Pay it Forward - Week Entry 86

This is my submission for the Pay it forward Curation contest run by @thedarkhorse and @pifc.

Phew... taking a quick break from tidying up the house to write this all important part of my posting week! My wife and I have been completely run over but various time sinks (mostly involving either work or kids...)... which means that the amount of time to keep the house in spick and span condition (or at least some semblance of order...) has taken a lower priority setting!

So, quick post and feature this week... If my wife gets home and I'm here typing on the computer... I'm dead!


Since joining the #steemsilvergold community here on Steem... I've been bitten by the silver (and sometimes gold) hoarding bug! I've mostly been collecting coins, as I like the sense of history and art rounds because... well, they just look pretty!

However, sometimes... combining beauty, investment and function in a single object is something that is quite an elegant idea. In this featured #steemleo post by @elizabethbit (REP 64), we see this fusion of these three ideas into the single object. In this case, it is a very beautiful letter opener...

A very nice pick up by the author, it is really something that looks elegant, whilst fulfilling it's fuction in saving the author form paper cuts!

There is something really great about being able to play an instrument that is a complete whole by itself... I am a violinist, and often it is an ensemble instrument rather than something that is a complete musical palette by itself. It has it's advantages, in that you play with other people... but it also has it's disadvantages in that you play with other people!

Anyway, in this featured post, @amethystmidnight (REP 60) gives us a really beautiful solo guitar and singing original. The idea that you can just sit down and record something without requiring anyone else is really a great thing! I'm jealous!

This sort of live type of recording is really what music is all about.. none of this highly produced, slice and dice, no semblance to reality music here. Just the real stuff!

Hi @bengy, thank you for your presence on

This is 'your boy terry' and at this stage, i am turning to each human and steemian as it has become very pertinent to do so. I simply would like your support, presence and love in these very times as i implore you to please consider supporting my kickstarter to setup a 'Macrohard' hub in the Philippines to gather in it 'programmers/entrepreneurs'. 

I have grown very ill and i cater to my dad who is with terminal illnesses. All my resources are exhausting and being with my dad now, things are very different; regardless of my state of health, i can't stop working. 

If i continue like this however, i may deteriorate beyond repair. I have been ill like this for years already and i am already at the brink.

I need to heal and i need your help.

Lately, i was in Steemfest to discuss all my projects, including ''. I was there with my last ounce of energy. 

This was my talk:

At this stage, all my projects (,,, are set, each model of each one but it is also in these times that my battles have skyrocketed and my health has deteriorated. Among the four aforementioned platforms, which are all linked, three are in early-alpha stage of development and in use. 

To be more effective thus, i desire to setup a hub called 'Macrohard' in the Philippines, near my house, to enable me gather 'programmers/enterpreneurs' to hasten the development of each of my projects prior to SMT, allow me to have room for a health-rehabilitation, cater to my dad still and eventually establish a source of sustenance. 

With a 'Macrohard hub' set up, we can emanate 'brothers' and together help many others build their noble dreams.

I have written a fundition post explaining my intentions for the hub and i am now coming out heartfeltly to implore you to support my kickstarter, however small. 

Fundition allows you to donate using steem, other cryptocurrency or even FIAT. (My direct paypal:

The image below shows what i have gathered so far in preparation for the hub set-up: 

One major thing i got is the DJI Osmo pocket camera as media-creation will constitute a key element of the hub.

What I Can Do Currently To Give You A Hand In Return?

  • Where you have donated something, feel free to send me an email on '' containing your steem username and ask me to help your with something. I may be able to help you in return with something, just tell me what it is openly.
  • I would also like to give you some MARLIANS stake to appreciate you. (See this post). Note that MARLIANS powers the steem-tribe currently and stakeholders in MARLIANS will have a starting-stake in the 'TEARDROPS SMT', which powers ', and'.
  • When the hub is set and stable, with its own network of developers and stable core of 'now steemians', i can help you further your cause or help you in the process of building your noble dreams, even for free. In general, our base audience comprising of 'true fans' can be yours too.

Read More

I am your boy Terry, whether bulls or bears. I have explained all my projects in a 70-min read here, just incase you want to read more about the histories and stories constituting 'surpassinggoogle', to gain a detailed understand of what each my projects is about.

Or Get Some Shirts

If you don't want to donate to the kickstarter directly and you would like to buy some apparel instead, i set up a Teespring store, which i will keep filling up with more items. Where you purchase an item, the profit will go towards my kickstarter. 

See sample items in the store:

You can also vote the 'steemgigs' witness here.

Join Me In A Party.

Your Boy Terry
