Memories of Before

I’m clicking around on Canva for no reason in particular. It does seem that I’ve been here before, but I couldn’t recall when or why.

Oh, look — there’s a login function and it does appear that my Mac keychain has stored a username and password that I’d used on here before, so we’ll give it a go.

Well, that worked.

Hey, look, there’s also a “All your designs” section. I wonder what’s there…

…and suddenly it all became a bit more clear, about why I had memories of having been here before. I was trying out this new “Canva” thing and seeing if it would have any value for our team or for presentations. In fact, I could even say with absolute certainty that it was on December, 20, 2017 — just days before The Fall.

Apparently, I was trying out a humorous visual aide for a talk that I was planning on giving at the end of Christmas when the teams returned at the beginning of the year and that I’d include in a discussion with onboarding of the Noida team.

Breaker of Stuff, Doer of Things — Bitesize: Enabling Efficiency

Probably only really meaningful to maybe two or three hundred people around the globe.

I certainly do miss being involved with the motley crew of most capable and admirable designers, developers, and engineers.

T-mobile T-breach

It seems like we heard about this perhaps a week ago from the blogosphere and even some mass-media types. I dunno. But, this came in this evening from T-mobile:

Uh-huh… and you’re just now getting round to letting customers know?

T-mobile takes the protection of their customers seriously… but not seriously enough to let those customers know promptly and certainly not seriously enough to prevent it happening to begin with.

A Woodworking Project?

I haven’t done any woodworking in what seems like ages… not since I finished remodeling the house we sold in Moses Lake.

But, perhaps with one or two of these and a weekend’s effort, I’ll see about finding a purpose for the Purpleheart and Lignum Vitae that I’ve had stashed away for a few years.

We Don’t Care

First, put a mask on.

Jonathan Pie, provided his own take during his ‘live report’ early-on in this whole fiasco, and I’d have a difficult time arguing with the veracity of his position.

I should get this, or an appropriate rendition thereof, printed on business cards so I can present them to anyone who argues with the realities we’re faced with.

Also, while SCC sent out their own update a few weeks ago about their updated mask/vaccination policy, the current order from Olympia (the State’s source) is more recent.

While we were, I’m sure, looking forward to not wearing face masks when we all returned to school/work this fall as learners or educators — even though we may be fully vaccinated — those various organizational guidelines are overridden by the new orders.

Because it seems many people need to have a picture drawn for them, I’m all out of puppet and crayons, but here’s a picture I’ve found for everyone:
