What WAS I thinking?!

Recent snippets from the Random Thoughts file I keep in Drop Box, update occasionally during my days, and upload to a public folder on Google Drive.


10 Mar 2013 – Sunday

1.) The day has been busy, productive, and very positive on many different levels. Yes, I’m satisfied with what I’ve accomplished. But I also realize there’s room for improvement in how I do things.
2.) Meetings (at least one face to face, and maybe others over the Internet) tomorrow will keep me busy.

1.) This is two nights in a row that I’ve wakened in the middle of the night to loud partying noises coming from the apartment across the hall. Not good. The guy apparently closes down the bars then brings whatever party he’s having back home with him.

09 Mar 2013 – Saturday

1.) Realized that my frustrations with the smartphone may have been partly due to its old (Gingerbread) software. So this afternoon I ordered a Samsung Galaxy Note that runs Jellybean, like my Nexus 7.
2.) Following the NNS race online with Race Buddy now, but I’ll have to leave it early to go to evening Mass.

1.) What a frustration! HTC sent me instructions on how to perform security updates on four system applications on my smartphone. Following the instructions to the letter, the first two apps broke. I’m not even going to try the other two.
2.) In other news, the widget in the Gnome toolbar on my Debian computer just notified me there were five updates ready for that machine. Doing the apt-get update and upgrade thing from the command line worked as smooth as silk. I sure wish everything worked as well as Debian from the command line.

08 Mar 2013 – Friday

1.) After making about a dozen phone calls in addition to the dozen emails I sent out two days ago, I’ve printed a report and am ready to head out to a face to face meeting. And, wouldn’t you just know it, it’s just started to rain. Grr…

1.) Last night’s slightly segmented 8-hour sleep, from 21:30 to 05:30, was restful and had detailed dreams in both the 1st 4-hour segment and the second.
2.) Due to another instance of missing data on the thumb drive used for storage with the RPi, I’ll be doing ALL my Random Thoughts in Drop Box starting today and continuing for the foreseeable future.
3.) A VERY busy Friday is ahead of me; I’m glad the fog of last night’s sleep is lifting so I can get to work.
