It was a fun streak while it lasted. Back to irregularly scheduled posts.
Guess I have a few days I need to catch ya’ll up on.
Friday, we finished with 3D modeling in Maya. I really wasn’t feeling that program so I was pretty happy about that. It felt really unintuitive and I think I just prefer the preciseness you get with Solidworks or AutoCAD. That’s probably the engineer in me. That weird green one is Maya, I’m much prouder of the one to the bottom from solidworks. I had to do a lot of work to set constraints and mates to make it look and move naturally. That doesn’t really show in picture well, but take my word for it its pretty cool.
This weekend I did some of the tasks I’ve been putting off But there are still so many more.
We’ve been struggling in our project getting a program to work for our video feed. I’ve tried downloading probably 8 thing on my computer that all have different tasks of building, compiling, etc. And my laptop’s starting to feel the strain. It was already slow, but now its basically crawling begging for relief.
We’ve got so much to figure out, and this is suppose to be the easy part because were really just using code that’s already out there on the internet. But this setup is proving quite difficult. I might have to leave it to the more capable members of my group who have more capable laptops. Here’s a video of the drone running though from a laptop which was pretty cool to do.
I also bought that TV I was talking about. Its already so much better than that projector I had and its literally half the price of that other hunk of junk. Only thing no is the wifi doesn’t seem fast enough for the games I’m trying to run so I have to get the ethernet set up in my room. There’s suppose to be a way to do it online, but i couldn’t find the form so I guess I’ll email someone about it after I put this post up.
I bought canned vegetables and fruit and boxed mash potatoes so I finally had a decent meal for the first time in weeks I could hear my body thanking me. It takes a little more time to make but not too bad so I’m gonna start some good habits. That reminds me I’m gonna go to the gym today, try to get a schedule of at least a few times a week not like I have much else to do after work.
And to close here’s another one of those comics that I love. Got a real gutbuster for today.
