Drive down to Chattanooga and you can dine at my table! What'd you make?!?!

Chicken tarragon. Usually it comes out well, but this time...I dunno. Just not digging it. Might be more of a Fickle Tummy thing than anything wrong with the dish. Maybe there's something I got subtly wrong with the seasoning.

Sounds good!

I grilled out yesterday for Memorial Day (or rather, grilled in, since it was raining). Roasted carrots, homemade french fries, green beans, deviled eggs, the whole shebang. If you're still hungry, we have leftovers! :D

And I ended up saving some of the ground beef, so we're doing tacos tonight or tomorrow!

I love cooking. It's therapeutic for me. :)

Ugh, I'd say, it sucks having a class where pretty much every other guy but you has pretty much decided to walk out of it (as in, they are no longer going to attend). Admitedly, they have no chances to pass which is why they're doing it; but still, that's not a reason to pretty much leave me alone in there. Considering the work at this point is now stuff to be done in teams. Well, the whole class is a single team.

Worst of all, they don't even want to tell the teacher about it! They just plan to no longer attend the class or even explain so. I'd feel more frustrated about it if it wasn't that they are pouring effot into the other classes, which also have class-wide work to do.

Man, it's too stressful... at least it's the last classes of my career...

Mechatronics Engineering. This year is my last, hopefully; and I can finally place the struggle of 7 years behind me (not all were in Mechatronics, though, I took Aerospatial Engineering fresh out of High School, but ultimately failed after 4 years). Overall, I can't really say I've liked the 2010's much...

Hang in there! Almost done!

I studied Communications in college. I did two years in Biochem, hated all the math in chemistry, and opted for Communication because of a girl I thought was cute, hahaha... I regret it. Communications was mostly worthless. I hate marketing, I did a stint in an advertising firm and it all felt so fake.

I am lucky I fell into what I'm doing now, which is information management. I've been able to do a little bit of business analysis work, some development work, Agile leadership work, and now I'm fully into the project management side.

I wish I had done something more focused like you're doing. :)

Uh oh. Unplug everything from the motherboard and try again. I've had it happen once or twice and for some reason just resetting all the wires seemed to get me going again.

From what I can tell, it's a Windows issue and I'll have to reinstall it.

Reinstalling Windows worked, but now I have to restore everything else. Fuck.

:(

That sucks. I'm sorry. Do you partition your harddrives to avoiding losing stuff? Or have multiple hard drives or something else?

Hopefully it's just the inconvenience of reinstalling and losing settings.

No data loss, but I lost all my programs. I do have multiple drives, but they aren't mirrored or anything. Drive 2 is all my video for streaming through Plex.

I guess that means it'll take awhile before you examine those unused sounds.

j/k

technical difficulties suck, hopefully this will get worked out. redundancy is key, and it's easier than ever to make backups with the cloud, flash drives, etc.

I had forgotten that little bit.

Most of my key programs are back. Still missing a few, but they can wait.

Ugh, Mauron, I'm sorry. I hate computer issues, they suck ass! I'm sorry you had to go through so much. Reinstalling an operating system is soooo time consuming.

I've been having computer issues all week at work. For 2 days I wasn't able to be on the phone for 45 minutes each day due to system issues. Then yesterday my left monitor was flashing black. I'm hoping it's fixed now. If it's not the IT guy told me to tell him and he'll give me a new one. Computer issues suck!

I hope today is going better for you Mauron!
