Pebble watch!

pebbledsc05390[1]

Well, after waiting for nearly a year, I finally got my pebble watch yesterday. I’ve been playing with it and have a few issues with it, but most of them are due to apple restrictions. I’ve installed a few tweaks to take care of them and hopefully it works well. Still, I’m very happy to finally be able to use it. It’s weird having my wrist buzz when i get a text but it should mean I don’t miss a message on accident.

Bitcoin mining

Well, I’ve started bitcoin mining. This is going to be interesting. I’ve started running some dual GPU miners and multi CPU miners on some of my machines. I’ve almost got 1 bit coin. Bit coins are currently trading at 1 for US$250. While I expect the price to fall again, I can just wait and see if it goes back up but keep mining in the interim. I don’t expect to be a millionaire or anything, but this is an interesting experiment. I’m doing pooled mining so it isn’t a lucrative as solo mining, but it does allow for more coins gained overall.

Another day, another futile attempt at world domination

Well, I could go into detail about what is happening, but I really don’t want to tell the world about my specific issues. The short version is that I’ve been depressed for a long time now. Work is fine, it’s work. However, where I am lacking is in relationships. On Saturday night I had a minor breakdown. Nothing I couldn’t recover from, but I know where the pain lies. I need to do something about it, but it’s like banging my head against the wall. If I stop trying it hurts more. If I try, at least the pain stays the same. I want to keep moving forward but the past keeps pulling me back.

On other fronts I trek on. The 501c3 is going well, we’ve got a date planed for the board of directors meeting. This should be interesting. I’ve never been part of a board before. In all honesty I’m debating if I even want to be a part of the final result (i.e.: a board member) or just want to help planning. It’s not like I’d be able to in 5 years anyways. However it would certainly be an experience.

Anyways, I hope all is well dear reader. Thanks for taking the time to read this.
