Up the coast


Christmas travel.


Review | 2022.09.03
Battles


Across the Obelisk for solo and co-op, replacing a shower cartridge, and a new PC case. And the usual stuff: Gloomhaven, current events, and investing.

Dall-e


Experimenting with Dall-e text inputs, moving a sandbox example offline, and troubleshooting jax/cuda.

Fog door


A birthday party, wood oil, board games, video games, and other stuff.

This is fine


A few rabbit holes regarding the current state of real estate and Meme Lorde himself.


Infopost | 2022.01.01
Charts


Omicron spikes but this could be a good thing, static web things, the gang plays Lunch Lady, and my wheel trading report card.


Review | 2021.11.27
Pre-omicron


Buckling down for the totally-predictable omicron surge by watching (anime) Cowboy Bebop, Wheel of Time, and audioreading Ringworld. Also: Back 4 Blood, Gloomhaven, Nioh 2, Mass Effect 3, and Risk of Rain 2. I should go outside. No, wait, omicron.


Storypost | 2021.09.09
Dialogue


Covid, ivermectin, and memes. Fantasy football is back and I play Nioh 2, Mass Effect 2, and Dying Light 1 a second time.


Storypost | 2021.07.12
Up and down


Screencaps and commentary from Virgin Galactic's first passenger flight... then they dilute. Some more Lordstown chat.

Upgrayedds


I check out Google search console, discuss graphics in static site generation, and talk SEO when I really don't care about SEO. Plus some investing, video games, and foot talk.


Storypost | 2021.04.06
Resistance


My winding path to vaccination, the perfect PUBG match, hardware multiboot, and discussions from my spicy millennialism list.


Infopost | 2021.01.02
The next break


It's 2021 now. Not too different from 2020 but people are more optimistic.

Staying warm by the fire


Whether it's the fireplace, the geforce, or sunny surf sessions, xmas vacation has been about staying warm.


Storypost | 2020.08.27
Go right


Covid continues, but the surge appears to have tailed off some. I guess this is the new normal until one of the many "almost-there" vaccines works out.


Storypost | 2020.08.08
Revisiting


Covid time is time to revisit old projects and entertainment.


Storypost | 2020.07.03
High/low country


Borderlands 3 Bounty of Blood, Barotrauma submarine design, Divinity, and some summer things.

Choose your home adventure


Having bigger fish to fry, I hadn't really touched the media room in about ten years, aside from swapping some electronics and furniture. It seemed like a modest house project was in order when we hit reopening stage 2.5. The plan centered around repainting a darker, more cinematic color and moving the audio wiring from being exposed to hidden behind moulding.


Storypost | 2020.05.31
Opening/closing


Covid eases. Less PUBG, more Payday. Some lockdown pastimes.


Storypost | 2020.04.05
Biohazards


The uncertainity of two weeks ago has given way to various stages of compulsory home isolation.


Storypost | 2020.03.14
Fourteen days later


Is this covid thing for real? One thing is for certain: the memes are good. Self-isolating with PUBG and Borderlands 3.


Infopost | 2020.03.01
Wild week


Pandemic (the board game) and quarantinis as the price of PPE explodes. Active investing vs passive investing. A bunch of video games.


Storypost | 2020.01.04
P-games only


Cattle's xmas Steam gift this year was Pako - Car Chase Simulator. It had me pretty well captivated for my first two-hour session. I think I worked out a little bit of strategy:

Looking back/forward


A year after going tankless it was time to flush the heat exchanger. At Ted's recommendation, Pops originally installed it with isolation valves, so hooking it up to a pump would be a wrench-free affair.


Storypost | 2018.11.04
Masks


Halloween, PUBG, and a trip to Seattle.

Since Jes enjoyed rafting, I thought maybe she'd like an ocean kayak for her bday. We did a sunset paddle before going to see Isle of Dogs.


Storypost | 2018.03.25

Between the Jeffsea xmas sweater party and being recruited to photo a couple of Christmas cards, seasonal garb has been in full effect.
