Nothing to See Here

with one comment

I decided to take the day off and head to the range. Last night consisted of loading ammo for the trip instead of writing posts.

What can I say? You get what you pay for.

I was out late at the bar with my anarchist friends last night avoiding political nonsense. Needless to say, I didn’t get any posts written.

However, I will say one thing about last night’s election. You can’t blame me, I didn’t vote.

I spent last night loading ammunition and prepping for an early morning range drip (seriously, nobody is at the range at 8:00 in the morning, try it) instead of writing posts.

This Lack of Blogging is Brought to You By Deus Ex: Mankind Divided

without comments

The new Deus Ex game came out and I decided to play that last night instead of blogging.

I’m guessing you’re curious how the game is. So far the gameplay has been Deus Ex: Human Revolution plus more, which is a winning formula in my book. I haven’t gotten very far in the game yet so I can’t tell you how the story is but so far it’s been decent.

I spent last night preparing for the (ISC)2 CryptoParty presentation I’m doing today instead of writing posts.

I spent my blogging time last night working on backend nonsense. So there are a lot of cool new things that you won’t even notice.

I’ve spent the last two days on a trip for work. I ended up on the red eye flight back home so I didn’t have the energy to get anything posted for today. To entertain yourselves I’ll leave you with a son off of Perturbator’s new album (not everything I listen to is metal, I also enjoy retro-style electronic music):

I’ll Be Off For A Few Days

with 2 comments

Grandma Burg passed away at 8:45 on Christmas Day. She made it 90 years on this rock and although it is certainly hard on those of us still cruising on this spaceship her final years weren’t easy ones and it’s comforting knowing her suffering is over. And a more appropriate day than Christmas could not be had for a person as dedicated to Christ as herself.

In her 90 years she managed to raise five kids and keep my grandfather in line (no easy feat). Not only that but she managed those accomplishments while maintaining the most positive attitude I’ve every witnessed. She was a great person and this spaceship is diminished by her loss.

I’ll be away from this blog for a few days. Between the funeral and other matters that must be attended to my focus will be very much elsewhere.

Sick Leave

I’m sick as hell and don’t feel like writing anything. See you again when I get better.

I Void Warranties Upon Request

without comments

No new content again? I’m afraid so. Why? Because I was voiding a warranty:

i-void-warranties

Somebody needed the power button in their iPhone 4S replaced and figured I was the man for the job. They were right. I replaced the button and the phone powered up again. Of course it doesn’t boot up, but that part wasn’t my fault as it wasn’t actually booting up beforehand (and since the power button stayed in the stuck down position the thinking was that it was just turning off, due to the power button being held in, immediately after boot).

I will say that working on the iPhone 4S is pretty easy.
