    If you didn't know, I work from home.  Specifically in Salt Lake City.  I have a little office in my basement and I'm all alone all day.  It's rather lonely.

    So, I went out yesterday and decided to find a coworker to really inspire me to build great stuff for the RT community.  He is all signed up on RT and is a first member already.

    We also have several BIG announcements as well as what may be one of the most interesting discussion topics ever on Fan Service. I don't put this lightly; "YOU WON'T WANT TO MISS THIS EPISODE"

  • Why?

    21 hours ago


    Why do I keep coming back?

    Only like 2 of my friends ever update journals. I never post. I barely read anything on here anymore. Been debating just deleting my profile, but I'm too much of a sentimental being for that. I may just take it off my bookmarks list so I stop clicking in and being sad. 

    Shoot me a message on Facebook, or Xbox Live, or hangouts, or whatever if the site ever gets better.

    I would say it's been a great 12 years, but it was a great 10 years for sure.

    Today is Rosh Hashanah, the New Year according to the Jewish calendar. May this new year bring you and your family joy, happiness, and peace.


    It may be odd to think about a new year right now for most of us, as we are so engorged in the Gregorian calendar that the new year is still several months away. But a lot of the things we traditionally try to do at that time (change habits, make resolutions, make positive life changes, enjoy some nice champaign) are things can and should happen all the time.  So think of today as us Jews giving you a second chance at all of those New Years Resolutions you had for 2017.

    I meant to post yesterday but I had to go the the city to the doctor for some tests and it left me a little worn out...and don't even get me started on all the stuff I did today!

    Art project-wise I have been deciding on themes/topics for the pieces. I think at least one should be Halloween themed so I am debating between something with a skull or scary trees....Research is being done on-line and as usual I am downloading way too many "maybe I can use this" references.   

    I'm also thinking about some kind of animal one that might appeal to the men folk in my area. 

    Finally, as promised, here are the pours I did after coming back from the mountains. 





    Everybody in the path of a hurrican please stay safe!

  • Maintaining the Status Quo

    The number of cyclists in this town increases every new school year, but the percentage of responsible cyclists and irresponsible cyclists seems to stay the same (meaning both increase).

    I'm willing to wager that there are some schools out there still teaching bicycle safety. To all of those who do, thank you so much!

    Perhaps, there will be a critical mass where safe cycling will bleed over into most cyclists instead of a minority of them out of necessity. That would likely have far-reaching improvements to cycling amenities, causing a feedback loop of more people willing to ride with more amenities to support them, inspiring more cyclists, etc.

    I would love for conditions to improve enough to ride again.

    DiMono It's Back Baby!

    My internet's back on, which means I can reasonably spend time on it again. It was just one part of a cavalcade of weirdness I've been drowning in for the last week. Here are the hits:

    You might remember in my last journal I mentioned some weirdness in my shoulder. Here's what happened. On Thursday, I woke up and everything was fine. Did a bit of light stretching, sat down to do some stuff at the computer, and things were great. When I decided it was time for breakfast, I opened the fridge and reached in for the bread, and suddenly my right shoulder was just a giant ball of pain. I can move around over 20lbs at a time with it, but apparently reaching for the bread was the tipping point. I iced it, saw my doctor, took some Motrin, and waited. After the pain went down I was able to localize it, and as close as I can tell it's a strain in the tendon where the upper pec inserts into the shoulder joint. I can contract the muscle comfortably, but when I stretch it too far it hurts. So I'm avoiding stretching it too far. I can do most of my daily things just fine at this point, but every once in a while it reminds me it's there. It's getting better, and I'm hoping it will be healed by the weekend.

    My internet died on Friday. So I brought my BluRay player into my office and hooked it up to my second monitor, and went through a bunch of movies and seasons 1 and 2 of The Collector when I wasn't writing. Last night I watched Airheads before bed. I didn't even know I had that movie. This morning I tried to finish up season 2 of The Collector, but for some reason my BluRay player isn't sending the video feed up the HDMI cable any more. It sends the turning-on screen, but everything after that is blackness. My RCA audio feed is fine, it's just the HDMI video that's messed up - but only mostly. So I had to watch the last episode on my laptop instead. I was considering keeping the BluRay player hooked up in here, but if it's not going to work properly then I can't do that. At least it waited until the morning I got my internet back before misbehaving.

    Having more time on my hands than usual, I finally got around to wiring up an improvement to my desk setup. I'd bought a 4-way USB splitter over a year ago, with the intention of attaching it to the side of my desk along with a USB extension cable, to give me more ports on my laptop. It's set up now, and seems to be working fine. However, when I plug my cell phone into it, it tells me it's charging, but the charge never goes up. And I can't use it to transfer files back and forth for some reason. It shows up as accessible in Windows Explorer, but I can't see anything in it. But I can use the debug features to aid in my web development work. So it works ...kind of.

    In weird but good news, I'm not entirely sure why, but in the last few days I've seen massive speed gains from my abs challenge. A few days ago my time was over 26 minutes. Sunday it was 25:45. Monday it was 25:07. Then yesterday it was 24:16. This follows after a gradual 20-30 seconds/day improvement pace I'd been seeing for a week - suddenly it just started getting much faster. My abs are also more sore now than they've been in the last 19 days, which makes sense. There are still 11 more sessions left, and I'm hoping all of this increased strength will translate to growth over that time. Then I'll give them a break and focus mainly on other things. I also added in some upper body work yesterday, to make it a proper workout rather than just abs. The muscles I added? Shoulders. Because they were the only upper body muscles I was confident I could work without aggravating my pulled tendon in my shoulder area. Go figure. I also did my lower back, because don't skip your lower back.

    Oh, and also it's unseasonably warm and humid in Toronto right now, and I've already put my air conditioners away. So my apartment has been 80ºF and 60+% humidity for the last week. It should go down again ...next Wednesday. In the meantime, it's only going to get hotter. I don't want to hook my air conditioners back up again for so short a time period, but I might have to. In the meantime, it's open windows and fans.

    So anyway, that's what I've been dealing with for the last week or so. I am so looking forward to the weekend. What have you guys been up to?

  • NASA and a rant

    1 day ago

    gi_goku Keeper of Tacos

    To be honest, I hate the fact that I need to write this post to get it off my chest, because it concerns me so much. I am sure @Kiwi would agree with me on this.

    So president Trump (I have other words to call him but his actual name will due for now.) is thinking of putting a politician in charge of NASA (who more or less is denying science. (I am not going to get into a discussion about climate change at this time) A part of the US government that is actually about SCIENCE!) Personally I would put a former astronaut or an accredited scientist (technically an astronaut is usually an accredited scientist anyways and is the usual norm for NASA) in charge of an organization such as NASA, like how I would put an actual medical doctor as surgeon general or an actual teacher as head of the department of education. (In short I would not apply cronyism to any part of the top of the government)

  • Fact of The Day:

    1 day ago

    IronBridge Keeper of Knowledge

    Kiribati (an island nation in the central Pacific Ocean) didn't have a New Year's Eve in 1994.

    You see, this day was skipped entirely on the island in 1994, due to a change in time zones, from UTC−11:00 to UTC+13:00 and UTC−10:00 to UTC+14:00. 

    Previously Kiribati was divided by the International Date Line, with the western section of the islands being 24 hours ahead of its eastern neighbour, meaning that there were only four days in the week that official business could be conducted.

    To solve this problem, the date line was shunted east so all of the islands were in the same day. But to achieve this, the Line Islands and Phoenix Islands had to skip the last day in December all together.

    Thus there was no New Years Eve for them in 1994.

    I hate New Years Eve so this sounds like a dream to me.
