Pretty fitting for a wrong link, though...

That's not strictly the case.

As an aside, the dude is investing a not insignificant sum into the development of BFR.

It's not exactly easy (or cheap) to design and fly a rocket that big.

John Singer Sargent! Wonderful portraitist.

Nothing fancy, barkeep. Just stopping in for a minute.

It's slowly dawning on me that a problem that I have at work is NP-hard. Fun fun.

Vancouver this weekend, Orcas Island next.

I use DDG as primary on desktop. I also frequently make use of the ! syntax (eg !g for Googling, !wiki for Wikipedia, !smile for Amazon, !wa for WolframAlpha, etc), which made the transition much easier. !g allows me to use Google for stuff I know DDG will choke on.

Freshroast SR 500. Operating principle is that of a fancy popcorn popper. Chaff collector, variable heat, fan speed and timing.

Where in hell's bells do you get fresh beans for $9/lb in Seattle?

I just bought a roaster; should pay for itself in about 3 months or so at $5/lb green beans.

The White Mountains are no joke. On a summer trip I got caught out with a rain that turned from mild to not-fun over the span of an hour, with large wind gusts catching us on exposed ridge for a couple miles until we could go below treeline again.

oh by the way when will you be returning to the PNW? I will be gone overseas from next weekend until beginning of July.
