HeadsDown, TSN, and more

My how time flies. It’s almost time to re-register HeadsDown, and considering that I did almost as much with it in 2001 as I did in 1998 (the year I first registered it), what a waste. Other than this site, and my e-mail accounts, HeadsDown could have died and nobody would have been the wiser.

Work’s been pretty fun lately, I’ve finally started really working on the Encoding Stations, and built about 3/4 of it today. Tomorrow I’ll be adding the final wiring to it, and then I’ll be able to start actually using the thing. I’m going to make sure that I take some pictures of it for posterity’s sake, and also so that I can show people I actually know what the heck I’m doing. From looking at it, one would swear that I have stock in a wire tie company.

My current diagram is absolutely hilarious. I took a piece of paper and drew out the equipment I needed, and added the connections, and then drew lines all over it to the pieces. It looks like something a three year old did, but it actually makes sense!

Here’s the obligatory “Best Of” section.

Album Du Jour: My 2001 remix disc (track list coming soon)

DVD of the week: Monty Python and the Holy Grail. Wicked two disc set with all kinds of goodies.

Game of the week: I played Grand Theft Auto 3 until 3 in the morning the other night. It’s evil.

Website of the week: I don’t go to it nearly enough yet, but PopCultureShock is an awesome site. It’s by the designer of Psycomic V2, and it’s really well laid out. I love it.
