    Re: Post Race!

    I have only known one Fritz in my life, and his last name didn't seem at all Germanic. Kind of English, really, but that doesn't mean much in the US. So many immigrants anglicized their names when they arrived here. A friend of mine found out that his Italian surname got shortened, and he restored it.

    Didn't know him personally but I remember Fritz The Cat. That was a long time ago.

    You never know a cat personally. It's always impersonal, at best.

    That's not actually true, but cats do want you to believe that.

    I've never met a Fritz, but had plenty of tech go on the fritz.

    Luckly for me my Fritz!Box has never gave me any problems.

    I feel bad for that bloodied horse. He must've been the one that ran into a bus after getting spooked.

    Re: Post Race!

    This keeeeyboard is a mess. The worst key is the e key, but others are repeeating, as well, though none as bad as the e. I think it might be due to it being a gaming keyboard with very twitchy keys. Either that or it's duee to me typing like I was using a hammeer.

    Switched the settings. Now I'll see whether or not it is better. Thus far, it does appear to be. The repeats seem to be due more to my spelling, but not entirely. I have gotten an extra e three times so far, though I corrected them.

    Now for yet another test, but I need to type something that ends in an ee. Hmmm, that key is still being problematic. It's better, just not quite fixed.

    Re: Post Race!

    Well, it's the keyboard itself. Even turning the repeats down so far that backspace barely works, the e gets repeated far too often. It's only the e, now, so that's an improvement, but a new keyboard will be forthcoming.

    I'm thinking that the keyboard just needs a good cleaning. Removing the e key and cleaning that out appears to have gotten it working better. Not perfectly, but far better than it was.

    What I'm curious about is what happened to Dilettante. He's gone mighty silent.

    The last time I cleaned my keyboard, I broke the '0' key from its numeric keypad, which I never use. I thought about buying a new keyboard, but I love the way this one feels.

    My guess is his new companion requires his full attention. From what he said she seemed pretty high maintenance.

    A new video generating AI called Sora is amazing and scary at the same time!



    Sora videos have a lot of flaws, mostly with limbs, cell division like behavior of animals, but OpenAI will probably iron out most of the bugs while they work out safeguards to prevent misuse before making it available to the public.

    I can't wait to get my hands on this! I just hope OpenAI doesn't charge an arm and a leg for access.

    Here we are in the last day of April, and we may have gotten a frost last night. It's hard to know when to plant certain things around here. I'm trying to be strategic with planting, though, and thus far my strategy is working. The strategy is to not have any crop mature while I am off hiking and can't harvest it.

    You might want to add an additional week or two to your equation. Good chance you'll be recovering from an injury.

    We have a chance of snow to the valley floors, early next week, so waiting a bit seems like a good plan.

    Things settled down for a change then WHAM a breakup. Five days later the crawling back began and things seem on track to normal... if you can call any of this normal. I can't account for how this has continued so long in light of the chaos shot through it and the number of people telling me I should run.

    Glad to hear from you. At our age running is probably not a good idea. lol

    Yeah, limping is more our style.

    Still, it's good to hear, really. Your silence was becoming ominous. It could have been that you were delirious, but even that could be either good or bad.
