Updating your resume and project portfolio is really exhausting… How the heck did we get all that done over the last few years?

Central Oregon

Did an overnight camp out and some exploratory day hiking this weekend on the Deschutes River. Followed the old railroad on the East side of the canyon. It was really lovely with big open spaces, high desert grasslands and lots of blue sky and sun.

This picture was taken with my cell phone from the campsite. Had not seen so many stars in forever.

Tent and stars by the river.

Well…

That was unexpected. I suddenly find myself with free time on my hands.

Yep, I get it. I am being intentionally vague, but I have to be until I don’t…

Breakfast in San Diego

Jess found us a wonderful place for breakfast over in Barrio Logan, called Maggie’s Cafe. I highly recommend it. We are trying the chili relleno omelette and some other yummies.

Thoughts this week…

“The spirit of resistance to government is so valuable on certain occasions, that I wish it to be always kept alive. It will often be exercised when wrong, but better so than not to be exercised at all. I like a little rebellion now and then. It is like a storm in the atmosphere.” – Thomas Jefferson 1787

Quick VR Project

I only have a small space to play VR and wanted a way to keep myself centered while standing. So after reading through some posts here, I scrounged stuff out of the shop and put together this mat.

I used 1 package of the typical shop puzzle mat from the local “Harbor Freight” and sliced a few rounds of Nerf ball ammo in half to make the “braille” dots for my toes. The bottom has strips of Velcro hook to keep it from sliding around on the carpet and everything is put together with duct tape and hot glue.

Total construction time was about 40 minutes and I think the total cost was about $12.

I hope it helps other folks who might be looking for a similar solution.
