Oh wow, SO ripped off! Tali takes her mask off and I don't get to see it because I'm not shagging her? And then I google because I have to know what she looks like, and the YoT informs me that that stock photo is her? Furrealz? I AM DISAPPOINT.

Anyway, last night's homework: pulling apart that bit of code and running separate chunks of it to see if I could isolate the various parts that made the separate test patterns run. I didn't get any of them to work. Believe it or not, this is progress, because the Arduino IDE is very helpful in saying things like "what.Thefuck is not defined in line X" and that helps me find the bit where what.Thefuck is defined, and also what the bits around what.Thefuck are supposed to do.

But it might be a while before I actually get anything to happen. My mission for Easter weekend is to get the single pixel-chase thing running on the strip, but have it behaving as if my single strip of 64 is actually 5 strips of 12 (with some blank ones on the end cos I don't need them). I expect there will be picking of the Wheel brain for this. Wish me luck.

Also last night, I went on Moo and made myself some cards. I feel like a bit of a wanker, because they have no title, just my name, email and phone number - I mean, what title do I give myself really, given that the purpose of these cards is to give to people I meet at drug policy conferences, burn events, geek/maker dos, hippie festivals, and academic networking thingies, so that they remember we had that conversation about that thing and can get in touch? My work ones have my job title and I've handed out a total of about three in my entire career. But this is sort of different, and I might just end up giving out at least 10. Still feel like a wanker.

But now I'm a wanker with cards.

Disclaimer: Not a wanker with cards like Creepy Magician Guy, I hope. Plz kick me in the shins if I get like that.
