moe joe work

Bah. I’ve been working for like 12 or 16 hours trying to figure out how to keep a button visible, but I cannot figure out this spaghetti of code, domains, css, and browsers to figure out what is hiding it.

今朝仕事が大変でした。なんでそうになったわからなかった。 This morning work was crazy. I could not figure out what happened.

今日ビーチに焼肉を食べに行く。クリスさんとベッカさんにお出でのメールも らった。 We’re going to eat bbq on the beach today. Chris and Becca invited us to join them.


これをLINEでみんなに書きました。 I wrote this to everyone on LINE:

今日は風が強くて皆と遊んで楽しかった。たくさん準備してくれた人に感謝‼ The wind was strong, but I had lots of fun today. Thanks to everyone who prepared!

誘ってくれてありがとうございました。 今度カラオケに行こう! Thank you for inviting us! Let’s go to karaoke sometime!

mt3 gotcha

12:58 Saturday 14 July 2018 JST

Working on MT3 today I had a funny idea. There were two marbles ready to roll off the track and I realized it would be great for the spoonhead guy to catch them. So I had to erase eight frames, but they were not too hard to recreate, and the end result is great.

The frames are shown in the last second of the video above.

Next I’ll have the manager decide what to do about the orange ball not working correctly, as that side of the stage will be in front of the camera soon.

Eventually, too much time will be spent moving the marbles up to the top of the track. I need to make a teleportation thing to move marbles around. It would just about require having half marbles so one can go halfway into the thing on both sides.

I was going to write the totals, but for some reason, pages 2 and 3 of my videos on Youtube say there are no videos. Pages 4 and beyond are okay…

no retroactive backlinks

05:00 Saturday 14 July 2018 JST

I keep getting spammed by people looking for backlinks.

Heyyy Rob,

So this is super random… but stick with me. I know you’re familiar with a tool called Trello because you linked to the Trello website from this page: http://robnugen.com/blog/2013/02/06/a-few-things-in-my-brain-at-4am/

I’m a huge fan of the platform so I thought I’d give you a heads up about a review I just published on it. It’s 3,000+ words long and very thorough. You can see it here: (REDACTED)

If you like the review, would you consider linking to it from your page?

If you don’t like it, I’ll sit and cry in the corner for a while.

I linked to Trello because it is a service I liked at the time. Plus, that was back in 2013; robnugen.com/journal is a web journal, not a web site, so I am not going to go back and update old content. That shit is pristine just as it was written.

Plus, crying can be good.

I dug around on the guy’s site and found a lot of clickbaity titles, but maybe that is what it takes to make a buck around here.

Last night we discussed presenting a day-long workshop to men in Tokyo. My vision is to expand the work to new men around Tokyo and eventually Japan. I am looking for 2 or 3 men to help me present the workshop in October or November this year. I hope to meet with whoever steps up and create a plan by early August.

Today Tomoko seemed quite entertained with the magnitude of Marble Track 3’s Construction. It worked well to show her Marble Track 2 because she soon asked how I made it.

Nowadays at JB, I teach 5 lessons on Wednesdays, 20% more than the past year of lessons.

I think I finished adding ARC Cycles to CSV reports for AB. I mean I finished, and I think they are what AB wanted.

I think my passport expires soon; I gotta get that sorted. Because no one checks my passport unless I leave the country, I figured I can let it be expired for a while, but now I realize that may not be a good idea.

Our 6pm students seem to be late. It’s after 5:59 now. Not late! 16 seconds to spare.
