Goodbye 2016

Posted: December 31, 2016 in Life posts, Uncategorized

Would like to say I enjoyed 2016 but it was not the best year ever. It was a year filled with BS and more BS.

Finally we could do no more and decided a big change had to happen. So rather than move into an even smaller place at (which were impossible to find) high rent we opted to look out of province….Alberta to the rescue.

We are now in a home we bought at less (the mortgage payments) than we paid for rent on the Lower Mainland. It is just crazy as the house we found is double the size of what we were in. Not only that I have not heard one siren since we have been here.

Hopefully Now I can get back to being a bit more creative and less stressed out.

All the best to everyone in 2017!

Getting the hell away from the West Coast. Just too over priced and over crowded.

TK_Helmet buildTK_Helmet build_00I love my EFX helmet, don’t get me wrong. It is very nice with it’s symmetry. Sadly it does not have the originals….wonkieness. So with that being the case I finally have in my hands an ATA helmet.

 

 

asrock-ep2c612d16c-4lOkay I’m putting this up for discussion. Not argument. I have a couple Xeon procs (8 Core 2.6 GHz) and a Asrock EP2C612D16C-4L motherboard. The motherboards layout kind of screws up (as seen in pic) one of the PCI-E slots. Want to get a card that will do 4k out to a monitor. Wondering if I can get or if there are short cards that I might SLI or Crossfire to a full card?  Also want at least 64Gbs of memory.There are 16 slots of ram to fill. Just nuts!

Ideas people? Suggestions. “Should have got this or that board” comments will be turfed as this is the route I’m taking.

I finally bit the bullet and have a FB page. Don’t like it really but there are things I like to follow and I shold not clog up my wife’s account with notices. Sound about right?

Just fooling around with a BB8 model in Layout.
Forgive the  crude nature of the animation. I have not done any anim in years.
The model is by Q5Grafx.

Again nothing fancy or spectacular to post but….progress just the same.

People wonder why I’m an atheist? I don’t believe in Fairy tales,no matter the supposed source. I sure as poop don’t believe that a sweating wall is Jesus or some other BS is trying to talk to me.

If you do believe this horse pucky, go to Surrey and check out what looks like a pop can exploding accident on a wall. If the voices start speaking to you in your head….seek medical attention.

Well I got Boxes 6 and 7 on the doorstep on the 28th of Dec. Here is where we sit so far.

Mostly metal frame/super structure. Oh and I tried painting the pilot and co pilot seats out in the damp chill today….Will be repainting them with the airbrush once I have heat in the garage.workshop.

Massive no? The magazine is the size of what you would find at your local magazine shop.

Can’t wait for the next 2 boxes to arrive! The center ring and more framing will be mounted then!
