I don't use your application. Why can't I report a profile on your site????
FedEx Home Delivery is a sham. 3 of these packages in the last 3 months. Each time, the tracking is wrong and it's 3 days later than it's supposed to be. A box due to me on Saturday is finally out for delivery on Wednesday after being "loaded on truck for delivery" since Saturday.
I ordered from a company on a Thursday in PA. It's here on Wednesday...that's California shipping times.
Alternatively, I put another order in with the same company on Monday and asked they use USPS. The USPS box arrived today..hours before FedEx home delivery. 2 days from PA to NH via USPS with up to date tracking. FedEx Home Delivery 5 days and confusing tracking. Even went to FedEx yesterday and they couldn't find the box and said it must be out for delivery...it wasn't.
No longer feeling sick...that was a long 3 weeks. Hopefully I'm done for the year!
Of course the bike needs a $4,000 suspension upgrade.
10 days ago I got sick. I'm still draining. UGH.
That’s the percentage of Americans who are going with cremation after death, up from less than 5 percent of Americans in 1980."
That's because people finally realize the imminent threat of zombies.
Surprise, 4-winter tires purchased in February! YAY, $600 later. sigh.
Back at work, dripping nostrils. Fun.
Been sick for 3 days now. Awful.

LOL "download your case into the courthouse"
We cannot under-estimate the importance of Sam Rockwell and Gary Oldman each winning an Oscar this year. Two accomplished character actors who have spend decades in the industry are finally up to get their gold.
What the heck is going on? back in the day, rude people would touch your display with their fingers to point at things. Really bothersome..these days, people actually touch my MacBook pro display to manipulate objects like it's an iPad. I've had people pinch, zoom and scroll on my display 5 times in the last 7 days. A MacBoo is not an iPad!
55 today and 68F tomorrow. WOW>
Saturday at 7AM. "On FedEx Vehicle for Delivery"..Delivered by Tuesday
sigh. oh well, that was going to be a weekend project. 7:55AM "Sorry we missed you" there's a note on the door that they came and will re-attempt on Tuesday.
Today was a great day already. Got a company to stop sending me spam after 2 weeks of being spammed. Pentawards is a law-breaker on EU spam laws and I hope they get fined.
Incredibly happy to discover that Luther season 5 is filming now.
Ordered an AppleTV 4K..they finally hit the refurb store so I got one + AppleCare for less than MSRP on a new one. Finally some 4K on my 4K TV.
"check my baby momma" in my head for close to a week now.... help. https:/
That little bit of warm weather that makes you thinkWinter is over...nope probably 3 more months.
2018 has been so excruciatingly busy. Leave work to work on a 2nd project and then saturdays in school and still keeping up with youtube and flickr...the blog is suffering. I'm sorry. Lots of unfinished posts.
done with bike mods for 4 weeks. Sort of feels good to be at a finish-line for now. Once powder-coating is done, i can assemble the new luggage racks and put on new tires.
3 Hours last night pulling snow off the roof 26 feet in the air on a ladder. The body is sore, for sure! Sort of dire as we have 3 days above freezing temps so I'm hoping that all of the residual snow gets melted off and I can finally make solar power again.
My war against lazy developers that don't update their change-logs is ramping up. "bug fixes and performance improvements" isn't enough anymore. If you want me to use 150 megabytes of data, you need to tell me what I'm getting for that.
Can MacRumors go back to posting rumors about macintosh? At the very least, can they re-brand to be called AppleNews or something like that? The site name and brand is so old-school and they wonder why their comments are so divided. Half of the users are old guys like me who are loyal to Apple and Macintosh and the rest of iOS fanboys who think the Mac is old and outdated.
Going back to school tomorrow.
22F. Shorts weather! Short lived though because it'll be -22 on Saturday.
Missed a new year post. Sorry. It's -18F in NH right now. It hasn't been above 0 in days. Almost got frostbite changing the GSW oil in the front yard. BRRR.
Florida New Hampshire in 23 hours. Two of which was gas, food, dog walking. Exhausted. 1300+ miles in a day. 5:30AM. Asleep in my bed.
"which hot sauce do you want packed for the trip?" Very considerate GF we have over here.
Apple.com...pretty telling. If you go to https:/
Total Beers in the cellar: 1000+ sheesh.
4PM and it's dark.
I had a great weekend in NYC. I return to a $350 bill for 12 months of VPS hosting which honestly is not bad for a dedicated server + 2 SSL certificates but it still stings a bit.
Acquired my first media badge in a decade. Feels good.
Big 2018 planned for biking, Prince Edward Island, Trans-Labrador Highway, Puppy Dog Route w/o any breaks and maybe a trip down to Asheville.
Thanksgiving week! Looking forward to a little peace and quiet around these parts.
Battery tender ordered. Winter is almost here.
50% chance that we'll see half an inch of snow today...I rode my motorcycle. YOLO?
Trying to sell a car part online, "I’ll give you $70 right now for it?" I'm going to reply to them in 5 days and ask if their offer has expired.
Updated the CMS for this thing to the latest version. Looks like they optimized the design for retina displays (finally) and text smoothing looks better. Should have taken a screenshot.
November. Still riding! Love it. This time last year, I was about to ride down to florida. Not doing that this year.
Switched from Ulysses to IA Writer. Looking forward to not seeing a subscription prompt every time I open an application I paid for.
My MacBook Pro will be 4 years old in March. I've had this notebook longer than any other computer in daily operation.
Snow on the forecast....
Stuck @ Home today with the dog.
Friday, weekend time. Halloween motorcycle ride planning?
Easily my favorite Steve-Note only because how raw it was and unrehearsed.
Low of 31 tonight. WOOT!
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.
Closed on my house a year ago today.
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.
Finished the Hamster. Amazing day. I have blisters on my hands and my legs are still like gelatin.
I aim to finish the hamster tomorrow.
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.
It's taking 6 hours total to upgrade every devices in my house to the latest iOS update.
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.
3 Days until iPhone 8!
Last Cars & Coffee of the year.
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.
Lines blurring. Busy weeks.
Lots of motorcycle camping coming up! WOOT.
Red Light Runners :(
5 hour bike ride. Took 3 hours to go 30 miles. Found some great trails.
Setup the espresso machine upstairs finally. No more room in the kitchen for cooking but we're wired!
Long weekend, lots of rain.
Lots of Belgian Beer.
Over the last 5 years, I've been mentioned, cited or interviewed for 5 published books. Just found another one. Ego-Boost Wednesday!
Too busy Riding to Writing.
Thanks BMW. Had to strap a salad bowl to my butt to get to work. Really wish I had luggage racks.
The new bike is heavenly off road. Not so much on the highway but incredibly amazing off-road.
Downloading a Garmin App for my new Garmin GPS. Tell no one.
NEW BIKE! Gotta get in as much riding as possible before it's too cold.
It's going to be a busy week. Selling off a lot of old Motorcycle gear. Tons going on at work. just intense
Am I getting a new motorcycle this week?
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.
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.
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...
Fresh Sheets. Always a nice touch.
A week alone with the dog. Should be a good time.
Cleaned the basement last night. What a mess. Hill Farmstead fest this weekend!!!! yay
And it's August. Summer almost over.
from 93 last week to 55 this week. huge temp swing. enjoying the cooler weather after a hot july.
Going to a concert tonight. first one in 6 years. same artist I saw 6 years ago :P
On Vacation but still hitting that 30 minute SLA on emails.
