DId I mention that facebook sucks. When doing any credit card transactions on facebook it automatically saves your information. It doesn't let you opt out.

I needed to edit a video which I haven't done in a while and I got to use new the new 20.08.0 version

Now kdenlive has vectroscope, under color mode. I also like the ideas of having different editing modes and optimizing UI for that).
Kdenlive no longer crashes when I use Experimental GPU processing, I think I no longer need to generate proxies.

Since I've been using power adapter with my camera, I needed a few more battery clips.

I printed several more copies of a battery clip for DMV-BFL19PP for my Panasonic GH4 using 0.5mm nozzle with 0.5mm layer height.

The design is from here -- thingiverse.com/thing:2575324/

There's a video about it by the person who designed the clip -- youtube.com/watch?v=amd7pFq7G7

It fits really well.

Ok I'm getting somewhere with this prusa face shield. I made it out of abs with 0.4 mm layer height.

I'm keeping this for myself as I touched it and breathed all over it while figuring out if the print quality is ok., All the subsequentbatches are coming to Community Make and all the hospitals they're in contact with.

The thing the engine is mounted on, is called nacelle.

There are other planes with engines at the back, like MD-80.

The only other airplane with FOUR engines in the back is Vickers VC10, but it barely had any commercial service.

The article on one of the crashes has the most USSR ever uttered.

- *Pilot puts some load on the engine*
- *Plane crashes*

Is it me or the way engines mounted on il-62 is totally weird?

I ended up fixing formatting on the fronted with SASS.

Here's a bit of sass I used. Docutils generate css class 'footnote' on which I can anchor elements.

border: none

I had no work units in the morning, and that was a good thing because I had a chance to disable CPU unit. GPU on its own makes more points than GPU & CPU (~84K vs 66K).

Now finally got one but need computer to work. It will have to run this in the evening.

The first ever video conferencing with jitsi is considered a success. No significant lag or connection weirdness.

Graphs below show resource utilization during 5-person conference on the cheapest hetzner machine (cx11) as a host.

Disaster capitalism. 

The sad thing that the mask is not even effective.

Google is apparently ok with this since there is no way to report the ad.

I love but the UI is not consistent with anything I know, and kind of cryptic.

There seem to be no help available within the app, F1 gives photo a 1-star rating, pressing question mark redirects to a website with no obvious help section and mashing random buttons doesn't help either.

EZCAP28X HDMI capture with mic-in connection

Connected to RODE vodemicro on a hotshoe adapter to 1/4-20 screw tripod.

This contraption works -- capture device provides enough voltage for the microphone. I can use it as audience microphone/b-cam.

Two problems:

* capture device max out at 50Hz refresh rate and the screen really likes 60Hz. But for capturing desktop I don't really see a difference.

* I hear some clicks on the video, not sure where are they coming from

TIL there is an gray color that is AAA accessible and easy to remember #575757

I found it on this website... that given background color, generates accessible gray combination.

I'm getting very old-school unix vibe from it.


I'm still working on organizing everything I'm doing. Organizing everything using Agile seem silly, but that's what is happening.

I created priority and importance labels. Next stop -- how many points I can complete in a week, and having performance review meetings with myself. LOL.

After all the weird weather and rain we've been having lately, park ravine is flooded.
