Sorely needed. Just could not function properly any longer.

Damn, was it hot yesterday. Today is cooler, but it's still hot outside. Humdity is most of it; even after dark--last night around 11-ish I went outside to take the trash bin down to the curb, and it was like stepping into a sauna.

Today is release day for No Man's Sky for PC. I don't have $60 for a game. It'll keep.

It looks as if DNC used cellphone jamming technology at their convention. FCC regulations don't apply to important people.

Planning commissioner in Palo Alto, California, quits her job because she can't afford to live in the city she works for. $6,200 per month in rent, in a home she and her husband share with another couple.

$6,200 per month--even in Illinostan, where property taxes have necessarily skyrocketed--would buy you a nice house. That's a year's lot rent for a double-wide.

The other day I was thinking about stories, and last night I dug into some of my archived information to look up a few things. It's been about 16 years since I last looked into this part of the universe, and now that I've started thinking about it, the creative juices are starting to accumulate.

Ought to be quite a story, assuming I can pull it off.
