GISAID has the new VOC Omicron up for genome tracking :

https://www.gisaid.org/hcov19-variants/

Great quick turnaround by Botswana and S. Africa in sequencing and sending in these genomes.

Took a 3-hour walk around downtown and uptown with stops at the Library and later for lunch. Christmastime has officially begun - lights up in the trees, the Big Tree downtown with surrounding Christmas-themed area is up (with at least 8-10 cops present for some reason), street musicians have rolled out the seasonally-appropriate tunes, and the Christmas village/train thingy is back at Seattle Center. This is maybe a quarter of it, it's pretty extensive, but so many people around...

Well... it's still a bit unclear what the Omicron Variant may mean as at least a couple weeks of data is going to be needed to figure how bad, or not, it may be for the world.

Can you imagine the size of the packaging for these?


In Spring of 1995, I downloaded Slackware 3.0 in the campus computer lab at Valdosta State. 85, or was it 87 3.5". I basically took over 3 workstations, fire up the FTP client on each, and downloaded directly to the floppy. By the time I had the command running on machine 3, machine 1 was ready for the next disk.

I went on a slow day, and let the lab admin know what's up, and would be willing to vacate a machine if needed. Thankfully, that wasn't needed and I got it all downloaded.

Thus began my tumultuous on again, off again, now mostly on again love affair with Linux. I now have it running on 4 machines at the house. A Lenovo m.700 as my desktop (does dual boot Win10 when needed), my Lenovo TS-440 has since been upgraded to a new Mobo/dual CPU setup, but I kept the chassoc because of the two sweet 4 bay drive cages. My router is a Pi running Ubuntu. And then I have another Pi running Ubuntu for messing around on. Gonna be getting a laptop soon, and I imagine it will also dual boot Ubuntu and Windows. But Ubuntu 20.04 is likely the last I'll see of their desktop version. I'm sure it's a "Get off my lawn" moment, but I absolutely cannot stand Snaps. And don't get me started on Docker.

Best Thanksgrabbing gift that didn't happen on Thanksgrabbing!

Mom's next-door neighbor is a state park policeman, and found Simba, Dobby and Ariana abandoned in a cardboard box. Mom and a few other kittens didn't make it. :(

Anyway, the three got very fond of mom's sunny screened porch with the endless kibble bowl and lapping / petting whenever Uncle Max was visiting.

Then Dobby dissapeared! Mom feared he had been et by local wildlife, which was very possible. Lots of foxen et al in the neighborhood.

Wednesday, I swung by mom's to do the "honey-do" list pre-big-dinner, and on my way home I saw a kitty with the exact coloring, including the distinctive white tail-tip padding across a driveway about ¼ mile away from mom's.

I would have stopped to get a better look, but that probably would have just made him bolt anyway. I'd like to think that Dobby found a better home and is now living plumply and purringly with adoring hoomans rather than being fox / coyote chow. Quite sure that's how I lost Miss Pancake. :(

Mom was really happy when I called her: "I think I know where Dobby went!"

I've renamed that list around here. I call it the "Sonny do list."

Very late to the party. Happy Thanksgiving all!!!

We started out the day yesterday with our annual Thanksgiving morning beach walk. We went to the gym in a futile attempt to offset the festing in the evening. Probably drank too much. Had dinner with our lovely neighbors and we shared stories about how our holiday seasons growing up left us with some form of PTSD that we still carry, lol.

Today we woke up and decided to go for another beach walk. We got our booster shots so hoping for an ok weekend instead of feeling like we caught the flu for a day or two. Fingers crossed.

Is it just me, or are y'all tired of yet another author peddling yet another book on how terrible the Trump administration was leading up to January 6th and peddling it as a bombshell revelation? 

I mean, come on. If you see a politician plotting to take down our nation in an attempted coup, FLUCKING SAY SOMETHING BEFORE IT HAPPENS AND BEFORE YOU PUBLISH YOUR DAMN BOOK. 

And I am super sick of rehashing the last four years - what are we doing NOW to fix the issues and to address what's happening NOW? What awesome legislation has passed and how will it benefit average Americans? What politicians are standing in the way of transformative legislation and how can we change that? 

I'm just so freaking tired of it all. It's the same news show every day. We know Trump was bad. We know Republicans are fascists. Hours upon hours of programming on this isn't making a difference.

I read the thread... Yang followed up with a message thread that can be summarized as, "I gave a bad answer, and it's your fault for fixating on it."

Politically, Yang already left the Dem party, and his own "bro" type base. I think he knows it and doesn't want to alienate them, so he's becoming versed in the time-honored tradition of double speak.

Yang himself may not be a racist in his vision or his day-to-day actions, but he might have a small contingent of fellow travelers, and I guess he's done the math and doesn't want to chase them off.
