  1. Well, shoot! Here I was a little sad that things hadn't started yet, and was stocking up anticipating starting one of the boxes, but I guess I need to read more often. Maybe I'll push for starting a box next time since Michaels had so much on sale today, and it's more than I'll ever use.

    I saw that in a cartoon once. Chinese girl learns she was adopted and goes to China to meet her real parents. Turns out they were blonde Americans who just loved China so much that they had plastic surgery done on their daughter, then decided to move to China and gave her up for adoption. They worked in some electronics factory.

    Matlab takes a surprisingly long time to install.
  4. LOL! Had the exact opposite opinion!

    Looking at a Sunday full of house work. Sprinklers, faucet, fish tank, pay bills. Huh. Very water oriented there. Then, if I have free time, try to chop up a 3gb CSV file into chunks that Excel can open, using only the files and software corporate security allows me to use. Access has already failed me, as the files are too large for it to even link to. A 10kHz sample rate for four+ hours makes a rather large amount of data.

    Wheels on the ground. Been a looooong week. One day off, then back at it.
  7. Don't ask me anything. Tell me something.

    And now I’ve got an image of a hedonistic @pcktlnt, wearing a toga and a crown of ivy, lounging on one of those low and long couches, with a pewter pitcher of heavy cream slowly pouring it down his front. Thanks brain. I wanted to take a nap. Looks like I’ll be awake for awhile.

    Try Phoenix airport with the alignment of spring break, spring training, and a NASCAR race! Toss in the standard infrequent traveler, and you have the luxurious warmth so deserved of those who bring enough carryon luggage to fill two overhead bins. And I wish I was joking. Took eight trays.

    My daughter's favorite color at age 3 was "sparkley". Brigid will likely happen to like that at some point. Then mine went pink, purple, blue, turquoise, green, blue, purple, and now turquoise at age 12. So I'd be careful with the room painting projects, lest the winds change too fast for completion. Aside, as I was writing this, wondered if my daughter was basing her preferences not on a particular color, but her stated preference derives from her favorite shirt. Wow. Interesting insight. Time to dress, finish packing, then head back home. It's been a long work week.

    Successful test! Lost a lot of bolts and nuts at impact, and ripped up some cable harnessses. Nothing unexpected. Made a nice big divot in the dirt. Now heading out of the drop zone to get lunch, then maybe over to the hanger to see what I can get worked.

    Tonight’s restaurant has a mobile salad bar. They bring a tilted lazy Susan with lettuce in the middle and veggies in an array around it then make you a custom salad. Went with the soup. Too much pressure. Drop is on again for the morning, so another 3am wake up. Took a long walk around the river area to get some exercise, and so maybe I will have some restful sleep tonight. Tossed a bit last night, and kept kicking the covers off. Probably should turn the temp down tonight. Will probably be a very long day tomorrow. Then I get to go home! *crosses fingers for low winds and no clouds*

    So still hitting the local food places here to avoid places I could eat at home, and last time I was here they kept grouping two restaurants together in the ads. Same owners, but I was thinking different foods. Nope. Same menus, so I’m basically trying the same place twice. Oh well. Wouldn’t mind much, but the locals rave about it, but the food is middle road bland. Nothing special. I feel bad for not liking it more, but not much I can do on that. I’m sure they’d be disappointed with my youth-based haunts.

    Whelp, test is cancelled for tomorrow now too. Decision time: a) try to be busy working from the hotel room on things or b) take a day off. Just checked, and I’m full on hours for the week... which makes the choices harder. There’s no movie out that I want to see. Yuma isn’t a great tourist spot. Well, pooty.

    Today will not be science day for me. Winds got too high just as we reached the drop zone. Convoy turned around and headed back. Maybe tomorrow. Hope tomorrow. I don’t want to change flight plans again. Supposed to be an air show here too, and that’s eating up available hotels. Came back to the hotel and promptly slept for three hours. Feel much better now.

    Looks like no livestream of the drop test. Bummer. You can track flight NASA 808 at FlightAware. That’s a chase plane following the drop. If you’re bored.
