Catch Up Post, Yeah I’m Still Alive!
It’s been far too long since my last blog post so I thought I’d do a summary post detailing what’s been going on with my life…
Decided to try the iPad out again. Picked up a 32GB Wi-Fi unit and I’ll have to admit it’s far superior to the Gen 1 device I had years ago. Better screen, faster performance, and great battery life. I also purchased a Logitech Ultrathin Keyboard Cover and the combination is great! I find myself using the pair in meetings and when I’m out and about wanting to get online.
To go along with the iPad I added a Verizon “Jetpack” 4g Mi-Fi device to the tool kit. After finding out my internal aircard in the trusty Lenovo X200 was not capable of being upgraded to a 4g data unit I took the plunge. This is the device to have for mobile data. Initially the battery life was pretty sub-par but the addition of the extended battery gives me all the time I need and the speeds are nothing short of amazing.
My son & I attended Dig IN A Taste of Indiana and I was VERY impressed with the event. GREAT food and a lot of variety. We’re going to make this an annual event and I encourage you to check it out next year (August 25, 2013).
International Geocaching Day was on August 18 and we made sure to log a cache that day to get a special badge on our online account. The 2 caches we manage also got a lot of activity that day from the event.
Devour Downtown has come and gone. I was only able to make it to one place this year but Smokehouse on Shelby was a real treat.
If you’re looking for a location based app for your reminders the Checkmark app for the iPhone is one to check out (no pun intended). It reminds you of things when you are at a specific location vs date and time. Very handy when you want to be reminded to do something when you get home or arrive at the office.
I’m working downtown with a new client and spending a few days during the week down ther . It’s been a while sine I’ve spent this much downtown and I’m really happy to be doing it again. Speaking of Downtown I’ve been going to King David Hot Dogs on a semi-regular basis. Not only is it a quick eat it’s delicious! This is not your ordinary wiener. This thing is a 1/4 pound beef dog that will fill you up.
I’m sure I’m missing a few things but as you can see the summer has been a busy one. I was talking to Eddie V the other day & we want to start the Man fights Back Podcast up again. Been far too long since we recorded an episode and I’m sure we have plenty of content to fill a few shows. I’ve also thought about doing a weekly Podcast that summarizes the events on IndyScan.com. It’s still in the developmental phases but you might see it soon on the Blog.
Hope everyone is having a great summer!
