What is this "Normal" thing people keep talking about?

Well, for one thing, they don't involve Glitter :lol:



I need to go grab a drink. Like it's 11:45 am, and I'm ready to have a margarita or couple shots of vodka. 

Just spent an hour on the phone with a really nice lady trying to resolve a problem we just spent the last four days via email being unable to resolve.   She owns multiple sites, and of course, every one of her sites has all  the optional features, which means about a dozen different modules mounted on the wall at each site.   All that needed to be done to fix her problem was to reboot ONE particular module, but somehow over the last four days they managed to reboot everything but the module they needed to.  Spent the first 30 minutes troubleshooting and then realized that it was that simple, then spent the next 30 minutes trying to talk her through rebooting the correct device. 

Hung up from that call to find the next one in the queue is another nice lady who is often clueless.

Yah, it's Vince Hendricks aka Shakendara. Sounds like it may have been a heart attack. VInce was one of the good guys. There was a couple times I went with the group out for dinner on Saturday night at ReaperCon. One year was to a sushi place, I don't eat sushi but I went for the company & I got some chicken teriyaki. The next year we went to the Pizza place that served premium pies that are made in a stone oven & they make their own mozerella. Fantastic food but ever better company. For those that don't know, Vince is the guy in the pink shirt.


RIP, my friend, you well be missed by allot of people. ::(:



When I attended my 1st ReaperCon in 2013 Vince took a number of us (freshmen: Adrift, Sanael, Guywithcoolbackpack, ) under his wing and showed us the ins and outs of a ReaperCon making that first experience even better.  Seeing him each subsequent ReaperCon was like seeing an old friend.  I know I missed him the last couple years but was always looking forward that he may be at the next one.


You will be missed!

My son has requested constantly a “make your own watch” kit for three years in a row. His momma won’t get it because she lives and breathes on product reviews. They are not good for the kit. But I broke down and got that for him this year. 

Then had to add the tool kit needed to build the rotten thing. 

Wound up being a lot more than I planned but now the two of them won’t argue about it. Worth it. 


We got my brother a make your own space vehicle thing from Kickstarter. It was super expensive so I hope he likes it. Had to get the kit and the tools which like doubled the price.

Dang it...


Having a look at my mini spreadsheets and not only did I stop adding stuff to them a while ago, I didn't take anything off when I had a bit of a clear out a couple months ago, so most of them need redoing from scratch.


Not sure if I should bother, I'm pretty good at not buying the same mini twice.


I restarted mine this year. I need to get back to it. I have A Lot to put in.

City in Central Illinois.  Home of Illinois State University. Often conjoined with sister city Bloomington as Bloomington-Normal, like Minneapolis-St. Paul. Have family there. Their normality is debatable.
