I almost forgot it's Tuesday.

I've had to deal with so much crap today. And, now, I went to get a glass of water and...no water. I had water ~30 minutes ago. Waiting for the water people to call back. :/

No water?     It's not Tesla water, is it?  This is like, city water?  How can they do that to you?  Maybe you need to go to town to get some bottle water before everyone else snatches it up.  The electricity is OK?

I have to go outside in a couple minutes because a Falcon 9 is taking off at 9:02

Can you hear it from your house, IronTom?
 
2022-01-18 9:12:26 PM  
Been on the phone with the water people. They'll be out tomorrow, but gave me some things to try overnight to see if it works in the morning.

ecmoRandomNumbers: Can you hear it from your house, IronTom?


Not this time.  Last time was really loud, and even heard the sonic booms from the re-entry of the first stage.  This is so exciting that the thing can land upright.  They landed on the ship in the ocean this time, so I didn't hear that either.  It was  a beautiful launch, right near the full moon.  I took a pic, trying to get that posted here shortly.

Here is the pic!  The moon  is to the left, the Falcon 9 is to the lower right.

Happy New Year!!!

You could melt snow, if you have any.  Bring in a bathtub-full of snow, and melt it in the tub so that you can flush the toilet.  There is water in the tank behind the toilets, in 20th-century toilet designs, as well as in the hot water tank, for general hot water heaters.

That's a good idea. No shortage of snow here. Thankfully, I have some bottled water.

There was some potentially hazardous asteroid flying by and this site is supposed to let you see it, somehow.  I haven't figured it out yet.  Maybe you'll have better luck.

Ew, SciChan is saying about how rats can crawl up your drain pipe and bite you on your ass on the toilet.

EcmoRandomNumbers song update:  up to bar 87 of 100.  The timing alignment should be done this week.  I was really surprised when I went to Scribd this week and the great sheet music I used for this song was gone, removed by request from the publisher Schott Music GmbH.  That was a bit startling.  Luckily it was there when needed,

I wonder if they had a secret encoder ring, or maybe that was too secret to put in a KrackerJack Box.

I've never seen it before, ever.  It seems handy for travel.  It appears to have other capabilities, that I haven't figured out yet.  They seem to promote it as an acoustic guitar.  Not sure how it would perform in an electric setting with feedback.  It looks like it could be fun.

They have begun selling THC-0 stuff around here.  That is supposed to be anywhere from 3 to 33 times stronger than delta 9.  I have not tried it, but it appears amazing that this stuff is legal, and that is a great thing.

Now, with ubiquitous, unquestioned masks, the facial recognition systems have been thrown a curveball.
