Looking into a book.
Car is (allegedly) fixed, I'll pick it up tomorrow
Got a book! Introduction to Algorithms, standard CompSci text of Cormen, Leiserson and Rivest. Old edition, but I don't think that'll be a big problem.
It's been a really rough day for NI twitter, I really don't think I can stomach hearing any more about Bloody Sunday
Was wondering about the bell chimes you hear e.g. in school anime all the time, prompted by hearing them in town earlier today. Turns out they actually originated in Cambridge, so, that's neat!
Don't they still play Auld Lang Syne every night when they close shopping centers in Japan?
Yeah, as the BBC said: 'it casts a long shadow'...
Evening! Saw Captain Marvel, really enjoyed it.

Grave of the Fireflies is a dark pun of it.
Now if only I could remember what I came here to write about before I saw that post.
It’s an interesting place, Japan...
Morning all. Brief shower of rain, there.
Morning Mr B (@: I'm off to pick up the old automobile soon
Morning all! New Hello Internet today.
Auld Lang Syne (the tune anyway) was also used as the national anthem of Korea for a while.
Morning Mane (@: car is alive
Last academic lecture probably ever! Was a good one.
Glad you enjoyed it.
There's the rain back again.
I guess if we're talking about Auld Lang Syne:
Open question - I've been given someone's "Whatsapp number". I do not have and do not want to have that service. Can I send texts to them via another texting service?
It's just occurred to me what a weird name for a messaging service that is
