I deleted over 1000 lines of code today. That was the easy part. I worked on the watch on lunch; board rev 2.2 is at the fabricator. I fixed some things at work, made some other things work better, then I came home. I shopped, I cooked, I cleaned (although not as much as my lovely wife). I used a trick I learned from a cartoon to make my sauce less salty. Archer, thanks. Now it’s time to sleep.
This was what, sometime in April? Vlad is a friend from the internet, I think, and he’s definitely ‘from the internet’. His birthday party was app themed. My app was “in development” because I’m terrible at costumes. My wife, the genius, went as a polaroid app, and took pictures and printed them on demand. There was an instagram, a draw something, an ATM app, a recipe app… you get the picture.
The weekend was cray. 12 hours of work on saturday on the watch board, and 8 hours of drinking on sunday. There was no time to blog. Still, if this is a four day a week enterprise, that’s not too bad. I may also start posting some things from the backlog, beacuse my daily grind is a lot of the same old construction, busses, and sidewalks.
It seems like it’s today every day. I tend to lose steam towards the end of the week, because work + watch dev + photography is a lot of stuff to do. I thought today was wednesday until late in the afternoon. I’m glad tomorrow is Friday.
So, I missed a day. I did a lot of programming in the last 48 hours, and I probably could have done a post last night, but I couldn’t think of doing anything. I actually couldn’t think at all. One of the reasons I got so backlogged was being to rigid about rules. So here’s yesterday and today.
Today was a lot of gray, outside. Inside, I did a lot of work, catching up for being distracted by the news last week. I have a feeling it’s only going to get worse for a while (weeks? months?), before it gets better. On the plus side, I made a ton of headway in a complex domain. I ran into a friend walking home from the BART, and we caught up andd talked about things for a few blocks. A turned-off TV asked me “RU OK?” and I am. Then we got to see some other friends, just home from Ireland. They brought me whiskey, which I’m now saving for a special occaision.
Before you get to the blog post, you are aware of what’s happening in Ferguson, MO , right? Good. If not, go read some news. I should note that the wikipedia article is out of date, and leaves out a lot of details. Everything has gone to hell again tonight, by all accounts.
I’m going to try someting, because the mountain of images I have to edit and post here isn’t getting any smaller, and I’m not going to stop shooting, either. So, I’m going to try to post all of the images from today, today. Today was a barbeque and a walk to CVS. Met a bunch of cool folks at the barbeque. Soph made her mac and cheese, not pictured, but good all the same. It was, overall, a success.
Then there was the epic journey for benadryl. Well, a 15 minute walk, at least. The LED streetligts are weird; looks like Gregory Crewdson designed them for one of his shoots. That’s all I can do right now.
Fog and gray and dark. I’ve been shooting more lately, socially, sort of the way I used to. I’m dicsovering my camera is absolute shit in those sitations I used to love; slow auto focus, slow to wake up, just slow. I was going to replace it soon, but it seems it’ll be a few more months. At least my car is paid off, so I can save pretty quickly.
For all the people that only follow this blog, and might have been wondering, I’m still here. Still kickin’. Trying to post more frequently. The backlog is still there, waiting. The projects are going, slowly. We’ll see.

This was the night I was supposed to get on the bart, but was so distracted and out of it from work, I got on the bus and came home instead. Coding induced temporary aphasia. Sophia and some other folks were already at the bar, so I walked. Nice sunset light, why not?
