Subject: FW: Wearable Depth-Sensing Projection System | Product Design and Development

Projected digital hardware that is accessible to human manipulation is something that has been under development for the past 20 years or so. It looks like a lot of progress has been made. Very interesting.

Zero tolerence anyone?

Pedantry and mastery are opposite attitudes toward rules.  To apply a rule to the letter, rigidly, unquestioningly, in cases where it fits and in cases where it does not fit, is pedantry … To apply a rule with natural ease, with judgment, noticing the cases where it fits, and without ever letting the words of the rule obscure the purpose of the action or the opportunities of the situation, is mastery. -George Polya, mathematician (1887-1985)

I have apparently survived the initial chemo session without nausea.  I hope, it will continue.  Session #2 is coming up on the 20th.

I still have urinary problems associated with some of the procedures done on me related to my cancer.  I will survive.

The “Mange Effect” is appearing.  Last week I noted that the expression “tearing one’s hair out” is now literal as well as figurative.  J  I expect the process to accelerate over the coming week.  I don’t plan on doing anything about it other than observing the process.  In any case I do have my Frederick’s of Hollywood wig at the ready.  I’m told that it is de rigueur to wear a wig if one loses their hair due to chemo.  Would I be so bold as to go against tradition?

Eating well.  Hugs to all!

An interesting read.

Is your local university’s engineering department partaking in this?  If not, why not.

Health Update!

I woke up on the right side of the grass today.  A very good start!

It is now about 10 days after my initial chemo session.  SO FAR!  I have not been bothered by nausea, tho I did let myself get constipated, another side effect of the chemo.  I go in for a set of blood work on the 12th.  I should have some sort of answer before or at my next chemo session roughly on the 20th.

A good night’s sleep is something I dream about the few hours I actually do sleep.

Getting out and about is difficult, but this will improve.

Oh yes, I changed urologists.  I don’t like being ignored.

Onward!  I ain’t going quietly!

Yup!
