Bad times, Sorry for my disappearance.

Tue Dec 27, 2016 2:11 pm

Has been a very hard month for me. My Mom passed away on the 22nd at 12:42 in the afternoon. I am still dealing with that.

On top of that I have lost my minimal income, and am living off of emergency supplies until I can get a new source of income.

With these things going on I have not spent much time on my RPi's, I have not even 3D printed anything useful for nearly three weeks.

On the nicer note:
Happy Holidays.

My condolences on your loss David, I lost my mother Xmas day 10 years ago (Never really celebrated it since).

Time does heal the pain you are suffering, don't become a Scrooge like me.

So sorry to hear this David. I know such loss is hard to bear.

Try to keep strong. It may seem impossible just now but it can be done. Even if life is never the same again.

My condolences. The death of a family member is always hard. Just bear in mind that you have friends here--even if sometimes a bit contentious ones.

I'm so sorry. I haven't lost a parent yet, but suspect it won't be long.

My condolences to you and your family.

Fingers crossed that fortune will find you better off in the new year.

So sorry to hear that David. I know from personal experience it can be a very hard to deal with.

Hope to see you here again in the not so distant future - your posts have been the catalyst for many interesting discussions on this forum, from which I have learnt much.

All the best, Dave.

Father, mother, one sister (the other is still alive). My wife of 45 years is still alive. The entire generation before is is gone, though. Not surprising, really, my youngest uncle was born in 1922 and died quite young (in 1969). My surviving sister is 70...

Not sure the loss of close family members ever gets any easier.

Wondered why you had vanished, sorry man.

Was thinking about you the other day, came across this blog.

Pete makes the point that Deep Learning stuff will need assembler programmers for optimisation.
I thought well, DavidS has got a job for life then.
Since then I have been trying to learn ARM assembler.

A job and partner is what Aspies need most, everything else is gravy.
Update your CV and start posting it out, start with the big guys in AI/DL/Android etc.

Been where you have a few times, literally down to my last $10, credit card maxed out.
You might not know it yet but you have serious skills, sell them and don't under value them.
Anyone who loves coding at low level like you will be an asset for a company that codes.

Embrace your inner aspie too.
I learn't many years later that when I was corporate the clients loved me for my brutal honesty (a symptom of AS). So much so that I was head hunted twice on client advice.
It was only when I eventually started looking for a partner someone told me I might be AS, till then I just thought everyone else was strange in a non Spock way.
