Did not stay home. Went in. Had a meeting. Went to lunch. Had another meeting. Got more done than expected.
Got a bunch of packages. Missed two big important ones.
Decided I WOULD start a newsletter. Or at least let people subscribe in case I ever send one out. Im not posting the link to twitter or facebook, but LiveJournal seems safe enough. Cough.

Staying home tomorrow. Reviewing bugs, poking at things, resting.

Stayed home sick but did not get a sick day. Between a half hour meeting that ended up taking two hours and my boss wanting a big fixed, I worked from about 10 to 15 or 16. We'll see how I feel tomorrow.

Meetings then home early because I wasn't feeling well. Went to bed for as long as I could stand then went downstairs to install a new wifi AP and watch Adam Ruins Everything. Also started setting up a PINE64 to be a tor exit node.

Spent a good chunk of the day getting a tiny VoCore computer set up to be a tor middlebox. Semi-bricked my BlackSwift doing the same.. need to get a usb/uart adapter to get into the serial console and fix it.

found the old house was unlocked, front and back, the garage remote is awol, and we've got squatters in the gazebo. Which is just awesome.

Adrian's last day at work. Started a major database backfill. Not much else.

Tried a new place for dinner. Was pretty good.

Never drive to the east side at 3pm when it's raining. It'll take for gods damned ever to get home.

New coworker started today. I got to the office just in time to see her giving up on trying to get in, and wasn't able to call out before she was out of earshot. But she got coffee, so it was okay. Got a complicated problem solved more easily than expected. Solved an unrelated problem in another code base. Got my permanent crown put on (my fifth, on #15). First one that fit perfectly with no adjustment. Dropped off sleep test machine; should hear back in a couple days. Dug thru more boxes. Found many things I'd been looking for, but none of what I was searching for.

Brunch. Rewatched Cloud Atlas. Lamented the things I should have been doing instead. Followed up on some very old emails.

Trying to get the nonlocal part of the team to comment, positively or negatively, on the suggestions come down from our "one story ivory tower here in Ballard" is rather like pulling teeth. We'll see how the new experiment works.

Meanwhile, computers continue to be terrible and the world continues to be awful.

I don't know how many fronts I can fight on at once. Need to finish one war before starting the next. But winter is coming and it's going to last a decade. I'm already tired.

It continues to be a shitty week, even tho it's now been a full week. Today I've been particularly down, even tho today itself has been better than many. Actually slept halfway decently. Was still up earlier than I'd've preferred, but not at 4 or 5.
Several new people joined my slack team. totally not fomenting rebellion in there, so don't let me know if you're interested in joining the paranoid infosec amateur hour.
went to see a diabetes educator at the polyclinic to talk about insulin pumps. I'd been eyeing the omnipod because it has no tubes, but turns out I probably want the t:slim x2, because it has bluetooth and upgradable firmware, so it will almost certainly be getting hybrid-loop functionality in the next year or so. And I totally wouldn't investigate the possibilities of replacing the software with my own.
Forgot to run errands on the way home.
Started to catch up on Last Week Tonight.

I missed last night again. Been posting daily since 22 March 12, other than a handful of forgot-to-hit-posts and a few "nopes" here and there. Such has the past week been.

More good meetings. Little else accomplished.

Anybody know much about radio transmission of digital data? Specifically encoding text as audio for transmission over cheap handhelds. All the ham software I find is kinda... horrible to use, to say nothing of entirely GUI based and often windows-only. `minimodem` looked good for a while, but we need better modes, in order to get decent speed while handling noise issues. Can't take 8 minutes to transmit a 1kb message. fldigi is the only thing I've really found so far and it is painful to use. Plus what I really want is a command line tool. Preferably one I can run on a raspi or similar.

Spent most of the day retweeting things.

Was told that a work project I spent a lot of time on is going to be scrapped. This made me happy, 'cause it means we don't have to support that department's use of it anymore.

The whole office went to ballard market for lunch together today. First time we've /all/ gone at once since hitting five people. It was nice, particularly on the heels of a meeting where I learned the newest dev had felt abandoned when we all kinda just kept working on her first day. We've made plans to make the next onboarding (in a couple weeks) a better experience. Hopefully.

Of course, that's also the day I'm getting my new crown seated.

Work. Meeting to discuss what we want in a new hire to fill the departing senior dev's slot. Ended up as a larger discussion of the issues in the corporate culture and what we're going to do about it. Then went to deal with getting the old house's front door repaired. Turned out it didn't really need repair. Got a massage. Came home. Started drinking.


You know how the rest is going. Had to stop drinking, or I never would.

Endocrinologist appointment. Went well. She's happy(ier) with my cholesterol numbers.. they're not good, but not causing her to panic anymore. She's set me up with the educator folks to talk about insulin pumps.. confirmed that U-500 R would be just fine in a pump. woot.

Staff meeting at work. Much backchannel .... snark. Also talked with boss about the nature of the replacement for the leaving senior dev... I said we need someone at least as senior as me, and if we can find a senior architect so much the better. I like being the big fish in the little pond, but I /am/ comparatively new to the whole architect role thing. Also talked about a bunch of other things I'm not going to go into right now.

Finally put together a household budget for the new place, and in the process updated Loree and my Joint budget... and it turns out we're not as completely screwed as I thought.. Having two more people to contribute to the expenses as well as someone who likes to cook is going to make things a LOT easier than we thought.

Would still be nice to win the lottery. Or at least sell the old house.
