  1. Our Schnauzer, Tehya

    OG, It sounds terrible to say, but I suffered more through the loss of a pet than I have with close relatives. Pets are part of the fabric of our lives. Their passing leaves a huge hole in our very existence. Everything in the home, from their favourite spots, to their toys, to their clumps of shed hair that you keep finding months after they are gone, just keep tearing open that wound in your heart. I hope Tehya rallies back from this, but if he does step on that rainbow bridge, know that he'll be waiting for you on the other side.
  2. SpaceX Falcon Heavy test flight

    I laughed out loud when I saw that. Makes me wonder if there's a towel somewhere in that car, too
  3. SpaceX Falcon Heavy test flight

    I watched the live stream and was pretty much gobsmacked by the entire event from the takeoff, to the booster landings, to deployment of the space-suited Starman in the Tesla roadster with those live images of Earth in the background. Truly a remarkable time to be alive and be able to witness this event. Here's the simultaneous booster landing with the sound of the double sonic booms: Here's the Starman in the car with Earth in the background: Too bad the core booster ran out of fuel and crashed into the ocean, but they learned something for next time, so that's good.
  4. Saturday

    To paraphrase Kubrick's movie 2010: "My God. It's full of snow!" At least that's what I said when I looked at my driveway just now. Been snowing like crazy all day.
  5. What you been up to lately?

    Beauty contrails! I love contrails.
  6. Tuesday

    Warmish, but with high winds. The high winds will bring heavy snows later tonight. Shaping up to be a classic "Alberta Clipper" system that no doubt will wreak havoc along the highways and byways across the prairies. And to my friends in Montana, North Dakota, and Minnesota ... you're welcome
  7. Monday

    Mornin'. Just coming out of a cold snap the last few days. Like CJ says, it's Monday. Blergh.
  8. Mort Walker has died

    Drew cartoons for 70 years ... that's what I call doing what you love and getting paid for it Thanks for the laughs, Mort
  9. Friday

    -11C/12F. Not horribly cold, but annoying all the same. On the other hand, it is Friday, so that's good

    IL-2 Sturmovik runs fine on my Win10 rig. I'm running of IL-2 I bought on Steam then added the SAS mod. Just fired it up a week or so a go and flew a coop mission with a buddy in Texas. And this is after I upgraded my PC from Win7 to Win10 just before I flew it. Absolutely no problems. Now, I cannot say if IL-2: Cliffs of Dover works on Win10 because I haven't tried that yet, and don't intend to because the AI in multiplayer online is pretty stupid and makes for boring dog fights.
  11. Wednesday

    Warmed up here. Should reach 40F today.
  12. Iconic voice. Will be missed.
  13. Friday

    Morning. Well, it ain't what I'd call picnic weather here. -11F but feels like -24F with the wind chill. And dark. Getting only 8-ish hours of sunlight this time of year. Welp, enjoy your day and pass the vitamin D.
