    kickme444 RT Community

    If you didn't know, I work from home.  Specifically in Salt Lake City.  I have a little office in my basement and I'm all alone all day.  It's rather lonely.

    So, I went out yesterday and decided to find a coworker to really inspire me to build great stuff for the RT community.  He is all signed up on RT and is a first member already.

    Hope you're all having a relaxing summer!

    Saturday, September 30, is the finale of the Fan Service summer mini-season!!

    To celebrate, Reina will be joining us,because we love her more than we ever thought possible for six anime talk show hosts to love a person. 

    She has graciously offered to give us some much needed lesson in the Japanese language, so if you have any interesting word or phrase that you'd like an official translation for, send it in, and maybe it will be featured!

    We also have several BIG announcements as well as what may be one of the most interesting discussion topics ever on Fan Service. I don't put this lightly; "YOU WON'T WANT TO MISS THIS EPISODE"

    Don't forget to send in interesting questions for Community Service as well. Reina will be joining us so make them good!

    Today is Rosh Hashanah, the New Year according to the Jewish calendar. May this new year bring you and your family joy, happiness, and peace.


    It may be odd to think about a new year right now for most of us, as we are so engorged in the Gregorian calendar that the new year is still several months away. But a lot of the things we traditionally try to do at that time (change habits, make resolutions, make positive life changes, enjoy some nice champaign) are things can and should happen all the time.  So think of today as us Jews giving you a second chance at all of those New Years Resolutions you had for 2017.

    The number of cyclists in this town increases every new school year, but the percentage of responsible cyclists and irresponsible cyclists seems to stay the same (meaning both increase).

    I'm willing to wager that there are some schools out there still teaching bicycle safety. To all of those who do, thank you so much!

    Perhaps, there will be a critical mass where safe cycling will bleed over into most cyclists instead of a minority of them out of necessity. That would likely have far-reaching improvements to cycling amenities, causing a feedback loop of more people willing to ride with more amenities to support them, inspiring more cyclists, etc.

    I would love for conditions to improve enough to ride again.

    I meant to post yesterday but I had to go the the city to the doctor for some tests and it left me a little worn out...and don't even get me started on all the stuff I did today!

    Art project-wise I have been deciding on themes/topics for the pieces. I think at least one should be Halloween themed so I am debating between something with a skull or scary trees....Research is being done on-line and as usual I am downloading way too many "maybe I can use this" references.   

    I'm also thinking about some kind of animal one that might appeal to the men folk in my area. 

    Finally, as promised, here are the pours I did after coming back from the mountains. 





    Everybody in the path of a hurrican please stay safe!

  • Why?

    Why do I keep coming back?

    Only like 2 of my friends ever update journals. I never post. I barely read anything on here anymore. Been debating just deleting my profile, but I'm too much of a sentimental being for that. I may just take it off my bookmarks list so I stop clicking in and being sad. 

    Shoot me a message on Facebook, or Xbox Live, or hangouts, or whatever if the site ever gets better.

    I would say it's been a great 12 years, but it was a great 10 years for sure.

    DiMono It's Back Baby!

    My internet's back on, which means I can reasonably spend time on it again. It was just one part of a cavalcade of weirdness I've been drowning in for the last week. Here are the hits:

    You might remember in my last journal I mentioned some weirdness in my shoulder. Here's what happened. On Thursday, I woke up and everything was fine. Did a bit of light stretching, sat down to do some stuff at the computer, and things were great. When I decided it was time for breakfast, I opened the fridge and reached in for the bread, and suddenly my right shoulder was just a giant ball of pain. I can move around over 20lbs at a time with it, but apparently reaching for the bread was the tipping point. I iced it, saw my doctor, took some Motrin, and waited. After the pain went down I was able to localize it, and as close as I can tell it's a strain in the tendon where the upper pec inserts into the shoulder joint. I can contract the muscle comfortably, but when I stretch it too far it hurts. So I'm avoiding stretching it too far. I can do most of my daily things just fine at this point, but every once in a while it reminds me it's there. It's getting better, and I'm hoping it will be healed by the weekend.

    My internet died on Friday. So I brought my BluRay player into my office and hooked it up to my second monitor, and went through a bunch of movies and seasons 1 and 2 of The Collector when I wasn't writing. Last night I watched Airheads before bed. I didn't even know I had that movie. This morning I tried to finish up season 2 of The Collector, but for some reason my BluRay player isn't sending the video feed up the HDMI cable any more. It sends the turning-on screen, but everything after that is blackness. My RCA audio feed is fine, it's just the HDMI video that's messed up - but only mostly. So I had to watch the last episode on my laptop instead. I was considering keeping the BluRay player hooked up in here, but if it's not going to work properly then I can't do that. At least it waited until the morning I got my internet back before misbehaving.

    Having more time on my hands than usual, I finally got around to wiring up an improvement to my desk setup. I'd bought a 4-way USB splitter over a year ago, with the intention of attaching it to the side of my desk along with a USB extension cable, to give me more ports on my laptop. It's set up now, and seems to be working fine. However, when I plug my cell phone into it, it tells me it's charging, but the charge never goes up. And I can't use it to transfer files back and forth for some reason. It shows up as accessible in Windows Explorer, but I can't see anything in it. But I can use the debug features to aid in my web development work. So it works ...kind of.

    In weird but good news, I'm not entirely sure why, but in the last few days I've seen massive speed gains from my abs challenge. A few days ago my time was over 26 minutes. Sunday it was 25:45. Monday it was 25:07. Then yesterday it was 24:16. This follows after a gradual 20-30 seconds/day improvement pace I'd been seeing for a week - suddenly it just started getting much faster. My abs are also more sore now than they've been in the last 19 days, which makes sense. There are still 11 more sessions left, and I'm hoping all of this increased strength will translate to growth over that time. Then I'll give them a break and focus mainly on other things. I also added in some upper body work yesterday, to make it a proper workout rather than just abs. The muscles I added? Shoulders. Because they were the only upper body muscles I was confident I could work without aggravating my pulled tendon in my shoulder area. Go figure. I also did my lower back, because don't skip your lower back.

    Oh, and also it's unseasonably warm and humid in Toronto right now, and I've already put my air conditioners away. So my apartment has been 80ºF and 60+% humidity for the last week. It should go down again ...next Wednesday. In the meantime, it's only going to get hotter. I don't want to hook my air conditioners back up again for so short a time period, but I might have to. In the meantime, it's open windows and fans.

    So anyway, that's what I've been dealing with for the last week or so. I am so looking forward to the weekend. What have you guys been up to?

  • Fact of The Day:

    21 hours ago

    IronBridge Keeper of Knowledge

    Kiribati (an island nation in the central Pacific Ocean) didn't have a New Year's Eve in 1994.

    You see, this day was skipped entirely on the island in 1994, due to a change in time zones, from UTC−11:00 to UTC+13:00 and UTC−10:00 to UTC+14:00. 

    Previously Kiribati was divided by the International Date Line, with the western section of the islands being 24 hours ahead of its eastern neighbour, meaning that there were only four days in the week that official business could be conducted.

    To solve this problem, the date line was shunted east so all of the islands were in the same day. But to achieve this, the Line Islands and Phoenix Islands had to skip the last day in December all together.

    Thus there was no New Years Eve for them in 1994.

    I hate New Years Eve so this sounds like a dream to me.

    Okay the last couple days have been crazy amazing. My Godparents visited from San Antonio and we joined them on vacation for the day. They haven't seen me since I was one and for hanging out with a bunch of Old(er) people I had so much fun! We took them to Bisbee (Which if you ever get the chance is 9000 times better than Tombstone) and to the most amazing little dinner, It's tight next to the old Bisbee mine that goes down almost a mile into the earth and two miles wide.  After which we walked around all the old shops and stores, if you have never seen Old Bisbee the streets are all slanted and a really good exercise. I even got to have a beer at my dad's old Hangout "St Elmo's Bar" and when were in there we ran into a group of people filming a movie and even got the opportunity to be background extras. 

    It was an awesome day other than being ripped off by a knife dealer that is, all though I'll admit I should have known the markup would be high in a tourist town. Anyways when we got back to the house my package had arrived from Rooster Teeth! It was my first RT merch purchase I made and I am not disappointed. I got an RT V-neck, a House Achievement hunter shirt, an Achievement Hunter flag, and an Achievement Hunter Silipint. The only thing I wanted but couldn't get was a H&H shirt because they were sold out of large shirts.  The shirts are so damn comfy and the Flag looks amazing over my desk. 

    Oh and also the large shirt thing is a big deal for me considering they are the first large size shirts I've bought in five years. I've lost close to about twenty pounds since August I'm  doing a fast type diet where I skip eating two days a week. Since I've started my headaches have died down and I've been feeling more energetic.

    And last but certainly not least I'm saving for a new computer. I was going to get an Xbox One X but considering they are sold out already I'm going to use the money I'm making right now to start buying parts. It shouldn't take long though considering I just won two hundred dollars on a Scratchers' ticket the other day. I guess everything is working out as of lately and with any Luck my luck will continue. Well I really miss talking to you guys so I want to post more often (If anyone does read these/) Well stay awesome everyone and I hope you all have an awesome day tomorrow.   caboose caboose caboose

    Upon this morn I awoke to find that I have been placed in the panels team for RTX London!  matt Ah, home sweet home! So what other time to write a new blog post but now?

    Summer went by with a mix of a sound of a bang and a sound of a sad horn. It started off amazing with RTX and then kind of got meh with a sprinkling of extra happy moments. I went to all of the BBC Proms performances that I had booked, including the Last Night of the Proms, and they were all amazing. I know that I'm not going to be able to afford something like that again for a good while so I made sure I absorbed it all and I greatly appreciate it. I moved house which was alright. It wasn't majorly stressful, but it was just a pain! But I'm in a much nicer house now. 

    And now I'm just getting back into the swing of things. I'm working full time at my job that I've had for the past 2 and a half years, just until I get on my feet again, all the while looking to see what I actually want to do. I've also started going to the gym  ren Shock horror! And to try and encourage myself and keep me on track, I've decided to create a lifestyle-y blog which you should totally check out  barbara ( https://charproc.blogspot.co.uk/ )

    Coming up next in October: Disneyland Paris, RTX London and Michael Giacchino live. October's gonna be hella fun but also hella expensive! See you there.
