Effort without Thinking, #65789: Moved the dish I use for Internet access 43 kilometers. Hung it on my new house. Trees blocked my line of sight. My house is sunk into the forest. There isn't enough clear ground to play baseball for kilometers in any direction. Google Earth can't see my rooftop, or for that matter, my driveway, my front yard or even the road I live on. So I spent a ridiculous amount of energy cutting - nay, hacking - a channel through the forest. End result? Wrong satellite, wrong line of sight. Six weeks off the 'Net (which is not necessarily a bad thing). Post effort analysis: ten minutes with a cup of espresso checking my calculations might have saved me ten hours running the saw. ...At least my winter wood is cut up.
