I've backed off caffeine use a lot, so what with the uncertain car situation on top of the relationship tension du jour and a tense commute, by the time I finished my corned beef hash wrap plate I felt exhausted and probably got to sleep ~9:30 last night. Watching a little Futurama before bed, I suddenly realized Leela's voice is sooo familiar ... turns out it's Katey Sagal, who of course we've heard a lot of in her role as Gemma Teller Morrow on Sons of Anarchy. Internet, including (or perhaps beca... (...more)

RDU crime heat maps Trulia RPD (but not Cary) cooperates with; RDU centers on ZIP 27605 Nox's "Sport" button - I was curious whether this basically switches turbo aspiration on, but no - aside from whatever it does to "tighten" steering, power-wise it just increases gas pedal response, so you rev up the engine faster (i.e. feed it more gas at the same pedal pressure vs. "sport mode" off). If the engine is turbo, it's "always on" turbo. * * * breakfast Every so often I revisit thi... (...more)

Gave verbal notice, although 2.5 months out there's a lot of work ahead of me still. My team seemed to appreciate the ample notice though. I love working in an organization that opens meetings with prayer. Reflecting on what I've learned from working here at The Good Job - it chokes me up to think of it that way, and remember what a contrast in liberation it was after 13 years at The Bad Job - anyway, I need to get back into more engineering-type project-oriented work. I get dangerously bored doing ro... (...more)

Stepping up the "motion" process, my main driver all along has been figuring out where exactly is safe to live if ALL the ice melts. Not just the ice caps - there are massive landlocked glacial sheets in Greenland, etc. too. A top Google result from NatGeo says 216 feet. Another high-ranked result says 230 feet (70 meters). A third source says there's overall about 80 meters of sea level bound in glacial ice, but dramatic sea level rise will undoubtedly erode softer surfaces, so a silty (relative) lowland ... (...more)

fon paid and payment accounts groomed CA: I noticed the Elite Deliverance Warbanner in the 100v100 rewards shop. For "balanced" type generals (e.g. Annika, Bogo, Syren), it gives +5% att AND def, +25 pierce, and has 1 forge slot which of course you'd forge with a bronze ingot stack of piercing (2500 guild coins). I also noticed a Shield of Endless Cycles among my gear, scored from random Ouroboros guild monster looting. It has no forge slots, but with 50 physical and 25 earth pierce it's effectively...
