Cats In Space


Summary:

“What makes this unique is (despite) the very rough circumstances in which these people are living, they still manage to find the time and effort to have companion animals with them.”

from http://www.msn.com/en-us/news/world/dogs-monkeys-cats-2000-year-old-pet-cemetery-uncovered-in-egypt/ar-AAl138a

There was a Godzilla movie where space people kept baby Ghidorahs on their ships.  When asked why they said "when we get lost they help us feel better."  I'd always thought that something was lost in the translation, but in pondering it I think that if I were in a difficult place I'd truly wish that my cat was with me.



Almost Back


Summary:

Sorry about that,  we've been moving so I shut down the server for a the transition.  Almost back now except for the media server which I'll get to when I find it in the boxes.



Alive Yes, Putting my money where my mouth is


Summary:

K.  I have seen the texts and emails.  Got it.  It is thought that a blog is about posting.  Got that too.  But this isn't a "blog", it was started several years before that ugly term went viral.  This is a web site, made from the ground up by me to test out how a web site is made from the ground up.  A "blog" is a tool that people who don't know how to code and script use to promote themselves.  Some are great, many are vanity plates.

And don't get me started on Facebook.

I put stuff here that I need to remember so I can go back and find it when I forget. Though sometimes when the whiskey hits me just right I guess I do use this as a place to vent or pontificate, there's no need to remember my foibles.

Tomorrowland


Summary:


"It is essential to maintain a positive vision of the future, from which to draw our goals, the motivation to pursue them, and the compulsion to meet the complex human challenges we will face along the way"

-Kathy Sullivan, Astronaut.  From her preface to The High Frontier by Gerard K. O'Neill

Tomorrowland.

Honest.  Go see it.  For Fun at least.  It is NOT what you have heard.

Went Home for the holidays


Summary:

... and took our traditional December picture.

daboy's getting so big



Klink has my chess set


Summary:

I like Chess.

I like Hogan's Heroes.

Whoda thunk the coolest Chess set I'd ever seen would have been owned by Wilhelm Klink?

 

It's a very large Barleycorn variation, with a "Washington" Calvert style rook.  Can't find anything exactly like it anywhere.  But boy is this one quest worthy.



E3 2014 Gamespot All Hail Monolith


Summary:

I'n not a big fan of pages just listing links but....

http://www.gamespot.com/articles/e3-2014-gamespot-s-best-of-e3-2014-winners/1100-6420468/

Gamespot did their biggies of E3 2014 and I'm full of pride for the great folks at Monolith!  Shadow of Mordor *is* awesome!

And for Heinlein fen, take a gander at No Man's Sky.  Please God, make it release the way they envision it.



Benny The Focused Lego


Summary:

Lego Movie is coming.  The book is already here. 

My son yelled across the Barnes and Noble store ...

...that we are in it :).

 



Yes, thank you, it was a very nice birthday


Summary:

I'm a terrible person.  I make my living teaching machines to keep track of minutia but I never remember anyone else's birthdays.  Guess it's like being able to spot the best mechanic by looking for the guy in the most beat up car in the dealer lot.

In any case, I thank the long-time budds who wished me a happy and yes it was.



Huh. Samuel Adams was an old guy


Summary:

I've had this as my desktop image for a while now. I like it for several personal reasons, but I just finally noticed the dates.

1722 DOB, that means he was in his 50s during the famous Revolution work.  40s and 50s back then was like 60s and 70s today.

Huh.
