Despite catastrophe my humor blog kept on going, as you might have seen on your Dreamwidth friends page or on your RSS reader, or for that matter on your LiveJournal friends page if you still have one. And if you're just like normal and watch stuff from here, there's my normal weekly review.
- On The New Computer, last week's hastily assembled big piece.
- What I Hope Is Not An Omen but was one of those dreams.
- Statistics Saturday: 22 Kinds Of Mongoose Or Rabbit Ordered By Center Of Mass and happy wedding, chefmongoose and bride!
- What’s Going On In Prince Valiant? February – May 2017 and oh I should've counted how many experience points they gathered for it.
- While I Continue To Stagger Back To My Feet I vamp and point out my mathematics blog and stuff.
- In Which I Am Insulted By My Reading expanding on that throwaway mention the other day.
- Also the Other, non-Alternative Free Weekly is Getting Demanding when I pay attention to the headline for a change.
- Really On The New Computer
And as we draw to the end of the last day of Pinburgh we go upstairs and look out from the bridge over the main floor. There we see:
Panoramic photo of bunny_hugger taking a photo of the convention floor. From the pedestrian bridge over the center of the main floor.
The main pinball floor as seen from the bridge, on the last day, when all the activity was over. Did you spot the FunHouse before bunny_hugger did?
Video games and some more of the pinball games, from the opposite side of the bridge. In the lower left you can see the Attack From The Back modded pinball game, at least a bit; it's behind that big posterboard.
Just people having fun. It may not be much of a scene but I like the composition. At the top right is the Black Knight 2000 with the frosted glass obstructing the playfield's view.
Last hours of playing video games and some pinball.
Quick view of the baseball park and one of the bridges as seen from the patio outside the convention center.
Trivia: The Bowery Theater, opened in Manhattan in 1825, burned down four times between 1828 and 1845. After that it survived another eighty years. Source: Waking Giant: America in the Age of Jackson, David S Reynolds.

PS: Getting Into Shapes, some convex-polygon center-finding stuff. Practical!
