I'll show you a picture of myself if you show one of yours. Deal?

You're looking good Trichy.

Is IB short for International Baccalaureate?

Yep. The kids in the program at my school are in their last 2 years of high school, and are planning to go to university in the UK or the US. I teach second language English (but at university level, including reading novels, plays, etc.), and after school I've started a music program, that's sorta like "Glee". Mostly musical theater style pop songs and such, that the kids choose themselves.

I had a few friends who did IB in the states, they made it sound like it was harder than college in the US. I thought it sounded fun. Glee and musical theater on the other terrify me, I'm a terrible dancer and singer.

Congrats on the weight loss Trichy! Can we get a Subway-Jared pic with your old pants at some point?

I never understood why he didn't just throw those damn pants away...

Took the picture on the right yesterday. The other one is from about four months ago. Boo-yeah.

Great job, trichy. IRC's torture regime is working.

Dude, mad props to you trichy!

Good job!

Very nice Trichy, props to you sir!

I am intrigued, is there a copy up thread somewhere or perhaps someone willing to short-form it for us non-IRCers?

Seems like every time I go in there, they're making him do pushups or dumbbell kegels or something.

Dude, don't give them any ideas...

It's nothing special, irc just does some sort of homoerotic banter that causes trichy's heart rate to go up and burns calories.

Too late.

So when are we gonna go clothes shopping?

Being a boss, chillin' at the park with a beer.

We were at a Chicken and Bluegrass festival, and the park it was at is one of the prettiest places I've been to. I couldn't stop taking pictures of the trees and little caves and waterfalls.

And one from a couple weeks ago when we found Waldo downtown.

Hey, the first time I realized I didn't have to pay the "fat tax" of shopping in big and tall stores, I was quite pleased.

What, the clearance rack always has the fat sizes only. I am like "hey i like that...oh its an XL"

Have I mentioned that I love my (second) job? Cause I do. This is from this weekend. It's me explaining how the beer tasting is going to work, mere moments before I'm bum rushed by 60 people in Game of Thrones garb.

As far as I know that's the only image that I'm in from the weekend. There's some of the much more interestingly dressed con goers here.

In the spirit of LouZiffer, here's a time-lapse of my latest project - a non-profit dev jam where I spent my weekend.

My team was the front table for that camera, I'm the bearded dude on the left.

I come back from the bar and play drunken FTL at 1:48am on Sunday

Holy sh*t, you look like one of those Hydroxycut commercials. I feel like there should be a little asterisked sentence under the right photo that reads "Results Not Typical".

That's an impressive change. Did you document somewhere what you did?

Aww shucks. I like the little cameo moments up front, your hat that keeps jumping on and off of your head, and the neat cake. Looks like good times.

Hey, that's cool! What did you use to make the time lapse?

I'm on a program called Take Shape For Life. I did keep a blog about my progress called Fat Nerd to Slim Nerd.

Its a bit convoluted - one of the other devs is a bit of a hardware hacker, and he put together the rig.

He had a Nikon D100 on a tripod hooked up to a RaspberryPi with a display and a countdown timer that took a shot every minute. He then dumped the images off the card, and somehow imported them/stitched them together/encoded as a video.

He had a second setup with a USB camera and USB wireless, which was supposed to dump to S3 for easy retrieval, but he couldn't get it to connect through the wifi splash page.

Tangle - I made the drunken FTL using 2 oz Overholt rye, some cinnamon simple syrup, and a splash of OJ - times 3 or 4...

I've been dumping all my points into the warrior skill tree lately.

I don't know... More like Jason Bourne than warrior...

Was wondering if you were still alive. Thought the air quality finally did you in or you snuck onto a Chinese rocket and were shooting down Boron ships.

Nice!
