My other lives have been very busy the last week, thus the slowdown in production here. And now I must go out of town for a few days. So there probably won’t be a lot going on here. But the reason I’m going away is to test the high tech device I’ve been working on with my brilliant young Russian partner for the last year. Our in-lab tests are working perfectly. But we have yet to have a perfect test of it in the field. If it works, I’m going to be thrilled because this is such a cool thing. If we have problems, well, then we will have to figure out what’s going wrong. We currently think the problem may be the source we are using for the internet part of the device. Because frankly, the hardware is really stable and my code is solid as hell.
So if you don’t hear from me much this weekend, it will be because I am out in the California valley, where it will be in the 90s. It’s going to be dreadful. But if the tests go well, I’m going to feel really good about myself. And you can count your blessings that you don’t have to live with me.
I’m going to try to write both the birthday posts tonight, but I’m already tired. So don’t be surprised if I get it out late tomorrow. I may have to write it on my phone in transit. Ugh!
