Hello all!! We’re back for another Dog Days of Podcasting (my fifth year, in fact!) and I thought I’d start off with a description of my theme for the year. This is a quick one…we’ll start with the real deal tomorrow!Also on:
Here we go again! Back in the car, I start out with an overview of my worst delay driving to ATL in…well, ever. I then describe a couple of things I’ve been geeking out with lately: 1) buying and experimenting with my new Trio Windows 10.1 tablet/mini-laptop (and installing GOG on it for gaming) and 2) adventures in Python UDP programming to control my LIFX bulbs with a CHIP $9 Linux computer. Fun times!

Catching up before starting the 12 Days challenge; this was recorded almost 2 months ago. I was driving back from Atlanta after finally selling my townhouse…lots to think about that day!
Well…once again I crash and burn at the end of the Dog Days! Kreg was nice enough to leave the master feed running so that Charlotte and I could both get a wrap-up episode out, though…thanks, Kreg! I express how much I’ve enjoyed the DDOP this year, I share the new podcast (His and Her Geekery) that Charlotte and I will be starting, and chat a little about Dragon Con and the trip. For those listeners that are only from DDOP, have a great year, and we’ll see you again next August! Or…c’mon over and subscribe! 🙂

Two hours until I’m on vacation…and then it’s DRAGON CON TIME! *grin* I ramble a bit about the first signs of DC in Atlanta every year, talk about trying to get together with some folks at Battle and Brew tomorrow, and describe a little surprise that I just completed for my lovely wife! Talk to you tomorrow!

Five days left…let’s have some DDOP fun! I talk about folks already checking in for Dragon Con today (“Monday is the new Thursday…”), I ramble on for much longer than I intended about my Pokemon walk today, then I talk about food…specifically, onions! I do love an onion on a sandwich; even to the point of an onion sandwich. Tasty! Finally, I talk a bit about sleep…my experience with CPAPs, the healthy sleep formula, my use of nose strips, and my recent purchase of a snore aid device. Talk to you again tomorrow!

Happy Sunday! I’m caught up, and tonight I discuss marriage and how my life has changed with Charlotte. In a good way. A happily amazing good way! Plus, #BonusBeerOfTheMoment….Sierra Nevada Hop Hunter!

DDOP episode 24…which means I’m a day behind again! *sigh* A long day of yard work yesterday got things started in that hectic way that weekends go. I was lying in bed before I realized I hadn’t done a podcast, and unlike Dave Slusher, I just rolled over and fell asleep. 🙂
I talked a bit about the yard work of the past couple of days, and tried to wrap up before the dogs went insane…that didn’t quite work. I hope the ending isn’t *too* jarring as they noticed a squirrel or something outside and decided to defend the Homeland. I’m intending on catching up tonight, so I’ll chat again in a few hours!
