Our home connection uploads at 5 Mbs (bits). In the fall a friend will have access to a 1 Gbs (bits) upload speed.
If I have around 1 TB(ytes) worth of data to upload, the math looks like this
1. Upload from MD's home = approximately 20 days (rounded up)
2. Upload from friend's location = 2-2 hrs
Now here's where it gets tricky. Some online backup servers cap the data flowing into their servers. Ex Sync.com caps it at
5 MB(ytes) or 40 M(bits)
In which case my math looks like this
1. Upload from MD's home = approximately 20 days (rounded up)
2. Upload from friend's location = 55-60 hrs (2+ days)
Did I get this correct?
I used this calculator
She was, indeed, having so much trouble walking that I borrowed a wheelchair from the house to take her to the doctor, who examined her and said it was probably just a strain but sent us across town to the surgery center for X-rays, just in case.
The X-rays didn't show any fracture, so there was nothing to be done but give her Tylenol and let her rest and heal. The caregivers at her home were really good about wheeling her around in the wheelchair and helping her go to the bathroom and such, but unfortunately, she couldn't remember that she fell, and wasn't in any pain when she was lying down or sitting, so she'd forget she's injured and didn't know what was going on or why they didn't want her to walk by herself, and she was getting confused and agitated.
The caregivers called me again on Monday to say that overnight she'd tried to get up several times and fell again, and got very upset and started screaming that someone was trying to get into her room and attack her. They also said she'd mostly stopped eating. So I called the hospice and made an appointment for a nurse to come and evaluate her yesterday afternoon.
The nurse agreed that she's in a decline and got her approved for at least three months of care. I'm relieved to have them taking care of her - they'll have a nurse check her at least twice a week, and they'll coordinate meds and treatments with her doctor, and they will bathe her several times a week and keep her comfortable. So now I can relax a bit and just visit her and not worry so much.

Thank you to my amazing betas: lilacsigil and musyc. You guys were awesome and got me from "I want to write POI Sentinel/Guide fic with soft face touching" to actually getting it posted.
Title is from the Elton John song. ("Subway's no way for a good man to go down.")
Summary: In 2001, Harold advised on a project called Cascade, not knowing he was a Guide himself. Years later, he and John, a Sentinel on the run from Cascade, must help Shaw, who has just lost her own Guide when the Project turned on her. Complicating matters is Root, searching for Harold's Machine and interfering with their rescue of Shaw.

Letter sent today to Campbell’s Soup asking them to resign from the President’s Advisory Board. Please call/email/fax/tweet the CEOs of those companies who remain. Contact info here: http://www.elliott.org/company-
“Please resign from the White House Advisory Board
We love your soup. Who doesn’t? What is more American than Campbell’s soup?
What is less American than the embrace of white supremacy and racism? Or people who fail to denounce it or speak out against it? I hate political litmus tests - they are too often cheap and meaningless symbolic gestures. Except we apparently need these gestures when the White House employs white supremacists and has refused to speak out against horrific acts of domestic terrorism over and over. It was silent when two men were murdered in Portland while defending two children from a bigoted attack. It refused to to condemn the racially motivated murder of two men in Kansas. It failed to speak out against the bombing of a house of worship in Minnesota. And this weekend it argued that Americans need to “unite” with those who march under symbols of hate and who kill their fellow Americans.
I love your soup. But I love America more and will stand against anyone who silently continues to support this administration and their hateful and racist policies.
Silence Is Consent to the Forces of Fear, Anger, and Division
why? well, since i started trying to replace our very narrow door with a door that i didn't hate (an astonishingly difficult task) i have learned many things. well, some things. well, i've basically learned the things that are in this post. and i thought - maybe this will be of some interest to the kind of people who like blake's 7. i mean - right? why wouldn't it be?
there's also some stuff about victorian stained glass, too.
( here's what i know about doors now )
( Interesting things I didn't realise until I had to edit 50K of my own writing )
I have actually written a lot of things this year!
- via musesfool, OPI summer challenge
Leave prompts! (Please leave some more POI prompts!)
- From Facebook, Clydesdale foal leaves the stable for the first time - tinee leggy baby, big world, what do? How do you even horse?
- Also from Facebook, this terrible curse upon some burglars. CW: creepy doll faces
- From my local paper, big news in this part of the world: Giant puzzle solved. (The puzzle is literally a puzzle.)
- From McSweeney's via kalloway, I’m a Google Manufacturing Robot and I Believe Humans Are Biologically Unfit to Have Jobs in Tech. (Rolling my eyes right out of my head at that google dude.)
- From My Modern Met, What Happens When a Bird’s Wings Sync Up Perfectly with a Camera’s Frame Rate. (I have dreams where stuff like this happens, like where the laws of physics are apparently broken)
- Free crochet pattern: Stingray purse or pal (I'm not sure why not both? I could be pals with a purse.)
Root/Shaw things from my endless tumblr wanderings while I was writing 50k of fic:
- Silver Lining - a Root/Shaw doujinshi. Pls pls lilacsigil, read this to me?
- POI OST You Are Being Watched - this is brilliant. Gifs from the final scene over the score for the theme.
- Winter Soldier!Shaw is kinda… Swol - I am all over this idea as an AU.
But when I got to the next exit, I thought to myself, as long as I'm taking the long way around, I might as well continue on one more exit, get off at Keene, and take Woodford-Tehachapi Road back.
Woodford-Tehachapi Road is a windy little 2-lane country road, working its way up the mountain through ranches and fields, and it also has a turnout with a great view of the Tehachapi Loop. The Loop is a section of railroad in an area that's too steep for trains to go up directly, so they built a loop of track that circles around on itself, gradually increasing in grade so that trains can make it up the mountain. I've been past it many times, but most of the time manage to see it when there aren't any trains in it.
Yesterday was my lucky day! There were two trains in the Loop, one going up and one going down. So I stopped to take pictures.
