I call this photo album... Doves Disappointed that There is No Food on the Windowsill.

Context: I hadn't put more food out on the sill and then yesterday, when I went to clean out the bird feeders, I noticed that between moisture and age there was a nice thick layer of, basically, mulch in the bottom of both feeders in which a nice crop of seedlings was growing, and they were kinda gross so we're tossing those feeders and going out to get new ones tonight. (You can see the lack of feeders in the latter photos.)

And while I'm on Metafilter...sleary got linked to by MeFi! Her post is How publishers could get more of my money (and make me happy to give it.

And now to close this browser window and get back to banging my head against an annoyingly large tangle of if...then statements for building a link from a database recordset that I need to translate to a new layout.

And on a happier note, after seeing Mad Max: Fury Road I read the only two bad reviews of it on Rotten Tomatoes, and they both essentially said: too much action, not enough plot.

Ahem. DID YOU NOT UNDERSTAND WHAT MOVIE YOU WERE GOING TO SEE?

I finally figured out what the problem with HTML charsets that I had been having--and had been having off and on for ten bloody years at this job...

My TEXT EDITOR was automatically coding the files I was writing in ANSI and not UTF-8. So, I presume, any HTML it produced was going up as ANSI, and while the charset declaration was UTF-8, and bad things happened to special characters.

In conclusion: HTML charsets can still bite Mello's fabulous ass. And so can smart quotes.

We are seeing this in 3.5 hours.



CANNOT WAIT.

(And on the way home, we'll probably be checking the site to see what that one bad review said about it! Haven't yet, as I'm trying to remain unspoiled. :D)

NO FUCKS GIVEN.



Iv'e now got THREE series of 6 photos of this mourning dove eating on the windowsill as Sora lurks on the other side of the window, presumably frustrated that he can't get himself a tasty dove snack. It even seems to look Sora up and down and then goes back to eating seed!
