Fyi I'm going to start shifting over to @firstname.lastname@example.org, but I won't be abandoning this account just yet. Given my usual, it will take a while.
Spouse came home from the Halted going out of business extravaganza with a bunch of stuff.
Lots of nice tools, including many hundreds of dollars worth of PanaVise accessories.
And we now have approximately 6000 more resistors than we had yesterday. The packages weren't all labeled.
Sad to see the old silicon valley continue to vanish. Maybe they will be able to sell the business, or maybe rent increases will make it no longer viable.
I saw posters that the pope was going to visit Palermo, did not know it was going to be near where I was staying. I left literally just in time.
I wonder if the event was at the big traffic circle that has a huge anti-mafia remembrance sculpture. It's right next to the park where the homeless people were sleeping. The port area is grungy, but the memorial is a nice green patch.
@millenomi now that I'm back home, is there anything in particular I should do regarding the iPhone Vodafone business? I haven't synced the phone yet, but I need to.
I have the device, a pre-trip backup, and my Vodafone paperwork.
Went to Hauptbahnhof and picked up some gummy candy and a snack. This photo pretty much sums up how European travel works in our household:
Watching people try to cram overstuffed American-size carryons in the overhead on this ERJ-195. Um yeah about that.
In the process of getting from the apartment to the airport, another mosquito got me. And anything I could use to stop it itching is in the checked baggage. Because liquids.
But somehow Trump is also a "patriot" trying to do a good job for the American people.
I pointed out that Trump's picture of who is American leaves out a lot of people. He didn't disagree. Maybe that will change his opinion a bit.
He's very worried about refugees, but thinks the problem is that the rest of Europe has left Italy holding the bag. (Had particularly unkind things to say about Hungary.)
The only thing we could firmly agree on is it's all a big political mess.
