Or even just post the 80% version :) [considering finishing the last 20% of a game usually takes 80% of the time...]

Happy 6/9

(Get it, 69)

All non-americans be like: What's so special about 9/6?

The Japanese appreciate it, since their date format is 2016年6月9日 :)

Srsly, in terms of levels of logicalness, Japan > everywhere else > America >:( ;)

[EDIT]
I have an evil printer (HP Photosmart 5510):

  • It promises me "rewards" for using genuine cartridges, which turn out to be 5% off some service I definitely don't want. Thanks. I cannot tell you the degree to which the misuse of that word "reward" makes me angry.

  • It kept running out of inks I wasn't even using.

  • It just refused to print in black and white because it claimed there was something wrong with the colour cartridges. Textbook Oatmeal. Also it won't even tell me what the problem is.

Well I've finally had enough and I've ordered a Brother DCP-9015CDW (I got it cheaper than that though). It's a laser (actually LED) printer, which is good for me since I don't print very often and inkjets seem to have to waste ink just to keep themselves working (but HP are still evil for the other reasons). Also it does full duplex, which is a feature I really wished I had.

I'm going to work from home today until it arrives, which could be any time between 9 and 7 (yay) :)

By the way, I didn't choose the old HP one. It was a Christmas present or something. Aren't I a grateful bastard :)

Do you say fourth of July or July the fourth?

I make a conscious effort to say "the fourth of July", even though most people around me say "July the fourth", because I think the latter is an American wording and therefore naturally it needs to be resisted. I could be wrong of course. 8-)

"Fourth of July" is a special holiday, like "Christmas" or "Boxing Day".

More frequently with any other date people will say "June 30th" or "August 2nd".

Johan Halmén
Member #1,550

people will say "June 30th"

Is that "June thirtieth" or "June the thirtieth"? I'm not a native English speaker, but to me, either sounds very technical, clumsy and shortened, not very different from "nine-eleven", while "the thirtieth of June" would sound more like natural language.

I guess I'm just affected by Swedish, my mother tongue, where we say "den trettionde juni", not "juni den trettionde". Though I wouldn't be supprised if the latter would become more popular in Sweden, where they just love to destroy their language and replace everything with English idioms.

Mark, really? What I said reflects my approach to and understanding of any date, not just that one - yet you're saying that the one date which is particularly only relevant to Americans is the one date where people DON'T use what I understood to be the American wording :o

Johan, you talk as if you emigrated - where to? :)

Nope. I'm born in Finland. Swedish is spoken in Sweden, Finland and Estonia. Only in Sweden it's the main language.

Clearly the current topic has died, and I can't think of another one right now.

I got my PocketChip on Friday however. Now to figure what to do with it. Seems pretty powerful though. Can't wait for the combine firmware that will allow me to use both the PocketChip and the HDMI adapter.

This morning I'm a walking dead. Last night music set repetition stopped so late that I wasn't home until 3:00 am. Alarm clocked at 7:00, and it.was.so.hard.

I have a complaint! Why are the chips on credit cards so damn easy to break? For those who lived in areas where the chips were standard for over a decade, do they break often for you?

With the mag stripe, often times you can "fix" by using a plastic bag (Why it works I have no clue), but near as I can tell, not the case for chips.

I've been lucky myself.

But something that I do struggle with: trousers when you cycle a lot! Why do they break so often?

I have only had my chip "break" once. It literally cracked in half, along with the card surrounding it. I think just normal wear/tear from being put in and out of a wallet and sitting on it, etc. Not unreasonable. I think that the chip readers are far more vulnerable. I've been to several establishments where the cashier has to take my card and do it herself because the machine is finicky. And sometimes it just won't work at all.

We now have "contactless payment" (I can't figure out a more generic technology name/brand that applies universally) in most establishments. You just bring the non-chip end of your card into proximity of a reader and it pays without entering a pin number. Seems somewhat insecure, but I'm assuming that the banks/credit companies are assuming most of the risk (which will obviously get transferred to us, the customer)... But people don't care. Everybody uses them. They are extremely convenient. But you still have issues with them where they just don't work. Contactless is faster, but contactless + chip + pin is slower than just chip + pin. :P Also an RFID-blocking wallet is now mandatory for many cards, but it's hard to find a durable RFID-blocking wallet that won't break the bank.
