Finished Walking Day 20

It’s now nearly 4am Thursday 6 May 2021 (according to my computer). To my feet and legs, it’s early on Walkday. My brain knows it is now Day 21, but this entry is about Day 20:

I did not take many pictures on Day 20, compared to other days. Photographs seem to happen more in the morning, but as I get tireder and tireder from walking, the pictures taper off as I’m like bah, who cares about seeing more flowers that are not really differentiatable from other pics I have taken.

Day 20 things:

  • saw a two car train and tried to take a video but realized later I apparently did not hit record until after the train went by.
  • saw species of little yellow flowers that I had not seen before
  • talked to Brian in Corpus for about an hour while sharing stories of mapping. Very fun talking with him as we have similar senses of humor.
    1. “everything was going fine until I talked to those guys in Corpus”
    1. “here’s your diploma!” after walking through flowerbed on campus
  • almost recorded Joetsu Line shinkansen, albiet far away
  • Surprised to see Doge is up to 77 yen, and has gone up 11000% just in 2021.
  • Installed Folding@Home and signed up for the Doge team https://www.dogecoinfah.com/doc/gettingstarted.html#getstarted on my laptop and on my Vultr server (pinning its CPU to 100% (up from 4% over the past years))
  • Nearly weaned myself off aidungeon.io, helped by the response “The AI doesn’t know what to say. Alter, undo, or try again.”
  • Walked across Shinano River with water pouring through Myokan Weir, a word I did not know the meaning.

Day 20 was:
