Happy Diwali! +++ The Butterfly Dragon III: The Two Dragons Act III +++ [Updated 30/9/2022: 6:00 PM EST]

Introduction This story which is the third book (or Act as I'm calling it) is the conclusion of the Butterfly Dragon trilogy. This book will wrap up all the loose ends created during the course of the adventures of Heylyn, Alicia, Monique and Valerie over the three books and several short stories involving the characters. It will also bring back a number of characters from the previous two books to assist in overcoming the forces with which they're about to clash. Hidden forces whose presence I've been building up over the course of the first two Acts of the Dragon Butterfly story. As is the case with my previous Butterfly Dragon books, science will play a big part, especially in this book with the return of some of fan favourite characters, though the challenges they're about to face might be too much even for the legendary Butterfly Dragon herself. I hope that you enjoy what's in store. Bare with me as this story is written (mostly) live, with edits coming after I

New Release Of Network Connection Scheduler...

Network Connection Scheduler originally started out as a utility I was developing for Windows that would disable selected Network Connections according to a schedule.

After a lot of work with the project, I decided to streamline the program to focus on making its core functionality much different from what was originally released here on Shhhh! Digital Media, yet so much more useful and powerful as a security measures tool for any Windows system.

The program has been renamed NIC Nix which was the original name, the acronym standing for Network Interface Card *Nix* and believe me, it operates exactly as named though not so drastically as it might sound.

The program merely disables selected Network Connections (your choice which ones) based upon how long your system has been idle ie no mouse or keyboard input, between 120 and 60000 seconds.

The interface itself is pretty much self explanatory, its really very simple. On the About box, you'll find the means to have the program run with every Windows startup as pictured below:

So, you can now download this new version here on this post, or on the software page here on Shhhh! Digital Media. This version has been thoroughly tested, though if you should run into any trouble please feel free to drop me a line at for bug reports, feedback or suggestions.

Books And Chapter Updates...

I'll be posting the latest update to A Lady's Prerogative II: Wounded Aerth tonight some time (if I can get through the edits after a long coding session). Also I'm aiming at the end of the month for the the Epilogue to The Butterfly Dragon II: What Different Eyes See.

After the Epilogue is published, I'll be hard at work on The Butterfly Dragon III and posting weekly updates, each including multiple chapters. I'll alternate between chapters for BFD and A Lady's Prerogative III, after the final bit of Wounded Aerth is posted. Between all of that, I'll be working on art work for the books as well which I'll add to the posted chapters over time.

Beyond that, I'm also working on other projects, some related to A Lady's Prerogative and some their own thing. One of these projects might bring the stories to life in a more accessible medium, though that effort is limited by my time and finances.

I'm enjoying a great night of music (Spotify), food and drink, listening to a variety of classic alternative, electronic and ambient music and I hope that you're out there enjoying your night too.

Again, thank you to the SQTI and Shi Fu Dao Shi for last night's meditation class, which has proven very helpful thus far.

Have a great night!
