Playing around with a new weather API while I continue to wait for Google’s promised password reset link. God my email is going to be a trashfire.
So I’ve been eagerly checking my email all day for the password reset link Google promised me yesterday morning after I passed their verification and knowledge tests, and there’s no password reset link yet as of this writing.

But I’ll be damned if there isn’t a new invoice.

God these people are adorable. Hey we know you’re locked out of your account and all your stuff so we’re gonna ask you 20 really obscure questions about a credit card you used 10 years ago plus invoice IDs and we’ll send you a password reset link apparently when we feel like it, but you should pay us as soon as we ask for it.

I’m not kidding about that 10-year-old credit card question. There were several.

Anyway, I should hopefully be able to catch up on this week’s email next week.

Tonight’s photo almost didn’t happen.

John and I have been working on the new computers all day, which has been fun except for the fighting with Google over my mail, calendar and contacts part. Plus the AccessiB with Namecheap part.

We both realized we were hungry so decided to order something fast. I handed John his medium fry and said “Here’s your email.” Then I realized it was past candlelighting time.

Thank God Hanukah is one of those occasions where things are really flexible and the menorah can be lit until halachic midnight. Anyway, I got everything cleaned up and moved it over to the coffee table, and so we have a photo.

Hopefully tomorrow isn’t as hectic.

Current status: Waiting on a call from Google Workspaces or whatever they are now so I can trade the blood of a sacrificed virgin for regaining access to my account.
First post from the new computer. It’s set up enough for lite work, and I’ll be spending the afternoon getting the odds and ends sorted. We’re also waiting on 12 to 18 inches of snow to arrive in the next couple of days, so that should be fun.
That feeling when there’s a brand new computer sitting in its box on the floor of your living room but you’re still working on the old one because you need to wait until work is done to get everything set up.
I think I may have finally achieved my goal of finding Hanukah music that doesn’t suck. Several playlists worth, and not an Adam Sandler song on one of them.
OK kids, it’s quit-hundred hours, and that means it’s time for tonight’s beverage choice.

I decided to go with egg nog and captain morgan again because I really enjoyed it last night.

However, this should be interesting, because I wasn’t paying attention while pouring and so was way more liberal than usual with the alcohol.

It’s still pretty smooth though so all and all it didn’t turn out as badly as it could have.

Testing out post-specific syndication to Micro.blog and the like. Also contemplating what I’ll be drinking after work’s done.
Now that we have tested John’s set up, it’s only fair that I test mine.?
