My current work activities may not hold much interest here.

I did recently finish a remodel that included building a new stage, interior finish, 4 panel big screen and a TurboSound / Midas / x32 mixer house PA system. Also built a smoking patio with gas radiant heaters tied in to my Ra2 system (motion and temp controlled) covered by a powered louvre roof. It got cold so I haven't integrated the roof yet.

Can post more pix if wanted,

Happy New Year

Been that long? I do recall someone moving onto the restaurant/bar business. Looks good.

Everyone says restaurants are so much work, in your opinion, which is more brutal, CI or restaurant?
Hey, careful man, there's a beverage here!

Bar/restaurant industry is pretty brutal with a high failure rate and lots of hours but I prefer it.

At least I don't have worry about steak randomly not working on the same plate as potatoes because the big spud lobby forced a bullshit handshake protocol to prevent people from eating broccoli instead.

That's how it seems to me, you have to keep them happy for an hour at a time while you're there, they come to you, their brother in law isn't coming to the kitchen and plugging in his own blender, and no one is looking at the menu and saying that the cooks at avs say you should use prime rib over rib eye.

Glad it's working for you. My brother in law has half a dozen restaurants in Boston and has the recipe to make them work, makes me jealous.

It's a show, there's a lot of prep prior to each performance, and you don't get to have a "bad" day regardless of how you feel. The show is 17 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Toughest part is probably keeping yourself motivated day in and day out.

On all the TV shows they use the word "passion". Oh you lost your "passion". You've got "passion". Blech.. It's not passion, it's willpower

But I still get to play with lots of electronics. One of my upcoming projects is relocating my server rack from the single 42u on the west side of the building to the two big dell power edge racks in the east basement.

I ran out of space when I upgraded my camera storage with two super micro 24x8tb JBOD storage servers

Cool. Thanks for the update.
I may be schizophrenic, but at least I have each other.

Do you ever have customers who order and then, their "expert" buddy starts talking about using different ingredients that can be ordered online for much less and adding a minute amount of some ingredient that will make it so good it's incredible, but most people can't taste the difference and then, to make it even better, they attach batteries to their fork?
My mechanic told me, "I couldn't repair your brakes, so I made your horn louder."
