Miscellany 17.7.0?

imageSometimes, I feel like I’m failing this blog.  This blog was supposed to highlight all the awesome new stuff I was learning .. on my job, mostly. 

That is not what I’ve learned from, lately.

Its only been 15 days or so since my last miscellany post.   In those last 15 days, my work has been:

  • Images and CSS and javascript, small changes.
  • “Why did X happen?” .. let me check the source code that we didn’t write .. trace it through 3-4 layers … here’s why that happened.  Your options are A,B,C.
  • How to route network cables neatly (Actually.. this is huge.  My 20yo self wishes he knew this).
  • Lots about door security systems.  I might have covered that in another post.

The rest of life has been interesting –

  • Refining my Rubik’s Cube skills.    I’m considering memorizing the Ortega method.  It brings back some magic.
  • Arranging a Disc Golf outing with some friends.   Researching form, practicing, getting better at it. We have 3 courses to choose from!
  • After way too long off, went out for a run again .. this time in FitKicks.  2 miles.  Maybe not such a good idea, i think i need a size smaller maybe.  Next race in less than 2 weeks!
  • Considering signing up for the triple crown and Derby Half-marathon for 2018.  Because Goals.  Also, a membership to the YMCA.
  • My grandson does just about anything and I melt.
  • Bose QC35 Headset.   Forking expen$ive, but yet…  the best tool for its job?  I was in a loud urban environment, and I could participate on a conference call without any problems.   Connecting to two devices at the same time really works for me (laptop + phone), and .. I find myself no longer dreading phone calls.   I’d rather do a phone call with these on than any other way.  Here’s a negative review for some contrast.
  • Mozza Pi – new place in Anchorage.  Worthy of a visit.  They’re not open for dinner yet, want to get their process honed before they ramp up.

I’m getting pretty excited – past the 50% mark on studying for the AWS Solution Architect Associate exam.   The last course on VPC’s really dialed in some stuff that I was wondering about. 

I don’t know that I’m going to get any time for my personal projects .. not for a while.  I think “exercising my body” has taken over for the summer.   And that’s okay.

Cheers
