Ha! And you thought I would let this month slip by without a post, didn't you? Well take this!

Now I just have to think of something worthy to post about.


Well... I'm working again. At the same place as last summer, so it's really boring. My department is also currently on mandatory overtime, so I'm working 10+ hours a day. That combined with 8+ hours of sleep a night doesn't leave much time for anything else. At least I'm getting paid well, especially for the overtime.

I saw Spiderman 3 and liked it, then I watched Spiderman 2 again. Dr. Octopus is my favorite villain, so I still kind of like 2 best of the series. Seeing those giant metal tentacles has ignited the engineer in me, and I am now trying to come up with a way to build my own set of Doc Ock arms. I think I have a idea that might work, but it will take some development to bring it into the realm of reality, and even more tweaking to make it something that I could build. That's speaking of the physical structure, though. The control programming is far beyond me and I'm sure would be hideous even to someone who knew what they were doing.

In the meantime, I'll be working on a free-standing retractable table for my room (a tower that lowers a flat working surface onto my bed when I want it, then lifts it up to the ceiling when I don't).
