Happy birthday to mishamish!

Little better; less brainfogged.

Auctions y0! Today's your last chance on fingerless mitts and hilariarex jewelry. Also I forgot to mention that my custom baby blanket, if in the recommended yarn, will be machine washable. Which is a great asset for a baby blanket, I feel.

Elayna will be continuing her story today.

Daily Science
Late last year, English scientists created the first real-world instance of spin ice, a long-hypothesized type of crystal that can behave as a magnet with only one pole. These monopole magnets could form the basis of quantum computing memory, so it was disappointing to find out that the spin ice only behaved as a monopole at -454 degrees Fahrenheit. Scientists at Imperial College London have now revived the dream of monopole quantum memory by creating artificial spin ice that works at room temperature.

Work, then hanging out with lightcastle! <3 Also Diesel.

Nitpick: rachel_swirsky is looking for short fiction from the past decade with Jewish characters and/or authors, so I'm just going to have to mention the novels I checked on before I read her post more carefully.

Jo Walton's Small Change trilogy (Farthing, Ha' Penny, Half a Crown) and Tim Powers' Three Days to Never.

Thanks for pointing to young me/now me. I don't think I would ever have found it, otherwise, and I'm finding some of the pictures surprisingly affecting. There's one where the old picture shows a man with a mustache and old-fashioned hat, looking stiff and stern, clutching a bundle as he crouches by a statue. The new picture shows a relaxed woman sitting beside the same statue. My first thought was, "Transition?" Then I realized the young woman had probably been a baby, inside the bundle of blankets the man was holding.

The best ones are the ones where you can tell they tried really hard to duplicate the original poses/expressions. This one is my favorite.
