You Are Dead to Us

Today I retired my favorite wireless SSID, 404NetworkUnavailable. I’ve used that SSID for about 10 years. It was a good and faithful SSID, and it will be missed. We have watched many YouTube videos together and you have help setup many work computers over the last two years. I’ll remember all the music we listened […]

Goodbye MacBook Pro Mid 2017

Wednesday, December 1, 2021, started off like any more work day. I walked into the office and connected my MacBook Pro to my Dell port replicator as I’ve done for several years. I grabbed a coffee pod and headed towards the kitchen for a cup of coffee in my second favorite mug. I went back […]
