Ezra’s not saying you should be locked away.

He’s saying that you’re smarter than you think you are.

Can’t one of your buddies in the shelter help you? I bet you’ve met some decent people there. Not all shelter residents are total crazy asswipes.

I don't read anywhere, where anyone has actually said that they want to see you locked away.

We are pointing out your capabilities.

Most of the folks on here have a lot of their own challenges, and don't have the means or the time to tutor you in person. (I am trying to "read between your lines", that seems to be what you are asking of us on here?)

A lot of kind folk have given a lot of helpful advice.
Some of us, like myself, are just self taught -learn as you go.

Last week I watched a movie from the library, "A Street Cat Named Bob" it's an incredible true story about a formally homeless man, in the UK.

Anyway, I wish you well ASS-P. We are just trying to help, in the limited way we're able to.

I think if all he writes about himself is true he is not able to take care of himself and should have been in a care facility a long time ago.

Keep in mind I am saying this as someone who can not take care of himself and will be living in a care facility.

...If I didn't spell this out. I don't imagine I can likely get help in I.prkving my computer skills from anyone here
I don't see it as likely that I would get physical help from a WL person
..I would like help :( . If I had a " xtabler " situation, perhaps I could advertise on Craigslist for it :| . O STILL don't agree with Exra's " If you haven't figured out computers enough by now. you should be locked away forever! " :cry: .

Actually it is more like I suspect he is more clever and more capable than he presents himself to be.

It is more like all your lifestyle health problems and being out on the street as you describe, means you can not take proper care of yourself. Also you yourself are the one who basically said you need hands on significant support.

Please don't apply on Craig's List for anything. That's a good way to get murdered. Consult an agency...

What make of phone do you have? The internet browser on the phones I’ve had let you have more than one screen open at a time - they just cover each other up until you press in the corner of the screen. You might have a lot open and not realize it!

...Yes, I did, thank.you

I am now in.the same shelter situation I was in.last. It's decent as a facility, but it just foesn't allow me enough rest :( , and I'm having to.walk around all day again, especially exhausting myself now with a heavy duffle bag :( . The hospital treated me, but was - briefly n-- inefficient;bureaucratic involving my pills - I have none now :| - and was not offering much/" oh. it's chronic ". regarding my illnesses/declining health :( .

...Thank you, though zi don't know whether I can do anything with those. I am exploring tjongs.
To-day, I'm going to spent lots of money on taxis so I can get this ultra-heavy duffle bag in my storage place - There's no bud to there weekends

I may spend money on another heavy backpack after all - it may be less bad for my back then lifting up Goodwill/Walgreens"/Target bzgs with my stuff - Or maybe I'm trying to tell myself I csn " still " be romantically Jack Kerouac/Woody Hithroe hpmrleds. I can " still " ramble around and play my harmonica. so to speak :( .

Just as a reminder computer lessons are free at any public library.

Santa Cruz Public Library: Tech Tutoring

"Sometimes one-on-one help is what you need.

Meet with a tech savvy librarian to ask your tech questions. This is your opportunity to find answers and learn about a wide variety of things, like how to download library ebooks or watch movies on your tablet.

^ You .................^ Librarian

This has been readily and freely available to you for years, perhaps decades.


Or does it have to be someone from WP who should travel to Sana Cruz?

What exactly are you fishing for?
