my final Xmas present arrived; a reprint copy of "Archivum Eurasiae Medii Aevi III" (1983,2014) which contains Allsen's "Prelude to the western campaigns: Mongol military operations in the Volga- Ural region, 1217- 1237", which I have been looking for years and according to Worldcat is only held by the University of Leipzig
I keep the shades open and shut them when it gets dark, which it's doing earlier and earlier. I got distracted and left one at the far end of the room partly open. As I walk by, Koala's out there on her hind legs looking up to me! So, OK, one snack before bed. But there's a squirrel on the porch, so I stick my head back to the window, and, no, she just realized I was going for the door and met me. I just got hypnotized out of my own house by a squirrel who gets both windows and curtains?
the elided context was that he was worried that his OS would force him into no longer being backwards-compatible to 32-bit whatever and he'd lose his media player that wasn't being updated any more that he kept around specifically for FLACs that he couldn't use iTunes for. So he knew that much about computer music programs, but had never heard of Winamp. I'm still poleaxed.
oh, so this morning I was racing the finance website and a mandatory reboot that ignores my timing settings and a bored professor (he finally let his Mac autoupdate and it was claiming it would take 45 minutes to reboot; (he'd had some update process open for weeks?) Anyway somehow in the course of the ensuing conversation (which is also ridiculous but this margin is too short to contain it) it transpired that he needed FLAC-capable music apps but had *never heard of Winamp*. Strange morning.
Online I mostly post pictures of squirrels very far away from what I understand you call the "Twin Cities"
A community centered on the Twin Cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul, Minnesota, and their surrounding region.
An alternative to social networks that connected people in the region that have either died away or driven people off with unethical or anti-social policies.
