11:34 pm - Wednesday comes again
The self-proclaimed world's best lime and calcium remover may be worthy of the boast. Used it on the tub this morning and a decade's worth of TO buildup has vanished. Though not from everywhere- there are rivulet marks where I didn't manage to scrub it all off.

There's a - available on the keypad here, but the ' màrk requires a different screen. You'd think the latter would be in more demand than the former.

So there are keypads available from Amazon, but the ones in Canada are double the ones in the US. Like, the dollar isn't that low, guys. But ordering from the States will assuredly get me hit with customs and paperwork fees so shou ga nai.

And until then, no Reading Wednesday. Have only finished a Brust or two anyway. But I seem to recall a scene of Vlad getting jumped once and calling on Varra, and that was the beginning of his misery. But I'm up to Tiassa, again, ie where I started reading last December, and haven't come across it anywhere. Maybe it was just a mention in passing?

(Oh, *there's* the angle brackets. Three taps away and not worth the effort. But still, good to know.)

That's a nuisance, about price and customs and so on. Maybe some travelling friend can haul it over the border when they next come by?

Pah for the unhandy angle brackets - and some fellow-feeling: the keyboard on this Macbook Air (which I don't recommend, except for its lightness) needs four fingers simultaneously on four keys to take a screen-shot.

Alas, my American friends have lives or live on the left coast or are otherwise unavailable.

The angle brackets are on one screen, the slash sign on another, and it's all a serious pain. I couldn't even think how one does a screen-shot, but then, I've never had to, even on my desktop.
