AZ Residency Day 4 — Routine Strike

Today we haven’t done anything at all. Nah, just kid­ding. We seem to have grown well adjus­ted to our new home, the days are almost rou­tine and the nights grown more social, everyone seems to be so tired that work on pro­jects after din­ner doesn’t quite work out as ima­gi­ned.

New ideas for pro­jects still pop up every other second but we’re now slo­wly star­ting to focus more on spe­ci­fics. Pedro seems to be nearly done with the OSC­Bus link to Pachube. And Fran­cesco seems to be polishing up his ants pro­ject some more, atle­ast it was rumou­red that we can alre­ady get some inputs from both the fish and the ants for our pro­mi­sed audio mis­chief ses­si­ons. We haven’t quite mana­ged to have some of those yet, but we defi­ni­tely will. We should also pro­ba­bly con­nect it to Assault­Cube, just to reuse late night gaming pwnage from our gamer resi­dents.

Sér­gio mana­ged to get the hall lights also syn­ced up to OSC so it’s now clear that com­plete and total world domi­na­tion is emi­nent.

Filipe has been busy with his secret new pro­jects and also pet-sit­ting his fishies, who seem not to be doing so great, pro­ba­bly new water tank rela­ted, so they’re get­ting a new one tomor­row!

Jorge been busy all day buil­ding a frame for his VJ mixer, it’s loo­king good by now, just wish my brain could alre­ady be able to fil­ter the dre­mel sound by now!

Cata­rina and Tiago tried to assem­ble a new breed of TV-B-Gone’s, but seem to have fai­led mise­ra­bly so far. Hope­fully tomor­row they’ll suc­ceed in a lit­tle more than just fin­ding all the pos­si­ble ways that it won’t work and we’ll have something more to show and tell to the world.

The bio­plas­tic sam­ple tests have been somewhat neglec­ted but we pro­mise we’ll report something back about them. Gui­lherme has retur­ned to the resi­dency and seems to be wor­king on some evil plans for world domi­na­tion for his robots, we hope to have some fol­low up info on that in the next few days aswell.

Meanwhile Tara has been pushing forward her plas­tic bag fabric PCB ideas with a few spe­a­ker cir­cuit tests.

All in all it seems that the daily pro­ject mee­tings have set­tled down to lunch hour. Which fluc­tu­a­tes. And excur­si­ons to the ran­dom local shops are now com­mon atle­ast twice a day. This care­fully devi­sed and hea­vily pon­de­red time mana­ge­ment scheme is easily ena­bling us with the latest cut­ting edge tech­no­logy, which allows us to put together something as exqui­site, bril­li­ant, inno­va­tive, revo­lu­ti­o­nary and so righ­te­ously dedi­ca­ted.
