A record of the total solar eclipse on 2021-12-04, in Antarctica (edit 1)

I'm continuing to work on A record of the total solar eclipse on 2021-12-04, in Antarctica.

A record of the total solar eclipse on 2021-12-04, in Antarctica

Unfortunately, the best pictures I have of totality are poorly lit and out of focus, and of course we couldn't see the eclipse itself. This isn't what I wanted. It's not what I would have chosen. But it was still beautiful and magical in its own way, in its darkness and flaws. I've always held that reality, compared to any alternate possibility, has a goodness all its own - simply because it's real.

Upcoming vacation, possibly sporadic updates

For the next month or so, I will be doing a lot of traveling. I will be away from my usual setup, and possibly away from Internet access altogether. My update schedule maybe correspondingly disrupted. For a clue as to what this is all about, here's a picture of the Moon as it appeared over […]

Post-migration work: continuing image check

Post-migration work: "15 puzzle: a tile sliding game"

I fixed up "15 puzzle: a tile sliding game". The fractal program is next.

Post-migration work: replacing images in code

The big questions brought up in my last post, about how to update the posts for this second pass, is still on my mind. I intend to spend some more time thinking about them. Meanwhile, there's still some basic work that can be done, without answering the big questions. I've updated the posts up to […]

Post-migration work: reconsidering post features

I've revised things up to Elsa's facial expressions during "Let It Go", in Disney's "Frozen", which was a decent-sized undertaking. But I'm wondering what is exactly involved in this second pass. As a brain dump, here's what I'm thinking: I'm trying to fix up all the major posts. This involves migrating all the images, and […]

Post-migration work: started up second pass
