Journal Journal: [Beloved] It Is Not a Word 2

It is not a word spoken,
Few words are said;
Nor even a look of the eyes
Nor a bend of the head,

But only a hush of the heart
That has too much to keep,
Only memories waking
That sleep so light a sleep.

-- Sara Teasdale

Comment So... (Score 1) 2

I did manage to log in. The mobile site does not work very well. I hope that your birthday was a good day.

Comment Pretty bad (Score 1) 3

It's pretty bad, with all the "improvements" that they've made. I still get by here every once in a while - more, lately, in fact - but there's not much to see.

I hope things are well with you.

Comment Happy Birthday! (Score 1) 1

Or in Irish: Lá breithe sona duit!

I hope that this day finds you well and happy. Best wishes for the coming year.

I do not get to Slashdot much these days, but some things are important. :-)

Journal Journal: [Beloved] A Pretty Song (redux) 2

From the complications of loving you
I think there is no end or return.
No answer, no coming out of it.

Which is the only way to love, isn't it?
This isn't a playground, this is
earth, our heaven, for a while.

Therefore I have given precedence
to all my sudden, sullen, dark moods
that hold you in the center of my world.

Comment Re:The every other Windows version sucks theory sa (Score 1) 8

You're right about 2000. But it was never positioned as a consumer OS, and that's the line of reasoning. 98 -> ME -> XP -> Vista -> 7 -> 8. It breaks down if you include 95 or 98 SE, because neither of those truly sucked.

And yes, 7 is only decent compared to Vista. Not that I've used it much; I no longer own a Windows box (and my intention is never to have another one), and at work we use Server 2008. It is possible to turn off a lot of the nasty UI stuff, at least in the server OS.
