In the middle of summer where your shoes melt to the asphalt on the way to the entrance, the inside is frigid. EVERYONE there keeps a coat on their chair, some even wear mittens because its cold enough to cramp/give your fingers arthritis. The theory is that by constantly pumping in arctic air, the building owners can charge for more electricity.

I wait a few releases before attempting an upgrade. Each and every time so far I've needed to submit new bug reports for anaconda. Now apparently since FC18 (I'm on 16, trying to skip to 19.. for a few days. Everything is broken :( ) the DVD image can no longer upgrade, but apparently writes a preloaded image for fresh install only. PITA!

The second "larger" image was processed differently - more lightening of the dark end & over exposed. All the stars bloom in the new image as they've been enhanced stronger than the older image. Granted the internal filaments did move slightly, there is cheating to make it look more pronounced.

The drop wasn't near tall enough to watch the thinning of the drop tail, and you can see they messed with it to try and get it - they raised the armature holding the funnel after it had dropped causing it to sheer off under the funnel and plop to the side. If they had allowed it to fall further I imagine there would be a tapered very long, stringy, wispy filament.
