I’m in prison. That means NO internet access. Right now I’m sitting in my cell with a BIC pen and a pad of paper. I write in cursive.
When I’m done writing, I send it out through the Post Office.
I send it to my wife, Suzie. It takes about 3-4 days to reach her. She then types my blogs and clicks “publish”. This method is so old school that I’m probably the only person in the world who blogs this way.
The process is a little slow since we are using the US Postal Service. We thank you for your understanding and patience.
But very soon this old school writing style will be a thing in the past for me. Modern technology is finally catching up to all the inmates in prison.
There’s this thing called JPay. It’s a big stainless steel computer that’s bolted to the dayroom wall. I get 3 logins per day. And each login is only 15 minutes. JPay allows me to email friends and family. I buy 60 estamps for $10. One email costs one estamp. It’s cheaper and faster than sending snail mail.
Why don’t I blog using JPay? Because I simply don’t have enough time. Fifteen minutes goes by super fast.
But all that is about to change with the JP4.
The JP4 costs about $49.99 and will be available for purchase very soon.
It will allow me to relax and not worry about my time limit while I write emails & blogs. The JP4 is a 5 inch handheld touch screen. It’s mine. I keep it in my cell and I can use it as often as I want. It offers all the same features as JPay, which include: receiving pics, videos, emails, and downloading music. Songs cost anywhere from $.99 to $1.99 per song. The JP4 will also allow inmates to buy & watch movies. A USB cord is compatible with the TV inside our cells. The TV’s are 14 inch flat screens. So instead of watching a movie on a 5 inch screen, I can hook it up to my 14 inch TV. Not bad for being in prison!
So right now I blog using a pen & paper. In a month or two I’ll be able to blog using my JP4. I’ll email it to my wife, then she will “cut & paste” it to my blog.
Any Q’s? Feel free to ask. View me as your direct connection to the inside.
Have a nice day & enjoy your freedom.
