Hey Elon, please send me a Starlink system and sponsor me so I can just disappear into the bush with my computer!


Chapter 1 – Meet Jezzy Meet Jezebel, my newest project. She is a 1982 Goldwing GL 1100 Aspencade. I had been looking for a Goldwing on both Kijiji and Facebook marketplace when I came across the ad for this one. There was something about the way she looked so lonely in the photos posted along with the ad… then there was the price of $800, which made her the cheapest GL 1100 in my Province. What could go wrong? I sent many messages back and forth with the seller, Chris and he answered the questions

REZZ – Someone Else

the lyrics say it all [Verse]I wake up in the bed you madeThe one where you’re supposed to lay with meI smell you on the pillowcaseBut don’t see your face, and that’s okay with meI never thought I’d see the day (See the day)I’d see you as somebody I could hateI guess that’s just the price I payFor the blood-red flags that I walked past every day [Chorus]Who are you when I’m not looking?You’re like an angel sent from hellDespite those eyes that hooked meWhen I’m not looking, you are someone else [Drop]Someone elseSomeone— [Chorus]Who are you when I’m not looking?I doubt you even

Episode 11 – Not Dead – A much more cheerful, forward looking podcast  *New* The other day, I posted a really awful piece of audio.. I was feeling really down and for whatever reason, I decided to record myself and post it as a podcast. Not a great idea, but I am going to leave it where it is. It helped to me reflect on my vision – for this podcast. Positivity first. When I started this podcast, I was inspired… I had some pretty great focus, huge ideas, some well-laid plans, and one massively

A happiness challenge to myself

When was the last time I was truly happy for more than a few hours, maybe a few days? I think that it has been many years, and I have been trying to figure out the things that at one time gave me great joy… this is not an easy thing to analyze. In the middle, of course there were many ‘moments’ of great joy, triumph and even pure elation. I can only speak for me, but I suspect this is more the norm than the exception. Explore my thoughts with me… if you dare

I did a thing

It is the end of an era in the Gutty home. I have sold my very faithful HP Z820 beast of a workstation which I have been using as my day to day everything computer for the past 5 years. It had almost everything a power-user could want in a machine.. almost. Weighing in at almost 60 lbs. as mine was configured, and with whopping dimensions of 17.5 x 8.0 x 20.7 in without monitors! The price one used to pay for performance was fourfold 1. Price 2. mass and size 3. energy consumption, and

Smart Business cards from

A few months ago – we did an experiment where we ordered blank NFC cards from Amazon, printed some labels & attached them and then programmed them with some specialized software. It was very cool and reasonably economical… sadly, the solution had a very short lifespan. The ink would smudge quickly, the process itself was cumbersome and the printers & software to print the actual cards can go into the ten’s of thousands of dollars. After our mostly failed experiment, we did some shopping around and found these little beauties! Smart business cards from

Phantom 5? DJI Event – September 8.

Update: This event was for the OSMO 5, but the DJ Mavic Pro 3 has since been released and it IS PRO AND it is $$$$ crazy expensive! Here is a little capture I received a mysterious email from DJI about 40 minutes ago with this photo and a link to “learn more”… sure, sure. The general consensus is that it is not for a Phantom 5 release at all, but rather for OSMO Mobile 5. What do you think? I am putting my money on the Phantom 5 series drones this time and, for
