With the good news from Mayo, and the moved up results date, I have decided I am gonna really bear down on the class and hopefully finish it in a week or two. I ran into a problem though, and the best I can figure out is that the MacBook Air I have been using doesn’t have enough RAM to do what I am asking it to do. I get an out of memory error every time I try to run the script, and I have checked my script against the instructors 100 times, they are duplicates, so its not user error. I plan to upgrade systems, and try it on Teresa’s big iMac. When I bought it I had them install extra memory, so I shouldn’t run out of memory on it. I’ll have to go back a lesson or two and recreate what I could and did do on the MacBook Air, so I am at the same point in the lesson. But what we are doing right now seems fairly easy and I should be able to recreate most of it without even looking at the instructor’s. Everything is gonna be fine.
Today/tonight is supposed to be snowy and blowing snow. Glad it didn’t hit last night. Tomorrow is supposed to be bone chilling cold again, wind chills at -25 to -35. OK, Mr. Winter, we understand you like really cold. We surrender, let it warm up again, PLEASE. The brutal cold is only supposed to last 1 day though, then its supposed to just be cold and snowy for several days.
The snow of Monday means I am gonna reschedule Drew and my lunch again. We will eventually go out to lunch again. Might be deep in the heart of Spring, but it’ll happen.
Speaking of Spring, its 41 days and change away. Cool.
I bought the book Drawing for the Absolute Beginner. I want to learn to draw. Figure this book is as good a place to start, for I am an absolute beginner. I am hoping to eventually be able to draw things that resemble people. I don’t care if they are perfect people drawings, but look enough like people that real people can look at them and recognize them as people. I have always wanted to be able to draw, and they say its never to late to start to learn. I thought about going thru YouTube videos, but I ultimately decided a book would be better. I think after my web development class, I am not ready for another video learning where the instructor goes too fast.
Didn’t work on my Project yesterday for obvious reasons. Gonna resume today collecting pics off wiki. I should be done with the pic collecting in a week or so.
I have to decide now, with the results coming so soon, am I doing my seriously starting my Project next week or waiting till the end of the month. I am seriously thinking of waiting till the end of the month. Yeah, give me more time to get everything prepared. The end of the months is when I was planning all along.
Yep, official announcement about my Project will happen February 28th. Programming on the website will begin March 1st. With hopeful launch date being March 31st or sooner or later. A lot has to happen between March 1st and March 31st. Not just building a website. It’s all good, it’s all good. Plus I believe I start the medical plan I mentioned last night in March. So that’s gonna put a damper on getting things done. So, launch date will happen, when it happens. I hope to have all my ducks in a row before launch date. And I will shoot for March 31st, but not be disappointed if it’s really some time in April or May even.
So much to do and I am doing it all myself. But when it gets done, I will be proud to say, “I did all that.”
