@neauoire Nice! The fjords on the northern part of the South Island in New Zealand are on my bucket list along with that area. I am so landlocked now.

Needs a cleaning and a re-stain, this is what it looked like new.

The patio I did at church is holding up pretty well after 6 years, despite the apple tree doing its best to destroy it.

Okay there's something really cool I've just learned. If you are continuously recording air pressure e.g. as part of your home automation setup or a weather station then you should really check the data of the last 24h.
You should be able to spot the pressure wave from the volcanic explosion in Tonga earlier today.

It reached my setup in Kaiserslautern at about 20:30.

To minimize suffering and to maximize security were natural and proper ends of society and Caesar. But then they became the only ends, somehow, and the only basis of law — a perversion. Inevitably, then, in seeking only them, we found only their opposites: maximum suffering and minimum security.

@ParkerTechGuy Me and @mary go there, or the one in Evergreen, a few times a year. Great food and Evergreen has nice outdoor seating if the weather behaves.

@KarePatriot @MMA @SweetIceTea @pamby1 @watson @h53pilot @conservativechris @LaughterintheRain @Phil @Bleukitty @Andre My daughter has ASD and seemed to be developing normally with a few words and then regressed. I can’t think of anything that changed other than she got rounds of vaccines around that time. It is something that I wonder about.

@dazinism @cjd @TMakarios That does stink. The concept becoming mainstream has done some good though because people know they can get by with a lot less energy usage. People used to chop wood like madmen to make it through winter and I always thought they might be better off if they used it for insulation rather than burning it.

@Shameless Good song. Buffalo Springfield did one of their first acts in Aurora, Colorado at the club Hal Baby's. Hal Moore was the owner and long time local radio host(61 years) and he talked about how groovy that show was. You can hear Hal on the radio as they're driving up to the hotel in The Shining.

@cjd @TMakarios They have come along way. The sulfur compounds are the worst, carbon emissions to me are basically net zero. Still, you see so much acreage burn every year in wildfires and I always think about how many homes that could have heated and burned more efficiently.

@cjd @TMakarios There's a lot of good things about wood, but there are downsides. I'm not sure if there's enough to go around and emissions from it are pretty bad. Air quality sucks in an area where everyone is burning wood. Furnace designs can help with this somewhat. I've always wondered if we could grow enough dried algae pellets in the ocean and run them through modified coal plants.

@neauoire I’m going to keep researching and ask some friends for advice, but I’ll probably get one this week. From what I understand, PLC programs are rarely interchangeable, but if they could run Uxn, that might solve that problem.

@neauoire Some of them do. I haven’t picked one yet because I want to find the most compatible.
