i didn't know that the man who wrote the queen's gambit was walter tevis, the same guy who wrote the man who fell to earth.

at least i've read the man who fell to earth. but only after i saw the movie.

i also learnt that baby octopuses/octopi like to ride on the tops of jellyfish.

it's been a strange day.

i have not.

don't mean to be a tech-idjut, but i am. a link would help.

i really have gone off on the docu-zone. the last one i watched a few days ago was about elizabeth friedman, who basically *started* code decryption that majorly mattered in WWI, the whole capone/mafia takedown, and WWII. of course, they couldn't let a woman take credit. j. edgar hoover took it. it was only after she died that what she did came out. ...which saved who knows how many lives.

https://www.pbs.org/wgbh/americanexperience/films/codebreaker/

it's free to watch if anyone is interested. i love codes and cyphers. two very diff things.

but as i am in this zone, any link anyone wants to send me... hoooo ya.

My son learnt me that I could do a search for a Japanese business in English. I needed a iPod repair shop and typed in "iPod repair" and got a bunch of choices near my home.
