What I Learned in 2021 Week 8

  1. It’s week 8 already. Time flies.
Felt foot on the bottom of a wooden chair leg
  1. I learned some methods for getting these stupid felt feet to stick to the bottom of my wooden chair in my home office. Here’s one. Here’s another that honestly looks dumb so I’m not going to do it. There are others but it seems that the way to go is to clean/sand/level the chair legs and then reapply and hope for the best.
  2. I learned that I had absolutely no idea how to spell “Perseverance.” Go Percy! The first image they showed at the press conference post-landing was the shot of the rover from the descent stage. I shouted “wow!” out loud in my office.
  3. Once again I remembered the utility of pressing SHUFFLE on my enormous collection of music on the supercomputer in my pocket. I’ve got over 60 GB of music and audio on my phone. Maybe 2% is regularly listened to. It’s useful to have it serve up things I don’t normally, ’cause once upon a time I found something likeable about that music.
  4. Speaking of music, been listening to this album quite a bit the last couple weeks. Good stuff by Lemoncello.
  5. Bean bag chairs are apparently an excellent substitute for a litter box by our post-surgical cat. Whee.
  6. La Citadelle de Lille in Lille, Fr. Wow. Check this out. Here’s a zoomable map of the layout of the fortress.
