Today's I'm using the Lenovo Duet as my main computing device and so far I really like it.
The keyboard is a bit small though, so lots of typos :(
Well more than usual

For some reason none of my PIs would get an IP address after the upgrade but maybe there was a change in how static IP address were setup?

Spent some time this weekend cleaning up my various Raspiberry Pis that i have laying around the house and getting them up all upgraded to Debian Buster. Found one Pi that wasn't upgraded/updated at all and took forever to fix up

do people actually get stuff from on time and when they are told they will? Seems like nothing more than a scam

I love my wife but somehow she has the ability as we are getting ready for bed to ask big questions like: "What is the current status of your 401(k)?"

Umm... It's bedtime lets talk about something else

Is there a way to prevent a Chromebook from syncing everything outside of separate accounts?
I have one I use for testing and have Linux on it, etc. One I just want to use for other stuff w/o extensions, Linux copied over, etc.

Happy Monday morning of quarantine. Just another day of work and meetings. I joked last night that I spend 5+ hours on web conferences to a friend and he shuddered and didn't believe me. THen my wife backed me up. So much for "slowing down" now. SEems like things just picked up

This tree is named Hyperion. Standing at a height of 115.61 metres, it is Earth's tallest known living tree.

Hyperion is a coast redwood (sequoia sempervirens) and it lives somewhere in Redwood National Park in California. The exact location is remote, and is being kept secret to avoid any potential ecological damage or vandalism which too many visitors might bring.

On my son's laptop he has worn the "w" key off from all the minecraft it isn't working any more... This makes me laugh a bit

1st time in a long time on a sunday that all of the family is resting. It's nice to have some quiet time to myself

Had to use Cisco Webex for a customer meeting. Now the "app" is pulling in all my Zoom meetings? And my Outlook Calendar? I didn't tell it it could do that

My day yesterday: Confirm things are ready to go today for the remote work we are doing.

Today: Customer doesn't have thins ready when I make time to work with him

It's my wife's birthday which usually means heading out to local place for dinner, giving gifts from local stores, etc. This year its a card and a "Your gifts were deemed non-essential by Amazon so they are on the way slowly" type of day

Happy Monday, hope you all are doing well

On today's quarantine excitement I figured out how to descale my coffee machine.

What wild and crazy thing did you do??

My dad's side of the family has a lot of gaps in it. Like "born in Germany around 1840" and no more data.
Wonder why the data is so different on my two sides of the family.

My mother's side of the family goes all the way back to the 1500's in Germany. That side of the family is well documented for some reason.

My parents found an older family tree as they clean up and safely dropped it off on my porch. Spending this rainy weekend putting it all together.
Fascinating some of things that came up.
