Saturday - Still dry.
I did a bunch of shopping in the morning - it's been a couple of weeks and I
was out of everything...
The new cat is enjoying the butcher paper I put down for him:
Friday - Working away on
NOPE and STARS. My hands hurt...

stuff. I tried to enable Dropbox, the file transfer thing, on
the new HP laptop, but it got really screwy really fact. I guess it
got confused between the old 5GB storage I had, and the new 25GB that I was
supposed to get for free with Windows 10. Eventually I got it to sync,
and it looks like I just have the 5GB. Whatever.
I was having trouble with the buffers and VIM on Win10, and eventually
remembered that I'd installed CREAM, which works much better. At least
once I'd figured out how to get into command mode, <cntl-L>, and out
I scratched around a bit, working on an early Aeroelastic model for
him. I made sure to tell him last week that this is just my opinions
on things, not Engineering Services or whatever. He needs to check my
fifteen and twenty year old recollections of how things are done against
Anyway, now I have a working GUI version. Steve G. is going to try it
Tuesday - Not much to say. Working on
the app, trying to get the switch thing to work properly. The Apple
provided stuff for switch indexing doesn't seem to be working right - little
vs big integer / unsigned integer issues. It might be me, but I
followed the instructions and am getting index of 992,687,321,095
- for an array with a grand total of eleven (11) elements!
Talked with S a bit, she wants to be able to exchange stuff on the screen,
with switches. Kind of different from what I was assuming, so I'll
have to do some rethinking about that.
Monday - Tired.
Spent nearly the entire day doing more paperwork for Covered California. And
other stuff. How can a half retired guy be so busy?
Not much else going
Sunday - OTR. Working around the house,
basically packing items in A's main office, and helping take boxes to
storage. Over the weekend we moved 125 boxes into storage - there's probably
room for as many more, but we were out of time.
We also moved the good TV and a bunch of household items to A's new
place. I set up the TV, with help from the local TW guy on the phone,
and got everything going.
We headed north about 4, just after the Super Bowl started.
It started out as a blowout apparently, then the Patriots came back and
cleaned Atlanta's clock. I didn't really care, I never followed either
team ever, and haven't watched a football game this year.
I got home to Lancaster and dropped off G and P at their parents at a
reasonable hour, 7-ish, rather than the 2am of last time.
I guess the Trump election election protests are still going strong.
And now there's a California secession movement. Great. Sore loser's,
the lot of them.
