The quote is from Jesse Livermore, who I discovered by way of "Reminiscences of a Stock Operator," the oft-recommended book based on his life. He apparently liked to relax in Florida when he wasn't trading. The concept behind the quote refutes the advice: "Quit while you're ahead." #stockmarket #WallStreet #win #winning #advice #quotes #inspiration #business #profit #system #formula #success #speedboat #plan #invest #fun #strategy #content #market #instagram #stocks #trade #markets #marketing #entrepreneur #freemarket #capitalism

How to combine two large "MTS" video files (Sony AVCHD format) in Linux, using ffmpeg. I plan to use my camera's MP4 option in the future, but I may need this at some point in the future:

cat 00001.MTS 00002.MTS > Part2.MTS
ffmpeg -i Part2.MTS -async 1 -r 24 Part2.webm

The resulting .webm file is much smaller, but the same resolution. So a 3Gig MTS file might shink to a more manageable 30MB webm.

I just ordered this “Sharkk Bluetooth Boombox” from Overstock. Yesterday at the pool, I saw a small Bose Bluetooth speaker that had a nice sound for its size. So last night I researched several portable speaker options. For example, I looked at the Sound Blaster Roar, but thought that it would ...

LYRICS:
I got that online hustle.
All American, David O. Russell.
Brain, I work that muscle.
Sprout, you know that Brussell.
Imma bring the fight all day and night,
I’m Hungry for the tussle.
(What?)

I’m on the road to success.
Everyday, don’t even have to get dressed.
I work from home, I’m...I’m never stressed.
Logging into wordpress,
Yes, I’m obsessed.

I’m so fine, got talent coming out my spine.
I’m on time, got a meeting with my mastermind.
I’m number one on Google, nobody can off me.
I’m smoother than the butter in my bulletproof coffee.

[HASHTAG HUSTLE CHORUS]

My copy’s mad tight, so you know it’s magnetic.
I check my paypal account, so I know that you read it.
I code my website myself, so it’s got that aesthetic.
Download my podcast, so I know that I said it.

I’m building habits and I can’t stop.
These blog posts is my cash crop.
Search rankings, got top spot.
Just Skype me and we’ll talk shop.

(breathe)

If ya need another minute to look.
I’ll save you some time just download my ebook

-----

My hustle’s superbad. I’m McLovin’ it.
I call an Uber ride, some productive shit.
Everything I can, you know I’m crushing it.
I’ll write a thousand words and then I hit submit.

You know I ain’t got nothing to prove,
I got nothing to lose besides traffic and some pageviews.
I got stacks on stacks of lifehacks,
pay quarterly tax, ain’t no time to relax, I gotta...

[HASHTAG HUSTLE CHORUS]

When I bring my laptop on the plane…
that’s a write off.
When I buy another stupid domain…
that’s a write off.
When gas up my online gravy train...
that’s write off.
Even though you know my startup is lean…
it’s still a write off.

------

Ugh, you’re so dramatic.
Yea, my life’s nomadic.
And I know just what you were thinking and you’re wishing that you had it.

No, my site ain’t static.
Yea, it’s automatic.
I need my hustle fix, cause I’m a hustle addict.

My Four Hour Body don’t sleep.
I’m unique and I only work Four Hour Work Week.

Finally installed Android Lollipop, because I want to try the screen recording feature! The upgrade wasn't as bad as other upgrades, most of my settings were preserved this time. BUT my BLU Studio X Plus phone wouldn't boot after the upgrade--had to remove the battery, then everything was fine. Without a removable battery, I'd have a bricked phone.

First screen recording app that I tried crashed. Might just be a CPU limitation.
