I been working today. We're moving offices.
I'm hurting all over.
Oh no, this is something completely different. Yesterday, some water pipe broke and got fixed but apparently they forgot to turn the water back on, so it was off for the whole area. No water at all. They turned it on in the morning but then it still took several hours to come back. I have water now though. :)

Move all done?
Unfortunately not yet.
I still have some minor things to do for the network. I had to recycle old CAT6 cables (that came from cellphone detectors in prisons). So I hope they work.

Well long time no squeak... I've had a pretty hectic couple of years....

Thought I would drop by and see what's happening here.

At this very moment I am teaching MiceElf Blender so I can design fursuit heads, masks and avatars for places like VR Chat.
I don't have VR or even a decent computer at the moment.... and am doing all my work on an Atom PC.... so whatever I learn in Blender will be limited by that until my fortunes change.

I have recently managed to make a plaster cast of my head - to make mask and fursuit head design much easier... It came out pretty good, if I do say so MiceElf.

I have recreated the Plaster Head in Blender digitally.... so now I can sculpt around it to make my masks and fursuit heads, and be able to gauge dimensions accurately.

Then I can use my digital sculpts as reference while I build the fursuit head on the Plaster Cast IRL.

Not too much has been happening, everyone's been stuck inside. But if there's anything interesting, you're encouraged to make a thread! There's a section for fursuit related stuff if you want to share pics of the building process.

I went for training for operating our new super old pick and place machine today.
Information overload. But really it's not that hard. Just nerve-wracking knowing if I screw up...

Of course, I'd said I would. You're welcome.

A machine that picks up electronic components and places them on the board to be soldered.

I was going to get more airtime for my modem so I can make sure I don't run out of internet but apparently there are technical issues preventing that... >.> Hopefully it will work tomorrow. I do still have 7 gigs left though so not deadly urgent but still...

Closed my Paypal accounts this evening after donating the last of my funds there to the EFF. (The Electronic Frontier Foundation, not the South African group that is somehow considered a political party.) Ideally I'd like to replace Paypal with Cryptocurrency but they have too many downsides at the moment. :/

Partly inspired by Elysium's survey, I've been doing some data analysis for fun. Got a lot of survey results from an old [adjective][species] survey to play with. In between that I've been playing a bunch of Sudoku.

I've been helping to put together an online convention for the last few months, and now we're just a few weeks away from it happening!
If anyone is interested in catching it, we'll be streaming the con live on YouTube on October 24th-25th. You can check out our website for more info at https://owomacon.com/

Sorry for the plug, but it's been eating a lot of my time lately and I'm excited to see it getting closer. X3 Huge shoutout to the FURSAverance crew for their help and inspiration.

Aside from con planning, I've mostly been working a new security job and trying to get through a bit of my backlog of seemingly everything ever, lol.

Oh, you're a conrunner now? Quite a number of those here for such a small site!

I'm waiting for my cooking timer to go off. I made food, had the timer go off and then had some to eat. Thought the potatoes were unusually hard and not well cooked. About 15 minutes later another timer went off. Turns out the first timer was something completely different which accidentally repeated from the previous week. Now I'm making sure the rest of the food is properly cooked before I store it. >.>

Welp, the con is pretty much over, aside from a bit of an encore this coming Saturday. Overall it seems to have gone pretty well. ^.^
We managed to raise a good amount for charity, and I'm looking forward to seeing what the future may hold.
As for what I'm up to, mostly wrapping up con stuff, and some D&D prep.
