I abused a pair of vice-grips to "squish" the hammer-flared "small" side of the rivet, so that it could then pass through the hole again, then used a combination of a metal punch and claw hammer (on the head-side of the rivet) to extract the thing.

Lots of effort.  I had intended to use my dremel tool to cut the swelled side of the rivet, but could not find the appropriate bit for the disc cutter. (I really need to reorganize my tools.)

Sweet garden!

The three suns are more sources of magic than anything else, hence why it's necessary (for practitioners) to know when they're in the sky.

I put two at opposite ends of the planet and had them complete a rotation in 24 hrs. The idea was to mimic a night/day cycle with one sun being much, much dimmer. I don't think that does it properly though.
The third covers the poles and moves much slower (not decided how slow yet).

That sounds like a better idea than trying to cut it with a hacksaw through the gap in the back.

It's been nine days and I see no sign of an aphid recurrence. I think after three failed attempts, I have for the first time in my life successfully cleansed a plant of an aphid infestation by hand. Each aphid is about the size of a nail head and knows how to hide like fucking Waldo crossed with plant mujahadeen, but once I got to know them better I knew where they wanted to hide once they were disturbed. Now the tricky part was clearing them out with tools as crude as human digits without killing the plant; this is the kind of time consuming task I don't think I would've endeavoured to continue were it not for the blessed lockdown

Also my phone broke during an interview but I guess I don't give a fuck. Hahahahaha

My replacement keyboard and replacement joycon shell arrived. Finally. After three weeks. Keyboard is working well, although it feels like my fingers are sticking slightly to the surface of the keys.

As for the replacement joycon shell... does anyone know the best way of cracking the old shell open and not damaging the electronics inside? The new shell does have a full set of replacement screws. At this point, I could just take a screwdriver or drill and keep turning/grinding the screws until they abrade away.

It's official now: the army won't conscript me because of my poor vision and other health issues. At this point I don't want to get eye correction surgery until I'm older so I won't get drafted. I'm so glad about it because I hate the army.

The US has it in reserve; it's what Selective Service is-- in the event of "Oh, we fucked the pooch hard, and now need lots of meat in the armed forces" they will conscript people.

Russia is vastly more likely to do that though, because Mr Putin seems to think that any territory that once belonged to the USSR, needs to be brought back under the umbrella or Russian Authority (To preserve "Cultural Heritage" or some other tripe), A-La Ukraine and Chechnya-- and as such, has a "mighty need" for soldiers.

Russia honestly needs a return to socialism (NOT COMMUNISM, DON'T EVEN TRY TO ACHIEVE COMMUNISM. IT WILL LEAD TO HORRIBLE THINGS). But not pure socialism. Take some cues, the bits that work, from Western capitalist regimes for a mixed economy that allows limited private enterprise despite heavy-handed government interference. And a crackdown on the far-right. The same way the current government harasses liberals. Prevent them from effectively running in elections, censor them, and arrange a few unfortunate accidents for those who actively forment a reactionary (genuinely reactionary) counter-revolution...

I think its only natural to do, for a despot who has served and statecrafted for so long and actually was a secret police.

I didnt know there was a real fear that one could be consripted.  I registered for SS, but Im well more afraid of the disaster that will cause the  draft than the draft itself.

So I did an experiment.

My telescope is fairly modest as an astronomical piece, with a relatively low aperture of 90mm. It does have a fairly impressive focal lenght of 1250mm, though. So I thought, hey, what if I used it as a humongous reflex camera prime lens, for terrestial photography?

And, well, I'm still getting the knack of the camera settings, and you have to focus the scope by hand, but even so...  the results are promising.

This is a mountain peak situated some 5km from where I was shooting from.
Spoiler (click to show/hide)

I had another one in which you could actually see a mountain goat moving around , but I didnt upload those because they were more clearly out of focus.
