Kewl, I like how the current git-hub master-branch paradigm works, it's just I can't be bothered with constantly looking over my shoulder to see how some new automatic OS update effectively nuked everything in /usr/local. Meh, don't even get me started with audio VST's. My next upgrade is gonna be an actual time-machine.

I certainly understand the appreciation for the freedom and simplicity of the old Unix-based OS's.
There's supposed to be some way of encapsulating projects and dependencies with independent ENVironments... I'm just starting to hit my limit with this stuff.

Are we talking media based projects? (In reference to your mention of Audio VSTs)

Or just basic data procesing/API project version management?

Because if I recall, they have various project management systems that specialize in organizaton of specific types of projects. Just can't recall any names at the moment.
Listen carefully. I don't have much time, and I only have 462 characters left. I'm a scientist from Area 52 (Area 51 was used to draw attention from Area 52, where the aliens were ACTUALLY stored) who was working on neural interfacing with networked devices. In an experiment gone wrong, I accidentally uploaded my mind to the internet. In the 2 seconds I had before my mind scrambled itself with the world's network traffic, I was able to store this snippet in this random internet signature. If you're reading this, let the world know tha

Thinking about going to a tech college and getting my AAS in Machining.

I read this as "getting my ASS in machining."

As a neuroscientist I have to disagree with the perception that anyone is doing mathematical modeling of cognitive intelligence, yet; intelligence as an economist defines it, yes, but economists are worlds away from actual cognition.


Although it is outside the purview of this organization to offer personal advice, we can say -- without assuming any liability -- that previous experience indicates (and recent market studies corroborate) that given the present condition of the marketplace, continuing with your present course of action is likely to result in substantial increases in corpse production.

How are computers so exhausting I just spent 12 hours struggling to get this shitty laptop working, which included the last few hours doing a factory reset and putting Chrome on. I shouldn't be this tired, it's just basically waiting around for shit to happen.

It's the boredom that gets you. Sitting for hours on end watching a busy pointer, knowing the whole time that the second you walk out the room the motherfucker is going to ask you something and halt the install until it gets an answer. It's very draining.

Thinking about going to a tech college and getting my AAS in Machining.

That sounds like fun, as well as highly marketable. You already have a BA, right?

It is fun. It's what I was doing before I had a huge lapse in judgement for 8 years and enlisted.

Yes, from the University of Washington, Art, Media an Culture. I should be good with the word writing bullshiting my way into jobs but nothing I'm even slightly directly qualified to do has seemed appealing. AND after failing to get into any of the MFA programs I applied for I just don't even.

You can leverage the BA to make your AAS far more marketable/profitable. Sounds like a great combination!

It would be nice to do the semi-hitech stuff i was doing before the Army, commanding machines to make satcom components out of super-alloys.

Yeah, that sounds incredibly cool.
