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.Â Â Brain was dialed to 11 for most of the day.
I picked up a ‘Flip’ camera from Woot.com to hack on.Â 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.Â The firmware seems to support variable storage, and even better — there’s an SD card carrier that isn’t populated on the motherboard.Â So, perhaps with some rework I might be able to solder one in.Â Â The controller chip does seem to be present as part of the chip that runs the camera.
*grump*Â I also went to the gym, and huffed and puffed for an hour after work.Â Â 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…Â and I think I made a complete, utter, total fool of myself doing so.Â Â I really, really, really need to learn to let myself wind fully down from work before trying to be social.Â Â As it was, I was nervous, and I know it both showed and make me feel foolish as all get go.Â Â Â I enjoyed the movie thoroughly.Â Â 3D movies rock.
Sometimes I wonder if I ever will really be as socially smooth as my peers.Â Â I’m good in groups, so/so when I’m one-on-one.Â Go figure.
Well .. It’s late, but I think I’m going to hack on the Flip camera for a while.Â Â Then try to figure out how the 3D glasses from the theater work.Â Then sleep.
