another flat. ouch! my poor car has had a rough 2018 so far.
Cleaning my desk this morning, i discovered many things. I was most impressed with the number of loose screw. I am not going to even mention the number of twist/zip ties. did i remember there was a wood veneer under all that clutter? Still lots to be done before my office is anywhere approaching clean.
As you can see, it did turn out to be hardware, a GPU and CPU (ouch!). The flash storage was not it, but I figured that out eventually. This has been an issue since October! With many fixes attempted. It was a bit of a blow to my pride eventually having to turn to Apple, but they stepped up and got it done with only mild frustration on my part. Plus, they picked up the tab as my warranty is certainly expired. There comes a time when you realize that a fix would require more parts then you had at hand. I have been enjoying my functional desktop again, just in time for the new iMac Pro to make it obsolete.
check out 💩.be3n.com. for no reason at all.
Trading technology with my friends left me with some exciting new toys. Now with a bit more time since these devices were introduced there are lots of interesting demos for each. Though similar, these are very different devices and not intended to be used together. I am excited to see what they are capable of. Anything to replace the flat pointer driven systems we seem to be stuck with. I think I’ll integrate my Leap Motion with the Oculus i have on loan. So far, it’s hard to type without triggering my Myo Constantly.
I only just learned of the passing of a beloved pet. I lived with Tiny for more then 7 years and 3 locations. She was brilliant, manipulative, lazy and an incredibly fierce predator. We shared a special bond and i will never forget her. . .
Lets not forget her unfinished project.
The fun “i️” i bug in iOS 11.1 on a 6s plus.
UPDATE: Fixed in iOS 11.1.1!
It was 10 years ago today when I decided that the virtual world needed a new URL and somethingdotsomething.com was purchased! It was another year before the site got any content and even longer before it was any good. (citation needed)
I have enjoyed publishing here. I hope to continue and to add more and grander works as well.
