You might remember that due to my occasional inability to regulate how much work I do or to feed myself, I was given a new manager ... my cat.
The rules are, I eat when he wants to eat. I break when he wants to break.
Today, he can be your manager too. I'll time-stamp each of his management moments so you can follow along in your timezone.

Douglas Adams Quotes I Can Remember:
"The ships hung in the sky in exactly the way that bricks don't."
"Let us prepare to grapple with the ineffable itself, and see if we may not eff it after all."
"I love deadlines. I love the whooshing sound they make as they go by."
"For a moment, nothing happened. Then, after a few seconds, nothing continued to happen."
"Anyone who is capable of getting themselves made President should on no account be allowed to do the job."
This just made me laugh 😂
My favorite time of the internet was before the iPhone or even WiFi, when people sat at a computer and could think before they posted something, instead of tossing off cheap irony while standing in line at the supermarket.
My work finally started to provide free feminine products in the bathrooms. Which is great, but I don’t even think in my biggest emergency I would use the giant “maxithin” pads that have been chilling in unwrapped cardboard boxes since 2002 (and were 100% in the bathroom while asbestos removal was happening). Don’t get me started on cardboard applicators. My work is a bit of an embarrassment sometimes.
@Nyoei Its a shame boobs are attached to women. If they werent we could chase them around without actually bothering anyone :)
Beginning work on a version 2 of my SWR+VNA meter (ROES). Using a new much larger full color touch display. I have some debugging to do but it partly works with existing code, so yay.
I will be completely redoing the UI to add colors and various graphical representations such a Smith Chart showing the complex Reflection Coefficient (Complex SWR).
I will also be adding an extremely accurate frequency counter up to 2 GHz to improve the accuracy of the device and include a frequency readout on the display.
Thanks to everyone for the condolences on our bulldog Meatwad. We knew he was sick and declining for some time, so this was not a complete surprise. Yet, his sudden downturn on Xmas day was not expected. I am still bummed out and that is why I have not been active online for a few days. #dog #dogs #bork #meatwad
