I hated Interstellar. It has a terrible story. I’ve never rewatched it. For that reason.

If it hits my local Omniplex MAXX I might go again to see if I still hate it.

I’m just about over my anger and the missed opportunity that was Dune Part Two.

Should I rewatch it at home and rekindle the rage?

Testing this phone camera again. Out for a walk at Virginia Lake Park in Reno. Last phone camera shot I took looked awful. Way over-processed. On this one I turned off the faux-AI BS. It's a Motorola Moto. Also, I can barely see the screen. (Update: Now that I'm home and can view this on my computer, it's much nicer than the one I took the other day with that AI garbage turned on. This is an acceptable photo. Maybe I'll use it for some social media posts on upcoming hikes I'll be doing.)

@elaterite This one is better. Suitable when you can't carry a real camera everywhere.

Golden Hour
Chaco Culture National Historic Park, NM

Yes, you owe it to yourselves to visit this beautiful desert canyon filled with more amazing sights than you would have thought before you visited. It's far enough off the beaten path that you can enjoy a surrounded by the remains of a vast culture. I took this photo on my way to the campground after a wonderful day exploring the canyon.

Q: any reason to pay the premium for a genuine Arduino Uno rather than a compatible board with good reviews?

Mom's Tulips...

...still blooming and propagating for over 50 years. The daffodils are not fairing as well under my neglect—probably could use some fertilizer. (Photo from prior year.)

Survived another northern Atlantic winter. That’s 59 of them ticked off. Hoping for another 40 or so!

@ai6yr Yeah, right, one old dude and his wife all alone next to the river to watch the eclipse 🙄

Our nearest star about thirty minutes ago. That large sunspot region, 3615, right of center, is unusually large. That tiny spot to the left of 3615 is designated as 3617. It is how big the Earth would appear if it were on the surface of the Sun (which thankfully it isn't!) Sadly, I do not think I will make it to see the total eclipse. I will be in the Four Corners region. I may make a dash to see it, however.

@bosquebill@techhub.social avatar

@elaterite I've decided not to try for this eclipse. From what I've read traffic and congestion will be horrific all along the path.

Besides I had a wonderful viewing in 2017 in middle of nowhere Wyoming (and even there the traffic was backed up for hours.)

I'll post some of my photos next week.

Echo Peak in the Evening Light

The fourth consecutive photo from my camp at Marble Canyon, this time looking NE—Lee's Ferry is just behind the leftmost ridge. I used 70mm to isolate the peak.

I did jinx it. Had an SVT incident at 01:00 as I was attempting to fall asleep. A MVM reduced rate from 123 to 80 but heartbeat felt erratic afterwards. Flutter and missing beats. Apple Watch ECG reported Atrial Fibrillation. Which has never happened before over the 2+ years I’ve been getting SVT attacks. ECG just now also reporting atrial fibrillation.

I’m having a chill-out day.

@ianRobinson I'm thinking some folks are confusing AF with VF. AF on its own is not life threatening.

Iowa is closer to the U.S. border with Canada than the one with Mexico, and yet they're following Texas's lead in issuing a state law criminalizing undocumented migrants. Just whose land are the residents of Iowa living on?

Hate to break it to you, but getting old sucks. Some mornings it feels like everything hurts. I sincerely hope you are doing better than I am today.

"The intermittent fasting trend MAY pose risks to your heart

Intermittent fasting — when people only eat at certain times of day — has exploded in popularity in recent years. But now a surprising new study suggests that there MIGHT be reason to be cautious: It found that some intermittent fasters were more likely to die of heart disease.
Zhong said that he and his colleagues .. were surprised by their findings."

@ai6yr Don't care. It's been a tradition in our family all my life. I don't cook it every year, but am this year. So delicious. The brisket is in the pot even as I write this.
