Conway Flooding

Main Street was open and drivable a few hours ago and is now underwater. There are still 4 feet and 5 days before the Waccamaw River crests. It’s bad out there.

Myrtle Dogs

I don’t care about the Cubs as a team but I will admit that when the Myrtle Beach Pelicans became an affiliate the hot dog game was improved radically.

Evil Genius Chronicles Podcast for September 4 2018 – Aching to 14

In this episode, I play a song from the Joe Perry Project; I discuss my 14th anniversary as a podcaster, why podcasting was inevitable and why most of history is accidental; I talk about why your 40th is the last realistic birthday to be a big deal and the aches of getting older; I discuss the terrible American eating habits; I close with a bit of a status update on my DIY Bookscanner project.

Here is the direct MP3 download for the Evil Genius Chronicles podcast, September 4 2018

Remix Culture

At the dawn of #RemixCulture, I thought it was a revolutionary advancement in the world of creativity. Now it feels like being the last person in a human centipede.

Ligature

One side effect of this #DIYBookScanner project is that I am learning waaaay more about OCR, font ligatures and Unicode-> ASCII conversion of these artifacts than I ever intended to know.

Also on:

DIY Bookscanner OCR Test

I took pictures of a few pages with my actual platen but not the full rig, just to test the software. This is a random page as processed by ScanTailor on OS X then run through the Tesseract OCR. Not bad! #DIYBookscanner

DIY Bookscanner Assembly

I put my #DIYBookscanner together. It became obvious my camera was too far from books so I cut smaller pieces for the upright. Glare was an issue so I’m buying the light to add to the setup. Listed as optional in plans, probably mandatory.

DIY Bookscanner Last Mile

I am at the point where I am taking this motley pile of PVC and metal and trying the final assembly of my camera arm for my #DIYBookscanner. Later today I should be able to try my pilot run of scanning a book. Watch the skies!
