    I didn’t finish yesterday’s post. Ended up sleeping until the sun came up. Oh well! I suppose I could write extra today, but I’m not going to push myself unless it feels right. Today’s goal is to simply respect Pomodoro technique. I have a timer going right now. The excellent Pomodoro app, Good Time. I […]

    Fri Apr 3 2020

    I forgive myself. I just want to start with that. Had a call with my therapist K. this morning. I started out the call in bad place, and I ended the call in a bad place. I woke up at 9AM and I took the garbage to the street, and some packages to the mailbox. […]

    I didn’t go to Sangha Service. I had a chance to wake up and go, but only with 3 hours of sleep under my belt. I decided to sleep. I’ll have another chance next week to attend! It’s 1:30PM. A. brought me her Co-dependents anonymous book. I’ll put it to good use! I gotta poop […]

    Wed Jan 15 2020

    I think I’ve made a connection which has informed me on exactly why I sometimes wake up completely exhausted. It’s food. I was snacking on trail mix and raisins last night just about an hour or two before bed. That food in my stomach made it almost impossible for me to fall asleep because I […]

  • Squadleader Checklist

    Squadleader Checklist

    This is a supplemental checklist for my OWI Squad Squadleader Guidebook. The guidebook goes into depth about different topics I think are important, whereas this checklist is useful to have on hand when actually squad leading. This checklist is meant to be used while playing the game, in times when it is not obvious what […]

  • Hauppauge WinTV-HVR-1950 on Ubuntu 14.04

  • Why haven’t we seen video from the Curiosity Mars rover?

    I was curious about this so I did some research. From what I gather, there are a few reasons. Curiosity has a 32Kbps connection to earth, or if using one of the two martian satellites as a repeater, up to 256Mbps. The connection is only usable for about 16 hours per earth day due to […]

  • Intrepid Ibex Graphic

    In my recent youtube video, lighter, I used a drawing of an Intrepid Ibex by icantthinkofaname-09 from deviantart. Since the image license is CC BY-SA 3.0 I am compelled to share the adapted work. I needed to replace the white background with a transparent one, so I opened the original png in inkscape and traced the bitmap, […]

  • Random Movie Idea

    Random movie idea I came up with while I was in the shower: Humans travel to distant planet full of robots. We share our history with the robots. Robots want to meet our ancestors, we tell the robots that our ancestors are dead. Robots suddenly realize the existence of death and start killing each other. […]

  • GIMP Desaturate Settings

    GIMP has a desaturate option. Basically it changes your color picture to a grayscale one. When you desaturate an image, you get a prompt saying, “Choose shade of grey based on:” with three options, “Lightness”, “Luminosity”, and “Average” I’ve always wondered what the difference was, so I tried all three on the same picture to […]
