So the new (refurbished) computer is set up, and I'm not entirely displeased, though I can't seem to find settings for various applications that make them look like they did on the previous computer, and it's very disconcerting. For example, the font on this update page is tiny, and I can't figure out how to make it larger. It was larger before, but I don't remember making it so— it was simply the default, as far as I can recall.

I still haven't arranged to fetch the various things that remain trapped on the previous computer. But then I never got around to retrieving the stuff that was on Butch, either, nor most of what was on Sluggo, so there's no reason I should expect it to be any different this time. After all, I'm not any different this time.

The warm weather is over, and rain is possible starting Thursday, with rain certain Friday and early Saturday, possible again on Sunday, and then after two days with a slight chance it goes back up above 50% again next Wednesday and Thursday. There's no reason to be surprised at this sudden onslaught of precipitation. Last year was wet, and wet years here are more likely to be followed by wet years than by dry years.

It's unlikely I'll be able to get around to reading all the stuff I missed during the hiatus occasioned by Sluggo Junior's misbehavior. I seem to have less energy for backtracking and filling in gaps than I once had, and whatever I do manage tends to go rather slowly. Especially when the font is as tiny as this one is.

Maybe tomorrow will feel a bit more normal than today did. But I'm not counting on it.
