Philadelphia Flyers vs. L.A. Kings.

I love going to hockey games, just not when I need to get up at 4:15 the next morning. 🏒🏒

A couple years ago a fellow Trekkie I knew in high school got remarried and I had the DJ play this at her wedding reception. The confused looks from the non-Trekkies were priceless. 🖖

I dislike many things. For example, car shopping. Necessary evils are necessary. And evil.

That is all.

Both of my Instagram accounts are now deleted.

As soon as I am ready, I will most likely set up a pixelfed account, as well as divorcing my Flickr account from Yahoo.

Hoping that the January illnesses are just about done. Four adults and a toddler in close quarters makes for a nice game of "Tag, you're sick!"

I might even get in my first full work week of the year this week.

My social media diet for 2019 has begun in earnest...

2019 Roadmap:

* New gaming PC is up and running. ✔️

* Deleted my LinkedIn account. ✔️

Next up:

* Complete the reboot of website/blog.

* Reorganize my computer lair to accommodate new hardware.

* Prepare for eventual deletion of certain social media accounts.

Down the road:

* Lament about how little I actually accomplished.

Finally got GladOS-9000 outfitted with Ubuntu 18.10. Every game in My Steam library seems to be running fine.

It's going to be interesting working with Ubuntu after years of running opensuse.

Until I have the cash and space for dual monitors, I need to look into a simple DVI switch for my current setup.

Some of my favorite Cory Doctorow books:
Down and Out in the Magic Kingdom
Little Brother

In addition to spending some quality time with GladOS-9000, I think I'm going to binge read some Neil Gaiman to start off the new year.

My sanity project is now ready to drive me insane; GladOS-9000 is now online.

Sporting an AMD Ryzen 5 2600X, 16 GB RAM, and an AMD Radeon RX 580 GPU, she is my new mid-range gaming rig.

Last night I installed Ubuntu 18.10 and Steam, and queued up my game library to install while I went to bed.

It is only a coincidence that no one else will be home tonight...

Started the day with a pot of coffee and a couple hours of Civilization 5, now time for a few errands and maybe some computer building time.

I am *really* going to dislike going back to work next Wednesday. 😉

It's time to interrupt working on my website to head into the city for this year's rendition of Disney on Ice.

I think the last time we did this was when my daughter was my granddaughter's age...

And that's why Jingle Bells is his favorite song.

Merry Christmas, Fediverse!

I really enjoy Christmas music. Especially if it ever was played by Dr. Demento.

I will be fine tuning my WordPress website over my holiday break. Does anyone have suggestions for a good all purpose theme?

While working on the reboot for my website, I realized just how broad my online footprint is.

It looks like one of my projects for 2019 will be culling a good portion of my email addresses, web logins, social media accounts, and the like.
