Hen Scratches 20-08-07

I have been reading a lot of the posts and dialogues that are going around but haven’t had much time to contribute so I am just enjoying them.

John and Lingamish write about loving language so here is my favourite language post and a poem I wrote last summer.

I bought the Canoscan 70 Lide, which has replaced the 25, and it works as advertised. I am puzzled though at why the wireless router and the scanner both had extra steps in installing that are not mentioned in the manual. Somehow I never manage the regular install, there is always that extra little step. I feel like a “slow learner”.

Here is a little mystery for you. What does one make of this entry in the Georgii Pasoris Manuale Novi Testamenti, Ed. Christianus Schotanus. Amsterdam: Ex officina Elzeviriana, 1664?

For those who asked I am thinking of a series on the names of G*d this fall. It won’t be a ‘gender’ series but something to tie in with the Lindisfarne stuff. I am a bit busy right now though, so I don’t know when I’ll start. But it is on my mind. And Waltke, I haven’t forgotten.

PS. Day 6 and the cat is still alive. I have to keep the cat from dog, the fish from the cat and all of them safely hidden away from the plumber or he won’t come in. Sigh.
