and my track record with installing new hard drives on old computers is 0 for 7 now (something has always gone wrong).

Does anyone, ANYONE, out there know of someplace I can drop about 2 gigs of stuff (as a single file) as storage/backups for free? I have some things on this machine that I CANNOT afford to lose (no, I'm not giving it to other people for safe keeping, I want a storage site, because reasons). I know I sent you an LJ message asking for help, Wolf, but I know you're busy and your home life is coming apart, so no surprise that I got no response.

ETA: Oh, lovely. Now it's doing it at the windows login screen too. *number of reboots has increased to 45 in 20 minutes*

So I go outside briefly to check snail mail (waiting on a new liscence because my current ID expired) And what do I see?

MEGA FIRE. I'm talking something Satan would be jealous of. About three blocks down, about four houses are wreathed in flames extending some 20-30 feet high. I counted about 9 fire engines.

Right then, the power went out (no surprise). So posting from a library computer saying I'm here but I'm going to freeze. No power means no heat. Lovely. I hope my ancient modem/router (10+ years) doesn't freeze in the big chill we're going to be getting the next couple days. They're saying the power will be back... wednesday. The power company and the story the police are feeding the throng of onlookers is that some shitfuck tried arson / insurance fraud and REALLY did a number on the area in preparation (in other words, they're saying whomever did this had help, and lots of it).

Now excuse me while I have no power, internet, or anything else until about wednesday. Library closes in ten minutes. >_>

Still no bonds, mail, bills, or anything. The mail delivery guy said there was a lot of drama recently, though, and that there MAY (third or fourth party info here) have been some destroyed-out-of-spite-because-fuck-you-and-damn-jail-for-life spite. His professional opinion was that it's all lost in the ether.

Went to the bank. They told me there's a "problem" (what problem or how to resolve said problem, they couldn't tell me) and I can't get my new debit card until... wait for it... February. Why? "We can't tell you. Come back next year."

With no card, I can't update my paypal information. With no paypal updated, I can't transfer funds to my bank. Without transferred funds I can't pay my bills. My father is sending a check "guaranteed delivery" but that's a joke here.

The first option I thought of was send everything to my aunt and have her deliver it to me because she lives close by. Oh look, she refuses to get involved. You can't budge her by ramming into her with a car, she's that stubborn. She knows it's impossible for me and my father to resolve this on our own due to conflicting schedules and more and yet she still chooses not to help when I ask for it.

Looks like the bond was stolen, along with many people's mail. A LOT of people on my street have not gotten mail all week... junk, bills or otherwise. Post office is clueless and there's whisperings of people being fired for "shady" reasons. Went to the mail office today to send out a rent bill and they were acting dumber than normal.

My debit card expired today. I was supposed to get a replacement in the mail back on the 15th. Nope. Didn't happen.

Went to the bank. Gave them my info to get a new card. Their systems crashed hard when they input the info. I get a new debit/credit card... December 20th. MAYBE.

Managed to pay rent before the card expired. I can barely pay my caseworker and she might want more as an advance.

I figure one of three things are happening. There's some new shady tenants both in my apartment and down the street. If not that, then the post office guy that delivers the mail quit, because I haven't seen any of THEM, either. If not that, then jerk asshole kids running up and down the street are filching the mail. There's been whisperings of that and far more cop cars than normal up and down my street as of late.

At this point, I'm expecting some splinter islam cell to jump out from a group of white folks tending the mail, go "death to america, because fuck you" and start a random massacre.

Never fails. I call to bitch out to my aunt, who refuses to get involved in anything in any shape or form, and not long after my father calls me and I get ahold of him.

Every time I bitch out to my aunt, things happen. -Every- time.

Wolf: Not much after she escaped the throne, just them deciding to return to the Undershadow and that's where I left off. I'll ask for another edit when I hit 50 pages or so then; I'd appreciate it if you not only did grammar and such but nailed me on logic so I can keep my story straight. If you can still do that via speed reading, cool. Is it a story that's keeping your interest so far? Do you want to see more?

This is the 5th time I've told Blizzard to shut down my WoW account. I just took a payment hit for a 6 month subscription. And I haven't played in 2-3 years! I don't even use the email associated with it anymore!

And of course, now my internet bill check will bounce because of it.

Not terribly worried because I get paid in a couple weeks for fortune telling (which WAS earmarked for a payment to my social worker, but...) and there's the bond (if my father will rejoin society and answer his fucking phone or answer his emails). It just means things are going to get ugly for a while.

Okay, it's my computer that is misbehaving re the download issues for word processors I seem to be having. I tried downloading several different types of word processings using Google, and in each attempt I get the same installer integrity failure "fuck you, I'm an NSIS Error" error or a corrupted .cab file or something. So I figure one of my basic installers for my computer has gone belly up. It's impossible that EVERY SITE I VISIT is corrupt, so it has to be my computer taking a shit. Malware scans turn up clean. Clearing cache and redownloading fails with the same error.

Wolf, you'd know this, I think... what's the main installer file called for installing anything on a Windows PC... would you know? Maybe swapping it out for an undamaged one might work. Or maybe you could upload your copy of all your install files somewhere that I could pull and point the exe to the folder housing the files when I'm done.

ETA: Livestreaming Minecraft one last attempt to get visitors tonight. livestream.com/pixelwalk at 8 PM Eastern.

Downloading Google Docs now. Maybe THAT will wor --- nope! Download corrupt! God DAMN it.

ETA 2: Someone gave me the "portable" version of Open Office... the raw files. My computer kicked and screamed, but I got it working. It works, that's all that matters.

Well, I suppose all this stress over the bond did have one positive effect. While walking home from restocking my mountain dew in expectation of this frankenstorm and its potential for internet-wreckage, the protagonist of a party of adventurers in my head backhands (backpaws?) me with a plot synopsis. "Ok, we've got these things to find. Here's why."

Now if only Open Office or some other form of word processing would properly download. I did run chkdsk, no errors. *shrug* If worst comes to worst, Google Docs. Or Wordpad.

Oh look, because my father hid the 10K bond, that should have counted against me when I first signed up for SSI.

So now they (the government pigs) are going to take money BACK out of it, should I cash it. Because my father hid it, it might be "shady", enough to have legal action on it (fraud). My only defense is to say I didn't know he'd pull shit like this and sign stuff to say I'm speaking the truth. And to top it all off, my father is completely unable to be reached (phone turned off, in another country on business) until monday when he gets back!

Best case scenario: My guess is I get half to 1/3 of the bond's value, the rest going to the government as fees, fines, and other shit. Worst case, fraud is alleged and the shit REALLY hits the fan. This is New York, they're not going to follow their own laws here.

It's out of my paws until next week. I'm just going to pretend the problem doesn't exist until then, it'll save me from lashing out.

So my father's out of the country. He called me and, in fact, did have a bond secreted away as a secret stash in case something catastrophic happened to me. Now that the government's found it, I have to cash it to satisfy them so I can keep my disability status once it dries up.

My current plan is to simply cash it, bank it, spend as needed, turn off the social security until that money is gone. Alternatively I thought I could trust it to him and he gives me like 1500 every 3 months or something, but he said in order to do that I'd have to cash it anyway. More prudent just to cash and bank.

Pain in the ass, at any rate.

In other news, I. hate. Skaven. (obscure reference, I doubt anyone will understand it)

Me: Oh hey, new Minecraft update. *downloads*
Minecraft: Run McPatcher, you tard.
Me: ... *runs McPatcher* (a graphics-fixing program for high def graphics)
Minecraft: You want the OTHER McPatcher. Version Peepee as opposed to Version Poopoo.
Me .......... *goes googling*
Website 1 promising McPatcher: You want THIS downloader to download all the new and fun movies/games blah blah blah noise noise
Website 2: No, you want THIS downloader!
(repeat ad infintum)

I'll wait a few days, then ask the forums where I can find an update without downloaders. I haven't been playing Minecraft much anyway.

In other news, my father is still not talking to anyone. No one can get through to him, he's turtled up and tuned out the planet. I'll give him until the end of the month then really start raising a stink.

My caseworker has informed me that my social security / disability is terminated as of right now.

According to the government, I have a 10,000 dollar bond available.

Oh look, I have a social security savings bond no one told me about that was bought 20 years ago.
Oh look, that bond made me lose my disability benefits.
Oh look, according to my aunt, my father has the bond. She is being very uncooperative, not giving me his home or work numbers.
Oh look, now I can't pay rent this month because of this.

The Livestream is up for another attempt at walking across the Minecraft Map, all 32 million blocks of it. Come join me as I burn villages, kill cows and pigs, run from walking explosives and try to dodge spiders and the like. Maybe this time I won't even fall off ledges, either.

I have a little spending money this time, so if I get 30+ (since basic livestream channels only hold 50) viewers and we can hold that number or thereabouts for a couple hours, I'll pick a viewer at random in the chat and buy them a minecraft gift code. Sort of like a raffle. So tell your friends to get into my livestream for a shot at the prize!

Livestream starts shortly, starting fresh from scratch on hardcore mode: http://www.livestream.com/pixelwalk

Edit: Stream over. Died at almost 10,000 blocks out. Will try again tomorrow, 8 PM EST.

Ping rapidtrabbit: Can you post a blurb to your LJ or something advertising Journey on a Pixelated Road? If I don't get viewers tonight as I try to walk across the entirety of one Minecraft map (32 million blocks), I'm going to stop trying. I also have a little bit of loose change, if I get 50 viewers (the maximum unfortunately for "unverified channels", I'll select a person at random in the chat to get a Minecraft Gift Code at the end of my stream.

Yeah, still doing it. I'm just taking a week off. Mostly because I have no viewers interested. Going to do a major push next week. Next air date will be the 15th, 8 PM to 10 PM plus, then I'll decide if I'll keep doing it based on the result of my "advertising push". I'll keep you up to date :)

So I streamed again a couple days ago in my attempt to walk across the minecraft map and died to a rookie mistake. 75,000 blocks out of the 32 million (not 3.2 million, I had it off by one decimal). I'll start again tomorrow, as I took yesterday off and am taking today off as well.

So in the meantime, hopefully some people can get the word out and advertise... see if I can't get more than just two people watching --- it's no fun with no people to talk to!

I was afraid of this....

My most recent payment for doing readings has been marked as sent. It is usually instant. This time, I never got it. I wonder if emails are case sensitive (poopy@poopy.com as opposed to Poopy@Poopy.com) since I changed my email from hotmail to gmail. I'll give it 36 hours for slow processing and then start to worry.
