Title: The 'What Did You Accomplish Today?' Thread
Post by: CrystalDragonSpaceMarine on January 02, 2010, 06:45:14 pm
I decided to do something new.

Instead of "taking a sabbatical" which usually fails (lol guys, I'm still posting here), I instead will keep some accountability for my goals *here*, in this thread.

You guys too! Use this thread to declare what you accomplished today, no matter no big, or how small.

Today, I:
1. Worked an 8 hour shift.
2. Was nicer than usual to customers.

And that's it. Today was...less than productive. But I have big plans for tonight!

1. Cleaned and oiled my Grandad's 30-60 year old tools which he gave me Yesterday.
2. Told the Mrs. that I want a divorce
3. Went out and shopped for some Microwave meals.
4. Moved into the spare bedroom.
5. Caught up with the Internet.

This is also yesterday... The fact that i came home unscrached is quite a miracle.
I was driving on the highway when extreme mist froze of my car window. I couldn't see anything anymore because the snow on my hood clogged the window water thinghy. So i was driving 60 k an hour with no vision and didn't know if i was driving to fast for cars in front of me or to slow for cars that would come up behind me. I had about 5 terrifing minutes until i finaly reached the viaduct near my hometown and i was able to get of the highway in one piece.
I was litteraly trembling in fear.

with funds required, effort and cooldown time I estimate that there's only a %15 chance she'd bother to kill you

... unless she knows someone over there she can contact and count on to exact vengeance in which case there's less cooldown, less effort and less funds required... but since it's someone else they probably wouldn't be as deadly as Kashi so your chances of survival go up, putting the odds at around %30

I did, It's what I accomplished today  :P

Actually I accomplished a bit of a stalemate between two of my work colleges who have been seriously waring and arguing.  Both of them are from Northern Europe so the boss thought they'd get on fine when he hired the other guy... unfortunately the one already working for us is an ex member of the Air-force while I think the other used to be a hippie o.O

Other than that I continue to work on various new years resolutions such as sorting out my marriage, doing a daily crossword and sudoku, learning Japanese and watching more anime or reading more Manga.

Conquest over fat at least. I'm pretty much just doing exercises that burn fat.  Once I've got rid of that I'll concentrate on building muscle with strength exercises.

DAMMIT! I just realised I missed doing a crossword yesterday!  There goes my resolution to do a crossword every day.  grrr, It's cos I went home sick before lunch and my routine was to do one during my lunch break.  Oh well, I'll just do two today and keep at it.

Why the crosswords?  For mental acuity, or just because you like them?

Mental and to widen my vocabulary.  Probably good practice for writing to (i.e. know the words out there that i can use).  I'm just doing online ones and they're pretty easy.

Got in a run this morning and the usual warm-ups and exercises.

The cars were wrecked though, hit my right hand front corner (passenger side) on her left front corner (driver's side) and the Hilux sort of shaved her bonnet, compressed her engine compartment and pushed the driver's side backwards, jamming the door, denting the beam of the windshield and breaking the side window, while mauling the Hilux's condenser and bumper back to the hull beams and steering actuators in that corner.

Just type it in on google, they say you shouldn't unless it has a very dirty spot or something and then you just localy rinse it.

A healthy rabbit should never be bathed.  They keep themselves very clean without any help from us. 

A sick rabbit with a messy bottom may sometimes need to be locally bathed, and you can find instructions for that.
but if your bunny is healthy, then please do not bathe her *ever*.  It can cause enough stress to kill the bunny!  We know of more than one tragic rabbit death that appears to have been caused by nothing more than a bath.

However, I wasn't pleased with my results for the shooting test so I asked to be failed and rescheduled to take the course again at a later date when I'm more practiced with my rifle instead of re-taking the test.

But instead of dropping a smal tissue in it you drop the whole toilet roll!!
BUT!!! now you really get the cramps and you have to go, so what do you do?
YESH!!! You crap all over the huge toiletroll that is stuck in the toilet and try to flush that's what you do!!
Afterwards you feel so ashamed of the clogged and overflowing toilet you lock the door from the outside and leave.

I feel your pain.  Back when I took physics it was the same way.   I remember my physics teacher hated me though and kept telling me to drop out.  I ended up passing with an A- I think.   Even though he purposefully screwed my grades up a time or two.  Long aggravating story.

I'm not sure if this counts but earlier, while trying to get on the Max train (the form of public transportation in the Portland, Oregon area) no one held the door for me when I called them to, and no one pushed the door-open button when I asked. So on the next train, I started holding a door open, even after the doors were closing for a few minutes. When asked why I was holding the door I said "because no one else would." Maybe this well being inspiring for this guy or something.

During an airsoft game limited to pistols and pump-action shotguns on the 14th, I managed to sneak into the back of a derilict sawmill part of the field and into the pitch black tools storage corridor. There I waited to see if anyone on the other team above had heard me. Heard someone back at my entry point shouting to someone above not to shoot down through holes in the floor, concluded that my team mate who held the entry had been eliminated.
I waited in the dark, pistol ready and spotted the one who shouted making his way through the debris diagonally across from me, having walked through the main hall paralell to my hiding place. I trailed him with my pistol for a couple of heartbeats, then fired with a satisfying grunt and a 'tagged' from my target!
Half a minute later, another of his teammates followed his trail to see where he was shot from and try flushing me out... he never saw my single 'killshot' either until it was too late!

Clearly made the right decision.  Today I accomplished depositing the bonus check that I randomly got from work that completely offset what I paid in tuition yesterday.

Fired up the foundry for the first test run today.  Ended up going beyond testing to full on production of Aluminium Ingots and even dared to go into Brass territory. 

Lesson learned, I build flame throwers way more badass than other people.  Which means I need to start building crucibles that are way more bad ass.  2200 F flames + crucible rated 1800 F ish = some cracking.

What are you doing with the ingots?

What are you doing with the ingots?
  I simply melted down random scrap into ingots that are sized to go back into the cuppola.  The point being that every time you melt/pour metal, it tends to become a little bit purer. (If you do it right)   Also, it makes it easier to store. 
So in future, I know that when I add an ingot to the foundry, every ingot of Aliminium I add will be about 1lb.  Plus a small pile of ingots look more impressive sitting on a shelf than a barrel in the side yard full of scrap  :)


Today, I modified the burner to hopefully be more efficient!  Don't know if I'll get around to testing that this weekend or not though.

Nice!
I discovered a metal-fatigue break on one of the crews holding the electric winding magazine for my airsoft M240B and trying to dissassemble the magazine, I accidentaly broke the wires going into one of the power connectors. But I plan to build my own magazine out of the parts anyway because the original BB holder was cardboard and I want something a bit more moisture resistant...

Helped a buddy score a nice tool find.  $475(u.s) horizontal metal band saw for just $40.

The key to a successful negotiation strategy is to be polite, be punctual, be persuasive, be persistent and annoy the PISS out of the person you're tying to buy from so that they just give in to get rid of you.

Modified the welder cart to fit the new plasma cutter as well.  (AWESOME.)  And replaced the leaky compressor regulator I've been putting up with in the shop for months. And did a lot of shop clean up/organizing.  A clean shop is soooo nice.
