To vien dzirdu, cik slikti bija pagātnē. Nu jā, nebija datoru un aifonu, bet cilvēki vismaz sarunājās savā starpā un lasīja grāmatas.

ikdienas piezīmes

laikam loģiski, ka man kreisā puse ir daudz līdzsvarotāka par labo, spriežot pēc treniņu rezultātiem

un kaut kā visam pa vidu mati ir kļuvuši tik gari un tik daudz, ka ar vienu dvieli vairs nepietiek, kur tos ietīt, arvien biežāk matu gumijas nevar tos īsti noturēt. un ar vienu bļodiņu krāsas vairs nepietiek.

bet dzīvoklis turpina apaugt ar lietām. tas laikam nav īpaši pārsteidzoši.

“The Russians are adept at identifying Ukrainian positions by their electrometric signatures,” Army Col. Liam Collins wrote in the August issue of Army Magazine.

“In one tactic, soldiers receive texts telling them they are ‘surrounded and abandoned.’ Minutes later, their families receive a text stating, ‘Your son is killed in action,’ which often prompts a call or text to the soldiers. Minutes later, soldiers receive another message telling them to ‘retreat and live,’ followed by an artillery strike to the location where a large group of cellphones was detected.”

Droši vien atkārtošos, sakot, ka žurnāla «Ir» nelasītāji palaiž garām labākās nesmieklīgās anekdotes pasaulē (nu vai vismaz Latvijā noteikti). Piemēram:
Sporta zālē.
«Kas tas par trenažieri?»
Instruktors: «Sols.»
«Ideāli!»
«Jūsu vīram ir tāda dīvaina izloksne! No kurienes viņš ir?»
«No vīna pagraba!»

Kur lai liek PCI paplašinājuma kartes? Man vairs nav neviena datōra ar vecajiem PCI (bez express) slotiem, toties ir:

PCI IDE adapteris;
PCI SATA adapteris;
PCI eSATA adapteris;

un vēl čupiņa ar IDE cietņiem.

Netieku gudrs, vai kādam tas varētu noderēt.

Laika un ne tikai vērotāja piezīmes.  
Šodien vairāk nekā jebkad izjūtu reliģiju izcelsmes jēgu un būtību. Staigājot pa āru, vērojot šo rudens dienu un atceroties vasaru, tā vien kārojas paskatīties debesīs un no visas sirds teikt "paldies!". Un tiešām ir tāda vēlme, lai tam paldiesam būtu arī konkrēts adresāts.

Lai cik neticami tas nebūtu, es esmu ceļā uz mājām. Mājām - mājām, nevis naktsmājām. Ir drausmīgs nogurums, neizgulējums, pohas, bet ir arī baigais prieks, lepnums un labi pavadīta laika/darba sajūta. Man ļoti, ļoti patīk strādāt šajā komandā un man liekas mums kopā ļoti labi sanāk.

ōpijs, ('tarp)tautiskais  
lasu Ellenas La Mottes grāmatiņu The Opium Monopoly

https://archive.org/details/opiummonopoly00lamouoft/page/n7

In a book shop in Shanghai, we came upon a small book with an arresting title, "Drugging a Nation," by Samuel Merwin. It was published in 1908, eight years before we chanced upon it, shabby and shop worn, its pages still uncut. The people of Shanghai, the great International Settlement of this largest city and most important seaport of China, did not have to read it. They knew, doubtless, all that its pages could disclose. We, however, found it most enlightening. In it there is this description of the British Opium Monopoly:

"In speaking of it as a 'monopoly' I am not employing a cant word for effect. I am not making a case. That is what it is officially styled in a certain blue book on my table which bears the title, 'Statement Exhibiting the Moral and Material Progress of India during the year 1905-06,' and which was ordered by the House of Commons to be printed, May 10, 1907. . . . Now to get down to cases, just what this Government Opium Monopoly is, and just how does it work? An excerpt from the rather ponderous blue book will tell us. It may be dry but it is official and unassailable. It is also short.

"'The opium revenue' — thus the blue book —"is partly raised by a monopoly of the production of the drug in Bengal and the United provinces, and partly by the levy of a duty on all opium imported from native states. ... In these two provinces, the crop is grown under the control of a government department, which arranges the total area which is to be placed under the crop, with a view to the amount of opium required.'

"So much for the broader outline. Now for a few of the details: 'The cultivator of opium in these monopoly districts receives a license, and is granted advances to enable him to prepare the land for the crop, and he is required to deliver the whole of the product at a fixed price to opium agents, by whom it is dispatched to the government factories at Patna and Ghazipur.'

"The money advanced to the cultivator bears no interest. The British Indian government lends money without interest in no other cases. Producers of crops other than opium are obliged to get along without free money.

"When it has been manufactured, the opium must be disposed of in one way and another; accordingly: 'The supply of prepared opium required for consumption in India is made over to the Excise Department . . . the chests of "provision" opium, for export, are sold at monthly sales, which take place at Calcutta.' For the meaning of the curious term, 'provision opium' we have only to read on a little further. 'The opium is received and prepared at the government factories, where the out-turn of the year included 8,774 chests of opium for the Excise Department, about three hundred pounds of various opium alkaloids, thirty maunds of medical opium; and 51,770 chests of provision opium for the Chinese market." There are about 140 pounds in a chest. . . . Last year the government had under poppy cultivation 654,928 acres. And the revenue to the treasury, including returns from auction sales, duties and license fees, and deducting all 'opium expenditures' was nearly $ 22,000,000."

"Nixon was suffering from mental illness and taking daily medication without a prescription. He was under heavy stress from the Watergate scandal. Schlesinger (Secretary of Defence) ordered military not to react to orders from the White House unless he cleared them first. Nixon ordered bombing raids that were silently canceled by Kissinger."
