Clear Browsing Data solved a problem opening Documents in the Apps

Image
In several of my apps users can view documents(PDFs) that I have stored on Google drive.  Recently whenever I would try to open the document it would hang and I would get a spinning circle.  Since the embedded browser is an older version of Internet Explorer.

Promoting my twitter posts

Image
I have a tweet where I give the url for my Joe Biden Supporter app.  To promote it I paid the minimum $50.  Minutes later I got a message from Twitter that they had stopped my twitter ad campaign because they say it violates their Ad Policies.  This is very upsetting to me and the fact that no matter what I post I rarely get likes and comments.  My plan is to use this blog more and get off  of twitter and facebook.

I KNOW LESS IS MORE, BUT MORE IS SCARY. SO THE MORE FEEDBACK I GET, THE SCARIER I GET, AND I DON'T LIKE HORROR. SO YOU KNOW WHAT'S WHAT - Derrick W. Jackson

Learning something new can be intimidating and scary like the villian Jason from the Friday the Thirteenth Movies.  I am very inspired right now and the the more views and comments that I get the scarier I'd become.  I want to be scary and I want the write the best horror movie ever.  My Apps and training videos for the C# Programming Language.

BE THE TORTOISE - FINISH THE RACE

The Old fairy tale when the hare raced the turtle and the hare lost because he was goofing off while the faithful turtle kept walking to the finish line.

I have stoppd and started so many times in my life.  I've done computer work, art, and writing. I got into trouble  16 years ago and I am still dealing with the ramifications of my actions.  For years I was depressed because I wanted my life back.  In 2017 I started back drawing and up until March 2020 I decided to make being an artist my career.

So I've done a 180 degree turn back to working in the field that I was educated in.  Because I was born with a physical disability and then I started having mental health issues in 1999 I get a disability check from Social Security.  Even though I worked and paid into the system I felt guilty for a long time that I was getting the check.  Because I have a record I can't get the type of jobs that I use to have.  These factored into me being depressed for years.

Getting a Digital Certificate for your company

When ever my app's setup runs the first time I get the message that this app was created by an unknown Publisher.  To resolve this you need to get a digital certificate from a company like Digicert or Verisign costs anywhere between $100-$400 dollars a year.  You then have to update you setup with that signature.

Goals for Jackson D.W.

With me being a one man shop right now I have to take my time with app development.  1 man can only produce so many apps.  It also gives me the chance to really learn the C# programming language.  As I journal setting up Jackson D.W. and the Projects I undertake, I want to make it fun, entertaining and definitely educational.

I've chained career direction about 2 months ago.  I'm back to doing Windows App Development using Microsoft Visual Studio and C# programming language.  I want to focus on eventually doing C# training videos, app development, and finally consulting.
