My lumen collection
One could conclude from the vigorous workout Ukraine experts are getting from Monday to Friday each week (lineage drops off during Iranian kamikaze drone attacks) that most of those benefiting from it are doing so at work. If you’re one of them, do keep in mind that there’s no shame in having your employer pay for services that make your job easier. Hell, I’ll even send an impeccably typeset $ETH receipt.
Some time this weekend – during the time it took for my aging, Mukuzani-perforated brain to wrap itself around (come to accept, perhaps) the fairly rudimentary and time-proven concept that a variable created inside a function won’t necessarily be available the next time the function is called, particularly if called from an entirely different document – the soggy hagiography below containing carrot sticks in water was pushed to the back of my refrigerator and satirized mercilessly.
I accept full responsibility.
I should confirm that these jackets are NOT hoaxes, or some form of cruel joke, and that yes, lifestyle-slathered princess ditzes earning six-figure UAH salaries to rephrase the same fictions of urban hip every Saturday (to the delight of twelve remaining Kyiv Post subscribers and the wall-eyed incomprehension of everyone else) get book deals. So it goes.
So, my advice: skip the book, read the summary.
Our decision to forego writing about Phases 3 and 4 of the bloody mess and instead make use free time to do something more aerobic is resolute. There’s a place for news and rambling commentary about the development of post-war ultra-competitive Ukraine-style politics, but definitely not here.
About the war. It’s over. Putin lost. De-occupation is underway.
About lumens. Lezyne’s Hecto Drive 500XL has built-in cooling fins and cutouts for side visibility. Its single LED design provides an impressive maximum output of 500 lumens and eight output modes, including a Daytime Flash mode. It offers up to 20 hours of total runtime, charging is simple with an integrated cable-free USB stick and the light straps securely to a variety of handlebar shapes and sizes. I’m happy with it.
