New day. Yeah! Well okay, just a day. So Have a day!

Just watch the movie spotlight. Good movie. Well acted and well written. Adds the right amount of drama. It is a drama. So two thumbs up. I wonder if my mother has seen it. She is a reformed Catholic, after all.

I'm writing to you. To practice typing on my old keyboard. It is the Kinesis advantage keyboard. It takes some time to relearn the key layout.

Today's work is about cleaning up configs in the monitoring tool. And using CLI skills and bash shortcuts. Also looking for a new Unix box to connect to the network to use as a troubleshooting box.

In 4 days, I will have been working from home for one year. I feel like I have lost a whole year of my life. What a strange time we all live in today. What will the future bring? Lord only knows.

This stupid game helped me through the dark day. A video game, for real. Destiny

July was the last time I blogged. Wow! Not much is happening just sitting around eating and sleeping. I would love some snow that would be a nice change. But first, let stock up with some food.... Got a new PC a small laptop with great battery life. With the idea of starting back up with photography. Let hope it happens. I'll publish the photos here and maybe one other site.

Thanks

Time to check out starts the sky. Today's view of comet C/2020 F3 (NEOWISE) was cool. C/2020 F3 I think I'll try and get a photo of it tomorrow, that's if the sky is clear. In Seattle the is a crapshoot. theskylive.com

It's been six weeks in isolation or as the governer says “stay at home”. I'm feeling okay most days. I've had some trouble sleep on a few nights. The “thinking what could happen” thoughts that my brain does to me. Food is no problem, I'm trying not to eat too much and trying to hoard anything. Hoping that I don't regret not hoarding. My piano is getting much better, practicing more than normal. Been doing more musical things with all my instruments and also bought more hardware,“why”, “because”. I've also started teaching myself Blender and ZBrush. Overall I like this time that been forced on me and don't look forward to the return of normal.

I managed to recreate this from an old tutorial.

Mood – Happy

Sunday, Sunday, Sunday. It's Sunday, and I'm just fine. The weekend was nice. I reloaded the Windows workstation. Installed the Wacom Cintiq and the 3D mouse. Now I have to get used to using these new devices, which will be fun and frustrating at the same time. The loaded the new version of my 3D applications. All said and done, it was a good day. The workstation was having issues and not running very well. The rebuild of the OS and application fixed all the problems I was having.

Download the NY Times data from GitHub and started playing with the data. First tried power BI. Next, I'll try R studio and maybe Splunk later this week.

I also found time to practice the piano. wheeh.

Mood – good.

Well, I knew I wouldn't write every day but that just me. Works been interesting. You would think the days would drag on but they are going by quickly. If it wasn't for the fear and uncertainty I might be enjoying this time working from home.

Mood – good.
