I’m Done Browsing, Google Chrome Has Finally Won Me Over.

Google Chrome

It only took 8 years but I’m finally settling down with Google Chrome.  2017 is the year I finally push aside all other browsers and focus on the one that now gives me everything I need.  That need is mostly focused on unification across platforms.  It wasn’t long ago however that Chrome was not only … Read more

Discovering the Magic of Tabletop Games

Discover the Magic of Tabletop Games

My Introduction to Tabletop Games A few years ago a couple friends invited me over to play a tabletop game called Settlers of Catan.  At a time when most game invites meant Texas Hold ’em the idea of playing a board game was very different.  The game had a pretty easy instruction set, but was … Read more

Tablet Mode! Windows 10 on the Dell Venue 8 Pro

It’s finally here, Windows 10 and it’s on my tablet!

I don’t recall there ever being a time when an operating system was launched that both the media and consumers were this excited (and generally positive) about something that Microsoft was launching.  It’s not that much of a surprise however to those of us who have been using Windows 10 preview for the past few months.  Windows 10 is here and it’s time to upgrade.

You Get One. How Leaving my Job Changed my Life.

Exactly one year ago today I quit my job.

We don’t often speak of it that way but that’s what I did. I’ve worked since I was fourteen years old and I’d never quit a job, ever.  I can tell you that no one was as shocked as me (and more than a few people were shocked) and it came as such a surprise that even I was blindsided.

In fairness the job I quit wasn’t really the job I quit, the one I truly quit was the one I gave the appropriate two weeks notice and left for another job.  Unfortunately the job I left for was the wrong job but I took it because I knew the job I was leaving was probably going to kill me.  The job I took had promise and seemed in theory a good fit for me but after about a month I realized I couldn’t have been more wrong. The job seemed to fit all my interests and the people there were nice but the more I talked about it to others the more I realized it wasn’t going to be for me.

As I mentioned in my “This is 40” post there were other things that happened on the day of my birthday.  One of those things was the announcement of the North Scranton 9-10 year old All-Stars, and my son made the team.  Last year during a fantastic Pony League season we went to a few All-Star games and at that point he decided that the next year (his first eligible year) he wanted to be an all-star, so that was the goal since before this season began.  As a kid I didn’t excel in sports, I enjoyed them but I hated practicing.  My son isn’t like that at all thankfully and he spent the winter months in camps at The Sandlot to help improve his game and keep practicing because he loved playing.
