2015-02-14 Sa (F) Weekly Summary

This last week I went to Texas again. For work. I decided to see San Antonio on the advice of a friend and it was a really cool city. The Riverwalk was gorgeous. On the way there from Houston I stopped at a state park and saw a sign that made me less than happy to be on the trails. My San Antonia advising friend assured me that snakes are dormant this time of the year. She was correct or snakes don't like people who smell like fear.

Not a fan

The board for the Color/Touch + Sound was shaped and routed. This can be prototyped at my apartment if I ever spend more than a single night there. The shape will not translate to a home printed board, I will have to do that myself but it will be relevant when professionally printed. For the routing I took the easy way and let the computer do all the work. Rather than spending the time for a nice looking board I opted for the time-saving option of a board with lines entirely generated by the computer.

A good project while traveling is for me to write Charged: DesertIrish. Text documents don't take any extra room in my bag and I use a computer for my job so I always have one. The story continued with Dawson and Heather in Minnesota and their interactions with Dawson's father, Bud. The two of them are fun to write and I hope other people enjoy reading them. I suspect some of their interaction will come out in the editing process.

This week I restarted the ESPeri.Impass.This project gets a lot of downtime because I get stumped or frustrated. While this is a frustrating project I know it can be done. Perhaps I will have to make concessions about the purely mechanical aspect. The 3D printer, which I intended for rapid prototyping, should be a valuable tool for creating parts for this project. So far it has been great and encouraging for moving this along.
