Edward E. Rochon

Biography

I write for my health and the health of the world. Often the cure rivals the disease in grief and aches. My writing career started at twelve when I attempted to write a sequel to Huckleberry Finn but never finished it. My writings have included poetry, plays, a novel, non-fiction and writing newsletters for here and there. I have dabbled into short stories. Apart from newsletters, have one book (Paradoxes) published in print. I bought an audio recording of one of my poems but threw it away in disgust due to an inappropriate reading by the narrator. 'Contra Pantheism...' was my first eBook. Some 210 eBooks have been published since, including some books of verse, some of my essays collected into five volumes, three box sets and two volumes of collected poems. A few other types of literature are on my list of published works. My essays deal with fundamental questions of philosophy as well as natural philosophy (science.)

Smashwords Interview

Any eBook Literary Regrets?
To improve writing skills: write. Publish to publish better? It is easier for more writers to publish with eBooks. I just unpublished an essay (titled: New Pythagoras) purporting to demonstrate another theorem proving commensurable values for all line segments. The particular method has been swimming in my mind for years. I think I have it and do not. There is some sort of psychic compulsion about it. I seem to bamboozle myself. My head swims on this particular method. I told myself to hold back. I told myself to put it on the line and see if anyone attacks it. Better to eat crow than forebear. I attacked it and unpublished. Hey, it is a theorem, logic, true or not. What is the problem? And not all that complicated in essence, but I have tunnel vision to some degree. And I already have worked out refutations of irrational numbers, besides. My views of other writers, fiction or non-fiction, have a certain constancy of judgment. Opinions can change over time and so preferences. I have wild swings about my own poetry, fiction and non-fiction. It varies with the time of reading. Hey, that's not too bad. Or then, God, what was I thinking? On rereading, it is terrible. Fortunately, I all but never think anything is up to the mark, perfect. Nothing is complete, up to the mark for fallible man. The Mona Lisa is never done. Virgil wanted to burn that opus so many praise. This is not uncommon. I wrote a novel once, once, only once. Not my style at this stage of life. I like one thread, short and sweet. It would seem the secret is to sew many short stories together to create subplots and bulk. I had one central theme, knew it was far too short and tried to pad, resentful and bitter in the process. I was not a short story writer prior to the novel or into fiction. I wrote some plays before that. Yeah, I have some regrets.
Who are your favorite authors?
Hermann Hesse has a musical quality to his writings in German. Surprisingly, anglophone translators do a pretty good job translating Hesse (English speakers are notoriously bad translators. Great anglophone authors are generally not scholars. Samuel Beckett is a notable exception, but then 'Waiting for Godot' could have been written by any semi-literate.) George Eliot had a fluid style, but I do not like Middlemarch. I prefer Silas Marner when she wrote like a man. In the following decade between Marner and Middlemarch, she must have been outed. Not the biggest pouf in Britannia could have possibly believed Middlemarch was written by a man. Whoever outed George did a great disservice to English literature, according to my literary taste. Blake, Tennyson, T. S. Eliot, Yeats, Robert Frost, Coleridge, Poe and Matthew Arnold wrote some poems I like.

Infinite Numbers Debunked: Basics I
We use simple arithmetic to show infinite numbers undefined for math operations. We use palindromes, reversing numbers to show that irrational numbers must have last digits. We show integer complements (1 - m = c; m = mantissa) demand two last digits that must add to 10 while all other digits of the addends must add to 9.

The chase for the elemental substance attacked as futile, chasing what does not exist. The underlying base element of matter examined and shown logically inconsistent.

Une explication de la raison pour laquelle E = (1/2) mv2 (v au carré) a une accélération et une quantité de mouvement varient géométriquement par le carré. Doubler la vélocité augmente l'énergie cinétique pour la même masse de 4 (2 au carré), et non 2. Nous utilisons l'impetus (ou l'impulsion) dans l'explication, rejetant la première loi du mouvement de Newton tel que défini.

An explanation of why E = (1/2)mv2 (v squared) has acceleration and momentum vary geometrically by the square. Doubling velocity increases kinetic energy for the same mass by 4 (2 squared), not 2. We use impetus in the explanation, rejecting Newton's first law of motion as defined.

A new theory to explain Hubble Effect red shift. Some prefatory discussion of laws of motion, centripetal force and moving mediums of waves. We support Impetus as the true Law of Inertia, rejecting both Aristotle's and Newton's views. The core point is to explain red shift as an effect of transverse motion of ether.

Freud or Elijah? Who divines the truth of man's nature and origin?

Another explanation for Michelson-Morley Experiment. We surmise the local ether is carried with the Solar System by interactions of radiated energy. We surmise this ether is carried with atoms as well in the microcosmic world. An offshoot of my Unified Field Theory, I continue to modify my views to get a good model for heavenly motions.

(3.00 from 1 review)
The case for and against telepathy. We uphold it as reasonable. It's expedient to accept it as a precaution. Eyewitnesses confirm it. Proofs against it do not exist. A malevolent spirit could obfuscate the matter to persuade both sceptic and believer of their opinions to the detriment of human happiness and virtue. Evil encourages both atheism and the occult to afflict mankind.

Smashwords book reviews by Edward E. Rochon

  • WALKING INTO MURDER - Book One of the Laura Morland Mystery series on Nov. 22, 2013
    (no rating)
    This book meets all the criteria of criticisms lodged at the Miss Marple, Jessica (Murder She Wrote), etc. gang of serendipitous (sic) sleuths forever running into dead bodies. Improbability stretches the suspension of disbelief to the breaking point. We all know why Holmes, police detectives and non-consulting private eyes run into dead bodies. Isn't it obvious that Marple, Jessica and Laura are killing these people off (doubtless with accomplices) to satisfy a sort of Munchhausen syndrome where the nurse poisons her patients in order to heal them - in this case to knock them off permanently. Add to the fact that I knew this author in the past and seeing the many points of similarity between Morland and Lambert (some frankly admitted by the author), Lambert is clearly the murderess of all the corpses. It is chilling to realize that you dined with a murderess at some point in the past. Out of fear, I am tempted to give this the full four stars rating, but a sense of duty compels me to part with a mere two stars rating. Lambert should be encouraged to find a more plausible way to run into corpses. Peeking ahead to her other two novels, I suggest she either hook up with Thomas for business or put out a consulting detective shingle for four, five, etc. in the series. At least Thomas' business brings him into danger and potential murderers. TWO STARS: **
  • Rotation of the Suns on June 30, 2014

    Rotations of the Suns Review: I picked the shortest of the author's works (and free.) I am poor and impatient. Her profile notes her inclination to sentiment over thought in verse. If this is the case, meter and beauty of the language is paramount. The verse is deficient in these. Being feel tone imagery and collage, it is vague. Is it lesbian breakup or her artistic inspiration abandoning her? Or was her lover her muse? Maybe she doesn't care. I would like a hint as to which of the 3 messages is published. Lots of astronomy conveys loneliness quite well. The distance of the heavenly bodies with the hint of burning fire of love works well. But the flow of the language lacks beauty so necessary to a feel tone poem. The verse of signing her wrist with blood caught my attention towards the end of the poem. Sounds like suicide attempt in verse. I once slit my wrists without success and that may be the whole of the attraction. In general the 3 key things in most cases with poetry if you want to be read are: short poem, lyrical meter and memorable idiom. The whole book is one poem, too long for a poem lacking good flow. I tend towards the didactic with beauty as a heuristic device. So I am not a target reader for the author. If she plays music or sings, try composing your verse with some catchy background melody. If you did do this, I don't think I liked your music. Does she sing her music on YouTube? Maybe trying it would help her write better, the embarrassment.
  • Slip Slop Slap on July 26, 2014

    Nice poem! I'm 62 but I liked it too. You might consider editing: Be sure those seagull aren’t to near. They’ll snatch the food their hungry too! Maybe "those seagulls aren't too near."; "They'll snatch the food; they're hungry too!" I hope you are not one of those poets that resents editing advice. Anyway, the meaning is clear enough and the edits no big deal. English orthography sucks, but there is the kids to think of.
  • Dreams of the Last Days: Where are all the Stars? on Feb. 09, 2015

    Air Force plus Bible student equals dream scenario, space craft and Bible prediction. I have always found that any dream can be interpreted with diametrically opposite meanings, so I gave up studying my own dreams. A common opinion of the ancient Hebrew scholars was that dreams are so much nonsense or wish fulfillment. Let's say if the last days come and get over with, we will be happy, assuming not sent to hell. The exception is dreams sent by God. If God will not give you the interpretation, you might as well consign it to the devil. Lots of people are calling 2015 a bad year. Lots of people have been calling every year a bad year since bad dreams started. I have no answer for your dream. Pray for an interpretation or drop it.
  • Bible Prophecy - God's Agenda & Your Part In It on March 17, 2015

    Your suppositions on the prophecies of Daniel and related prophecies may have some merit. Your timelines might work and the 5th beast would conform to Islam. As for your analysis of the fall of man, a few points: Both statements made by Satan were lies. Recall that man was made in the image and likeness of God from the start. He did not achieve this by eating a piece of fruit, nor Eve. Ethics are innate or do not exist. The reasons for ethics are beyond definition, not being definite but eternal, spiritual and infinite. The facts of a crime are definite, not the determination that murder is a crime. God was indeed being sarcastic when he said that man was now as one of us. Note the 'one of us' comment as well. The scoundrel believes that he creates right and wrong just by a whim or by experience, distinct from eternal truth. Eve already knew right from wrong. She thought she was being cheated by God and took remedial action. As it was, the serpent was the cheat. Giving her husband tainted goods to eat was the true crime. By the way, when God laughs to scorn the the gentile nations in Psalms, this is sarcasm. There are some other cases of irony and sarcasm as well. It is true, that salvation is serious business. Of course men pay a heavy price for folly, and Adam, Eve and progeny have certainly paid a price. Ethics and wisdom must go together or they fall separately. A final point, you need to correct some spelling and grammatical errors at some point in the future.
  • Solar Power: Economic Disaster on June 21, 2015

    Lots of stats. I did not do, or verify the stats, and that is the problem with stats. On the face of it, he convinced me that thorium is a better option than uranium (except for making nukes.) But as for the solar critique, I deem solar more efficient in the long run when using direct conversion from collectors. That is, use it for hot water, for hot water heating, for low pressure turbines to deal with excess heat so as not to waste. One, we use solar hot water for residential and industrial hot water and heating. Two, have low temp turbines to burn off excess heat. Three, have a distributed network connected by pipes to reservoir that take advantage of area/volume savings in storing heat or cold. Area/volume means that as volume goes up, surface area dramatically decreases as a percentage of volume. This keeps heat or cold in much more efficiently. Solar trees could dot the city that open up to draw sun into a portal to underground storage tanks of water. The light goes in and reflective glass bricks or other reflective material fill the reservoirs with light to heat water. How hot? To just above boiling, so as not to put excessive pressure on surfaces and lower pipe bursting, etc. If water temp goes too high, cool by passing through turbine loops for electric power into grid. Low temp turbines work under less stress, are there in tandem with a whole network for cost justification. Hot water is cooled with cold water for that use. The hot water can be used for heating in winter and more electric power for A/C in the summer. Where to put tanks and reservoirs? Under lawns, under parks, smaller units in cellars, under streets. Basically, reinforced concrete with protection from water by sealant, reflective backing, and then glass tiling or bricks, such as to make good reflective surfaces. These will be repaired off season to keep the construction industry busy. The desperation of these contractors and employees to stay at work is a constant evil resource that corrupt pols and corruption uses that corrupt society. Check up on Boss Tweed, the Big Dig in Boston, etc. In cold climates, this is definitely a big problem. And construction contracts tend to be sporadic, giving a boom/bust factor that is not healthy for the commonwealth. A ready supply of work reduces the temptation to pad, job milk and corrupt the economy. Big reservoirs can store heat for days or weeks with considerable efficiency. A few yards below the surface, there is no penetration of cold, except in areas of permafrost. The earth is a heat sink. If these reservoirs are built to last, they will last for generations. The expense accumulates into bounty for the future. One unit of volume as a 6:1 ratio of area to volume. Ten units have a .6:1 ratio. Hundred has .06:1. Ships in New England hauled ice down to far away places without refrigeration in the nineteenth century. Big volume keeps cool or hot efficiently. Digging holes and covering them up with a few yards of cover is technically pretty easy stuff for construction. Then you have insulated access passages. As an extra benefit, rain runoff clarified and stored in these subterranean bunkers helps quench the thirst of the city and prevent loss to evaporation and runoff to the sea. The heating purifies the water. This is for washing and heating anyway, but still purified by boiling.
  • Alexander the Great: The Macedonian Who Conquered the World on Aug. 02, 2016

    Alexander made quite a name for himself in history. Such men are falling stars, crashing to earth to their destruction and detriment of mankind. If their impact is great, men take note. Drunk with wine, drunk with vainglory, drunk with self-deception, he makes a great scene, swelling the drama. The only thing that matters to man and society is to control and ennoble what goes on between the tip of the head and the fingertips of the outstretched hands of each man. Though surrounded by a million comrades, when the two enemy soldiers come at you, and all your comrades are dead, wounded or dealing with their own battles, it is your own hands and eyes and skills that will save you. Earthly success in the eyes of men is vanity. All good things come down from above. We should seek those things and not come falling back to earth as a shooting star. A man may rise to accomplishment; he should continue on his way and not be turned by applause that quite often turns to jeers the next year. Greatness is an ever receding star. Better to be great and unknown, than to be thought great and petty for all that. I do not agree with the tenor your work. It was of interest to read. Three stars.
  • Gluten: Worth The Risk? Solving the puzzle. on Sep. 08, 2016

    Previous in vitro experiments have demonstrated that gluten is digestible by humans. I cannot take later reports that it cannot be digested as definitive given the partisanship around this gluten matter. I wrote Ford about an Australian baker who says most problems go away with consuming white bread and old style long fermentation (a man with an interest in bread to be sure.) In spite of the general truth that fermentation breaks down, predigests food, Ford tells me long fermentation likely makes digestion of gluten more difficult. This does not sound right. Gut flora also break down gluten. Men have eaten these gluten foods for thousands of years. It is true that genetic modification has greatly increased gluten to aid bread production and increase protein tor the protein deficient poor. This could alter things, maybe. Roman armies (when needed) ate raw gluten grains with vinegar on forced marches (vinegar aids digestion and food breakdown) without losing their empire. This is all suspicious as to intent of the gluten-free crowd. We have these people who want to kill off about 7 billion people to (sic) save the world. Too many mouths to feed? We have too many idle hands and ill-used, ignorant hands to make it easier for tyrants and evil oligarchs to rule. That is the real problem. And we have this nature worship nonsense too. Oh, and maize would be the only real option to replace these gluten products along with oats (oats not as varied as to climatic conditions.) We note Monsanto Chemical is trying to corner the market with GMO maize, robbing farmers of their crops by natural dissemination of seed and hitting them up with patent infringement. What outrages? The bug colony nature worshipers are hard at work. Otherwise, the book is written well enough.
  • Chakras in Yoga Meditation and Stress Relief on Oct. 16, 2016

    Shea says it is OK to use the placebo effect in healing. For example, use a crystal associated with a Chakra to help heal. Suppose you are in the wilderness, get sick and lose your crystal that helps heal your tummy ache after eating bad berries. Have you not created an unnecessary stress on the healing process? Is this not superstition taking hold of you? In acting, it is advisable to remember your lines cold, without associations, assuming you are alone and learning lines. Why? When the other actors and set are not what is expected, they tend to throw you off balance. They do not fit in with your imagined idea of the scene. Then you get upset and this throws you off more in a vicious cycle. Many people remember things in long lines of association, like a chain of beads. If they are reciting and lose their place, they must start all over, perhaps hours of recitation. Alex Haley of 'Roots' fame experienced this in Africa, if memory serves me. That is why you should remember the beads in a random access manner, as placed on a pattern such as a Chinese checkers board. But what if the board tips over? Well, this is in your mind, not physical. Second the practice of memorization gives you confidence and grace under fire, making a tip unlikely, regardless of stage lights blowing out, flubbed lines by other actors, or whatever else comes up. We used to save computer memory on tape due to its high storage capacity, but it was not random access and bad for that reason. This is why we strove for high capacity random access hard drives. And unnecessary associations can throw you off, freeze you up in a crisis. Be wary of mnemonic tricks to remember well. Try to learn cold with essentials: the face, the name, initials are OK since they are part of the way we ID people. This is harder but better in the long run, less likely to make you superstitious and spook you out. Every word has many associations that may drag you away from the path of truth. I use memory here as an analogy to the crystal placebo effect, not that Shea dealt with memory in her book.
  • Love...Is What You Do! on Sep. 20, 2019

    Just finished reading your book of love poems. More of a prosaic storyteller, than poetry weaver? You favorited me, so I’ll dare a bit of advice and hope you will not think it a vice. If you do not love repetition, you do not love music and do not love poetry the way you should. Play on themes as song lyrics play back on the refrain written before. Weave a web and not always so obvious. Look for words and phrases that have two or several meanings, going off in diverse directions, sometimes in apparent contradiction. And don’t forget to rip off the bards from time to time. Great artists steal, though try not to get caught or accused of plagiarism. Regular meter and rhyme (end of line or alliteration) help make for a tight weave. Make a tapestry. #17 Love in Yellow played on a theme and played on a word (one of your better ones for me.) #20 The First Date played on a theme. It was also negative in emotional intent but with an abiding love for child to make it OK. #31 Empty Promise had that collage technique, that crazy quilt construction that Stevie Nicks uses in her lyrics (hard to know what she’s talking about, but a challenge to puzzle over.) I am sure that Sting, Stevie Nicks, Carole King, William Blake and T.S. Eliot would agree with at least some of this. Try to make a tapestry; write to some favorite music as a cadence? You seem very nice and would love to give you unconditional praise, but no can do. If you were twice your apparent age, my rating would be halved. But you love to write. As Sid Caesar once advised an audience I once was in, when asked how to be a good writer: write, just write. And maybe think about what you are doing well and not well? Oh, Annette please spin a net It’s the Web you see Worldwide A. Foster? Far famed Jodie? Alicia her name, see. Was it the Prez threat muse call? She, that men kill for with glee Ah, a bit kinky agreed Fear not, ‘tis no Hinckley seed Planted here, just let it be. If you chafe at criticism, remember that those who can, do, and those that cannot, teach. Well, not necessarily. After all, there is something called bad poetry. God bless!
  • Tradition on Sep. 22, 2019

    I just recently reviewed your book of poems. You looked youthful in that ‘pirate?’ Smashwords profile picture. From your photo in Tradition, I would have modified my review rating accordingly. Oh, are pirates and Christianity altogether kosher? Do they go together? You start off with fairly short and simple sentences. You want to appeal to the kids? ‘Tis a gift to be simple? Oddly, I have found that if you want to write more briefly, keep the word count down, you would be better off writing longer sentences. Mind you, longer sentences are much easier to mangle, bungle, but for that very reason challenge the writer to the heights of prosaic glory. If you do it right, the kids can follow it, just keeping the vocabulary simple enough that they do not have to peruse the dictionary after every phrase. You see, dependent clauses actually require less words, and interjected phrases require less words in the context of the long sentence than if you broke them down into small sentences. (Not saying you do not use dependent clauses in Tradition at all.) Simple sentences have their place and work quite well in Hemingway’s ‘The Old Man and the Sea’. Funny, Hemingway was supposed to be the quintessential journalist novelist, short Anglo-Saxon worded prose sentences. Later, I found out that Hemingway loved to write long sentences to the uttermost degree that he could get away with, or even not get away with. I picked this up by reading some other works of his that did not use the short sentence technique. G. B. Shaw once wrote that he would have written a shorter letter but didn’t have the time. It takes longer to write short. You have to use your words carefully, struggle to be brief, to get more packed into each sentence. It is hard work to do things the simple way. That is why people put up with so much bureaucratic red tape, inane traditional ways. It is too much trouble to do it better. But we must try. Remember those strings of tinsel and Christmas lights that go around the tree? They accentuate the light bulbs, angels and candy canes. Yes, it is no crime to use simple sentences. If Shakespeare interrupts his iambic pentameter with a one-word line of ‘Yes’, it is not mandatory to add 9 more syllables to make it pentameter. As for cooking on Christmas, I remember my mother’s homemade buns just out of the oven, with real butter, just plain white leavened bread but tasty, and my grandmother used to make vinegar candy that was good for the throat, sore throats, though maybe a little hard on the teeth. But then, you never gobbled that bitter stuff down as you would M&M’s, Gummy Bears, etc. There was that ‘traditional’ fruitcake that people only ate a little piece of with melted glaze out of an insane sense of duty to tradition, and the rest of the cake hung around for months in that metal container, that eventually would be used to store sewing material, nuts & bolts (not walnuts, metal nuts.). Gingerbread? Yeah, but “Nibble, nibble who’s been nibbling on my house?” Oh, let’s have the kids home for dinner, out of the cold and into the warmth of the oven (as in - in the oven if possible.) Your climactic scene did make me almost well up with tears, so the main theme was effective for me. I will add a few stars just for that. I would have written a review with longer sentences, but it is Sunday and we are supposed to rest. Or am I the priest of review required to work even on the Sabbath. Jesus says that God never rests and to pull your sheep, and son, and wife out of the ditch on Sunday too, when needful. And it helps to use analogies better. The temple of dad’s soul, the true house of God, and the church. Maybe throwing in contrast? Love your neighbor as yourself; honor your mother and father; but “unless you hate your mother and father and follow me, you cannot be my disciple.” Is hate the opposite of love, or is it lust? How can you love justice and not hate injustice, love God and not hate the evil one that tries to separate men from God? Do you love the sinner, the rapist, traitor, slanderer, whore, pimp, flim-flam man? Or do you love the capacity innate within all men to repent? The repentant thief is no longer a thief. And if you say, “forgive me, Lord,” and then continue to steal in heaven, is that what heaven and righteousness are all about? No, love and hate go together. Love will never and must not conquer hate; it must conquer lust. Lust often comes in the form of vanity and conceit, as in I want my daughter to marry a winner as defined by me, rather than a liver that wins to live and not lives to win. Is it love or just willful conceit? A man leaves his mother and father and becomes one flesh with his wife, and vice versa for the wife. Marriages are made in heaven as we say. The bitter man claims his marriage was made in hell. Is marriage the problem or the base motives of the bride and/or groom? And remember, we are all on – on the Job training in life. That is both job and Job (as in the man from Uz.) We must all learn our lessons. This current world is no bowl of cherries. So you do well to write about important things. You wrote about something well worth writing about and get an extra star for that.
  • The Amerissance! on Jan. 01, 2020

    Well, this sounds like a puff piece for Trump. There is the poem and the ideas and should the ideas count or be noted in the review. You seem to have some slips: then for than, in for is, etc. or maybe not, some kind of wordplay. Meter and free verse maybe a little less than two. Lots of passionate intensity that counts for something with me brings it to a third star. As a Bible thumper, assimilation just means be what God made you, not your history, our history, your indoctrinated persona but the image and likeness of God. We need a wash pot not a melting pot. Sure if the jobs require it, you need to speak English, but Switzerland has survived for centuries multilingual. Better translators, computerized text and voice would be OK with me. The deal with illegals is that they came without approval. That they're bad for the economy is bunk. Environmentalism and global warming crap is more of a threat than poor folks driving down wages or taking jobs. Immigrants generally increase economic activity. Yeah, the internationalists are using immigration to take over the US. I'll make a prediction that it will boomerang. Taking people from their native culture to do God's work here will turn the immigrants against their would-be masters. What work? 1. Be fruitful and multiply (children and in wisdom), both necessary to prosper, instead of abortion, euthanasia and economic crap about running out of this and that. Jill Stein is more dangerous than wet backs. 2. Subdue the earth. Bring it back to paradise lost by nature worship symbolized by listening to the serpent of God's creation rather than the creator. Environmentalism is crypto-idolatry and nature worship. 3. Obey the golden rule; we must care about the Chinese and any loss of jobs to many people there that just want to survive. We pay heed to Russia, Africa while obviously placing our own affairs first as a matter of duty. 4. Aspire to God, his omnipotence, omniscience and perfection of character. Man is not the proper study of man, your fellow man an ignoramus as yourself. Don't believe in God? Imagine him and aspire to him. They want to turn us into the new Nazis and Trump a new Hitler. Deutschland Over All is Godless crap. The Angel of Death had other ideas, that nation brought down by stupid creeds of degenerate philosophers. One nation under God, men as the image and likeness of God, forever his children, always obedient to his edicts, this is our salvation. The loss of faith of others only makes your own shine brighter by default. Those who have not, will lose what little they have. Their loss of faith will accrue to you, seeing that more will be required by fewer to uphold God's plan and glory for America and the world. Faith, if true faith, will rise to the occasion. The Brotherhood of Duty needs no lodges or ciphers or secret meetings. It is vile to obey the orders of traitors, seditionists and criminal incompetents. God knows who is doing his duty and he will be the C-in-C. The last best hope for America is Christ not Trump. Trump can be impeached and convicted a thousand times over, Stone illegally silenced 22 times. The Internet manipulated or not, the only link that matters is to God. OK, so you ranted (as the saboteurs will claim), and I rant back in review, agreeing and disagreeing as my own perceptions dictate.
  • Visual Basic for the Approved Workman on Jan. 15, 2020

    I was looking for a VBA for Excel guide more than just VB, but it was free and hey it’s got the same type of code for the most part? God if MS would just create an alphabetic list of VBA commands and parameters with brief explanations, format and a few examples! (If this exists, I could never find it.) Then show 6 to 12 basic macro/programs, especially how to run loops! (And imbed it in Office, not online.) It would be nice to categorize the list by procedures, methods, maybe break down the alphabet into letter groups, have some groupings for loops, formatting, creating arrays, etc. with brief explanations. Have (M), (O), (OM) for mandatory code (very little), options and mandatory words for Options (OM). This is how they did it in the old days, and how about context specific help. Could Wesley make an add-on or Excel file with such a list, with macro buttons for different groupings over several sheets? One sheet for various groupings by types of operations: loops, arrays, etc. I remember how easy Symphony macros were in comparison to VB. Jonathan Sachs knew how to program, while Bill Gates just bought his stuff and tweaked it a little. He had to come up with a good spreadsheet and Excel was a good competitor. I recall someone telling me how he loved Excel, used it for everything, text editor, word processor, calculator (Symphony used a spreadsheet for its basic WP.) Jim Manzi took over Lotus and forced Sachs and Lotus into trying to fit an office suite into one app: Symphony. Well, Symphony failed and Sachs quit rather than being forced to humiliate himself in what he realized was a hopeless task. Manzi pushed it anyway without Sachs. Thanks to Manzi, Lotus sank and MS rose. Yeah, I wanted VBA and that’s not specifically what this is about. I wasn’t happy anyway so give it two stars in Jesus’ name, amen.
