Hey cool, my recent journal paper is being featured on the front page of the journal.

While not officially official, my Chancellor is recommending me for promotion to Full Professor!

Speaking of photos, how do people pass photos down to their kids these days? I can't imagine handing down a hard drive or saying, "Don't forget to keep paying for this server!" in my will.

Migrating my Google Photos to a self-hosted option. 10,000 files done; 40,000 to go.

It's not the prettiest home network setup but it's functional.

"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.

Show thread

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!
