D-day 2016

Tomorrow is D-day, as in we are going to eat the ducks. We'll have them with brussel sprouts and apple stuffing with a side of spicy horseradish cranberry relish.

Droid

Got my hands on a free Android tablet. Maybe I will post more? Or maybe I will just watch more Netflix?

back again... again

I was gifted a computer with a failing hard drive from my boss. It's got a decent size touch screen and a core 2 duo processor. It's about 6-7 years old, but it's running linux like a champ. This is what I needed to get back into computer stuff I think, a nice, useable computer I can play around with.

Now, I just need to slap a SSD in here and DL the latest distro.

Big update (not really)

I made the switch to windows 10 today. The biggest difference is that all the icons are way smaller . I am disappointed that the metro interface is gone, I didn't mind
that as much as some people did apparently. We're back to "start" menu again. However I am just all about that windows key. Just tap that thing and type away!

slacker

 I've been feeling like such a slacker lately. I have to study for an exam to get am IT cert, but every time I think about picking up ether book, I start lamenting about how I didn't pass the test on my first try.

Work has been difficult as I am lacking motivation to make any business happen. I've been back there about a year and a half and there is no chance of any kind of pay raise in sight.

Gotta keep my head down and plug away on this material.

Setting up the "office"

Got a room in my house freed up, Shuffling things around now to make sure all the space is conducive to creativity. The space is looking pretty good.

Also something unexpected, the Xbox music app has a feature I didn't even know about. Apparently you can play entire albums like other albums from artists you already have in your collection. Super useful feature. No ads, no shuffling.
