Just realized yesterday, when a coworker remarked how 3 of us old timers have more experience at Market Track than everyone else currently in the office combined, that I just had my 15th anniversary at the same company. 15 years. I guess officially, it won't be 15 years at Market Track until November, but still, 15. Crazy. Back in the office mostly. Office renovations is nice. Have a lot less space. Finally completely unpacked a box I've probably been carrying around since we moved to the Sears Tower? I don't have a cubicle to hide it in anymore. Nice eating out again and knowing exactly the nutritional value of the food (mostly). Better than when I worked at home in the kitchen. As for the shoulder, only have a couple more PT sessions. Apparently I'm far enough along that insurance won't pay for any more. And have my followup with the ortho next week, so hoping I get the sign off to start biking again. With medical clearance. Working on some home networking upgrades. Got my pi-holes up and running. Definitely seems faster (not sure how much is not requesting ads or having a local DNS server. Need to install the UPS for the closet, finally got one after the last power outage. And finally getting some additional fans for cooling in that room. Hopefully that will work to get better circulation, and I won't look into getting a tiny AC unit for the room, however tempting it may be. Oh, watched WWDC 2018 on Monday, and with no new Mac mini announcements, went ahead and ordered up the parts for a Hackintosh Mac mini. That should be interesting. Replacing my main home server (specifically for Plex transcoding). Had to double check on data speeds with my Drobo 5D to make sure that wasn't the bottleneck, and it actually might have been, because I had too much data in a single volume I think. Moving stuff to a secondary volume made things speed up like 5x. Also, I guess when macOS Mojave gets released, and my current Mac minis and iMac are no longer supported, I'll look into upgrading those. Found a Wonderall close to work, so tried out Thai rolled ice cream for the first time yesterday. I tried the green tea, which had marshmallows as the mix in, so I think it was a bad choice to show off the mixing. Just tasted like green tea ice cream.
