I'm done with my smart watch. For the longest time, I had an Apple Watch. There was a lot good about it. I liked getting textes that I could scan without pulling out my phone. I liked the maps app tapping my wrist, telling me when to turn, and I especially liked the 'find my … Continue reading Done with Smart Watches
The product I support in my real job is OEM-d to two other manufacturers, and I create and maintain the training courses for them, as well as the original. For a modest fee, of course. Ever so often they ask for updates or changes. It's a living. A good one actually. So one of these … Continue reading A Barn Find

We rebuilt our kitchen, and the contractor thought "Hey, it'd be useful to have an outlet at the … Continue reading USB outlets
I'm not an early adopter. It's not because I'm some sort of Luddite. I've seen my early adopter friends pay too much for new tech, only to have better and cheaper show up in a year or two. I had a friend that bought a Cd player when they first came out. Manual feed, one … Continue reading Apple Watch, Series 1
It's cold outside, and I'm inside reprocessing video for e-learning lessons. This is what I do when I'm not traveling to cities to complain about.
