Time Event
BASFA Hugo & Campbell Recommendations Posted
I finished transcribing the results of three weeks of BASFA's Hugo and Campbell Award discussions, and the results start with this entry on hugo_recommend. Unfortunately, I'm not one of that group's administrators, and the tags were never updated for 2015, so everything is tagged with the wrong year, but I did get it done.

Current Mood: accomplished
Computer History Museum
Lisa and I would have driven home today, but it has been snowing with chain restrictions over Donner Summit, so we stayed in Union City an extra night (we made these plans a few days ago based on the weather forecasts) after having delivered up the Astro to my favorite mechanic in Fremont yesterday. This left us with a day on our hands, so we decided to go see something we've been telling ourselves we'd go see sometimes, and that we'd kept putting off: the Computer History Museum. While were in the building for GarciaGate, that was upstairs in their function space, and for all the time I've been in the Bay Area, I'd never actually seen the museum. No more excuses: we went to see the place for real.

I didn't bother mentioning this to johnnyeponymous; he's busy with Cinequest.

Lisa Into ComputersCollapse )

I'm not sure we did complete justice to the place in just one visit. In particular, I faded out mid-afternoon and had to take a break at the Cloud Cafe. We may need to come back again and start halfway through the exhibits in order to spend more time reading them without thinking about how much our feet hurt.

After leaving, we popped over to a place where I could show Lisa the access to the lower Stevens Creek Trail, which gives an interesting view of the safety-training area way back behind Moffat Field. A storm was blowing in, and there was a gorgeous double rainbow that I couldn't fit into the field of my camera phone; however, a few minutes later the rain came, rather hard and cold, and we beat a hasty retreat to the Rolling Stone and drove back to the hotel, where we ordered out for pizza and called it a day.

Tomorrow we thread our way between two forecast storms, as the forecast calls for there to be no snow most of the daytime hours, and therefore we expect the chain controls to be lifted long enough for us to get back home to Nevada.

Current Mood: tired
