Dutch Lock Down Day One Hundred Thirty Eight

[And Then I Jumped Out Of The Airplane]

Not literally.

But OMG OMG OMG figuratively.

But first the news:

Last night I was having trouble falling asleep, stressed about today. My plan was to do my normal morning routine at work and do the live streaming today from one to three.

But.

As I was keeping my partner awake with mutterings, he suggested I do it as soon as I arrive at work. Immediately. No procrastination.

So I did.

Dutch Lock Down Day One Hundred Thirty Five

[Today Was Kinda Rough]

It started with a call from IT.

I couldn’t reset my laptop password. I mean, I could in recovery mode, but it would be overwritten once the operating system loaded. Or something loaded.

I hacked on it until I figured out that it was resetting the local password to match the Active Directory password which is SUPER creepy, but I guess that makes it easier to monitor my system help me when something’s wrong.

Awesome.

But first the news:

The good news is that not only was the root cause discovered, but it was ‘resolved’ in that it’s a feature, not a bug; I wrote it up so it’s ACTUALLY DOCUMENTED and moved on.

While I received some AMAZING (saved, bookmarked, noted) ideas for projects around rainleander.github.io, I went with a published status of The Farmer Project and the supporting three projects Wake Up Beauty It’s Time to Beast [Health], Other People’s Computers [Technical], and Speak Softly and Carry a Big Stick [Leadership] projects.

But first the news:

Tonight I finished the preliminary project design documents for all four documents as well as a preliminary review and uploaded it all to rainleander.github.io.

And.

Well.

I’m ludicrously #SQUEEE about the next year.

Actually SIXTEEN MONTHS.

I am joining not one but TWO events next week because I MUST DO ALL THE THINGS!

But first the news:

I also should probably STOP doing two events in a single week as it means on Tuesday night when I’ve done the second thing I’m going to super CRASH.

And have really wonky dreams.

But I LOVE LOVE LOVE these two events SO MUCH!! !

[Look Who’s Writing In The Morning]

I mean, sure, maybe the news won’t be as available, but that just means there are fewer news links. Or none at all.

But first the news:

I mean, nltimes.nl consistently has the most recent news, but that writing titles in all caps thing is ANNOYING, PEOPLE.

#STOP
