It’s six months now and my hair is still multicolored, with the dominant color being blue, but with green and purple showing.
I first noticed her with one of her “Doodling in Math Class” videos (I think this one: Connecting Dots), but then, since I’ve been into Flexagons since my 7th grade math teacher taught us about them back in 1972 (thank you Mr. Woodworth!) I started following her with her flexagon series with the first one, Hexaflexagons.
This one is particularly thought provoking: Pi Is Still Wrong.
Just thought I should share.
My Kindle PaperWhite arrived today. I wasn’t expecting it until Wednesday. So far, it’s nice, but it’ll take a bit adjusting to a touch screen interface. I’m not sure it’s a good idea to get rid of buttons. I’m curious how the lighting will work in a dark room.
My friend Gwyneth has a good article about female musicians in history, with some nice photos of women musicians from the Ren Fest.
Sandra, a friend of mine, has a nice post about autumn on her blog: http://barefootgrdnr.blogspot.com/
As you can see by my profile picture, I decided to color my entire head blue, with some purple and green here and there. It’s been a month, and I’m really enjoying it. It is fading somewhat, but still very bright. There is a certain amount of regrowth, and I’ll be bleaching my roots and recoloring it this weekend. More of the same, I think.
H&H Color Lab offered me a position in December, so I’ve been an employee rather than a contractor since then. I’ve been awfully busy working on their desktop apps.
But we did get a Sea Glass Look and Feel release out in our copious free time. We are now at version 0.2.
Since I can’t seem to get much control over other parts of my life, I’ve been coloring blue streaks in my hair. I’m thinking of doing a lot more of that anon.
Since June, I’ve been working at H&H Color Lab, which processes color photos from professional photographers and produces high-end products such as wedding albums, greeting/anniversary/graduation cards, canvas gallery wraps (made by dye sublimation of an image onto canvas and wrapped around a wood frame), and much more. They also can handle normal photo prints.
I’m a contractor, which means I don’t know how long they’ll keep renewing my contract, but that’s really the case for most work these days.
I’m doing desktop applications programming using Java Swing, which is a lot of fun, and I already had experience doing that kind of work. H&H makes several applications that can be downloaded and used to compose, say, an album, a greeting card, or a metal water bottle and then packages up the order and submits it over the internet for processing.
So we have stuff that allows you to drag and drop photos, crop them, organize them, etc. Think of it sort of as Adobe InDesign lite with the ability to order prints.
One thing I’ll say about this company is that they keep you busy. I haven’t had any time to work on outside projects since I started.
But I’ve been busy with work.
The wind is no longer at Voyager’s back. It’s in the heliosheath.
This means that in a few years Voyager will have left the solar system and be in the interstellar medium. Amazing.
Imagine! It was launched before personal computers were everywhere, before cell phones, before the internet! But it was given a powerful boost by its rocket, and another by the two largest planets in the solar system as it swung by them. And now, in just a few more years, it will have left our nest forever.
