    Being stuck at the Hospital for the week, I have a bit of free time to do some coding for my personal projects.

    Oh no, I hope everything is fine.

    By the way, I don't think the hospital would care for Arduino IOT projects being done in patient rooms

    I think it'd be hilarious if it made the flat line noise so that he could put it random spots around the hospital.

    Re: Post Race!

    I have an adhesive capsulitis on my left shoulder (that blocks the movement of my arm) with some extra pain in the elbow and fingers due to this. They did a Corticosteroid injection in my shoulder to expand the capsule and I have physiotherapy every day. It is not to bad, just painful and reduce some movement and it take a long time to recover.

    By the way, I don't think the hospital would care for Arduino IOT projects being done in patient rooms
    I don't have my Arduinos with me so no risk to get expelled I will work on my mechanical calculus applications (mechanical fatigue and mechanical contact calculator) and maybe take some time to learn a few new things

    I think it'd be hilarious if it made the flat line noise so that he could put it random spots around the hospital.
    Well, the hospital is full of people with covid affection. While a interesting idea, I am not sure they find it hilarious. They may prefer a small robot to carry things or take care of people.

    I have done that already with a piezo actuator. I made a demo in a meeting: I set it on 1Hz and said to my colleagues that it was like the beat of the heart then I set it at 10hz and choose a colleague and tell that it was his heartbeat when one brings to him some work to do. Made laugh everyone but him, I don't know why

    I took a weekend vacation to Hot Springs, AR. The kids love the snow, even though it’s not enough to stick to the ground lol

    Re: Post Race!

    That's a hefty weekend drive from La.

    I drove from Ca to OK non stop once with the kids. Surprisingly the kids handled it well. I had a little Datsun wagon and made the whole back area flat so they could play and sleep. I wonder if there were seatbelt laws in 82, if so, obviously I ignored them. Got pulled over in Az. on the way back, the officer didn't say anything about it.

    No, because my ex would have gotten all pissy if I would have left then home alone. Women, go figure!!

    There are the Tehachapi's and mountains @ Flagstaff and just before Albuquerque. But your right, I40 is mostly a long flat straight road.

    The drive isn’t bad, 8hr total. I took Monday off to make the trip back home and we stayed in Vicksburg last night (about half way).

    It’s snowing much more now! We had a snowball fight!

    As long as he can lease it back from the company we sold it to. That way it comes under the monthly current budget and not the capital account.

    Aren't you on the edge of the storm that is headed that way now? Or will that be all ice?

    We've done really well, so far, but the West depends on snowfall. This is our wet season. We need snow in the mountains to provide water during the dry summer. The last time I looked, we were at 137% of normal for the year. Unfortunately, there hasn't been a drop for the last couple weeks, and that is looking to continue for at least another week. We need more storms, or a solid December won't be enough.

    Recovering from COVID. The first day was the worst I have ever felt in my life. The second day I still felt bad, but I’ve certainly felt worse. The third day I was basically fine. Since then I just get a bit winded.

    I'm just hoping that our inversion doesn't get to the point where we are told not to breathe. We got a brief respite this weekend, as a front pushed out the inversion for a day, or so, but it's supposed to set up again starting today. By the end of the week, the air is supposed to be 'chunky style'. Fortunately, there is talk of a 'more active' weather pattern coming for next weekend. At this time of year, more active means storms, and storms mean wind and the inversion being blown out.
