What a journey... I've fought the war of my life over the past year. I'll be updating rapidly the next few weeks. So much has happened and even more has changed. I've grown as a person and my level of focus is probably an order of magnitude better. The Dashcat2 / DashcatAKN (that's the permanent name, now. This machine, in 16-2 hotspare form is DashcatAKN Mark 1.) supercomputer hardware is five years old (in my possession, anyway; it's actually from, like, 2006) as of the end of this month. That's fine. Nothing lasts forever and that's why I built it to be capable of upgrades without changing the cases and racking. I still have a near 500GFLOP 64-bit cluster with 16GB RAM per node that will teach me how to use the eventual upgrade. The biggest mistake I made, post-divorce, was in thinking that any of the prior rules and methods of living space and practical application still applied. I wasted a lot of time trying to force a square peg into a round hole, as the saying goes. The biggest thing was my Ebay operation, from which I fund my projects. It's November and I have only done 1/4 of the business I'm limited to for the year. Inventory and staying on top of moving stock turned out to be an epic fail and it screwed up my financial situation. I'm still "behind" in terms of having to get to the second (of two) paycheck of the month to cover my bills, but I've got that much covered. Well, sometimes we really have to start from a clean slate and I did two weeks ago. I've gotten rid of what's useless, but I still haven't reconfigured for the new method. That's changing this month. The biggest problem I faced is finally gone. I won the lawsuit. Me. No lawyer. Love is engaging and neutralizing your enemy yourself, not hucking money at someone to do it for you. If that fucking cockroach lawyer pops up out of the woodwork again, he knows he'll get stomped and disbarred. It's up to him now. I really hope he has nightmares about me. I've got some CAT5e to run. Later, friends.
