  1. Binge watched the first season and enjoyed it even though it was definitely more movie melodramatic Trek. Since I watched all of season 1 in just 2 days last week and then immediately watched S2 Ep 1......I got tonal whiplash. Even with the pump the brakes approach and lightening the mood....some of the things they did in the first season paid off. I mean...we've seen bad guy mirror universe representations of almost all the Captains.but never really the effect on the crews afterwards in regards to trust (although the whole Picard/Locutus issue did have some lingering after effects, but they were still toned down) It was nice to see Pike in the chair. They did a great job with the charachter and the Easter Eggs were fun.....my favorite was the uniforms. Going forward...I hope we get to expand on the bridge crew even more this season versus bringing in newer characters, but I'm all good either way .

  10. One of those teams won’t be making it based on their level of play...if the Vikings come back after the break healthy which it looks like they will....and they stay healthy....that 38-31 Rams win over the injury depleted Vikings and that Saints 30-20 win over the injury depleted Vikings is gonna be Pretty much a toss up because (my opinion.) the Vikings are a much more balanced team..especially now that the Defense is waking up....limiting Drew Brees to 126 Passing Yards and then Sacking Stafford 10 Times in the last two weeks. In the NFC...looking at potential playoffs...I really think there is no easy path for any of these teams.

    PCCB New Careers

    Great Job. I have to complete the CCNP Troubleshoot to finish off my CCNP. I’m more about completing the AWS Certs though through Udemy because I feel that a lot of the networking side is gone get offloaded not the cloud in the next decade..and there’s a lot of Cloud Network Engineering positions opening as of late. Very easy to do the AWS stuff too. Hit up Udemy sign up for an $11 course and you can set yourself up with an AWS Account for free and start playing around with it. Would be really great if Arlington does win the Amazon HQ2 bid. I’m just doing this IT stuff until my kids graduate form HS though...after that I’m probably gonna try and work for an NGO like the World Food Program.
