Stranger Things

I finally got around to trying Stranger Things on Netflix and it’s as good as everyone claims. I’m only a few episodes in, but I’m enjoying it.  Now back to episode three.

Wasted Time

Sometimes the challenge with trying to find a new method to solve a problem is that the resultant new solution is technically better than the original method, but it does not meet the organization’s goals, or business model, and so the time spent creating it can feel like a waste of time.

Never Enough

Why is it that no matter how much we have, it’s never enough? It doesn’t seem to matter, at least in my life, how successful I am or how well I’m doing, there is a pull to “do better” in that area of my life. We do this with our careers, telling ourselves if I […]

Restoring Performance

A few weeks ago I reloaded my iMac. I backed up the important files and reloaded a fresh copy of macOS onto my aging iMac. Prior to the reload, the machine was unusable and would just sit with the spinning ball whenever I tried to launch an application. Now, after the reload, it is once again […]

Reset

There are times in life when a reset becomes necessary, sometimes due to external forces beyond our control, and other times, at our own choosing. This site is once again being reset by a combination of external and internal circumstances. My hosting provider had to move my account from one server to another because of […]
