I added a new M.2 PCIe NVMe Solid State Drive to my computer today. It’s the second M.2 form-factor, and the third SSD. My original SSD, an OCZ Vertex 3, is still my system drive, but I am moving that to the OCZ RD400. The Samsung 960 EVO I got today will be for large media, like video editing and RAW format images from my D-SLR.
I can’t say zoom! Zoom! Or vroom! Vroom!
But I don’t have to wait long for anything, either.
On February 1, 2003, I was working at Walmart* in Bloomington when I heard about the ill-fated landing attempt of Columbia. I was shocked. I couldn’t work, I just sat in the loading dock listening to National Public Radio tell the tale of seven astronauts who spent 16 days in space, only to be lost in the landing. I was left alone, no one else was around. I demanded the flag be flown at half-staff. I don’t know if they actually did or not. I bought a spool of black ribbon and a pack of safety pins. I made black ribbons in memory of the crew. I wore a black band around my arm for the rest of the day. Whilst walking through the aisles of Walmart* working, I saw a woman of Indian descent with a birthmark around her eye. I believe that was Chawla and crew letting me know they were going to be okay. Ethereally. And they thanked me for my patronage to the NASA program. I don’t know how else to describe how I felt.
I now have a peacock with seven feathers on my arm in tribute to the Space Shuttle Columbia and her final crew.
Today I went to a campus event from a theatre company that works with kids. We all wrote stories. Here’s mine:
Pennies Under The Piano
Last Tuesday we made a decision to look under the piano, and do you know what we found? PENNIES! Green pennies. Red pennies. Purple pennies…. Even clear pennies. We started to collect the pennies into a pile, and the pile grew and grew. We realized that no two pennies were already alike. And we found out that no matter what colour the penny was, it was worth just as much as every other penny. We added up all the pennies, and found out we have enough to build Trump’s wall.
