Amazing to see Dutch Grandmaster, Anish Giri, lead the long-standing Dutch tournament in Wijk aan Zee. There are three players right on his heels. With just 3 rounds remaining, can he keep the lead?

Each of us can make a difference.
Politicians and visionaries will not return us
to the sacredness of life.

That will be done by ordinary men and women who together or alone can say,
“Remember to breathe, remember to feel, remember to care,
let us do this for our children and ourselves
and our children’s children.
Let us practice for life’s sake.”

Excerpt from a poem called Sharing Silence by Gunilla Norris:

“Silence brings us back to basics, to our senses, to our selves. It locates us. Without that return we can go so far away from our true natures that we end up, quite literally, beside ourselves.

We live blindly and act thoughtlessly. We endanger the delicate balance which sustains our lives, our communities, and our planet.“

How's this for a computer peripheral aesthetic?

This is the first stage of a mod for the Ploopy trackball to use ball transfer units (BTUs) as bearings for the ball.

This just about fits in the shell and feels good, so the next step is to try to modify the CAD file for the original shell.
