My house was built in 2001 and I just realized that it’s the original smoke detectors. When I went to replace the battery one one I noticed on the back it had “discard after 2011” written on it. heh, oops.
Now I can’t decide if should buy a photoelectric smoke+carbon-monoxide detector, ionization smoke+carbon-monoxide detector, or ionization+photoelectric smoke detector. There’s lots of pro’s and con’s. Right now though I’m leaning towards ionization + photoelectric combo smoke detectors and just buying a couple of separate plug-in carbon monoxide detectors. Ionization smoke detectors are good for detecting fast burns (like a rapid out of control fire with lots of fuel) but photoelectric is better at detecting smoldering/slow burns. I’ve read horror stories about smoke alarms not going off fast enough because they used the ionization detection method and there was a slow burn in the house or vice versa.

Anybody watch Star Trek Discovery? Captain Lorca is a very… interesting… captain. Sometimes I can’t stand him and other-times he surprises me. And it’s interesting that he’s not the main character, the first Star Trek series not centered around a captain.

The iPhone X has a really amazing screen but an ok camera. The Google Pixel 2 XL has an ok screen but a really amazing camera. We just can’t win and have a phone with it all, hehe. Anyways I have the Pixel 2 XL and I’m liking it.

Wrote cool little speedtest script for work. It runs a speedtest every 15 minutes, rotating through 9 different speedtest.net servers every time (so we don’t hammer a single server), recording the results. All 9 speedtest servers are “nearby” so they have the lowest latency and maximum speed potential. Then nagios (or more accurately check_mk) checks the text file periodically, and takes the best download and upload speeds over the last 8 results and displays them and graphs them. The end result is a fairly accurate assessment of the office internet connections max download and upload speeds.

After 5 days at the hospital it’s just so good to be home. There really is no place like home. I’m so happy to have my family under the same roof tonight.

What a rough day, a few medical hiccups and a last minute C-section but in the end we ended up with a beautiful healthy baby girl weighing in at 8lbs 11ozs

We’ve hit some medical complications. Failure to progress. Traditional birth doesn’t look viable right now, I think we’re heading towards a C Section. Prayers welcomed.

Heh I thought the baby would be here by now but they apparently decided to chill after “Mom” got the epidural, which is exactly what I did when I was born many moons ago.
