Been wonderfully busy with Marble Track 3. Bought a new camera which I plan to use for stop action photos, but before setting it up, I needed to make an extension to my desk so the camera would be far enough away to take photos properly.
I made three towers made of three sticks each, each stick made of two pairs of bamboo chopsticks, unsplit.
It took 1.7 hours to get through the process of uploading those images (mostly because I wanted to rename them based on the photo date). Now my computer is saying too many open files so Hugo cannot create the site. Bah.
I put CBs new FS server up a couple weeks ago, and today I finished creating their front and backend servers on Ubuntu 14. Still just staging for now so they can decide.
Weird thing: they are going to revamp the entire site and I’ll apparently no longer be working for them on June 14th. BUT I sorta kinda doubt they will actually be ready by then. Anyway, we will see.
I screwed together two shelves to make one shelf on which to put the pyramids on which to put another shelf, on which to put my camera on a gorilla grip tripod. It is all wobbly, but once I get the placement confirmed, I will tighten it up.
I just bought a camera who I might name Mr Snaps. That’s the first name which came to mind. Dragonframe stop action animation software supports it.
Amazon is eating the world: I bought the camera and requested free delivery, scheduled to arrive within 21 - 25 hours from now.
I just downloaded v0.90 of Blockstack https://github.com/blockstack/blockstack-browser/releases/ and sent 0.01 BTC to what is apparently my wallet so I can buy a username.
1 confirmation so far.
6 confirmations yay!
Interestingly, I looked up rap.id (not available) and vap.id (available for 0.7BTC). thunderrabbit.id cost 0.008BTC.. (*) so I guess they go by name length (etc) to calculate the price.
(*) The price for thunderrabbit.id claimed to be 0.008BTC, but now my blockstack wallet shows 0 BTC. And blockchain.info shows something interesting https://blockchain.info/address/3AXaax3H6PfDdu76oTwKMTDVMoKUJBfo3k?show_adv=true
Still working on a name for the circle which I had been calling the co-gender group. Anyway, our second meeting was great last night. Five members in attendance, and we practiced exercises from Week 2 of A Circle of Men. After the circle, some members expressed interest in exploring this further, so I guided them through clearing charges, with the remaining member holding space.
I woke up just before my alarm, thought huh that’s weird because I do not normally sleep 5 hours in a single sleep cycle, came to my computer to discover I woke up an hour before my alarm. Ah. That makes sense.
As a result of hot CPU, I am delaying my youtube livestream to my 0 followers of Marble Track 3 creation.
I upgraded my Dogecoin wallet to the latest version, so my CPU is working to catch up all the transactions.
After working in Ebisu, I walked to Shibuya then took the train to Harajuku and hung out with Mike R for an hour in Harajuku. He said he was feeling much better after his schedule opened up. Looks like he will attend Tokyo Men’s Circle soon as well.
After having gotten the servers upgraded ahem (1⁄2 of) the servers, I no longer feel like I did for most of April and the first half of May, all panickly (*) like ohmygodicannottakeasinglebreak!
(*) nice misspelling; I think I will leave it
