A poem while in transition.
We are worlds apart
And yet, so close.
That we each value
What we have, and not seek
To take what is not ours.
That we may nourish others
that we all may grow.
And not, lavish on ourselves
Or others, in foolish abandon.
As SARS Corona II (CoVID-19) wears on Grammar Captive picks up speed. It is hoped that very soon a new test server for the nudge.online, Grammar Captive, and GC Tutor websites will be set up on nudge.online’s new equipment. This test server will be integrated with nudge.online’s new host server, HostLabs (formerly Lunarpages), and the Bitbucket cloud.
The advantages of all of this are the ability to develop online when the HostLabs’ server is down or no internet connection is available, local testing that will be immediately compatible with the remote HostLabs’ server, and accessibility to any and all desired joint development initiatives.
Yes, all of this takes time. This said, patience and perseverance — namely, time — conquers all.
I wish my Saudi and other Muslim friends my very best on probably the most celebrated holiday of the Muslim calendar.
It has been a very slow start this year, but things will surely pick up once the CoVID-19 health crisis is behind us.
While you are fasting this year, keep in mind that your immune system is your best protection against the spread of any virus.
Stay strong. Keep your distance. And, stay healthy.
In an effort to accommodate students from all around the world Grammar Captive is taking advantage of its new office space and has posted a new time schedule. See Availability/Time Schedule in the mainpage navigation bar.
An open door brings much good fortune!
The Legal/Privacy and Internet Security menu options listed under the Other menu item in the navigation bar have been updated to better reflect changes in Grammar Captive’s recent server and business upgrades.
The doubling of address notification under the menu item Contact/Info in the navigation bar has been corrected.
In addition, Grammar Captive’s new physical address has been added and the old address removed.
Further, because the content now loads only upon clicking, the email address and telephone number can no longer be picked up by alien webcrawlers that use the information for unwanted solicitation.
The multi-lingual feature of GC Tutor is now available on iPad, though it remains a better entry from a computer.
The iOS operating environment does not take kindly to parallax, but at least the images that highlight the message are now visible.
It was recently discovered that the link to the author of the Grammar Captive webdesign, Hashimori Iwato (橋守岩人), was not working properly. This failure has been remedied. You can find the link at the bottom of the page, and you are of course welcome to take a look.
My apologies to the designer.
The still yet unexplained disappearance of the multilingual functionality of the GC Tutor landing page has been remedied and the functionality restored.
Also, the failure of the Captcha functionality in Grammar Captive’s local search engines will be restored soon. A PHP upgrade appears necessary.
Thank you for your patience. This year will be the transition year from development to production.
In celebration of the New Year Grammar Captive has completed a long awaited task. GC Tutor is now available in five languages: Arabic, French, German, Japanese, and of course, English.
If your browser language is any of the above, the GC Tutor webpage will now open in that language and upon clicking where appropriate will take you to a panel on the Grammar Captive mainpage that will open in your language, as well. Try it at
Happy New Year! There are many more good things to come at Grammar Captive.
And, thank you, Jafar, for your timeliness!
