Almost pMachined

blog comments edit

I’ve almost got my implementation of pMachine ready to go. I worked a bit on the templates and such and think I’ve just about got it set for prime time. I just need to figure out how to import my Greymatter entries in there and I’ll be set. After that, it’ll be a matter of importing things in, then messing around getting the uploaded images and whatnot to show up correctly.

This weekend was supposed to be relaxing, but I’m feeling pretty wiped out right now. Saturday we did our usual chores, but Sunday we actively did nothing. Jenn got kind of bored and ended up going grocery shopping, but I got a chance to watch a couple of the DVDs I’ve recently purchased and catch up on my Playstation time.

At the time, I thought it was kind of nice and rather interesting to be bored - I’m usually going so much or have so much on my mind that I don’t just get to sit down and relax. Looking back on it now, I realize that having nothing to do stresses me out. I can’t just sit and relax because I always have this nagging feeling that there’s something that has to be done.

To that effect, I woke up this morning totally wiped out, and I’m still dragging. I find that it takes me the two days of the weekend to get ready to unwind, then by the time the weekend is over, I’m finally getting decent sleep and would love to take the time to actually, truly unwind but it’s already time for work again. It’s a losing proposition.

I really need to replace the battery in my camera. Wouldn’t you know it, but as soon as the battery runs out on the damn thing, I end up finding buttloads of candidates for Traffic Asshole of the Week.

Speaking of cameras, I tried out this other camera that we have, the SiPix StyleCam Blink. It’s this tiny camera, similar to the camera that I use to take the Traffic Asshole pictures, the Che-ez Splash. I like the quality (if you can call it that) of the Che-ez camera better than the SiPix - the SiPix is really grainy while the Che-ez is smooth. I guess we’re talking the least of two evils, but for those in the market for an affordable, portable digital camera, I’d go with the Splash.

I got my new modem today, so I think I’ll go home and try installing that bad boy into my new computer. I still need to put the SCSI controller in, too, so I’ll do it all at the same time.
