The next Shrimptern (3.0), DK needs a-sommun who can take short videos and post 'em on youtube. She'd like to show a video of the great Water Factory III at work (it'd be like a Wonka movie!), the Broke Student Crystal Lid Levitation in action, stuff like that. Or a super-geeky type who can help her devise a wild-n-crazy records keeping system.

Right now, she's sipping her Bubba Mug of 34 ounces of joe, and contemplating a seed of an idea that was planted while Shrimptern 1.0 was here for the second time: Making a small, rack-end herb garden that hydroponically uses used shrimp tank water (and light). DK just canNOT be bothered, running to the store, for fresh herbs, but she loves to eat them. Too bad they are only in season in the garden a couple months a year.

Oh, by the way... yesterday she served as tractor mechanic consultant, and was successful in fixing a problem. And keeping said tractor owner out of the hospital from the kah-ray-zee "see-I-fixed-it" thing he had done. Took a bit of fast talking to get a stubborn tractor owner to undo his fix job, but she got him to undo it, and fix it properly. Said tractor being some 50 years old, a veritable relic. Being so old, parts are hard to come by, and stuff wears and doesn't fit properly. The problem was a loose engine belt, that could not be tightened any more, and was rubbing on a radiator hose. Tractor owner thought he'd cut a piece of tin can, wrap the radiator hose with it and -- YOU GUESSED IT -- duct tape, and all would be well.

DK took one look and imagined WHEN the belt either broke, or rubbed through the tin can until it caught it high speed and ripped it off, neither situation was in her playbook of "good things to happen" - and so she had to act.

Yes, well, in answer to the private inquiries about shipping shrimp, DK has decided to take a sabbatical until spring, due to planned studies about to begin, which will involve a bit of toxicity so she does not ship anything under unstable or toxic tanks. And she wants to do this last leg of studies to finish her really, really long water-making project. To date, she has methodically looked at cation (Na, K, Ca, Mg) profiles and anion (Cl, SO4, CO3, HCO3) profiles and spent a whole lotta time trying different things, which, thankfully, are nearing completion in a marathon project. But she has one more "leg" of the project that will take her through till spring... y'know, she gets these questions in her head, and just has to try to answer them. She is so stubborn, she is.

On another front, lately she has pondered a great deal the department store experience, applying it to the cashew jars...
You're on your way home on a Saturday afternoon, from whatever it is you do on a Saturday. But there's a problem: you've sprung a hole in your sock. Driving down the main road, you spy the mall. "Aha," you think to yourself, "I'll just drop into Sellzall Department store and gitme a new pair of socks, real quick-like." So you careen into the parking lot, snag a spot, and saunter into the mall, feverishly looking for the Sellzall store entrance, once in the mall. You approach the Sellzall entrance, thinking of a quick purchase, only to face a veritable labyrinthine ordeal, past the shiny, smelly cosmetics counters with those girls standing next to bar stools, make-up brush in hand, past the juniors and sportswear departments, wandering around looking for the stupid, hidden escalator to the upper floor. Finally locating it, you travel altitude then discover you must AGAIN traverse a labyrinthine pathway past housewares, white goods, children's clothes, electronics, bedding, and... eventually... to the department with yur basic underwear and socks...

...beta testing completed today on that project, and if she gets enough joe in her tomorrow, she will start on posts on that, stay tuned...

Yesterday these arrived, which were the last sticking point to getting the beta testing completed:
