2020 Taxes Done

Finally got my taxes done for last year (filed for this year).

Nervous that we were going to owe money, with all that is going on and expected inflation, financial future is uncertain.

Glad we did not owe.

One cool thing I did was I took a drive before I started my taxes and walked through Alki.

Really calming and refreshing.

Two Weeks Last Workout

Been two weeks since I had my last workout, but I am feeling better, but definitely still sick.

Face is swollen, and am still worried.

Am slowly catching up with work, but tomorrow really need to get on my taxes.

If I get it done early, I will go for a moderate run.

Hard To Think When You Are Distressed

Pain still there, but much much lower.

It is actually getting easier to eat.

My voice sounds normal too.

But I was also able to think and focus on work. Still a bit off, but look at what I was able to do today.

  • Migrated my mysql databases to a faster server.
  • Got better logging on mysql servers
  • Figured out how to create a statically compiled vim so I can use it in containers that dont have an editor.
  • Installed fail2ban on my ssh servers

All that in addition to getting my work done.

Finding Slowness Cause

Been struggling with some slowness on my mail server. Grafana to the rescue, I found out there was high iostat every 20 minutes. Was able too identify a cron job from somewhere else sending email and procmail and was doing something.

Cycled the logs and changed the archive system and it was back to normal.

Easing Back In To Work

After taking most of the week off, I think I am ok with easing back in to work.

Still behind with a lot of things. Slowly catching up. A week behind though

Was going to walk today, but the weather not cooperating.

Looking at one of my goals this summer, dockerizing some services, I think I am close.

Finding Ways To Deal With Throat

Slowly finding ways to deal with my throat problems.

The salt water rinse every couple hours works.

CPAP with my mouth shut seams to as well.

Neighbor says it will be a week before things get to normal.

On another note, my mail server been running really slow lately. Found some high iowait issues. May need to move it to faster disk.

I Think I Needed Sleep

Been struggling with a long sleep lately, been only sleeping for at most 6 hours.

It is enough, but I think I needed more.

But with the CPAP, my throat dries up, not sure how I am going to make it.

Maybe drink water whenever I wake up.

My weight seems bloated, but I think it should go down.

CT Scan Today

Saved most of the day to deal with a CT scan for my mouth.

I though this was going to be hours, and me being sick from the dye.

Not so, was quick, spend the rest of day nursing my mouth.
