I loved those books. I wouldn't call the ones I had programming though they made computers seem more inaccessible and mysterious at the same ti e as exposing their parts.

Fat Burning HIIT Workout with Warm Up Cardio - Find the free workout @ https://www.fitnessblender.com/…/fat-burning-hiit-workout-w… Featured comment/review from Notypos: "I think I found Fitness Blender in 2014 by looking for a kettlebell workout on YouTube, and have loved your workouts ever since. Although you receive many well-deserved kudos and compliments, one thing that I love about Fitness Blender that is rarely mentioned is the helpful descriptions customized for each video. I find that the description, advice, and FAQs on each workout page are a great mental tool to prepare myself for each workout, as well as to come away with valuable knowledge about health and fitness in general. Thank you for your workouts and your friendly and helpful attitudes!" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MG8DJpN-35g

Pluto’s Mysterious, Floating Hills

The nitrogen ice glaciers on Pluto appear to carry an intriguing cargo: numerous, isolated hills that may be fragments of water ice from Pluto’s surrounding uplands. These hills individually measure one to several miles or kilometers across, according to images and data from NASA’s New Horizons mission.

The hills, which are in the vast ice plain informally named Sputnik Planum within Pluto’s ‘heart,’ are likely miniature versions of the larger, jumbled mountains on Sputnik Planum’s western border. They are yet another example of Pluto’s fascinating and abundant geological activity.

Because water ice is less dense than nitrogen-dominated ice, scientists believe these water ice hills are floating in a sea of frozen nitrogen and move over time like icebergs in Earth’s Arctic Ocean. The hills are likely fragments of the rugged uplands that have broken away and are being carried by the nitrogen glaciers into Sputnik Planum. ‘Chains’ of the drifting hills are formed along the flow paths of the glaciers. When the hills enter the cellular terrain of central Sputnik Planum, they become subject to the convective motions of the nitrogen ice, and are pushed to the edges of the cells, where the hills cluster in groups reaching up to 12 miles (20 kilometers) across.

In the aftermath of my first three sessions of Night's Black Agents: Shadow Lords of Kowloon...we've made the front page of the papers! Not pictured: agents Jon Chow and Ali fleeing like mad from wall-climbing dhampir fiends.

Looking up from down under: New Norcia, Western Australia | ESA
ESA’s 35 m-diameter dish antenna at New Norcia, Western Australia, glows with reflected laser light in this photo, taken by Dylan O’Donnell, a photographer based in Byron Bay, New South Wales, Australia.
 
The deep-space tracking antenna provides critical communications with missions such as Rosetta, Mars Express and Gaia—all voyaging millions of kilometers away in the Solar System.
 
Next week, ESA will officially inaugurate a new, smaller 4.5-m satellite-tracking antenna recently built at the station (just a few hundred meters from the big dish). It can quickly and with high precision lock onto and track launch vehicles, such as Europe’s Ariane 5, Vega and Soyuz, and satellites during their critical initial orbits, up to roughly 100,000 km out.

Hey +John Forrest, check it out. I experimented with a couple of Inn builds and learned some important tricks about constructing large buildings and interior balconies. I also played around with a city-over-sewers build and a city-over-catacombs build.
