Despite the first idea posted for this blog being bad interfaces, I only just now got to add a search function to it! It is in the header at the end of the page list and only shows up there. I suggest looking for something for the fun of it.
I am thinking of a word, universally admitted to be English, that has the letters S and H together, but which is never pronounced as if it contains the [ʃ] phoneme.
I just noticed, the favicon that Outlook.com uses when you are logged in is now some flatter colorful thing. I do not know if that is good or bad. Watch that space?
I have not abandoned the blogging, but have been very busy with the volunteering and work. What a change from the bad old times at the previous agencia. This one is enjoyable and entertaining (often) and ultimately useful to me because I can be useful to it in its purpose.
I do have ideas and pictures and things, I just need the time and memory to put them here.
I decided to go back to the old photographs of older library matter from “college days”. Here is something I found entertaining from the July 19, 1919 Literary Digest.
Markdown isn’t functioning for me, so some footnotes are lost.
So Lois posted something involving moss, so I had to post this and get it out of my web Browser.
Along with the infamous at the time pranque, 6 years before a different scandal happened at the Indiana College. This time it was the students who were on the right side of the line, in my opinion.
I have been using the best YouTube video I know of for sound testing when I plug in my speaker-monitors: cz3DEStqO-U – entituled, “Dale annoying Squirrely the broody hen“. I do not know the breeds, but the white broody “Squirrely” has the most interesting complaint voice.
I had a broody hen, I don’t remember her breed, who would make this sound that had a glottal stop in it. I think that is what you would call it. Anyway, this hen’s vocalization is very worthy of record.
Bonus: listen closely during the intermission when “Dale” stares at the lens. You can hear someone in the distance: “What are you doing in there?”

After some very minor celebrity on the former corners of the Internet, the TURDS!! file is updated with a transcription of a letter from the “Pinkerton’s National Detective Agency”. They were hired to, it seems, find out who wrote it. Details below, but scanning and posting came from this officiel blog. By the Way: if you care to scan those other “terrific examples” of these kinds of things, I would appreciate it.
I have far too many things on my Desktop and also open in windows to post about. Instead, I slept poorly for half the day, and then spent the rest of the time cleaning up my seriously dangerous method of storing passwords in, essentially, plain text. At least it was not in “the cloud”. I have worked to overwrite the old file so it should be unrecoverable.
Also, I went around closing/deleting accounts for sites I have no use for anymore. Amazon makes it incredibly annoying and deceptive to delete them, and then people like that wonder why laws and regulations appear to micromanage them. Fine job there, Jeffrey [sic].
I have also backt up my Email accounts and even fixed the contact information on some old dude’s accounts that I watch over for trouble. That and started on my tax filings. YaY for proactivity!
