(Real life details resume soon.)
For those interested, I’ve almost gotten my computer to a state I wanted it to be in. With all the moving data out, formatting, repartitioning, reinstalling OSing, moving data back in, … I’ve managed to reclaim over 20 gigs of space I’d arbitrarily given up earlier. It’s amazing how much you can save when you have only one copy of a piece of software on one OS installed and not have redundancies running all about. (MikTeX/LaTeX, MATLAB/Octave, Windows/GNU/Linux, …)
Strangely enough, I don’t miss Visual Studio, I miss the frickin’ Canon “EOS Viewer”. A tool made by Canon to read my photos in Canon’s own RAW off the camera.
On to lighter things.
Since I am not one to read laundry instructions, I ended up washing a new woolen sweater in near steam when it wasn’t designed to be exposed to over 50° C or something, twice. The first time, you would say that the result was an overly snug fit. The second time, I have just one word for it, (OK, two) — Sports Bra.
Cue tasteful humour.
