Christ Almighty, dawg… hang in there!  

I should be good, this is just them removing the work they did in June. Hopefully I don’t go all jaundiced again, that wasn’t fun.

had to take a break from working on my arduino projects because amazon keeps delaying packages and I’m still waiting for some critical components to be delivered.

so instead I worked on this today; Khrone altar of skulls lit by 6 red LEDs(one for each face moulded into the side), with a push-button switch and a micro-USB charging port in the bottom, powered by a 3.7, 250mAh LiPo battery.

Had a yard sale and got rid of about 80% of our belongings. Slung it all cheap, just to get rid of it. Pretty lucrative overall… now we are trying up loose ends with moving, all that red tape like usual. 

My wife got a transfer teaching job, so I am basing my work search around that area. And Holy fuck, there are so many jobs right now! I got an offer this morning, then had a phone interview with another, then I got another damn call back during that interview! Ten years ago, even five years ago, I wouldn’t have believed it. I guess all those years of toiling at blue collar gigs actually amounted to something… the scrubs are in control now lol. I won’t just have to get any job, I can actually choose which one I want. Bizarre/Bizaar. 

So I’m going to do a blue collar gig for around 7 to 9 months, then I’ll start up my dispensary. Vermont is already legal medically and recreationally, but they won’t have legal rec shops able to open up until October 2022. So I’m saving money til then. Anyone in the southeastern VT or western upstate NY area wants to work in the cannabis industry at some point, I’d be glad to talk with ya. 

This has been one of the best years of our lives. Hoping all of yours are going that way as well.

So, after numerous set backs, delayed packages, packages getting lost, buying the wrong things, etc. I *finally* have everything I need and am starting to wire up my first arduino project. I’m taking it slow, because my work space is way too hot on a good day and soldering irons certainly don’t fucking help that. But, I’m getting it done.

 

gonna have to do a few modifications, and I’m trying to make everything removable; I bought a bunch of JST connectors and some breakaway pins, so I’m taking advantage of those. the battery I’m using already has a 2 pin female JST, so I wired the charging module/boost converter with 2 breakaway pins and did the same for the arduino itself- arduino has the female JST, breakaway pins in the output of the charging module.

 

I’ve gotta cut away and resolder the cable for the servo motor because it’s a little too long and just unwieldy. both the arduino and the bluetooth module I’m using have pins soldered into them so I’m going to frankenstein together a few female JST pins to plug both sides into those. although I could just solder them directly into the arduino pins. and then I gotta figure out what I want to do with the LED wiring. I might just throw some more JST female connectors onto the arduino and solder the ends of the LED wires to some more breakaway pins.

 

So, thats what I’m doing today. plus some podcast editing.

That is dope as fuck man. I wish they would make a Total War 40k. I’ve played the fuck outta both Warhammers but I’d like to dive into that particular world and its ripe for a Total War conversion.

It’s not total war at all, but there are the dawn of war games. I think they just recently announced dawn of war 3, too. Personally I’m not big on the 40k video games but hey that’s me.

I don’t know about that. I’m just not big on strategy video games. At least not most. Civ and age of mythology were dope but that’s about it.

Every time I install Civ V, I end up binging it for like 30 hours+. I couldn’t even tell you how many hours I’ve put into that game. Other than that, I’m not really into those 4X games.

Wonder what it is about Civ V.

Today we are heading out our long move to Vermont. The Colorado experiment was a 7 year (mostly) success, and it’s time to move on. Looking forward to living back in the northeast, for a plethora of reasons. Colorado was good, overall. Nothing much bad to say about it besides a few gripes. Far better place to live than eastern North Carolina, that’s for sure. 

After the carpet dude does his thing this afternoon, we are heading out. We are making a slow trip of it, trying to enjoy rather than rush. We are super fortunate to have jobs waiting for us, and the wife’s doesn’t start until the end of August. So still a bit of time to find good housing and enjoy the summer together for a change. 

Wish I could Gather, but the timing is juuuust off.

Yeah, totally. there’s just something magical about that game. I did buy crusader kings 3 awhile ago, and I can see that it’s fun, it’s well designed and everything works great. but it just doesn’t do it for me. it’s too complex for someone who’s not super invested in 4X games, I think.

damn, sounds like a big move. I’m hoping to get out of Oregon more permanently myself. or at least out of the portland area. I love this city, born and raised in stump town. But I’d like to see a bit more of the world, plus it’s just too expensive to keep living here for much longer. rents going up, wages aren’t.

Yeah my wife is going to be getting paid much more at her new school, and has much better perks and benefits. Also, on the nice days they teach most classes outdoors, since it is on a lake. I’m probably going to be working on that lake too, at a lodge. It’s between that one and UPS driver. UPS driver is much more money, but the work/life balance can be despairing. I’m planning on visiting both to see what they’re all about. 

It’s crazy how many job offers I got. It’s unlike anything I’ve ever experienced due to the labor shortage. It’s the scrub’s time to shine now, for us not-too-skilled-but-hard-workers. Drivers, cleaners, sales, etc. All those years of crappy hard jobs that didn’t pay much have surprisingly made my resume very appealing. So it wasn’t all for nothing. That is a peaceful truth.

Got a campground booked for tonight. I’ll keep yall ninjas updated.

So; I won’t have any videos of anything for awhile. but I’ve been working on a few new projects. I got some more code figured out. waiting for some new MP3 modules to come that actually work.

 

currently, I’m working on this bad boy; PXL_20210727_205446322.jpgImage Enlarger

I got all the coding done. I just need to wire all the electronics together and edit some MP3s for sound effects. it’s going to have sound effects for the main cannon and the sponson guns. and the main turret is going to rotate, full 360- have the code set up so that I can turn the turning on/off at the press of a button, either clockwise or anticlockwise.

 

then I’m going to work on a valkyrie. it’s one I had finished awhile ago but I couldn’t get my MP3 players working, I finally found ones that do, actually just work. So I’m pretty happy about that.

 

after that I’m working to work on a khorne lord of skulls. I know exactly what I want the model to do, just gotta get my hands a little more dirty with it and figure out some new code logic, plus figure out if I need a differently sized motor for the gattling gun of the thing or if the tiny ass ones I got are powerful enough to rotate it.

and then, in the background of all of this, I’m going to work on a maulerfiend project. no arduino in it. just back to simple LEDs and an on/off switch.

then, finally, after all of this is done I’m going to set up my camera and my photograph studio. record everything, and upload the videos to youtube to use as a portfolio.

 

i’ve got some other, less nerdy projects in the works too. I bought an 80% AR-15 lower years ago along with a jig, I had the lower carved out for some time but I’m finally putting in the money and effort to start buying the parts I need to finish it. Think I’m going to start with a pistol; it’s a “ghost gun” so there’s no way to track anything, it’s not registered anywhere, since I built it myself. But legally speaking if your AR-15 starts life as a rifle, it is always considered a rifle. but if it starts life as a pistol you can go back and forth as much as you like. so starting as a pistol seems like the safest, smartest bet to do, keep things legal.
