So I think I went too slow on the steaks. I put some pecan chips in the smoker to give it a light smoked flavor, which I don't think was the right idea. The smoker is designed for wood chunks and even soaked chips kept catching fire, so I had to keep the temp down.

The thermometer on the smoker is off, by a good amount so I'm not sure what temp it was actually running. I kept them in until they were 115 internal, and they were a bit more dry than expected but my dad absolutely loved them.

I did get a smoke ring lol. I'm gonna try one more time without chips and crank up the temp as high as it will go. I did a little test a while back and the smoker can maintain 259-260 at full bore with the vent closed.
Just put it in a styrofoam container with some dry ice and send it my way. I'll be the judge.

No way.

Your government officials will seize the steak and will say it needs to be thrown away because the cow farted too much.

And then a bum will **** on it after he tries to use it to shoot up but can't figure it out.

And then use it as a pillow.

In case you don't already know, Harvard or MIT (or both) have their computer programming courses online for free. I don't believe you have to actually buy any material to access them.

I looked into it when I was worried I was going to get typecasted into flying furniture and bumfuck nowhere Texas but then realized I ****ing hate programming with a fiery passion and there was no way I was going to find the will to dedicate hobby time to it.

But it's definitely an option if you wanted to teach yourself without dishing out the money. Pretty sure you can get C++ or some other coding program without paying as well or just find it on the high seas.

After that it'd just be a matter of trying to convince someone you know what you're doing even without the formal education, but I've read stories of people doing that so it's totally a possibility.
i don't want to get into programming, i just have a specific job in mind that requires a security+ cert which would also require me to get A+ and network+ first. i already have a pretty solid "in" for the job because i know the guy over the whole program. he's actually the one who convinced me/is pushing me to take that path so i can fill a position before a couple of people retire. he even offered to pay for all the material but i denied it because i'm bad about taking favors/handouts lol. i still haven't given up on the whole thing though. and luckily it doesn't require formal education, more so skills/certs and who you know. my guy doesn't have a formal education. there are people in that department of the company with just high school diplomas all the way up to PhDs

and all of MITs IT stuff is wayyyyy outdated lol

Ah okay.

I don't do tech, so I just label everything as "programming" as a catch-all for nerdy ****s that do that black magic bullshit.

okay but what if I want to shoot it into my veins?
I will send you some organic, cage free, grass fed heroin.






So Rachel has some time off left for the year, I have 5 days left as well and she wants to go to England very soon. We have an annual membership for the National Trust Sites and we want to get our money out of it lol.

I need a half day for the 23rd to do Christmas with her family, but she wants me to take an entire week so we can leave the 13th and come back on the 22nd.

I can't afford this.

Na do both.

But there is a small chance we will be buying tickets to get to Goodwood. Her old GM "retired" and moved to the government side of the aviation industry and in the most professional manner possible, told Rachel she needs to come with. The pay increase is.. substantial (but salary) and she would probably end up with 4-10s instead of the 5-6 day weeks that she currently has.

There are a ton of pros and cons to it, but government benefits, a $10/hr (maybe?) raise, and not dealing with union retards sounds very appealing to her.

We just lose flight benefits, so these $160 round trip flights to England will go away lol.

4-10's + $10/hr raise = **** yes

Just get a Capital One Venture card, put every single thing you can on it, and then you can still get cheap flights.

I've got a chase card that's designed for travel.

We will still probably attempt standby with United, but they are buddy passes so it's like $1100 round trip for coach, or $1300 for business class.

It makes a lot of sense for business class but less for coach.


Also, I found out last night a girl I knew growing up, her grandfather walked on the friggin moon.

The thermometer on the smoker is off, by a good amount so I'm not sure what temp it was actually running. I kept them in until they were 115 internal, and they were a bit more dry than expected but my dad absolutely loved them.

I did get a smoke ring lol. I'm gonna try one more time without chips and crank up the temp as high as it will go. I did a little test a while back and the smoker can maintain 259-260 at full bore with the vent closed.

I think work has officially sucked the fun out of operating a dyno. That's why they call it work and not "super-happy-fun-time" or "skippedy doo."

I looked into it when I was worried I was going to get typecasted into flying furniture and bumfuck nowhere Texas but then realized I ****ing hate programming with a fiery passion and there was no way I was going to find the will to dedicate hobby time to it.

What, you too good for introduction to vacuum tubes?

Also looking forward to the inevitable introduction of how you meet and then consequently blow it with "IT support girl."
