1. Imagine I have written something very clever. Now imagine it is so profound that it changes your perception on software, robotics and life. 2. To say I have an addiction to writing software would be an understatement. Software, robotics, backpacking. 3. My life, my way. Welcome to ... my world.

10th training run, 3 min intervals

Apr 29, 2015

This run was hard. I ate too much before the run, and ended up having to slow to a walk a couple times. Was a little too warm with black LL Bean long sleeve and green shirt. Pauline felt pretty good. Wore thin long sleeve shirt. Temp in the 50s. 3 min run, 1 min walk, 6 reps. 

Flexing my artistic skills

Drew this when I wanted a custom profile image for my account at Only took about 4 tries to get it right. I'll have to try to convert it to vector art. Right now it's just pencil.

Just wrote my first cshell script

I rather liked it. I have been collecting satelite images for the last couple years, and resulted in over 200,000 files. All of those were being dumped into one directory. With so many in one direcotry, you can't even get a directory listing using ls. To see files I had to use find. It was definitely time to organize the files.

Tog vs Dino

Available in the Apple App Store.

In this retro blast from the past, relive the action of 80's style hand held games!

A caveman has to eat right? Besides, that big 'ol dinosaur isn't going to miss one or two eggs will she?

Play Tog, the daring Neanderthal as he dodges lava rocks and avoids getting his eggs stolen by pterodactyls flying overhead.

Get close, but not too close, and use Tog's trusty hatchet to knock Dino into dream land and bring her eggs back to Tog's cave. Dispatch a similar fate to the pterodactyls before they steal Tog's hard earned eggs, while he is away from his cave.
