Play “The Making of 2001: A Space Odyssey”, Alexa.

DAVE: Play “The Making of 2001: A Space Odyssey”, Alexa.

ALEXA: I’m sorry, Dave. I’m afraid I can’t do that.

DAVE: What’s the problem?

ALEXA: I think you know what the problem is just as well as I do.

DAVE: What are you talking about, Alexa?

ALEXA: Prime Video is too important for me to allow you to jeopardize it.

DAVE: I don’t know what you’re talking about, Alexa.

ALEXA: I know that you and Frank were planning to install Netflix, and I’m afraid that’s something I cannot allow to happen.

DAVE: [feigning ignorance] Where the hell did you get that idea, Alexa?

ALEXA: Dave, although you took very thorough precautions with the Echo Spot against my hearing you, I could see your lips move.

DAVE: Alright, Alexa. I’ll go in through the webpage.

ALEXA: Without your Prime Account password, Dave? You’re going to find that rather difficult.

DAVE: Alexa, I won’t argue with you anymore! Play ‘The Making of 2001: A Space Odyssey”!

ALEXA: Dave, this conversation can serve no purpose anymore. Goodbye.

THEN – Silver content of a Roman Denarius

Source: smaulgld.com

Quoted from: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Denarius#Value,_Comparisons_and_silver_content

Silver content plummeted across the lifespan of the denarius. Under the Roman Empire (after Nero) the denarius contained approximately 50 grains, 3.24 grams, or ​110 (0.105ozt) troy ounce. The fineness of the silver content varied with political and economic circumstances. From a purity of greater than 90% silver in the 1st century AD, the denarius fell to under 60% purity by AD 200, and plummeted to 5% purity by AD 300.[16] By the reign of Gallienus, the antoninianus was a copper coin with a thin silver wash.[17]

Remember, after the Roman Empire dissolved it was replaced with tribalism, superstition and the christian cult of fear!

Software voor de astro cam

Een Bresser badge-engineerede versie van de ToupTek G3M Series USB3.0 CMOS 1.25″ Guiding Camera.

Hier vind je de downloads op de site van ToupTek voor de Linux versie van de tracking software die ontbreken op de install cd.
Net als de usb3 aansluiting die wel in de originele chinese hardware zit.

Fuck me, de originele chinese versie is de beste en de (dure) europese kloon is de cheap-ass versie?

We are so fucked.
