"Work-in-Progress: Polytechnic Perceptions of the Engineering Classroom Experience" - :doi:

Discovered by trying to send a message to my spouse. Luckily my bridged Matrix server was still accessible so I could still send a Signal message through that.

Discovered that my kid's school blocks access to Signal, Threema, Wire, FB Messenger, Telegram, etc. Interesting.

That's not a stool. Leonardo da Vinci had interests that spanned sports, engineering, anatomy and art. Just to go into specifics... What does that all have in common?


Body Mechanics>Sports>Anatomy>Engineering>Drafting>Art

They're interconnected only in the fact that they revolved around one another with a core interest. The productivity sytem, the skills? That's just the bolts holding it all together.

Netflix show, The Chair 

I finally got around to watching The Chair. Are there actually universities with classrooms and offices that look like that? I've never seen wood work like that in an office let alone a classroom.

In my experience it is always cinder block buildings and crappy IKEA style furniture.

Reading summary for 2021 

I managed 63 books completed in 2021. It's been a good year for reading!

This was followed some journal rejections/revisions to get it to the point of finally being published. /fin

My advisor brought on an undergrad research student to setup some experiments with the valve and get some data. I really didn't have the time to put in any effort to this kind of testing.

I posted it as a preprint,

Submitted to a journal and the reviews said it needed some experimental validation. Which is a fair criticism.

There it stagnated for a while because I wasn't really too motivated to publish anything from my thesis. However, I finally gave in to my advisor's request to publish in about 2017 and wrote up the paper.
