phone annoying 

Long story short, instead of setting up my smartphone with the new carrier, it's in wifi only mode while my old alcatel flip phone has service now.

Today I learned that even though the moto e4 supports GSM and CDMA, sprint moto e4s have a special OS image that will prevent GSM SIM cards from working.

This is different from a carrier lock, because it can be bypassed by flashing a new OS image.

I love it when a new set comes out and it doesn't break my bots.

Every address book program should allow you to provide a subtitle to a contact to explain how you know this person.

I've got like four Gregs that I've accumulated over the years, and it'd be awkward to mistake my uncle for that guy who did my roof installation once.

It's been a while since I've posted, but I've recently been working on two new projects:

* I've created a super simple RSS feed for keeping up with MTG spoilers:
* I've also created an RSS feed for the MTG Esports news blog, since for some bizarre reason they don't give us one natively:

These RSS feeds are generated by a cron job running on a raspberry pi and posted to a Github Pages site for free hosting. Quite easy and clever!

Creating an Ubuntu LiveUSB.... now there's something I haven't done for a long time.

It was such a pretty night, I decided to do another leg. These short flights do give me a lot opportunities to practice my landing.


I was a very naughty pilot today, landing right in front of an airliner after disregarding ATC's instructions to go around. I even got scolded for it!


This sounds more like a FF14 expansion than a mainline game. :P

I guess the new set release has a broader variety of people playing right now. I'm winning a lot more on the ladder this evening compared to when I tried to play a bit earlier this week.

Tonight's flight from Richmond to Washington-Dulles went very well! I was very intentional about controlling my rate of climb and descent and was pretty happy to see the plane behaving like all the tutorials say it should.

Trying out the glass cockpit this time around and liking it.


This is cool: I found out how to mirror the display of my glass cockpit to their own windows, so now I've got my G1000 set up where it's really easy to read.

I honestly can't decide if I prefer the analog 172 or the one with the G1000 glass cockpit.

Made it to Richmond today. I had to use the autopilot since I couldn't see or keep myself level through the clouds. I need to be more diligent with my post-takeoff checklist since I spent about half the flight with 10% flaps extended.
