These were some of my first work on painting some miniatures. They come from a game called The Wildlands which I picked up around christmas (and haven’t played) After doing a few of these I got cocky and thought surely I can do some Storm Troopers from my legion set. I messed it up a… Read More »
Over the last few months I have been (slowly) beginning to pick a hobby. For decades I have always wanted to play those games with miniatures, but the idea of painting them always scared me as for some reason, painting something never stuck. I think it was an off hand comment my father made when… Read More »
Earlier this week I delivered my intent to resign from Lenovo on June 14th. I’m not the type to just quit for the heck of it, and I have something lined up. I’ve decided it’s time for a career change and I need to get out of the rat race of selling people things. Until… Read More »
During the Christmas break, I spent some time get re-acquainted with RSS reader NewsBlur that I’ve subscribed to and maintained for years after google did their best to kill RSS off.

I tend to upgrade about every other cycle on my hardware if I need it. So for example my gaming computer is still an Intel Haswell, but mainly because I bought a 6th gen Skylake gaming laptop in Dec 2016 when I was traveling weekly for a work thing. I have a hand me down… Read More »
Now that my two oldest kids are ready to drive and have their learners permit, we thought using my new Chevy Bolt EV as the trainer car would be a great idea.
I had an opportunity to do a road trip in the Bolt EV that I bought earlier this year for work and decided to take advantage of that. Figured I’d document my experience as it was pretty fun to try out. I don’t know if I’d do it regularly, but since there is so little… Read More »
