Numbering Error, Random RantsAs I glanced at the calendar today, wondering how this month flew by so fast, something stranged occurred to me and I wondered if anyone else has ever noticed this.
SEPT = seven
OCT = eight
NOV I can only assume = nine
DEC = ten
Why then, is SEPTember the ninth month, October the tenth, November the eleventh, and December the twelfth? Why isn't October the EIGHTH month?
And why is it January February March etc through August, then...
And when is this new time change supposed to occur again? Wait. We fall backwards. So that means... if darkness comes at 7 PM... and we turn 7 back to 6... hmm. Well, I guess it'll be dark when I wake up.
Man, I hate this time of year. Even if I did manage to wake up in a GOOD mood this afternoon.
Oh, and one last thing. Pet Peeve: 700-page software manuals that come only in PDF form. Meaning in order to have this necessary reference on hand and visible while working in the software, one must either:
- buy enough ink cartridges and paper to print out the epic (and buy a notebook or two large enough to hold a ream-and-a-half of paper, thank you)
- buy a book someone wrote that is similar to having the manual but not available from your LBS meaning shipping cost/time
- have a second computer available and running at the same time to hold the PDF (because we don't want to put stress on the main CPU running the music software by having an "unnecessary" application open nor does it help to have to switch back and forth from PDF to program to PDF to program when you're trying to look at the screen shots AND the monitor at the same time)
What happened to the good old days when you got that big 3" x 11" x 8" box of software and it contained something substantial, not just air and a DVD and a whole lot of filler cardboard?
Enough whining. Besides. I have to go to Wal-Mart™ for another ream of paper and some ink.
