We've had this stupid sea of river rock right that you have to walk across to get to the back yard for, like, ever.

It's stupid and a pain, but I was able to ignore it until recently, when it seemed to start bothering Zsa Zsa more. So I made a quick and dirty walkpath with concrete pavers and some extraneous edging logs we had in the backyard. It's pretty half assed, and I'm probably going to pull it apart and upgrade/re-do at a later date, but it's supposed to snow in the next couple days so I wanted to get it done before then. (It's like 80F today, though.)

Anyway, janky and half assed as it is, the dogs love it. They love it so much they're wanting to go outside every ten minutes or so.

An update to Windows 10 on my MacBook Air stuck at 19% for the better part of a day, and nothing--shutting down the Internet, quitting "Settings," quitting Windows, restarting the entire computer--could dislodge it. So I googled how to fix Windows Update, downloaded a troubleshooting app from Windows Support, ran that (which uninstalled the most recent update, and fixed a few things), and then started to download the new update again. It stuck at "100% downloaded," this time, and stayed that way overnight. In the office this morning, I ran the troubleshooting app one more time, and this time, the update downloaded and installed without a problem.

I'd blame the Windows 10 (on by default) peer-to-peer update process.

I upgraded my old Eee PC 701 so it would work with a modern distro. Scary stuff as I had to take it completely to pieces and solder some components inside to expand the amount of RAM and SSD available. The pads I had to solder to are about 32 to the inch so I needed a magnifying glass. I also added a wireless mouse/keyboard receiver for a proper mouse and a full size keyboard when I want one. USB stick and mouse for scale. It's now running Xubuntu 16.04 and the latest Firefox browser.

Yeah, that's not petty. That's actual rocket surgery.

I read that as "not pretty". Checks out.

Still awesome, though!

I sold an item on Redbubble. I have sold one sticker, and there's at least a 75% chance someone bought it for me specifically, but I have sold an item to a person who is not me.

I managed to harass and stalk enough customers to have 31 of them attend an event at my work last night. 37 RSVP'd and 31 showed which is really an accomplishment considering it's December and dark as fuck out at 4:30pm and that no one was really interested.

One of those sites that you can buy custom artwork for phone cases, stickers, cards, clothes. etc.

I posted some photos to a couple of these sites so I can make some items with my pictures on them. For example, my current phone case is one of my evaporated whiskey photos.
