It’s the last couple of days to the year. What tends to happen right now is much of the media ends up looking back on the year and highlighting the stories that made news. Good & Bad. For a lot of people this has been a year of incredible change, not necessarily for the good. I know for me, there have been a lot of ups and downs. Probably more so than I’d like to say. What exactly will you be doing as we’re winding down the year?
For me right now, I’ve been doing a little tech update. Actually this started around Thanksgiving and is still going. I finally made a switch on my lappy to Apple’s Lion OS. This was a couple of days ago and I’m still wrapping my head around it. There’s a speed difference in several apps. Some faster than expected which incidentally is a bonus. There’s system access that is harder to get to – I’m not happy about that, but I know there are ways to get at it like I need to.
On my music front, I’ve been working on getting my marketing hat on and retooling my website. That’s primarily finished. At this point I’ll be starting to plan out several Kickstarter videos to be filmed in the near future. I’ve already planned most of them out, it’s a matter of getting the locations and video done.
Another tech front is the AT&T/Apple debacle I experienced a couple of weeks ago. I will now be gathering people who are experiencing similar issues so that I can start a campaign. Thus if you’re a ready of Single of the Day who has had data issues with AT&T and the iPhone, I’d like you to get a hold of me. Very specifically if it involves VPN use and phantom data, along with getting throttled on your data usage.
Rethinking my home network for backups is also in the works. In another week or two I’ll be adding a 2TB harddrive to the network so that all my computers can start doing automatic backups nightly. I’m usually really good about doing backups, but I’m taking it to the next level now. I believe 2TBs should handle me for the time being. Though I know before the year is out, it will get upped.
Yikes, in looking at the time I realize I need to get to a song. I have a film trailer I need to get the music recorded and turned in within the next two hours, thus here’s my pick for today. Me. Nepotism at it’s best…
It’s Do You Want To Play – NFL. Why? Well the next big sporting event coming up is the Superbowl. So enjoy the track. If you’re an NFL fan, you might wish to check out this website: nfl.hearjody.com. There’s a fun video there as well, with a fun blooper at the end of it. Get pumped for 2012. Get pumped for New Years. Get pumped that 2011 is pretty much in the books and ready to pushed into the garbage.
For me, I’ll be finishing out the updates to tech and life as I’m winding down the year. How about you?
