Dear Log,

«On arrival in Karyes from the small port of Dahne you are obliged to qualify for a diamontition, a form of Byzantine visa that is written in Greek, dated to the Julian calendar, and signed by four of the secretaries of leading monasteries. This document enables the visitor to stay overnight at any one of the monasteries.»

Dickens

Credit where it's due, eventually.

Dear Log,

I think it's mildly interesting that Comedy Central cancelled Strangers With Candy and even stopped airing it in reruns; but then once Stephen Colbert went and totally burned President Stifler, suddenly Strangers With Candy is a big deal, and the new movie based on it went from being basically unreleasable, to having Comedy Central do a big PR push for it and for the new series DVD box set.

Ahwell, better late than never.

Dear Log,

Supergreat new version of Long_Word_Breaker.

Superstar Kyosuke Takayama emailed me a patch to make it use the little-known wbr element Before that, this GM script inserted microspaces instead, which was slow and problematic.
