Re: W-H-I-Y-L - boom shake-shake shake the-room.
Sat through an interview today which would determine whether I get an extension to my research grant for another year. Would have gotten a response by the end of next week.

Got an unofficial message from a member of the committee, instead, personally congratulating me on the quality of my presentation and letting me know that I will be receiving the official confirmation of my extension tomorrow afternoon.

Just saw a YouTube commenter named "Colonel Dookie" and wondered if it was someone I knew.  :nervous:

I need to commission a BBQ grill brush from you!  My damn dog keeps eating mine if I set it down for a moment or forget to bring it in.  He will chew up anything made of wood or plastic.
Maybe someday God will give you a little pink toaster of your own.

Yesterday, it was 115-120 degrees (freedom units) around Southern California. Parts of the state literally burst into flames.

Today it's over 110, and raining (well, it's done now).

Quoting because fun.

For the rest of us using regular units, that's over 43°C, to which I have to say : Holy cow ! Congratulations on not melting alive, keep yourself well hydrated and pray to the gods of rain to lower the temperature a bit while they're at it.

Southern California's a ****ing desert. It rarely, if ever, rains more than a trickle here. I miss rain.

We would give you some, but it's not been raining for a month here now and now Silverstone looks like Sonoma Raceway.

Yesterday I woke up, half my yard was PeaSoup Mist and the other was clear. Spooky.

Also actual rain would be great. And not Cold winds from the Snow on the Mountains.

My cable modem, which I rent from my ISP and through which I receive VOIP service, had to be replaced recently.  The replacement modem did not come with a battery backup for the VOIP module, so I lose phone service when the power goes out.  There's a battery available, but the ISP requires that I buy the battery for the modem that I rent.

When this modem's time comes, I'm keeping the battery.  It might be a proprietary form factor and have proprietary connectors, so that it's not compatible with anything but this cable modem, but it's my battery.

Woe is me.  Home air conditioner decided to call it quits, after business hours of course.  Everyone is cranky and cannot get to sleep.  Tomorrow it is supposed to get to 96F, with heat index of 105.

When you accidentally fat-finger "Mark ALL posts as read" despite having some subfolders you've intentionally waited on for months.

Fuuuuuuck.

Seriously why the hell isn't there a warning dialog on that.

I've been working private sector UXO clearance for a few weeks now and it's the job I was born to do.  Cash money.  I get to travel all over the place and get paid for it. (Travel pay on top of my generous salary) No screaming baby waking me up at silly hours and my bomb know-how brain is being put to good use.


I was good at being a civil administration officer and being on first name terms with all manner of Judges at my last job was ok,  but this new life pleases me and once the cash money goes to my loving wife I will have the bread winning upper hand muahaha.  (She's a solicitor)


Also I just watched ant man 2 at the local imax.   It was exactly what I thought it would be :/

Just got the crap scared out of me by an Amber Alert on my phone. It's my first smartphone and I've only had it for a month or so, so I'm still not used to the idea of getting an EAS message from anything other than a TV or a radio. Suddenly hearing the EAS sound from out of nowhere really late at night is scary enough, and then there's the fact that I had no idea where it was coming from because I don't have a TV or radio turned on. So for a moment, there was a fear that either some paranormal stuff was going on or some psycho was in my house and playing a recording of that sound from right behind me. I'm just glad I wasn't holding a glass of water or something fragile, because I probably would have dropped it.

Nice sketches!  :yes:

Also: It's been so long since I logged-in!

(Although, I do lurk the HLR Discord)  :nervous:
A small voice in my head tells me they are have followed us here in the Milky Way. They follow us until we are dead at their feet. We are nomands of the stars, no longer the race that was loved by the Great Elders. My name is Kyral and this is my story of survival.

There is no sanctuary for us, in this Universe. We will fight the Terror for one last time on this Shining World. May the Transcendent judge us kindly in the Life Stream.
