Tweets for the week of October 4th, 2009

  • Not only can I not concentrate, I also can't sleep. #
  • How Boulder became bikeable. This is at least half the reason I want to live there: (video by Bikes Belong) #
  • qGIS 1.3.0 is named after one of Saturn's moons (Mimas), and it's not crashing on my computer. That's good. #
  • I'm so tired of hating the world. #
  • Getting extraterrestrial GIS working always takes too long. It's like they think the Earth is the center of the universe or something. #
  • Tomorrow, I am for to be mapping some tectonics of the ices. Again. For the third time. #
  • Carl Sagan: "The sky calls to us. If we do not destroy ourselves, we will one day venture to the stars." Talk about a big 'if'… #
  • I really don't look forward to coffee any more. #
  • I wish I could make an update about something more personal than the geospatial databases which are giving me a headache., but I can't. #
  • Two interplanetary exploration show-stoppers: Pu-238 RTGs and DSN bandwidth #
  • Back to mapping, and the land of the living… right after I get some coffee. #
  • Snow returning to Siberia; Europe & the Niger delta twinkling in a thin sliver of moonless night; southern ocean vortices: I see you, Earth. #
  • I remind me of an asshole. #
  • Okay, I'm getting dizzy from the lineaments now. Maybe that's enough for now. #
  • If the Earth had an intelligence agency, I would totally interview with them. #
  • I knew there was some reason I kept putting off mapping. These overalls have never felt this loose before. #
  • "Accidentally" spiced everyone out at dinner with bean sprouts+chiles+garlic. #
  • More than 1000 intersections to classify, at 30 seconds each that's… still 8+ mind-numbing hours. Ugh. #
  • Huh, I wonder where all that mapping I did earlier today went. *poof* ERROR, ERROR, ERROR. p.o.s. 🙁 #
