    Well, duh, cheese season is in the fall, after all the baby cheeses have had a chance to mature.

    They chased me out of the store when I brought my cheese gun.

    I am not well versed on Stalin's accomplishments, if any. I gather that he was initially an actual functionary, but it seems from far away that the Soviet environment was an opportunistic enclave for the breeding of the worst elements of human nature as it relates to that sort of society. Stalin was one extreme result. Georgy Zhukov seems to be the antithesis. His leadership appears to me to have been a key component in Soviet success in WW II. I don't know how he survived returning to the Soviet Union, he appears to be the kind of person Stalin viewed as a threat, and there were significant events to accuse him of some bullshit anti-revolutionary activity. He an Eisenhower had a genuine friendship. Ike even sent him a fly rod after the war as a gift, which should have been damning in the Soviet system. Interestingly, there was a US soldier who was captured and managed to escape several times. In one of his later escapades, he escaped east and ran into and joined the Soviet forces (not official, just fought along side them.) Zhukov heard of this, interviewed the man, and arranged for him to return to his own people. (He had been declared dead, which lead to more fun and games.) Defector Viktor Belenko talks about the end result at length in his book, MiG Pilot. After working through the shock of how different life in the west is vs what he was used to (had difficulty grasping that grocery stores were real, not just set up to lie to him about conditions; they had goods available, and no lines to buy them) he relates that everything the Soviets ostensibly strove for was available in the West. He had similar issues with a visit to a US naval vessel. The quarters were too nice to be real. There seems to have been a lot of paranoia steeped into the fabric of the Soviet Union, perhaps not undeservedly, but it seems to have hamstrung them.

    This page, and the two following, detail Susan’s strategy, which revolves around being able to play her special card at the right time.

    “Some of you may die, but that is a sacrifice I am willing to make”. They didn’t mind the troops dying, but that was only if they succeeded in killing the enemy as well. Having the soldier fail to get close enough to make the attack was a waste.

    What Are You Watching?

    Watching The Daily Show, a rerun from the last day of the RNC. Pretty biting stuff. In reality, I'm only watching it as a test of a Paramount+ install on my new Fire Stick 4K. I've migrated Paramount+, peacock, Disney+, Prime Video, FloMarching, and last but hardly least, YouTubeTV, to the Fire Stick 4K. It's running sweetly on a v6 WiFi connection, better I might say than the base Samsung TV ran with a wired 10/100 connection (the max wired speed it supported). I've also installed pluto tv, and quickly found the Sailor Moon channel, to the chagrin of the rest of the household. I am chaos personified.

    Things That Are Just Annoying

    How was Apollo 10 unsuccessful? It was never planned to land, only to test the lander and docking in lunar orbit.

    If I was a spearman, and had to take out a tank, I'd try a tank sized pit in the road, or possibly set up a massive log fall on a cliffside road. Either would take a lot of prep time. You might take out individuals who were not buttoned up inside the tank with an arrow from a hidden position; might whittle them down. It you are spotted out in the open, you'd better surrender. Maybe you can slip your spear into the tank barrel when no one is paying attention. There is some chance it will jam a fired round, and then there is a good chance that if they don't clear the barrel, the next shot will damage the gun.

    To be fair, when cows jump over the Moon, the landings don't tend to be graceful.

    New NVMe Drive

    The NVMe saga has apparently come to a happy conclusion. The screws arrived today, and they were indeed different from the ones I got from Amazon. My son installed the 4TB NVMe drive using them, and we then took a few moments to do a slight bit of case dusting before reassembling the laptop. A few hushed prayers and crossed fingers later, we booted up the system, ran Disk Management to set up the drive, and voila! The drive worked. For anyone interested, it is indeed running at PCI-E 3.0 speeds, according to the Crystal Disk Info/Benchmark suite. It reads a tad slower than my Samsung C: drive, but writes just a bit faster. Crystal reports it's built to the NVMe 2.0 standard, whereas the Samsung 970 EVO is merely NVMe 1.3 compliant. Go figure. It's also running cooler than the Samsung, probably due to the graphene heatsink ribbon on top of it. Regardless of the differences, at the moment, I'm happy.

    https://sonneteerattheslam.wordpress.com/2018/11/05/beo-seuss/ Beowolf as if Dr Seuss wrote it. Might cause minor brain damage.

    The next step will be Chicken & Waffle flavoured coffee. They could do both Traditiomal Fried Chicken & Amish Chicken Stew flavours.

    It's too bad that the Zuck didn't clean his clock in a cage match.
