in the bathroom of my place there's a new yorker, along with a progressive and such items.
the new yorker, it seems, has finally put its archives online for free,and that's how i've been wasting my morning. the next article is about how to cure procrastination.

well the survey center mines your data and it appears some new yorker stuff is still paywalled.

one of my roommates was able to recover some data from an old computer that had fallen onto a space heater, so i now have some of my old photos back.
it'll take me some time to go through documents and find what else i now have.

Some pix of the house I am renting as part of a co-op, 8 of us, 4 volvos, 1 cat. These are the "before" pix, when it was a barber shop.

Finally, decent internet again. It's been really slow at home lately, combined with this dinosaur of a laptop, so I haven't been able to blog much lately. Now I'll need another excuse.
Or, once all 8 of us here at my new place jump online, it could slow down again.

a baude: abood-abides

Sunday, June 29, 2014

the comments at the washington post aren't working for me tonight.
"Unable to retrieve Canvas config from the storage".
Baude has a post on the recent noel canning case.

I was going to comment something to the effect that Scalia's argument in Noel Canning is backwards from what he argued dissenting in McIntyre v Ohio. In McIntyre, he argued for a living constitution, where rights expire if not used by the best-by date. This is the opposite of what he is usually known for.

Criminal conversation, like the Holy Roman Empire, is neither. 
- Eugene Volokh, writing about a north carolina decision finding adultery statute unconstitutional. That reminds of me of when Earl Grey was lord privy seal, "not a lord, not a privy, and not a seal."

some of the links in this post have expired so this is a note to self to redo it.
that was my post collecting versions of "the tide is high" which i first knew as a blondie song.
as i creep toward 100,000 hits i might pull out a few of my favorite posts from the past ten years of doing this pointless unpopular blog, which i keep doing just for myself. currently at about 99,500. what it lacks in audience it makes up in stability - i've had blogs that got 200,000 hits a month but vanished in a few months,
but blogger keeps working.
