I'm writing a tool to combine scaling images to be page friendly (and smaller in size), creating a gallery, uploading the pictures, and generating a post.

So far I've gotten bits of software that handle each phase, so it won't be much more effort to combine it all.

As a test, I've generated this.

I once helped build a 7.3L Ford Power Stroke, then we painted it.

We called the color "pepto-bismal pink", and the flames were stenciled using a cut up piece of cardboard. I think we should have replaced the exhaust manifolds with ceramic ones, but oh well. Money, money, money...

Front shot. Flames on the pulley were ... different.

You can really get an idea of how shitty those exhaust manifolds are from this angle.

I recently came back to LJ. Facebook was nice for a while, I had a good fling with it, but it dawned on me the other day that it didn't really satisfy me. LiveJournal has larger conversations, the ability to handle more.

Facebook is quick and to the point, with instant gratification. I can get off quick.

Livejournal requires more... attention. But with a little effort, it works for you and facilitates everything you ever want. Facebook just gives you what most people want, which satisfies the here and right now, but if you have anything thats out of norm, then you just don't get it. It's shallow.

That said, I look back on what all I've posted to LiveJournal in the last several years and... I'm amazed. I haven't changed a bit in 4 years.

Not entirely true... I've progressed materially. I have a house... but mentally, I've digressed. I don't work projects that are as meaningful anymore; I don't think thoughts that are as controversial anymore. I don't engage people in mentally challenging conversations anymore so much as I just flat out tell them they're stupid.

I blame Facebook and it's short character limit.

I'm back on LiveJournal, I'm engaging my brain again, and I'm looking for new projects to learn and explore with.

I didn't know LiveJournal got updated with this neat feature.

When I make a post here now, it automagically posts a new link to my facebook wall.

You have found my LiveJournal! This is a friends only journal. If you know me, leave a comment here and tell me who you are. If I know you, I'll add you to my friends list.

Sorry for the missing pictures, my web server was actually stolen from me and while I have complete and perfect back-ups, I'm still negotiating with my new service provider for a working public IP address.
