Mission 2008 (13 Dec 2008 at 10:58)
Mission: Get done and post all the 70–99% complete projects I've got piled up. There are preposterously many. There are of course many more still in the -20–69% range, but that is normal for me. I'm talkin' about the ones that I've poured dozens of hours into and are circled or boxed in multiple different colors and dash styles on my To-Do list and I'm just not pulling the trigger for some weird reason.

Specifically:

Secret Project H
Secret Project GV
Secret Project SV
Secret Project CT
His Doctoral Effort (Annotated Edition)
Brainpic
CS Notes, final episode
The 7evenths MP3s
Secret Project SRT
Tapes
I finished Pac Tom level 1. Nothing happened, of course, but I have all of this incredibly detailed data now that I am trying to arrange in visually and cartographically appealing ways, and I'm obsessing about computational problems like correctly parsing XML documents and accurately computing great circle distances between lat/lon/elev points to millimeter accuracy or how to machinely learn a function of various run episode parameters (distance, "tags" (e.g. rain, hungry, Vhilly, hangover)) that determines my running performance. And then I'm thinkin', oh I've got a new camera coming soon so the photograph of this-or-that I can take with even more pointlessly high resolution, etc. I need to quit some of that shit and post my findings, because I'm already well into Level 2 activity now.


Realistically I can't hope to finish these all by the end of the year, but I can at least intend to start no new projects until I've knocked most of these off the list. And this is what I intend.

I can't figure out which one of these is the inevitable full-length album that's going to blow everyone away, help me out here.

How come you don't list world domination? Or is that default on every to-do list so it's pointless to list? (I have my own plans for world domination at least, but it requires some work.)

Adhesion: That's "Pac Tom Level 1".
fetjuel: Thank you for restoring balance.
jonas: World domination is less than 70% complete, sad to say. (I pretty much only dominate my bedroom.)

New album-a-day website is less than 70% done? Argh!!! (The excessive exclamation marks are for extra argh.)

Also, when are you gonna do your second AAD for 2008? Do you have a weekend set aside yet?

Bold means, "totally awesome" or just close to being finished?

Bold means awesome or I spent dozens of hours on it, or both.

S/G: New AAD site is probably about 50%. It deserves higher priority than I apparently give it. :(

Looks like someone's getting to one of your super secret projects before you...

Congratulations for finishing pac tom level 1. I think you deserve another of those green "achievement unlocked" banners, even if it's a bit late. Also, as your USB port now works, how about publishing some of those diagrams and whatnots about your performance?

Thanks for keeping me honest, jonas. Indeed I am working on it and it's coming soon! =)

In the meantime I have been working on level 2, for example today...
