May 15, 20: Another Painful Day, Holybread Dead?, More Garage Putzing, and Games

in #sportstalk5 months ago


Up at six again today, but an hour short since I went to bed late. Did the usual morning routine and checked that the crypto markets hadn’t made any significant moves. Bitcoin still pulling back slightly, and with a golden cross imminent, I think I might just take the STEEM price as it is and hope for a pump.

My knee was hurting again, but at least not as bad as the day before, but that means two days of not getting out. 😭 I never would have thought that going for a walk would be that important to me, but I miss it when I can’t go, and I hate not having some nifty pics.

I did a few more hours of messing about in the garage, mostly stripping wire. I tackled the super thin stuff that I pulled out of some computers and old phone lines.

I’d been putting them off, ‘cause they suck! All the work and none of the payoff...even so, every bit helps said the woman as she pissed into the sea.

Nice little pile of the bare bright and some more brass to throw into a brass bar:


Despite having won a victory over the coaxial cable, turns out that the core conductor is copper plated aluminum. 😭😡


Seems like I might have enough of this stuff to make a separate bar just of that... I really don’t know, though, whether that will be worth it.

If I were to purchase a proper furnace with temperature controls, I might be able to get in between their melting points and get them mostly apart that way, but again, I’m uncertain about doing that or investing that much in a furnace (trying to make one myself instead 😁).

@wenchebakken’s Fitbit screen has gone all wonky, so we’ve been looking into some other ones (mine broke within a year as well 😡). Kinda’ like the Apple Watch, but having to recharge every day and having the face on all the time seems lame.

In the evening I did some laps around the house to get to my ten thousand steps goal, but the Fitbit was acting up all day and didn’t register it as an exercise. 😟

We had homemade pizza for dinner and watched Rat Race, which we’d both seen before. It’s definitely a one and a half eyes open movie. Not quality cinema, but fun nonetheless.

Hooray! Still no robberies in my dCity. Income is flowing in daily, but I’m itching to get it moving faster.


Well, hmmm 🤔. I got all my Holybread tasks done! 🤩 But then there was announcement over on Discord that the game is being abandoned.


Would have been nice to know that it was nothing more than a “hobby project” before I invested so much time in it. Hopefully someone else will pick up the mantle.


Holding at about the same ranking. 👍



My Splinterlands quest was Dragon splinter today. I didn’t play too much, cause I got on a nice win streak and didn’t want to blow it.



I finished the quest in Gold I with a potion. Still not getting any more legendaries, but it seems to like to hand out banshees lately. I actually got quite a few cards, which was nice:

Sorry to hear about HolyBread. That just stinks a little bit. I can say that from my own experience, most projects require a whole lot more time and energy than realized. The more popular, the more work.

Going out for a walk has never been more important to me. I guess we always want what we cannot have. Right. Well, plus, it feels pretty good. I have been upping my game and it is getting hard to keep up with myself!

Homemade pizza sounds perfect, I ended up with homemade beef pot pie. It was pretty good, but, now I need to walk it off today.

Oh? Too late you say? Pfft! :)

Beef pot pie sounds super yummy 😋
