Quick one (yes, from April *sigh*) about my frustrations when setting up a new work computer.
Update: 6/8/2016 — Criminy! I let another 6 weeks pass!! I’m putting this thing up now, without any further comment. I actually have another one that I recorded near the end of April; I’m going to try and get that saved and publish it tomorrow. *fingers crossed*
Update: 4/26/2016 — This baby has been in the can for almost a month! I decided at the last minute today to just knock up a draft for it on the mobile WP app while eating lunch! In this case, I do at least remember the topic…the cook-it-yourself food delivery service Blue Apron. (which I have since stopped my subscription on, but I still recommend!)
Seeing as I took a week to get this podcast out, these notes may be a little…vague. *sigh* So, it had been a month since the previous episode, so I talked about going to Duke for the Pitt game, Duke’s general football woes, work going ok so far in the New World Order…what else? Ah, I know I talked about our Pathfinder campaign that we’re about to start; I’m looking forward to hopefully starting that this weekend!
(I found my notes)
Ah…New Year’s resolution-y goodness, yeah, I remember that. And I mentioned the Duke basketball game we were going to (which has since happened, and was way fun!), and the semi-secret project that hasn’t yet moved forward. Ah well. So, a good podcast, go listen!
It’s been a couple of weeks, so there’s plenty to talk about. Charlotte and I had a great time at Duke’s Countdown to Craziness; hopefully a good season is coming up. No further updates on the Chromecast, as I’ve been taking an XBox One with the to Atlanta the past couple of weeks. Destiny (and the Republican debate) are great distractors. It’s been a little stressful, as my boss of the last 15 years accepted a separation package, and is retiring to south Florida. Zoinks! Times, they are a changin’…
Finally, I set up my new Nexus 5X on Project Fi last night; so far, so good! Nice phone, and I look forward to better coverage at home.
I think we might have found a schedule! Wednesdays sound good, so let’s unpack our navel-gazing over why it’s such a good idea. *grin* After that, let’s once again give the “Mad at Dad” podcast props, because the first episode was super enjoyable. I expect to listen to the next episode tomorrow on the way home, and I can’t wait. I also discuss my trials and tribulations with my Moto E, and how close I came to just throwing in the towel and buying a (shiny!) Nexus 5X. Then I found out from the Ting phone support guy that I could flip the “Cellular Data” toggle and get cellular data again…DOH!
Finally, I mention our upcoming weekend trip to Durham for Duke’s “Countdown to Craziness” basketball event, that both Charlotte and I are really looking forward to. I’m sure we’ll have fun stories to recount next week!
It took a couple of weeks, but I’m back…hopefully, we’ll get this thing scheduled properly sooner or later. In this episode, I talk about several podcasts I’ve added recently (Wil Wheaton, Paul Fidalgo, Brian Hogg, Dave Slusher, and Michael Butler represent!), the Duke-Ga Tech football game and our trip to see it in Durham, my wife Charlotte’s birthday, the soggy weather we had this past weekend, and our collective ‘meh’ with the movie “Moon” that we watched on Saturday.
Boy…I sure get out of the habit quick! In this episode, I talk about the weekend of September 12-13th. I made a decision on a new phone (Moto E 2nd gen), which was delivered just in time for me to activate it for the trip. We took my father-in-law to Durham for his 80th birthday present; we toured Duke campus, saw the Sports Hall of Fame there as well as Cameron Indoor Stadium, and went to the home football game! We also had several good meals and a generally awesome time. We then came home on Sunday and drove him to a surprise birthday party with dozens of family and friends. It was a big weekend!
So much for my in-podcast assertion that my podcast reflexes are solid…it’s taken me about 24 hours to get this podcast uploaded after recording it! That being said, at least I’ve got one in the can post-DDOP!
Today, I review the last couple of days of Dragon Con, the trip home, and the Tuesday “day of rest” that I rely on after con to keep myself from falling apart. DC was, as always, great but it’s good to be home! (And still podcasting!)
First day of DragonCon, and I’m awake before noon! Pretty impressive. Last night was much fun, and looking forward to seeing folks at the live Technorama tonight. Another quick one, just so I can get this uploaded while I’m still in the room.
