I finally got my driver's license after 2 months of waiting. I have almost no use for it right now, but it's a real, honest-to-god driver's license, so that's nice. The test was on the day before the lockdown started in my country, which is why it took so long.
Ooh, you'll love this then: my home state is giving out licenses without the driving test, only the written.

I think anybody who already uses a driver's license regularly is worse off for that...

Jesus that's terrifying. No actual driving test for your license is just madness

I mean, is it, though? I passed my first driving test with all of two times behind a wheel, and all of one short session in terms of vaguely explicit instructions. No learner period, no driving classes, no meaningful experience elseways. Still passed, first try. Woefully underprepared, didn't matter :P

I also passed the drivers test easily, however I had a semester of driver's ED, and a very good teacher.

My best friend however got his learner's permit at 25, practiced til he was 27.  Aced the written test every time, and failed the actual driving test 3 times.  And not on silly technicalities either.  One he told me is that he failed on the test track by turning right but turning right into the oncoming lane instead of the proper one, though he blamed that on confusing track layout.  One test he failed I was there for because his family was tired of driving him, so I did instead.  He got to the live road section on a 6 lane road and ran a red on a major intersection because he didn't realize he had to keep the brake petal held down, inched out into the road, then panicked and just went. 

He's still my best friend and he admits he's not a good driver, he usually insists I drive everywhere, but when I am in the car now he is the safest driver I know. There are people out there who ABSOLUTELY need to take live drivers tests in order to learn from those kinds of dangerous mistakes so that they don't make them again.

I passed on my third driving exam attempt.

Today, coincidentally, I ran a red light. Don't have any excuse for it, just absent-mindedness. Didn't even see the lights until I was already halfway across the crossing.

It's actually the second time this has happened in the last few weeks. I need to get more focused when driving.

I remember having my driving exam scheduled on the immediate aftermath of a snowstorm, where most of the streets were unplowed. I did a three point turn off of a giant pile of snow. I also failed! (Wrong lane, my foot! There's piles of snow there and the car provided by the driving school was garbo)

I'd like to see surrounding states start refusing to recognize those licenses as valid.

I've been processing star pictures in a new way that makes them less... black over black. You see more stars, but it ruins the colors (that's a shame on some constellations... I've a very nice picture of Ophiuchus and you can appretiate red giants). Still, they are a bit crisper.

The refurbished reflex camera I ordered hasn't arrived yet. I expect to have better results with that... we'll see...
For now, I continue using the SX730


Here are the pics I processed using this new system. Thoughts?





Edit: something interesting happened after despeckling the lower image in GIMP: now there are *more* stars visible than before. You can even see Delphinus and parts of capricorn.

While I was running, a car slowed down beside me with what looked like a family in it, and a guy leaned out the window and offered me a bottle of water.

I said no, because I was near my house, and you know, COvid-19... is a thing?

Still a very heartwarming gesture. I'm not used to random kindness from complete strangers.

I'm curious as to how a tank would evolve. Would it climb out of the primordial ooze wiggling it's track-nubs, feeding on smaller jeeps before crawling onto the shore having evolved proper treds?
