General update

Taking a break from the basement for a bit, maybe calling it a night. I have one more thing to finish, I think. More a decision on whether to part out something or leave it whole and consider using it for some utilitarian purpose. Leaving it whole is winning, but just barely, and may lose to a different day's thought.

Added an inch-and-a-half to the chair height. The chair was a dumpster dive from IKEA, so it's not one that is adjustable in height, and I needed it a tad bit higher. It's just about right now.

The Mad Scientist Lab is actually turning out to be a very cool creative place to be. Where before it was a dingy dirty basement, now it's a well-lit workspace that's still pretty dirty but filled with neat stuff to do things with, and it can be cleaned.

Job hunting has pretty much been at a standstill over the holiday weekend for obvious reasons. It starts back up tomorrow. I've been thinking about some possibilities, stretching the membrane (mem-brain?) a bit. I'm still in the cleaning/organizing phase, so no defined progress in the Tao, but the forming of the mental cloud that leads to brainstorming is happening in the background.

Someday, all will be klar, Herr Kommisar.

Rest well, my dumplings.

When I said I was open to telecommuting jobs, I meant telecommuting jobs in my field, not bill collection or medical transcription or insurance sales. Jeebus.

And the number of "technologically advanced" companies that don't consider virtualization is staggering.
