More Freedom, Less Repetition

It is now possible for return visitors to open to the Grammar Captive mainpage without having to view and close the same two splash panels each and every time that they visit the page.  This suppression of senseless repetition even occurs when one accesses the mainpage via the landing page.

CAUTION:  This mechanism will not work for previous return visitors until they have downloaded the page twice.  The first time will set the local storage parameter.  The second time will activate it.

This new mechanism has been achieved without the use of cookies.

In the meantime, installation of the new software necessary for creating historical graphs of visitor data has run into a temporary impasse.  Hopefully this problem will be resolved in good time.

Life is full of surprises. You may quit, though, if you have grown weary of their outcomes. For, after all, survival is but a first step. It is a primitive instinct, and although human, does not distinguish you from other animals. Accordingly, if it is all that you can achieve in life, do not be surprised that others treat you like an ordinary animal. Alas, it is good justification to depart when you have grown weary. Before you go, however, look deep inside, for society owes you nothing, and even your parents are likely to forsake you, if you are not grateful. Look to see, if you are not the cause of your own demise. Have you said thanks for all that you have received, and have you given in return for all that you have taken? John F. Kennedy once stated "Ask not what your country can do for you; ask what you can do for your country". Obviously, he was not thinking of taxes, but the help that he would require to become an effective president. Little that is great can be achieved alone. Then too, it takes great leaders to motivate humanity and move it forward in a manner that we can pave the way to a better tomorrow. The world is in need of good leaders. In the end, no one owes you a living, but if people see you struggling they are apt to lend a hand. Just do not be afraid to reach out. And, do not quit, if nothing is given in return. You have a right to your own life and the pursuit of your own happiness, so do not be afraid to claim what is yours. Just do not take what belongs to others, if it not without their permission or obtained in fair competition. And, cry out when you have been cheated, but only if there is something to be gained from your cries, for few people like a cry-baby. Be judicious, strategic, and select your battles wisely. Do not waste your time with trivial injustices, for we all make errors, and we are all, therefore, subject to the injustice of others. It is the very thought of exercising my freedom of last resort that keeps me alive, for it is the comfort that I can put an end to my suffering at any time that allows me to endure enormous pain. It is what gives me the courage to fight for what is right without fear of losing. It is a powerful freedom that you should never surrender! Just do not make pain your goal, or you will surely finish a loser. Then too, never place pleasure over goodness and know to distinguish between the two. In liberty, Roddy

One thought on “More Freedom, Less Repetition”

  1. P.S. The second splash panel that outlines the Grammar Captive website is still available for viewing on a tablet or in a computer browser window and can be reopened at any time by clicking on my image while on these devices.

    I have made the splash panels impossible to view on the smaller viewports of smart phones as they simply do not render properly in such a confined environment.
