Navigating into Cramped Spaces

One of the most delightful things about cats is watching them play with each other - right now they're swatting at each other around a table, one of them inside a table drawer, the other out in the open. This behaviour feels very real, and it's something I hope I haven't forgotten how to do. There are ways in which I find many of my friends irritating, and I'm sure I'm irritating in those ways to them too - some differences are frustrating, some are not.. but the urge to play is something that I think I've lost too much of. It'd be funny if aging involves a lot of pursuit of lost pieces of oneself - hopefully not. All the same, even when I'm irritated by friends, it's still usually nice being around them. For better or for worse, on some topics I'm frustratingly different than most people, and many of my friends are similarly different/difficult in some of these ways. The search for meaning opens new realms for disagreement...

I'm going to be moving dachte.org to a new system soon, as well as blog.dachte.org - for the very few of you with shell accounts on either, drop me a line. This does NOT apply to home.dachte.org, which is going to stay the same for the foreseeable future. I'm happy that dachte.org will have more disk and ram, and still be slightly cheaper than the old system - unlike cellphone plans, which tend to be replaced with worse plans as time goes on, Virtual Hosting tends to get better deals as time goes on, and there are two special incentives to upgrade (as the old virtual system is located in Houston and they're consolidating in Dallas). For the curious, I'm using RimuHosting. Blog.dachte.org is, as always, hosted in my office on a spare machine.

I've been having issues with depression and exceeding tiredness again, some of each seasonal, both likely tied. Geh.
