  • Sat, 12:36: Goddam Windows Media Player was displaying some duplicate filenames so I deleted dupes and now the files are gone
  • Sat, 12:37: Nothing I hate like I hate discovering a new problem just when I'm getting up to do something else

  • Sat, 12:42: So on Android there's a way to insert a manual message break in a text? Cuz I hit it by accident and dunno what I did
  • Sat, 14:55: I can't delete the ghost filenames that're still there either, prolly cuz they no longer are matched with files to be deleted
  • Sat, 17:14: Okay, problem solved! I redownloaded all the files that had got deleted. 1/
  • Sat, 17:15: This of course recreated the duplicate filenames in WMP. But I'd figured out what to do about that 2/
  • Sat, 17:16: (a benefit to having been drawn away for a few hours before I could do anything about it, I guess). 3/
  • Sat, 17:17: I went back and deleted the duplicate filenames again, but this time I chose "Delete from library but not computer" 4/
  • Sat, 17:18: instead of "Delete from library and computer" which is what I usually use, cuz usually I'm deleting a file I've replaced. 5/

(I said I'd label grief posts from now on but this one's about not knowing whether something's grief or status quo.)

So after listening to the top hits station again for a week*, I returned to the eighties-till-now station this morning because top hits wouldn't come in on the desk radio. The eighties-till-now station, mind you, is the one I initially discovered because it's the, or a, station in town that plays Christmas songs all month from Thanksgiving. Except, I discovered this morning, they implement Christmas carols not Thanksgiving day but Thanksgiving week. I've been guessing, this being the second holiday season after she went, that this is when I'm going to find out what holiday seasons are going to be like from here on out. I won't know for sure till the third time, really, but I wasn't expecting to start gathering data till Thursday.

* And being taken aback at how much the playlist has changed while I was away for a few months. Classic rock stations don't do that.

RT @iglvzx But there's no middle ground. You're either for a hate mob (GG) or you're not. To be neutral, you have to remain uneducated. #StopGamerGate
RT @iglvzx Neutrality isn't: "Oh, well, if we just listened to GG, their doxing, harassment, death & rape threats might be justified!" #StopGamerGate

#ManOfSteel teaches me how everyone but me feels about the STAR WARS prequels.

damn that felt like gas not fluid

RT @LOLGOP I get it. Republicans support universal background checks for wedding catering but not for guns.

Of course the next horrible thing will be that the #WalterScott shooter will get the support #MikeBrown's shooter got.

Listening to contemporary music radio about three weeks now. Lotta this stuff has a strong unacknowledged influence from disco.

Watching Rand Paul's announcement on @TheDailyShow. Has he got sunglasses tanlines?

I choose to believe I still average a cartoon a day and days like the last two fuel that belief.

Threw out the deep freezer contents I was never gonna eat and turned it off, and this month's power bill is about halved.

When people are being terrorized out of their homes and public appearances, ethics is not what your side of the argument is about.

"Missy isn't the Master regenerated, she's the Rani regenerated." That's preposterous. You know what's…

My capacity to be happy in a manner you don't understand isn't a flaw. Your incapacity to understand is.

My starfield background file, since I last used it two weeks ago, and half or more of the files in that directory have vanished.
There might be a flashdrive at home with those files. But the loss itself is a bigger concern than the content lost. How the hell'd it happen?
Last week's backup of the home laptop to the flashdrive must be where things went wrong, cuz the home laptop's not missing those files.
Now to this week's backup.

Took both NyQuil and decongestant in hopes of sleeping through the night. Worst coughing/wheezing night ever, no exaggeration.
