I blog about what muses me.

Something old; Something new (soon)

The week just past I got to enjoy my outside office a bit more. Interestingly an important component failed midweek. My external monitor just went kaput. Fortunately, I had a temporary backup at hand. The week before Marisa asked me if I had an extra external monitor. I did but not on site. I was able to retrieve it before last weekend; I kept it deployed elsewhere (the photo upper left suggests it location) for when set up shop at client’s office nearby. It turned out the newer MacBooks required another adaptor (which we still need to obtain) so it was not like I misappropriated a device from my daughter. In any event, a replacement screen – same size as what I am working from in my office, is expected later this week. The larger screen while useful to handle multiple application also enable a better outdoor experience to enjoy various media. An example includes the recent simulation MLB Dream Bracket finals which featured the 1986 Mets v the 2001 Seattle Mariners (Mets won!); it would have been fun to view outside on a larger screen; perhaps the replay this afternoon. I mentioned some videos in my comment to Odey’s guest blog yesterday; perhaps a reprise view on a larger screen makes for a more concert-like experience; something I continue to miss. And of course we will order cable Marisa needs as well.

    I feel like a simple city bumpkin with my MacAir and iPhone 11pro and a 17" TV. I was perfectly content and now I wonder if I'm missing out.

    A good monitor makes all the difference.

    Outside office with Big Monitor on a day like this is heavenly.
    Tech glitches make things slow but nice to have daughters to the rescue.
    PBS is running a 1980 Linda Ronstadt concert with a killer band doing her
    great covers and originals.
