Venerable Member, Male, from The Netherlands

TopG removed the captcha again... but put in a "one more step" thingy beforehand... that I get almost everytime... so it's actually gotten worse, as this takes longer because the page has to load again... Sigh. :P Oct 4, 2019

      In 47 minutes EMC time will only be 5 hours in the past for me instead of 6 hours... :P I like daylight saving time (summertime and wintertime). :) When I lose an hour, it's less fun though - still fun and interesting, but I miss my hour. :P Now though, a free extra hour. :D

        I guess you're right, Tom. I used to be against DST just because of having to change the clocks and such, but I do actually like it being dark earlier in Winter and light later in Summer.

        @Soul: that sounds broken. Seems like you actually need more or different DST. ;)
        @607: yup, that is what I think many people aren't realising; how ridiculous the sun's rising/setting time is when we don't have DST. Thinking about it, I'm kind of surprised they only thought of it in the 1900s, seeing how big of an improvement it has on being able to live in the light.

        Indeed. :D I remember that loooong ago I had three times as many posts as likes and thought I'd never get more likes than posts, and wondered how people who did have that got it. :P

      Why do I suck so much and am I seemingly incapable of going to bed on time? It's past midnight (the real midnight, not the fake midnight of 00:00) again... >.< sigh.

        Humid Subtropical Cfa is the Koppen climate I live in, but it doesn't feel like that. Our record high in August is 42 degrees and record low in February is -26 degrees... So pretty extreme climate I live in.

      It's quite warm and sunny today, got a nice tailwind towards home, and I have some nice music. It's so nice to cycle home on a Friday after a long week with these conditions. :)

        Blegh. He gave me notes cause I'm homebound for a day, and it showed the "macron is the long" and "micron is the short" when I still don't get *anything* about scansion so notes got caught up.. blegh... Thank you.

        Also, actually, we always just call them "short" and "long", much easier to understand. :P

        Yes, but the the symbol thing a mijjigger on the notes was called "macron is long, micron is short" and I didn't quite get what "long" was at the time

      Why do I keep forgetting that when I have first period off I have to go to bed at 1:00 AM instead of 1:10... >.< (1:10 is when I don't have first period off, but went to bed too late. :P)

        Going to bed 10 minutes later when you need to be at school an hour earlier.

        Ah. First hour = wake up at 7:10, second hour = wake up at 8:30. Sleeping goes in 90 minute intervals, so I try to sleep 1.5 × X hours. However, no first period is only 80 minutes later... causing me to forget that I don't have those last 10 minutes. :P

        Yup, except that on pc it's only a relatively small black bar, and you have a higher resolution to put it on in the first place (making it be smaller too), while on my phone it still shows the text and is significantly larger.

      At the moment there are 28 AliExpress packages coming to my house, some of which with multiple items inside them... Why am I addicted to buying random stuff on AliExpress...? :P It's so fun though, getting all these weird items you can't find anywhere else... :)

        Yeah, I sometimes think about that too, so I try to combine as many things as possible (e.g. buy multiple of one thing in one go, or buy multiple things from one seller in one go, so they can put all in one package). Also, many of the packages are super tiny (basically a post card, smaller even), so tiny and light that you sometimes wonder how it didn't get lost along the way... :P

        Speaking about getting lost on the way, so far, that's "only" happened three times... :P The weird thing is is that that wasn't even for super thin packages, those actually had some weight and size in them. For two of those (which together wasn't even worth 60 cents... :P) I decided to contact the usually great AliExpress support, and the third one will be resent next week, after talking with the nice seller. :)

      Solution (mostly) to the bleh new Google Chrome look update: go to "chrome://flags", search for "UI Layout", select "normal", click on reload browser, and it's mostly back to what it used to look like. :D
