The LiveJournal app for iOS has dramatically improved over the years. It's much more usable. About the only thing you can't do is approve or reject comments.

Curiosity

Good thing there are no cats on Mars. Curiosity is a nuclear powered rover armed with a laser.

Tonight I watched NASA TV's broadcast from JPL mission control as they covered the Entry Descent and Landing (EDL) of Mars Curiosity. It landed at 10:17pm MST. We did not know until 14 minutes later whether it landed successfully. Not only did it do so. It sent back a few pictures.

This has been a banner year with all sorts of science events. A partial lunar eclipse, a transit of Venus, and the first private cargo capsule to and from ISS.

Im glad the LiveJournal App for iPhone has gotten a big upgrade in usability. Does this mean I'm likely to post more? Most likely.

What I like most about the app is I can now read my LJ friends' posts.

The App still has a ways to go, but it is now reached minimal functionality.

Gettysburg

Saturday Mel and I toured Gettysburg. We hired a Licensed Battlefield Guide. He rode around with us in our car and we got our own personal tour of the battlefield. He was very knowledgeable. Pix coming soon. Maybe.

If I feel motivated enough, I'll do a Balticon, DC, Gettysburg and wedding report when I get home.

DC

Went to Balticon this past weekend. Had a great time. Saw Charles Stross, Evo Terra, George Hrab, Phil Plait, John Hemry, and many others. I might up a more thorough report but don't hold your breath.

Currently in Washingon, DC. This is my first time. Tuesday took the bus tour to get the lay of the land. It was raining so didn't do to much walking though we did brave the rain to see Arlington Nat'l Cemetery. We walked as far as JFK's gravesite. We also saw RFK's grave nearby. We later went to the Museum of the American Indian. It wasn't just about natives of the US but all of North, Central, and South America.

Today we went to the National Air and Space Museum. I don't think I saw a more concentrated collection of important historical objects in one place: Kitty Hawk, Spirit of St. Louis, Spaceship One, Apollo 11 command module, Yaeger's X-1, Amelia Earhart's Trans-Atlantic plane, plus lots of other cool things. And as an added bonus, I saw the Enterprise model used in the original Star Trek series.

Later I went to the Natural History Museum and saw the Hope Diamond. It was much smaller than I was led to believe. Yeah, as diamonds go it was big but somehow was hoping it was larger.

That's it for now.

Just read in the paper this morning that the first cases of The Formerly Known As Swine Flu have been recorded on Tucson, AZ. They'll announce actual numbers at a press conference later today.

I'm not too concerned.

Update

Have people gotten dumber? You cannot get swine flu from eating pork. I knew this way back in 1976 when I was in the 6th grade. Flus are named based on their origins either location or animal. Since it's really a hybrid flu, perhaps they should have called in Mexico City Flu.

I see two upsides for me from this outbreak. I'll be able to get better travel deals and discounts on bacon.

It is very cold outside right now. My weather app sex it's 19 degrees Anyway still learning the ins and outs of my iPhone. Finally figured out how to do special characters. So if I need to type ‘überdørk’, I can.

As a Gaelic learner, I mostly need gràves and accénts, but if I were learning say Spanish, I'd need a tilde (~) over the n as in cañon.
