The last few weekends of mine have been slow and rather stupid feeling. Yesterday was one of those where I slept until maybe 1 pm and got up and didn’t do much. I did go on the pizza place and got some grocerys. To day was different.
I’ve mentioned at least once here that I have an MSI WindPad 110W tablet. Someone made one of those “don’t read the comments” comments I read insulting the company for its name (they called it “FartPad”) and model (110W = 110 watts, an outrageous power draw for a tablet). For their understandable reasoning, but not unjust trollishness, I agree it is odd sounding.
None of that has to do with my improvement to it, which is to remove the cameras.
I’ve finally turned up enough matter from official New Jersey websites to warrant flooding my blog with them all at once. (There is an animated GIF at the end.)
This has been sitting in my place, and then scanned to a PDF, but I have to post it here before it gets lost in a fire or I die or something: POWRfull
It is a slide rule for metricating, or going backwards too. Far more than anything else for the purpose, it is a classical “New Jersey style” tool that does one thing, well. Here are immages:
Other than being made by Sterling in the United States, and of course being in the ISRM about two-thirds of the way down this page, it is perfect. It will live again, especially when I find out how to vectorize it or make Excel use it.
“What? Who’s… Jimmy?”

In American English, the “C-suite” refers to all the various head positions at a firm, named because they all have “Chief” in their tituls. The most notorious by far is CEO, or “Chief Executive Officer”, who runs all of the other C-suite inhabitants. There are others, as CPO (privacy), COO (operating), CFO (finantial), CIO (information), and what ever other tituls the organization wants.
I am going to propose something that will add another “CCO” to the Wikipedian list already compiled: Chief Calmness Officer.
We are almost all familiar with the hair trigger of societal media going off half cocked1 on partial information, sometimes maliciously cooked up, often not.
I am back from a very short visit for business and nonpleasure to another place.
My request is that someone would make one of those true-crime forensics TV shows showing how someone at the State Fair went and gave me this sore throat.
but I like it!! There is useful work to do, and work that is useful and appeals to my (unofficial) OCD.
It has been a while since I posted. I was on vacation. Now I have a bunch of stuff to scan and many screen shots from previous time to put up and comment on.
I merged two directories and there was one file conflict. It was the same file, so I told Windows to not bother moving it. Then, to delete it, I absentmindedly Ctrl-x (cut) the file and then… opened the Recycle Bin and pasted it there. It worked, but how bizzare.
