Where would we be without Hayao Miyazaki? Not only has the Japanese filmmaker made the most beautiful animated movies in the world, he's made some of the most beautiful movies ever-- period. That's why it was so heartening to hear the recent news that, at seventy-four years of age (when most men golf or garden or simply groan), Miyazaki is making another movie. In the meantime, fans can experience a few gems from his career they most likely haven...

Not really an essay - it sort of is, but it's also just how my mind ponders and wanders.  But I rather think I'm on to something.

I was thinking whilst reading reviews for Lud in the Mist on Goodreads about why Fantasy novels are so trashed by literary elites.  Hope Mirrlees wrote this book long before there were tropes.  She wrote it thirty years before Tolkien took pen to paper to write Lord of the Rings. Let me digress a little before getting to the meat of my thought by giving a small aside; Tolkien was writing in this genre that Mirrlees was writing in bef...

It’s a game where you’re unlikely to meet other players, no one will win and it will take over four billion years to explore it all. And that’s why it’s the most anticipated title for decades.

Wow, it's been a month since I've posted.   That is what happens when you buy a new house and move.  I'm really not even back into the entire swing of normality yet - but I felt so guilty about leaving my lonesome photo blog on it's own for so long I thought I'd drop by and give it a little attention. So this was the next bit on our journey in Scotland.  This was quite wonderful as I'd heard about these Crannogs and I actually had he...

Okay tech people -- I love advice (and I mostly listen to you awesome people, too!) These are the options that Time Warner Cable has on offer for my modem (I use a NetGear Router on top of whatever this will be, this one down here will be bridged)  BUT; which one should I tell them I want??

Okay Network Gurus can this be done:

Is it possible to set up a home system where every room (that we choose) has a hardline?  Can you bridge multiple routers from one modem so each room has a hardline connection?

The ideal set up (if this is possible) is one modem and 4 or 5 routers w/ a hardline.

I would rather do this difficult thing than just have a sparse wifi signal with signal boosters in my new home.  Signal Boosters have never been very good/reliable and my new home is.... large, very very large.

Is this possible??

Umm, you may want to do something about this, Pacific Northwest.  You really probably want to get some infrastructure in place, or just move the hell away.

Read the whole article, it's really good, for one -- and packed with geology, so interesting - but also absolutely terrifying.

It honestly does not matter if it does not happen in your lifetime.  It will happen and it will be catastrophic - and it's going to happen, geologically, any second.  It's time to get some infrastructure in place to handle it.  I don't even live there!

Humans can be so weird.  Wearing blinders is no solution at all.

You know it's horrifically paradigm-shifting horrible when it's in the legends of the Native Americans and it wiped out a tribe.

So.  Much.  Hype.

If you've heard about this game get ready to be blown away.  If you've not heard about this game get ready to be really blown away.  This is literally a jaw-dropping experience.

This medieval castle in Cumbria is just a stately ruin now - but it was a Border Castle for centuries, a bastion against the wild Scots to the North.  At least that's how the English Heritage signs put it, sprinkled around the ruins of the castle to talk about it's history.   I have to admit I bristled quite a bit reading about it there and the obvious slant the historical panels describe - I'm not denying the Scots came down and rai...
