Poke Poke Poke

As I work on next post. This off the wall post will have to do.  🙂

I get poked all the time. Men, women, goats. It doesn’t matter. LOL There are the people that poke and when you poke back, like a robot an instant poke back. That’s darn right odd. You have the hokyPoke, Do the HokyPokey ya know the thing with your left and right legs. Pokémon, Gumby and Pokey, Poke Salad, Poke fish, and if you have the off the wall religion. “The Poke” is arriving soon! It was also my understanding that if a stranger pokes you and you answer back they’ll have temporary access to view your profile even if it is listed as private thus finding a living person from the poke. If you poke too many people you could end up with a finger disease@! “Fuck you now becomes Poke You”. Sorry for the bad word. But, it fit and I thought it was funny.

There’s nothing more common than the commonality about commonness and the ability to not read this post. #kravis

Circle Of Miles And Taxes

Gas taxes in the state of Washington based on http://dor.wa.gov/content/findtaxesandrates/othertaxes/tax_mvfuel.aspx  we’re taxed about .67 per gallon of gas sold.  A lot of our property taxes go for highway projects as well.  Changing to the system of miles traveled will cause in the short term a drop of state tax revenue.  And, you know they will try and replace that lost income.  Keep incentives for purchasing electric cars and charge declining flat tax based on purchase price over the life span of the car. Transportation and autonomous vehicles will become a reality. Uber is experimenting in Ohio and has made an autonomous beer delivery run.

Take a look at a map and draw a circle in a 100 mile radius from your home you’ll be surprised at how much there is to do and see right where you live.  We don’t get much out of our home zone.  And, within that zone lies our commute paths. To and from work. And, on weekends an occasional trip across the mountains.  Other than taxation for miles driven, possibly tracked by gps, laws will have to be assessed to see how to protect our privacy. New laws either need to be created or old ones enforced to protect our privacy and our home locations.  From the metric centric point of view, the correlations provide a unique challenge for all of us.  Just random thoughts. J

Electric hybrids are supposed to be more efficient and at this time our state don’t tax based on miles driven.

People who work in SF, sometimes live 2-3 hours away from the job. Would self-driving cars change that?  Not sure but If I were to take an automatic vehicle I would hope that there would be lanes of traffic to account for autonomous driving.

10 years into the future a self-driving car will be smaller and lighter. They will go forward and back and from side to side.  The rules of the road will have changed because these little things would get crushed.  You’ll start out in the morning leaving in your self-driving car. You strap in and pull down the table in front of you and get comfortable for the commute. On your head are the latest in 3D real vision. You’ll Watch a little news, reply to email and take a quick 3d selfie to post on the airwaves channel. Life is good.

Arriving stress free at work your self-driving car drives directly to the parking garage elevator where you are whisked away and delivered promptly to your office.  Lunch is 3d printed ham and cheese on rye. . Life is good.

On the way home, put your 3D real vision on get lost playing the latest game.  Arriving home safe and rested, Life is good.

Perhaps flex time. Commute every other day in the self-driving cars.  It is and will happen as roads get more congested.

What solutions would you offer for autonomous and self-driving vehicles?

3D ART :- In The Park

Spring brings out all the flowers.

ElsieMay Is The Green Eyed Lady.

When I put this together today, I was think about the song “Green Eyed Lady by SugarLoaf song link here (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i_i7PKdQJU4) Not sure if that’s appropriate do but it helps kind of explain my image. I get no credit for this link, it’s a great song. Please let me know.

I checked around for a dress that would work for the image I was thinking about. When I found it I said that will do! The background is a web find. Will have to do better in that documentation. The dress from Renderosity. And from Daz3d, I used Avelyn hair, greenish lips and nails from Akasha, the eyes I used from the green macro eyes and made one pupal smaller to emulate partial light from the side. Then posed with vogue poses for eva 7. Over all I think it turned out nicely. Learning the art of 3d is important as I move more into VR and VR programming This is starting out to be a fantastic fun ride.

PowerShell The Basics ( for me anyway )

PowerShell The Basics ( Profiles )

If you use one of the search engines now available you’ll find tons of information containing videos and blogs on what PowerShell is and explanations showing how to use it.  Simply put it could be any one of these things

  • What is PowerShell?
  • PowerShell Cmdlets
  • PowerShell Snapins
  • PowerShell Modules
  • PowerShell Remoting
  • Navigating in PowerShell
  • PowerShell Profiles

These are a  few things that I like to do when setting up PowerShell on my machine and machines in the environments where I typically work.  Providing that you have access to machines in your domain and the role you have can limit some processes within PowerShell. For example you might not have AD (Active Directory) access to review users or computer roles. But, if access is granted PowerShell can be of value. Read more…

IPad Pro and Keyboard Issue

September 8, 2016 Leave a comment

When I bought my IPad PRO 9.7 I included a keyboard that also doubles as a  cover. This also  connects via the magnetic port.  I didn’t realize the material covering the keyboard is like a dust magnet that catches all kinds of stuff. And when the cover is closed can scratch the screen of the iPad even when wiping off. In my case that’s what happened. So, using one of my apple care incidents I returned the iPad and got a new one.@

But this time I wanted to save the iPad from ware and tare so elusive abuse that it could endure as part of my photo workflow is kept nice and clean.  I researched cases and covers for the new iPad Pro and choose the otter box  defender. With the IPad in the otter case you’re unable to use the keyboard any longer.

So, I shopped around and found the Microsoft universal folding keyboard to work quite well with blue tooth on the iPad. I’m still getting used to the split on the keyboard and that will come with practice. I also like that the keyboard folds to approximately the same size as a CD jewel case.

So far this keyboard has been used primarily on this post.

I also purchased the Shure MV88 microphone. How does this relate to the keyboard? Doesn’t really , but with the otter case on the IPad my MV88 would no longer plug into the IPad so, just a heads up get a small extender that will allow lighting devices to be used while in the case.  (just posting the cable I purchased. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00GP08858/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s03?ie=UTF8&psc=1 ). I liked it because I can plug into my otter case and can use my microphone.
