Catfood Earth 3.40

Catfood Earth 3.40

I've just released Catfood Earth 3.40 for Windows and 1.50 for Android.

Both updates fix a problem with the clouds layer not updating. The Android update also adds compatibility for Android 5 / Lollipop.

Also, Catfood Earth for Android is now free. I had been charging $0.99 for the Android version but I've reached the conclusion that I'm never going to retire based on this (or even buy more than a couple of beers) so it's not worth the hassle. Catfood Earth for Windows has been free since 3.20.

Enjoy!

The Forever War by Dexter Filkins

The Forever War by Dexter Filkins

4/5

A barrage of Iraq and Afghanistan vignettes. No narrative, few conclusions. Depressing but illuminating.

Devil's Slide Trail

Devil's Slide Trail used to be one of the most scenic stretches of Highway 1. It was hard to enjoy though while you were trying not to crash and die. Now it's a leisurely stroll with magnificent views and well worth a visit.

Hike starts at 37.5852899, -122.5098668 (Google Earth).

Not to be anal but (any number of dogs...)

Google is going to start ranking pages based on facts. I'm game. This MUNI sign has always bothered me.

The highest capacity vehicle in the MUNI fleet has to be a two-car light rail vehicle. Capacity 436 people. The average weight of a person is 185 pounds. So we're looking at 80,660 pounds per rush hour train.

The lightest dog is a 1.4 pound Chihuahua named Ducky.

So at the absolute outside with no other passengers the limit is 57,614 dogs. I'm going to have to make some stickers...

Book reviews for February 2015

Neanderthal Man: In Search of Lost Genomes by Svante Pääbo

Neanderthal Man: In Search of Lost Genomes by Svante Pääbo

4/5

Fascinating story about sequencing the Neanderthal genome with a lot of frank insights into the scientific process - both highs of clever breakthroughs and lows of petty rivalries. Excellent.
