Another List o’ Bullet Pointy Goodness

• We’re getting pretty close to having everything in-hand for the closing on the house. I need to sign something that my wife is sending me today, and I need my DD-214, which is on-order from the VA and should be here no later than the end of next week. Pretty awesomesauce, if you ask me. I’m getting really excited about the move. We have a huge stack of boxes in Kate’s car that I’ll be schlepping upstairs tonight. And while she’s up north this weekend, visiting her granddad, I’m going to be kicking ass on the packing thing.

Paperwork
This is what a mortgage looks like.

Does anyone have a digital camera I can borrow? Specifically, one that includes a tripod and the ability to take photos at a regular, pre-set interval? It’s for my timelapse project (item #74 on my list of 101 Things in 1001 Days). I’ve got a singular wireless webcam, and an old Flip Video that will handle parts of it, but I want to be able to get shots from multiple angles to make this really cool. So, if you’ve got one I can borrow for the weekend of July 29th-31st, please email me or leave a comment.

Cameras
Like this, but different.

• The army teaches you skills you can use in real life. Now I’ll grant you that out in the real world I’ve never had to strip and clean an M-16, do push-ups for dropping the f-bomb, break down an antenna, change the battery in a PRC-77, or polish a pair of combat boots. BUT, INTERNET. JUST WAIT. (While I remember what my point was.) I can work a linoleum buffer like nobody’s fucking business (thanks, boot camp!). And I’ll be rocking that shit at the bike shop sometime soon. Staying late, earning bank, and probably shooting the shit with A-Train on subjects related to framebuilding.

• Also, holy crap. This week has been exhausting. More on that later.

  1. ZoneTrigger. Inexpensive software that turns any webcam into a much more flexible device. It’s designed to take an action (take a pic, take video, play a sound, etc.) when the webcam detects movement. You can set it up to take shots at preset time intervals as well.
