Friday Fun Trifecta #13

If you remember a while back, we did a segment here on SDMcKinley.com called Friday Fun Links. Fun links have evolved into Friday Fun Trifecta, where I will feature one thing of each – music, book and visual arts. Welcome to Friday Fun Trifecta #13, in appreciation for artwork.

It’s Friday again. How am I doing? I had some great relaxation during the night and that makes for a marvelous Friday to wrap the week up splendidly.

Table of Contents

Book:

The Sigma Protocol by Robert Ludlum

“Calculate the odds, and recalculate, and recalculate again. And then just go with your gut instinct.”

*Chapter 5, Page 79, Robert Ludlum – The Sigma Protocol

“The Ghost was an in-house nickname for the longtime director of the Internal Compliance Unit, Alan Bartlett.”

Visual:

I’ve always LOVED these isometric pixel artworks – Study and living room design by  Cutiezor. By the way . . . you know what I heard about yesterday? Cryptoart. Weird, huh?

Hideo Kojima Is Writing a Book About His Creative Process

Guys and gals, until next time – may you find all the happiness that your life can fit in it’s happy spot – S.D. McKinley.

By S.D. McKinley

S.D. McKinley lives in the suburbs of Atlanta, Georgia. He was born in the first half of the 1980's and grew up in Wisconsin as a young boy, then moved to Georgia when he turned exactly twelve years old. During teenage years, he raced dirt track go karts and played guitar. He discovered his current love for all kinds of art after his mid-life crisis at 25 years old. S.D. McKinley began writing books in 2017.

Ah, that track takes me back to Manchester and a cool little club night called Tangled. Nice! And I love the isometric art. Great post S.D. 😎

Really? didn’t know you were clubbing, sir. Glad I could take you back and refresh some memories in your head – all the way in Japan! See you tomorrow.

Hey Wakizashi,
do you get notified in your little “bell” area when SD replies to you?
And would you mind replying to me down below? I am trying to get as much data so WP gets its collective head out of its fundament about this issue.

Thanks!

Here is the official reply I got from WP through email:

Thank you for the details.

I checked your account and I can confirm there is some issue with replies on that post not showing up in the Notifications panel.

We are checking more on this and will update you once we have more information to share.

Meanwhile, if you notice anything related to this or have any other queries feel free to reply to this email.

So now I’m stuck with bugging them every couple of days, as “we’ll contact you” means “we don’t know and we don’t care”.

Got a WP email this morning:

Thank you for your feedback. I’ve looked into this further, and it seems that the site owner hasn’t enabled a notifications feature on their site. This is likely why you aren’t seeing notifications from the site.

I recommend reaching out to the site owner, and recommending that they enable this option on their site.

they included a link:

Hope that helps.

Okay. Now, here’s a test without a like, which I, in fact do like. I’m glad we got it fixed. Now, let the flaming begin!!! 🎁🐰🔥🥳🥳😛😜🤪🤯🌛🌜🌜🌛🥶🤡💥🌟✨⭐💫

What?! Now I can see the comments on my blog in the notifications?! Amazing. 🤯

Thank you for helping getting it fixed even though it was a problem on my end. True community at it’s finest.

Isn’t Ludlum the guy behind the Bourne stuff? Is that book part of the Bourne series too? 😮

I didn’t know about Kojima’s book! That sounds like a nice fan collector’s item to possess. I’ll definitely look into getting my hands on a copy. The man really changed the gaming sphere with his MGS series. I can’t say much about Death Stranding besides being hyped about it with the countless teasers until the gameplay footages came out and made me wonder if it was really something I’d want to PLAY. Hahahah

It is, in fact the same guy.

I have gotten into Death Stranding a bit and I can say good things about it. I really need to finish the game, as I consider it somewhat of a masterpiece, at least so far with the atmospheric type feel that I like getting from a game.
