- Slept in until 7:30, which made the cats frantic for their breakfast and me extra-gronky.
- Spent 45 minutes trying to import my Firefox passwords into KeePass, with absolutely no success with export plugins, import plugins etc. Feh
In theory, it shouldn't be this hard. I have all these handy passwords saved in my local Firefox, and it should be a snap to import them, right? But the formatting just won't work for some reason. If I'm having this much trouble -- and I'm good about reading instructions and being intuitive in general -- I'm surprised anyone EVER got it working.
- Compulsive Hoarding Affects up to 2% of the Population - WSJ.com ow.ly/wRTZ
I should hope that the 2% of which they speak are actually the hoarders themselves, because it also affects family, friends, and neighbors, not to mention municipal authorities. I'd say that it's "a disease of plenty" but really it's possible to be a homeless hoarder, you just have less space to fill, like a shopping cart....
- Iconic Photos ow.ly/wTJN -- blog presenting entries of historic/iconic photos from through history. Totally amazing.
And not America-centric, either, with a good wide-ranging selection throughout the history of photography. I spent way WAY too much time yesterday going through it slowly.
- Caught Dirty Jobs tonight-- they went to a camel farm! In addition to a pony, I now want a dromedary. I would accept an alpaca instead....
Yes, it's a camel dairy, how cool is that? My ambition to try camel's milk is unslaken, but closer to a reality. (I'm allergic to cows milk, and goat milk doesn't do too well either, but I'm hopeful that camels milk doesn't have the same proteins I'm reactive to.) However, milking a camel is a difficult process, because they only let down for about 90 seconds, and they have to have their calf right by their side to start the hormones flowing.
But it was so cute, because the camel owners are professional animal trainers who have hand-raised their camels to be ultra-affectionate and kind of cuddly, so really Mike had a fun time of it.
Also, they'd named one of their camels "Clyde" which made me giggle. Nice to know they have an interest in novelty music.
