Welcome to my Nightmare

Filed under
Just talk

a flash of light, I see a wing
I think it's a bird, but he doesn't sing
in his mouth an engagement ring
lines of truth and lies blurring

another flash I think I see
drips of blood, he cackles at me
flaps of wings all over the tree
crashing waves come up from the sea

thunder explodes they all take flight
no one can see the carnage at night
my eyes adjust but not enough light
I can't see my life try as I might

lightning bolt, shredded white dress
this must be a nightmare me in bareness
I think of lost love as memories regress
sudden loud noise my heart oppress

sharp pain I feel across my face
more blood and tears all over the place
I fall to the floor crumpled in disgrace
in the wind black feathers and lace

fast as I run I can not escape
the beast gains intending to rape
focus my eyes it begins to reshape
silhouette of man, my chest agape

Next I see my heart on the floor
Silhouette turns, rain starts to downpour
You think it'd be him, but it's me to abhor
My blood drains off towards the shore

the greatest gift my love he forsake
leaving my heart with nothing but ache
darkness and loss and confusion make
this nightmare of pain I can not awake

Quadcopter drone packs first all-Linux APM autopilot

Erle Robotics launched a ROS-enabled, open source “Erle-brain” autopilot that runs APM directly on Linux. The device also powers an “Erle-copter” drone. Over the last year, Spanish firm Erle Robotics S.L. has been working with 3DRobotics to develop an open source BeaglePilot autopilot for drones that can run Linux on 3DR’s popular, Arduino-based APM (ArduPilot Mega) platform. The APM Linux port was developed by both companies, as well as several academic institutions. The BeagleBone-based “Erle-brain” autopilot is built into the $490-and-up Erle-copter quadcopter.

Seven Tips To Get The Most From Your New Android Smartphone

With applications able to run in the background and sync as they see fit, Android can rapidly eat through your cellular data allowance if you are not careful. While it’s fine to let the data run free on wi-fi, you’ll want to restrict your data usage when out and about. Short of switching off mobile data (which defeats the purpose of a smartphone), look under the options in the Data Usage part of the settings. Here you’ll find my wallet’s favourite Android setting of ‘restrict background data’. Now when using cellular data, apps will only pull down data when they are in the foreground and you can see them doing so. If a smartphone is all about being in control, this is the option that gives you confidence. Read more
