a reality in photos

There has been a lot going on recently. Not, like, a lot externally. Well, maybe a little bit externally: I travelled to Germany for work, for instance. But there's really been quite a lot internally. Given all that, I think none of it is really suitable to go here these days, though. Instead, here are some snapshots of a reality that I'd like to share with you: I hope you enjoy.

Life is made of small moments like these.

I have a lot of photos to post over the next little while, but in the mean time, congratulations to [livejournal.com profile] gamergirl774 (and Patrick!) on their impending marriage!

Upgrading a BitHead

Not the usual photoset, but it is a photoset, so I guess it goes here...

I went to Carnival again this year! And once again, I took some photos (which I sorted into mini-albums).

I took more pictures of things I saw this year, rather than trying to turn the world around me into pictures. The results are less pictures that look like pictures, and more pictures that look like the world, which is not quite as much fun to look at. Probably, there is a balance in the middle somewhere. But, there are a few in there that I liked.

For the past two weeks, I've been wearing a Pebble Steel smartwatch on my left wrist, replacing the long tradition of Timex Ironman watches that I've worn since I was about 10 years old. Since the device is something of a novelty, I figured I'd write at least a short review of it, and have a quick discussion of my feelings about it so far. [1]

a review that is *way* too long to fit on your friends page )

captured in the light, we could count the stars

(I did not fly across the country only to go climbing, but it was a pretty good side effect.)

I went to Carnival! And I took some pictures, too.

This time, I tried to get better at taking pictures of people, but I took some pictures of things, too.

I tried submitting this through their web form. It spun for about 90 seconds, then gave up and said "An error occured while fetching the URI. Please retry.". You can't make this kind of shit up.

Hi, LiveJournal!

A week or so ago, I promised at least some of you some real content. I've been working off and on for a few months on writing this, then polishing it up for general consumption (thanks to Ben Wolf for helping me clean it up!). I got the inspiration from working in what was essentially the "chip emergency room" for a few months, and then at the same time reading Gene Kranz's "Failure Is Not an Option"; I realized that over that time, I had developed a set of techniques to help systemize debugging, and I figured it might be interesting to share it with the rest of the world.

So, without further ado: On Solving Hard Problems.

Hi, LiveJournal! I went to see a show recently, and I took some photos. By the way, if you liked Above & Beyond's previous albums (Sirens of the Sea and Tri-State), you should buy their new one (Group Therapy). It's pretty good -- a lot like the previous two, but more of it.

I promised a few more photos; here's a handful of buggy shots.
I also wrote some words, too.

more behind the cut )

More photos of booth and concert tomorrow.

Hi LiveJournal. I went back to Pittsburgh for Carnival.

I have a few more pictures that are worth a damn. I'll post them later, yeah?

A thing

(click for more different)

Hi LiveJournal! I haven't posted a picture of a thing I made in a long time. I made a thing. Well, actually, I made two things: my job over the past n months was to bring the chip in the middle to life, so that was kind of "my" thing; and, I cast it into resin myself. This is sort of a prototype, but I intend to make them thin enough that one could conceivably put them on a keychain.

I also wrote a thing, and built another thing; I have to talk to some folks at work to make sure some of the stories in the thing I wrote is OK to share with the world before I can tell you, though. I'll have pictures of the other thing I built sooner or later, but it's not done yet.

I also post things about being a human being sometimes, but actually that goes more on Twitter nowadays. If I know you, I'll accept your follow request -- I am @jwise0.
