Up early pounding the keyboard, cleared next week’s column (About hiring a car during the holidays), and made a collage for this week’s (The 6 levels of Features).
Then I filmed a video, “A Quick Tour of my Car”… but with a cameraman (my editing guy).
I have cameraman anxiety, like, sure I have 300+ videos online… that I filmed all alone.
Having other people around throws me off my system, I tanked it a couple times over the fall with Motoring TV.
So to ease into it, I made the video topic something I’ve done hundreds of times.. get in my Jetta and drive to Cherry Beach.
Same old car, same old route I’ve taken to make 15+ videos there.
Yup I know, jogging pants and ponytail, but, deadlines trump hair & makeup.
Then off the footage went, and next time I see it, it will have taken the shape of a rough edit, without me ever opening Final Cut. I guess the happy feeling that creates, is the trade off for the cameraman anxiety.
Today flew by fast eh. Then I cooked dinner, but forgot to take photo proof (macaroni & cheese).
And donated to Wikipedia. Never been a fan of free #KeepItFree
Tomorrow, I have a lot of auto writing due, plus a meeting that’ll eat the afternoon, and it’s Car Swap Day (Ford Fiesta), and taxes UGH (I don’t mind paying the taxes, it’s the doing them I don’t like, so boring).
See you online.
SSID – service set identifier
Big mystery solved eh, eye roll.
It’s like, a snobby way of asking the WiFi network name… “oh Clarence, what’s your SSID dahling?” *tea cup pinky*
I’ll soon do a proper post but until then, when securing your WiFi network use WPA2 (never WEP). Then hide the name, don’t broadcast it, “cloak your network”, practice security through obscurity.

I haven’t driven a Tesla so can’t say much, but do know that, all that torque is never bad.
Not all cell phone stores use live models. Most stores put dummy phones on display: same shell but no guts; fake phones.
Fake is cheaper, but Best Buy Mobile displays live demos of the most popular phones.
That’s why they’re good test subjects, all lined up in a row, handled and mauled all day long. If there’s going to be a weak spot on the phone, you’re going to see it.
(ever seen Motorola’s stab proof phone?)
