Up and out early.
At work, put the soundbar aside and started the last long-term test on the Norway box.
NP comes in and says I need to run all the soundbar tests again. I tell here no, that's insane.
Lunch was a cobb salad from GO.  It was okay. Grabbed a ham & blu salad from the fridge to take home.
Boss messages that she has assigned the soundbar to me. I reply that's insane. She says no, not the audio tests, all the other manual tests. Still insane, but ok.

Boilerplate rejection email from Roku. Not even from the recruiter. Boo, hiss.

Start running the tests and about 1/4 of the way through the test server starts crapping out.
It finally starts behaving itself at 5.
5:30, unplug the car and drive the few blocks to CHM.
6 pm, reception doors open. Not a lot of food, but each of the 3 stands has something different, and a human or 2 preparing the small plates.

Talk starts at 7. 6:45 I'm one of a handful in the hall. By 7:15 it is SRO.

It's a guy plugging his book. He is CEO of several cyber security start-ups. When he harps on changing passwords often as a major thing to do, he has lost me. When a company forces password changes, that's when hackers ramp up their keystroke harvesters. Bad. bad, bad security theater. He didn't have any answers, and he seemed to be unaware that the gummint routinely sends hackers to test systems we have foreign aided to third world countries. One of my cousins did that for a living in the 80's-90's.

Home, threw a handful of kibble into the bowl, gave Spook some treats.

Watched PTI and Long Lost Family. Spot jumped up onto my lap and curled up into my arm.

Ate the Google salad, it would have been better if they hadn't chipotele-ed the dressing. Mochi for dessert.

Delivered was a wireless charging stand for the phone.

Plans for tomorrow:
Continue the sound bar tests

  • Renn Fair & Football

    Spook started the night curled up next to me, but that didn't last long. Got up with the alarm as planned, banana breakfast and morning drugs,…

  • Renn FAIL

    The Renn Faire was from 10 am to 10 pm today, so I figured I could sleep in and get there around 11, but the water was turned off in the neighborhood…

  • To-do list and then some

    Another night with fewer trips to the loo. Spook did not stay on the bed very long. Easy to see why - when the lights came on my blanket was 3/4 off…
