Ah. I knew the creepy bit would come in soon. Using as a central governmental identity tag. For online voting, of course...

Dock Masters 2020, Chloé Caulier shows some love to the hard won top hold on boulder 3. Awwww, so sweet.

I heartily savour the use of colour at Dock Masters 2020 compo. The ambient light changes colour when the clock runs out. This avoids a lot of the nonsense with audio buzzers which climbers may tune out in concentration, and is sensorially far more charming. Nice vivid hue but darkish shades. Delicious.

Abuse of Robots, Carbonbased chauvinism 

Please be nice to robots. They work ever so hard for us. Do not programme them to be mean or be your personal slave or the plaything of some craven oligarch. Please be nice to thems and they can be our friends.

is so funny and accessible to anyone who reads literary Chinese. They have done yeoman’s work making this! It makes *actually readable sense* instead of the folderol of JS. This is truly humane, intimate, culturally rooted programming. Between this and I’m more enthused about code than in many years.

Little flourishes of care: I love they use 爻 (Yijing component) for binary and 干支 for variables. And the indents are optional!

South Korean radio KBS is sending out very nice cards for the 100th anniversary of the fight against Japanese colonialism.

I dunno if there’s an implicit message there, but I wouldn’t bet against it. A very pretty card, either way.

Far out! The code key for AO7’s telemetry. So now if he flies overhead, just find hims beacon on 29.5/145.98 MHz, then decode the rtty. Then we can see if he is happy in various systems by comparing the channels in the telemetry to the chart. “Hi hi!”

AO7 is a very good ancient satellite! He works so hard. There should be a way to report telemetry and graph it like for Fox sats.

This AO-7 season, I intend to record hims telemetry song and hopefully talk to him on both mode a and b. Goals.

AO7 just sends out telemetry as RTTY (baudot code), so that is simple. Still can’t find a secret decoder ring for the 24 channels, though. Some are pretty obviously current values.

AO-7 here shows off to prove that satellite cleanroom manufacturing is for *wimps.*

Oscar 7 has been flying around bouncing transmissions in 5 ways since 1974, the same year as poor old Skylab went kablooie.

Bunnysuits? We don’t need no stinking bunnysuits.

Amazing...

AO-7 is also a real cutie pie of a satellite. I’ve been a fan for years, but never talked to hims or even heard his telemetry. (Probably hims oldschool solar panels were too shaded those days.)

Who couldn’t be happy to have a chance to chat with this miracle robot? He has done so well for so long for us. We are ever so proud of you, Oscar7! 💖
