I used to read 12. That was too much work for me. I'm down to three now. It's a much better situation.

I regularly read... 4 web comics, and I occasionally check up on 2 'semi dead' ones in the rare case that the artists drew a new one. They are on hiatus.

xkcd, dinosaurcomics, chainsawsuit, octopus pie, hark! a vagrant, Sam and Fuzzy, asofterworld, pictures for sad children, SMBC, Order of the Stick, Lackadaisycats, Darths and Droids, abstruse goose, Amazing Super Powers. And then I'm aware of several others that are not as cool as them I listed. Or maybe there are but I temporarily forgot them.

Current residents of my "Comics" RSS folder:

Darths & Droids
Dinosaur Comics
Doctor Cat
garfield minus garfield
Order of the Stick
The Perry Bible Fellowship (Hey, I can dream)
pictures for sad children
Saturday Morning Breakfast Cereal
xkcd
xkcd Slightly Worse

Personally, I pretty much live in my RSS reader, for this sort of thing... if a site I follow doesn't have an RSS feed (which is pretty rare, these days) then I'll pull their site apart and make my own. Means I don't have to worry about update schedules, and I can hang on to things like PBF in the hope that one day they'll return.

Have you tried riding the Brompton long distances? Do you think riding that for fifty miles would be comfortable? I ride quite often and even with my proper road bike, and I am uncomfortable after fifty miles.


Road bikes are designed to go fast rather than be comfortable though. The upright position of the Brompton (and the Brooks saddle) is designed with comfort in mind. I don't trust those little tiny wheels though. They look like trouble.

There are long-term weather forecasts on more reliable sites, like Accuweather and such. That said, the long-range weather forecast for my wedding day, for a month beforehand, was 85 and sunny. Until the day before. Then it was 60 and rainy. It ended up being in the 60s, windy, and overcast. It didn't start raining until probably 2 in the morning, and everyone was done dancing.

I don't say this to freak you out. I say this to reassure you that everyone had a fantastic time anyway, even though it was a little chilly. I assembled a big basket of sweaters and shawls, just in case of ladies freezing in their sleeveless summer dresses, and it was fine. Everyone pretty much danced and kept warm, and even those who didn't didn't look uncomfortable. It was fun, and memorable, and you will be fine.

Up until now I had myself convinced that I didn't mind if we had to have the ceremony inside. But I'm definitely going to be disappointed if we can't have it on the beautiful lake like we had planned. I'm sure it'll still be great, but I'd be lying if I said I wouldn't be a little sad.

It is, however, the same as Alt-0171. Yeah.

Alt+numbers with no leading zero picks the appropriate character from the current DOS character set (Yes, you have a current DOS character set, even on versions of Windows that don't run over DOS). Alt+numbers with a leading zero picks the appropriate character from the current Windows character set. For US English, those are probably cp437 and cp1252, respectively. The Windows codepage is the one all the Windows APIs when passed char strings (as opposed to WCHAR strings, which are always Unicode, regardless of codepages... either UCS2 or UTF16, I forget), so (char)171 will be the same as Alt+0171 - for cp1252, left-pointing angle brackets. Whereas Alt+171, for cp437, is a 1/2 fraction. The 1/2 fraction is 189, in cp1252, so use (char)189 for that.

I'm sure the reason will trace back to Microsoft's almost religious devotion to backwards compatibility...

GTK+'s Ctrl+Shift+(U, hex numbers) for entering arbitrary Unicode is much nicer, anyway. Screw codepages and all that they stand for.
