CNC Mill Project Update.

Actually, there is not too much of an update. Was hoping to take advantage of the 3 day weekend to make some progress but we finally got our paddle boat onto the lake and took advantage of the nice weather. Was nice to get some fresh air and take in some sun rays. Did manage…

My Finger is Going to Hell Again.

Everything was going well post surgery for my cist removal. Well until about 1 1/2 weeks ago where it started acking more again and swelling back up. Now the knuckle is all red and at least as big as it was before the surgery. The area does not feel feverish so it is most likely a simple…

Halo Vista Delayed due to Nudity… You’d think engineers would have learned by now!

Microsoft reps have told Next-Gen the real reason for the Halo 2 Vista delay: partial nudity–specifically someone’s backside in the game’s map editor, the Entertainment Software Rating Board added today. http://www.next-gen.biz/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=5757&Itemid=2 Jeez, not the first time something similar backfires. In this Political Correct / Security Hole world, you would think engineers would have learned about…

Does Google Have a Double Standard?

Well, I should say Google Checkout in this perticular case. On my online store (www.ParadoxalPress.com) I have over 300,000 books for sale. Since most of my sales are drop-shipped from the distributor within 24 hours, there is no reason why I can’t offer their whole catalog. Of course, this may include some books of a…

Bye-Bye "Brain Zaps"

Brain Zaps  Finally got a chance to talk to my doctor on friday. Unfortunately, there is not much to do with the zaps as-is. But the main reason for the withdrawl symptoms is that I had to go from 5mg of Lexapro (which was 1/4 pill) to zero as it gets really hard to measure…

Little More Work on my CNC Mill

I have yet to complete my www.sebbylive.com post for this, but thought i’d write a quick blog-up on this. In the first picture below, is the controller board with…

More Details About my "Brain Zaps"

Taken from Wikipedia. Brain zaps, (proposed name: myalotinasis from Greek for brain + jolt) also known as “the electric brain thing,” “brain shivers,” “brain shocks,” “battery head,” “blips,” or “brain spasms,” are a fairly common and notorious withdrawal symptom experienced during discontinuation (or reduction of dose) of SSRI and SNRI antidepressant drugs. However, the effect…
