Sweet, you can debug IE11 (and Spartan, soon) via the Chrome debug protocol (and DevTools): http://bit.ly/1O5jPvX - kudos to the IE team for building and releasing this!

Family History!
Our friend and colleague, David Pittman invited us over to his place this weekend to document a bent tree on his property near New Liberty. This area is in the corridor of the original Military Road traveled by the Benge Detachment on the Trail of Tears. We are told that there are several more ...

We all have them, and now's the time to make them both hacker-proof and easier to manage.

Lunar Landing---
Many of you might notice I've posted two similar photographs today taken after the total eclipse this weekend.  I struggled within over which to post, so I gave in and posted both.  This one taken in landscape mode shows less separation between the moon and the juniper in the foreground but shows the effect of the moon kissing the mountain.  In contrast, the earlier post in portrait orientation shows the moon more separated from the earth.  Which do you prefer?

The yellow tit, orFormosan yellow tit,[2](Parus holsti) is a species ofbird in the Paridae family. It is endemic to centralTaiwan.
Its natural habitat ismontane temperate forest.

It has a restricted range and small population, and appears to be declining due to large-scale capture for export by the wild bird trade, so it is classed as Near Threatened by the IUCN.

Why You Can't See the Milky Way in the Spring Night Sky

http://bit.ly/1CGbHvo

Now that the bright moon has moved out of the evening sky, skywatchers have a great chance to view the early-spring stars. And yet, even stargazers who are far from the scourge of light pollution will notice that there is something missing from the current view of the Northern Hemisphere sky.

It's the Milky Way.

Even under dark and pristine skies, you would have great difficulty seeing it, as it now appears to run almost completely around the horizon. Normally appearing as a faint, irregular ribbon of light spanning the sky, the Milky Way usually can be seen at most times of the year, provided that the night sky is very clear and moonless. (However, it can never be seen in brilliantly lit big cities, such as New York.)

The best time of the year to see the Milky Way is during the late summer and early fall, when its brightest portions run from the southwest to the northeast parts of the sky and arch nearly overhead.

Running Ubuntu 14.04 on the Rasberry Pi 2.

I recently got a Raspberry Pi 2... with the ARMv7-based BCM2709 processor (still 35 bucks!)
  
There is new community-maintained image of Ubuntu for the Pi.  It combines the released 14.04 distribution with a PPA containing kernels and firmware which work on the Raspberry Pi 2.  It is a working minimal ubuntu-standard image using a Linux 3.18 kernel.  For full desktop, you can install XFCE (xubuntu-desktop) or LXDE (lubuntu-desktop).   w00t.

I'm giving Lubuntu a spin... whenever my microSD card arrives

instructions for running Ubuntu on the Raspberry Pi 2 model B: 
https://wiki.ubuntu.com/ARM/RaspberryPi

#Ubuntu #Pi
Raspberry Pi. With the release of the Raspberry Pi 2 Model B and its ARMv7-based BCM2709 processor, it is now possible to run Ubuntu directly on the Raspberry Pi. Note that the information on this page currently only applies to the Raspberry Pi 2, not the original Raspberry Pi.

The bulging center of our Milky Way Galaxy rests on a pillar of light in this luminous skyscape. Recorded on September 22nd in dark South African skies, rivers of dust seem to flow downward from the galactic center towards Antares, yellowish alpha star of the constellation Scorpius, near the top of the scene. The brightest celestial beacon present is not a star at all though, but planet Venus, still dominant in the western sky after sunset. Of course, the pillar of light stretching upward from the horizon is Zodiacal light. Sunlight scattered by dust along the plane of the ecliptic creates the zodiacal glow, prominent in the evening after twilight during the southern hemisphere spring.
