So, at long last I ran a new outdoor cable for my telephone service.
I have had, for some time, an “Irulu W10” tablet. After “refreshing” Windows 10 on it, then reinstalling Firefox, then generating a new profile for Firefox, then reinstalling Firefox, I now want to do a completely fresh reinstall of Windows 10. This is more of a trip than the MSI WindPad I had been using previously.
My immediate boss/supervisor lives on some nasty town road that is ill maintained (he says, I’ve never been there) and has even worse utility service. He can’t get anything but dialup or satellite and even the infamously reliable Bell System copper wire doesn’t last long in a power failure because the booster in the box halfway into town doesn’t have a long lasting battery.
SO! After well over the original time of 1 year (52 weeks per the form), I got permanency in my title. Essentially I have proved that I am worth keeping. This is similar in effect to “tenure”, but is more a protection from improper politiqual influence than protection of uneasy research ideas.
In a few months, I can start the process for obtaining my professional license, which – when done – entituls me to the next title in the ladder. This will restart the process of 52 weeks of uncertainty.
Not often does a State one-up the feds and the rest of the 50+5, but Pennsylvania did that many years ago and on to the present.
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?
