Interesting meme that buymeaclue has up.

But you know what? If you've got a question or so for me that you don't already know the answer to, go ahead and ask.


I remembered that I hate packing for deployment. There's always something I forget. Maybe I could just pick something out and deliberately not get it, and then I'd be in the clear?

Taking the computer onboard tomorrow morning, so that I can get all of the requisite safety checks and such. See, everything that comes onboard needs to be kept in a master file, and inspected at the beginning to make sure that it's safe for shipboard use. Ship power has two hot (powered) leads and a ground instead of a hot, a neutral (unpowered0, and a ground like household wiring. Older electrical items used to have the neutral side wired to the outside case as a return/ground, which, you can see, would cause problems if both wires were hot? Now, the safety checks are mostly a formality.


Watching "Space Cowboys". What a group of sexy older men. ;o)
