And just like that package I'm waiting on for real, FedEx can't deliver because the address was wrong by Wayfair Shipping, even though it's correct on the invoice..hmmm this shipping crap blows

When you peek out of the window at night and are glad about "Homeoffice". (Yet another pseudo-anglizism in German; I guess you say "work from home" or WFH.)

 

First snow here, right on time for December. It was not really expected after those warm November days (more than +10°C, I walked outside without a jacket.) I'm here at about 50°N latitude.

Home for me is around 47.9N, and had first snow in mid-October.  During my last visit in 2019, I arrived the day before a blizzard.  Was not going to stop me from making a day-trip.

Also not the same song, but still fun for those who get it.

Interesting. The lower maria (especially the one above the Tycho crater) seem to be in front, while the edges are further back.

I found out that my left eye is dominant today.  I did a reverse on the red one (as in two opposing images) only to see the right hand object when viewing it.

In the first 0.153 secs, I seem to see the left (red) console first, then I get into a state of visual confusion.

Im slow so I only saw the left computer image, since the one on the right was spelled in reverse...

I saw this video earlier today.  About 0:25 seconds in is drone footage showing cables unraveling and their catastrophic failing.  :(

It's nice and all that they have CHEAP wireless USB gamepad controllers for the PC like << THIS ONE >> at Amazon, but damn, WHY no affordable joystick types for old codgers like myself that cannot so diddly squat with these new fangled game pads?

Just want to point out how much Teespring sucks. I use it for my TI apparel store because they offered things others did not, and it is fairly easy. But its templates are pretty bad if you can find them. I had to dig through the blogs to find the "ugly sweater" template to make a TI-themed Christmas sweater, but both the template and the instructions are terrible, as is the explanation of what to expect. This is why I have not completed the leggings and joggers yet, as well.

 

It would be so much better if just those aspects were corrected.
