What makes you Happy?
« on: August 18, 2019, 05:15:09 PM »
Counter for the hate thread.

A while back I had to do some maintenance on my computer, and I saw the entire faceplate bus is just a burnt out spot on the mainboard. I cleaned it up with my plastic tweezers and a q-tip (A sin, I know, but it worked).

Today I went to test a clip on microphone, and found out there is no mic input on the rear panel, just the one on the front panel. It had previously not operated, but I figured, hey, worth a shot.

Not only did the mic jack work, the headphone one does too now! And it's good clean sound, no clipping or errors!

That makes me very happy.

just one little time change so a draft board in 1968 turns down the bribe to accept "bone spurs" and we are home-free.

Been feeling lousy for a while now, like most of September. Today it just... stopped hurting. I didn't know things like that could happen. Very Happy.

Of Mere Being

The palm at the end of the mind,
Beyond the last thought, rises
In the bronze decor,

A gold-feathered bird
Sings in the palm, without human meaning,
Without human feeling, a foreign song.

You know then that it is not the reason
That makes us happy or unhappy.
The bird sings. Its feathers shine.

The palm stands on the edge of space.
The wind moves slowly in the branches.
The bird's fire-fangled feathers dangle down.

Wallace Stevens, c. 1967.
