There is no normal life that is free of pain. It's the very wrestling with our problems that can be the impetus for our growth. ~ Mr. Rogers

I have Solo on as background noise and I just caught Han Solo betting a VCX-100 at the sabacc game with Lando. I had to look it up because VCX-100 sounded so familiar.

The VCX-100 is the same type of Corellian freighter as the Ghost from Star Wars Rebels. What a nice Easter Egg for Star Wars fans.

It’s too bad that ABC canceled “For the People”. I caught the season two premiere while randomly surfing and liked it so much that I watched all of season one before continuing with season two, mostly week-to-week. It’s a good show, I will miss it.

Ha, I guess I should add that I'm moving them from Google Cloud Platform.

Moving my static websites to Azure Storage. Whee! I finally figured out how to use azcopy and how to setup permissions.

Playing around with static website hosting on Azure.

I couldn’t send messages from my desk at work on Verizon Mon-Wed. Webpages wouldn’t load. Basically, there nothing data related worked on Verizon at my desk at work. This is T-Mobile today. Yay!

Just to be clear, this isn’t in the middle of nowhere. It’s in Sunnyvale, CA just down the street from the old Yahoo campus, which is now Verizon.

I switched back to T-Mobile this evening. Thank goodness for number portability.

I switched from T-Mobile to Verizon over the weekend thinking that Verizon would be better. It was okay at home, but at work it was atrocious. This is a Speedtest outside my office. I couldn’t Speedtest inside because the access was so slow.
