#FFFFF #formatFilesForFutureFandom #noNotFFFFound #ludicrousSpeed #labWork//

Working on the site, performance specifically. Almost finished, but still more to go.

More pictures are coming, more stories, more trouble… however, conversion is next inline in a long line of backlog items. First, we recently groomed up ‘picture conversion’, and there we are on the backlog. #FFFFF or #FormatFilesForFutureFandom, has a nice ring to it… Like any backlog ‘debt’ it was time to cut the rope, move away from PNG’s and JPG’s where we can, pulling the images forward. Hopefully we can gain some speed, increase performance while taxing services less as we move into 2022. Of course, you to can have a look at site performance and benefits of a conversion effort, here at PageSpeed Insights. One of many Google Dev tools used in and around our work as part of an ever growing tool kit.

The use of 5f’s #FFFFF here, it’s reminiscent of our days of old… A constant reminder, that reminder that we love what we do; the question becomes this: if you don’t love what you do, today is a chance to change it!

Not telling you to play Dogeminer V2(maybe because I don’t need more people on the Doge servers)! However, got to get this up on the site… The best part of this online game, is the ability to save a downloadable file for some future day. Better screenshots next time! Adding DogeminerV2, to the short list of online desktop games – Dogeminer, Penguin Flight, SuperTux, SuperTuxCart…

#SideProjects’s #BarebonesTorch #Flashlight //

Side Projects – Working on this little widget… cleaning up some old solder welds… #reskilled. Thought I would put a little video together, something simple, little and it lights up the room. A torch? Flashlight requirements – 2 large paperclips, D battery, flashlight bulb and two solder points(a. solder two paperclips together b. one on the negative side as a larger touchpad). Simple right?

Back from the airfield, part 1… what a day, got the TH2 out/up in the air no problems. The landing and the flight was another story. Damage report, minor issues:

  • 2 LED strips out, severed
  • Antennae, severed
  • Power lead loose (+positive lead)
  • Burned/malformed poly frame
  • Fix – clipped and prepped for new wires, new led strips, new poly frame ordered, replaced antennae, re-soldered leads and shrink wrapped wires were applicable.
