a collection of long-form posts by Reginald Routhwick, founder of the Constant Noble creative-venture label as well as its official Miraheze wiki.
From the Author—or "FTA" for short—is a continuation of what started out as Routhwick's "#WhatLiesAground" feed. "#WhatLiesAground" was hosted on the now-closed Google+ from late June 2012 till February 2019 (with predecessor posts starting in March 2012); continued on the Steemit platform till April 2020; and switched to Hive.blog from that point on till November 2021.
Medieval monks used to keep copies of important documents (mostly about which land they owned) to give them some insurance against fires and mice. Nowadays we can have "Name of the Rose" type catastrophes of a different nature, but which would still be familiar to a hypothetical "Walter of Stephenage". I do not see it elsewhere, so may I offer my thanks to the people who evidently worked so hard to restore things after the recent issues.
Remember when in Big Fat Liar (2002), Hollywood mogul Marty Wolf stole a teen boy's ...
As we tune back in post-haste, a look at how Christmas weekend shaped up for me:
24/12, 10:06 p.m.: Younger sister brought over my brand-new SanDisk 64 GB USB—the same one we'll move all of our mapfiles to after press time. (Not to mention we'll upgrade QGIS once the next version, 3.30, is all set for market; for now, we remain on long-phased-out 2.18. [I tried to move on with 3.4/Madeira some time ago, but lack of laptop space on our HP system prevented that.])
25/12, 11:36–11:45 a.m.: During our gift-unwrapping ceremony (the niblings received the most presents), I got a $20 gift card from my mom; an AmazonEcho Dot (with Alexa Assistant) from the younger sister; and another gift card worth $25 from my stepfather (in that order). The only reason for the Echo Dot were my occasional rendezvouses with what the niblings already had since August (to kill some empty ...
...while at the same time, I'm almost out of time...and have run out of good titles even. After that, we are taking a good break from this feature as we...
deal with another couple of movies tonight in light of the younger sister's late hours;
install Windows 10 over 11 afterward (having switched off S mode, unplanned, at 7:11 yesterday morning);
and finally deal with Rogatia from scratch, all over again, after 14 protracted years of R&D. (Speaking of which, I finally found out belatedly how to salvage the pre-made coastlines from earlier attempts in Wilbur—through none other than the Mound feature, which yours truly had severely overlooked the last time I tried to do so and reported on it during the twilight of my Steemit phase.)
Not to mention we'll work on the parent "2022" page for this year's FTA editions, after which we'll handle 2021's.
