2017 Week 9 in Review

The team worked late this week to get our next platform release ready for final QA. The software biz is a schedule of give and take, and it was more on the take this week. The upshot is that we head into next week in decent shape.

This weekend was nearly a washout. I made zero progress on the playhouse due to rain both Saturday and Sunday mornings. Instead, I came into work for a couple of hours to clean and rearrange the office. In the process, I loaded up two large bags with books that I really need to get rid of. I have a hard time getting rid of physical books, but I just don’t have the room at work or at home to store them. It’s also unlikely I’ll re-read 90% of them. So, off they go.

The weather turned decent Sunday afternoon, so Grey and I spent the afternoon together at a couple of parks. We played zombie tag and hide-and-seek.

I’m in the market for a new Kindle. I have the 3rd Gen Kindle Keyboard, and while it’s a great reader, I have to think technology has significantly improved in the last 7 years. I have an aversion to an e-reader with a touchscreen, so that will either limit my options or I will have to get over it.

Next week I start another rotation as overflow escalation manager at work. I have mixed feelings about this, but they’re mostly good. It’s enriching to gain fresh perspective from the customer, and it helps clarify what’s really important in our day-to-day-work.
