fantasizing about the house you would buy if everything went according to plan and you were somehow well off enough to afford it
So since, with all respect to ipads, they’re a bit out of the budget of the sort of impulse buy I was thinking of: does anyone have any feelings about the google nexus 7, the kindle fire, or samsung galaxy tab?
ok but what does he research??
McEvilly was a seismologist, and U.F. Kocks, well, he wrote about anisotropy, which google tells me is “the property of being directionally dependent,” whatever that means. But generally all the researchers I’m looking at are working on space stuff or earth stuff. I’m working on a space and earth research collection, you see. It includes titles like ”Numerical Model of Emission Line Cloud-Hot Intercloud Medium Interface in QSOs and Seyfert Galaxies,” ”Ultra-high Magnetic Field Generation Using Laser Produced Plasmas,” ”Emission Spectra from Shocked Simple Solids,” (shocked!) and ”Computing the Resonance Frequency Spectra of a Rectangular Parallelepiped Single System Crystal of Monoclinic Symmetry.” I am constantly impressed by Archivists Toolkit’s ability to recognize those words during spellcheck.
Yesterday’s researcher: U. F. Kocks. Today’s researcher? Dr. McEvilly. Seriously.
I am suddenly and impulsively considering the purchase of a tablet - something I could read comics on, and use as a light computer substitute during travel (email, twitter, tumblr and such). Anyone have any they would recommend?
As we all prepare our brains and twitter feeds for the unstoppable flood of comics and entertainment news that will pour out of San Diego Comic-Con, Marvel announced some news in the quiet before the storm. Now, for 99 cents, readers can gain access to Marvel Unlimited, the publisher’s treasure trove of 15,000 issues from current series (well, at least six months old) and classic golden- and silver-age titles.
Today I would like to take the 110 through all the windy bits without traffic to go get a burrito.
This is unlikely to happen, as A) I have plenty of non-burrito food B) if I did get a burrito I could get one much more conveniently and C) to drive that path without traffic I’d probably need to leave work like, now, which is not reasonably practical, and D) I don’t even know where I’d get a burrito in that area anyway. ALAS.
