I’ve been listening to U2 all evening, so I’m energized, and you get a bonus post today.
The last two posts used a lot of words, so I need to let the word barrel fill up a bit before I use too many more.
(And as you know, work really taps into the barrel, so word conservation is really important. I recycle many of the words I use, and there’s that old trick of putting a brick in your mouth to cut down on word dumps.)
But pixels are really inexpensive these days, and they come in a wide variety of colors. I’ve arranged a bunch of them in some interesting patterns you might enjoy!
Recently I asked a question. Here’s the answer:
It’s funny the things that stick with you a life time. This is one of those bits of reality that’s been with me a long, long time. In some ways, it was an eye-opener for me; it presented a form of play I hadn’t quite experienced up to then.
(I know I’m being opaque. I’m not going to hand it to you on a silver platter.)
Now that I have a 3D Tardis I can render in any orientation or scale, I can p’shop (silent ‘p’) it into any photo (not a silent ‘p’ but it’s gotten all intimate with the ‘h’ and now they want to be known as ‘f’).
It would make the whole camping thing a great deal easier if we had a Tardis! (The extra luggage space would come in very handy.)
Long ago in California, a friend of mine opened his own health food store. He chose a new, swanky outdoor mall that, unfortunately, never really took off (expected local housing was never developed).
His store didn’t last long, but I got an interesting picture of the steel “flock of birds” sculpture that was in one of the mall fountains. I thought of this picture recently for a local “Geometry” photo prompt (but never got around to posting it):
Speaking of photos I never posted for photo prompts, for the “Illumination” one I thought of this one:
Which is what my dog saw laying on the floor. The skylight that I’ve mentioned before, the southern exposure and sunlight, all big reasons behind choosing this place! (Truth be told, I was nearly sold when I walked in the first time and saw the skylight in the living room.)
My spammers can be quite inventive, but I this one left me scratching my chin…
I’ve been programmer for almost 40 years, but I did not realize this apparently well-known importance. I confess I’m puzzled as to exactly how the availability factors into the software’s function. There appears to be data sharing involved, which puts in my ballpark. Strange I’ve never heard of it.
I leave you with this interesting picture of a mossy forest. My best friend took it on an Alaskan cruise with his wife a couple of years ago (click for a big version):
Work may (hopefully) be heating up. I’m expecting deliverables from both my data source guy and my data sink guy, so I’m hoping to move some data before the week ends. It would be nice to see some results of over five months of pushing a boulder uphill. Especially since a certain clock is down to 16 weeks now…
