1:59 am

we had over 300 cars and trucks stranded on the highway in about a 20K stretch starting just out of town east of me...
1:59 am
Nancy Boy

No, Carlee? Sorry, I've been living in kind of a bubble. Not too much damage I hope? :(

once things cleared they could not believe there were no crashes..all these cars came to a stop..and then as the blowiing setting were mere metres from jack knifed transports or other cars...for all they knew they were completely alone
2:04 am
Soodlebum

Its a clear morning here - should be good for the Winter Solstice at Newgrange.
2:04 am

I'm still hoping the clouds will move aside and I'll get to see the orange.

same jilli...going out to look again...wrong angle with my house..almost directly over head..i have to go outside to see
2:06 am
jillibus

I have to go outside too, carlee, and it's chilly
2:06 am
Nancy Boy

can't see out the window anymore, hurts. for all I know the sky has burst into flames out there ;)
2:07 am
jillibus

not likely, NB!
2:08 am
jillibus

Is the window all covered in snow, NB?
2:09 am
Nancy Boy

it's just too high; I can't pull myself up to see it. annoying!

2:11 am

2:11 am

jmcnrick, weren't you awfully cold?
2:12 am
jillibus

2:12 am
Nancy Boy

I've had better days. But okay I guess, thank you...

2:13 am
m9f9l

not seeing orange in the webcast..
2:13 am
carleekat

nothing out there but white fluffy clouds...cant even generally pinpoint where the moon might be in the sky to look except i did see it earlier this evening
2:14 am
carleekat

i am seeing orange in the one i have m9
2:14 am
jmcnrick

is the orange a short term thing?
2:14 am
diem

guess will have to wait till 2092 still overcast here(thin) but no red
2:14 am
lynxxx

why is there an orange moon? is that a snow thing?
2:14 am
jillibus

white fluffy clouds? Here it's dark dark dark.
2:14 am
jmcnrick

no it is a total eclipse here lynxxx
2:15 am
lynxxx

oooh! lol
2:15 am
jmcnrick

i thought the next one was 2014
2:15 am
jillibus

lyn, read my profile -- it's a very special eclipse.
2:15 am
jmcnrick

2092 is the next one at the solstice i think
2:16 am
jillibus

jmc, the orange is because of refraction of light from the sun, I think.
2:16 am
carleekat

the orange for most of totality
2:16 am
jmcnrick

but is the orange a flash like at sunset?
2:16 am
jmcnrick

oh well then i would call it brown or rusty not so much orange
2:16 am
jillibus

no, it stays for a while, they say.
2:16 am
lynxxx

Interesting Jilli, apparently we are having an eclipse too here - but yours sounds very pretty
2:17 am
jillibus

It can range from orange to chocolate.
2:17 am
jmcnrick

a lunar eclipse lynxxx? i assume partial from that angle but maybe not
2:17 am
jillibus

lyn, right now ours is invisible -- too cloudy :-(
2:17 am
Nancy Boy

that's why I didn't say...didn't want anyone to worry. recovery isn't really the name of the game, but I think (hope) the worst is over.
2:18 am
jillibus

Sure hope so, NB.
2:18 am
jmcnrick

not knowing what was up was the most worrying NB
2:19 am
jmcnrick

*wishes jilli's clouds away*
2:19 am
carleekat

there are lot of people who care... and us worrying is simply an expressionof that... not knowing was worse..then knowing....as your fears always turn molehills to mountains
2:19 am
lynxxx

Yes, total, supposed to turn blood red - I'll let you know in a couple of hours...but the sun is still up here and a bit cloudy so not sure what we will see
2:20 am

2:52 am

Yes, I got those too and could hardly believe my eyes!

jmc, that's better than "astrologies" being first words...
2:53 am

the moon is finally coming out again-- i was surprised is was dark for so long! over an hour
2:53 am

in 8, 9 are related to the 10, 11

2:58 am

wish my camera had a better lens-- the moon is framed by the television tower now
2:59 am
jillibus

Well, at least I got to see a lot of it before it went black.
2:59 am
jmcnrick

ah well i guess it being on a solstice doent seem that important to me
2:59 am
jmcnrick

so is it black because of clouds?
3:00 am
jillibus

I think so -- the glimpses I got before were when the clouds thinned out just a little bit in a small patch.
3:00 am
jmcnrick

well i am off to sleep -- it is my sisters birthday and i need to be awake when i fete her tonight

good. thought i would share a fab deal with you guys:
if any of you are familiar with restaurant.com, you can buy gift certificates for your local restaurants at a fraction of the face value. (we go there all the time for places we dine at regularly)
well, right now, if you enter the promo code "HOLIDAY" at checkout, you save 80% off your entire purchase!
so a $50 gift cert would normally be priced at just $20 on the site, but with the promo code, would only cost you $4!

youre welcome Mom.
i also posted a message that didnt show up:

be sure to check out Ebates first (and go to restaurant.com through that site) as you will get an extra 15% cash back on your purchase!

you should go to ebates.com before doing any online shopping, as the majority of major retailers will offer a percentage of cash back. usually 3%-6%, but it adds up!

Last night at the flip I got about three quarters of the way through. The thing is, right now my word list only lets me see about three hundred of them, so I have no idea what my t's and v's are. Is there a way around that?
12:10 pm
jmcnrick

wassail is just hot spiced apple cider
12:10 pm
Boobear

hi dmf
12:10 pm
jmcnrick

i put it in my crock pot and add what spices are handy
12:11 pm
jmcnrick

you can add wine (i prefer a dry white wine) if you want it to be alcoholic
12:11 pm
dfmchfhf

I'm not sure whether this would be a way around it... I just go to http://www.playbabble.com/action/get_w
ord_list?puzzleid=2828 for a word list. (It's a JSON array object, but it's pretty readable.)
12:12 pm

i have an orange studded with cloves and apples with brownsugar baking to put in with the hot cider and brandy with cinnamon and ginger slices

no, Dvorak needs to be tweaked for every language...
12:39 pm
jan

Interesting. Does it really make typing faster?
12:40 pm
dfmchfhf

De(d)vorak [the German version] for example tucks the Y away, and the J is easily accessible, whereas in English the Y is easily accessible and the J less so.
12:41 pm

12:44 pm

Peri, dfm accidentally switched his keyboard default which made him type something in gibberish.
12:44 pm
rubyfoo

the worst is typing English on a French keyboard. Q's and a's are reversed, r's are in the wrong place. It's a nightmare if you're a touch typist
12:44 pm

Dvorak is MUCH more finger friendly
12:44 pm

they are talking about different configurations of the standard keyboard

hey dc, wondering how fast you are at typing Dvorak and QWERTY? (hehe, I switched to QWERTY to type "QWERTY" >.>)
12:56 pm
dcseain

i can do about 86 wpm on Dvorak, vas 36 on QWERTY
12:56 pm
dcseain

i make MANY more errors with QWERTY
12:56 pm
dcseain

and have trouble keeping E and I straight on QWERTY
12:57 pm
dcseain

i really hate QWERTY
12:57 pm
hurshy

well QWERTY was originally designed to slow people down, so...
12:58 pm
dcseain

one thing i found when i switched was that the right hand does almost nothing with qwerty. (i space left-handed)
12:59 pm
Kazzer99

i can type really fast on qwerty - about 120 words on a word processor
12:59 pm
dfmchfhf

I practically type entirely LH on QWERTY.
12:59 pm
Kazzer99

i had to learn for a civil service typing test
12:59 pm
Kazzer99

touch typing is much easier on qwerty
1:00 pm
hurshy

original typewriters were wimpy and secretaries got too fast for them and broke them so they tried to slow them down by making qwerty. of course then people got used to that too, but by then the machines had become less wimpy so it was ok.
1:00 pm
dfmchfhf

I can type really quickly, but I make *so* many mistakes... when I'm actually typing, the backspace accounts for about 15% of my total keystrokes.
1:01 pm

they made us learn touch-typing with qwerty on old Royal manuals without letters on the keys. It gave me a way to work my way through university
