Troythulu’s Weekly Gnuz Roundup for July 20, 2012
Hello to you all! This week was, unfortunately, far from completely uneventful for my Troythuluness, and especially yesterday morning when the air conditioner died on us, though that’s been fixed…at some considerable cost to the rent. Never mind that, though. I’ve picked up a new book, and noted my plans for a full review of it as late as next Wednesday, though I’m going through it fairly quickly and it should be done sooner. Yay me.
This Monday, I posted a TED video on the future of crime in an increasingly technological world, and an essay, The Affirmations of Positive Unbelief, part of which I might post on my “What is a Skeptic?” page at some point. Still haven’t done much on the sitemap and media page for this site, though I’m hoping to have time later this morning to work on it.
…So many things piling up…Grrr! or as Mister Eccles would say, *Mew!*
I also had a game going on at a friend’s place, and had a blast with my antihero slowly morphing over time into a villain, which was loads of fun, though his transformation to the Dark Side is not yet complete!
On Tuesday the ‘rent came home from a trip up north during the weekend to see relatives and attend a funeral, so it was just me and the kitties until later that evening.
I posted another fractal image this Wednesday, this time, like several of the more recent images, generated using Mandelbulber, quickly becoming my favorite app for this sort of thing. Also, I posted on Wednesday a video of Dick Feynman talking about atoms as “little jiggling things,” in his highly accessible descriptions of nature at the subatomic scale — hearing him makes Quantum Mechanics see much less weird, and that’s a good thing.
Yesterday, I posted this tribute to my kitten and to actor Christopher Eccleston,
and a cat-themed installment to my favorite webcomic, xkcd.

Good morning, and have a great weekend! I’ll be posting stat updates in next Friday’s installment…See you then!
