I need to make one of these, my releases are sloppy and preventing me from practicing everything else.
One of the oldest problems in archery has been in getting a clean and consistent release. A bad release can ruin an otherwise perfect shot. Leather gloves, tabs, even rings of metal, bone,and stone have all been used to augme...

Looks like an interesting talk. Will hopefully come up with a few questions.

This is how you should hire programmers. I would definitely enjoy this process more than trying to do the white board, brain teaser things. I especially like the small interesting project idea. So if you know anyone who needs a software engineer, recommend this idea, and if it isn't too much trouble, recommend me as well.

Uploading some pictures of our new, well okay it's been a few months, coffee table. I came up with the idea and did all the measurements and Jessie did a great job cutting and finishing! It isn't perfect, but it does hold puzzle projects quite well. #sketchup

This looks interesting. I hope it does well as it seems it would benefit getting people into space too.

Isn't it great when the sky clears up and the telescope can see clearly now? Gives me more time to work on work and not have to baby-sit the guider staying on a star.

I operated UKIRT last night! I don't think I broke the telescope. I will have to see when I go into work this morning.

Didn't break it, got 3.5 hours out of it, so that is 3.5 hours more than if the telescope had sat closed.

Introduction
I work with two telescopes near the summit of Mauna Kea. As a software engineer I am not up there everyday but I do test hardware and software at the summit.

In down time I help out at church, run, fence, hike, read, and play some computer games

With their move out of the long time spot by the Waiakea pond, Miyo's has drastically improved decor and a bit better service. Gone are the green plastic lawn chairs and cheap plastic tables. The new furniture is all of the same type, if a bit large and clunky, it is a large step up. Unfortunately moving away from the pond means it doesn't have any good views. With the move service is on the upward swing as they have a few new servers (though they are still learning the craft) but it is jam packed and I have seen many potential dinner parties turned away at the door. We've managed to reserve a seat an hour before showing up. If you want to have some excellent Japanese food that isn't just sushi, and with a Hilo twist I would suggest reserving a table the day before.

Very good food and service. Always a favorite place to go with a group of people. And 24 hours means 24 hours, except the one day a month of deep cleaning. They keep clean through the rest of the month too.

This was an excellent place, plenty of good, well-made food for a reasonable price. We will be going back again.

I am sure it is great but I was looking for a laundromat, not a dry cleaning place.
