2018-01-01(01Mo) New life

[22:00] So many times at the breakthrough of the year I've heard a phrase: "New Year -- new life".

Day was slow. The party dissolved around 0330CET, and we've slept up to 1300CET.I had terrible hangover. We've rested, had leftovers or dinner, then we went home. Eve needed to prepare to school, we needed to wash ourselves and tidy up our place.Nothing to report.

2018-01-02(01Tu) Fresh start

[19:20] I've waken up early, noticed, that it is a free day and went to sleep again, crawled from my bed first, when it was necessary to send Eve to the school -- and we decided, she'll go on her own -- although Elmyra said, I should go and spy on her, whether she does it right. I was reluctant, because we need to build trust between us, but eventually did as she said, unfortunately, she was right: little one was investigating each and every pond on her way, I needed to push her a bit. Beside that -- everything all right.
The car workshop was closed today, I'll give it a try Tomorrow. Instead, I've tidied up my drawer with various small gadgets, combining it with a bag of electro-trash acquired from The Roommates. Some pairs of headphones and mobile headsets in working condition, together with two Bluetooth gizmos, one of which I was able to make work (worn-off tactile switch, replacement part is like two bucks per fifty pieces on AliExpress). I've also did all the ironing, because I was curious, how is the Маринина book, I'm reading now, going to end -- yet, I've run out of laundry before I've run out of the book, so I still have like three chapters left, and the plot thickens...
I think, I might be riding my bicycle to work Tomorrow.

2018-01-03(01We) Soft start

[21:36] Ну чтож: сегодня утром я подвёз Эву в школу, за чем уехал на роботу. День удлинился, но был относительно продуктивным; даже если работа состояла в основном из ответа на просроченную электронную почту.
=> Advantages of my Wife being on compulsory vacation (the Institute is closed for whole week) is, that I can wander off after work not needing to pick up kid at school. So today I’ve allowed myself to entertain at the cinema with newest Star Wars release.
What can I say -- quality entertainment, but Polish translation is very bad, I needed to avoid looking on bottom of the screen to not catch up subtitles, sometimes it seemed, that these were quite another and totally different dialogues.
Przydała by się klawiatura z cyrylicą.

2018-01-04(01Th) Не повезло

[21:38] Про сегодняшний день я имел большие планы, но на планах и закончилось: где-то я не позвонил, там или занято, или нет термина, или »позвоните в понедельник, теперь не разбираюсь«... Гораздо лучше получилось Елмире в префектуре: Ей удалось достать удостоверение, которые необходимо для отмены договора страхования машины, которую сборщик лома взял ещё в начале декабря. Но всё остальное... Врать-ли в порядке. (detail not important only life important)

2018-01-05(01Fr) 宝血回

[22:02] So, some major rearrangements: Just by accident I needed to log-in to one of my mail accounts by WWW page, and I've been shoved a big and obvious banner up my face: is closing for business on March the first -- I was preparing to migration since some time, registered a domain et al, and now the time has come to just copy and redirect.
A bit more fuss will be with the cookbook, I need to manually edit and change all references to yield “”, might take some effort, not just copy files.
At the same time, my most liked eMail account is going to be closed, as the host decided to switch it off. This can be a problem, because (due to security and reliability of the service) I've connected that account with many vital services, like PayPal and school messaging hub.
=> Oil lense, “The Dune” like of: []

2018-01-06(01Sa) Wir sind umgezogen nach UGU

[23:00] Today I moved my authors portal away from Onet servers. Will see, how long this will work, before another crash. I've also reinstalled Ubuntu, although my settings are gone, same as some application data -- what hurts me most is the screen notepad, but I just need to figure out how to restore it, I have full backup of /home directory.

2018-01-07(01Su) Tidy up

[21:09] Sweeping clean after system upgrade was a bit more troublesome, than just copy and paste -- some of the applications were removed from distribution. I didn't touch yet all those requiring heavy source code tweaking before compilation, just basic working environment for sound and video processing, like AviDemux, so handy for just trimming lengthy recording without re-encoding.
We've totally missed on Friday, that it is a holiday on Saturday and every shop is closed -- so we needed to hunt for some groceries today.
=> Quick ride to buy something for dinner and tube of glue grew up to several hours of mindless dwelling around shopping mall.
=> FLTK developer kit installed. Fluid Tracker installed. XSoundtracler failed to resolve dependencies -- I need to manually edit source code to refer to more modern packages (gtk+-2.0 et al).

2018-01-08(02Mo) My mistake

[21:22] So, they said at the workshop to come on the eighth -- but February the eighth... I need my ride fixed before that. So, tomorrow it is definitely a bicycle trip to work, as I'm leaving the car at garage fist thing in the morning.
=> Tomorrow there is parent-teacher conference at Eve's school.
look, what I've found: []

2018-01-09(02Tu) Agenda Cycling Forth

[20:12] So, I've dropped Eve at school, then the car at the workshop, mounted my two-wheel demon and attempted to beat my life records -- with miserable result: trip time over one hour. Day at work was busy but satisfying. Meeting with the teacher also very positive. The car was repaired today evening, but I don't have any cash at home, so it needs to wait.

2018-01-10(02We) Sławku, a gdzie jest właściwie Judasz?

[21:56] It was a tad warmer (or better said: less freezing) this morning. I've ridden my bike to work, and my stats were again a bit lousy. I need to do something with my running nose.
After work I've picked up my car, repair was costly, but still within budget. Battery in remote key is flat.
=> When I was ridding through the forest, taking detour to other town, to attend an ATM to withdraw cash without additional fees, I've got an idea, how to implement easy way to enter Cyrillic letters in VIm: use mappings, but not phonetic or character shape based, but keyboard layout based. Switch key will be as usual the ` (back quote) character. Should be fun. Speaking of VIm -- note to oneself, that :set encoding= is not the same as :set fileencoding=, and all sorts of funny behaviour can root of that.
=> And yes (for those, who didn't comprehend with the title) I've watched G.F.Darwin's God vs. Satan, and I liked it.

2018-01-11(02Th) no more

[21:27] Bicycle statistics today even worse than yesterday, but this time it felt good and I didn't run out of stamina. I've been experiencing, however, terrible challenges with concentration and focus, both at work and at home.
On my way back I've caught flat tyre -- or better said, the tube almost exploded. When I was replacing punctured tube, I've noticed, that rim of rear wheel is totally sanded down, up to the point, where it starts to fall apart. No riding tomorrow, it seems, until I totally refurbish my bike.
=> Zero-width pattern matching explained: []

2018-01-12(02Fr) ?

[23:00] I dared not to ride my bike to work, as the rear rim could break just any moment. Little Eve had last day at school before Winter vacations.

2018-01-13(02Sa) Home alone

[22:00] Мы проснулись поздно, но нам никуда не спешилось. После завтрака мои девочки уехали в Город за покупками, а я пошёл в соседний городок исправить причёску. В парикмахерской не было очереди, поэтому я справился с этом немедленно, и скоро вернулся домой, где занялся стиркой. В это время я »читал« Маринину (том Чужая маска).
Элмыра и Эва вернулись в половину восьмого вечера, неся тяжёлые сумки. Моя Жена сказала, что наша дочь вела себя очень прилично.
=> Yes, I've applied that Cyrillic stickers to my laptop keyboard. Writing Russian became much easier. I've also modified the compose/substitution maps, so I can put single words or short sentences without switching to another keyboard layout. Funny thing: my Ubuntu distribution seems to not have a Windows-style Russian keyboard, where period and comma are on the key between Ю and right shift. I need to get used to 'typewriter style' layout where period is [shift]+[7] and comma [shift]+[6].

2018-01-14(02Su) Winter vacation

[18:38] We've slept in late, then did nothing. Resting and entertaining ourselves.

2018-01-15(03Mo) 365 Challenge!

[22:00] I hereby attempt to write min. 700 words (3kB) of story every day, taking max. 14 vacation days, until January the fifteenth 2019. I’m also going serious with re-learning Russian. This is to fight permanent prescience of fail. I can’t stand it.

2018-01-16(03Tu) Słabo chociaż bywa lepiej

[23:00] It was snowing whole day. Seven hundred words revealed to be quite a limit, not so easy to write, when everyone interrupts. Strange thing: just exactly, when I invent a passage to a story, my Wife finds it amusing to start conversation.

2018-01-17(03We) Adapt Adopt Improve

[23:13] It is third day and already corrective action needed in my Project365: I need to set rigid time frame, when I will be not disturbed. Managing distractions was easy, more difficult to handle is, that my circadian intellectual peak falls exactly in the same time of the day, when Elmyra is eager to socialize. I also think, that once a week I need a day, when I will be not doing writing, but only proof-reading, editing and putting down concept.
=> When I returned home after work, we all went to neighbouring town to file a complaint in shoe shop. There was much traffic, we were about to come home late, so this was opportunity to eat out.
=> Marks and Spencer internet warehouse is shipping only to the countries, where they have stationary shops. This is stupid. And eBay resellers do not have everything from the catalogue...

2018-01-18(03Th) Not so great, but she'll be better

[20:20] Today morning I've allowed myself to sleep-in (yes, whole twenty minutes), but even though, I was all distracted: I've taken a box with waste paper to dispose it, but then forgot it on the parking lot. Pizza lunch at work. Noodles with spinach for dinner. We've restored Elmyra's old skates, and they it Eve just fine -- This year she wants to learn to skate.
=> One of Elmyra's parcel's from AliExpress has been stolen at the post office: it is marked in the system as "delivered" while we were out of town at that day.

2018-01-19(03Fr) Dunno

[22:27] The sow in the morning was not so bad -- I've left home early enough to drive before the traffic jams. One of my co-workers was hit by manoeuvring truck at the parking lot at our office: one window broken.
=> No idea for dinner.
We packed little Eve for a ride to the grandmother.

2018-01-20(03Sa) Hin

[23:20] We've argued over departure time, but managed to get there in one piece. Not so much traffic. We've met at my Grandmother's place to celebrate the Grandmother's and Grandfather's Day, then my brother in law and I fixed my Mother's car and we all moved to my Mother's place. Board games and gossip exchange through the evening.

2018-01-21(03Su) Zurück

[21:30] We've waken up early, but were slow to prepare. Some mischief with setting correct appointment time -- I wanted to visit the other grandmother, and wanted to go there together with my sister, but at the same time Elmyra wanted to be home early -- all in all, it seems I've dragged my sister out of bed two hours earlier, than she would like to. The other celebration also ended in success. On our way home we have had one of that serious conversations, and just before we arrived home, we've dropped with a visit to the Roommates in their new home. They were positively surprised to see us.
Now, TV evening, we shall have some proper sleep.

2018-01-22(04Mo) How to dropbox?

[20:30] Я приехал в бюро слишком рано, вспомнил, что у меня нет ключи, но дверь была уже открыто.
После роботы, по дороге домой, я остановился ненадолго в магазине.
Элмыра сегодня в гораздо лучшем настроении, чем за последние три дня.

2018-01-23(04Tu) Request for transport

[20:30] Утром я не с разу поехал в бюро, перед том я повёз Элмыру на роботу, поэтому что ей нужно было нести с собой восемнадцать бутылок минеральной воды.
Очень приличный день, почти всё получилось.

2018-01-24(04We) Dark clouds

[22:00] So, things are to be awkward: While at work I'm on track, then at home I'm facing some unpredictable circumstances. For example: I need to move from the basement a bit sooner, than I'd like to, and I couldn't buy a bus ticket online to bring back Eve from my Mother's place. I wonder, how to tackle with that.

2018-01-25(04Th) Square cleared

[20:05] I've slept well this night, which resulted in very nice day at work. Today also there were no problems with online purchase of bus tickets. After my shift I've dropped with a visit to the mall and bought some furniture for our basement, I've also ordered dinner to take away, so when I came home we just have eaten and got again at moving our stuff from one basement to another. We planned to work only a bit, but in the end moved ALL the stuff -- tomorrow we'll assembly the additional shelves and tidy-up and order, removing all the redundant, obsolete and useless stuff. But that all in the afternoon, before that I need to attend one city-hall office and one uncle... Detail not important.


[23:59] My day started badly, I have had headache, kept forgetting about everything, but even if in pains, I've accomplished, what was planned. Both visits were rather fruitful, I've also finished clearing the basement, did some small repairs, checked on corporate mail (and found out, the thing I waited for, did not arrive yet) et all. And I've managed to have some sleep before my night ride. Speaking of which: I've left home just in time: when I've arrived at bus stop and bought a ticket in vending kiosk, the bus only arrived, so no waiting. When I was waiting for a change from commuter shuttle to cruise bus, I was reading a book.

2018-01-27(04Sa) Quiet criuse

[22:00] I've had comfortable seat, used some sleep -- although I was very curious, how does the book end. The bus was some minutes late, but I have had more than hour waiting time to another change. At least this time I was prepared and had with me some coins for the automated toilet. I've arrived at my Mother's home just a bit after 0730CET. Just in time to have some sleep. I've waken just in time for breakfast. Day was slow, we've made some deep-fried pastry, pumpkin bread, spinach and cheese filled poultry rolls for dinner. I've been writing again: I've used BT keyboard and VimTouch for android. Rather crude setup, but it worked.

2018-01-28(04Su) All the way back

[22:00] Everything according to the plan: we've waken up early enough to prepare without unnecessary rush, have had healthy and copious breakfast and packed our trunks: Eve's, mine and my Niece's, together with all the goodies my Mother intended to give to my grandmother. The car worked (none of this flat battery rubbish we had last time) and we were at bus station on time. Not so many people onboard, I thought, there will be a surge of kids returning to the City from winter vacation -- but no: even less passengers, than on my ride the other way on Friday night. Not much waiting for the commuter bus, when we arrived. Some unpleasant situation, when ticket controllers caught one Ukraïnian with (oh really?) not valid ticket. I believe, they bent law a bit.
Elmyra was happy to see us, but she run out of happiness pretty quickly. We all went to be early.

2018-01-29(05Mo) First day

[22:30] Eve has waken up early and prepared herself quickly, so there was some spare time in the morning. Day at work quite good. Steamed vegetables and meat rolls for dinner.

2018-01-30(05Tu) All the way

[22:30] Quite good turnaround time in the morning. Strong wind. Quite good day at work. In the afternoon my girls were preparing costume for schools party, while I've written a chunk of story, weighting over three thousand words.

2018-01-31(05We) que

[21:40] I was late at school, and didn't take any photos of Eve in her costume.

2018-02-01(05Th) Eternal Trial Period

[22:00] It was raining. Elmyra needed a lift to the station, because she was late again. I've driven the car to technical check-up (funny story with a light bulb). Quite bad mood at work. And one old workmate is with us again.
Improvised dinner, fried chicken with steamed vegetables. And I'm running out of my vitamin pills.

2018-02-02(05Fr) I hate you, RODO

[23:59] I’m running in circles, I need a drink. Today morning I've just forgot to stop at the school to let out Eve.
STAT24 is closing for business. UGU is injecting advertisement into google verification file.
Today's afternoon spent on shopping. Eat out. Early go to bed, as we have two invitations for Tomorrow.

2018-02-03(05Sa) Grand day out

[23:30] Today started ugly, but ended well. I've couldn't sleep in the night, I've crawled from my bed too early. We have had nice breakfast, but Elmyra didn't sleep well too, and we were like two landmines in tumble drier... We went with our friend to the swimming pool, where it was her to ignite first. Some serious talk on our way back, then rather nice afternoon and evening at Roommates' home, quick visit with Eve at the tailors' (detail not important) and mindlessly silly feature film or the end of the day. Serious talk was continued, when we were back at home. Now with some results.

2018-02-04(05Su) Chill out

[21:05] My sleep was quite short, but I've fully regenerated. We did have just quiet internal day, spent on trivial activities. I've attacked pile of laundry with iron, and defeated it flawlessly. Elmyra also did some of the ever-postponed chores. Eve's friend dropped with a visit and then they went to play outside (there was some misunderstanding as to which comes first: the sunset or 1730CET, but we've resolved it).

2018-02-05(06Mo) Uphill and against wind

[22:31] I couldn't sleep in the night again. And this couldn't have been made any useful, because Company network was down (not all services, though). Eve has woken up nicely and without complaints, there was not much traffic. At the office, it revealed, that the production system I was trying to enter on weekend, was down also for internal access up to about 1000CET.
Eve misbehaved a bit at school.
I expected tough times sending Elmyra to the psychology workshops, but she agreed anyway. Unfortunately, the event took too long.

2018-02-06(06Tu) Sat, 21 Mesha 217, middle of Martian summer

[21:14] Эва сердилась на меня сегодня утром, поэтому, что я запретил ей брать планшет на школьную экскурсию. Но на конец мы как-то согласились.
На роботе без аварии. После роботы прогулка в магазин. Обед из микроволновой печи.

2018-02-07(06We) Falcon heavy

[20:48] Глупые журналисты, копируют ложь и бред друг от друга: Фалкон-Хэви это самая большая ракета, но только из ракет серии Фалкон, произведенных в компании Элона Муска. Самая большая ракета на всей земле, это всё ещё Сатурн V: Рекорд по самой большой взлетной массе и самому большому доставленному на орбиту грузу не был ещё избит.
Утром Эва так злилась на меня, почти не поплакалась. Всё из того, что она хотела есть что-то другое в школе, чем бутерброды с паштетом -- но потом, когда мы встречали после роботы, она согласилась, что они были очень вкусные.
»Пашковианку« будут снова проектировать, восьмой раз.

2018-02-08(06Th) Mięsopust

[21:23] Элмыра остановила свой сотовый телефон дома, но думала, что его потеряла.
На работе собрание затянулось, и я почти пропустил бесплатные пончики -- жалко было бы, поэтому, что были превосходные.
Вечером мы только поели и поленились.

2018-02-09(06Fr) Winter games

[21:33] Ну ладно: сегодня начались зимние олимпийские игры, я пропустил церемонию начала; при том грустно замечаю, что это событие не вызывает таких эмоций, как раньше.
=> Quiet day at work, Tortilla wraps for dinner. I've written another thousand words of story.

2018-02-10(06Sa) Strange thoughts

[21:00] Day wasted in shopping mall.

2018-02-11(06Su) Oznaki wiosny

[22:00] leszczyna kwitnie choć jeszcze popielca nie było.

[22:11] nothing to report. Our cat scratched Elmyra painully at the moment, when she wanted to have a witty reply, so now she is all mad at me.

2018-02-13(07Tu) Мешал спать ночью

[22:17] Сегодня Эва приготовилась в школу слишком быстро, но я не смог добраться в бюро раньше, чем обычно, из-за пробок.
Серьёзные разговоры ночью -- но самые важные, даже не были бесполезны и дали эффект. detail not important, only life important

2018-02-14(07We) Howto

[22:00] I think, I've lost somewhere that BT headset, I've salvaged from trash. Easy come easy go.
Eve had quite nice day today.
We've went to bed pretty early.

2018-02-15(07Th) Nie żyje wielki polski reżyser

2018-02-17(07Sa) Zajęcia w podgrupach

[23:24] Not all went as planned. I've tidied the house, while girls were with a visit, but didn't finish all planned tasks. I've cleaned mold growing inside the Танк, dusted and washed floors, did the laundry -- yet I didn't finish that thing for work.

2018-02-18(07Su) Not quite lazy

[22:00] Because yesterday prolonged beyond schedule, I needed to do the grocery shopping today. I've been to the meeting, I've cooked nice dinner (and tomorrow's dinner too), then Eve was preparing to the math test -- or at least that was the plan, but she did everything else, so we didn't let her go until heap of exemplary tests was reduced to zero.

2018-02-19(08Mo) [empty]

[21:18] Trying out new scripts. Lentil soup for dinner.

2018-02-20(08Tu) [empty]

[21:18] Elmyra was slow to prepare in the morning and needed a lift to the station. In the afternoon, I've learned, that Eve did excellent on the math test on Monday.

2018-02-21(08We) Forgot

[22:30] Quite good morning, slow day at work, meeting at the church... Nothing to report.

2018-02-22(08Th) All bad things

[21:21] The Танк is gone, taken by scrap mongers. Some funny stories with that (I was caught inside, when central lock got crazy, our neighbour forgot her purse et al). I needed to visit Eve's school, so I've got late to work, and then was late home -- Elmyra didn't like that, also that I've left unwashed dishes in the kitchen sink exactly today, when she was about to cook something tasty. But anyway: the dinner was delicious.
The Wildcat was in trouble -- hard disk in her laptop started to act funny, I've advised to backup all data and buy new one, before any crash.

2018-02-23(08Fr) Freeze!

[22:20] Я проснулся в четыре ночи и не мог заснуть; было холодно и Элмира храпела. Маленькая Эва медленно вставала, но быстро готовилась. Даже медленно шло сегодня всё на роботе. У Элмиры очень сильная мотивация к тренировке. Вкусный ужин, приготовленный всеми и съеденный всеми.

2018-02-24(08Sa) Grand day out

[22:49] Мы проснулись рано -- слишком рано. Весь день прошёл на поездке с одного торжественного центра в другой, с недолгом перерывом в покупке для встречи с Сестрой-Студенткой (и позднего обеда).

2018-02-25(08Su) Grand day in

[22:23] В отличе от вчерашнего дня, сегодня мы проснулись поздно, но (несмотря на незначительные детали) в отличном настроение. Потом Сестра-Студент послала мне на FB, что её скучно, потому что её подруга, с которой она собиралась встретится, позвонила, что не придёт, потому что у неё ужасное похмелье...

I've just tried my first inline PHP code, and it was not 'hello World' program, but HTML link generation using $_GET data.

2018-02-27(09Tu) Barely alive

[21:31] Air temperature in the morning was refreshing minus eighteen centigrade. I've helped neighbour to start his car. Today I kept forgetting everything, at least at work some things wet up to the plan. I've scratched the car (one of the skirting battens fell off).

2018-02-28(09We) Check spelling

[21:01] Minor quarrel in the morning, but Elmyra (unknowingly) hit my nerve, and it left me a bit distracted for the first half of the day.
I've experimented with PHP a bit, and started a major review of blog archive for 2017.
baked squash for dinner.

2018-03-01(09Th) Feel down

[22:01] Freezing cold again. TW64 band fixed itself after being left unused for a week: the corrupted data chunk was pushed away from queue, and now it works good as new.
I've tried to break insurance contract using online service, but interface was broken.

2018-03-02(09Fr) Od Annasza do Kajfasza

[21:00] Today I've taken day off to close-up all lagging official matters, at the bank, at the city hall, at the doctors' and in school. I didn't need to hurry (all the above listed open for business first at 0800CET), so I've let Eve sleep in. First to hit was the school, where I've signed one important agreement, then I've visited Department o Communication in County Hall, which went rather smooth, because there were not so many people in the queue. Then I went to yet another town nearby to pick-up a parcel, and from there I've travelled with train to the City to get it straight with the bank. While onboard, I've recorded the view through a window, to document, how is rail renovation progressing. (the bicycle camera has no viewfinder, so it revealed later my aim was not quite good). When I've returned home, I've ironed the laundry, because the pile was inducing depression on me -- another count for success, as only few pieces are left now. In the evening we've went to bed early.

2018-03-03(09Sa) money spending holiday

[23:15] I've waken up in the dead of the night, somewhere around 0430CET, with headache, which originated from sinuses. Unfortunately, I've also waken up Elmyra, she was of course not amused... I've taken some anti-inflammatory pills and found myself warm spot on living room sofa. Warming up and painkiller helped to have some proper sleep, so we all started the day shortly after 0800CET.
=> My girls went to shopping mall, while I took our cat to the vet, then washed floors, then took care of small repairs, and generally I was enjoying clearing the task list and seeing mostly positive results of my effort.
=> When it stared getting dark, I've went to a town nearby to shop for groceries, then after unloading, I've driven to the CIty to pick-up my girls. All exhausted but in excellent moods.

2018-03-04(09Su) Staying at home

[19:16] I was cold in the night, while Elmyra was totally reverse, we should switch blankets.
After breakfast I've called my family, one by one, attended with Eve the noon service at our church, after which we have had small stroll through our town's park, and then we've indulged in laziness.
=> I'm fighting with Facebook engine or creating WEB follow/like buttons, but with poor result. It went good for the CookBook, but not so well for the other page.

2018-03-05(10Mo) Thaw

[20:04] It is a tad warmer, clearly one can feel the spring. Today I've met with Eve's teacher,and learned some news -- little Eve needs a bit more tight control now.
I've experimented with custom search engine, and found out, my site is not indexed by Google.

2018-03-06(10Tu) Rain

[20:34] Little Eve becomes rather picky lately. Also, we keep being late with the morning routine. Very nice day at work. I've also washed the car.
=> DISQUS was down for several hours today.

2018-03-07(10We) Раз -- случае, дважды -- стечение обстоятельств... Но три...

[22:00] It was a good day today. Little Eve still has problems with adhering to the rules at school, but it tends to be better. I'm trying various method of automated video concatenation, nothing seems to work for me. Tomorrow I maybe upload something to YouTube.

2018-03-08(10Th) Dies Patronem: Beata

[22:03] Хороший день: бесплатная пицца на обед, только небольшое движение на дорогах, но и сегодня я наконец отремонтировал велосипед, в котором обод заднего колеса сломался ещё в январе.

2018-03-09(10Fr) Corporate idiots

[21:09] Orange Poland has the worst customer service ever. Their online service is plain stupid, registration process is dumb, moreover: I don't know why but spaces are not allowed in passwords -- this makes easier to compose rainbow tables for attack.
=> Fancy dinner out of leftovers with potatoes.

2018-03-10(10Sa) Time spent together

[21:40] We have had healthy breakfast, we went shopping, we've visited our ISP to learn something about our ADSL line and how to tweak the contract (unfortunately, we couldn't finalize, because they run out of promotional modems). We've also have had lunch out.
=> In the afternoon I've mounted the Україна and took Eve for a ride: we wanted to go the path along the ails to the other town, but the ground was all wet and too soft to ride there. Not with this bicycle, not with road tyres, not with Eve on the back rack. We've returned just at the beginning of the terrain part, and instead we've headed to our town's park. Eve was socializing with other kids, while I tried, how does the Dropbox support in VimTouch work -- written some 300+ words of short story (or better said: episode). Replication and offline editing went just fine. Cold buffet for dinner.

2018-03-11(10Su) Ill

[21:41] Day stared nicely, but it quickly got sour: bot my girls were suffering some gastric problems. I was at church with Eve, then I let her play outside. Indian style chickpea soup for dinner. And then a terrible headache hit me.
