Upgrade Notes – Day 1

Well, today is the first day of our latest big project at work, a system upgrade.

This project will probably take the better part of a year to complete.

I really don’t plan on keeping notes on this blog for every single day of the project and I will not be talking about details. What I was going to write about was the process is. How does it affect me? How much less time will I get to spend on other things?

With those questions being raised, I am looking forward to it.

For me, these things are always great learning experiences.

If I’m not completely exhausted by the end of the day, I’ll post some thoughts.

New Beginnings

Today is the first day in several years (days off not withstanding) that I am working a “normal” shift at work.

We are starting a major project that will take a least a year to complete and so I’ve had to make some adjustments.

This very first thing I’ve noticed is that I actually have time to get up in the morning and spend time writing. I can’t express how happy that makes me. I love writing. For the last several years, my work schedule hasn’t afforded me a lot of time to do so.

So, one of the first things I’ve done this morning is to try and find a replacement for Blogsy. Apple must be abandening applications that still work under 32 bit in the next iOS release. To be honest, I thought they would have already done that with a minor release.

I’m writing this using an app called BlogPad Pro. So far, I like it. There are a few things I’ll need to figure out. I had used Blogsy from day one so I am very familiar with how it worked.

My life has changed a lot in the last 6 months or so. Some good. Mostly bad.

I’m trying to keep some optimisim in my life so hopefully, writing more will help do that.

A Few Words About Love

I don’t usually discuss this type of thing on my site but I just want to say that I’ve been without the woman I love for several months now.

For my friends and family that keep asking, no. I am not ok. My heart aches every day that I’m without the one I love, my soulmate, my everything.

I don’t see that this empty feeling will ever just “go away” or that I may just move on and forget about the one lady that knows me better than anyone.

I love her very much. I think about her every single day.

I miss my baby.

Sorry. I just had to get that out there.

April Update

Well, a whole lot of stuff is going on around here this month. Minecraft is taking up a lot of my free time but I am going through a bunch of audiobooks in the process. I am also reading Kindle books too.

I listen to books while I’m building a world in Minecraft. It works.

I plan on keeping notes on work related stuff as we go into a major upgrade. This is exciting for me. I love updating software so this is right up my alley. More on that to follow…

Come on warm weather!
