Bit late, but ...

Yesterday, in a sudden fit of enthusiasm, I planted some daffodil bulbs.

Yes, I know, it's rather late, and there's no way they'll do much this year, but who knows, next year they might.

How many? Oh, I didn't actually count. 25 kg of bulbs in an almost continuous layer.

(They'd been sitting around waiting for my tuit for way too long. In the end, it didn't take very long.)


Oh, that's cool!

The standard text entry box in this here Java seems to understand Arabic somewhat better than the underlying OS (Windows XP) does. It's actually going a character left when I press the left arrow key.

(Oh, but it fails when I do Ctrl+Left and Ctrl+Right, jumping words right and left respectively. What a shame.)
