I use a laptop. :-)

Does anyone know why a Java application won't show image resources or load a specific file although the code and file directories seem completely correct?

I looked up this song last night to listen to, but then I fell asleep. The song kept playing in my head from the time I woke up and it still is! :blobcatgiggle:

It's a beautiful song, though! 🤗

#Microfiction #FirstDraft

I sat down on the couch, and opened up my book to the page my bookmark was on, page 115. I read, and some time passed. The bell in the old grandfather clock rang, marking the beginning of the next hour.

Then my cat Laura jumped on my belly, and I started petting her as I normally do.

Only Laura's been dead for two years...

I put my book down so I could see her, and there she was. She was all white, with pink around her eyes, just like I remembered her. She was purring from me petting her.

For a moment, I didn't understand what was happening. I thought I was dreaming, or I'd finally lost it. I shook my head and blinked, and then slapped myself across the face,

Laura twitched at the sound, tensed up, and put her ears back for a moment before relaxing again.

She was still there... purring, though getting a little bit bored now that I'd stopped petting her.

She must have heard a sound in the next room, my bedroom, or smelled something, because her head turned to look at my door... then she got off the couch and scampered over there.

She went in my room... and I sat there... on the couch, with my book on my chest, opened to page 201...

I got up, as quietly and slowly as possible, and put the book down on the couch.

I took my first step to the door of my room, down the hallway... and then the next... and the next... until I got to the door.

I looked inside the room. I couldn't
see Laura, so I started looking around... under the bed, in the closet, under the chair, under my dresser... but nothing.

She's gone... what was that...? I didn't know. Maybe I fell asleep for a moment and dreamed I saw Laura? Or maybe she really was there, I couldn't say for sure. I didn't remember falling asleep at all.

Dear Mastodon users, beware of spam!

Today I got email stating that my is about to expire, and there was a link to renew my password.

If you receive such emails, absolutely do not click their links. Mastodon passwords do not expire. The link will only take you somewhere where you can lose your Mastodon credentials to malicious users.

(This may be relevant to other fediverse software than Mastodon too, I don't really know what the spammers are sourcing now.)

You may be surprised to learn: we’ve found 80% of emails contain trackers (from 3rd parties like Google) that can detect when you’ve opened a message, where you were when you opened it, & the device you were using.

I am convinced that being on social media gives you a warped view of the world.

A lot of people mostly take to social media to complain. So you end up seeing most of the world's problems without as many of the good things.

So, just a reminder to seek out the positive too.

"If the dragon keeps pacing the tower like that, we'll end up with a second moat," the sorceress's apprentice remarked.

"Better pacing here than rampaging through towns trying to find the poacher that caused this," mumbled the sorceress, guiding hot vapors around a small gray fox; next would be bitter potions.

A nasty poison wracked it's convulsing body.

Even knowing the fox would recover, the dragon despaired over her needless suffering.
