I think I’m having a mid-life “crisis”. Not that it’s a crisis in any real sense of the word. The phrase is used when people of approximately my age tend to start doing things to feel youthful again. The classic example is to buy a sports car, and or get flashy clothes. Apparently, for me, it’s play old video games and enjoy old programs.
Because I’m struggling to come up with some longer blog posts, I thought I’d make a list of my current tools that I rely on, on Windows. Many of them are, however, cross-platform, because I tend to be a digital nomad, and having familiar tools is essential in this line of work.
I think I would love to be completely immersed in a computer ecosystem of one make or another. Systems where I can have parental controls, and email, and service sync, and MDM, and authentication, etc. I am just tired of having to cobble together disparate services and hope the integration works well.
In the case of Office Suites that also offer robust email services and generous storage, it’s really hard to beat Microsoft 365. There are lots more reasons to use it and love it, but man, sometimes it can be just a confusing mess.
It’s been a month since I started going to see a personal trainer. I modified my diet to be basically chicken and salad (but not chicken salad). My muscles have been sore and I’ve sweat more than I can remember. It’s been rewarding, though.
