If I think about my finances or the state of the country or our stupid politicians I get depressed. Denial -- it's not just a river in Egypt anymore. See links in the notes.
My coffee cup has a hole in the top.
Went up to the Menlo Park office, early (for me), to interview an applicant for our embedded systems job, which left me with less time in the morning for music. I made up for it some during the hour-long power failure last night.
The gateway machine lasted only about half an hour; I strongly suspect that the extra power drain was coming from the UVerse modem, since my Linux router is only using about 17W. I'm going to move the DHCP server down to the fileserver, so at least the internal network can keep going if it happens again.

Preferably earlier * 9:15am Menlo Park. Interviews. Talk at 11, lunch afterward 9:15 - 9:45 Steve : The problem with git plus ssh is that it's easy to lose track of which machine you're on and what state its repo is in. @ shardArtist (co-worker) Cate T. * benefits open enrollment - done. Dropped back to the less expensive vision plan (1 pair/person/year), which saves $250 * the 4 pkgs of 10 emergency blankets I ordered from Amazon arrived. * buy: pantsu : brief power glitch. Computers are fine, of course. : much longer power glitch. Gateway lasted less than half an hour, which kinda sucks.
