As you can imagine this puts a snag in my fun with the blog. It also means no email gets replied to. It also kills the creative energy to design a pattern.
I'm not really complaining because I have a lot of friends who need jobs so I'm lucky to have one. Actually I probably am complaining but I'm an old guy and that's what we do.
The machines we work on generally do most of their running at night. The companies that own them spend thousands of dollars a month on service contracts. They depend on us to keep them running 24/7. Downtime is measured in thousands of dollars an hour.
While I was working last night I did a video walk around of the machine I was servicing. No reason for the video other than I was waiting for it to boot up. I receive a lot of email asking what I do for a living so I thought I would share the video. It's only a minute so it won't put you to sleep.
I had a few minutes before I try to go to bed so I designed a pattern that reflects what I hope to feel one of these days.
