You know that video making the rounds, supposedly demonstrating amazing "lost" archery skills? Our archery expert shoots it full of holes. Continue reading →

Shielding Fails!
Continued discussion of subspace physics. Subspace is an odd set of the laws in our dimension, specifically it is missing the electromagnetic force, or half the electroweak interaction . This means that things that rely on that interaction in our dimension ...

Sub-space Equations: Velocities and Depth
As promised from the previous post: Equations. First let's start with an equation describing the relative velocities between normal space and subspace. Where K is the constant of about 8.24x10^23 kg^-1m^2. vn is the velocity relative to all influential grav...

Jobs, Again and More
Probably the hardest thing to do from Hilo: track down a job on the mainland, and get hired. So if you know anyone with a software position open and willing to hire me, then let me know. In the meantime let me talk about something else. I believe earlier in...

Progress Stunted
As a modern man, and a person living in our world I understand the need for tolerance, but of what should we be tolerant? And where should we draw the line? Tolerance is along the same lines as endurance. There are many things which we must endure day-to-da...

Sub-space Equations: Drift and Pointing
This post is continued from the previous one , talking more about depth and a bit about velocities. Generally a well pointed ship will come out tangential to the orbit of a gravity well, and fall into the correct orbit with only minor modifications. Of cour...

Ummm... thanks? If you have suggestions I would be open for discussion +Randall Lee Reetz . Also, it is not supposed to be scientific, but it is setting up a repeatable system for a science fiction story. I have nothing to experiment on except for existing stories and other people's thoughts.

Fun Physics and Fiction
Time is the enemy. Dramatic events are unfolding, but will our hero be able to save the world, yet again, in time? Used to dramatic purpose time is a very useful tool as there are very few people who haven't been up against a deadline, real or constructed. ...

Archery
So we really haven't been fencing much. I think I will have to read my own posts on fencing before getting back into it. We have a really odd schedule right now that is coming to an end come the end of this month. In the meantime we have picked up archery. ...

Christian Fencer, runner and Engineer(Software, Computer)
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.
