174 - Be Happy With Yourself



  • Happy Valentine's Day!
  • The word love and how we use it to mean a lot of different things.
  • Shop updates - making brackets for dust collection pipe, starting on a Thien chip collection baffle.
  • Brackets are 2x4s cut to shape.
  • Been watching The Office U.S.
  • Red Box is great, on average I think I'm spending half the advertised cost on movies.

173 - Autodesk Software



  • That scary moment when you have a deadline and things aren't happening as expected.
  • I primarily use Revit BIM Modeling software at work and I used to render 3d models in 3DS Max, both Autodesk programs.
  • 3DS Max is the most obtuse program I've ever used, and I'm good at learning new software.
  • How I've managed to create 3d renderings in 3DS Max while knowing practically nothing.
  • Revit rendering has gotten a lot better.

171 - A Restaurant That Didn't Go Above and Beyond



  • Went to a national chain restaurant.
  • The appetizer order was messed up, but fixed.
  • My wife has a gluten allergy. She stated as much and ordered a gluten free item.
  • The item was not gluten free. The restaurant comped her meal, but they should have. They didn't comp my meal, they didn't go above and beyond.
  • To maximize their return, should they have comped our entire meal?
  • Also, my run in with Enterprise Rent a Car where they DID go above and beyond.
  • While I'm  sharing stories, let's throw U-haul under the bus.
