Skudd's Grumps

December, 2022

Okay, now it should be fixed.

...or not, my brain is fried.

The SSL certificate is expired, fixing it.

When I was about to a good stopping point for installing the new garage door opener, I scraped my shin on a rung of the ladder. Shortly thereafter, I sliced the back of the ring finger on my left hand open with a tape measure.

In trying to hang a new garage door opener, I discovered that the "professional" company that installed the old one did it a very sloppy way.

Python dependencies.

Slack is telling me I have unread messages in channels, but when I go to the channels it's telling me about, I find no such thing.

I want more coffee but it's too close to noon for caffeine intake.

lueyfufu is out-grumping me this morning. That's not a good thing.

I don't think coffee will do what I need this morning.

Facebook is telling me I have new comments on my post, but they're comments I responded to over an hour ago.

When people dial into WebEx meetings using Apple Airpods, it's worse quality audio from them than if they had dialed in from a phone.

Slack is notifying me for messages that I am sending. Why?!

"Please see the Excel document above." It's a screenshot pasted into a .xlsx. That's all it is. Why does it have to be in an Excel spreadsheet?

When I got my new laptop going, Windows 11 auto-picked my username, which is not what I wanted. Now, to fix it, I have to edit a ton of registry keys to reference the correct username and rename the user profile directory. Tedium raised to the nth power.

For some reason, my mouse keeps changing the speed, even though I'm not pushing any of the buttons.

I just went to grab my coffee cup to take a drink, but the cup is no longer here. I already took it to the kitchen and rinsed it out.

I scraped the back of my leg on a small blower fan I have in my office. The spot of the scrape isn’t where the pain is registered though.

Why does the grumpiness need to flood in for the afternoon?

Did someone not tell me that today is actually Monday?

I don't know how I'll wake up beyond this point today.

I've almost made it through my second cup of coffee before 9:30am

My headphones won't go any louder. I need hearing damage levels.

The adhesive that the bandage left on my thumb doesn't want to clean off, even with alcohol.

I messed up my email this morning and had to regenerate the local cache for it. Now that it's downloading everything again, it's triggering all sorts of antivirus alerts.

Around a month ago I got a new fan to go on the floor in my office. There's no air flow in here without it. Early this morning I woke up to the sound of a cat being twisted until it screamed. Turns out it was the bushing/bearing on that fan having failed.

My mouse keeps failing to work.

I am getting a massive headache.

I want to fry some onions in butter just for the smell.
