A quiet day of work today. Work work work. A little rain, a little sunshine, and a little news.
I hardly ever watch "news" video online, do you? But this one caught my eye: Whale watchers celebrate epic season. So that's good news right? Or is it bad news ... I can never remember which way climate change is supposed to cut. The picture of a gray whale at left is on the climate.org website, listed as an endangered species.
This is pretty cool (NPI): Robot finds fish beneath Antarctic ice. "When a group of scientists drilled through 2,430 feet of ice in Antarctica to get to the water underneath, they only expected to find a few microbes here and there. Instead, they discovered a thriving community of fish and crustaceans." Unlike climate "science", this is real science; a theory and an experiment to test it which modifies the theory.
Wow I need one: The Taco toaster. Crunchy tacos without frying in oil...
But of course: Worry for Solar Projects after End of Tax Credits. Too bad all that money is being wasted on subsidies for non-viable tech.
I'm installing the latest Windows 10 Technical Preview. The more I read, the more I'm convinced this will be my next OS. You may ask, why not OS X? Good question. I guess I just like Visual Studio for C++ development...?
