Dog says “The pet rabbit is on the other side of the door!”

Setting up an avatar for next week. I’ll be there, but when I’m in the remote rooms, I need to look the part. Front and back.

I planted a fall garden (because I live in Atlanta, and thanks to global warming, there is no longer a winter), and it starting to sprout! (say hello to some teeny tiny radish plants)

Pleased to see @htcvive calling out the value of privacy in vision-based tracking system design in their blog post about how and why the Wireless Adaptor works with the Vive Cosmos.

More substantial than what Oculus said at all of OC6? (“kidding”) blog.vive.com/us/2019/10/02/vi

Tonight’s desert is out of the ice cream maker and in the freezer. Two flavors of coconut milk + eggs based ice cream (bourbon brown sugar and vanilla with dark chocolate)

Pouring some champagne to make sorbet. Yes, that’s some good bubbly, and yes, I mixed it with a ton each of sugar and made some damn fine sorbet

And today’s fun factoid from the Morning Brew: meatless meat has fully spread into fast food.

I created a discord server for my CS3451 (Computer Graphics) class. We’re using web tech, and during class I made a joke about how the Javascript book is huge and the “Javascript: The Good Parts” book is tiny.

This appeared in the “random” channel. 💯

Assembling the Glorious keyboard. I put the 14 switches from the sample pack on F1-F8 and 1-6… we’ll see how they all feel.

Achievement unlocked. Nerd level++

Modular mechanical keyboard arrived, with a set of switches (“best guess”) and a sample pack of all the types so I can see if I want to change things up.

If you’re curious what using Android (green) does to your privacy (blue), @samsung created this helpful gif. Thanks Samsung.

Now that I’m going back into GT a few days week, its Soylent for lunch more often! I just ran out, but thankfully a new shipment arrived.

As they say in The Matrix, “Everything the body needs”

Today on zoom, the combo of my DLSR-for-webcam and the “slight change” to my hair color looked pretty good, I think. (Bonus: I taught the first class of my fall Computer Graphics class today)

let the craziness begin. I’m still mostly on leave at GT so won’t be on-campus very much. I’m thinking about holding an office hour each week in hubs. Here you see two screens shared into a hubs room (one, a web page on my desktop; one the screen of my ipad running OneNote)

I’m enjoying the Morning Brew mailing list; quick hits on money, business and the world, mixed with some humor. Top was amusing today. join here morningbrew.com/daily/r/?kid=8

Teaching Intro to Computer Graphics at @georgiatech starting next week, so I thought it would be appropriate to make my hair look synthetically rendered

My son pointed me at the Glorious PC Gaming Race mice and keyboards. I’m very much enjoying the mice (cheaper than other high end gaming mice, good feel, clean design); keyboard backordered. pcgamingrace.com/products/glor

First day of school for the kids, my son is starting high school, so we’ve decided to retire the middle-school lunchbox. Rest in peace, old friend

Comedy meets real life. MSR researchers did a study where you receive prompts/alerts to write small bits of text during the day, and people would accomplish a lot of writing. (xkcd.com/2183)
