A wonderfully clear night. Caught site of the rocket at 1:40 behind the trees. Really red tonight. Started the camera a bit too early, only get 15 seconds of shot and it finished before it cleared the trees. Also was aimed right at the church lights. Deleted the photo since it was so bad. Was able to follow it to around 5 minutes but it was to faint to pick up with the camera.

Rebuilt (after destroying by trying to update) the mythtv box. Got it to a state where it records and changes channels, does backups. The remote still does not work. Lots of problems with lircd. The entire config setup changed and no one (Iguana) updated their documentation.

Ashes of VictoryBooks
[17-Nov-2019]

Ashes of Victory by David Weber.
Sci-Fi: Military: 647 pages.
Volume 9 in the series Honorverse: Honor Harrington.

I think this is where the series starts to die. Mantiocres weapons become to powerful, and unreasonable. Haven has another couple of coups.

Cleaned the garage. Removed 2 garden beds I no longer use. Rebuilt 2 others. Ripped out a bunch of rotted landscape timbers from the blueberry beds but stopped because even rotted they were keeping a lot of grass out. Not sure if I will replace the removed ones or remove the remaining ones. Pressure washed the house. Cut back the pineapple guava, I am supposed to be able to drive a car between them and the house and it was getting hard to drive the lawn mower through there. Still need to burn the branches but it was to wet to get the fire going and stay lit. Sorted the stack of bills from the last 3 years. Transit of Mercury, dentist and termite inspection.
