speaking of census, I've not done that yet.

Avatar 8:10pm WR:

WH Henry, recently looked for some census numbers and I looked at wikipedia pages. For 2010 and 2000 at least they detail the ethnicity questions. Interesting to see the changes. It is a complex matter that can have some use but also liable for manipulation for political and economic reasons. I am mixed in response to their approach and in my answers as well.

Random music comment. Being a New Orleans refugee, I always pay attention when someone covers a NOLA tune. The Lords in 1967 were doing Rockin' Pneumonia with was first released in 1957. A 10 year gap. 1970 (for simple math purposes) was 50 years ago. Also very interesting to reflect on the pop rock changes in the 5 years from 1967 to 1972. I wonder if they seem so great just because I was active consumer during that time. Does a 20 year old now hear similar major change from 67 to 72.

When I was a kid in Japan, out cross-the-street neighbors invited us for dinner (this was 1987). They had a toilet w/ a seat that could be warmed, blow hot or cold air up your bum, and a bidet. My bros. and I were fascinated by it. So, my brother goes in there, accidentally sets off the bidet, and couldn't turn it off. He got me, and asked me to turn it off. I had been in the country for almost a year, so my hiragana was crap, so I couldn't figure it out (I was 11). So, the bathroom got flooded w/ 5 cm of water before we came out of the bathroom and begged our hosts to turn it off. They laughed (we weren't invited for dinner again, but allowed to played in their factory industrial lot after work hours.

Gary, can you briefly explain again what this Czukay album is about?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:54pm Gary:

Aren't soap cakes, tho? Cakes of soap? So, technically, you could squeeze both into a single project
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:55pm spodiodi:

urinal cakes
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:55pm Gary:

TDK: Yes, will do at the break in a moment!

i like that you mention number of years with a decimal, Gary
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:02pm Gary:

Haha, b/c I was reading verbatim!
Avatar 9:03pm TDK60:

..thanks Gary. I recall I got my first computer around '94. Began using email in '98.

Avatar 9:10pm WR:

Doing the census online was reasonably painless. Much easier than I remember with the forms. Now more paper for the recycle bin. The "race" questions allow for multi-ethnic identifying people. They do use the questionable term "race" instead of ethnic origin, but whatever.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:11pm chresti:

I started using e-mail in 98, too.

Granny. I've gotten odder, wackier, since we last spoke. The "crazy stirs" I hear they call 'em. But I don't think WFMUers mind or notice all that much.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:18pm spodiodi:

was sending first internet email in 89 and bbsing since maybe 83. i love my computer

My first email was Prodigy.net, I believe in 1989. I only emailed my friends, as I had no idea what else do w/ it, being 13.

i got set up with an email account c.2009; received my first spam maybe 5 years ago (?); had my first personal (non-commerce or government-related) email within the past 2 years.
i'd like to do a lot less of this.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:25pm Granny Spicy Tuna (e/em):

TDK60: i am keeping careful tabs on everyone's wackiness

i think i started using email in 94 or 95, back when Quark Express was my best friend
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:31pm Webhamster Henry:

I was on a lot of "pre internet" mail systems, via dialups, bang paths, VAXmail, etc. I actually wrote an email server / rules engine in 1997.
Avatar 9:31pm Franco Twinkie:

Okay, I just did an hour walk. Do I feel better? Kind of. At least I don't feel any worse. I'll improve my sleep, I think.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:32pm coelacanth∅:

spodi -less time dealing with emails. it's time-consuming reviewing them, even if i'm just deleting the majority of them.
Avatar 9:32pm LambdaCalculus:

I had a nice walk this morning. Went to a Mexican bodega a couple of miles down the road from my house, bought a breakfast cemita, came home, started work from home.
Avatar 9:33pm LambdaCalculus:

Just weird to see my town so deathly quiet.
Avatar 9:33pm LambdaCalculus:

Webhamster Henry, those were fun days!
Avatar 9:33pm Franco Twinkie:

I could use a cemita right about now.

The cemita will have to wait till the morning. I'm going to make some salmon salad and put it on toast.

Police cruiser just went partway down my street and back again with a searchlight checking the streetsides. Whuttup? Is it a normal abnormality in the neighborhood, or about the shutdown thing -- though that seems unlikely -- or what...? These times, these times.

suv cruiser rolled up my street and back today too -- it's a wfmu listener sting

Don't think we have a curfew.
I stood inside the storm door and watched them return up the street. "I am a citizen and I SEE you!"
Avatar 9:59pm WR:

I shared a chicken milanese cemita Sunday night. When partner went to pick it up, she found that they had the door locked, you had to call and the cook brought your order to the door and handed it out. Lots of chipotle peppers and Mexican mozz. sadly no papalo. So huge could barely eat half.
