Wow. The parts and components are so small. A long way from the tiny transistors my mom assembled at TI in the late 50's. And even the integrated circuits that I worked to image in the mid 60's look like horse and buggy technology compared to these components. We have Ma Bell to thank for the amazing development. It will be amazing to see the next 20 years developments.

As for Mercury day, I spent the day loading drivers and software. I filled the time during the software installations by continuing to empty the bookshelves, cleaning each item as I go. My life is pretty boring by most standards. But it suits me just fine, even if I occasionally misplace Mars day.
