I just love photographs of a #campfire and #glowing #embers #charcoal in general. I'm don't suffer from #pyromania, but I can definitely see the attraction.
Closeup they can look like awesome alien landscapes, especially when enhancing the reds and blues a bit. The #HDR that Google Photos made here of the three shots #autoexposurebracketing that I took, has a bit of a similar effect.

Clouds were rushing across the sky, but for the most part, it was clear, and we had a perfect view of the #moon looking like a dark brown chunk of rock in the sky.
(Then I spent 10 minutes fighting with camera settings while he went back to bed.)
Ever considered the origin / meaning of the term 'footage'?
«foot + -age […]
(uncountable) An amount of film or tape that has been used to record something.»
So, in this age of digital media where most of every day 'footage' is rarely even recorded on film the term really doesn't make much sense anymore.
YouTube video with NSFW (gore) graphics of Mortal Kombat 11 gameplay Show more
Just finished watching this presentation video of #MortalKombat11 featuring #gameplay footage of a fight between #Scorpion and #Baraka: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GhXzNS_Nuyg
Despite having 3D graphics, it still has that fluid 2D feel from the original #MortalKombat games.
The amount of #gore in it is what you've come to expect from a MK game. It looks brutal and I can only imagine the reactions if they'd tried to release this in the SNES era.
in the mean time I'm using Firefox-headless instead; seems to be a tad easier to get to do what I want. :)
So, I now got a few lines of python that will use splinter + geckodriver + firefox-headless to load a #GooglePlus post, 'click' on the 'View x previous comments' link to expand all comments, take a full screenshot and save the HTML, all while using my signed-in, actual, Firefox profile.
That should help make backups of my #GPlus posts along with their comments.
Now to feed it my post URLs.
I'm experimenting with #ChromeHeadless and was hoping for it to be able to use the exact same browser context as if I were running it Chrome normally. I've tried passing the appropriate profile via --user-data-profile, but that doesn't seem to make a difference.
Any #developer here have any pointers for me?
Star Trek: Enterprise — S04E07: The Forge Show more
So, now the ensign pilot (Mayweather) and the lieutenant tactical officer (Reed) are a trained forensic research team? Why else would they be the ones to research the wreckage of a bomb site instead of trained professionals?
No wonder they got surprised by an armed bomb whose trigger mechanism had failed...

Also, how does he end up getting his offspring so Noonian Soong can be born, if he's likely spending the rest of his life in prison?Also wondering if he perhaps genetically engineered his offspring.
Soong children do have a tendency to try to kill their siblings…
non-programmers are an important part of open source projects. non-programmer contributions are valid and useful and not second tier or otherwise less valuable.
it's easy to say programmers are the only value-add when you're fortunate enough to have enough non-programmers that you can take them for granted.
if you take away the feature requests, translations, and general chatter - many OSS projects would have never been more than flawed, narrow use case tech demos.
Cleaning of disgusting dust and cat hair covered radiator. Show more
Just finished cleaning a heater fan we stopped using in the bedroom quite a while ago because it started to affect our eyes, throat and nose. Now that I finally opened it up, I can clearly see that's not surprising... What a dust and old cat hairs clogging the radiator ribs...
Glad we still can get appliances you can open up and service yourself, rather having to bring it to a licensed reseller or getting specialised tools.
I dreamt two groups (can't recall if they were species or just nations or something else; might've watched a bit too much Star Trek) at war for a long time, created something/someone together in an attempt to settle their differences.
It however was filled with so much animosity, that it was being consumed by self-loathing, fear of itself and lack of self-confidence, that it did more harm than good. It became a scapegoat and all that negativity was still so palpable when I woke up...
