Back at the gym

Yeah, I fell off the workout wagon. My routine changed. A new job happened. I did not respond well to the change. Every hotel I stayed at had a gym. I could have stayed on track. Today I broke that unhealthy cycle and got on the treadmill.

Nashville to Denver Flight

My first team meeting with my new company happened this week. It lasted an entire week. I learned a lot about the team’s roles and responsibilities. The team has a pretty diverse set of duties. Taking on a new role can be exciting. Even after all my years of college I’m learning new things every day. Being a lifelong learner tends to involves waves of learning. Being exposed to a constant flood of new things tends to be somewhat unsettling. It does not happen very often. For better or worse, most of the content that we are exposed to is somewhat familiar.

Right now I’m watching the 268th episode of This Week in Google (TWIG). Leo Laporte seems to be really excited about a new phone with a cognac colored back.

I’m thinking about buying one of the new HTC Nexus 9 tablets.

Traveling with large groups can be pretty interesting. Group dynamics can very widely. Sharing team automobiles can reduce cost, but it pretty much locks everyone into going to the same places. With really large groups it can be a real challenge to pick a place everybody will like.

I got logged into my Google developer account today. Everything is in place to pivot into video game development. I’m going to need to reboot the Jupiter Darkly website this month.

What is the Thermal dot com Seek $200 thermal phone camera all about?

Is ACER selling a 4k monitor? What are the minimum graphics card requirements required to support a 4k monitor?

What is up with the Audioquest DAC dragonfly with built in AMP?

The finish line

The business ethics class I’m teaching this term is almost complete. Only one week remains in the class. I’m pretty much ready to work on new things. I’m ready to start working on coding a few projects. At this point, I have a few game ideas and a few ideas for other projects. Now is the time to make a change. I’ll reevaluate my decision after one quarter.

That Flu shot thing

I managed to get my annual flu shot today. The process was pretty simple and it was covered by my insurance company. It took about 15 minutes from start to finish.

Nashville Barbecue

My first trip to Nashville seems to be going pretty well this week. I’m still on the hunt for good barbecue in the State of Tennessee. Apparently, one of my coworkers is a national barbecue sauce champion. Obviously, that is a skill that will need to be demonstrated to be truly appreciated. During the Southwest Airlines boarding process on Sunday, several different folks recommended Jack’s Bar-B-Que and Martin’s BBQ Joint. It is amazing how many people have strong opinions about what barbecue shack is the best.
