this post counts, dammit

I guess I forgot to post today yesterday. This will count, anyway. Really, the day ends when I go to sleep, not because the clock happens to pass midnight. I’ll (hopefully, if I remember) post again today sometime after I wake up.

Not much to say, which I suppose could be why I forgot to say anything at all. It was a fairly typical day. Went to work, went bowling, went home. Didn’t bowl very well, and for some reason couldn’t concentrate or focus. Not sure why, but it was weird.

When I first got home, all I wanted to do was collapse in bed. I did for a few minutes, but then got distracted by a few more things I wanted to do with my intervalometer. The whole thing is now set up on a ProtoShield (with a mini breadboard), which is nice. I did that for a few reasons. One, to make sure I could take it all off the breadboard and wire it up again from my schematic. It’s not a terribly complicated circuit. The other reason was so I could take it home with me when I go to NY this week for Thanksgiving. My father wants to see it.

I’m looking forward to the next step, which is designing and etching the printed circuit board, so I can put the whole thing together in a small case and be done. Not that I want to stop working on it, because I’m having fun with it, but I want to be able to take it out with me and use it for photography. That was the point of making it in the first place.

What do we win if we are successful at posting everyday?

The satisfaction of a job … done. Not necessarily well done, just done.
