I automated everything as best I could but now that I have to go page-by-page and line them up, I got bored. But I got this far at least:

I go from obsession to obsession. Lately it’s been the Drakon visual programming language. I spent all day Saturday going through the laborious [and fun for me] process of figuring out how to turn a Russian-only book on Algorithms written by this awesome 78 yr old Russian Space Engineer into English. I _could_ struggle through it in Russian but also, I don’t care for reading.

But I’ll watch a video.

So, from Russian PDF –> long chain of splitting, translating, converting from format to format, text to speech (including getting my computer to speak Russian for an hour or two), and ending up with TWO split up “books in video format” that unfortunately have mismatched page numbers.

I automated everything as best I could but now that I have to go page-by-page and line them up, I got bored. But I got this far at least:

and when I get the patience to line up the other pages, I’ll have a 520 page Russian/English both-ears text that plays on youtube.

Will I finish? I dunno. I’m suddenly interested in being linked to Waddle Dee of the Kirby Universe by one of my fans/followers/friends on Vine when he made that little tribute, so the other 500 pages of the now dual-language spoken/videofied book will likely wait for a bit for me to finish.
