Tuesday!

I did some updates on my PC and now several webpages, including this one, is extremely washed out and hard to read. WTF?
 
2022-06-28 8:16:05 PM  
Had to disable hardware acceleration in Edge. WTF.

Get some Indian ink and spread it across your monitor and it will fix the washed out part. India ink is very black BTW. No wishy washely grey will ever be seen again.

Good advice! It's much better now.

Be right there, getting gas.  Looking forward to a nice cold hard kombucha soon.

Absolutely insane testimony today.

Hmm, I can't seem to reply to a comment. Had to get a new PC, my old one went tits up. This one is still suboptimized, but right up top the latest sw, anyway.

Ahh that is better, had to enable scripts.

Have you enabled HDR?  High Def Resolution or something?  I just saw that setting in 'settings'>display yesterday and am pleased that the monitor supports it.  It made things more vibrant and colors more deep, I think, definitely brighter.

It is really worth turning on HDR though.  That is a newer-type thing they have developed with more bits of color depth.

Try Firefox and fark Edge. I use Edge, Brave and sometimes Chrome for backup when my add ones in Firefox block videos only.

Firefox with the NoScript plugin is a good combo.

Mmmm, hard kombucha, Heavenly Hops flavor, 3% Alcohol by volume.  Everyone loves kombucha, don't they?

Sheffield is ~70 miles from me. It's in the SW corner of the state.

I'm not sure that I "love" it, but I like it. The non-hard variety, I mean.

You are surrounded!  They could be out there right now.

I'm gonna run outside to see if I can see five planets.
 
2022-06-28 10:26:19 PM  
I think I saw three of the planets.  One seemed to be where Arcturus should be, but it was not twinkling and had about a -2 magnitude, i.e. brighter than a star.

I've seen mysterious lights in the sky. Phoebe used to bark at one that followed the same path frequently. Diamond-shaped and was silent (but I don't know how high up it was...had to be much lower than commercial). I do get semi-frequent military overflights, but those are most decidedly not silent.

Mostly see passenger planes here. Planes still seem odd to see.

Yeah, I probably might.  I went out back yesterday so set up a schwenker grill, and there was a baby deer and mother and big birds. It was like opening a door into a zoo.  But the schwenk must flow, and did.  I'll try to post a pic.

Well, me neither, but maybe it is the alcohol in it, or something.

Here is the full schwenker grill, and schwenkbraten, although it looks like butterflied sea anemone, probably, with onions and garlic and juniper berries &c.

The point is, the grill surface swings over the coals.  All the parts came from Home Depot.  It has a grill surface suspended on a cable hooked to a winch.  It works well, and scares deer.

tasted like butterflied pork chops.  Bought a long pork loin and cut it into 10 butterflied poke chops.  Long pork, no, just regular pork.
