Education
  • Hillcrest High School
    Art, 1972 - 1977
    When I started, there was only Art 1 - 3. My art teacher, Mr. Brite (a wonderful person and teacher) persuaded the school board that we needed Art 4 so one other student and I could take it. They agreed, but we had to hold the class before school hours. So, yes, I voluntarily attended an extra hour each day of my senior year! :)
  • Harding University
    Art, 1977 - 1978
    Majored in Art, minored in Music. Attended 1.5 years, but tested-out of a full semester, so I have 2 full years of credit. (Tested-out of college Algebra, but had only taken required General Math 1 and 2. I credit my excellent math teacher for that.)

Story
Introduction
Since I've been posting about cannabis, I thought I'd give an example of what my conditions do to me. This is me after ~36 hours of no sleep. I guarantee if I had cannabis, that would not happen.

Everyone (including me) likes to post pictures of thems
elves happy and nice looking. So I decided to get real, and post a picture of how I really look.
I'm being honest, folks! Narcotics and pharmaceuticals are not helping most of the time (they help some, and I'm glad for that). Cannabis does... if only I could have it all the time.

Will you please help? Let's legalize Cannabis! See: Southwest Missouri Cannabis Restoration and Protection Act


---

Before I became disabled, I majored in art, minored in music, and then taught myself to program (starting with BASIC in the 70's, but really got serious around 1983 when I bought my Commodore 64). Now I'm a computer programmer.

"Taught myself" means studying and practicing. I love to read, and this (technical) stuff (usually) seems easy for me.

More recently I've discovered Propellerhead Reason (music software that is a recording studio on your desktop).

I've also started studying electronics. I got an Arduino, sensors, etc., and I'm having too much fun! :)

I go by aBoogieman because I like to play boogie woogie music (among other genres). I also see some humor in that name.

Well, a Github expert I am not. But you can grab the code and schematics for my latest project here:
https://github.com/…/Raspbe…/tree/Addingi-security_camera.py

This version acts as a Linphone server so I can connect to the camera from remote and see realtime video.

It also detects motion and sends a chat message to a list of SIP addresses, flashes a picture of whomever/whatever triggered the alert, takes a picture and emails it to an email address (if I'm not already logged in and watching).

I also upped my game and added automatic infrared lights. Yes, that's right, he can see in the dark now! smile emoticon What else... surely forgetting something. Oh! ultrasound sensors for determining distance are probably next. (Oops, no plans! Hehe)

I'm excited to get it to this point and have started transferring to a permanent circuit.

I wanted to try some skin-tone and/or porcelain look, so I bought some porcelain powder and some skin-tone dyes. But I wanted to try something that glowed, too. So it did not make sense for it to be just a "normal caucasian"... so... it had to be a monster!

I kinda like him. Do you? :)

Pyramid of Bottled Light Series. Resin, glow-in-the-dark sand, glass bottle and a cork are all it took. And a little ingenuity. ;)

If you're developing for the Raspberry Pi and especially Linphone (or anything using MediaStreamer2), and you get an error for "Couldn't initialize SRTP library", try rebooting your device. A last-resort I'll know to try first the next time I see this particular error (especially from code that previously worked!).

Here is a link to the artist feature that Glow Inc. did about me for their December, 2015 featured artist!

I would post a link to my sites except they are in the story this time! :-)

From now until the end-of-year, get FREE SHIPPING on all orders from my Etsy shop.

Must use the code GOOGLEFREESHIP during checkout to be eligible. I encourage you to share this amongst your friends, too! (Preferably on Google+, but at least I know where it originated, either way.)

Thanks for taking a look!

Posted a new glow-in-the-dark item for sale today. This one is a bit more costly, but it is well worth it. My wife even said these are cool, and she's my biggest critic (after myself, of course)!
