I'm just that guy whose full name is Curtis Alan Jackson. I like Star Wars over Star Trek but Doctor Who before either. Love my sci-fi hard and always interested in time travel related stories (not as much alternative history). Enjoy reading about quantum physics and cosmology even if I can't understand the math. :) #FARP2018
I keep thinking about making a private sub-feed but then realize I probably would either post exactly the same kind of stuff there as here or stuff that probably shouldn't be posted. [FFers remember "those" rooms. ;-)] Ah, well. A brief mental flashback of simpler, easier days.
Ever get the feeling that you just know something is going to get all messed up and you just have to wait for the train to crash so it can be over? Our company is finally deciding to look into Slack and I get the feeling that most of the IT guys don't understand how it should be structured. But hey...they're the experts...right? Right?

I have an app that shows lightning strikes in and around your area. Last night we had a thunderstorm that seemed a bit...extra. The squares on the image below are 5K on each edge. For the quad that surrounds us, there were a cumulative 111 strikes in a five minute period. I mean, there were a lot over time but that's a bunch in the last five minutes!
Owner of house is getting bare spots in front of house covered with sod. (HOA was complaining.) Downside is that it's right outside my office window. The noise isn't the problem. I'm just too dam curious and keep watching them work. :)
How easily FB can make me stop and wonder about should I post something. In the FF days, we had rooms where we could be a bit more...open. Confession rooms and similar things. Now that I have the need/desire to post something of a more private nature, I'm pretty sure I'm not going to do it in any FB room. (Of course, maybe I just put too much trust in FF? Nah, probably not.)
I love good visuals. There's more than just the image below. --- Here's How America Uses Its Land "The 48 contiguous states alone are a 1.9 billion-acre jigsaw puzzle of cities, farms, forests and pastures." https://www.bloomberg.com/graphics/2018-us-land-use/
.@united I'm sitting on a plane about to take off and wonder why the Flight Map is behind the Direct TV "paywall". Seems a shame. Only thing I really want to watch. [From @StartWith0.]
Saw what I'm pretty sure was a large raccoon coming out of the trees near our house. I saw it. It saw me. We paused, staring at each other. Then it headed back into the woods. Mind you, this was 100 or more feet away but still.
My sometimes office mates ensuring my print job was properly completed.
I realized I was just about to make a comment starting with the phrase, "I don't want to seem like some kind of apologist but..." and then realized there was not going to be anything good coming out of the comment, regardless of my intent.
Getting ready to head bop my way through Dr. Dre's "The Next Episode" playing on YouTube Music in the background when I suddenly I realize I'm not hearing Snoop. Oh, it's David Axelrod's "The Edge". Right...sampling. :) Dr. Dre - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QZXc39hT8t4 and David Axelrod - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6pG_3jZxzlo

For the beer drinkers of Mokum, what's the one brand you always keep stocked in your fridge? While I'm always up for experimenting with new beers, what's your absolute, buy in quantity, always in the fridge choice?
Another Welcome to Florida for us: sugar ants. We've been using some alternative remedies (baking soda and cornmeal with a bit of sugar for bait) but they seem unstoppable. And since I really don't want to poison my SIL's cats, do any floof owners out there have ways they keep ants, etc. away without leaving poison traps for inquisitive kitties?
And annual review self assessment complete. Nothing like waiting until the last day. Also, I hate doing it.
