Why do projects fail? This guy thinks he knows, and it makes sense.
“It’s a failure of the last mile.”
A journey of 1000 miles begins with a single step.
This is that step. I am atÂ Haaseltons, the local coffee shop hammering out the structure for this site so I can make some style sheets and back end code for it.
The idea is pretty simple, I want a blog, a guestbook of sorts (the shout-outs box) and a place to showcase any work I’m proud of (the soon to be Portfolios section).
Well, I won’t waste any more time on declaring what I’m doing and I’ll get back to doing it! This is exciting (for me at least!)
Iï¿½ have just ordered a new laptop and it should be in at the store later this afternoon.
Of course I had to throw a monkey-wrench into the equation and add 512Mb RAM to the original 512Mb to make 1Gb RAM after the laptop had already arrived in store.
To see if I wanted this laptop, I wanted to test it’s 3D speed. To do this I basically ran aï¿½ program I made that putsï¿½ 10000 random triangles up on an OpenGL window and spins them around. It did this quite well. It rendered them quicker, in fact, than my workstation at work.
I’m excited! 😀
Another problem. This time a MiniDV tape which was miss-labeled by my co-worker causes me to duplicate 75 incorrect DVDs and 10 incorrect VHS… I even reviewed the content and it looked similar to the content that was supposed to be duplicated.
But it was not.
I’m just exasperated… I do everything right and it still blows up in my face. Dammit!
I have no style…
… the reason, is because I have prioritized much of my life above this personal web log. Perhaps I need to change that soon and spruce up the place. It looks dull.
