I've been doing the PayPal TF thing and it ends tomorrow, but I can't find a way to change payment options. Maybe I need my subscription to lapse and then the link to resubscribe will be available. We may see at midnight.

That reminds me of Indiana Jones.

Some people might not like the sight of a great blade like that.  I'm not one of them.

There was some video that tested like 45 different metal preservatives on sheets of metal in the rain and outside etc, and the ones covered with this stuff outlasted just about anything else, while the others all got rusted.

I never saw it; it would probably make for a great marathon watch.  Once you're in their world, wherever and when ever it is.

On Netflix, they had to put "This is a work of fiction" all over the Messiah series. Because people are stupid and complain to anybody who will listen when their sensibilities are challenged.

Finally figured out how to power my iPad and hook up wired headphones and a USB MIDI keyboard at the same time through the solitary USB-C port.  Had to get a non-Apple multiport thing.  Applecare recommended it because they had nothing similar.  Now it is scary fast.  Bluetooth headphones have about a 30 msec latency, you would press the key and wait. for about a 1/2 of a blink of an eye, but now it is basically usable, for that free MiniMoog synth that runs on it.

On the weekend I put lemon oil on my fretboard, checked the neck relief, adjusted the action, performed intonation, and adjusted pickup heights.  I think the action is 0.5/64" too low, and will have to go back and re-adjust.  Actually playing music though, the last 'real' song I played is the Cryptic Song, and a little bit of Green-Eyed Lady.
