What a week.
I was hoping to have some preliminary telescope pics up, but the fan in my MacBook died. It's over three years old, so I can't complain too much, but dag. Dag.

Then, I was hoping to see some of the Perseid meteor shower, but the monsoon season returned just in time to cloud over the night sky.

And I was hoping that there wouldn't be a large-scale, public justification for Monday's post. Well, shit.


  1. What??? The flawless piece of machinery that is an Apple died?

  2. Weeeellllll... technically it's still alive, it just gets hotter than usual. That laptop is the same one I typed my PhD thesis on; if she doesn't make it, it will be a sad day.
