Adam Chandler

Picking up drywall supplies after work today.

Adam Chandler

The beauty of having a bare house is I'm able to run data cable and speaker wire all over the place. It's beautiful. So Beautiful.

Adam Chandler

As I write this, solar is being installed.

Adam Chandler

Big day today. Going over to the house to clean and then do some Cat6 punch downs.

Adam Chandler

Today's lunch salad looks delicious. Needs hot sauce.

Adam Chandler

Friday! woot. Busy work, busy studying then a relaxing weekend. Actually, my last relaxing weekend before house projects that are on me really start ramping up. Next week, Data cable testing & termination, painting, drywall, electrical downstairs, trash removal, setting up the server rack, weather station, solar, etc.

Adam Chandler

I woke up today thinking it was saturday. sigh.

Adam Chandler

Now that my server is finally setup (took about a month), I can finally reliably microblog again. Snowy drive in to work today. I won't be able to move into the house until March now. :(

I'll be running a setup similar to this soon except on the 60U rack will be all of this equipment except the Synology will be rack-mounted properly and on that shelf will be a printer, Xbox, Wii U, Projector and Yamaha receiver. Basically everything for the home theatre and network will be rack-mounted. Happy day.

Adam Chandler

Study day!

Adam Chandler

Entire site is fine now. Still having issues with analytics to troubleshoot tonight.

Adam Chandler

We're back! the server is almost back to normal. Hello world.

Adam Chandler

Adam Chandler

New Server. Time to make sure everything is working okay.

Adam Chandler

OMG dead.

Adam Chandler

Adam Chandler

Adam Chandler

The house is making some progress. Electrical is started. ventilation this week then insulation. Hoping to have all walls up next week.

Adam Chandler

YAY Friday.

Adam Chandler

It's Thursday. back to work. Honked at a person texting earlier. God the middle finger. It's going to be a good day.

Adam Chandler

More house problems. A room we thought was fine and didn't need any work? Zero insulation in the walls or ceiling.

Adam Chandler

Work in full swing. Holiday over, another year over. woot.

Adam Chandler

Adam Chandler

'17? i've been out of school for 13 years. jeez.

Adam Chandler

Quiet week of work but getting a lot of studying done. tomorrow night, going up to Quebec! yay.

Also the house is coming along. Met with the electrician today.

Adam Chandler

I survived Christmas but now I have a cold. WTF.

Adam Chandler

Bah-Humbug, back to work tomorrow!

Adam Chandler

Hey it's Friday!

Adam Chandler

Feels like Friday

Adam Chandler

Windows go in next week. Framing done. Exterior door hung. It's Thursday. Hopped up on coffee.

Adam Chandler

Progress on the house. Very slow. So much for Christmas @ home.

Adam Chandler

Work. work.

What need doing?

Adam Chandler

Had a 2L of a 9% Black IPA. Heavenly regret.

Adam Chandler

Well, despite the furnace working its ass off and the temps staying high, I still had a pipe burst but not from cold, it just broke and luckily, the pipe only fauceted for about an hour before I got back from the store and turned off the water and it stopped. My contractor is to blame as they were playing with the hot water heater to remove it tomorrow. Their tools are soaked, no standing water....no more than 20 gallons. So Happy I caught it.

Adam Chandler

YAY Friday! I hope my house pipes survived the -10 Degree temps last night.

Adam Chandler

My house which currently has no insulation due to construction blew through $300 worth of Propane in 2 weeks. Thanks contractor.

Adam Chandler

Did pretty much nothing this weekend. Very relaxing. Now, snow day so I'm stuck @ home.

Adam Chandler

woohooo it's the weekend

Adam Chandler

It's Friday. Hoping to get some car stuff done this weekend.

Adam Chandler

My TV has pop-up ads. This is like Netzero but instead of the TV being free w/ ads, instead I am paying $1800 for the privilege of seeing stupid ads.

Adam Chandler

It's been 2 months since I bought this house. The only thing my contractor has done is remove walls.

Adam Chandler

I've moved from one desk to another @ the office. Finally all setup and ready to start my day.

Adam Chandler

The new TV is stupid. It's not OLED but it's still a nice upgrade.

Adam Chandler

Friday. Study day.

Adam Chandler

DirecTV Now on AppleTV is pretty amazing.

Adam Chandler

The solar is designed! It looks so beautiful.

Adam Chandler

My old house is now completely empty. Time to organize the temporary living and wait for my contractor to finish so I can move into my new place.

Adam Chandler

I have been completely underwater with things going on since I got back from th is trip. Setting up a new house, moving, new role @ work, studying for PMP test, cleaning my old place. It has been non stop and winter is here.

Adam Chandler

I filled up 4 U-Haul UBoxes this weekend. yay?

Adam Chandler

Hey, it's Larry Csonka

Adam Chandler

Tomorrow, I spend all day packing and preparing to move.

Adam Chandler

Solar Panels ordered for January install. Range hood ordered, propane setup, furnace serviced. construction started. so much.

Adam Chandler

Back at work. Nice vacation.

Adam Chandler

Last full day in Florida before heading home.

Adam Chandler

Adam Chandler

I'm safely in florida. I don't really post things from my phone so couldn't update you guys.

Adam Chandler

Made it down to PA tonight. Getting too cold to keep going. Worked half a day at work so day one was just a warm up really. time to read and rest.

Adam Chandler

@ Work for a few hours. Bike is LOADED. http://i.imgur.com/1CN7cnQ.jpeg

Adam Chandler

I pack tonight for my road trip that starts tomorrow. 1700-2100 miles on my bike from NH to FL. Setting the TomTom to winding roads.

Adam Chandler

Voted.

Adam Chandler

Ordered kitchen appliances. Feeling like an adult.

Adam Chandler

The car does not drive any differently but $700 later, every single fluid inside was drained & filled.

Adam Chandler

My car is getting the royal treatment today. Trans fluid, oil, haldex fluid, spark plugs, air filter cleaning, winter tires.

Adam Chandler

9 days until my road trip. gotta keep my carpal tunnel under control.

Adam Chandler

...Heather's new car is awesome. That is all. I think with a larger turbo and coilovers, we can take it to Wookies in the woods. Just needs a VR6 drop-in.

Adam Chandler

Played with the record player all weekend. It's awesome. Left - channel from the pre-amp isn't working though :(

Adam Chandler

So empty.

Adam Chandler

12.086 1/4 mile.

Adam Chandler

New Hampshire

Adam Chandler

Heather bought a car.

Adam Chandler

New Michelin PSS is on. hopefully my rear axle doesn't mind the different size.

Adam Chandler

Reserved my cabin for Wookies in the Woods 2017. Excite!

Adam Chandler

Watched Sinister 2. Not as good as part 1. Rob Zombies Halloween remake = aces.

Adam Chandler

Tire update. Not repairable. $210 for a replacement Tire + $40 to mount, balance. Sigh. I also forgot to ask Tire-Rack to shave down the tire to fit my other 3.

Adam Chandler

Friday!

Adam Chandler

Luckily, the tire is likely repairable. We'll see.

Adam Chandler

On my way to the drag-strip, I had the TPMS light come on. Nail in the tire :( Made it back to my home-town and parked it at the tire shop. Sigh.

Adam Chandler

finally ordered a record player.

Adam Chandler

5 YouTube videos done tonight, new Flickr photos uploaded, watching Twitch and writing about my FHA loan process.

Adam Chandler

Back at work. Adjusted my budget last night. Money is much tighter after this house purchase.

Adam Chandler

Whoa, I have tomorrow off.

Adam Chandler

Homeowner.

Adam Chandler

More training.

Adam Chandler

PMP Training.

Adam Chandler

Montreal was a blast. I'm finally closing on the house this week...then begins the 6 week process of gutting the inside and starting over.

Adam Chandler

It is Friday. Yay.

Adam Chandler

The dog destroyed my $330 kilt while I was at work today.

Adam Chandler

I absolutely hate modern gaming. I get home at 5:15 and it's 7PM and my new game (Forza Horizon 3) is still installing on the Xbox One. I bought the disk, just finished the install and now there's a 4.3 gigabyte update.

Modern video games are awful.. Remember the excitement of getting a new game, rushing home and playing it? That's gone. I'm going to curtail my excitement, go make dinner and play the game tomorrow. What a shit-show. You know how sad I am right now that I've been sitting here reading for 2 hours and still can't play the game.

Adam Chandler

On another note, it was 32F this morning. My coldest ride on the motorcycle was 19F, or 35F for 4 hours but this was pretty chilly, more frustrating that it's only september!

Adam Chandler

Had a total blast in Boston. 80 beers on day one, 70 on day 2 (maybe more). About 2 hours of voice notes to transcribe this week during evening time (yawn).

Adam Chandler

Friday. Work almost over for the weekend.

Adam Chandler

The new Apple Watch is insanely fast or Watch OS 3 is just THAT good. I think a mix of the two. This is remarkable. Everything is instantly available, quick, load times are gone. Amazing.
