Evil geniuses and world domination are 2 of our goals... we also like Dr Who

I know I’m probably too old… but

I really like this song  — Be aware there are some swears in this content.

It’s a great song.

Now some may say “Hey – Mike …  Aren’t you a little old for this sort of angsty shouty stuff”. And you’d probably be right.  Personally I think I have a good mix between the shouty and cool.  I’ve recently started getting into cool jazz – I got Time Out and I have even tried some John Coltrane – some of it’s cool,  but I just don’t get some of it.

Anyway I sat here at the laptop, having just fixed the FilmFixer script, and thought “I’ll see what’s cookin’ in the digital amazon music store”.  I racked my brains trying to remember pierce the veil – All i could remember was that it was a bank job music video.  Eventually I found the video and had a look at amazon to see what deals they had.

I dug around and found The war of the worlds – the original 1938 broadcast staring Orson Welles for £0.99, and I eventually found the album that featured King for a day.

The MP3 Album is  £7.49 – or I can buy the CD – which has a free mp3 version of the album for £4.99 – which I would have straight away.  Even with the packaging and postage – that would come to £6.48 – still cheaper than buying the MP3 album.

Go looking for Pierce the Veil in the Amazon CD store, and you can buy the album for £8.60

Find the same album in the MP3 music store, and you can buy the CD for £4.99

Orders over £10 get free delivery, so by adding something else i needed, I was able to buy the album for £4.99.  I decided that, as I have much more music these days, that I’d get a larger SD card for my phone, as the 8GB I have at the moment is full, and I hardly have any music on it at the moment.
And the Auto rip was available right away 🙂

 

Charity event at work

At my day job they’re holding a summer fete featuring “guess the manager” – cake stalls and all sorts of cool events.  So for lunch I’m having a burger!

Snail Tales – Building an Animatic on Azure

no comment

In the previous post I talked about setting up Jenkins – I have also been able to apply the same instructions to an Azure hosted linux sever.

The instructions are identical – except that the ports need to be connected

Configure ports for Jenkins

Configure ports for Jenkins

Using the endpoint configuration I was able to map the 8080 to port 80.  I needed to set up the security so that anonymous users could see the job status but would be unable to run or add jobs.
I create a user and set up the security like this :

I’m going to start this blog post by saying : I’m not an animator.  I know nothing about animation.  Well that’s not strictly true – I did learn something about animation from this tutorial video :

New Mug

Rach got a sports direct mug… Here is is on my desk full of vending machine coffee. It holds 3 vending machine cups, whereas the aperture science mug next to it only holds 2 vending machine mugs.  My little jazz Lego guy is in awe of the scale of this coffee!
