So if I can't bitch to my telescope bro's then I can't bitch to anyone!! LOL. So, I'm in the middle of demolition hammering my stone floor out of my house. With all the rain in cali this winter I noticed crack in my concrete and the retaining wall cracked. Not as bad as it sounds, the cracks up front are from water expanding underneath the home, and the cracks in the wall (one foot wall not too bad) are from the prior owner putting in these ugly cold dirty stones as flooring. So I'm ripping out the entire stone floors. Hard work. Now I remember why I'm a scientist with a desk job!! LOL Good to do real work once in a while though.

Anyway, I'm about to put in hardwood flooring all over my house, and rip up my deck next weekend and fix the retaining wall and also.. drumroll please... put in a pier for my scope and with the skyshedpod arriving this next week I'll have an epic house and telescope, along with likely a broken back. lol.

Anyway, all these issues came up on the fly, and so I apologize for not being more into this site Trevor and I started. Thanks Mark for getting involved and going off on the programming, and all of your suggestions. My programmer Medley is back and wants to get busy so we're likely going to crack a beer tomorrow to celebrate my floors being out and Kalani hopefully winning the Katin surf contest, and we'll be astrogabbing about programming this site better.
