The Offline Drones

The storm Monday morning was quite a blow, damaging structures, snapping trees, and generally making a mess of things. Fortunately the property here was spared the brunt, and only one cedar tree was snapped, putting a dent in the swing set. It could have been much worse, considering the force of the winds.

I feel pretty good about how I handled the 6 day, storm-induced internet severance. (Dropping by the neighbors with the jPad for email checks doesn’t count.) There were some cursor rituals, to see if there was any magic in the microwave transponder up on the pole here. But over all, I kept my dignity. I chuckle a lot too.

I did get reading material on Muse, getting myself oriented while the net is down. I think I see the mentality behind the process. Some InDesign, some Photoshop, some something else, GoLive maybe? I haven’t designed anything yet, but I am starting to see the tools available and what they do. Here we go again…

Not sure what will happen in a week. Myka may be returning to Brenham. I’ll face that in a week when it happens.  (Update, looks like I’ll be heading back to Brenham around the first of the month.)

The refurb is handling quite nicely, though it still feels a little barren. No permanent collection folders yet. Most document files get sticked over to the old one right away. It’s still my trusted library index. (And it still has QT7 on it.)

A couple of renderings in modo.
