Thinking aloud about this case

So a case I added yesterday, Niija Council, is a “few details” case, but I had plenty of photos, including pics of her tattoos, from Niija’s Facebook page. (She also put a photo of herself on a page called Team Bisexual. Maybe I could profile Niija for Pride Month in June.)

The thing is, Niija has posts on her Facebook from AFTER her official date of disappearance, September 1.

I don’t know whether September 1 was the date she was last physically seen by anyone, or if they just mean she was last seen sometime in September, or what. On September 11 she made four posts:


Later in the month she changed her profile picture multiple times, the last time on September 23. The comments on her September 16 profile picture change indicate people were pretty worried about her:


So I dunno what was going on there. It’s a struggle to piece what exactly happened from what I’ve got to work with. I hope Niija is alive and well somewhere.

Incidentally, I wish I could read the words tattooed on her neck and chest. I posted pictures of them on her casefile but I can’t tell what they say. Here’s larger photos below (the neck picture is from before she added the stars and squiggles) if you want to help me out:




Ooh, this is a problem

So I just added the case of Charles Edward Tear, missing from Fargo, North Dakota, to Charley. And there’s an issue. Namely this:

Tear’s NamUs profile gives the date of disappearance as June 29, 2011. But this article has it as June 29, 2001.

One or the other of them is clearly wrong, but I’m damned if I know which. The difference is simply the slip of a finger, a typo. Oh, and ten full years.

I’m going with what NamUs says for now, but I wish I was more certain that was accurate. NamUs isn’t always correct. (Case in point: Tejin Thomas is still listed as a girl¬†on there.)

Picture dump

Yeah, so I’ve added a bunch of photos to casefiles. They all come from the same source. I’m happy to get a few pictures, especially of the women, where the MP is not looking their best.

I’m planning to add more, but this website keeps cutting me off for using it too much. Shrug.

All better!

They had said to expect a two- to three-day wait on Orville’s repair as they were backed up, but Jamie sneaked it in this morning. And your donations, from as far away as Argentina, covered the repair! Thank you so much!

He’s home and set up again and working fine.

Orville is in the computer hospital

I have taken Orville off to the computer hospital. It may be a few days before he can get repaired cause they’re super busy now. The power supply is shot and needs replaced. That’s a less expensive issue than the motherboard, at least.

I’m writing this on my cell phone. I’ll just have to read or something for two or three days. I’ll survive. Get well soon, Orville!

So the computer is broken

So we had a power outage and now Orville won’t boot up again. I called up the computer hospital where Computer Guru Jamie works. He’s not there right now. Will be back in half an hour.

The lady told me this was not a problem they could fix over the phone and I’d have to bring him in. At 3:30 I will call again and see if I can convince Jamie to come here instead. He’s Michael’s friend and comes over often anyway.

I have a feeling this is going to be an expensive repair. As this falls under the purview of Charley Project expenses — I don’t use the computer for much else — any donations would be appreciated.
