Let me just say that there is a huge difference between a six-pack of 6% IPA and one of 9%. OMG it’ 11AM and I’m still on the couch. I have been productive.
I sent the actual email to my advisor/mentor for review. I don’t want to come across as a crass asshole so maybe he’ll tell me to tone it down a bit. Honestly I think I did a fair job, but it’s important to start off on the right foot with the HR/talent acquisition team. I’m confident we can work out the issues that are standing in the way of a deal. Probably the most significant deal of my life beyond getting married and having kids. Lord help me.
Much progress on Anchor yesterday, I learned a lot by going through the Travis yml files and some of the build commands. I actually want to do a podcast series where I walk through it, and go through the tests. They’re actually better learning experience than the tutorial examples.
I didn’t want to use my face though, and wound up looking at some avatar apps. ReadyPlayer.me has an avatar creator, and you can even export it into the FaceRig successor, Animaze. It’s a bit wonky, the lighting isn’t great upstairs at night, and I don’t think I can run it on Linux, so I’ll have to figure it out.
I’ve spent most of the day writing the email and farting around on Twitter. It’s currently lunchtime and I need to get some food and get to work. I got about two hours before I need to pickup Younger from the bus.
Speaking of who, yesterday she decided to take her rubber stamp to the walls and doors leading from the kitchen to upstairs. I swear that kid loves to destroy everything in this house. And I’ve been fighting with Elder over her Halloween costumes. She’s been acting entitled and I’m having none of it. They both seemed like they were trying to test me, Missus was sick in bed yesterday and it never fails that they always try me when that happens. Maybe it’s me.
Enough griping. Time to roll.
