I have been on enough RTL-SDR amateur radio hacker forum threads to know that NYPD is spending $400m to gut and replace its radio infrastructure with some vendor locked Encryption Solution that was proven crackable by some VTech Nickelodeon laptop you could win by finding the prize at the bottom of a cereal box in 2005

Immigrant families, esp vegetarian ones, more so health-conscious ones, have interesting Thanksgiving menus. My household included.

1, 2: "bisibele baath" except no lentils and cauliflower rice instead of rice.

3. "paayasa" w chia seeds instead of rice. Garnish looks too much but is just the right amount once mixed.

Both dishes made Karnataka style (South Indian).

Followed by 13.3km walk:

A couple more pictures from the 13.3km Thanksgiving Day walk โ˜๏ธ.

I love winding trails and think they're that way by design probably because most people like winding trails. But I find photographing winding trails hard because it's in many ways like capturing stone skipping over water.

Anyway, I like the first picture here because it captures 7-8 turns in the trail. The second picture captures 5-6 turns.

13.3km Thanksgiving Day walk on a trail I didn't know existed in the city. The trail is very well designed: mostly by a creek w forest on at least one side (mostly both sides). It connects to many residential neighborhoods yet is away from homes. Small parts of the trail are behind homes but w lot of separation and greenery. ๐ŸŒณ๐Ÿšถโ€โ™‚๏ธ ๐Ÿ˜€

Again, because we started late, left about 2.5kms of the trail un-walked (5km total). Gotta do better.

16.2km river walk yesterday. Mostly sunny and occasionally windy, also chilly when in shade, but overall good walking conditions.

It was good opportunity to get that 25km walk I've been longing, but it wasn't to be: should have started at least an hour earlier and carried jackets. Next time. ๐Ÿคž

Also, fortunate to have so much nature and facility all around, not to forget wonderful company, to enjoy every day. ๐ŸŒŸ

6.6km walk today in fantastic walking weather. Happy with both the pace and HR. Plus, it was great to see the neighborhood pond after nearly a month. The fountain looked especially nice.

In the pics, I love how the colors, sunlight, and shade come through. I also like how the water particles stand out in the second pic but feel I could've done better.

And apropos the season, the walk's trace looks like the outline of a Christmas tree. ๐ŸŒฒ

6. Mugs of Goodwill: 2x like-new Anthropologie "bicycle mugs". Nice hand-made look and feel. My "alternate" mug for hot chocolate.

Sadly, found a crack in left mug. That's a first but will be careful next time. โš ๏ธ

Each mug has a cartoon tandem bicycle going all around, making it hard to get the full picture in one shot. So, I placed the mugs such that most of what's on the body is visible in a single picture.

Mugs are generally $0.89 (89 cents) at Goodwill. If you are patient, careful, and lucky you can find excellent, like-new, and sometimes even brand new mugs.

A short, relaxed 4km walk last Friday to get our legs back on home turf. Many "bird heavens", I mean plants bearing colorful berries. Also the neighborhood waterfall was back on (had been diverted for repairs).

18.3km hike/walk yesterday (Monday) on "Panoramaweg Ost" in Pfaffenhofen an der Ilm. The map says 4hrs 15mins for 16.5kms and 178m elevation but we walked a bit more and uphill (280m elevation) in 4:09 active time, 4:55 total time.

This was the last outdoor activity on this Bavarian visit, but there will be more and I can't wait to be back to see friends and family again.

Last Saturday, 11.25km hiking, trekking, and climbing Taubenstein and Rotwand in the Bavarian Prealps. Rode the lift up to save time and thus the trek and climb up was not too demanding. The steep hike down to Spitzingsee however was taxing, as reported by my glutes the next day. ๐Ÿ˜ฃ

6.8km hike yesterday (Thursday) in a different Bavarian forest (this one belongs to a city). Fantastic network of world-class trails with lots of activity and learning "pfade" (paths) for kids and adults.

My words and pictures don't do justice. I recommend a visit to experience it yourself.

OK - we have a really nice uplink protocol at @OpenResearchIns for #opensource #amateur #satellite work, but the interleaver/deinterleaver is more cumbersome than it should be. The deinterleaver is a step in the published design. This relates to the uplink receiver on an amateur payload or central node in a ground deployment.

No time like the present to rip it out and make it better.

If you have #interleaver experience and want to join the fun then and join the Slack.

Such a nice short documentary about โ€œOutsider Musicโ€ -

I didnโ€™t know any of the artists mentioned in the video, but I will sure listen to some Daniel Johnston. The video comments are also quite wholesome.

It reminds me, that you should create art primarily for yourself, without the need for perfection. After all, you donโ€™t need to be perfect in every field - the main purpose of creating things should be having fun!
