in which there is much reflection and little action

Slowly but surely, I'm working on the fine art of saving myself time and energy. Also closing tabs. ... okay, I lie about closing tabs; I have around 63 open at the moment. Which is pretty low! Actually it's about 10 lower than it'd've been maybe a month ago, so! ... And I wonder why my computer yells at me.

\o\ I set up my secondary email and the email I sign up with things with (it forwards to my main email; I tried setting that one up, too, but Yahoo! apparently demands that one give them money for the honour of using a proper email client) in Thunderbird and ... sort of trained the spam filter. A little.

Strangely, I keep changing the keyboard settings to Hindi today instead of Japanese. At this rate, I may have to remove a few keyboard options. I do like being able to hit ctrl+shift a few times to type русский язык or 日本語, though. Or at least theoretically I can type in Cyrillic; I'm unfamiliar with the transliteration they're using and I certainly have no idea what I'm doing if I, say, set it to act like a Russian keyboard. ... I should really get around to looking through the Learn Russian book kiraboo gave me for my birthday more, but then I haven't gotten much farther with German or Japanese lately, either. I've practiced Japanese more than German, but mainly kanji (through Kanji Sonomama Rakubiki Jiten) and not much of that, either.

I still need to bind a key I don't use to alt-gr on this computer.... I did it on flypPC a while ago (with the right-alt, though I do apparently use that, so I think I may bind it to Insert or whatever the key brings up the right-click menu instead. Only the right-click key is potentially useful as I try to avoid using my mouse more than necessary, so I suppose it'd be Insert. I never intentionally click that.), but I haven't gotten around to it on pinaPC. Possibly it's piñaPC, rather than pinaPC, but I might as well give it a proper name. Whenever flypPC's replaced with a different box (hopefully not anytime soon, though the monitor's half-dead and is being replaced with a much larger one), I might name it albertoPC. It'd probably only be funny to me, but that's who matters there, right?

It snowed today.
