Fur Face Friday! Fur Face Friday!

Greetings folks, it’s Friday again, and the holidays are drawing close. I’m about ready to do nothing productive for the rest of the year. But before that, I’ll muster enough effort to select some snouts from last week’s excellent post (we had lots of high-quality submissions, so this was a very hard week to choose).

I do want them to have money to keep the sites up after all. Then I find myself browsing without an ad blocker, and get reminders of why I don’t:

Fur Face Friday! Fur Face Friday!

It’s Friday again, so that means it’s time for Fur Faces! Hopefully you and your pets had a wonderful Halloween without and doorbell freak outs or escape attempts and with many pet-appropriate treats!

Apparently when you drive an electric car, they don’t apply to you or something:

Time to restart F-22 production? Time to restart F-22 production?

Sources have been telling Tyler that as many as 17 F-22s were unable to escape Tyndall Air Force Base prior to hurricane Michael.

Because it looks like we are getting more of it!

The Atlantic has a very cool gallery of Jack Delano’s photos of Chicago’s railyards taken in the early 1940s:

The Air Force is getting some Saabs! The Air Force is getting some Saabs!

More specifically, they have awarded $9.2B (and probably a lot more to come) to the Boeing/Saab team to develop and build new trainers to replace the long-serving T-38. The main competitor was the Lockheed/KAI T-50, which was a more mature choice. The Boeing/Saab T-X was purpose-built for this competition.

My ad blocker crashed, and this is what I’m seeing on Kinja:

Fur Face Friday! Fur Face Friday!

Welcome all, to another edition of Fur Face Friday, your source for the best pets of the Kinjaverse! No time to chat this week, so let’s get to it!

Yeah I know it’s actually foam board and plywood, sorry for the misleading title.

The end of Opportunity? The end of Opportunity?

The Atlantic has a big story on a new deadline to revive the Opportunity rover on Mars:

The heatsink is too damn big! The heatsink is too damn big!

So I hit a snag with my build from earlier this summer. I apparently spent so much time worrying about whether the massive Noctua NH-D15 cooler was too tall to fit in the case (it fits, but it has at most a few mm to spare) that I neglected to consider whether it would actually fit properly on the motherboard (after…

It's done! It's done!

After KingTChalla’s post earlier today, I decided to challenge myself.

Bike-shares in China Bike-shares in China

So I missed these when The Atlantic posted their first gallery, but they’ve now posted a second, both with some amazing pictures of the ongoing (or possibly already burst) dockless bike-share bubble. The sheer magnitude is impressive, the waste is also staggering.

Fur Face Friday! Fur Face Friday!

It’s Friday, which means it’s time for all of Kinja’s best pets to come out and play! It’s also a day that ends in ‘y’, which means it’s time for Kinja weirdness! I’m not talking about the fact Kinja is duplicating most of my replies, or that ominous bookmark thing, I’m talking about permalinks not actually liking to…

So this was kind of cool:

New Toys! New Toys!

Despite whining about RAM prices as recently as yesterday morning, I’ve pulled the trigger on some stuff, some of which is now here (though the case won’t get here until Tuesday, expedited shipping is apparently expensive for steel boxes ).

And I thought our coins were inconvenient... And I thought our coins were inconvenient...

Almost there Google, keep working at it!
