City Guides

January 24th, 2016 | Posted by pftq in Random Stuff | #
Just my thoughts and notes on where to go in each city, what's worth seeing and doing, what I enjoy in each city anyway.  Not so much a guide as much as a set of bookmarks for myself.  For a more anecdotal sense of what the three major coastal US cities are like, check out NYC vs SF vs LA.

Massive Projector Screen and Adjustable Stands

January 18th, 2016 | Posted by pftq in Blabberbox | #
Having some fun creating a new room setup with a massive projector screen (aka the entire long wall of the room) and going a bit crazy with the amount of adjustable stands/standing desks all around.  The screen is so massive (20ft wide) and so close (less than 10 ft away).  The tables/trays literally rotate and unfold in front of you, are adjustable to any position, and disappear when you're done using them.  Makes the whole room feel like a starship of sorts.  Tongue

The projector is the Optoma GT1080 and the stands don't even have a name, some obscure Asian item sold on Amazon here.

What Would God Do

Why would you not aspire to be God? Isn't he supposed to be the best? Why wouldn't he be your role model instead of the guy beneath him?

Illusion of Chance

January 9th, 2016 | Posted by pftq in Thought of the Day | #
There is no such thing as luck, no such thing as chance.  Someone always made it happen, whether intentionally or by accident.  If not yourself, then you are letting someone else control your fate.
