Stuff, things, more things...

Hi, everyone, Happy Merry!

Sorry for the lack of posts, been working all day, and playing far too much Spore.

I now have 15 new rose seedlings in the greenhouse, all open-pollinated. I'm beginning to despair for my deliberate crosses. Not a hint of activity from any of them, alas.

And started knitting socks. Realized at long last that the only way to get knee socks that will actually fit is to make my own, so...

Jotting down notes for Trail of the Great Rose part 3.

Other than that, not much is new.

Back to playing Spore!

TGR, Chapter 56

It just gets longer and longer.... hopefully it's staying interesting. There's an illustration but it's not finished.

I've been having a lot of problems with the Mac version of Naturally Speaking. It does not allow you to type in a word and say, "This is how it's pronounced." You are allowed to select a word from a text file and add it to the vocabulary -- and then guess how the program would pronounce it. So instead of Rumau being "Roo-Mao" she is now "Rum-aww" and hannu rhymes with ham instead of calm... and Yre... it still has no idea how to pronounce Yre (maybe I should have spelled it "Yirreh"). But it got Mignette and Aurrigne immediately. Go figure...
