  1. LB log - 2017 Week 30

    At work, there have been a few people who were forced to work an extra day during this week and only have one day off. I wasn't one of the chosen. I don't particularly look forward to having such a thing imposed on me, though I wonder if it will come to that point, given that my days off are during the week when work volume usually isn't very high and there are more people scheduled in general. I've thought about it before, and perhaps all the more so now, I should probably just stick with the schedule ...

  2. LB log - 2017 Week 29

    This week has thankfully been rather non eventful, at least as of Friday morning. No new four figure expenditures, no traffic incidents, and so on. I appreciate it. Of course, in writing this Saturday morning, I do so after bending the latch release on the unit good enough that it needs to be replace. At least it wasn't enough so that I couldn't wedge myself out from the last move. I almost had a good Saturday. Almost.

    I ordered a portable printer and it arrived on my first day off ...

    Road construction is back in full force as of the start of my work week. The commute into the garage took me an additional half hour due to a bridge being out. The warning signs which they do have up about a road closure was something which I thought applied to a road in a nearby forest reserve area since that's what was first to be torn up after the notices were set in place, so there was little surprise and much aggravation upon realizing that they did mean for it to apply to the main road instead. ...

    One of the things I forgot to mention in last week's haul was a new box fan which didn't come with a power cord. It uses the standard double-round AC input like that which we all know from various Playstation systems and the like, and despite the shape working, I still had to use a drill to whittle away some of the plastic casing inside the connection on the fan itself to get the power cord to actually fit. The fan works very well with that all in place, I'll give it that much. Alas, that fan is ...

    Halftime, 2017.

    This week's haul. Used iPhone 5c, for work; as mentioned last week, it had to be an Apple product for these various apps to work, and that was the cheapest option based on what we already pay for on phone lines as well as new equipment to purchase. In the few days I've had it, it has indeed proved to be rather valuable. New sewage sump pump. Long story short on this is that nothing catastrophic happened but the signs were there that the time for replacement was imminent. ...

  6. LB log - 2017 Week 25

    Boy I guess it's a good thing I wasn't planning on doing any exercise this morning.

    For the second time in less than a year, my phone was stolen. The more positive aspect to this second incident is that it was only my phone itself which was taken and nothing else, so hooray for not having a wallet gone and a not-cheap MP3 player taken. The bizarre aspect to it is that it happened while I was at work. I get to the "main" facility of sorts, drop the trailer I brought in, then ...

  7. LB log - 2017 Week 24

    Out of time. Spent the two days off with a lot of social activities with family and friends, and there's not much news to report there otherwise.

    Song sessions at home were nice, yet again with a fortunate trend in seeing a lot of miss decreases this time around.

    Coming next week - hopefully more news on other business actions and an arcade session where I can actually clear out the next dojo thing in Sinobuz.

    Lunar Beat. Extra Mode. Double play. "@" ...

  8. LB log - 2017 Week 23

    It took a few hours of trial and error to finally get a NoteTab Pro script to do what I wanted it to do, and I'm not especially happy with the script becoming a giant pile of redundant If clauses to get it done, but it does indeed work as I had hoped. For the much cleaner version I envision, the script would have to simply recognize variable values inserted into other variable names and operate from there, and I did get a few test lines to do exactly that otherwise, so I don't understand why I wasn't ...

  9. LB log - 2017 Week 22

    On my third day off for this holiday weekend, I applied for a trademark. The Patentn Office makes it clear in no uncertain terms that the process for approval requires several months and has many ways in which the entire process could be rejected, with no hope for appeal or refund of the filing fee (weighing in at a healthy $300). It needs to be done, though, and I'm fairly certain that I've followed the instructions as indicated and have something in mind which is unique and not in conflict with ...

    I was fully intending to be there either way, but I did wonder if it would have felt awkward to do so in light of the theme of it being behind "Safety Appreciation". Little did I know that attending would have paid off quite so literally.

    Having the leisure of choice for my days off this weekend, I elected to indulge in sleep on my days off. Sleep I did. I enjoyed a thoroughly sloven ten hour slumber on both days. Yes, this is very riveting news.

    Progress ...

    A tap on his mirror from my door. Ten minutes of discussion afterward. I better find a way out of this soon.

    Social obligations was the theme of the off days for this week. I knew I was due for a visit to the parent's place to see them and the children, and with Mother's Day coming on the weekend, I didn't think I could postpone it any longer. From there I immediately went home to eat dinner and just as quickly get out the door to congregate with my friend for another night of dual ...

    I just won't go through that door anymore. I basically don't ever have to, really. I should have known better anyway.

    The aspect to the fallout which is raising the most eyebrows is the garnishment. I'm being told that I should call the local representative. I really don't think I will, though. I'm doing what I think is the appropriate way to accept responsibility for my mistake. He really doesn't need to make references of future new hires coming in to reinforce his point, though. ...

    Nothing says Happy Monday like putting a gash in your truck. Was there fallout from it? Oh yes, there was. A lot of talking. A substantial amount of talking. There'll be a garnishment but I still stay employed there. For now. Yay.

    One more week where I can't let it go. Well, it's not like it wasn't without some attempts to make a kind of progress on things. I did send out messages and emails to a few people, and I made a few calls. The direct responses were limited (albeit the ones ...

    On the way in to start the work week, I'm idling at a stop light and the car starts to have much stronger vibration than normal. After a bit of this, the check engine light starts to flash, as opposed to merely be on. Once I start rolling it resumes being normal, but that's not good enough for me. I pop the hood once I arrive at work and take a peek. The reservoir for the coolant is bone dry, and, much more disturbingly, the oil level shows it to seemingly be below the add level. It almost looked ...

    He pointed out to me that he noticed that I never work the sixth day at the job. Yes, I don't. I've found that the job pushes my physical tolerance to its limits, as stated here repeatedly before.

    It's been several years since I've handled a new computer for personal use at home, and I had forgotten the sensation of starting off fresh and getting old programs downloaded for the first time and all the rest of fun with the initialization. As it turns out, it's been convenient for me ...
