    Irregular heartbeat confirmed.

    For the first time in my life, I saw a cardiologist today.

    He confirmed the finding on the EKG I had two weeks ago: "right branch bundle block." In short, something is making it difficult for the bundle of nerves that tells the right side of my heart to send blood to my lungs to do its job.

    The first reading of one of my fics!

    Fanfiction Reader has rendered a voice-synthesis version of Changeling Space Program on YouTube! The program doesn't have any sense of timing, and it stumbles badly trying to pronounce unfamiliar words, but it provides a way to read (or re-read) the story without staring at a screen!

    That was... incredibly boring...

    For those wondering, I think I've fixed all references to Martian seasons in The Maretian.

    I think.

    By all means, if you see one, let me know.

    In the new revised calendar it's mid-winter on Sol 6, spring equinox is roughly Sol 103. Summer solstice will be Sol 296. Anything that says or suggests otherwise needs correction, so let me know.

    Why do I bug over fiddly things like this?

    Okay. I've assumed that, since in The Martian Mark Watney had twelve hours of sunlight after driving to recharge his rover during the Pathfinder trip, that he arrived during Martian summer. That makes sense, since if you were given a choice by orbital mechanics you'd choose early summer, when solar cells would be at maximum efficiency but before the onset of dust storm season.
