What Made You Happy Today?


But only if she’s pretty, and has warm hands.


My wife’ll kill me :rofl:


I actually had something to do today. YAY!

It wasn’t taxing, but swapping memory from older production blades into newer testing blades was a nice change of pace. I got a bit of a shock when the guy I was workening with said that I had just passed a bit over $3,000,000 through my hands. Each blade was getting 12x 128Gb DIMMs for a total of about 1.5Tb.



Oh wow… .$3mil… lovely little nest egg there :stuck_out_tongue:


Pubic holydaye todaye :smile:


Our dept admin ordered in bagels today.


Cub Scout crossover to Boy Scouts was last night (yes, dakson is officially a Boy Scout now, how’d that happen?). I was up until midnight the night before working on the script as I was the emcee, had zero time to rehearse and did a crappy job of coordinating the portions where I had other people involved. For the time being, I have zero official responsibilities to the BSA or any unit therein.

SQL Saturday was this past weekend and I’m almost done with the post-event administrative stuff.

Our Women in Technology panel discussion at SQL Saturday was a big success. First time we’ve done it. Hopefully not the last.

My out of office Outlook rule kicks in at 1600 Thursday.


Another one that didn’t make me happy as such, but did make me laugh. I received this email today:

The episode of My Little Pony Friendship is Magic that’s playing right now has a character called Mudbriar. He’s the pony version of Sheldon Cooper, complete with a stick in the mud for his cutie mark.

Ah, poo. They didn’t get Jim Parsons to do the voice.


I burned down about 1/4 of my backlog in Pocket while on vacation. Some by reading, some by just saying “nope, not gonna bother with that” (because I’d saved it 4 years ago, when I though I was going to need to learn other stuff for continued employment).

I’ve still got 278 items sitting in there though.


People squirming and screaming because They Did Not Follow Protocol when recruiting new workers.


This is a throwback to my post 20-ish days ago, but @balance mentioned the sea glass beach in Port Townsend, WA, and I wasn’t sure our friends launched their Etsy shop yet. But here is the link!

That includes checking whether we have the required resources (m$ office, laptop etc). Love the panicky looks when I tell them that no, I don’t have any laptops, and no, I will not install the work’s precious office software on personal laptops. Causes more issues for me when M$ decide to audit things.

Now that is a line I’m gonna steal on the 26th of May…


They were consecutive, too!

Feeling chuffed, needed the morale boost :slight_smile:
