AFTER PUBLISHING THIS POST .. AND THINKING ABOUT IT .. I CAME BACK TO IT AND ADDED THE FOLLOWING THOUGHTS ..

There is a lot more to this post than meets-the-eye. I sat down here to put up a post about my airline flight from Hong Kong to Ulaanbaatar Mongolia. That was ‘MY’ plan. Just a simple straight-forward easy-does-it post.

IF .. the big IF .. You are even vaguely-in-tune with the ‘spiritual quest of life’ you realize that ..

“God laughs at our plans.” .. “God’s will for us is for us to do .. with discernment .. what is in front of us to do.”

“Captain you are losing it! Calling this post God’s will! Give me a break Captain!” /SIGN ME/ .. DOUBTING THOMAS ..

“Doubting Thomas factually I haven’t a clue-in-a-carload about God and God’s will. I just KNOW that ‘something’ I don’t understand and cannot fathom prompted me to ‘just follow along and go where I was going with this post’.”

“Doubting Thomas .. You believe or you don’t believe. It is black or white. There is no middle ground here. I ask you this:  Would you rather believe and be wrong or not believe and be wrong?”

Then there is the mental illness aspect lurking in the background. There will be .. Trust Me On This .. Someone reading along here thinking ..

“Goodness. IF Cap can keep it together with his mind going in overdrive .. Maybe .. Just Maybe .. I can keep myself together too.”

“So Doubting Thomas .. Maybe .. Just maybe .. By me having the courage to allow ‘me-to-be-me’ I will give someone the courage to be themselves. Maybe then I will be helping someone else.”

“Maybe me talking about God and God’s will in my life will empower someone else to have the courage and the guts to do so themselves.”

“THAT .. To help a fellow traveler on this journey-of-life .. Is what this is all about Doubting Thomas.”

So THANK YOU AGAIN ERIN 12463 for your inspiration to me to put this post together. YOU ERIN WILL KNOW EXACTLY WHAT I MEAN. WHEN MY E-MAIL TO YOU GOT BOUNCED I SWORE AT .. MAILER DAEMON .. And look what happened here.

I just had an e-mail BOUNCE BACK TO ME ..

Message body

In multitasking computer operating systems, a daemon (/ˈdmən/ or /ˈdmən/)[1] is a computer program that runs as a background process, rather than being under the direct control of an interactive user. Traditionally, the process names of a daemon end with the letter d, for clarification that the process is, in fact, a daemon, and for differentiation between a daemon and a normal computer program.. For example, syslogd is the daemon that implements the system logging facility, and sshd is a daemon that services incoming SSH connections.

In a Unix environment, the parent process of a daemon is often, but not always, the init process. A daemon is usually either created by a process forking a child process and then immediately exiting, thus causing init to adopt the child process, or by the init process directly launching the daemon. In addition, a daemon launched by forking and exiting typically must perform other operations, such as dissociating the process from any controlling terminal (tty). Such procedures are often implemented in various convenience routines such as daemon(3) in Unix.

Systems often start daemons at boot time and serve the function of responding to network requests, hardware activity, or other programs by performing some task. Daemons can also configure hardware (like udevd on some Linux systems), run scheduled tasks (like cron), and perform a variety of other tasks.

Get the below information ..

The term was coined by the programmers of MIT’s Project MAC. They took the name from Maxwell’s demon, an imaginary being from a thought experiment that constantly works in the background, sorting molecules.[2] Unix systems inherited this terminology. Maxwell’s Demon is consistent with Greek mythology’s interpretation of a daemon as a supernatural being working in the background, with no particular bias towards good or evil. However, BSD and some of its derivatives have adopted a Christian demon as their mascot rather than a Greek daemon.[citation needed]

The word daemon is an alternative spelling of demon,[3] and is pronounced /ˈdmən/ dee-mən. In the context of computer software, the original pronunciation /ˈdmən/ has drifted to/ˈdmən/ day-mən for some speakers.[1]

Alternate terms for daemon are service (Microsoft Windows NT), started task (IBM z/OS),[4] and ghost job (XDS UTS).

I just know my webmaster Andrej  is so proud of me for researching this! By-The-By Andrej .. You will never know how much I am using the code <p></p> to get paragraphing the way I want it NOT the way the computer is trying to get it.

“Captain!  We just may allow you to enter into the doorway of the ‘ Computer Geek ‘ community IF you keep this up!”

Isn’t it just something .. In a few minutes of time several years ago .. In his home .. Chad a friend of mine gave me a most valuable lesson that I carry with me daily.

CHAD IN 45039 .. WHAT A GIFT YOU GAVE ME WHEN YOU SO PAINSTAKINGLY .. TAUGHT ME HOW TO DO ‘COPY AND PASTE’ .. THANK YOU SO MUCH CHAD!

A note to Patti from the followers of babakaps.net .. You need to get back to Asia to get your Captain calmed down. Him being all alone with his mind and a computer in the room with him is not a good thing we all surmise.

“Captain. The time has come the Walrus said to press publish and have Patti meticulously proof read all of the above.”

“The time has come,” the Walrus said,
“To talk of many things:
Of shoes–and ships–and sealing-wax–
Of cabbages–and kings–
And why the sea is boiling hot–
And whether pigs have wings.”

IF THE ONLY PRAYER YOU EVER SAY IN YOUR ENTIRE LIFE IS THANK YOU .. IT WILL BE ENOUGH.  MEISTER ECKHART ..

To you Oh God of Abraham I say ..

“Thank You for my life .. IF one post here on my website just one time helps someone to escape from their own mental challenges then I am so joyous ..”

/s/ .. Your Little Captain ..

    Here’s a simpler definition: Software in a mail server that delivers messages to recipients. When you get a MAILER-DAEMON@whatevercompany.com message in your inbox, the server at that company is informing you that it is returning your message because of some failure. The “to” e-mail address may no longer be valid, or there may be a problem routing the message to the appropriate mail server. Your domain name may be on a blacklist, and the server is refusing all incoming messages from it. See blacklist.

    CAP! Go outside. Talk a walk. Call Yusuf and take a trip somewhere. Broaden your horizons. Making a whole (indecipherable) post about an email bouncing??? The streets of your mind are definitely on a walkabout today! ;)
