So, I just figured out that this QOTD I keep seeing everywhere stands for "question of the day" and is not the initials of some Latin phrase I ought to know but don't. (I spent four years studying Latin and Greek in college, plus a few other years here and there, but the extent of my ignorance of these matters continues to amaze me.) What I haven't figured out is where one finds the question of the day. Clearly, I haven't quite learned my way around this whole Vox landscape yet.
I like it pretty well so far, though. When I first started putting things online in 1999, I wanted desperately to be discovered. Nowadays, not so much. This is a nice sort of compromise.
Now, though, I'm going to go spend a little time in my physical neighborhood. I've hung my laundry out to dry (on the porch railings, since I haven't gotten around to rigging up a clothesline yet), and I'm off to spend some time hanging out in the coffeeshop. Then I'll see if the small machine repairman can fix my vacuum cleaner. O the joys of Saturday!
