final wunibar post

I just walked in here, meeting Eva to celebrate her thesis submission (after 8 years!).

Outsider status has often been an advantage when making the kind of anthropological observations that wunibar is rightly famous for. In the best wunibar-related posts, I am the God object in a spaghetti with meatballs, black-rye sandwich with herring.

However, I recognise very little of wunibar today, and after reading Dostoyevsky's 'Notes from the underground' this past week (the original wunibar?), I have to concede I'll never hit those contemptuous heights -- and booze prices make it more difficult to hit these contemptuous lows:

"I drowned my sorrows in great bumpers of claret and sherry. I was so unused to it that I got drunk very quickly, and my anger increased with my intoxication. Suddenly I wanted to be outrageously rude to every one of them on, and then go. To find the right moment and show them who I was: make them say, 'He may be ridiculous, but he's damned clever ...' and ... and ... in short, to hell with them!" (Wunibar, 1864, p. 88)

velocity analysis

there seems to be quite a stable 4--5 sample delay with the velocity
recordings on the actuator. figure out a way of getting a velocity K
for that. (like in that admittance paper. this will get us our
stability mass criteria)

Calming yellow

This building houses Headspace Illawarra, an organisation that runs, among other things, workshops for teenagers dealing with anxiety. Nothing anxiety inducing about that!
