Tried my hand at astrophotography last night. None of the Perseids meteors played along, but it was amazing.

Programmer living off the grid

"This place is nicely remote, and off the grid, relying on solar power. I only get 50 amp-hours of juice on a sunny day, and often less than 15 amp-hours on a bad day. So the whole house runs on 12 volt DC power to avoid the overhead of an inverter; my laptop is powered through a succession of cheap vehicle power adapters, and my home server runs on 5 volt power provided by a USB adapter."

This stuff has happened to 100s of brown men over the past 15 years, so can't really blame Trump.

2 things:
1) Morons like the woman in this tale are with us at all times and in all administrations.
2) I am no Trump fan, but interesting that the environment for the story is blamed forward somehow to Trump and not the actual administration, Obamanation.

Splurged on a new camera with a 400mm lens recently. Took it out to Lake Lynn in Raleigh and stumbled upon a red shouldered hawk about 5 minutes upon arriving. He patiently let me photograph him for about 10 minutes.

I thought I had caught him eating a worm. However, if you take a closer look, whatever he's eating has legs! I'm guessing its a small salemander.

Discovered the Sylvan Heights Bird Park in the middle of tobacco fields in Scotland Neck, NC. It's a treasure.
