Pic from the Chris Stapleton show last night. Yeah, it's crooked. Alcohol may have been involved.

Giving the Choctaw Nation some money tonight, taking the spouse to see Chris Stapleton.

Road find sliding miter saw. I'm going to remove the slides and bearings for use in a repstrap 3d printer and take the rest to the metal salvage yard. There's some rust to clean up but they slide very smoothly.

Is it Y2K all over again? Probably not but it's good to be aware. Many facets of our daily lives are now dependent on GPS timing including telecommunications and power transmission and are relatively recent converts to GPS timing. Like IOT devices, many of the products out there might not be ready.

Well today wasn't so late at work. Did follow thru with listening to Concrete Blonde today. I really love Johnette Napolitano's voice. They still want me to work tomorrow which sucks. Going home to see a movie with my spouse and relax. Taking the weekend away from nonprofessional screen time. Y'all have a great weekend.

Gas prices are creeping up, just in time for spring break when many will be travelling. Shocker.

I jammed to the Replacements all day today. They were(are) such a great band. Worked late but it didn't matter with good music. I think tomorrow is gonna be a Concrete Blonde day.

Listening to this week's Linux Action News Chris reminded us that Android is an open operating system. Not anymore, Chris. They don't even ship the old AOSP browser anymore and you cannot remove google apps. You can disable them but even when you do, google play services still runs in the background and uses bandwidth.

At the orthopedic surgeon today to get my shoulder looked at. It's been hurting for about the last three months. I had to drive further into Dallas than I normally do. The traffic here has become horrible. I counted 15 sky cranes on my way in. Lots of people are moving to Texas.

OK. I'm thinkin' I'm ready to pull the trigger on buying a macbook to run Linux. As I understand it, I want one that's little older. How old?

Public Image Ltd. Is my muse for the day. Who's yours?

My employer is pushing their BYOP(Bring Your Own Phone) program strongly. It makes sense for them, I get it but they have some over the top conditions.

You must only get apps from the the approved app store(google) and that's the one place where I will not get apps.

You cannot use Tor or any other VPN on your phone. Count me out on that.

And here's the kicker: you must let them install an app on your phone through which they can remotely default your phone. Backups are up to you.

No thanks.

Exhale..... Coffee break. I want to go home and go to bed. 70+ hour work weeks are killing me.
