See you tomorrow. Pls make sure you mop up any spilled OJ before it stains the carpet... otherwise it will need to go into the washing machine.
@hlehyaric Not available for your long black steam Lokomotive, dear.
@Steffie Sleep well in your bettgestell.
@Gwen-Dragon OK, I'm fine to get the new baby stroller.
@Steffie That's another drawback, those pesky time zones. It really sucks.
Have a nice night and come back en grande forme!

@Steffie Only 8 hours of sleep on a Sunday? Are you kidding?
And being able to write such a "tartine" so early? How much energy do you have?
Definition of tartine tartine :
Fam. Long written development, long speech, often without interest. There is more real poetry here than in all the bread on God, the soul, and humanity (Flaub., Corresp., 1852, p. 439). I gave my bread without the slightest emotion, and we applauded very politely (Mérimée, Lettres à une inconnue, t. 1, 1854, p. 341).
2. In partic. [In the lang. theater people] Long tirade. We have seen actors (...) lose their heads in the middle of a slice of bread, either because the blower was late, or because he had fallen asleep (Thibaut, Manuel souffleur, nd, p. 8). [In the lang. journalists] Long, boring article. The long slices of bread are made in advance; news should be short because of time and typo (Morienval, gde press Creators, 1934, p. 60).
@Ornorm Less, actually. I woke at 06:00 [tis 09:07 atm], but i have loooooooooooong hot showers, thus there was a gap between my waking up & then appearing here.
I've always been a night owl needing little sleep, afaik. Mind you, now that i'm in my tricentennial year, i've noticed my sleep patterns sometimes go weird, as in sometimes i still do fine with 4 - 7 hrs sleep, but other times i seem to need a lot longer to zzzzzz-away.
I blame evil demons & the colour orange.

@Steffie In any case :
@Ornorm Indeed, enjoying my first one now. Yummy.
It seems that the carpet survived the [my] night ok.

I've got a new icon in my notifications:
(I' m watching the topic)
@hlehyaric I'm now reconsidering my tactic of last night to pin this topic in my tabs column. Vivaldi is interpreting this to mean that i am continuously watching the thread, & then either flashes the notification extremely briefly then removes it, or doesn't even bother notifying me. Oh Belgium.
@Steffie I also noticed it. Doesn't sound like such a great idea…️
Maybe you could encourage him also joining the forum
Recruitment attempt? Well done.
@hlehyaric Yeah but then the reply was not productive, so i'm not trying anymore.
Sure, why not. I'm striving to win this month's new contest ... get the most new recruits & win a
newfreshly washed Tony T-shirt.
@Steffie Let's hope you don't wait too long for moderation…
Anyone familiar with this?
This site is a collection of generative music pieces which can be listened to. The term "generative music" describes music which changes continuously and is created by a system. Such systems generate music for as long as one is willing to listen.
The pieces featured on this site are not recordings. The music is generated by a different system created for each piece. These systems have been designed such that each performance is unique and plays continuously without repetition. Learn more about generative music from this introduction.
Most of the pieces featured are quite minimal and ambient. Here "ambient" means the music is intended to enhance one's environment but not demand attention.
This site's offerings have grown hugely since i first came across it a couple of years ago [i don't visit very often, as mostly my all-day most-night streaming is simply via Radiotray-NG]. Also, it seems now to be playing nicely with Vivaldi. Iirc in the older times it tended to pull high cpu% off at least one core. I suppose that implies fixes/.improvements in either the site itself, or V.
Anyway, IMO this is pretty cool.
@Steffie I didn't know that site. Seems interesting. I'll give it a try.
