    Thankfully, no. But now the two cats are having a staring contest and I'm not sure how to separate them without getting scratched.

    Rant: I want to get a pair of gloves to keep my hand from getting too cold when walking outside with my cane, but my mother's making a huge fuss about the cost. She keeps saying there's gloves somewhere in the house but I can't find any.

    Put a piece of cardboard between them to divert their attention from each other. If they get upset with you, use the cardboard for a shield.

    If anyone in the neighborhood has a honeysuckle tree, ask if you can have a couple of small branches or twigs. It makes cats really mellow.

    Gloves are available at any Dollarama or other type of dollar store. I have a light pair for merely chilly days and a heavier pair for cold days. For really cold days I wear both pairs at once.

    Total cost (not sure how much HST you have to pay in your province) should be approximately $7 or so.

    New rant: Purolator thinks slapping a "we missed you" card on my mailbox constitutes an honest attempt at delivery.

    They were obviously able to get into the building, so why didn't they just knock on my door? I was home at the time.

    Purolator is currently refusing to deliver a package to me because one side of the road is closed and my house "is not reachable". UPS, Amazon, and Canada Post seem to get here just fine (I wish Amazon would just handle its own delivering at this point, they're so much better than the Big Three). Especially since, y'know, there's two sides to the road. Just go around.

    Too tough for them, I guess.

    Rant: Needlessly large FLAC files. Some people might be able to tell the difference between 320kbps MP3 and a lossless FLAC (I definitely can in a double-blind test), but for listening purposes there's not really any reason to go above 44100 Hz. If you're using 96,000 Hz you're really just wasting drive space.

    Guess I'm getting old :/.

    It could be misinterpreted as a Raves title.

    Why would you be yelling "argh! augh!" if something good was happening? Unless you're into BDSM, I suppose.

    If you're truly getting old you would have learned better and weaseled your way into helping without using your back.
    But that's easier to say when I haven't moved in close to 30 years so haven't needed any help recently. ;)

    wait , ı allowed a rant thread end without posting just once ?

    so , people apparently want to tell me that they have forgiven me . A very and very short reminder of what . Am an idiot , get picked on somehow , friends do find me , like "We are your friends" and lend an hand . Was not easy , but ı think it was 2008ish . Not the dazzler lazer on HMS Coventry , which ı read in a secondhand trade magazine , but the one on the B-52 . America agreed on "Leave r16 alone" and Congregation stops direct observation of me and piggy backs on the locals' . ı hoard pointless bytes , my desktop is just 40 GBs and run out of space . Try this formerly famous Rapidshare . Load a rar or what , download it every 15 days and pronto , you have free Cloud , like before it was invented or something . Right ... Now that within 15 seconds of me loading it online , it gets called and Rapidshare bans it . People have been wetting themselves as they have been watching everything ı do online .

    then the 10.000 £ for a night , the rentable British Page 3 Girl . Invented by Congregation as a reminder to get me , while they were trying to brace themselves up to fulfil the American demands to get my "Friends" . Locals , not exactly aware they were being piggy backed by the Congregation , because America was made to say "Back off" , think ı started some thread because ı wanted to insult them . Don't know how that happens if they all have a picture or two in their phones and breast size was being discussed in the streets , like 2008 or 9 or whatever , you know , first noticed , in a phone shop . You know , like proves am a foreign asset and stuff , if married to a Page 3 Girl . Not that far-fetched , when compared to things to they are now known to have done . Then Party and Congregation start the infighting like slowly and Party people start the Zoo trips , with some nation level journalist calls on me to mind my supposed Page 3 wife to behave modestly , or maybe ı should stop the internet , in the street , to my face , or whatever . Congregation wants "Friends" as allies and Party wants to beat 'em to the post and stuff like that . Years pass and how happy ı am that Americans have now killed the guy who bombed USS Cole . Now that their plate is empty , can we just go and sink a CVN ?

    the reason for the rant is the thing that seems to have started afflicting my flash drives . Pictures do not show , folders disappear . In 2013 or 14 they would erase it by hand , to prove ı was an idiot until ı started adding numbers to the folder names ; book 14 , would mean that folder was supposed to contain 14 pdf files . This way , ı would know they had deleted some of the content or the entire folder , even ; contrary to their claims that ı wouldn't . Some kids have played computer games from my flash drive , using the exe contained within in some opened rar folder , one guy fell in love with an Angelina Jolie lookalike he saw in my downloads . Uhm , don't ask , shall we ? Never ending , despite states officially leaving me alone , despite it gets repeated at least once every month , and ı see people are laughing at stuff ı am on my way to the webcafe to post . Today , oh my , ı even haven't started typing it at home yet . Oh-kay , "Friends" have an idea , will ı be left alone ?

    ah , just don't ask . Because the 4th of January has offended some guy , the entire folder is empty when you open it , but it readily keeps 3.1 GBs of stuff when you look at the properties of the USB . The guy must be the one that personally was ready to attack me at some web cafe in like 2010 ? Seriously , when we sink a CVN , there will be nothing wrong with my USBs or computer . ı might even get proper dental care !
