• @maique Yeah, I know that feeling.

  • @maique i love this one.

  • @mbkriegh Terrific.

  • @amerpie Aye, the "interesting times" curse really sucks. On the other hand, today I feel hopeful, energized, and a little poorer (donations increased.)

  • @Miraz Yes, they do that here, too. Except one time my friend walked out the front door, saw a quail on the railing, the quail saw him, and bam Cooper's Hawk, leaving a cartoon-like ball of feathers in the air. My bird expert says the hawks know how to wait for them to be distracted by something.

  • @Miraz They are cute little birds, but they sure are fast when they want to be.

  • @maique Ahhhh, so nice. The hats and magazines, just terrific.

  • @Archimage Far too vague a question. Either is fine, given the construction, documentation, and purpose.

  • @maique I laughed when she took it to school.

  • @mineinmono Oh, I like "Xitter", especially with the right pronunciation. I had not seen that before.

  • @maique Yup, I got all that and that's what I loved.

  • @maique Sticker spotter has hit a new level.

  • @tinyroofnail That makes sense. I spent some time looking at genomics and realized quickly that, although you can think of it as programming, the programs have no requirement that a single mind can understand them, nor that the actions of the program be clear and maintainable. On the contrary, the forces that construct those programs favor crazy resilience, redundancy, testing in the wildest circumstances. I think it's no coincidence that viruses, the software most popularly named after biology, are specifically things we are terrible at controlling.

  • @pip Oh, yes, yes, yes.

  • @joelhamill The wild hacker lures its prey...

  • @annahavron I love a good cu-nim.

  • @jtr Not new, no, used to listen in the late 80s early 90s. Not so much these days, since i can make my own collections on streaming services. On listenability, a friend who introduced me to it and I were working at a Linux distro in the days when configuring sound drivers was a crap shoot. We were talking up the station (two Easterners in California, you understand), so the President tuned in at midnight during a late night testing session, because we had told him sound should work now. Well, he got sound, but it was crazy garbled stuff, so he trued a different machine…and got the same crazy garbled “music”. 3AM NY time is when WFMU schedules the really experimental music. We did not convert him to a regular listener.

  • @jtr Ah, good to see someone discover the, Ken Freedman used to say he was proud that their programming was so diverse, even he had to leap to turn down the volume several times a day..

  • @Miraz That's what intrigues me...

  • @Miraz Whenever I look at these plots, I look at Stewart Island and think, I'd really like to be back there.

  • @UndamnedOne Thank you, but I was hoping you could read the clouds.

  • @UndamnedOne Mine or the clouds'?

  • @jomalo @gregmoore Correct! I was intrigued that @odd kept thinking it was nautical, because it is basically a scupper for a flat roofed building.

  • @dejus Much bigger than that, no electricity involved, and that's a good thing.

  • @odd This prevents an unwanted swimming pool.
