I have a kitchen window! and a dryer vent. Home doing the first load of laundry in literally 6 months.

Adam Chandler

My dryer vent is being installed. Can finally wash clothes tonight.

Adam Chandler

First full week @ the house. it's been nice to finally enter a routine. I'd like to start getting up earlier. Coffee is tasting great, and booked my flight to Florida next month.

Adam Chandler

It's only Tuesday?

Adam Chandler

A great weekend of solar production. Got a lot of house work done. Took another truck load of recycling (boxes), solar working, made pizza & cookies. Watched a movie. it was great to settle in. Just a few more things to do before it feels like a home.

Adam Chandler

Adam Chandler

Oh yeah. solar is on. producing more than I'm using. perfect.

Adam Chandler

I can view all energy consumption & production in my house from anywhere. The future!

Adam Chandler

Plumbers are on-site. Yay. In other news, awesome drive to work today. I love snow days.

Adam Chandler

Heather took her first bath @ the house. The basement started flooding.....10 grand for plumbing a 1 bedroom house and we get this shit.

Adam Chandler

First work from home day at the house. Lots of snow and the iMac is now setup so it's like the old days where my @home office is way better than my real one. Better coffee, too.

Adam Chandler

This house is starting to look like a home. Just started the last load of dishwasher stuff from the last house. aka mouse haven.

Adam Chandler

totally not online a lot this weekend. 3rd day of unpacking. finally getting close.

Adam Chandler

Hello from my new house! Got a lot done today but far less than I had hoped. Finally siting down with some bourbon and watching some YT videos on the TV. There's a TON of work to do tomorrow but I think by tomorrow night, we'll be ready to host our guests. I still have dozens of homeKit devices to setup and boxes to break down and kitchen work to complete. oh and the floor needs a hearty mopping. It's filthy!

Adam Chandler

Contractor, "Your all set to move in, congratulations."

Adam Chandler

1 hour until the town inspectors certify my house as occupiable and we have plumbers on-site and a gas leak. ....

Adam Chandler

So far, a very productive day!

Adam Chandler

Internet is up at the house, weather station is up and running so I'm now uploading data to Weather Underground! migrating all data from my dS214Play Synology to the DS1815+

Adam Chandler

Might be living in the house in 1 week.

Adam Chandler

Of my 142 AIM friends, 9 were still online. Old school man.

Adam Chandler

AIM is shutting down their Oscar protocol. Loading up Trillian and signing in one last time to grab my old buddy list an any chat-logs from back in the day.

Adam Chandler

Been eating nuts and chicken all week. my body hurts. trying to fit into my motorcycle suit next month.

Adam Chandler

60% of electrical is done. I did a really great job sanding down the butcher's block. will have to post a video of the completed product. started with 60 then 150 then 220 grit and softened the edges.

Adam Chandler

The electricians are on-site 2 days earlier than planned. Let's hope this is consistent with plumbers as well and they arrive next Tuesday instead of Thursday.

Adam Chandler

My contractor is seriously affecting my life today more than ever.

Adam Chandler

When coffee first comes out of the drip, you should wait for the run to finish because the first 1/8 of the batch is much stronger and slowly dilutes as more water is added. This guy skipped the line (me) and pulled from the first 10 seconds of the batch. Batch RUINED.

Adam Chandler

Tried on my motorcycle pants. They're unusually tight. Time to diet so I can ride home from Florida in a month.

Adam Chandler

Another day of house work. Finally sitting down to rest. Unloaded the rest of my stuff in the house and heather painted doors while I organized and did more drywall.

Adam Chandler

4.5 hours cleaning the house, installing appliances, breaking down cardboard, filling up 3 trash bags, painting foam board with fire-proof paint. Exhausted. time for dinner.

Adam Chandler

Big weekend! Tonight, moving appliances in place (Fridge, 350lbs, Range, 225) and then painting trim, doors, walls tonight. Tomorrow, moving more things on-site and hopefully we move in next weekend!

Adam Chandler

Woke up thinking it was Friday. My hands are still covered in silicone from drywalling the house on Monday. can't get this stuff out.

Adam Chandler

Since I really only 'tweet' from my computer, this page was quiet.

Adam Chandler

Was offline for a few days. Had some pretty serious issues with my MacBook Pro over the last few weeks with overheating. I thought cleaning the fans would work but instead, the issue got worse. I sent he machine into Apple on Thursday, they had it back here by Monday. Replaced the Logic Board + Heatsink. No issues since then. My warranty is up in 1 month so it was good timing.

Adam Chandler

Adam Chandler

6 days of painting is finally over...or is it. Will see tomorrow once the sun comes up if it needs more work...after sleeping in.

Adam Chandler

Painting is hard.

Adam Chandler

My contractor told me my painting work was terrible.

Adam Chandler

As usual, an absolute blast driving in to work today.

Adam Chandler

Progress on the server rack - http://i.imgur.com/yESUnPt.jpeg

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. :(

Adam Chandler

Adam Chandler

Heather & I have put together a housewarming registry for friends - https://www.amazon.com/gp/registry/wishlist/191RDCF7WGE42/ref=cm_wl_rlist_go_v

Adam Chandler

My day started with a leaky coffee cup - http://i.imgur.com/IcTzhSo.jpeg

Adam Chandler

Everything necessary for the new house server rack is now on-site. This beast is going to be so beautiful and be completely solar powered.

Adam Chandler

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!

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

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.
