I love them.  They're so cheery.  And the music is a plus.  Thanks!

We all need a little beering cheering up.
Don't put off until tomorrow, what you can put off until the day after.

There's lots of good cheap rum here.  I'll raise a glass to you this evening, as I know you like to visit these parts for holidays and were most likely unable to come this year.

I just got one in my peripheral as I was reading a post and it gave me a start, as I thought it was a bug crawling down my screen, lol.

I ran out of Bounty and Spiced Bounty as of Monday this week. Now I know that pandemics are possible, next year I'll bring home double of everything.

Hey, at least there's some movement in your living space.

As a point of interest, I think there is a little delay with posts updating with the animations active.

Hah, I was just in the wallpaper thread yesterday, and back in 2015, you said that we should have some sort of Christmas theme.

I hate muzak, but the typing chimes are magical. I love it.

I had a few days off due to suppliers delays (and an arm injury) so I thought I'd do something cheery.

I'm doubly happy that you like it.

What he said.

Plus, I have discovered that you can play the ornaments like bells and actually pick out Christmas carols on them like some kind of online glockenspiel.   Totally fun.

I didn't realize it made sounds as you typed (I don't usually have the sound on when accessing the fora) and realized accidentally when hitting one of the number row keys so quickly picked out Jingle Bells...

[p[p[you7 279 290
[p[p[you7 279 209790=w

ew= w=0 =09

[p[p[you7 279 290
[p[p[you7 279 209790=w

That's about as much as I've gotten. The bells don't seem to be "exactly" in the same key and I feel the notes played by the "0" (zero, also the forward slash) is a little off. I also don't know the lower lead in notes for the "ew= w=0 =09" interlude so those are omitted.

dweez, you win.  I, like an idiot, was dragging the cursor over the ornaments across the top, and playing them like piano keys.  The keyboard strokes are so much more effective.
