Diary - Oct 02 to Oct 08 2021

Sat Oct 02 2021

Sleep 0600 to 1130. (5-1/2 hours)

  • Gaming at Woo's house. Played the first two tutorial scenarios of Gloomhaven: Jaws of the Lion. Pretty fun playing with physical game components.
  • Dinner at Teriyaki Madness. Was not good.

Sun Oct 03 2021

Sleep 0500 to 1130. (6-1/2 hours)

  • My first Car Wars 6E shipment was just Playmat #1 when it should have been Playmats #1-3. Sadge.
  • This is annoying: I opened up an SMCU Digital Savings Account. The interest rate for everything goes down as your balance goes up. So at $5k it's 1% and at $10k it's 0.75% But it's not "first $5k at 1% then next 5k at 0.75%" it's $10k at 0.75% so there are points where adding more money you earn less total interest.

Mon Oct 04 2021

Sleep 0030 to 0730. (7 hours)

  • I was trying out this deal ($10 Amazon credit with $100 Apple Gift Card). But you have to spend $100, not just buy $100 of Apple credit. I used some rewards points which brought my spend to less than $100 and so didn't get the $10 credit. I mean the wording is there you have to read it carefully and I think I've hit this before with Amazon specials.

Tue Oct 05 2021

Sleep 22:15 to 0330, 0500 to 0600. 1030 to 1345. (9-1/2 hours)

  • Oops. Chose the wrong fund when I reallocated my MS 401k allocations. Sell the wrong one and move it to the right one.
  • Apparently the $10 Amazon credit is just a $10 off promo code I have to use by Dec 3. Another bit I must have missed in the fine print. Definitely more trouble than it's worth. Anyways, will try to use it during Black Friday sales.

Wed Oct 06 2021

Sleep 0330 to 1230. (9 hours)

  • Sonic installation next Wednesday morning for my stack (3 apartments vertically), though the apartments above me haven't responded. But I'm ground floor so definitely getting mine installed. Resident on the 3rd floor is old and a bit senile so he might not care. Haven't met the people above me.

Thu Oct 07 2021

Sleep 0500 to 1100. 1 hour nap. (7 hours)

  • VMWare 15% sale. Tempted to get the Fusion 12 Pro upgrade (I have 11 Pro) but I tried 12 Player and it runs quite slowly which is why I prefer CrossOver -- almost native speed but suitable for very specific use cases.

Fri Oct 08 2021

Sleep 0600 to 1000. 45 min nap. (4-3/4 hours)

  • I'm taking a small project for HOA. There are some a few minor things that need fixing so I'll talk to contractors and get bids. There is some dependency on other projects (i.e. can't repair leak damage until the courtyard waterproof layer is fixed). I should look into something to keep track of project files and email.
