GROWTH

I didn't know that I was being hurt
Until the next day came.
The lack of explanation holding confusion from forming
into teardrops.

Knowing the riddles should turn The Great Gates of Knowledge
into sliding doors with sensors.

Humans are sad creatures.
Sad and lonely.
Sad and lonely.

No frown
While the sword keep swinging
Sharp by Sharp
Polishing the hearing.

And Now the Music and Magic….

I have not been able to find out if Christina Burduja actually wrote the words to “Growth” shown above. I’d like to know.

Nice combination. Here’s more from Mindfoxx:

It’s not often I get a chance to random surf. But I took a little break to do just that. Here’s what I found:

Flash, Not Flash Gordon…okay maybe him too

Flash animation was great at the beginning, but it was always difficult to share and embed elsewhere. When social media came along, there were people making movies with Flash [NO! not Flash Gordon!] and you were getting that blank box with the text message “This content requires the Flash animation plugin….download it here”

NEXT!

Now the Internet Archives has figured out a way to save them. I made Flash animations and couldn’t even save them the first time!


Fake Booze

Found this slightly amusing.

Don’t drink alone, unless you are George Thorogood

Haven’t tried it yet but found on a Web Dev geek site.

Expressive Pixels Open Source App from Microsoft

Example of pixels swirl

https://www.microsoft.com/en-gb/p/expressive-pixels/ The app gives the ability for people share animated visualizations in their own unique way. Users can make and show both static and animated images on LED displays and other digital devices, such as a PC. You can export the JSON code for use in other programs.


That’s it. I just had enough free time to paste this blog post together ya!

Something about “today there’s a chinook and you better get out and take advantage of the warm weather by decorating a big tree” How do you get those balls on the tree when you only have a small ladder? My solution is to use copper wire to make the hook, and a long stick. The copper wire is just flexible enough to hold and grab the branch while not deforming. Number 16 gauge perfect but the most common is household wire being solid 14 gauge copper wire

Don’t have any copper wire laying about? Join the recycle economy: Just ask your local electrician for some “wire trimmings”, or a street scrapper. You’ll find street-level scrappers dumpster diving in any town or city.  These people make a living by taking what others throw away and turning it into Cash. As of today bare bright copper stands at $2.70 a pound at the scrap yard but very few yards sell what they collect from street level scrappers. Don’t ask me why I don’t know.

Hopefully that wind doesn’t blow all the decorations off before Christmas.
