it might come back.

 

 

first a power outage of which we have few and the fact that i notice it as something how spoiled we are as i read the tweets about homs again then very low fast clouds a pink sky things written while listening to john cale thanks friends for reminding me but unsaved and lost by mistake mm that feeling of having really liked something but not being able to remember what it was precisely then how important can it have been anyway?

 
it might come back. power did.

true cloud storage

 

hereby suggested a model in which files are never stored on any disk or medium anymore, but forever kept in transit, i.e. network interfaces configured such that every incoming packet gets forwarded and sent out again without ever being stored. a network of hosts to be configured to reflect files in such a way.

files may at all times be extracted from this transient non-storage, and played, processed, whatever. yet they never are stored anywhere.

 

if no prior art exists, these here lines constitute it.

 

 

the birds and the old fool

 

and the children were playing and running round and the birds were singing in the trees, singing beautifully –

 

just an old man, sitting on a bench, he could not smile –
he kept pointing at the birds, saying

“that song is mine! mine!” –

the children could not even be bothered to argue with him –
they glanced at him briefly with eyes saying “oh! you poor old fool” then dashed off again, playing.

they left him sitting there.
one day he died.

the birds were still singing.
