Not yet, that has to wait till December. Name day.

2:26 AM, guests leaved, good that I don't have to drive home Don't expect me early on-line tomorrow
I had a guest yesterday: my younger brother. I told him to bring beer. Whilst teaching him the origin of "E=mc2", he somehow lost half his beer.

You're most welcome, although I'm surprised that it's not standard procedure..

Meanwhile, why did this not happen in my back yard? (courtesy Nilequeen)
I found his golden nectar just moments ago, in my backyard.

I may be a bit sillier in chat this morning, if that's possible. (hic!)

Wondering why wikipedia doesn't know that the Carnival season starts today. The eleventh of the eleventh, fools squared day.

At eleven past eleven pm the new unelected prince Carnival is introduced. Beer producers cherish this day.

I like listening to music on Pandora. But after a few hours, they stop playing music, and they ask: "Are you still listening?" There is no answer option that says, "Well no of course I'm not, because you stopped playing music, you silly people!"

Tomorrow will be a dark day for astronomy. There will be a total eclipse of the sun visible from Australia. Nuclear processes on the sun, which normally casts a shadow on the earth's surface, will temporarily cease and except for the path of totality will only reflect light from the earth that sneaks around the moon. As always, don't look directly at the sun unless you are a Republican. They don't believe in eclipses or rape.

In a lapcorp lobby with spotty wi-fi, here for a 5 hour glucose tolerance test. Basically if I don't eat and have sugar I feel like crap, which is what this test consists of. For five hours. And getting blood drawn 7 times. oh fun.

I used to view eclipses by projecting their image through a pin hole onto some surface. First you have to punch a small hole in a piece of paper using some very tiny object, say a Republican's head. And like most things that go through a Republican's head, the image will come out reversed and upside down.

Man, i am a mess. Caffeine withdraw, combined with fasting, combined with having sugar on an empty stomach and 7 pin pricks. Found (online) that there was a good coffee shop nearby. Tried to find the coffee shop. Couldn't. Tried to go home. Couldn't find the exit to the highway. Back and forth several times. Finally got there. Then mixed the exit home and ended up in 20 miles too far north.

Decided that *any* coffee would do at this point so I stopped at Dunkin' Donuts. But I found out they have actual espresso now. So that was good. Then tried to go home. Got off at the right to get home, but went in the wrong direction for several miles. Had to turn around again. Finally home.

I'm going to watch a Disney movie and space out.

You heard me right. I said Disney. Not a huge fan. But somebody gave me an .avi of Tangled and it seems like the perfect remedy to my state.

Okay, I'm now firmly convinced that my home computer really hates PF Chat for some reason. Once again, my whole system crashed, only after about 15 minutes of chat this time. (I think I've ruled out Sunday electrical issue candidates [e.g. laundry dryer, etc.])

Does PF Chat rely on Adobe Flash? I've found a strong correlation: after I finally nurse the system back to life, the first thing that usually comes up is a window announcing that a new version of Adobe Flash is available.

Experimental procedure for next time is to manually install the latest Adobe Flash immediately before attempting any PF Chat at all. I'll see if that makes a difference.

Yes, chat is flash based.

On Sundays only. Watch the feedback forum.

I had same flash problem with my last computer. I googled to see any solution and found I wasn't alone!

My computer would go snail speed whenever I played any youtube video.
