More from Ian Mortimer's Time Traveler's Guide to Medieval England:
"...blind horses are usually worth only about half their usual price. In case you are wondering why there are so many blind horses, it is because they have been stolen, and blinding a horse is one way to prevent it from finding its way back home or recognizing its true master."
If you think the way we treat animals today is substantially better, you are a goddamn fool.
Republicans specialize in Big Lies, but they enjoy telling thousands of small lies too. A nice example was displayed when Trump's first national security advisor Michael Flynn pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI, and agreed to cooperate with the Mueller investigation. In response, Trump's gutter sleaze of a lawyer went out of his way to describe Flynn as a "former Obama administration official", but, as The Guardian points out, "Obama fired Flynn as head of the Defense Intelligence Agency and warned Trump against hiring him".
Desktop alarm clock — Free, open source — Windows — Delphi
nthClock is a free, open source desktop alarm clock I created many years ago:
The design is now outdated, and modern Windows versions are not supported, but I no longer work with Delphi, so there will be no further development.
The current and last version is 3.0.0, which includes snooze alarms and numerous usability improvements. See the nthClock release notes for a list of changes.
nthClock is compatible with Windows XP, 2000, Me, 98, and 95 only.
To install nthClock, download the nthClock 3.0.0 install program (3.8 MB), unzip it, double-click 'Setup.exe', and follow the instructions. Be sure to check 'Yes, Launch the program file' when the 'Setup Complete' form is displayed.
nthClock has copyright ©2001 Jeremy Kelly. Its use and distribution are subject to the terms of the GNU General Public License.
The application was developed with Delphi 5. The nthClock 3.0.0 source files (60 KB) are not needed to use the program.
