Busy, busy, BUSY day….

Sometimes, this is how I feel...
Sometimes, this is how I feel...

Today I —

Crunched and crunched and crunched both on the hardware design and linux kernel modifications needed at the early stages of designing the seeekret project I’m contracting on.   Brain was dialed to 11 for most of the day.

I picked up a ‘Flip’ camera from Woot.com to hack on.  They come with 2Gb of memory, and I’m going to see if I can use some Toshiba flash chips to get it up to a massive 8gb.  The firmware seems to support variable storage, and even better — there’s an SD card carrier that isn’t populated on the motherboard.  So, perhaps with some rework I might be able to solder one in.   The controller chip does seem to be present as part of the chip that runs the camera.

*grump*  I also went to the gym, and huffed and puffed for an hour after work.   I don’t like the gym, but it’s the only way I’m going to get back in shape and get both my heart and body healthy again.

Finally, I made plans to go to the movies tonight with a new friend…  and I think I made a complete, utter, total fool of myself doing so.   I really, really, really need to learn to let myself wind fully down from work before trying to be social.   As it was, I was nervous, and I know it both showed and make me feel foolish as all get go.    I enjoyed the movie thoroughly.   3D movies rock.

Sometimes I wonder if I ever will really be as socially smooth as my peers.   I’m good in groups, so/so when I’m one-on-one.  Go figure.

Well .. It’s late, but I think I’m going to hack on the Flip camera for a while.   Then try to figure out how the 3D glasses from the theater work.  Then sleep.
