So, I know a lot of you are stuck working from home as you pick up your lives from the recent story. Being a Floridian who is use to storms, and also working from home for the last 7 years, I figured I’d share some tips to help you out.
Good luck everyone! Hope everything gets back to normal soon!
I am now officially getting 10-15 calls a day from Blocked/Private phone numbers to our home phone from the GOP. If you’re sick of this shit, and have AT&T here is a quick trick:
AT&T Anonymous Call Rejection automatically rejects calls from people who intentionally block delivery of their calling party name and/or number. When purchasing Caller ID service, this feature is automatically placed on your business line.
To activate Anonymous Call Rejection, press *77 (or dial 1177 for rotary phones)
To deactivate Anonymous Call Rejection, press *87 (or dial 1187 for rotary phones)
I’m done pressing ‘1’ for English… From now on, if I need customer support — I’m pressing ‘@’ for twitter…
I love how football coaches make their students dress up in suits like true gentlemen. Yet, they are allowed to wear those stupid earmuffs head phones.
This right here is 3 minutes and 35 seconds of why I love the internet.
If you have AT&T/Verizon/Etc. and you are stuck on networks that are edge (non 3/4g) only, there are absolutely zero iPhone apps that work anymore. And when you are in these environments you become a rabid animal looking for free WiFi. And that free Wifi, 9 times out of 10, worse than the cellular networks.
Technology is evolving for the data rich, and leaving the data starved behind. If you rely on data too much, you are literally f’d once you are placed in these environments.
I have a feeling the survival classes of tomorrow won’t be based off of what plants to eat, but instead, teaching kids how to ask for directions and how to go 48 hours without email or txt messages.
If you don’t have Amazon Prime… You have already missed out. Yesterday.
So, for Fathersday my wonderful son Charlie got me a really cool gift. These are cufflinks made by Tokens and Icons out of official game used MLB Baseballs. So, as you can see in the picture, each cufflink has a MLB hologram, and also an ID that you can use to look up it’s authenticity. Well, MLB takes it one step further and actually gives you a date and inning that the item was used in. Cool!
So, it turns out that mine were from a ball that was ‘Tossed into the crowd in the top of the 4th’ on April 12th, 2010 when the Phillies played the Nationals. (The Phillies won this game 7-4, Cole Hamels was the winning pitcher).
So, I thought to myself — How cool would it be, if with my MLB.TV subscription, I could pull up this game, watch the top of the 4th of that game, and possibly find my ball… There is no way that MLB.tv keeps game archives that far back.. Right?
WRONG! Holy Cow! Mad props to MLB. Between the authentication, and the great game archives I was able to do it. I found my ball! What a special gift this is — and what a great fathers day memory. Thanks Charlie, and thanks MLB!!
UPDATE: My wonderful wife Jaime just informed me that less than 12 hours before this game is when we found out she was Pregnant with Charlie. How awesome is that?
Finder. File management seems like a complete after thought. Man is it horrible.
