Hapalopus sp. with prey

In the early evening I fed the Hapalopus sp. Colombia "large" sling I keep a mealworm, Tenebrio molitor. Even though the mealworm was quite large the small tarantula had no problem to subdue it.

I took the above photo using the macro lens and LED ring light I bought yesterday.

The 18th of May I also fed this specimen a mealworm.

A Graphical Introduction to Lattices

Because most lattice theory assumes a strong background in algebra, I think the results are not as well known as they should be. I hope to give a sampling of some lattices here, and a hint of their power.

Intuitive Programming - Comments

Comments are a topic of vibrant discussion. Ever since programmers could leave some text in the program that was ignored by the machine the debate started: “what’s a good comment, what’s a bad comment, why comment?”

Psalmopoeus cambridgei molted

In the early afternoon while checking the tarantulas I keep I noticed that the Psalmopoeus cambridgei had molted, probably the previous evening.

I have been keeping this specimen since the first of May 2020 and this is the first time it molted in my care.

A Conspiracy of Bones

It’s sweltering in Charlotte, North Carolina, and Temperance Brennan, still recovering from neurosurgery following an aneurysm, is battling nightmares, migraines, and what she thinks might be hallucinations when she receives a series of mysterious text messages, each containing a new picture of a corpse that is missing its face and hands. Immediately, she’s anxious to know who the dead man is, and why the images were sent to her.

In the evening I started in A Conspiracy of Bones, A Temperance Brennan Novel Book 19, by Kathy Reichs. I've read all the previous novels and enjoyed those a lot so I look really forward to this one.
