    Empire in Decline

    I understand, in a democracy it would not be OK to invent different rules just to keep people from voting, or have them (moslly people with darker skin color) wait in line for 10+ hours to vote. But it is interesting to follow the process.

    Coronavirus

    The message from the Swedish authorities is that we will keep having restrictions for at least another year. And the infection rate is on the up.

    Coronavirus

    If it kills around 1000 persons in the USA every day, I am sure it will dominate both the lives of the deceased and their relatives and friends?

    Empire in Decline

    Exactly like the Russian vaccine then? It doesn't really matter if it works or not, or is safe, as long as Putin can say they were the first in the world. Perhaps USA will be #2 (before the election day)?

    Trumps campaign is not about facts, it is about speading doubt, divide and conquer. I have seen the inside of the internet bubble that some people are residing in, quite fascinating.

    Empire in Decline

    It will be interesting to hear what Trump has to say about Navalny, will it be the first time he will say anything critical about Russia/Putin? (It is now confirmed by three independent different laboratories in France, Germany and Sweden that it was Novichok.) Or did the cafeteria at the Tomsk...

    So, the president of the USA gives recommendations on how to nore or less commit suicide, while the dictator Lukasjenko of Belarus actually gives somewhat meaningful advices to his population. I think it is a slightly worrying situation.

    Something Random

    We have soft water. There hasn't been any maintenance in the last 47 years that I know of, but perhaps we should? I just read the red warning sign at the bottom of the picture, that the safety valve needs some care now and then to prevent the heater from blowing up. Perhaps I should read up a...

    It has, I guess they had another view on quality back then. We will see hoe long it lasts, most of our neighbours heaters have passed away. Proof, it got signed off on march 30, 1965: :)

    Coronavirus

    It is kind of good news I guess, but important to keep the rates down so you do not overload the healthcare system.

    Here is a fresh climate report from the US government. https://nca2018.globalchange.gov It's not a very comforting read, but at least it seems like they understand the problem now. That's a good start.

    Audio Equipment

    There"s no shortcut to the perfect sound ;) The basic function is to get great sound, if you can't get that, every other function is a waste. But it looks like it actually has balanced XLR outputs? Unfortunately I can't afford one myself. :(

    The Glasnost was happening back in 1985, maybe that is the reason for the difference? Don't you have a atomic clock in the vicinity you can use as a time server?

    Hmm, I just realised how much I miss the sound from the actuators on my old Seagate Cheetah 15K.3, when they were hammering down the bytes on the disk. That was almost better feedback than a LED.

    HOT

    "Hot" is +25C or more for me. :) I prefer temperatures between +15 and +22 in the summer. This year has been very warm and dry and this week has been "hot" with +30 a few days in a row. We have A/C, but it's made and used for heating, and I haven't had to use it for cooling yet. But it's always...

    Happy Holidays (2017)

    In december we have the sunrise around 9.40 and sunset 14.20. It's a bit boring for a few months when it's dark both when you go to work in the morning and when you leave work in the evening.

    Beverages

    I agree. But I didn't know what it was, or the percentage, before I tasted it. I didn't see anything unusual. It was more like a normal herb liquor.

    Beverages

    Yes, it actually tasted a bit worse than cough medicine. :) I don't know exactly how this batch was born, but seems like a real hassle to make proper Absinth yourself, according to Wikipedia. It was interesting to try, but it's not a new favourite if I put it that way.

    I've just tasted 2*4 cl of 85% home made absinth. It tasted mostly like cough medicine (not so much of alcohol as expected), but was very inspiring.
