Good Morning!

Our sunrises have been top quality this week. 😊

The NY Times has an article up on retrocomputing (see previous boost) and they have a photo in there "Atari ST in 1985" that just blows my mind...

Knowing that NYT has good archiving practices, I trust that they got this photo in 1985 and the GEM looks like 1.0, so this was probably an early pre-release ST at a trade show.

WHAT is that monitor? I was deep into the Atari ST back then, and I've never seen this before. There was an Atari monitor with a built-in floppy drive???

SpaceX will attempt another bellyflop with a giant rocket on January 9th. The NOTAM (warning for planes to stay out of the way) is "From the surface up to Unlimited" 😃​

We couldn’t see anything beyond the neighbor’s roof this morning with thick fog covering the bay. But it opened up to reveal a brilliant blue sky in the afternoon.

On the first day of 2021 we went out onto the Bay - it was a calm morning and just floating on the gentle waves for a few hours was very soothing.

My last bread bake for the year. I’ve lost count a long time ago, but this should be around my 50th Shokupan since the first shelter in place order back in March.

This new baking habit has been a pleasant addition to my life. It makes me very happy that I can now turn out a good loaf of bread reliably and quickly whenever I feel like it. A huge boost for our quality of life!
