Ported

To "port" is to bring things over from elsewhere. They will become either new pages or major updates. Small pages and minor updates are not noted.

a note on article dates

  • Ported articles are given a timestamp of 00:00.
  • The dates from the oldest articles (2005 or so) are likely wrong, as they were ported from a still-older content management system.

    • Just as this "five things" process exists, I had an earlier series of notes tracking a still-earlier porting process. In due time, I'll go through that list and correct dates as best I can.

Spectral - (2016 movie) image

An optics specialist is sent to investigate the unusual readings the military is getting from his equipment.
