Day knocked a bit sideways.

Email is down badly enough I cannot even be recognized by the service, no matter what connection method I attempt!


I will eat a bowl of chicken soup on your behalf.

Get well.


That's been my impression.

I particularly like the Krunner command interface launched with Alt+Space or Alt+F2.

Note that this DRAIN assembly does not have a gas trap and may not meet building code requirements in your jurisdiction.



Having the shape or form of a helix; spiral.


A spiral will typically diminish in arc size while a helix generally maintains a consistent diameter. Made of metal, both are considered to be springs.


I sing your praises!

I wish you a successful run as an instance admin. Be sure to moderate kindly and also moderate your own effort to keep the experience positive.

Be sure to get enough rest!


Are you aware of any other molecules which exhibit the property of expanding during the freeze process?


Good point.

Thank goodness for the physics of the water molecule, though.

By expanding during the freeze process, ice floats on water. Without that quirky physics, we'd be sitting on a ball of ice with maybe a melted sheen of water on top.

Bob made his campfire too big and his marshmallow stick too short.

He SCORCHED not only the marshmallows but his sleeve as well.



Thanks for making the link.
Interesting sound on that album.

I would guess your next step would be to gather some ambient recordings of your own to back the improvised ballads.

Maybe a two mic setup, one close for doing voice and the other remote to get the background sound. Mixing, please, not like Fox Sports, though with "crowd" noise overtaking the voices.

Good luck with your work.
Be safe.


Thank you for connecting.

I heck much more than I hack.

Complaining is so much easier than actually trying to solve the problem.

Keep up the good work and decide if I should be able to follow you back...your choice.

My foolishness is public by design.

Have fun.
Be safe.
