Not too bad despite how I woke up

Ugh. Every time you think you've had a bad day, you have a worse one. I had a very uncomfortable early morning and was really late getting out of the house. Good thing I was only driving to the lab. I had a surprisingly productive day. My plan was to work on the driver I've been researching to see how much of it I could get done in a day. (Not working sloppily, anyway.) I ended up getting it to compile with all of the features I think it needs - it could use some improvement, and I have no idea whether it works, but if I had the device to connect it to and wrote up the configuration file properly, I think it would do what it needs to do. I also don't have our actual version of one of the libraries I used - I'm using a version that I downloaded and compiled myself, so it took some Makefile fiddling and permission granting before I could make it work. I'll have to get rid of that to have a proper driver. Still, the technologies I was merging were surprisingly simple to use. I might even bother to eliminate some magic numbers.

Only about half an hour of raw footage left to pull from, and then it's time to edit down what I have a bit further - speed up some parts that don't need to run at normal speed, maybe trim out additional parts that I left in just because they were short and came between two scenes that I was going to have in the video anyway. It's over 40 minutes as it is, and I might still put in some scenes from the final boss fights. There's one really long scene that I know I need to edit heavily, though, and another short one that I need to add.

Yes, I'm THAT Nidoking. Sometimes I write fanfiction... often I waste all my time playing video games and watching anime. But it's not a waste if I enjoy it, right? I can quote from a movie, video game, anime series, or British comedy apropos of just about any situation, and one of my main goals in life is to entertain people. (The other big one is amassing as much anime and manga as I can... see below for a progress report.) That's me in a nutshell. ("Help! I'm trapped in a nutshell! What a bloody great nutshell this is!")
