UPDATE: Check the comments for a Ham Radio comment.
I’m off to do some research on a couple topics.
It’s sort of weird to have been 19/52 on the upgrade list. But the plane is jammed with roadwarriors. I don’t think Cartier has more “diamonds”. There were so many priority boarders that I thought, “when everyone’s special, noone is”.
I want a new clerical priority deal, a new priest-traveller priority class. Maybe…
I am in Atlanta waiting for flight deux.
There is a cool patio at the club here. When it cools off a bit I’ll go out there for the last few minutes of freedom.
Do you charge your phone outside of your house? Perhaps at a public place or from a computer or anything connected to a network? I once plugged my phone into an airline seat thingie to charge it and I got a message on screen “Do you trust this computer?” “Whoa!” quoth I. “No! DENIED!” So, now I use these data blocker things everywhere. They will let power in, but nothing else in or out. HERE
No, you may not look in my phone.
I am told that there is WiFi for the whole of the flight now. To think!
When I called my mother earlier, I reflected on what it was like to live overseas in the 80’s, what sort of communications challenges there were. It’s all so very different now.Someone wanted to know what I am reading. It is a novel by Ross King called Ex Libris. So, far it is pretty engaging. I started chapter one as I buckled up on the last flight. I have read a couple other things by King, including Brunelleschi’s Dome: The Story of the Great Cathedral in Florence and The Judgment of Paris: The Revolutionary Decade That Gave the World Impressionism. The latter I read after I returned from my Paris trip some months back. I wish I had read it before! Now, when I visit the Musée d’Orsay, it’ll be with a new perspective and appreciation.
As you veteran readers here may have noticed, I like going to museums.
Time to get going again.
This is the part I don’t like so much.
