partly cloudy? partly sunny?
So, yes, it looks like it's seriously raining. And so, Coco can't be walked.
But Z just told me Eclipse has a plugin for Matlab and it will make me more efficient with coding. And subversion for version control. Less headache. More awesomeness.

teatime between bits of MATLAB coding...
Me: I don't think there's much you can do to help. (Pause.) Oh, you meant you're going to super-glue the structure so it doesn't fall...
Mother: But they're likely to detach in the breeze if I don't! Or I could build them another nest...

ISS dodges space junk again. And I quote:
Astronauts aboard the International Space Station Sunday were forced to change the orbit of the station -- and the Space Shuttle Discovery that is currently docked to it -- to avoid an estimated 4-inch piece of space junk that may have been on a collision course.Current music: Wall-E Soundtrack
It's the third time in three weeks that astronauts on the space station have had to worry about space debris , but it's the first time they have deemed the threat serious enough to change the orbit.

Astronomers imaged Tr16-244, along with neighbor star WR 25, as part of a series of studies on star-forming nebulae. They are rare and powerful stars that live relatively short lives, burning through their hydrogen fuel faster than most stars. They radiate brilliantly in ultraviolet wavelengths and appear blue in color. Newly released images from Hubble show Tr16-244 is made up of three stars, with two stars orbiting so closely around each other that they appeared as a single point of light in previous images.Current music: Etro Anime - Diablo

Stage 2: Allow small furry creatures to eat the fruit and leave the seeds behind. Depending on their oral dexterity (and something of natural gracefulness in their eating habits), some seeds will be left with teethmarks. Judging from the size of the teethmarks (see below), I'd hypothesize a chipmunk-sized creature.
Stage 3: Wash and dry ginkgo nuts overnight on a paper towel. Crack open ginkgo nuts with a nutcracker. Cover and microwave until you hear a few explosions being tamed by the cover you, ahem, didn't neglect to place on top of the nuts (approx. 1 min. for 25 nuts, microwave-dependent). Consume delicious translucent green gems.
