Diary - Feb 08 to Feb 14 2020

Sat Feb 08 2020

Sleep 04:30 to 11:30.

  • Joe started doing study streams as he studies for MCAT. So far it's been chemistry and physics and all stuff I learned in college (if I could remember still) so not too bad. I mean, when you get down to it the GRE, MCAT and other graduate school entrance exams are meant to test stuff you should have learned in college assuming you took the classes and did your work and didn't laze off. When I took the GRE I didn't really prep and did well because I had paid attention in my college classes.

Sun Feb 09 2020

Sleep 02:30 to 10:30.

  • Alexandra/Anna Sub Battles. I gifted 60 subs in Anna's channel.
  • Gifted 50 subs in Neeko's channel on a whim.

Mon Feb 10 2020

Sleep 01:30 to 10:30.

  • After groceries a guy hailed me down and offered to fix the various dents in my car. Fix-A-Dent mobile body shop. They did a good job (as far as I can tell) for $1540 which is fine since it was like an hour (there is some cost to taking a car in to a body shop and picking it up a day or two later).

Tue Feb 11 2020

Sleep 02:15 to 10:30.

  • Have been playing bots on live chess, so they are counted as rated games. Starting with the low level ones I've won like 10 and tied once (for many negative points). Got my blitz elo above 1000.
  • Hair cut. Apparently Alex's may have to move because of rising rent costs. More housing in downtown area means more shoppers so building owners feels they can raise rent prices.
  • Had lunch at Urban Momo, which replaced Las Americas. Was good.
  • Received JTAS KS package. Original estimate was Friday so was worried I'd have to miss the P session or come back Friday night to get package.

Wed Feb 12 2020

Sleep 02:30 to 11:30.

  • God I hate McAfee. So many network-based problems since I installed it.

Thu Feb 13 2020

Sleep 03:00 to 09:00, 1 hour nap.

  • Latest DDO client is now 64 bits (BETA). Cool!
  • Looking at the Humble Bundle for Cypher/The Strange. No new Strange RPG products in last couple of years so could be dead and it seems incomplete (due to being such an expansive setting). Meanwhile a random amount of Cypher System products which I didn't check for completeness. Guess I'll pass.

Fri Feb 14 2020

Sleep 01:30 to 10:00.

  • Drive to DDC with Csr and Cjr. Left a little late (Csr wanted to make sure solar panels were inspected by PG&E). Lots of traffic and stopped once for Cjr. Got to Residence Inn San Ramon almost 17:00.
  • After Corina arrived Dave S joined us and we had dinner at Sachi Sushi.
  • Went to Con and got badges. Dropped off my Doomtown CCG stuff.
  • Back to the hotel for DDO.
