No indication of collision. 👍

CZ-4C R/B passed over LeoLabs Kiwi Space Radar 10 minutes after TCA. Our data shows only a single object as we'd hoped, with no signs of debris.

We will follow up in the coming days on Medium with a full in-depth risk assessment of this event!

Second-to-last day to vote. Have you done your democracy?

Today I:
- went to the gym
- picked up an HDMI-microHDMI adapter
- Set up a raspberry pi
- Installed microk8s on it
- Spoke with an ADHD coach

I failed to vote. That'll be tomorrow's task.

@aurynn question: have you considered an InternetNZ grant for cloudisland?

Loving today. Can't believe I waited till 2020 to get to one. So glad I've made it.

I still find it astounding that a Tesla charged from the electricity grid emits about 45-55% more CO2 overall than my camry hybrid pumped full of petrol.

Australia is so incredibly backwards.


Very glad to have a diagnosis and a clear management path. Fuck yes.

I have an answer to my health woes: I have Coeliac disease. I've been torturing my poor little villi with my anti-gluten antibodies.

A little bittersweet to have an ending, but it's for the best I think.

Well, that's the end of that job. Time to find something new!

Turns out I only have one kidney! I’ve never had two! Fascinating surprise discovery about my body via CT scan.
