Randomness XVIII: Ex-Vee-Triple-Eye


Recommended Posts

Andi's home. On a low sodium diet for the foreseeable future, which .. right now? That's just a whole LOT of fun.. I foresee a lot of salad until we get the well hooked up. >.<

But he's home, and Ritzy!Hospital can go *nope, you're just going to have to make up your own..* themselves. Good!Hospital, however... they are acceptable, and they can stay.

 

*sigh* Baked chicken is at least pretty easy, and goes with salad, and sandwiches, and... and we have a lot of salt-free blends for flavour.

Hercule Poirot is Belgian, is he not?

And Belgium is in Europe, is it not?

And the Creme de Menthe, what hue is it, if not green?

Good to hear he's home.

As for the low sodium...

 

I almost never add salt to my food, most contains enough salt as it is.

Use fresh herbs or buy separate dried herbs/powders to mix at will without salt.

 

Speaking of food....

( Shamelessly pluggs WOOF's Food Log in the post.)

 

Wednesday's Dinner

 

A simple Dutch dish this time...

Beetroots boiled topped with raw onion, boiled potatoes with gravy and Beef Tartar.

Thursday's Dinner

 

PIZZA!

For me: Half with Tex Mex Chicken, Mushrooms and Cheese ( add chilisauce to it when eating!) Half with Mushrooms and Danish Blue Cheese.

 

For my Girl: Salami, Olives, Anchovies and Cheese.

 

Oldest Vixen had half a pizza like my girl with Salami and half like me with the Tex Mex Chicken.

Has Reaper not released anything from the Cyber Metal fast palette yet?

 

Not yet.

 

That one seems to be the forgotten  thing from VCon last year.

 

SWEET! YouTube Music finally has the Rammstein catalog.

G.R.F.F.N Food Log:

 

Stardate: 20220310

 

 

Back to the sandwich factory. . .

07099D3A-2D87-45AE-864F-D7C55088D761.thumb.jpeg.2b7ecd9ae9444d69efc792fe5665dc82.jpeg

Glass of Milk — Lettuce, Swiss, Black Forest Ham, Bread and Butter Pickled “Stackers”, and Roma Tomato, on that artesano bread. 
 

The rest of the Roma tomato and a sliver of the Swiss cheese were served on the side, sprinkled with Black Pepper. 
 

That day’s sandwich celebrated finally! getting my talons on the long, flat, pickles called stackers. They’ve been out of stock for months. They just slice the cucumber the long way instead of making small disks , and it is sorta great for sandwiching. 
 

I am within a week of being caught up with my food logs. Never going to catch that Wolf, alas.

I thought of it pretty much immediately since I live at UTC+10 (UTC+11 during fake time, but that doesn't matter). So the date change would happen for me at around 10am local.

 

An extension to my objection: assuming business hours are adjusted to locally appropriate times (assuming based on current timezones), I'd be working 22:30 - 07:00. If I start work on Friday, does that count as a weekday shift or weekend? And what about public holidays?

 

Hmm, a couple of thoughts on this.  First, what if we decoupled the day from the date and, instead of the day changing in the middle of the night, days were marked from sunrise to sunrise (or sunset to sunset).  It is Friday from when the sun rises (or sets) until it rises (or sets) again.  Yes, that means that when a new day starts will vary somewhat, depending on if the sun rises at 6:33 or 6:47 current local or whatever.  The day wouldn't flip from Friday to Saturday, even if the date changed at what is currently 11:30 local according to kristof's World Clock TM.  Lawn guys (and other people up before dawn) will go to work extremely late on Sunday night to start work on Monday; but this isn't functionally much different from people that start a shift at 11pm currently.

 

Second, people already have to adjust if they want to participate in something centered elsewhere.  If you want to take part in the NYSE, you need to be up from 9:30 to 16:00 EST, regardless of your local time.  The scientists working on the Spirit and Opportunity NASA Martian missions had to be on Martian time for months, slowly desynchronizing their schedules with the rest of the world by 40 minutes a day.  Assuming kristof's World Clock TM,  your phone or computer will tell you that it is 23:47 on March 18, regardless of what the sun is doing in your part of the sky.  If you have a bill or assignment due at 00:00 March 19, you have 13 minutes left to get that sorted.  That's assuming that the entity in question isn't making local allowances for some reason; your local water utility might schedule payments in a way that accounts for local end of Friday we mentioned earlier.  More things could be like mortgage payments: it's due on the 1st, but isn't late until the 10th (or whatever).  If you're taking remote classes from MIT, you just have to be on MIT time.

 

Third, for the people #blessed enough to get public holidays off or pay boosts for weekend work, you'd still get that just keyed to the day, not the World Clock TM. You'd get Monday off for Memorial Day, even if that bridged between May 28 and 29th where you are.  Saturday and Sunday are "weekend" days for folks with a M-F schedule.  It might now be March 19th, but your day started as a Friday and it ends as a Friday.

 

I had to make a bunch of appointments for things yesterday and, thinking out it this morning, I realized that scheduling something for 3:00 pm on a day in September is pretty meaningless.  Yes, it's a thing that I have coming up, but it's more relevant to know that I am doing that thing today 5 hours from now.  My appointment could be at 6230:00 o'clock, and if my phone shows me that it's currently 1823:40, I know I have a while.

 

Anyway, my ideas are probably not better than what we have, but it was fun to think about how kristof's idea might work.

This is apparently how the ancient people of Terah reckoned time — Sunset to Sunset. 
 

 

 

You are reinventing the wheel a little bit.

We're having a  meeting in a few minutes,  the manager asked if we wanted the lights on or off. I replied 'it doesn't matter, I can go to sleep either way.' ::P:

So I guess there is a PowerPoint or a video to watch ? Slides?  I remember meetings like that.
