So I know I haven't posted in quite a while. This is a record, being almost four weeks. The truth is that I haven't been doing much of anything. Well, I did clean my house for a visit with relatives, and I built a second version of a book scanner:
And for the Rodulator project, when last we left it, I had a CNC file that I was going to test on my CNC machine. And here is the baring of the soul: I'm afraid!
The reason is, I spent a lot of time, money and effort on the CNC machine, and if it fails then either I will have more time, money, and effort ahead (i.e. it's a black hole) or it will never work (i.e. it is and always was a waste). So, in a stunning display of perverse logic, I procrastinate and delay and do nothing so that I will not fail! So I remain in this limbo between success and failure.
One of these days I'm going to get over it, slap a piece of wood into the CNC, and run the program, damn the consequences. But not now.
I completed Latin II, and will be starting Latin III on Monday, so that, at least, is progressing well. I'm hoping that by this time next year I will be somewhat locutional in Latin, and will be able to attend next year's Rusticatio, a week-long Latin immersion.
That's all for this week. Perhaps next week I will get back to regular reporting.
