More-igami, MOAR!

Jul - 08 2017

Couple of days ago I started to play with a Closed Sink fold in a Waterbomb Base. Things got interesting. As usual, I explored, tweaked, twisted, and inside-outed every possible angle. Sure enough, I found my own way around the thing. Ended up with cube holders all over the place. Then I took a look […]

Farting Out The Lights

Jun - 28 2017

http://rationalwiki.org/wiki/Apophenia “Apophenia is the experience of seeing meaningful patterns or connections in random or meaningless data. The term was coined by neurologist Klaus Conrad and defined as the ‘unmotivated seeing of connections.’” One evening, a good many years ago, I was exercising — just a sort of free-form dance — in the living room, with […]

Google Voice UIFAIL

Jun - 10 2017

I’ve been using Google Voice for years. I use it for business calls because I can’t afford extra features on my land line (or get a cell phone). It has worked well for me. Voicemail and messages have allowed me to return missed calls when people call me about computer problems. It’s been great. And […]

Your Great New Business Opportunity

May - 02 2017

Around ten years ago, a friend got involved in multi-level marketing (MLM) — in other words, a pyramid scheme. I could see straight through the hype, but he was a beLIEver. My attempts to open his eyes were futile. In 2013, the FTC kicked the scam off the map — and its founder, a narcissistic […]

Masu Module Drawers

Apr - 25 2017

I love small things. Looking at origami furniture models, I thought how fun it would be to assemble a paper suite for Borrowers. But out of all the chest-of-drawers type models available, I found none that I really wanted to fold. Either they were fussily complex, or not proportioned right. So I took paper in […]

Full Metal Petal

Sep - 10 2016

Origami Lotus Flower with slight modification A bit of background first. Twenty-odd years ago I was heavily into origami. Because my health was poor (as a result of poverty) and my low-paying job was exhausting, I needed something to do while mostly doing nothing. Origami was my key to couch occupation. Since then I’ve forgotten […]

Happeh Geekness

Jun - 08 2016

Not getting too much done on this site, but I set up another for a friend last weekend. Used WordPress, with a theme called Universal. It’s a beautifully tweakable theme that is friendly to all devices. I tested it on a phone just to see how it went. He’s pegging away at adding content now. […]

CENSORED

Jul - 23 2015

I followed this link from Twitter, enjoyed it immensely, retweeted it, and tried to post it on Facefuck. I was prevented from doing so. FINE! I will share it even more. If you think it is offensive, don’t share it. 3 Dads I’ve encountered Facecrap’s nannying before, and I will never condone it. Why stop […]

Wow I’m So Cool

May - 17 2015

Yep, changed my site password and forgot to tell WordPress.

Star Dreamer

Jun - 18 2014

A song that I passed some time with ca. 1991 Star dancer, far dreamer, my ship on the sea Nightmist and starwind bring visions to me Flowers are opening under the sky Come with me, dream with me, just you and I Breathe deeply the sweet air of earlier times Rest in the soft darkness […]
