Meet my Cairo love, Leela :-) I'm just a bit worried that she will feel lonely as the only cat. (The red rash on my chin is some Norwegian folliculitis according to my GP - she prescribed an antibiotic cream. I must have caught it at The Kon Tiki Museum.)

Pets travel in funny containers, which I thought would make perfect nests for hens. I've noticed an empty one at the airport (it was completely dark inside, when I looked through the holes), so i took it :-)

@"Large scale C++ is from 90s., doesn't make it bad."

The Bible is from 400 B.C. and people still read it :-P

Your statement would be even more impactful if you referred to it as 400 BCE.

Ach, it was a slip of the tongue. Old habits die hard.

I may have been making a positive remark.C++ is from 1980.
I met Gene Golub a few times at conferences in the 70s.

It's Era Vulgaris at the moment (Vico).

Yes, as Cuch suggests, it is not a who but a when. Common Era. The usage evidently dates back to the early 18th century, and represents a minor break with the conventions laid down by Dionysius Exiguus. Minor, inasmuch as the numbers don't change, merely the reference to Christ and Domini.

Thanks for the explanation, Cuchulainn and Bearish xx

Isn't she adorable? The photo doesn't give away the natural colour of her fur: calico silver and pink. Have a look at the back of her neck :-)
She's purring while I'm working - trying to work :-)

There's a hole in my heart of a size of one small cat :-( Someone else will cuddle with him tonight :-'(
I got the Prossecco to drown my sorrow.
