Pictures... pictures of our pinball face's places from space

Foof, that's sweet. Indeed, I need to figure something like that out for my wireless keyboard.

Right now it's completely awkward where to lay the keyboard when not in use. And then, when it -is- in use, the keyboard's laying flat on my torso, and I can't really see it. So as a non-touch typist, I'm constantly mistyping things and getting irritated.

Some kind of standing affair like yours that rolled and swiveled would be really nice. It's a little too articulated for me to try to build by hand, so something out of the box would be nice. Just need to do some searches online and see if there's anything that's good and priced nicely...

Levo has started making a stand like mine for a laptop if you have one. I think the laptop sets on the stand so you can't turn it upside down like I can with the tablet stand. There is also a stand for reading books.

Great idea @Anthias, pics from space!
It is so interesting to see that all our own little slice of this earth is so different from one another.
From inner city to manicured lawns.
My house pic from google maps, I am guessing it is in December(summer for us) about is 4-5 years ago.
Come on google maps update your shit.
Seriously 80% of the time it is all green and I never stop mower, cheers!

My place from space is set to change! I'll be selling up and taking a new job. The new job involves me taking the wife and kid and living on site. We get a beautiful big house the employer no longer lives in, in return for keeping the gardens alive and tidy. So why do we get a house? Well, google didn't even bother getting a nice close up, it's so far from everything. Nearest town is about 60km away. And yep, the driveway is also a runway.

@Anthias,
Wow. Sounds like a proper adventure there, matey!

Do you have much gardening experience?
Are the local poisonous fauna slathering their mouthparts in anticipation? D:

What... what happened?
Sudden onset of Diabetes. I was losing weight fast, got to first available Dr appointment Dr sent for tests and said I could go back to work. Next day bam DKA crash, body started to shut down, wife took my temp as 34.9 Celsius! got me to the nearest hospital I've no idea if she sped, I was out of it by then, don't remember much but they stabilised me and transferred two hours by road to another hospital and I've been here ever since. Lost about 15kg in a couple of weeks.

Holy shazbat, I'm sorry to hear that, Marty.

Sounds like the very worst timing, you being distracted with all the other stuff.

So what's the outlook, if you don't mind my asking?

I look like a skeleton from Davey Jones's ship but I'm out of the woods and feeling fine. Getting the hang of the insulin etc. Once it's under control I'll get my muscles back, and my new employer is fantastic about it all.

Wow, but also good to hear.

With my CFS/ME, I'd probably be in major trouble if I developed D-II.

My diet is mostly vegetarian and low glycemic load, but I've also drunk my share of booze across my 40's. Not sure how much damage that all did, but no doubt it was significant, i.e. lots of alcohol-sugar rushes for my pancreas to deal with.

For years drs have told me I'm not at risk because I'm a good weight etc. So much for that. Also meant I had little to lose when it happened

IANAD, but that sounds like a borderline lazy, irresponsible thing for them to say.

Weight is a big factor, but it's not the only factor. Diet is huge, for one thing.
