AZ Residency Day 5 — Mistos de Porco Preto Reprise

Yesterday’s din­ner didn’t go so well. We went to pick up a few doses of “Mis­tos de Por­co Pre­to” (means something like Mix of Dark Pig in English) at this local res­tau­rant whi­ch we had scou­ted on Tues­day as ser­ving pretty well. But we had an unfor­tu­na­te sur­pri­se, they under-ser­ved us half our dosa­ge. So a new quest had been unloc­ked: to retri­e­ve our fair sha­re today or rai­se havoc!

At the lab i had no idea what hap­pe­ned during the mor­ning sin­ce i slept until very late, but right after lun­ch everyo­ne scat­te­red off to han­dle dif­fe­rent things:
— Sér­gio and Fran­ces­co still busy docu­men­ting their ants pro­ject.
— Tara with the plas­tic PCB expe­ri­ments.
— Jor­ge put­ting the finishing tou­ches on his VJ mixer fra­me.
— Móni­ca pushing her wind/fan pro­ject into a first pro­toy­pe.
— I pushed the genhai­ku abit clo­ser to ver­si­on 2.0
— Luis arri­ved to the resi­dency to work on his meal trac­king idea.
— Ricar­do and Fili­pe went on a magic jour­ney to the local “saw­mill” sto­re to get the last parts for their pia­no cock­tail.
— Mau­ri­cio gave us a workshop about tiny solar robots with BEAM cir­cuits.
— And Cata­ri­na hac­king some key­bo­ard inter­fa­ces

So for din­ner we went to reclaim our lost dosa­ge of Mis­tos de Por­co Pre­to and mana­ged to suc­ce­ed in our orde­al! Quest com­ple­te! We also took the won­der­ful oppor­tu­nity to shop some essen­ti­al refresh­ments for tomor­rows farewell party.

Back at the resi­dency we had visi­tors from a local juve­ni­le the­a­ter group, we gave them a quick tour round up of all the stuff we have lying around and the pro­jects peo­ple have been wor­king in. Whi­ch went pretty well, they were all pretty mar­ve­led and exci­ted with all we had going on, asking how they could do their own and spend the rest of their lives doing what we do. Whi­ch made us happy.

The rest of the night was spent atten­ding Mauricio’s workshop and wor­king on some entry for our fast music remix com­po of Vitor Espadinha’s “Relem­brar é Viver”. Results should be avai­la­ble tomor­row.
