Soon to be Extinct?…The Security Crisis Worsens…


One look at this title may be cause for some concern. Don’t worry…too much at least…the only one who need be frightened now is the one writing this piece…and anyone else suffering any like issues.

As this is officially my 50th post, like on my other blog I would have enjoyed to orchestrate a piece in which I thank all of those who have followed me thus far and wish them all the best. Maybe I can still do that…maybe I’ll take a rain check on that in exchange for what is bothering me so.

For the past two weeks, WordPress has been alerting me that I need to update my browser because mine is inevitably on the verge of expiring and will soon be rendered ‘out of date’. The issue? Well, this little crisis happened about a month ago and I updated my browser which was at the time Internet Explorer 8 with the new and improved Internet Explorer 9.

One would imagine that WordPress does not require such frequent updates.

However, this occasion seems to be worse than the last time this little issue began to bug me, and is no doubt going to get worse judging by the warnings that I keep receiving about aspects of my blog soon to be no longer visible.

I have already lost all of my notifications, my reader is dead, and I can no longer ‘comment’ on most of the blogs that I am following, and with that said, cannot provide others with my unbelievably intelligent words of wisdom (projectile vomits across room). (Yes, that last sentence was dripping with sarcasm).

On my dashboard, a nice red rectangle appears in the left hand corner that explains how I need to acquire an updated browser, else issues concerning security will most likely begin to manifest.

This is the case for both of the blogs that I have, not just one, which is perhaps why such is so disconcerting for me, since both are been plagued by the same ridiculous nonsense. Well, that’s my interpretation anyway.

I am unsure how these ‘security’ issues can arise since I do have Windows Firewall (which is on btw), I am equipped with Spyware Doctor to help remove any and all viruses that may attempt to invade my precious system, and I am equipped with Malwarebytes Anti-Malware which is supposed to find and remove, well, malware.

With that said, and additionally with everything telling me that I am virus and malware free, how can WordPress be so snippy about a possible infection or security threat? I can’t imagine how it could come from my computer. Might sound pretentious or egotistical, but really, I don’t, unless my WordPress blogs are infected somehow, but I don’t know how that could be.

I have tried looking at forums, and I found one that revolved around the exact same issue I am suffering from. Of course, there is always an addendum, isn’t there? The forum has been closed! The damsel in distress who had instigated the forum has apparently received the answer that she required judging by the message that was positioned beneath the location of her issue. Well, I’ll have you know, right now, I’m a dude in distress. Does that mean that I can acquire some assistance?

For such is really what I would appreciate acquiring now. I have looked high and low across the internet. I have sent tweets to WordPress help services. The only thing I have not done is call Microsoft, and until I can verify that it really is a Microsoft issue and not something to do with WordPress, I’m not certain I want to take such a step, for everything else is running flawlessly, with the exception of my blogs.

Additionally I do suppose I could acquire a new web browser from say Firefox, Mozilla, or another like service, but I would personally not want to take such drastic action either unless I have no other choice.

So, if anyone else is experiencing this issue, knows how to successfully navigate past this issue to secure a resolution or can help me in any other way or form, I would gladly appreciate the support. Thank you kindly.

Additionally, if anyone can supply any help, I may not be able to thank you immediately because, like I said, I can no longer comment on most blogs…which at times includes my own.

Thank you for reading!

Sincerely and with kind regards

Getting her out of my System


It would seem that I am still having considerable trouble attempting to adapt to a life that does not involve the woman that I had fallen for. After been told two Sunday’s ago that a relationship was not a possibility because the feelings I have are not shared by the woman that I love, my, you could say, heart, is still yet to properly fathom that information. Or perhaps it is just my ego, since I had not expected the negative response that I had given to me to be orchestrated. So, in an attempt to get over Elisha, the woman I still remarkably have feelings for after been rejected, I am dedicating this post to her, whilst hoping that releasing my feelings will help me move forward.

True, I am only twenty two and I shouldn’t be feeling a little desperate like it’s my final hour alive and I have no more time to waste looking for my one true love (I know, sickening, right?), but sometimes I just get fed up from not having someone with me. I don’t like beginning relationships after I have been in a previous one for a long term period, and the last relationship I was involved in concluded in January of 2011. I immediately began to develop feelings for Elisha in March of that same year, but I did not react on them based on principle – that, and I could not believe for a second that I would fall for another person so quickly, and an Australian for that.

Now, maybe I seem a little crude with my negative connotation of Australian’s in my last paragraph, but, and I have admitted this before so I don’t think I’m shaming myself too much by saying this; I have not once in my life had a romanticised relationship with an Australian woman before. I had a very close friendship with one Australian, who was a very good friend of mine, and I wanted it to be developed into something more and it was indeed on the verge of becoming a full blown romanticised relationship when that concluded. Forgive me if I fail to go into the details of that occurrence, which is a story quite unlike Elisha and I, and one I am not keen to divulge.

I will say that every time I have asked an Australian woman out (which is four times now), it has always been a negative response. Now, you may think ‘four times? That ain’t much’, but the thing with me is, I become attracted to people really easily. I don’t react on attraction. I rarely fall in love though, and I only attempt to have a relationship with someone when my feelings are absolute and true. My feelings for Elisha were this. That is why it will take me time to get over her, although I wish it was not the case. Somehow, we continuously seem to be bumping into each other more and more, despite the fact that there should only be another fourteen days left in the year when there is the distinct possibility of us seeing one another – then she will leave to Darwin and never return, and honestly, right now, I think I will be quite happy with that conclusion – because with Elisha in Melbourne – it is incredibly painful to have my failure, you could say, walking around.

Apparently it would seem that she could think less of me – in fact, it would even seem that if a single thought of me went through Elisha’s mind, it would be the fastest thing that was ever recorded. I mean absolutely nothing to her, and that is why it hurts – my feelings for her are the complete opposite of her own – on top of that, I always want what I cannot have, and I certainly cannot have Elisha, just like I cannot be King of Mars, which is why I want her so.

I have mentioned in the past, although I don’t think it was on this site, but to Elisha herself, that the aspect that attracted me to her was her capability to work proficiently. Whenever she put her mind to a task, she endeavored to complete said task to the best of her ability, and I found this trait to be quite attractive.

Whenever I have fallen for a woman, it was never her gorgeous good looks that made me have feelings for them; it was always another part of them; their intellect; their personality; their talent. In the case of Elisha, as previously mentioned, it was her work ethic, and because the feelings I had did not manifest from physical attraction originally, I knew that what I felt was real and true.

One thing I always found interesting about Elisha, was her communication style. When communing with friends, she was always loquacious. I will have to admit, I am not usually fond of people who talk a lot, and to be honest with you, I am quite often not very fond of the friends that the women I fall for have, and the same especially went for Elisha.

However, returning to her style of communication. Although she was garrulous among friends, when it came to speaking with people of authority, including communication professionals, or talking with groups that were consistent of ten people or more, she would suddenly become incredibly nervous. This shyness of hers I found odd, for physically and mentally I felt there was nothing wrong with her that would cause this trait of hers to manifest itself so strongly that it would cause her to squeak like a mouse or stammer on her words.

What I felt most intriguing about my feelings was that it seemed I had convinced myself that a relationship was possible because Elisha liked me just as I liked her. I have actually mentioned below what drew me to such conclusions, and what alternatively could have shown me that I was terribly wrong:

-In April, I rested my arm on the back of Elisha’s chair and she pulled away. If there was ever a clearer ‘no’, I am yet to see it.

-In late August, I provided Elisha with information that would help with a PowerPoint presentation assignment after she asked for my assistance. I had mentioned to her earlier in the year that I did not give out things for free and would ask for something in return, a condition which she accepted. This time, I mentioned to her that if she happened to use any of the info I provided, that perhaps she ought to take me out to dinner as a sign of ‘thanks’. The next time we saw each other, her friend went to sit near me, and Elisha dragged her away and said ‘I think he likes me’ and indicated towards me before sitting as far away from where I was seated as possible. No?

-Elisha felt confident enough to admit to me that she was nervous about giving the PowerPoint presentation to the class. I consulted her and told her ‘you’ll do fine gorgeous’ and squeezed her arm, and she did nothing to stop me from doing so.

-Elisha never used the information I provided to her. Or said she didn’t. Both are no’s I wager?

-Elisha skipped two classes that I was in after the presentations.

-The next time I saw Elisha, she said ‘hi’ to me, and said so in a very nervous tone. Yes? No?

-In that same class, she moved to sit closer to her friend, and then for the rest of the class couldn’t keep her eyes off me. I thought at the time that she had thought about a relationship with me and had concluded that maybe it wasn’t such a bad idea.

-Closer towards the end of the semester, I invited Elisha to a book launch that I was invited to. She said ‘no’ – a friend of hers had a birthday. The launch was moved back by two days and so I invited Elisha again, and received another ‘no’ – she was busy – a friend’s birthday. Two birthday’s in one week – that is either one helluva coincidence – or one helluva ‘no’ – maybe she simply lacked imagination to come up with a more decent reason not to go with me.

-However, after the book launch, Elisha apologised to my face for not being able to go. I said that it was no problem; that, as I had put it ‘I got two chicks to go with me’, these two women being friends of mine. Elisha suddenly looked taken aback by this comment and said ‘oh’ in a very jealous tone and quickly changed the subject.

-Back in May of this year, after Elisha and I had not communicated for quite a while, she said ‘hi Naughty’ (Naughty not being my real name) when I walked past her. She had been waiting for her friends to accompany her out, neither of whom had arrived when she spoke to me out of the blue.

-The week after during class, Elisha frequently looked in my direction from where she was seated right on the other side of the room.

So that is what influenced me to think that Elisha liked me, yet, at the same time made me wonder if she felt nothing for me at all.

Was I right to think that Elisha liked me? Obviously not since she apparently doesn’t, but, seriously, I think this is a must for me; was I right to make such interpretations based on the experiences that I mentioned above? Call it my need to know, and since Elisha wants nothing to do with me now, I sure can’t ask her such a question.

Also, I know that Elisha has stated that she doesn’t want to begin anything too serious for at the moment she wishes to study, and then focus on her career for the next five to ten years. Would this have anything to do with her answer to my relationship? Before you may or may not answer that, please consider this – Elisha has said in the past that she wants to fall in love. So, with that said, I ask again – does her want to focus on work affect her relationship capabilities?

I know that a couple bloggers have respectively told me that I should respect her wishes to not continue a relationship, move on, or even make her partially regret not having a relationship with me. I agree, all of these are important notions that I have accepted. I only wish to have answers to help me better understand where everything went wrong to help me officially move on, and to ensure I don’t make the same outrageous mistakes again in the future.

Thank you for reading and for any answers you may provide.

Sincerely and with kind regards

An Inspirational kind of Day


I am quite unsure how to begin…some bright spark might say ‘how about from the start?’ I could not agree with such a hypothetical response more than I already do…so, with that said…

…It is always amazing to be recognised for some reason or another, whether that be because your writing has touched someone on a level that was either spiritual, emotional, mental or another kind of perspective. Whether it be because someone agreed with what you wrote. Whether it is simply be because the other person in general likes what you created…either way, a positive reaction is always a very welcome one.

On that note, you may take one look at what I hath written and wonder ‘what is it this guy is saying?’ Allow me to quickly move on to the point of this post’s articulation; Very recently I was nominated for the Inspiring Blogger Award. I am very thankful to All World Issues for the nomination, whose blog can be found at the following link;

Now, there are 7 things that I need to state to the individual who nominated me. So, without further ado, they are as follows;

One: I have a blog of soporific love poetry that can be found at this link: Additionally you can find me on Twitter where I go by the username DerekChilds1. I know, I probably shouldn’t be using my seven points to promote myself, but, I really can’t help it!

Two:  Although I am in my final year of my undergraduate course at university, I would like to stay on to complete a Post Graduate course to obtain both a Masters and a Doctorate. I am majoring in Professional Writing, and would very much like to be a published writer one day, and perhaps in my spare time I could lecture and tutor the subject at university.

Three: My favourite television shows in alphabetical order include (although some have ended and some were cancelled): 24, 30 Rock, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Burn Notice, Castle, CSI: Miami, Damages, Hawaii Five 0, House, Human Target, Law and Order SVU, Leverage, Lie to me, Lost Girl, NCIS, NCIS: Los Angeles, Nikita, One Tree Hill, Primeval, Seinfeld, Smallville, Supernatural, Terminator: the Sarah Connor Chronicles, Walker: Texas Ranger, Warehouse 13 and Veronica Mars.

Four: I was in a band for nearly six years. I was the writer, bassist and co-manager.

Five: I think I have a crush on two of the women I’m following on WordPress. One of them knows, one of them doesn’t, and I would honestly like to keep it that way because I personally think that is perhaps a little strange. However if someone were to tell me otherwise it may help me develop a new perspective.

Six: I am a massive video gaming fan. This year I am quite proud of myself for managing to not be the spend thrift that I so often am, and instead I have myself quite the allotment of cash for a big spend up of games later in the year. I need a cool hundred bucks for each of the following titles: X-com: Enemy Unknown (Oct 12th), Doom 3 BFG Edition (Oct 19th), Halo 4 (Nov 7th), FarCry 3 (Nov 9th), Call of Duty Black Ops 2 (Nov 11th). I additionally need a good $500 dollars worth of that for Christmas gifts and another $220 for a university assignment, which may get in the way of my gaming experience.

Seven: I am the only person I know who is not anxious, nervous or terrified to give oral presentations of any nature. The trick I’ve found is that I simply don’t care what the audience thinks, and so I don’t care if I make a mistake or they in the end have no idea what I was just talking about.

Okay, now on top of specifying 7 things about myself, I also need to nominate another 15 people for the award. At the following link is where one can obtain an image of the award to put up on their site if they so desire.

(If you don’t know how to upload the award, here’s a couple quick instructions. Go into your Dashboard, go to Widgets, and place an image Widget anywhere onto your blog. Now, in the image URL, place the URL that you see above. Add any additional information that you wish, save, then go check to see if it worked.)

Additionally, below are 5 of the basic ground rules that are attached with receiving this award:

1. Display the award logo on your blog.
2. Link back to the person who nominated you.
3. State 7 things about yourself.
4. Nominate 15 other bloggers for this award and link to them.
5. Notify those bloggers of the nomination and the award’s requirements

With that said and done, here are the fifteen people in alphabetical order who I nominate for the Inspiring Blogger Award.

A Predictable Failure?

For anyone who has frequented certain previous posts of mine, you would know that I have on (frequent) occasion mentioned my infatuation with a certain young lady named ‘Elisha’. Well, my ingenious plan was to tell this ominous young woman how I felt about her. I had written a few soporific pieces in regards to my feelings of infatuated love for her, and if you have endured the hardship of reading these deranged cries of love and heartache, then I feel it is my duty to fill you in with the conclusion to this reoccurring love story.

Think of this as your gift for reading all of the previous romanticised drivel that I have thrust upon the pages of this site. Every story is deserving of an ending, even one as tired and boring as the one I have generated on this blog, so allow me to give you the end; in great, verbose detail.

If you have not read my previous posts, then here is quick and very brief recap (of course, my definition of ‘brief’ usually spans around two thousand words).

Two years ago, a young woman named Elisha from Darwin, the capital city of the Northern Territory, made her way to Melbourne and began to attend the same university as I, appearing in a number of my classes. I immediately became attracted to the commitment she applied to her work, in which she endeavored to accomplish everything she began with all of her capability. I found this personal drive of hers to be very attractive, and the fact that she was incredibly beautiful was just an added bonus. Smart, easy to communicate with and with a great personality to boot, she was gorgeous, and often dressed in rather short attire (so short that at times if it had been any shorter her vagina may have made an entrance); to me she was the bees knees.

I came to the conclusion that my telling her how I felt might adversely affect her time in Melbourne if it all went belly up, and so left it to the final semester of our final year together to tell her how I felt.

Well, now with that recap over, I can officially announce that Saturday past was the day that I told her how I felt – via e-mail. Yes; daggy, pathetic, and absolutely without dignity.

‘Why?’ you might ask me, stunned by this sudden admittance. ‘Why use e-mail. Why not confess it to her face?’

Well, you see, I think I’m too much of a gentleman (meaning I’m too much of an emotionally weak bastard) to admit anything to Elisha’s face, although I had every intention of doing so. I asked her at the beginning of Friday if I could borrow some of her time to discuss with her something that was weighing on me. She agreed to do so at the end of the day.

So, I waited, and waited, and waited, and after I had done waiting all that time I then began to get started on waiting some more.

Finally, by the day’s conclusion at approximately 3:46, Elisha and I had our moment to talk; all six seconds of it. The conversation went something like this:

Elisha: ‘Did you want to talk to me?’

The idiot (me): ‘Yes, but if you’re busy we can reschedule to talk next week.’

Elisha: ‘E-mail it to me, okay?’ (Quickly hurries for the door and is already half way across the room)

The idiot: ‘Okeay doakey’ (is this spelt right?)

Okeay Doakey? As I said it, the words did not even seem to be coming from my mouth. You know that moment, when it is like you are watching something from afar rather than actually participating in the occurrence? I personally had never had this happen to me and doubted it could happen – but believe me, if you have not yet experienced it, allow me to tell you – this kind of crap is real – and I warn you, it can, and will happen – if you let it.

Let my experience be a warning to you – now please, go out and live damn it, live!

Anyway – judging by Elisha’s power walk to the door that very action should perhaps have alerted me to the fact that Elisha’s want to talk to me was about as potent as my want to be eaten by a Great White Shark – which I do not want to have happen. My point? I think I should have realised Elisha did not really want to talk. Of course, been a Friday night she probably had a couple parties to get to.

So, on Saturday morning I managed to get up bright and early at around 4 a.m. to write my feelings down. She had told me to write to her, so I felt that I was doing her justice by following her wishes. In the end, I wrote five whole pages worth of me feelings, followed by a love poem.

I have no intention of producing either the confession or love, or the poem. No need to thank me, okay – please, thank me! Yes, yes, I appreciate your warm gratitude. Now, now, don’t get carried away! Please, hold the applause! Okay, let it go! Applaud me baby! YAY!

I will tell you that I confessed to being in love with Elisha. I outlined what I liked about her, and why I had these feelings for her, and then I explained why it had taken me all this time to confess my feelings as I outlined in the ‘brief’ recap. I then asked if she felt a romanticised, legitimate, long term relationship could happen between the two of us, and if she could provide to me an answer to my face, rather than with a tweet, e-mail, voice mail, txt or other like service in case there was a misunderstanding brought on by anything that did not involve direct verbal commentary.

Elisha however decided that the last point I had made in the e-mail was laughable – because she did exactly the opposite and at 11:05 Sunday morning sent her response by e-mail. Now, this I will provide to you:

Naughty (this part (my name) has been changed, obviously. If I actually went around being called ‘Naughty’, who do you think would have been blamed for the past twenty two years every time a cookie disappeared from the cookie jar?)

I just read your e-mail, and although I am flattered by your affection for me, I do not feel the same way.

I hope you can understand where I am coming from and that we can keep things at a professional relationship.



P.s (I always thought the ‘s’ in ‘P.S’ was meant to be capitalised. Go figure?) I know you would have preferred me to tell you this in person, but I think my response is clear enough that there shall be no issues with its interpretation.

So, after all this time blogging about this woman of my dreams (not in every post but in at least a good quarter of them) everything officially went belly up.

For anyone who has not read my blog before, you may take one look at what I just wrote and think ‘Jeeze, does this guy e-mail every woman he fancies? He must have never hit a home run!’

However, let me assure you I have had a girlfriend before, bearing in mind it was two years ago, back when people went around clubbing each other over the head with wooden sticks and wore the skin of animals over their private parts. When I did confess me feelings to that particular young woman, it was flawless, and happened a lot easier than this occasion. I told Elizabeth (my then soon to be girlfriend), (I must have an ‘E’ complex, first Elizabeth, now Elisha) that I wanted to be more than friends. Of course, I said this after I pushed her up against a wall in my home and kissed her lips for a good few minutes, before we later went to bed and had lots and lots and lots and lots of………… Yes, hot, steamy, exhausting, passionate, sweaty food. Okay, that’s enough innuendo for one day!

So, now you know how that ended. My Elisha, who is in fact not my Elisha, is to be never more.

Unfortunately, I have found that trying to get over her is a very difficult thing to do, and it would seem that I am completely and utterly in love with her. If I didn’t know this before, then the fact that I am borderline heartbroken due to the fact that I can’t be with her now should indicate that quite clearly to me in vivid heart wrenching detail.

Of course, I do feel that I screwed up, and that on the Friday I should have been a little more persuasive. This is all heading towards a question that I would like to put to my audience. That is if you survived this long…

…should I attempt anything over the next week or so to win Elisha over and gain her affection? This would include anything from kissing her, talking to her, etc, because I honestly am at a loss and would appreciate some much needed guidance. I haven’t had a girlfriend in two years as I pointed out previously, and I don’t know if it shows, but it would seem that I’m a little rusty; like a knight’s armour that was left out in the cold rain for forty five years.

Any answers would be much appreciated!

Thank you for reading people!

Sincerely and with kind regards

I hate been sick


I think everyone can agree with me when I say that I hate been sick.

Of course (and no offence in my saying this), but what kind of deranged person could honestly say that they enjoy been ill?

True, when you are sick there are a couple benefits;
-if you are a student you can skip out on school
-if you’re married you can skip out on having dinner with the in-laws
-you can legitimately skip out on work

Of course, these beneficial aspects are overshadowed by the fact that you are grievously ill.

I myself had a nice case of bronchitis this last week, and am still attempting to rid my body of the last few aspects of such an illness that doesn’t seem to want to quit.

There is supposedly a cold going around where I live. Many people are simply disappearing, so unless they have been taken up by the aliens, I will have to assume that they too are staying at home attempting to get better. It sucks though that what started off as flu-like symptoms for me turned into friggin’ bronchitis. Perhaps the fact that I have had it three times in the past fared me a little better as I knew what to expect and how to take care of the uninvited guest.

So, with that said, this is my reason behind why I have not posted anything recently. I do hope that anyone who is following this blog can forgive me for failing to contribute to either my blog, or your own.

I do suppose I will have myself some catching up to do in the near future.

Hoping everyone is faring a little better than I am right now.

Sincerely and with kind regards,

Naughty Nefarious.
