Crochet, Dvorak, and Links

Today I redesigned the afghan I’m crocheting to account for the impending shortage of yarn. I decided to try adding to more colors to it: it’s off-white and navy and dark green, so some lighter shades of blue and green should work.

Went to two stores (the third was closed) and they didn’t have a large selection. I may try the third store tomorrow, or go to a real yarn store (although the real yarn store does not sell the brand I want, according to their website). I don’t want to buy online because I need to compare the colors. I have plenty of time to find yarn, since I still have 48 green and white squares to make.

Had more success at Lowe’s: we now have tomato, hot pepper, and basil plants, along with some lettuce, parsley, mint, and morning glory seeds. But I have to go back and get more dirt.

Meant to go to the park today for more flower photos, but everything took forever.


  • Dvorak driver for the Palm Universal Wireless Keyboard! — Hacked together by some random guy. The []{} aren’t there (instead there are two sets of -_=+), but I can live with that. This makes me very happy, as I like to take my Palm to the bookstore to write, and I can’t type in qwerty very well anymore.
  • A review of the three tutorials I used to learn Dvorak — I don’t think I linked to that before. I need to go back and practice some more to increase my speed.
  • Read It and Lacrimate — Tired of reading jargon-filled press releases, Gene Weingarten of the Washington Post decided to ask the PR folks some similarly worded questions to see if they understood them:

    Me: Vis-a-vis the implementation of SAP technology, what is the source-related derivation of the acronymically based identifier of the service entity, and how does it operate so as to enhance production and profitability or, alternatively, improve the business model of the shelf-stable protein supplier of which Clarkston is now a client?

    He was surprised at the results.
