Bit of Everything!

Hey Everyone!

Back on track a little bit today. Things are a bit more ‘normal’ you could say.

I got to get my hands a bit dirty today with some of our hardware in the server room. We are making room for a new setup to allow a mirrored set of servers running virtual servers. We are also making room for a new cloud backup, and a high availability array, to store over 9 terabytes of data. That was sort of fun and scary all at once. We were doing all that in a live environment. If anything was to get unplugged it would could have taken down a server that was currently in use, and mess some stuff up.

We had some left over cookout food from yesterday. That made for a nice lunch again today. I have also been binge watching Dr. Who season 5-11 which is only on Netflix in Europe, I believe. I have a new web browser that I am using. It is called Opera and it has a built in VPN or virtual private network, which makes it near impossible to trace back your location. Since I have mine on Netflix thinks I’m currently in Sweden. Its really cool actually.

I have a Masonic practice scheduled for tonight at 7 pm. We are going to cover the 2nd degree a bit since next week we have to preform one on our newest member. We shouldn’t be too long tonight since we should have most of it down pretty well.

That is all that is going on today! I hope you all have a great Wednesday and I’ll see you again tomorrow! 😀 😀



Rambling On And On!

Hey Everyone!

My finger is a bit better today. I don’t have it shipping taped up with a paper towel haha.

Work today have been pretty busy. I haven’t had a on of time to think of something to post about. I had to fix a linking issues between three Excel documents, connect our new RF Gun to the network and be able to lock it down, and help our head sales guy use his OneDrive for the first time.

It is quite a bit of time for each, and after lunch I have to meet with a girl in Purchasing to work on her macro enabled Excel sheet. It is a sheet that I made and it is only not working on her PC from a certain person. I have walked with it through all the steps multiple time and haven’t found anything to be wrong with the way it is being sent. That leads me to believe that it is something missing from her PC. Again it isn’t straight forward because it is happening only with this one other person, and not everyone else. I don’t know it has been boggling my mind for weeks now. With any luck I can get it up and running for her again.

Our company hands out Turkeys each year as a little gift. Today is that day! They go out and buy like 300 Turkeys for each person to have one. I usually give mine to my wife’s family so they don’t have to buy one. I usually help eat my dad’s since we both work at the same place and celebrate the same holidays together haha. It is a really weird thing to do but pretty neat too.

This weekend we are having the rest of my wife’s family come down and celebrate Christmas with us and I keep forgetting that I have a four day weekend coming up. I’m super excited about that.

All of that being said I won’t be posting until Wednesday of next week, well after tomorrow. I also cover a co-worker that next Thursday and Friday so I may or may not post then either. It is up in the air. I’ll try. But if I can’t I’ll be rolling into the New Year! Woooo.

I’ll see you all again tomorrow, hopefully for a true ‘Coffee Talk’. See ya then! 😀

This & That

Hey Everyone!

I woke up with a very nice sore throat today, that is less than ideal. :/ I’ll be trying my best to not get sick, or get anyone in my house sick as well. That will be tough.

Tonight will be the last stated Masonic meeting of the calendar year. They are serving ham loaf, which sounds awful but is really good haha. We are electing officers tonight for the next Masonic year. I am debating on whether or not I’ll be going, since I don’t feel so great. I won’t be in an elected position, but will will be moving from one chair to another.

I have started working with Amazon’s Mechanical Turk program. I am skeptical and don’t think it will be what I am looking for but who knows, I’ll give it a shot. It seems like to start it is just really simple tasks for a single penny. If that is the case I can make like under $100 a month, which won’t really be worth it. If I can get some better tasks after I get started maybe it will be better.

I have also started watching American Horror Story on Netflix. It is one of those shows that will take a while to watch. You really have to be invested. It is also still currently being made so I won’t have every season available on Netflix. When it comes down to it will be able to watch close to all of the seasons then have to wait for the next ones to hopefully be put on. Oh, and try not to forget what has happened haha. The best news coming from Netflix is that the next season of Black Mirror will be released on the 29th of this month! Yes, yes, yes! I cannot wait to watch them all. If you haven’t seen it yet go watch it. One of my favorites. 😀

That is about it for me on this boring Wednesday. I hope to see you all again tomorrow! 😀 😀
