I sent the fifteenth edition of The Newsletter Leaf Journal with a typo in the title. While "Bess" is a name, I meant to say "Bees." I'm no stranger to typos.
Since I switched from Windows to Linux in August, I have had to learn how to do some things in the Linux terminal. Certain actions require root privileges - which means I have to type "sudo" followed by whatever the command is, and then my user password. About 1/4 times I try to type "sudo," I type "sudp" instead. This morning, I tried to start my VPN. The command to automatically connect to the fastest VPN server is sudo protonvpn c -f. I inadvertently tried something new this morning: sudo protonvon c -f. Apparently I can hit "o" instead of "p" just as easily as I hit "p" instead of "o." Terrible stuff.
But I digress. I published content on every day but one this past week, so let us review the week that was and look forward to the week ahead.
I published the fourth entry in my January 1897 bird series yesterday - covering the Golden Pheasant. While the Golden Pheasant article in the magazine was a bit shorter than the previous bird articles, the Golden Pheasant is no less impressive than the early birds.
On Tuesday, I published a bonus anime series recommendation as an addendum to my anime recommendations of the decade article from December. The post looks at the curious case of Usagi Drop, a recommendable anime, but one with some baggage from the underlying manga (comic) series. The post also includes an additional anime recommendation with no such baggage - Sweetness and Lighting.
I still have six bird articles to publish on birds from the January 1897 issued of Birds: A Monthly Serial, in addition to a bonus article on two bird poems in the magazine. Unsurprisingly, the project will trickle into February, although you can expect multiple articles for the series this week. If I have time this week, I will publish a book review that I had planned to post last week.
I recently purchased a PocketBook Color e-reader. PocketBook, based in Switzerland, is the world's third-largest producer of e-readers after Amazon and Rakuten. PocketBook's e-readers only recently became available in the United States on Amazon and Newegg. Its Euro-centricity is evinced by the fact that all the book prices in the PocketBook store are displayed in Euros. I have not had time to do too much with it yet, but I will review the e-reader here at The New Leaf Journal in February or March. I can say that the e-ink screen is quite impressive.
