Apparently somebody knocked a screen out of a window and got out yesterday.  As of midnight (home time) the very well camouflaged Lila cat was still at large, and probably not feeling very happy with her decision (a couple rather serious rain showers passed through in the 7 hours or so she'd been out so far, and we're talking one of a pair of dedicated indoor house cats.)

Pretty frustrating being on the wrong side of the planet and there's nothing you can do other than say "stick a dish of food on the porch and some of the coffee sacks she loves to lay on next to them, and hopefully she'll get hungry and cold enough to remember where the house is."  Fingers crossed that she's simply waiting for the rain to stop so she can wander back, or figured she'd just start trying doors and somebody will call in the morning.

Beer vs. Coffee

and the creative process.  So I wonder how the coffee stout one of my local breweries just re-released would stack up?

80% Poly Lower?

Sounds interesting.  I'd be willing to give it a shot (heh).  Looks very well thought out, and requires no jig to complete.  Looks to be $100, plus some time with a dremil I guess.  May be something to play with down the road.

Acheivement Unlocked

Sit in the flight deck of a C17 in flight and chat with the pilot.  Pics when I have better than the worlds slowest interwebs.

Hurry Up

And wait.  In this case for a flight out of KAF.  First step in the journey home though, so it's a good thing.

Daily Dose of Cool

A series of photos of cartridges precisely cut in half.

Half the challenge is figuring out what most of them are (the ones pictured above are the most "normal" of the bunch.)
