Thanks. It's nice to be getting out of IT, too. Time for a change of pace.
So not doing stuff for NTG or any IT at all any more?
Mostly out of IT. Operations and Engineering now. The CIO of the new company will report up to me, though.
What I find hilarious is that you're going to know straight off if your CIO is totally BS'ing you or not, just based on your background in IT. Just tell me they're not getting their CIO from SW please.
Lived with my parents until I went off to college at 17, didn't live with them again after that.
I was close to the same, the winter after I graduated HS, I was not so kindly asked to leave.. and I have been financially OK enough to never need to live with my parents or anyone else since. I consider it one of my personal accomplishments.
@tim_g In all honesty I just need to track where I've left off. Sometimes I honestly can't remember and I'll get on a machine and feel like I've put on too much weight. I don't know if I am truly over weight from my last visit, or if I'm being lazy.
If I know where I left off, I'll know that I'm at minimum not regressing...if that makes sense. So all I really need I guess is something to track the exercise, weight (or whatever important metric the exercise entails), and date. Perhaps a Google Sheet is all I really need...but not sure how easy manipulating that on my phone would be.
When I did it, I used one from bodybulding.com taht I bought. I'll see if I can find it. That's your best bet. Using an app on your phone will take too long. Pen and paper is the best way to go imho.
Looks a little different from when I had it, but same stuff. This looks a little better too.
Ooo. That's not bad.
I ended up picking up one of the sheets that my gym provides and am using that. The only annoyance is juggling the sheet, a pen, my water, and my phone. lol
I think what I may end up doing is logging everything initially on paper and then putting it into a Google Sheet or something later on. I do want to track my progress. I like seeing the numbers go in the right direction. :-D
My parents had some serious flooding. We have pictures from one of their neighbors on a kayak going through the streets. It's really crazy.
Thankfully they only have to gut one room of their house and repair the siding and sheathing ~3 feet up the front of the house.
We are on an island so we were really worried about storm surge. We got some flooding from it, but luckily we are in a high area of the island so our house wasn't affected. I do know quite a few people that were under water. It certainly wasn't as bad as Harvey in my area though.
My parent's house is up just above Daytona. A1A held up this year thankfully so they were able to get to it when the water receded. They had power, oddly, before the storm surge went back out.
So weird that the east coast was affected so much by this storm. We were preparing for the worst when we thought it was going to hit the east coast, but honestly I relaxed a little bit when I saw it was going to make landfall on the west coast. Irma was so strong and her reach was so great that no one was really out of her rage.
@irj I know there were some rafting places that took people rafting in the area. My honeymoon was in January so they, of course, weren't operating. I didn't think it was that cold, to be honest, and probably would have been fine in a boat on a river or lake, maybe not rafting.
This entire season was so sloppy. If I weren't so invested I'd stop watching.
It's now a show with books written about it, rather than a show from books. That might be a big factor.
So they have an insane amount of references they can use instead of having to create the entire show from scratch? George R. R. Martin even gave them every major plot point. Wouldn't that make their job that much easier?
Who is "they" here? GRRM writes the show.
According to IMDB he's written 4 episodes and those were in early seasons.
As far as writing the screenplays, yeah. But my understanding is that he's still writing the actual show.
I'm pretty sure he is in a supervisory position at best.
