The deer feel that this is an adequate exchange for the apples. I agree. I loved finding wild animal droppings in the yard as a kid. It made it a more real and important sort of place, that deer and rabbits were there sometimes when we couldn't see them. (I didn't like finding their bones, though.)

I'm trying to set my persnickety old Toshiba up as sort of a household media server, but I needed to fix a problem with its Mint install, which required me to burn a fresh liveCD, which I decided I didn't want to do on the Asus to which I'd originally downloaded the ISO, because the burner's not very reliable, so I went and got the HP, which is one of the office computers and should not really be in our house.
Between the Asus and the HP are a Kindle, a tablet, and my Nintendo DS.
Also, I took the photo with a smartphone, and I think that cat might be a robot.
I just noticed that Dad's laptop is just over on the table. I should have worked it into the shot, too; its feelings must be hurt.
It's generally warmer in Kentucky than in Canada, sure, but I think that if you're flying south for the winter, you want to get a little more ambitious than this.
Some smaller birds were out exploring our porch this morning, I guess because Dad spilled some birdseed.
I want to go out in the snow, but I’m afraid to. I’m afraid because there’s a small swimming pool out in the yard somewhere… and I can’t tell exactly where.
Someone stop me from playing EVE Online and watching Soul Eater all day. I think it likely that neither one is a good idea on its own, but they’re particularly unharmonious in combination. I’m going to name a spaceship something like “SYMMETRY!,” and then someone named NeMeSiN will destroy it and send me a misogynistic message explaining why they did so. And I’ll want to apologize to Death the Kid for letting the symmetry get destroyed again.
Death the Kid is my favorite character. His voice was giving me weird signals, so I looked it up, and he’s Tamaki from Ouran. Things somehow make more sense now that I know that. I just looked up Black ★ Star, and he’s Excel, which is obviously also good.
Its image management. The metadata for JPEGs includes tags. I can tag my photos offline! And Windows Photo Gallery Live allows you to upload to Flickr, and actually works right! (Flickr Uploadr doesn’t seem to work with Vista - I’ve been using jUploadr instead. The problem is probably Microsoft’s fault, but it’s nice that they’ve set up a work-around.)
Also, there’s a feature that allows you to offset the timestamps of a batch of images to correct for inaccurate timestamps. This is A Good Thing - I get this problem a lot due to my habit of switching time zones. (Japan is thirteen hours ahead of Kentucky. I live in the future. Thirteen hours in the future.)
However, as with all things Vista, there are caveats. Cut for caveats. (They’re long.)( Read the rest of this entry » )
You can hear That Show With Undertakers in the background, and the video goes on about twenty seconds after the dog stops grooming, because I've tried three video editors and still not convinced any of them to both cut and save the file properly.
( Illustrative photo is behind the cut. )
"To the individual who, sometime Thursday morning, took my soup out of the fridge, spilled some on the floor, put it back without covering it properly, and left without cleaning up his spill, thus causing me to stumble barefoot into yellow liquid at 9:00 AM while nauseous:
When I find out who you are, you will suffer torments new to experience of man.
For a lesser food-crime than this, in Kentucky a man lies in a shallow grave, the fondou he did offend against smeared across his sightless eyes, his mouth still agape in an expression of faint shock. This fate and worse await you. Settle your affairs and compose your mind and spirit.
Have a nice day,
I think my handwriting sort of lends an air of legitimacy to death threats.
