The benefit of reading, to name a few, these three in our mother tongue. All of them, of course, books that our judges read, and understood.
I really like the figure in the ecliptic–equatorial coordinates section. How equinoxes are the points in which us (Earth) change from travelling above->below (spring) or below->above (autumn) the equatorial plane. And how the 23.5° angle causing seasons is seen!
In the author's words: On the benefit of doubt and the critical thinking in a world that puts value in sentimentalism, in being absolutely certain —if possible, very loud too–, the polarization and the “every opinion is respectable” mantra.
In my words: on the dangers of bypassing justice to judge people, turning the “innocent unless you prove me guilty” into a “guilty unless you prove me innocent”, and the dangers of having 10.000 idiots in the need of a flag to wave.
Had an afternoon and got to switch on again my old Doepfer Dark Energy. I have a thing for the analogue, self oscillating filters' kick drums.
Here's a small (and dark) test. Again, using just Audacity to record and mix it.
And Audacity is all any amateur would need!
So, I'm back home. It's sad to see how everyone, with no exception, was wearing a mask even on an empty street at 1am but at the same time this is one of the most affected (if not the most) regions.
Now yes, it's time to WFH and disconnect, leaving an important message from the roads in France. Click.
More than 1.100 km after, it's dinner time somewhere here in Belgium, just passed the Germany border! ½ it's already done fuck yes!
Already in Denmark. The trip was a bit of alright!
This mode should be called Database Debugging Time. And I'm just UTC+2 at the moment, but imagine using a timezone with offsets of 30/45 minutes!
I really like time. It's such a popular but very little known concept. Countries, timezones and offsets, solar time vs standard time (for some countries the shift is big – e.g. Spain, directly below the UK but BST/GMT+1!).
Do you live in a place aligned with solar time? 😛
One of the good things about the #degoogle is that it forces you to go through a lot of pictures to do some clean-up. This was taken very close to Reykjavik in Iceland.
The northern lights show became so magnificent all of a sudden that I had to jump on the car without thinking about the exposure time, blurring my face and burning the car lights.
Also later I realised that Vega, in the constellation of Lyra and part of the summer triangle, was there, as my background.
Ah, that lucky shot!
