What was it this time? Two little non-world-shattering things:
First, it always fascinates me how facile the mind is at the most unexpected times. For instance, while sleeping. When I first got my current cell phone (I went for years without one, actually) I never noticed when it was ringing: my mind just wasn't used to a phone that wasn't on my desk ringing having anything to do with me what-so-ever. Now, however, it wakes me from my sleep.
Yesterday I was sleeping soundly and someone called around 6:45. The phone was in the living room, but my mind nudged me (just barely) awake and I stumbled out to get it. I'll sleep through all sorts of noise and mayhem .. but things my mind decides are important and useful will get me up. My consciousness may be slumbering, but the mind is still simmering.
To those who have my cell number, please don't test this theory out. I do like sleeping a lot more than talking on the phone.
To those who end up sleeping near me, try talking to me while I'm in that state. Chances are I'll babble back at you. The phrase builder in my head apparently doesn't shut off much, though when I'm asleep it generates essentially random, if somehow syntactically sensible, strings of words. It's like I'm channeling every English emblazoned Japanese t-shirt while I snore.
The other odd thing I remembered I wanted to jot down somewhere was that I had a nice little surprise the other day when I started konversation and noticed it was using the Oxygen style .. I hadn't actually noticed that in a recent-ish extragear/network/ update, a working konversation build was to be had. What a nice surprise!
With Digikam's KDE4 version working very nicely (better than the last KDE3 version I had did for me, actually, so kudos to the Digikamers) and K3B shaping up nicely as well, I'm now down to exactly
It's a kind of emotional moment .. a passing of sorts. It reminds me of when I was finally able to get rid of KDE1's libs because there were no more apps using them on my machine. *tears in a poignant moment* :)
Cue the music, James.
