I still have the patch you made for me. 6th PSC Horn of Africa with the Lion on it. It is spectacular.

Do yoga and go to the gym. They are both good and for different reasons. Also try tracking workouts with a heart rate monitor. I have headphones that keep my pulse rate and also inform me what workout zone I'm in while listening to music. The app on my phone also shows me a graph of the whole work out so I can see how long my heart rate was in different zones.

I enjoy doing SfM with imagery.  I love the experience of seeing the real world in 3D and being able to manipulate it.  The industry is growing fast and it is a great way to make 3D content for your purposes.  I've been writing a C++ application off and on for about a year that implements some of my favorite open source solutions.  Namely, Theia and OpenMVS.  Right now it is for work, but I am hoping one day I can release a portion of the user interface as Freeware and then anyone with a camera can create 3D content for game engines, 3d printing, or whatever.


Here is a link to some great resources: http://www.cs.cornel...rojects/bigsfm/


And here is a few old videos I made using animation tools to rotate the model along it's Z-axis in Blender:


This was captured at a sculpture park in St. Louis with my Samsung Galaxy s7


This was captured from YouTube video uploaded.  The user recorded their neighborhood with a DJI Phantom 3.



I hope maybe this topic creates a place where people can discuss and share ideas around 3D modeling from photography and video.  Also known as Photogrammetry.

Her: ***clicks Play button on Hulu and walks back to the couch***

Me:  "You left the mouse finger over top of the UI controls." (Leaves buttons showing on full screen)

Her:  ***moves mouse three inches to the right, just perfectly over the slider and then stares at the screen angrily as the controls do not fade***

Me:  "It's still on the slider. You have to move the cursor off of all the control panels for it to fade."

Her: "I KNOW! You don't have to be so condescending."

Windows is the shit and has been a huge contributor to computing, internet and nerd-dom throughout the decades.  If you weren't running MSDOS or win3.11/nt back in the day, then you were probably old and doing something school or work related with a PC.

getting a CompTIA Network Plus book helped me to learn about OSI model, and many different protocols and common ports. Most of which i learned through experience, but was nice to have a book verify that i thought i knew.

I think Network+ is probably the most complete course covering networking for someone starting out fresh.  I never actually took Network+ exam, but got a course book to make sure i understood it so i would be adequately prepared for security+ which I certified in 2011.  

Books are good to reference and get an idea, but there is no substitue for hands on experience.  the best thing i did 10 years ago was getting a job at the local college helpdesk, and then learned as much as i could from the network administrator for the school.  you can teach yourself a lot, but its better to have several systems and network hardware to work on.

also, there are a lot of technical jobs you can find in the military.
