Update to the camera

The wire came off before I could get anything connected, and the pad came off with it, so I gave up. Bought a Nest Video door bell instead. I like it a lot more.

Vaxxed and waxed, and ready for the beach.

I volunteered at a vaccine drive to push people around in wheel chairs. It was cool. Most people were nice. The person on oxygen that reeked of cigarettes. The one so large that there was no chance I could stop in time if a small child ran in front of us. I saw a person have a reaction and get taken away. Later on I spoke with one of the medics and he said he’s been giving them out since the beginning, and he’s only had a few reactions to the shot. This person, like most was just having an anxiety attack. Not surprising. It’s been stressful for everyone.

$30 camera project

Got this cheap-ass camera on Amazon. It does 360 rotate, and like 120 tilt. The software sucks ass. It’s got the same chip as much nicer systems. Ingenic T20 is the chip. I’m going to attempt to load custom firmware to take it off the cloud, and I’ll run stuff internally.

Pandemic OVER – Back to SHOOTINGS

I haven’t felt much end in sight, or that we would ever go back to normal in this country, but I’ve been proven wrong in the most dastardly way.

Tuesday March 16 2021 – Eight people killed at three different Asian Massage parlor in Atlanta, GA.

Monday March 22 2021 – Ten people were killed at a Colorado supermarket by a US citizen. No motive has been reported yet, but they have report that he was born in Syria, so I guess the GOP can call this one terrorism? Of course the white man that murdered 8 Asian people will be called “troubled” and “mentally ill” for his terrorism.

Time is passing so fast.

Another week! Lol

That was a joke about the frequency of my weekly posts. I will probably make it again.

Don’t really have much going on to talk about. Having really been saving any memes or anything. Work seems fine. I can’t tell if I’m really doing more harm than good on the team, but, have I ever really at any other place. Just got to believe the boss when he says keep up the good work.

Project might get delayed because of some audit or something, but that’s not my problem. And sounds like PIC knew it was going to happen, so they planned. Nice to work for a place I don’t find completely incompetent.

I think we may be at the beginning of Elysium

I was listening to a report on NPR New Hour about how the poor are dealing with the pandemic, and it got me thinking. There is a whole section of the population that can’t work from home, and are in businesses that have been closed for an entire year. There is a second class of people and there is no way for them to ever get out of the hole. This sort of indifference is how we get on the Elysium path. This made a fuckton more sense when I thought about it, and was a lot more hashed out in my head… But, by the time I got here to post it, gone. Like a wonderful dream that you can only enjoy for the fleeting moments you can still remember it.
