Easily my favorite Steve-Note only because how raw it was and unrehearsed.

Adam Chandler

Low of 31 tonight. WOOT!

Adam Chandler

Like TARS, can we turn down Siri's enthusiasm in iOS11? It's not that exciting to turn off my lights and lock the doors. I want a more dry assistant that just reacts and hears my commands. Not one that's chawing at the bits to serve me.

Adam Chandler

FRIDAY!!!!

Adam Chandler

http://www.howmanypeopleareinspacerightnow.com - 6. Amazing. They're just floating over us.

Adam Chandler

Closed on my house a year ago today.

Adam Chandler

What a crazy two weeks. Huge work event, then finished the Hamster. Drag racing tomorrow and last BMW Rally of the season on Friday - Sunday then beer tasting with Chris Sunday. No time for anything else but work.

Adam Chandler

Finished the Hamster. Amazing day. I have blisters on my hands and my legs are still like gelatin.

Adam Chandler

I aim to finish the hamster tomorrow.

Adam Chandler

Going to be a super great week!

Tim Cook, "As a CEO, not only today but in the past as well, I think silence is the ultimate consent. If you see something going on that’s not right, the most powerful form of consent is to say nothing. I think that’s not acceptable to your company, to the team that works so hard for your company, for your customers, or for your country. Or for each country that you happen to be operating in.”

This is definitely one of those quotes that will survive long after Tim is CEO of Apple or living on this Earth.

iOS11. I'll never use all of these new features but it seems nice enough. I truly do not like the app-switcher, new notifications, control panel or the iPad Pro's dock. i don't disable new features though and like to let them grow on me with time. The under the hood improvements of iOS11 w/ security and privacy are very welcome. I am also very interested in having iCloud Photos talk between devices to save compute cycles.

Adam Chandler

It's taking 6 hours total to upgrade every devices in my house to the latest iOS update.

Adam Chandler

Also, hit $145 for YouTube Earnings for the last 28 days! In January, I was making $40 a month. Huge increase in the last 9 months...I don't think I"ll be at $450 a month 9 months from now but it is great to have that extra income.

Adam Chandler

3 Days until iPhone 8!

Adam Chandler

Last Cars & Coffee of the year.

Adam Chandler

iPhone 8 Plus ordered. The first time I've been able to get an iPhone Plus on launch day, aka the first time I've been able to get an iPhone Plus. As I want iPhones on launch-day, I've settled for the smaller size so far. Time to buy new mounts for my bike, car, dock for my desk, etc.

Adam Chandler

Lines blurring. Busy weeks.

Adam Chandler

Lots of motorcycle camping coming up! WOOT.

Adam Chandler

Red Light Runners :(

Adam Chandler

5 hour bike ride. Took 3 hours to go 30 miles. Found some great trails.

Adam Chandler

Setup the espresso machine upstairs finally. No more room in the kitchen for cooking but we're wired!

Adam Chandler

Long weekend, lots of rain.

Adam Chandler

Lots of Belgian Beer.

Adam Chandler

Over the last 5 years, I've been mentioned, cited or interviewed for 5 published books. Just found another one. Ego-Boost Wednesday!

Adam Chandler

Too busy Riding to Writing.

Adam Chandler

Thanks BMW. Had to strap a salad bowl to my butt to get to work. Really wish I had luggage racks.

Adam Chandler

The new bike is heavenly off road. Not so much on the highway but incredibly amazing off-road.

Adam Chandler

Heavenly sunday Morning Coffee

Adam Chandler

Downloading a Garmin App for my new Garmin GPS. Tell no one.

Adam Chandler

NEW BIKE! Gotta get in as much riding as possible before it's too cold.

Adam Chandler

It's going to be a busy week. Selling off a lot of old Motorcycle gear. Tons going on at work. just intense

Adam Chandler

Am I getting a new motorcycle this week?

Adam Chandler

I will say that it would be nice to have a MacBook Pro that has over 16GB of RAM. I hit the RAM ceiling and started hammering on the SWAP file pretty early on in the editing.

Adam Chandler

Last night, edited some video on the MacBook Pro over the iMac. At 3 years old, it still holds its own against modern high bit-rate 4K video but it's showing its age. A modern GPU would be great, as would Thunderbolt 3 and the 2-3x SSD reads allowed by the newer models. Still need a new notebook next year to satisfy my video needs. Now that I'm making $1500 a year on YouTube, I can finally devote some of those funds to equipment.

Adam Chandler

Did not make it to DC on Friday. Spent the weekend relaxing around the house. It was heavenly. Back at work. Ordered a Nerf gun for my boss. With great power...

Adam Chandler

Fresh Sheets. Always a nice touch.

Adam Chandler

A week alone with the dog. Should be a good time.

Adam Chandler

Cleaned the basement last night. What a mess. Hill Farmstead fest this weekend!!!! yay

Adam Chandler

And it's August. Summer almost over.

Adam Chandler

from 93 last week to 55 this week. huge temp swing. enjoying the cooler weather after a hot july.

Adam Chandler

Going to a concert tonight. first one in 6 years. same artist I saw 6 years ago :P

Adam Chandler

On Vacation but still hitting that 30 minute SLA on emails.

Adam Chandler

Back at work for 2 days then off work again for a week. Lovely.

Adam Chandler

We have actually two new grills acquired. Weber Genesis EP-320 and a Weber 22.5" Original Kettle Premium. Long warranty, they look gorgeous (red & orange) and hopefully will look great on the back patio we're making this week.

Adam Chandler

New Grill acquired!!!!

Adam Chandler

This was an extremely long week. It's over, time to start the weekend!

Adam Chandler

Working on a PowerPoint that is supposed to not be a PowerPoint. Not sure if that one makes sense? Good luck to me!

Adam Chandler

I wish there was a self-hosted RSS Server alternative to Fever.

Adam Chandler

A little quiet here. Been sick the past few days. Huge allergy issues.

Adam Chandler

Apple has now priced me out of being an iMac Customer. I need more power every day despite having their currently most powerful iMac, they've finally risen to the occasion to meet my needs. The iMac Pro starts at $4999, more than I take home in 3 months. Sigh.

Adam Chandler

Saturday, thought I was going to die up in the woods. It was intense. Glad I lived but wow. ran out of gas in a land area of 300 square mile with only 3 gas stations. Pittsburgh NH and all of the logging roads are just insane. can't wait to go back.

Adam Chandler

What a quick work week. It's Friday already!!!!

Adam Chandler

605 20 megapixel RAW Images + 200 gigabytes of 4K Video and 10,000 Time Lapse images. This is what the 4Ghz Core i7 iMac was purchased for. It is a freaking workhorse. Utilizing 80% of the 32GB of RAM, 80% CPU load @ all 8 cores.

Adam Chandler

Back from Belgium. Very tired.

Adam Chandler

http://en.bierpallieters.be/node/8

Haven't been since 2012!!!!

Adam Chandler

So much to do tonight.

Adam Chandler

In two days, I leave for Belgium.

Adam Chandler

It's Friday, Friday!

Adam Chandler

So pleased with a daydream that now living is no good
I took off my shoes and walked into the woods
I felt lost and found with every step I took

Adam Chandler

The basement is finally organized again. Time to go back to saving money so I can get the drywall done, painted, flooring down, ceiling finished and then we can move beer in.

Adam Chandler

The President and I will be in Belgium at the same time.

Adam Chandler

Photos were posted early this morning. Love the progress we made on the basement. Back at work today, meetings writing, research, emails. back down to 5 unread emails. the last few are going to take a lot of time. Hey, it's lunch time!

Adam Chandler

4 days later, the basement is framed and walls are up!

Adam Chandler

I have a few car mods still left to do. Sound Damping in the trunk is a big one. Oh and the turbo blanket. Then I have to do an air filter install video for the bike.

Adam Chandler

The weather is now better but now allergies are starting. WTF.

Adam Chandler

Did enough changes to the Golf R, I have 14 YouTube videos queued up! Should be enough to nearly break even on the actual parts..not immediately but throughout the year.

Still have one more part to do w/ video but it'll have to be next weekend.

Adam Chandler

I'm sick of winter already. snow falling, cold, rained every day for last 2 weeks. WTF.

Adam Chandler

Weekend Update. Front brakes are done, Stainless Steel lines all around, Oil, Oil Filter, Air Filter, Spark Plugs, Cabin filter. Once a 14mm Triple Square comes in, I can do the rear brakes and then bleed and replace oil.

Adam Chandler

Tomorrow is Friday. ending the day with a beer and Twitch. going to be a busy weekend. New spark plugs and LEDs for heather's car arrived.

Adam Chandler

Rain forecast for this weekend :(

Adam Chandler

Huge amount of Golf R work this week. Excite!!!!

Adam Chandler

It's going to rain all week. Bummer. No solar, no outside work possible.

Adam Chandler

Good thing about being home on a weekday? No Harley Riders screaming down the road as these guys only ride on the weekends.

Adam Chandler

It's Monday. Had to stay home today with the dog due to scheduling problems. Good thing my iMac at home is 25% faster than my work laptop. It's a productive day already.

Adam Chandler

Friday? YES.

Adam Chandler

Excited to grab a keg of Helles today from HF after work.

Adam Chandler

Rough day today.

Adam Chandler

Back @ work!

Adam Chandler

All of the videos from the trips are edited!!!! It's 200 gigabytes of data I'm uploading to Youtube which will take about 2.5 days on my connection. Lot s of content!

Adam Chandler

Finished 9 out of 12 videos from the trip. Will have to publish one per day as no one wants to watch 4 hours of content in one day.

Adam Chandler

Not that anyone asked for 19 straight hours of a recorded version of my road trip, but I'm uploading it anyway. 120 Gigabytes, 19.5 hours. 5-7 hours are missing due to dead batteries. Need to buy a 2nd Tomtom bandit battery for next trip so I can keep swapping them.

Adam Chandler

Photos up! https://www.flickr.com/photos/adamjackson/albums/72157682817028346 Not sure how long it'll take me to get through 700 gigabytes of data.

Adam Chandler

Home. It's 35 and wet today. glad I'm not riding all day.

Adam Chandler

Sorry for lack of updates. been riding for 3 days. just made it to Roanoke.

Adam Chandler

Productive 3 hours waiting on the bike. Edited about 40 photos, put together 2 total videos and did a computer backup w/ duplication of all captured media so far. Oh and read the news.

Adam Chandler

More photos up. Editing videos while waiting for an $850 BMW Service on my bike. 18K miles, transmission fluid, brake fluid, new tires new crash bars.

Adam Chandler

Some photos already up - https://www.flickr.com/photos/adamjackson/?

Adam Chandler

Today, shave my head, Wash the bike, work out with dad, have dinner with he sisters and get ready for the road trip tomorrow.

Adam Chandler

Hello from Florida. Last night w/ dad and the boys was a blast. The bike is loaded up, I fixed a few of the issues but couldn't get the new crash bars installed. All loaded up and ready to go to BMW.

Adam Chandler

Hello from Boston Airport. Had a delicious smoothie. I hope the bike starts when I get to Florida.

Adam Chandler

Waking up at 4am to catch a flight down to Florida. Bike road trip 2017! It's time!!!!!!

Adam Chandler

Adam Chandler

Adam Chandler

Saw a new GS Adventure ride past my house early. soon brother. soon.

Adam Chandler

smoothie time

Adam Chandler

Yesterday was the best day of solar so far - http://i.imgur.com/wCYfmdX.png

Adam Chandler

Now that CA's drought is over, are people just going to go back to the way things were or will plans to avoid this never happening again take place? Desalinization initiatives, eliminating fresh-water flowing into the sea, switching to low-water gardens & lawns, pulling back on water sucking vegetables grown in the I-5 corridor, resolving all of the water-rights acts that farmers are grandfathered into? Is this still a priority for CA's government or is it "well, we have snow now so let's just go back to doing nothing"?

Adam Chandler

Spent most of the weekend cleaning house and watching movies. Cleaned the outside up a bit, finally finished all of the house laundry..like all of it. 6 days until the trip to Florida.
