No Advertising Third-Party Consumer Technical Support with Google

Image Source: Google.com, Lenovo; Design by Patcoola 2019

May 2019, Google implements new policy to please Google partners. The “Third-party consumer technical support” policy prevents advertising for services provided by the computer services industry. Computer service providers cannot advertise their services with Google AdSense anymore. The new policy makes their services such as Repairs, Virus Removal, Password Resets prohibited. It’s no secret that the computer services industry is dying. Many countries are pushing for a “Right to Repair” law, and many people do not own a computer anymore in favor for a smart phone or tablet. However, this further demonstrates that manufacturers do not want their products fixed, and Google is anti-competition.

[Life] Network Storage Update

Last week I upgraded my network storage from 2.6TB to 5.3TB RAID 5. The process took about a week and 9 hard drives were shuffled. Now the majority of my files are now in a single place. Two of the old 1TB drives have been moved to a computer were it is used in RAID 0. I’ve cut down on two 1TB external drives for archives. Another old 1TB drive has been moved to another computer. The process was long as terabytes of data had to be relocated from external drives or other computers. Upgrading the network storage was very easy. Storage and access is much better now.

My New Tripod’s Missing Shoe

After many years I finally decided to buy myself a tripod. Since we don’t have any good stores where I live, I had to order the pod. I was so excited because this would be my first real tripod, and it would arrive for my birthday. I ordered the tripod from a big Canadian website at a great deal of 160 dollars Canadian. When it arrived two days after my birthday I was so excited to open it. My parents made fun of me and said things like “why the hell did you buy that”, “You’re not a photographer” like always. I had the tripod siting up and started to look at it, the pod was missing a piece. I looked all over for the camera plate but could not find it. My beautiful new tripod was useless.

Claymore and Freezing Manga Similarities

As many have probably noticed, Claymore and Freezing are basically a rip-off of the same plot.

The both series are in a world where females are implanted with the flesh of an alien species to protect the world from a threat. In Claymore, the setting is the medieval ages where Freezing is in the future (2056?). Claymore focuses on the monster transformations and characters’ psychotic episodes where Freezing focuses on being erotic.
