Beverage of the day: mocha

I've been back in Sampling since 11. Stressy College
Chick was doubling as herself and me today, so I
helped get some of the stuff set up and started.

Blood Pressure Cuff Manager is in today, as promised.
I helped her copy some photos from some attachments to
her hard drive.

Comic Pirate Super has been in and out of Sampling. We
discussed how future generations may have a lot easier
of a time dealing with the technology of the future
(since an important tech barrier was crossed in the
past century) and how this is a very important
technical resurgance and that restriction on political
freedom of thought leads to restriction on technical
freedom of thought. Technical and political freedom of
thought seem to go in the same people together, often
enough, so that when political free thought gets
squashed, the technical thoughts that go along with
the political big mouth don't get spread out by that
same big mouth.

Exhaustion is keeping me dizzy. I've been drinking
down coffee and tea, but it is not doing the requested
duty. Never mind that sheer willpower is keeping me
upright. All I have to do is change the disk when
prompted, right? Right? At least I'm here.
Gone away, gone ahead,
Echoes roll unanswered.
Empty, open, dusty, dead.
Why have all the Weyrfolk fled?

Where have dragons gone together
Leaving weyrs to wind and weather,
Setting herdbeasts free of tether;
Gone, our safeguards, gone, but whither?

Have they flown to some new weyr
Where cruel Threads some others fear?
Are they worlds away from here?
Why, oh why the empty weyr?
