That ugly feeling

Just got that ugly feeling you get in the pit of your stomach when you realize that due to a configuration error on your part you haven’t had a backup of your data in over a month.

And the backup you’re currently doing is taking forever.

Internet ads and Cargo pants

I just saw an internet ad for cargo pants, I thought about it for a minute and realized that’s just f*cked up. It’s bad enough I wear cheap Chinese track pants. Cargo pants would be a step too far.

Today I was reminded why I’m glad I retired.

Some things never change. Agency upper management is still jumping on the same old bandwagons of half-assed private sector concepts that end up being a total waste of time and effort.


Cutting down on FB feels better

I’ve cut down on my Facebook use last few weeks and it really feels great.

Now I know what you’re thinking, you just posted on Facebook, how does this work?

Simple, my blog post is automatically posted to Twitter which in turn are auto-posted to Facebook. That way I don’t have to see Facebook itself.

I still check Facebook periodically but not nearly as much as I used to and I really feel better for it.

I found that I didn’t need to know what other people were doing.

Having my own blog has replaced the need to use Facebook as a place to vent. And I don’t have to worry about the liberal FB police not liking my posts.
