We don't like to talk about it, but there's a dark secret to living in Oregon: it rains a lot during winter.

And fall.

And spring.

I know. This probably took you by surprise. "Rain in Oregon? Who knew?" you say.

"But", I also hear you say, "as a computer geek, why should you care? It's not like you do any outdoors activities anyway."

And you'd be quite right.

However, the rain has an insidious side effect: it is also very green, and there are lots of trees around. And in the fall (when it rains - keep up with me for a moment, I'm trying to make a point) those trees also tend to shed all their leaves all at once.

And they invariably shed them right in your gutters. The damn bastards seem to actively aim for them. Trees, man.

Anyway, being a geek, and avoiding that great outdoors that pisses water and leaves all over you, you usually don't really notice until it's much too late. Namely when the gutters are overflowing with crap.

At which point you have to go up on the roof and blow that stuff away. With a weak-ass electric rechargeable blower, because if you are anything like me, you're just not manly enough for one of those big back-mounted gas-powered ones.

It's an exercise in futility, I tell you. It's easy enough if you do it while the leaves are all dry an they blow away if you just look at them sternly. But that's usually not when you really need to do it.

I think I have found the solution.

Hear me roar.

Breakfast today consists of an apple turnover followed by a chocolate croissant for dessert. Because vitamin chocolate.

I just watched Ex Machina for the first time. I don't know how I missed this one. Very well done. Great philosophical points, and from the beginning twinged my fear of AI. http://futureoflife.org/ Just sayin'.
