No. It(was)’s 2:56am, and I am not yet asleep.

Today was spent doing a little bit of cleaning, reorganizing, and reflecting. Tomorrow I will attempt to work from home for the first time, and without really there being a lot of information on what I may still need from the physical building. I can already think of one report off the top of my head that doesn’t run under windows 10 for some reason. I was logging into a virtual machine there to run it, maybe it will let me remote from one to the next. Sounds… reasonable, right?

Working on a todo list, but wanted to make sure I hit some keys here before I proceeded further.

Noticing that we are down to our trace amounts of snow where it had piled up or places that the sun just never hits. SO, that’s good news I suppose.

Writing this down. I’ve always felt mildly dumb in regards to ‘daylight time’ vs. ‘standard time’. It does change after daylight savings. I should have inferred that at some point in my 40 years, but not so much I guess.

Clocks Back or Forward? – “Spring forward, fall back” is one of the little sayings used to remember which way to set your watch. You set your clock forward one hour in the spring when DST starts (= lose 1 hour), and back one hour when DST ends in the fall (= regain 1 hour)

The Duex

So, most of my day has passed way too quickly, and I did have plans on getting somethings accomplished today. I did pick up the special research event in Pokemon Go. There is some info about that somewhere on this site I think… 😛
Jon and I are planning on walking in the park adjacent to our house and see what we can do. Thankfully, the temp is now up to 32. When I would have normally left in the early AM it was, 18 I think. SO we did an Alolan Raichu raid and got some inventory back.

Tonight we showed Nate & Josh our roll20 setup, and they seemed to be ok with the state of it now. We attacked various mobs until just before midnight.

OK! Let’s goooo! WordPress hard reset for no good reason at all.

Spring is here (despite a trace amount of snow being in tonights forecast), and we’re just in time to not be able to really leave our homes to interact with anyone. It is interesting though, scary, but interesting that decade designated as ‘the 20’s’ has had some type of plague component for the past several centuries!

1720 – Bubonic plague
1820 – Cholera
1920 – Spanish Flu
2020 – Coronavirus?

But, lets… talk about something else shall we? OK, so car fixed up, the remainder of duckets were to go towards perhaps a gaming/streaming PC, but I may just put that on pause for the time being. The concept of streaming games and perhaps even things like excel tutorials really appeals to me, and while the start up costs to stream are otherwise negligible, the only game I would be able to play on this PC would be SuperKeyboardBuffering2k2Turbo. Mobile streaming appeals to me even more, so if you know of some cheap unlimited data cellular plan, please pass on the info! 🙂

So, I have a number of things I can do between sessions of doing work related emails. Here is a short list off the top of my head right now; Photoshop, Netflix, Learn Stuff online, Play Pokemon Go with the incense pack (spawns are still increased), Work out like crazy. I’m sure I can expand upon this soonish.

More to come, right?…

Here is a thing! “Watch Netflix remotely with friends – Netflix Party is a Chrome extension for watching Netflix remotely with friends, e.g., for movie nights with that long-distance special someone. It synchronizes video playback and adds group chat.” So, basically it adds chat and lets your friends sit through a long pause while you go to the bathroom.…
