Hydration is pretty great ‎· orgmonkey

Doing #caturday right.
Due to extra work earlier in the week, now in OT territory. While I do have work I can do, there's nothing on deadline for this week. So the challenge: keep going and get more off my plate or call my 40 hours and leave early. (Of course, working at home just means I go sit on the couch instead of my office chair.
Maybe I'll keep working until the pet door for the sliding glass door comes in. Did I mention I don't even own a cat? ‎· Hey, it's CAJ! ‎· 1
Well, it only took a month or so for one of the cats to figure out how to get out onto the weird decorative ledge in the living room. Fortunately, she was able to save herself as there was no interest in me helping.
This is what happens when you take too long to unpack boxes: stuck kitties. She was eventually freed from her vertical captivity but I couldn't help laugh at the second picture.
Ugh. Torn between the need to clear my cache so I can access a system that had updates yesterday (that I don't use that often) or leaving it so I don't have to reverify my login with a system I use everyday.
Going through my Google Location timeline for November. Quite a number of the days have this amount of travel in it. And I'm perfectly happy with that.

Some days I remember that technology is pretty darn awesome. The left is the original document. The right is a screenshot of Google Translate actively translating it.
cool and freaky ‎· Sarah G.
It's strange though but it appears to me that the translation through the camera is routinely worse than if I just copy & paste the text into Google Translate. ‎· ronin
Not surprising; the camera image has to go through an optical-character-recognition (OCR) step. OCR's good but not perfect; it will introduce errors into the text to be translated. ‎· LibSkrat ‎· 2
I would imagine it's much better with street signs and larger things like that. I'm impressed at the translation of the dense text. ‎· Hey, it's CAJ! ‎· 1

Thinking of adding a eight-pack of 9V batteries to an Amazon order because I might need them. But if I don't, I *will* need them. And if I do, I *won't*. Schrödinger's Dilemma.
I did that a couple years ago. I’ve used 1. ‎· Pixie
I bought some 9v when I moved into my place 2 years ago. Because smoke detectors always go out in the middle of the night and I wanted to be prepared. My smoke detectors don't take 9v batteries. I have no idea where I put them because I've never had any other need for them. ‎· ellbeecee ‎· 1
I decided against ordering them. At least for now. ‎· Hey, it's CAJ!
This Google Voice transcription of a spam call I just ignored is actually spot on. Guess a computer understand another computer pretty well?

Nothing quite like a good set of instructions and organized parts. (New patio furniture.)
The wrenches were rubbish and no substitute for a cordless drill and ratchet set. ‎· Hey, it's CAJ! ‎· 1
One of my favorite things to do. Find an old song and see what happens in Google Play when I click "Start Radio".

I mean, it could be a new song too but... ‎· Hey, it's CAJ!
Wait. Das EFX debuted with 'Dead Serious' 25 YEARS ago? Crap. I'm old. (Currently listening to "Mic Checka".)
And I can't believe the amount of time I just spent trying to figure out how to indicate an album without the use of italics. ‎· Hey, it's CAJ! ‎· 1
The ingredients on my sandwich are thus: "Roast pork, crisp bacon, Jarlsberg cheese, German dill pickle slices, lettuce, our homemade mustard sauce, and topped with our own peach chutney – now a single decker on pumpernickel bread."
Yes, it is delicious. ‎· Hey, it's CAJ!
That's true, no matter how you slice it. ‎· Hey, it's CAJ! ‎· 2

Yesterday, I learned that the local AMZL delivery is not done by address but by geo coordinates. Which I find very strange since he had to backtrack on our cul-de-sac to cover all the houses instead just working around the circle by house number.
I had seen their cargo van in the circle and was waiting for delivery when the status changed to "rerouted...blah blah blah". I literally jumped up and hustled to the door to see if I could stop them from leaving but instead packages were being put on our doorstep. ‎· Hey, it's CAJ!
I continue to be flummoxed how Amazon does it's delivery in this area. (Being near a distribution center probably messes it up some.) ‎· Hey, it's CAJ!
So does anyone else take a picture of things with the intent of using it to zoom in on hard to read text? Or is it just me?
done that. ‎· ellbeecee
Yes! ‎· Galadriel
Success! The raised blinds may or may not have been a factor. #caturday is saved!
Fin. No more story. ‎· Hey, it's CAJ! ‎· 1
I don't understand how this is happening. I have purchased a cat mat for my occasional officemates. Did I mention that I don't own a cat?
Still waiting for the first volunteer. ‎· Hey, it's CAJ!
Technically, there was a cat in it for a bit. Then this happened: https://mokum.place/iphwin/1738964 ‎· Hey, it's CAJ! ‎· 1
I see you've baited the countertop with mice for your officemates as well. ‎· orgmonkey ‎· 4
This development is not surprising.
Whooo! Really getting into the Work@Home thing. Just put up a whiteboard to track stuff. Put it right by the door so I can see it every morning. Who needs Post-Its? (Well, those will show up too, I'm sure.)
I'd expense it to the company but what if they want it if I leave the company? lol ‎· Hey, it's CAJ!
