Back Home in the Craziness

What a trip that was, but now I am back and at home. Things are crazy here in California, and all over the world. As a result of that things have gotten a lot slower. What does this mean for doing repairs and getting things back out? I cant answer that just yet unfortunately. I am currently on a mandated quarantine for the next 14 days. I am stuck indoors and working from home. Thats good for the things I have here, but not good for things like getting parts and going to the post office. I plan to get all I can done and things will go out, but I just ask that you all understand and dont ask for the impossible during this crazy time were are all currently in. Stay safe, be smart and keep healthy!

  1. Caught outside of the country? I’m about to pull down my shingle and retire. I’m old enough, and I kinda like being at home after more or less 20+ years on the road. 🙂

    I’ve got plenty of projects starting with my ragtag assortment of Amigas. 🙂

    BTW, I’m rootboy on Amibay.


  2. Yeah, the travel for work gets old. The worst part is spending weeks at a time in amazing places but stuck working and not getting a chance to go out and explore much.


    • Exactly. I’m sure that you get asked the same thing; “Did you see such and such when you were over there?”

      My response usually being “No, I’m working 80 hours a week.”

      I remember having dinner at the bar in O’Charley’s, back when my bar tab could be settled over 1/2 of a beer (that changed 🙂 ). I’m exhausted and watching the TV, and eventually I wonder “When is this show ever going to end?” I focused on what I was looking at, and it turned out to be the “Budweiser” sign.

      I also fell asleep at a John Mellencamp concert (and with my girlfriend later on that night. She wasn’t happy about that).

      What is it that you do for a living?


      • No doubt. 🙂

        I was in Okinawa working as a contractor on the bases for Schneider Electric back in ’10. It was fun, Okinawa is beautiful, but I’m happy with staying close to home these days.

        Did you actually attend the Amiga thing back in March? Seems scary… I’m going to pass on Phreaknic this year, safer at home and all. 🙂

        My current project is trying to breath life back into an old ’80s lathe by way of an upgrade in its controls. Almost no documentation on the darn thing. And what there is, isn’t accurate. I’ve been reduced to probing pins and recreating connections to the current problem child, a Servopack DC drive. Bah…
