[...] Square brackets enclose text that is paraphrased (usuallybecause I can't keep up with the speaker).

{...} Curly brackets enclose words that were thought, not spoken.This almost always refers to my own thoughts.

[21:34] is a time (hours and minutes) used to indicate how long adiscussion, activity, etc. is lasting. Note that I sometimes indicate times greater than 24:00, such as "25:35" for 1:35 AM, or "27:02" for 3:02 AM. These represent staying awake past midnight. When I go to sleep, the hour resets to normal.
