Finally back...

 So a couple years ago my domain lapsed as my payment method went out of date.  I never got around to fixing the damn thing until today.  So, I'm back.

Wife and I are down with Covid, both tested positive on Memorial day '22.  Here's hoping for a quick pass on this, I'm not enjoying being stuffed up and body aches.

Last Friday, I put my notice in with my current employer, and my last day will be October 15th.  It's been a fun but interesting time here.  I did learn quite a bit about some new tech in my time here, mainly working with Meraki and Cisco (yay Nexus!). 

I'm going to be starting with a new VAR company soon.  I've done this same type of work before when I worked at Accuvant.  This new place, at least from what I've been explained, seems to be better organized and the ability to help provide additional support from internal team members sounds awesome, I'm really looking forward to seeing how this works, because if the descriptions are true, this will be awesome.

I forget this thing exists for months at a time, but ah well. :)

Last night I was officially invited to join 'Five', a band here in Portland.  This group has some good season musicians who are past the 'lets make it big!' dream, and most to all have families and just want to make some music and have fun, play out live occasionally.  I'm stoked!

Boogie goes back to school in 5 days, starting third grade... time is freaking flying.  I'll blink and he'll be wrecking my car...

I recently started a new job, as I was laid off from Nike in the beginning of October, I started with Willamette Dental Group as part of their Network Engineering team.  We are going to be engineering a new SD-WAN architectures, retiring some old equipment and implementing new stuff in the next few weeks and months.

My kiddo starting 2nd grade yesterday....  every time I blink it seems he's hitting a new major life milestone, and he's growing up too damn fast!

Holy hell, I just found something awesome....

So my work doesn't allow cell phones to connect to Exchange / Outlook mail servers (security reasons) unless you have an iphone with mobileiron installed. Since I run an android, my options are just hosed.

However... doing some further digging (after missing a meeting because the pop-up reminder from outlook was buried in my screens) I found a tool that will fix that!

if you download and configure this tool on the system that has access to Microsoft Outlook, and authorize it, it will completely sync your Outlook Calendar to your Android!


Now... I can get notification on my phone for meetings....

So today was my spawn's first day of public school, he's officially started first grade.  He's representing pretty much every side of the geek fandom, with a darth vader jacket, an iron man tshirt, TMNT backpack and spiderman shoes.
