Heh, last night was fun, I took part in the Heinlein Society annual meeting online and had a little chat with some of the team I met at Worldcon. It was good to hear their voices again and to hear they were doing alright despite some of them dialling in from somewhere in the middle of Hurricane Irma.
I didn’t win the grand prize for new members, but oh well.
I was planning on staying up all night and writing, and I believe I would have felt less tired now if I had managed to do so. But instead I burned out at about 03:00am and went to bed for four hours. Terrible lapse in judgement.
Today, however, I have been entertained by the changes that occur in a (hypothetical) manual (definitely not one I have worked on in a language specialist capacity, perish the thought) when the instructions recommend the use of cloves instead of gloves, and scarper instead of scraper.
You wind up with a very smelly, very cowardly approach to maintenance, I can tell you.
