Coming clean

Faced with several hours of free time, post prime-time, I had several choices with which to fill my time.

1. Pick a chore, any chore.
2. Watch a Netflix movie.
3. Read a book.
4. Get a little more value out of our Bright House Networks subscription (our local cable company).
5. Bring down a perfectly good server, configure a new one, try out new software, bring it online after four hours of tinkering – with the old software – and no outward appearance of anything different.

Why didn’t I just stay at work for sixteen hours? There’s plenty of grief there, and I get paid to put up with it.
