The request is actually a gateway permission to determine if it's safe to ask the heavy questions (permission to borrow your soul and/or money)

CitiBike updated their software last week fixing all known problems, I was told.

Today I biked from 9th Ave/16th St. to 20th St./FDR.  When I arrived I docked my bike.  The yellow light turned on and didn't lock the bike.  I tried a few times, fail.  Time to find another station.  1st Ave/15th St. had 8 docks, so I docked there.  Yellow light turned on, never turned green.  But the bike seemed secured so I decided "whatever".

Later I checked my trip history and the bike was marked as returned at 20th St./FDR.  Sigh.

What, you have to pay more for the environment-destroying model?  This is an outrage.

The melancholy of seasons.

Winter: "Oh, it's 37 out.  It's so hot I might not need a jacket!"

Summer: "Oh, it's going to get down to 65 tonight?  Better get out my down."

Sad but true. However, the good doc did buy a nice portable AC so one room is nice!

With 14 hours of daylight and temperatures above 60 every day for the next 10 days, I think spring has finally arrived.

That was sudden.

I got some Vignelli subway map crops from http://superwarmred.com/.

I think the hardest part was unpacking all the frames.  I also had to draw a diagram and do some math to figure out the distance between the posters so that they'd be centered on the part of the wall above the fireplace that sticks out, but it worked out quite nicely.  (I did the math, marked the positions of the sticky nails, applied them all, then hung everything up.  Planning works!)

These "sticky nails" are amazing:

http://www.command.com/wps/portal/3M/en_US/NACommand/Command/Products/Catalog/~/Command-Sticky-Nail-Wire-Back-Hanger?N=5924736+3294529207+3294774820&rt=rud

They are easy to apply (I thought "that's it?" approximately 6 times), and they come down just fine (I did a trial run to eyeball the height).  They also come with an extra set of tape so you can use each twice, and little velcro strips so you can level the posters and stick them flush against the wall, as the frames naturally want to hang angled down.

I'm making a note here: huge success.

If they build a new subway line affecting any of these stations, then it will be nostalgia art instead of realistic art.  But I'm not holding my breath.

"When you have to go, you sit down at a waste collection station, and a computer guided arm would connect a hose to your valve and open it. This can be designed so that at no time in this process is anything on the outside of the valve, the hose, or your body exposed to feces. All the feces goes into the hose. When you have been emptied, the valve is closed, the hose retracts, and its interior is cleaned." #ShitHNSays

This is the 21st century. We should be able to do a lot better. We should be able to have our sphinctors replaced with an artificial valve. This should be a standard size (or one of several standard sizes if one size does not fit all) and standard mechanism. When you have to go, you sit down at ...

Yeah.  She doesn't hold her wand at a good angle for a cover photo though.  Only Chinatsu's amateur wielding works.

(I was going to take the screenshot where's she's scratching her back and making a funny face, but then I'd have to explain it to all my non-anime friends, so this is the non-ideal compromise.  Maybe I'll troll pixiv for something better.)

The employees at REI are very friendly and helpful. I always have to remind myself not to subconsciously avoid them like I normally do, because they can usually answer my question quickly and in a way that doesn't make me feel awkward. They also do a good job of keeping all sizes in stock; nice when you're trying on shoes and wonder what a half-size in either direction would be like. All in all, very competent, and of course the whole co-op thing is nice too.
