When I first started use.perling, I ordered my slashboxes on the opening page with "Recent Journals" near the top. Then something happened, the slashbox order changed, and for a while, I couldn't re-order them. But it worked again when I tried it a couple of days ago (thanks, pudge), so I put "Recent Journals" back near the top.
Well, I'd gotten used to the old (unchanging) position, and now after I bring up the front page, I scroll down and wonder where the recent journals box went....
Reminds me of something strange that happened to me a few years ago. Before Unix, I was using VMS and TOPS-10 (among a few others). With those DEC operating systems, you could abbreviate commands, and the command to look at a file's contents was
TYPE, which you could abbreviate to
TY. When I first switched over to Unix, I set up an alias so
ty would run
less didn't exist then...). The habit got ingrained, and I've kept that alias all these years.
The strange incident happened when I had to do something on VMS a few years ago. I was staring at the keyboard trying to remember how to look at a file's contents.... I had grown to associate
ty with Unix, and had forgotten its original source....
