Nature's crochet

I love stumbling into previously undiscovered features in +darktable it allows me to experiment into fun looking results.

I still have tons to learn about photography and I finally acuired a few more items to take it to the next level. Hopefully I can use it for even better looking flower pictures in the future.

Chris Carter reveals some exclusive details on what we can expect from season 11 of +The X-Files

As always +Entertainment Weekly has the scoop and it looks like we're in for a treat, so here's a breakdown:

– 10 episodes
– 8 Monster of the Week + 2 Conspiracy
– William will "come to the fore"
– CSM Backstory (which will be interesting to compare to Musings)
– New angle on Skinner
– Shippers will "have something to look forward to"
– New comedic episode (episode 3) which sounds like a mix between Small Potatoes and Fight Club

Still no release date (sorry)

This will be a huge step forward if the aviation industry can pull it off

This will be a huge step forward if the aviation industry can pull it off

It's no secret that among the emissions from transportation, the aviation industry is a huge polluter and for the past few years many airlines have been trying to figure out a solution to decarbonise the industry.

So far the best proposals have mostly been focused on biofuels but now if short-haul flights can be reliably implemented on electric planes that should be a non-trivial chunk of daily flights becoming carbon free.

So far only +easyJet seems keen to implement it but I'm hoping this is the start of something much bigger.

Actress Karin Konoval will have a role in season 11 of +The X-Files

Actress Karin Konoval will have a role in season 11 of +The X-Files

If you don't know who that is she (in)famously played the mother of the Peacock family in arguably the most gruesome episode of the show Home.

However she won't be reprising that role but a new role (or roles) early on in the season. The way Chris Carter talks about it, it reminds me of Kristen Cloke's performance(s) in the season 4 episode The Field Where I Died but we shall see what the episode is like.

Of course it is far from the first time for an actor to have multiple roles across seasons of a show and it happened quite frequently in the show's initial 9-season run. Nicholas Lea being possibly the most famous example of that having played a victim in season 1's GenderBender only to return as Alex Krycek from season 2 onwards.
