    Took a week off of work to go to my other house in Florida.  Spent the whole time fixing little things and getting it settled.  My wife saw an alligator in our back yard which made her happy.

    While on vacation, I got a call about the part time contract for the Forensic Analyst job with the Parole and Probation Board.  So now I should have an interview this week or next.  The only problem I see is that it will be 10-20hr/wk.  I already work 40.  So now I'll be working 50+ hours/week plus going to school and doing coding homework and driving my son to soccer practice/games 3x per week.  This could get dodgy fast.

    But when I am living full time in Florida, this new gig is a national company so I will have my current position on the resume, plus this one, and they can help with placement.  They also have 401k matching so I can just dump the whole $400/week extra I'll be making into my current IRAs and have it go that much further.  20 more years and I'll be all set to retire (again - love that I was retired at 28).  Woohoo.

    Finally finished my first REAL case at work to take a creep off the streets!

    It was a total nightmare and any litigator ought to have a field day with it :( 
    Supposed to take about a month tops.  I have had it since Sep 27.  Part of it is running multiple scripts that take between 3 and 14 days each to complete, depending on HDD size. Then I have to review all the images and videos found, and then review every single piece of internet artifact for each piece of evidence to see if any of those relate to the case.

    In that time I had:
    3 power outages in the middle of those 8-day scripts (in this case) running and had to restart.
    Power supply failure
    3 holidays where I wasn't allowed in the building.
    3 snow days where I wasn't allowed to come in to work.
    I wasn't in-house certified to work on cellphones so I had to do 2 weeks of prac-app, then a final evaluation. 
    Then I had to wait about 2 weeks for the head-shed to review and certify me.
    1 weeklong course relating nothing to the case and nothing I will be doing while contracted here.
    followed by 1 complete system crash that lost all the data .
    1 week of rebuilding the system, validating all the hardware and software all over again.
    1 week of vacation.
    Finally restarted it, got it done, and it has been in tech review for 3 weeks - finally getting reviewed by the Dept Head.
    Now it just needs to go to the Director, then I turn the evidence and the report back over to Evidence Receiving. 

    They were complaining it took too long to do until I explained the causes.  All they said was "well at least it happened on your first case, now it should be smooth sailing".  Holy hell what a fiasco. 

    But it feels awesome knowing some shitbag enticing and downloading kids will be in jail because of the work.

    Hopefully you get a backup power supply so that never happens again!

    Already did..  they had one sitting there under a desk, but had ordered a new one anyway.  Came in yesterday (already had other one hooked up for a month).  The new one is a MASSIVE server backup.  Completely ridiculous.

    It was unclear but "don't have kids if you want weekends and free time" is what I meant by my post :D

    Moved to a new area in the past month as my girlfriend got a ridiculous promotion that was too good to pass up so I left my old life behind and we moved in together. Now we're both more happy and while I haven't yet found a new "career" I'm wondering if daily fantasy sports and office pools should be it as I've made more than half of my former yearly salary at my previous job in about a month doing it, probably won't keep up this level of profitability but it's fun while it lasts and I'm definitely glad we moved, and the beach will be nice in the Summer!

    Can't have kids if you don't meet anybody.  That's the trick right there.  Just stay at home and don't have any friends ever, that's the solution!

    That seemed like a rather hostile post for really no particular reason, unless I missed something lol

    To be fair, Torinn’s original post was kind of rude, especially considering the  the meme I posted was in jest. Too much preachings in targ has had an effect.

    Watched the Falcon Heavy launch today!
    It was insanely fun, even if I had to do physics calculations while it was launching (Because how often do you get a real life rocket as an example)
    The two side boosters landed successfully, but the core engine exploded on touchdown.

    What the hell is the theory/principle that the more you carry, the more fuel you need to use to lift it, but then it changes the formula again?  

    Russian name if I remember correctly.  I keep meaning to find it because I've actually needed that example like 40 times since 2011 and can't find it on Google.
