If you are reading this early on Monday morning there is a good possibility that I am still sitting at Hennessy Mazda awaiting the completion of an oil change for the M6. Of course it is also possibile that I am sitting at the Waffle House across the road from Hennessy eating breakfast, or driving from Jonesboro to Midtown to go to work.
A week from Friday I will be driving up to Raleigh and want to ensure that the M6 is in tip-top shape. I also want to get the work done early enough to handle any unforeseen problems before it’s too late.
I forgot that I was going to attempt to replace the broken pull cord of my lawnmower this weekend. Dangen! Looking at my calendar it appears as if Wednesday evening after work will be the earliest time for me to make the attempt to repair this. I need to get this done soon, or find an alternate solution, before my lawn gets too high again.
Making Progress, Slow Progress
Yesterday I spent more time getting an app written in Swift up and running. I can’t tell you how important it is for me to get on the Swift bandwagon, unless of course all of my stocks go through the roof and I cash out and retire.
My goal is to have the app written, complete with unit tests, and being built and distributed via Jenkins and Fastlane by October. I know, you all hate the technical mumbo-jumbo, but it’s kinda necessary here.
When completed I can safely add all of this to my resume juuust in case I need to be distributing that again in the near future.
Bad Luck Charm?
Last night I took a break from my coding efforts to become a soccer watcher. On Friday I mentioned buying a Fox Soccer Match Pass to watch Bundesliga, but as an added bonus I can also watch some MLS games using the service. Last night the Atlanta United played some team in Kansas City, I’m not even sure which Kansas City, and I watched the game by AirPlaying video from my iPad to my Apple TV.
Unfortunately Atlanta lost, making me 0-1 as a fan. I just found out that I gave up too early, and that Atlanta tied the game! Maybe Atlanta was able to score because I turned the game off? 🤷🏻♂️
A few weeks ago I noticed that my left shoe had a few scratched lines on the top, near the toe; the right shoe has no such lines. I finally figured out what is causing these lines, apparently I don’t open the M6’s driver-side door wide enough, and when swinging my left foot into the car I am scraping it against the bottom of the door. Given the number of lines, as well as the fact that I am just noticing this, my leg movement may have been altered by my bicycle wreck in April. Elementary my dear ITP-Reader, elementary.
Hope your weekend was eventful.
