For the next few weeks, the Okeanos Explorer will be doing work they livestream again - 15 planned dives between now and May 19th, streaming from roughly 3 pm to midnight Eastern time, the days they're on. Check out the link below for what they're looking at (seamounts in the Central Pacific Basin), what they hope to find, some of the folks who'll use the info they gather, and like that.

I know what I will be watching. :)

This may well be the cuppa for some of you. Well worth checking out.
Perseverant is live on DriveThru RPG. Very short version: collaborative, GMless story game that focuses on surviving a harsh wilderness.

I know a lot of folks, especially those in +Meguey Baker, +Jason Cordova, and +Jason Morningstar 's circles have been asking about it since it has been shipped out to backers recently.

Now's your chance to check it out! Let me know if you have any questions, happy to answer.

This is a short post about New Orleans' recent removal of a historical monument. Actually, it's a short gripe about the language of reporting on such things. News reports tend not to show or quote the inscription on the monument's base. And my feeling is that when you see it, a whole lot of the controversy just evaporates.

Hey! Would you like some good health news from me? If so, you're set, as I have some to share!

+Frances Acheson took me to the cardiologist this afternoon. It was just over two months ago that I spent several days in the hospital thanks to a hypertensive episode. Today the doctor looked me over, reviewed my logs, and said that he wants to schedule my next visit with him for a year from now (barring crises, of course).

Diet, medication, the Sit and Be Fit exercise regimen...it all adds up, clearly. We talked about possibilities for building on what I'm able to do now, and he had a great anecdote about someone he knows. That guy went from about my condition now through determined improvements to, four years later, being the state heavyweight weight lifter in his age bracket. I don't aspire to that in particular, but it was encouraging. :)

Progress! It's a great thing! I am so, so pleased about this. It's the best kind of incentive to keep working at all the rest.

This is the fourth of four music posts for the week, where I point happily at new-to-me music. This is from the sixth album by Barock Project, who turn out to be guys from Modena, Italy. Like Cast, White Willow, and Golden Caves, they've been listening to a lot of bands I like out of the history of progressive and art rock, and then doing interesting things of their own.

One minor note: all these bands sing in English. All have English-language or bilingual website. In two of the four cases, the website's English is much worse than the band's lyrics - clearly machine-translated and not smoothed at all by anyone with more clues. Odd, and something I hope they fix.
