  1. ≈ What I'm wearing for my last dinner in Greensboro with my partner. I expect to be the best dressed man at any Greensboro restaurant on a Tuesday night. The crazy thing to me is those Outlier Slim Dungarees. They really do just look like dress pants, with a jacket. With a t-shirt or sweater, they look like jeans. Amazing. They are made to be worn every day for a year with minor cleaning. Fair enough.
  2. I haven't watched the second season, but the first was very good!
  3. Those adjustable arms are, like, "placebo machines." I kinda like it.
  4. I am visiting my girlfriend, in Greensboro, North Carolina. I travelled with the cats, as I mentioned. They did INCREDIBLY well. I wish I could somehow tell them just how proud I am of them, but all I can do is love them, which I was doing anyway. We are in a "tiny-house." It works pretty well, but the cats aren't comfortable with the very steep stairs up to the loft, where the bed is, so they have just been staying downstairs. They don't love that, as they are used to sleeping on my bed, but it's not the end of the world. They seem content enough. Maybe a little bored, as there isn't a lot of room, though I brought toys and scratchers, and all of their favorite things, and I've been giving them as much attention as I can. We (Heather and I, not me and the cats) were supposed to go to a concert tonight, in Asheville, but I didn't feel comfortable leaving them alone, with all the changes that have happened, so I stayed (I sent Heather on, and it was apparently a good show [Will Oldham, so I wish I could have gone]). They seemed to appreciate that. They are SUCH good kitties.
  5. I mean, they are certainly attention getting, I'll give 'em that.
  6. "'Don't live in areas where forest fires happen" is about the most ignorant fucking statement '" beats it by a little ways.
  7. You do realize that "clearing forests" is precisely the opposite of what forests need, right? These ecosystems burn, naturally, on a regular basis: many plants and animals absolutely require it. "Firebreaks" are not natural. Clearing forests of undergrowth also doesn't prevent forest fires. What it does mean is that, instead of smaller fires happening on a regular basis, you get more absolutely devastating ones, they just don't happen as often: old trees that haven't been replaced by new ones (because they can't release seeds because there haven't been fires, plus weeds that aren't naturally endemic are able to grow in "cleared-out" areas, and thus prevent seedlings of trees from growing where fire-depdendant cones can actually work) make for GREAT kindling. Don't live in areas where forest fires happen.
  8. the COSC certificate from 1968.
  9. A bunch of ceiling speakers in a very strange shoe store?
  10. Dunhill has recovered, though it took a while to get back to 100%. I am going on a trip, at the end of this week, and I am taking them with me. It's just five days, and I'd normally have my cat friend (who loves these kitties nearly as much as I do, and always refuses pay) check on them every day, but she's also going out of town. Dunhill and Silver act like three miles in the car is murder, so I'm sure 450 miles will be just fine. I have bought new carriers that are made for the car and have seatbelt attachments and pads. I'm assuming they will eventually settle down? Also, my orientation for volunteering at the local SPCA Kitty City (where I got my two monsters) is set for September 7th. I am excited about it!
  11. He certainly seems to need the external heating.
  12. Could you imagine trying to find matched sets of NOS tubes for these sorts of things?
  13. How firm is the puck when you empty the basket? it should come out in one piece and retain very little moisture. Also, Dan's questions!
  14. How did I not know that this movie existed? Gardiner is my favorite Beet conductor: those metronome marks that Beet put on the page were important!
  15. I've read the comics a couple times. I am hesitant to watch the show (I still haven't finished Good Omens, and I love that book [I mean, shit, I have a Neil Gaiman tattoo], and the Amazon adaptation is VERY good, but it's still weird to see it on a screen when I used to just have it in my head). I really, really like Garth Ennis, but I refuse to watch Preacher. So take that for what it's worth.
  16. Something for watch fans. Why did he feel the need to write down the serial number that is printed right there? I have that pen, so I guess it does't matter.
  17. I'm not reflected there, so probably not?
  18. Those would be idiosyncratic chrono decisions. I approve!
  19. Poor bugger. He doesn't even have any paunchy middle aged dudes.
  20. Probably only $750,000, if the paunchy middle aged dudes are included.
  21. The 1931 really is a great looking watch.
  22. Too many IT support organizations have come to believe that they are the boss instead of being there to the make sure that the mission of the organization can be completed. I've found this at every level, and I've been pretty high up the totem pole in IT support. It's a shame.
  23. I'm sorry your IT department sucks. The unwillingness to learn is a lot more common than actual technical issues, in my experience, and we all know how common actual technical issues are. Good luck selling the laptop, it's certainly a nice one.
