Very molpish, and just in Time for the 50th yipsiversary (anniversiyip?) of the album, and the 40th yipsary of the film. That's not lONG time to Wait at all.

I've been very busy wrapping up the semester, still a bit to do.

Molplier yet, send me a wheelephant to help me remember things.

1. Numberphile (or more specifically, the SSAARCASFPAA) is making a calculator "unboxing" series which I like very much.
https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLt5AfwLFPxWKAINNfxIdYmFVKuk_F_cQq
2. The STAF has a calculator functionality
https://youtu.be/7ci6b-xgpoQ
3. There was a possibility of sending calculators to them.
4. So I did it. I thought they could like the non-standard calculator mode, which can work with a limited interface - 4 digits and 3 buttons.
5. After some monthe it appeared on video.
https://youtu.be/WN58941sgtI (3:33)
But they were stopped by the incompatible power plug which was ... redundant because the STAF also has batteries.

Some time ago there was a voting in Poland.
Some people started an action "bring your own pen to the voting". (apparently, they were afraid that someone could replace the pens available there with pens which have ink that disappears after some time making their votes invalid)
As a reply some other people started an alternative action: "bring your own bear to the voting"

That's an amusing channel, it's unfortunate they were in too much of a hurry to figure it out.
(I did not pay attention to when you said it would appear, but when the package told that it was a box I knew that was yours.) ETA:And in case anyone missed it, the device is shown again at the very end of the video.

Actually, knowing BFTF could make you expect some things from BSTA which will be not there.
Despite the similarity, BFTF and BSTA are not the same story, not the same timeline, not the same world.
Perhaps after bsta finishes then, I really do not need more things to spend Tim on.

Of course, my title referenced something which I couldn't help but to OTTify, even at the cost of getting something mildly important done.
This is not necessarily supposed to make sense.

Hi edo! How's it going?

If I always did the most obvious and logical actions,
you would never see most of the things I posted here.

Also, what do you think is the most obvious and logical action now?
To me, the logical action is to walk there and have a look around. b is so close!

"Bad news" might be the wrong term. Cyrano de Bergerac wouldn't have been much of a play if Cyrano just got some counselling and became less hungup on his nose, but still, every miscommunication and terrible choice is worth a wince, not a celebration, even though it makes my favourite play of all time possible.

I was just trying to express a groan reflecting my impression that my curiosity about this place that I've been wondering about FOR OVER TWO MIPS that I thought was to just about to be satisfied in a mere 60 or 120np is now probably going to pushed back wips, mips or yips. As the author, you can enjoy my groan. Arguably, I'm enjoying my groan, but that doesn't make it any less of a groan. That noise you made in the last attachment? That was the sound my soul made when I read that upcoming frame title.

Since you're stuck here anyway, you can as well report your progress to your friend.

But really, this is fun too. Talks with TLF are delightful. I guess I'll survive. ;)

IF A R.A.Z.O.R. WERE VERY HILLISH BUT SUPERVARBAL, COULD YOU REALLY CHEW BEESNAKES AT IT LIKE AFRO_S?

Thanks for all your molpily-well-wishes. Finals Week is over, and they did indeed ask the questions that I had studied for Image I actually was able to finish and turn in my exam almost a shortpix before the end of allotted time.

Hey molpies, guess what? Individual posts' subject lines no longer get shown on the IXCT index page. So I'm editing this to remove the "1190: Time:" bit from the beginning of the subject line.

Edit2: For decree: Good luck @mrob27! - Timborme and the bots (Who are Time-travelling, so this totally makes sense.)

It still does on the main index page, though.

I have been in the basement. However, although I take pride in being a rational sceptic, today I got a divine reminder to pop in and say hello. You see, I was googling a local folk music event, and I was reminded that I stole borrowed my avatar image from the logotype of the organizers. Also, two of the dance teachers had the family name Utter, which of course is Swedish for Otter. Now if that isn't a divine sign from the great Lord Randall, I don't know what would be. Proof: http://goteborg.folkdansringen.se/index.php/om-oss/vara-arrangemang/slottsskogsstamman

So: hello!

I just read the current newpage, but that was obviously too little for context. I may try more some time.

Anyway, I have just come home from the folk music thing, after two hours of informal singing. Some people were teaching simple songs. Jolly nice. I don't think I have the energy to go back and dance later. Feeling lazy.

On another topic: some of you may remember that I have recently had my second close encounter with the law. The first time was a few years ago, when I had a supporting wall in my garden rebuilt, but it turned out I didn't know that I should have asked for formal permission first. Well, lmjb sent me a file in a cake and I finally got a retroactive permission. No harm done. This time, I was sued by the horrible carpenter from Hell. I had withheld 20 bags of money for a number of reasons. He said, well, those are flaws, but I am prepared to correct them. I said, forget it, buddy. He said, the law says I must be given a chance to correct any mistakes. I said, oh yeah? He said, all right, let's compromise: just give me 10 bags of money in compensation. And I said ... well, it's a long story. He finally did sue me, and we met two weeks ago at a preparatory hearing in court. The judge was a girl half my age. I am still confused that professional people can be half my age: I am sure that never used to happen back in the 1980s. However, some googling afterwards revealed that she graduated from law school only two years ago. So, on the plus side: I am not that old, apparently. On the minus side, my case was not important enough to require an experienced judge. But she was nice and professional enough, I suppose.

Anyway, we finally agreed on a settlement where I will pay the horrible carpenter only 2 bags of money. I think I never had a realistic chance to get any money back from him. So, I could say that I slayed the troll with an 80 % success rate. Or I could say that although justice was not done, there was less injustice done than might have been the case. So that surely calls for a half-hearted celebration. Hooray.

I think the carpenter was a typical con man, but I can't really say I have encountered anyone like him before. My impression now is that everything about him is fake. He can be very charming and friendly when he wants to, but that's fake. And he can be vengeful and furious when he thinks that will give him some advantage, but that's also fake. Someone said he is psychopath, but not in the horror movie sense (I hope!) but in the sense of a very manipulating personality. It was well worth two bags of money to finish my dealings with him.

To end on a more positive note: The law can't break me. I am still at large. Yee-ha!

I would really like to make bsta faster but it's not achievable.
The wait has just been increased but don't worry, it will be worth it (I hope).

Waiting for it is what we do. If bsta is faster, there is less waiting for it. We are waiting for Time Two too to make a comparison. Waiting is good for the soul. It fills us with anticipation, without which waiting devolves to snoozing. You are RUNning it at the perfect speed, fulfilling the second commandment as we fulfill the first.
