Okay, journal stuffs....

Life! Life is. My last summary update. Not much has changed? Rah rah rah! But...day to day?

My office has the indefinite loan of a Makerbot replicator, and I've been learning its idiosyncrasies. I've printed out three different iPad stands from thingiverse, and one iPad "sound deflector". I'm doing iPad work at work, so it's reasonable. ;)

I'd like to try some art (I have in my head a rabbit launching itself out of a stone block that I did up in blender many years back); or maybe something more practical (pieces for my next entry in the somewhat-forgotten "annual" second-Christmas sumo-bot competition).

Rejections...always rejections, with writing; though I've been having a lot of success with my poetry at Every Day Poets the last few years (at $1 a pop, but hey). That's the world of semi-pro. Need to go back and admit defeat on a number of stories, probably trunk another 20 (or so). Really need to go back and finish and/or polish a number of them.

:D Built, but didn't design, so I feel a little bit like a talented 1st-grader mashing buttons. Admittedly there's some complexity in the buttons, but.... ;) :)

The President of the company I work at got one to tinker with, and left it at the office for us to play with as well. So...no real reason, but: "Toy!"
