Throughout the day I’ve been trying to note things I would like to write updates about at the end of the day. The end of the day is approaching and I’ve selected a few topics. Today felt rather long. I somehow stuffed a ton of work/project progress into today. I guess I woke on the right side of the bed. I somehow woke up fully rested at 5:30am and gave up on snoozing. I wanted to get some jars boiling asap to sterilize so I could can a few more jars of pickles. I got six more canned and now
Today I began going through the Elegoo UNO starter pack. It has something like 25 projects/lessons to try with the kit. I only bought it because I want to make a robot that collects pinecones for me. I’m not sure why. Anyway I got the package open and installed the programming software on my laptop. The zero lesson was how to connect it. The first lesson was to make one of the LEDs on the board blink. The second lesson was using three different resistors to change the brightness of an LED. And the third lesson was using an rgb
After a lot of dragging my feet for about a week I finally made myself go through the process of converting some of our cucumbers into pickles. I’m not sure why I was dragging my feet. I enjoy canning. Especially water bath canning where I’m not standing next to a potential ER visit. At least that’s the thing the voice in my head brings up. I got 14 pints of pickles canned today. Nine of them were from overly large cucumbers that I halved and then quartered into spears. The last five were very large and I used them to
It’s Thursday morning. Almost 8am. I woke up at 6:15 and tried to snooze but was not successful. I haven’t opened my elegoo computer kit yet. I need to get to it but I was focused on the garden yesterday. There’s a bitcoin meet up in Boise at the end of the month. I think on the 25th. I doubt I’d attend but I’m interested in seeing what the local Bitcoiners are like. They’re anti alt-coins for sure. They encourage you not to bring them up if you attend. Haha. It sounds like a lot of Bitcoiners are that way.
A few months ago I cloned (rooted) some grape vine cuttings for my mom. One of her vines hadn’t made it through the winter so I went out and collected ten cuttings, scraped their ends, dipped them in rooting hormones, and suspended them in a dark fogging chamber to root. After many weeks they eventually began to sprout roots (some sadly didn’t and began to mold, which I removed from the chamber as soon as I saw) and eventually were transplanted to the garden to replace the dead vine. Now, we are working on landscaping around the property, adding some
I think I’ve been importing my YouTube content for about two months now. I obviously should have taken the time to have ChatGPT write a script to automate the process. I would have to learn what they are and how to use API’s though. Well at this point the finish line is approaching. I’ve gone from 2009 to 2021 pulling in vlogs, tutorials, practice sessions, unboxings/reviews, art timelapses, and so much more. It’s crazy now to review what I’ve made over the years. While importing the content manually may have been a mistake, in doing so I’ve been able to
