Also bought another Quansheng handheld to “brick” by trying out new programming to extend it’s functions into the 6-meter & HF bands. Mostly for “just listening.” Gonna try some shortwave listening on it also and see how that does. Fun! Even better: Fun for less than $25 with 99.9999% chance of not catching an STD.
The Meta Quest 2 VR ‘helmet?’ came in yesterday. Let it charge for all of 10 minutes before it’s irresistible attraction had it on my face going through the ‘set up’ stuff. Nice! There was a ‘shooting arcade” part of the familiarization app that was really cool. Hope I can find that one (or one like it) in the app store.
I did get this thing to do VR in X-Plane though. So, gotta order the cable to attach it to my computer and a better headband and a battery pack. I won’t be spending a lot of money on ‘games’ but hope to find an app that let’s me redesign my house with VR views. That would be fun to play with.
Probably need to clear a large enough space in the living room to “play” in when doing things other than X-Plane. Good thing I have a huge (huge) living room.
And I can totally see buying a 2nd one for SWMBO someday.
Had a nice day a couple of days ago (OR, We had a day a couple of days ago it wasn’t raining for a couple of hours), so I got out on the tractor and ran up and down the driveway and a little bit of the trail to “stir up the gravel.” Quite fun.
Still psyching myself out for surgery next month.
Freeze Dried some more jello jigglers. Cool. They get really hard and crunchy but slowly melt in your mouth with an absolute burst of flavor. I should market these.
Damn! Meant to post this over a week ago! WHERE did my freakin’ mind go?
Had my last pre-surgery exam yesterday. Went well. Not actually doing too badly for an old guy. At least I’ll die healthy someday.
Still getting used to the Oculus. Haven’t been able to get it to attach to my linux system YET so I can do X-Plane. I will when I’m not so danged busy.
SWMBO bought the complete M*A*S*H tv show and had me order the complete Criminal Minds and wants them ripped and on the server sometime soon. She doesn’t often make requests like that. She must like both shows a lot.
Watching WAY TOO MANY Youtube video’s on knee surgery and what you MUST do afterwards.
Getting too old for this shit.
