Since I joined Google, I’ve just been a boy standing in front of the search group asking it to love a Web filter. So happy to see it’s arrived – congrats to the hard-working team on this project that through their own efforts made it a reality! https://mastodon.social/@searchliaison/112441219235077974

@RichiH It's rolling out today and tomorrow and the second part addresses what you asked, "those who just prefer text-based results shown separately from search features"

I encourage everyone to fly from San Francisco Bay Oakland International Airport to watch the Los Angeles Angels Of Anaheim play baseball.

Halfway though, #Fallout is amazing.

I’m so grateful and in awe of what the team behind Star Trek: Lower Decks has given us and so sad, immensely sad, the next fifth season will be the last. I get it. All Good Things…. But you’ve been among the best of Star Trek, Lower Decks. We’re gonna miss you.

Clouds couldn’t stop us seeing the eclipse!

Want to watch tomorrow's eclipse? This is a nice page that lets you tap on a map and know when it begins and ends for any area where it's partially or totally viewable. Good viewing, everyone! https://eclipsewise.com/solar/SEgmapx/2001-2100/SE2024Apr08Tgmapx.html

Took a break testing my Dwarflab on the sun for the eclipse and pointed it down to Earth

@dannysullivan@mastodon.social avatar

Decided to go back to the past & got a new old 8 track tape player. For those who have never encountered this gem of portable music, a video tour. More background: 4 main tracks or programs with different music on each track (and eight tracks in all because each main track has two, right & left, for that awesome stereophonic sound). Want to hear your fav song again? Wait until it rolls around again. No fast forward (typically) & no be kind rewind as no rewind.

Showing how an eight track changes between tracks, automatically changes tracks and fades out of a song is too long for a track then changes to a new track to fade up and continue the song

The G in "Bene Gesserit" is pronounced like the G in "gif." Glad I could clear this up.

Paddleboard Tatooine. Some of Star Wars was filmed in Death Valley, so couldn’t resist. Way too windy to try wearing the helmet out on the water, though!

Paddleboard Death Valley! Lake Manly has been reborn, drawing kayakers, tourists & me with my paddleboard. Just in time for super high winds. I put in just past Badwater. I had to remove my big main fin to keep from dragging. And eventually … open water! I couldn’t stand for long, as it was so windy plus I kept dragging if I tried. Went for about a mile - fantastic!

Made it out to Cal Poly’s “Architecture Graveyard” where old student projects live on. Most impressive was the Shell House, oldest of the projects dating back to 1963. More about the structures here: https://polycanyon.calpoly.edu/history

Goodbye landline. I couldn’t remember when I last used you, so it was time to disconnect. Don’t worry, I’ll still hoard the actual phone “just in case”

Fortunate to be in Reykjavik for New Year’s. We’d heard the are fireworks amazing & they were. Also enjoyed the traditional Áramótaskaupið news comedy special that virtually everyone here watches at 10:30pm on New Year’s Eve. Our taxi driver told us you know it’s on because all the fireworks stop for an hour and — true! Didn’t catch all the references but what we did was very funny (thanks RÚV 2 for having it with English subtitles). Happy New Year to you all.

This is where the Icelandic Met Office posts about the volcanic eruption on the Reykjaness Peninsula in Iceland. Pretty much any news report you read cites them. They also have an English page, but the Icelandic language one gets updated faster. https://vedur.is/um-vi/frettir/jardskjalftahrina-nordan-vid-grindavik-hofst-i-nott

I grew up on Norman Lear shows, which had a huge, positive impact on me and soany others. They took on important issues with thoughtfulness, love and humor. https://www.latimes.com/obituaries/story/2023-12-06/norman-lear-all-in-the-family-dead

I kept stopping to look at all the models Bill Strausser has on his shelves in the latest episode of For All Mankind because so many of them I recognized from models I built as a kid in the late 1970s. I only have one bad photo of the many I built at that time but yes, there’s one of my cool rockets and elsewhere the Pan Am spaceplane from 2001: A Space Odyssey

Who wore it better, Quetzalcóatl that I saw at the amazing Teotihuacán ruins yesterday or Kukulkan in the "How Sharper Than a Serpent's Tooth" episode of the Star Trek animated series of my youth?

The Verge had an article today on SEO. I got mentioned a fair bit. I wanted to share some of my personal thoughts about that (along with apologies to anyone who I might have made feel that I -- and Google Search -- aren't humble about the task of improving search and the important role it plays in people's lives. I am. We are. Here's my post: https://dannysullivan.com/thoughts-verge-article-seo-6558

Had a + annual plan that renewed but I wanted to change to the Duo option with -- and couldn't do through either separate account. Figured it would be a phone call and a nightmare. But there was a chat support that instantly responded and got me all sorted out within a few minutes. Well done!

I've owned a split flap display for a year now and often get asked what it's like. So ... I wrote a blog post! Spoiler: it's wonderful! https://dannysullivan.com/vestaboard-split-flap-display-6526
