Kaijucast also, next ep. soon!

One of the podcasts I follow is Kaijucast. It's a fun show about Godzilla and all his rubber-suited foes. I wrote a quick blub for their lastest Daikaiju Discussion -- Space Amoeba. You can hear it around the 38 minute mark. Kyle was kind enough to mention Filmmonger! Thanks!!!  

You can catch the full Kaijucast episode at:

Getting back into Amateur Radio

One of my first hobbies -- even before programming and computers -- was Amateur Radio. It was so early in my life that I do not recall how I discovered it. I do remember that I did so independantly. I wasn't introduced to the hobby by an "Elmer", and only was able to read about it in books.

Patterns and Seam Lines

I've begun to notice a pattern with business trips lately. As the trip approaches, I get increasingly worried about if the clothes I have to fit the venue fit me. This can be in the least, a subconscious stressor, and in the worst, outright panic. Each time I manage to get through the business trip, but it often takes a toll.

This weekend went too quickly. Pazi and I waited at home for a new piece of furniture to arrive most of the day, but accepted it wouldn't arrive. We burned the day moving books and disposing of a large bookshelf. Late that afternoon we met up with friends for some food and gaming. After a few rounds, we settled in to watching a movie. The evening ended too early, no thanks to my perpetual fatigue.

Life and Blade Runner

Work has been more than exhausting as of late. The project I'm currently working on is such a huge priority for the company that we've bypassed many of the expected procedures and timetables in order to complete it. The result, for me at least, has been writing two classes cocurrently in a third of the time usuall given to create one. I've been putting in extra hours many days of the week, and donated most of my weekend to making some modicum of progress.

Things I learned about Drupal - Apr 28, 2011

First, let me yammer

Lately I've been writing some patch code for the Drupal 7 version of Organic Groups and Organic Groups Create Permissions. Both modules are cornerstones on which I plan to build deninet 7. This isn't the first time I've written Drupal code, but it is the first time I've done so for a patch to contrib modules.

StarReader Universe Symbol

Yesterday I was talking to a friend about commissioning a new necklace using the StarReader Universe symbol. When she asked which one that was, I set out to the 'net to find a reference image.

To my surprise, I couldn't find one. Since I was at a restaurant, I didn't have access to my files in order to show her. At last night, I was too exhausted from traveling from Boston to Minneapolis to find the image.
