Mary Anne's computer: began El Capitan download and installation didn't seem to work, so I started it again.

Mary Anne's computer: El Capitan download and installation succeeded. SEP installation succeeded.

Sat 6

Breakfast: a banana. Ordered replacement dark brown cotton waxed cord for my Krussell Tumba 5XL iPhone 6 Plus case. The cord has frayed somewhat probably because I clip my ID badge to it and the metal rubs against the cord. Painted scratched screws for the bathroom light switch faceplate with white appliance touch-up paint. Shower. Errand: post office to mail a package of vitamins and skin cream to my mom. Walked Taraval Street with Patrick. Lunch at Grubbin': sweet mouth waterin' and plain san pellegrino for Patrick, juicin' and blood orange san pellegrino for me, bbq luau potato chips to share.

My fortunes: (1) You will have many friends when you need them. (2) You will make a change for the better.

Wed 10

Telecommute day so that I can be home for the Sonic gigabit fiber installation. Breakfast at home: two eggs scrambled with sliced green onions, two hash browns, one english muffin with coconut oil spread, 6 ounces of cranberry juice mixed with San Pellegrino. Spent most of the day cleaning up accounts on our legacy VPS. The fiber installation took about two hours. Installer Sa arrived at about 1:40 pm within the 12 to 4 window I was given. My fear going into the procedure was that the ONT and associated boxes were going to be installed on a wall inside my home and that I'd have too look at them all the time. Sa and I figured out a plan for the install and decided the best place for them would be inside the garage. We were able to use existing wiring which mean getting rid of coax and RJ11 ports. When he finished his work, he showed me the speed test from his Windows laptop: about 950 Mbps. He left, and I spent the next two hours rearranging our networking equipment. We still have to keep the Time Capsule for automatic backups. We still have to keep the T-Mobile Asus Personal Cellspot router because the new router from Sonic doesn't provide a guest wireless network. After many speedtest.net tests we tested watching World of Tomorrow (2015) on Netflix—seems to work but it was hard to tell if the quality was any better I guess due to the kind of animation. Dinner at home with Patrick using a recipe found on POPSUGAR Celebrity: Diane Sanfilippo's Italian-style stuffed peppers using yellow bell peppers. Played more of The Room 3 on my iPad Pro.

Thu 11

Breakfast at home: egg and cheddar on english muffin, 6 ounces of carrot juice. Rode Muni to UCSF Parnassus. Sprint standup. Responded to a student with a question about encryption. Met with some OSACA staff to help them better understand how to configure a laptop or iPad with a projector. Followup tasks to the meeting: labeled adapters, installed drivers for an ethernet-to-usb adapter, wrote cheat sheets for the laptop's Windows and Mac desktops. Resolved a problem with Megan's iPad failing to charge by performing a hard reset, closed the IT ticket she opened yesterday in case I could not get to it first. Followup with IT to clean up entries in our AD OU. Late lunch from Ladle and Leaf, ate in Saunders Court: pair: chicken avocado sandwich and brussels, kale, and quinoa salad. Tried helping Joel with a probably corrupted DAT (NK2) file storing AutoSuggest entries for Outlook and only partially resolved the problem. Watched the new OK Go video "Upside Down and Inside Out"—another amazing and fun video. Lots of computer maintenance: updates for Chrome, Firefox, Java; gathered IP address, MAC address, and faceplate info for an a security audit. Rode Muni home ordering dinner from my iPhone 6 Plus via GrubHub. Dinner at home with Patrick: delivery from Sri Thai: samosas, tom kha soup, mas samun curry, pad kee meo, steamed white rice, two thai iced teas. Watched OK Go "Upside Down and Inside Out" with Patrick. Finished computer maintenance remotely via Remote Desktop Connection for Mac. Stayed up late baking pumpkin bread.

Sat 13

Repaired the frayed cord on my Krussell Tumba 5XL case for my iPhone 6 Plus using cord purchased from allearringsandsuppli on Etsy, specifically STR9020CD-CF30. 30 feet of cord for $3.25 plus $2.00 shipping to San Francisco. The wax on the original cord was not shiny, and on the new cord it is very shiny, but I find it acceptable. Late breakfast: two breakfast burritos using leftover meat from Thursday's dinner, scrambled eggs, mixed blend of grated cheeses, sour cream, salsa from a jar. Checked on the garden, cut back neighbors' ivy attacking our space. Medaglia d'Oro instant coffee made with whole milk, water, and sucanet. Cut my hair, showered, cleaned the bathroom. Errand: dropped off shoes for cleaning and repair, walking part of the way with Patrick. Our gigabit fiber internet stopped working today for the first time since its successful installation three days ago. I restarted our Sonic router and my computer and then it began working properly again. Patrick's computer started working correctly without restarting, so either restarting the router fixed it or Sonic coincidentally resolved something on their end while I troubleshot. Walked to McCoppin Square then home. Afternoon snack: tortilla chips with leftover red beans as a dip, grape soda with Stevia. Continued editing a new novel by Patrick: chapter 18, pass 2. Dinner at home with Patrick: leftovers. Finished editing a new novel by Patrick: chapter 18, pass 2.

This was our second time at this restaurant and we liked it a lot again. Very nice service and terrific food at reasonable prices. $45 before a $10 tip. We talked mostly about Patrick's new novel.

Mon 15

Troubleshot several computer problems on my MacBook Air. One problem was that SpiderOak kept spinning and never finishing. I tried a dirty reinstall which failed. I tried a clean reinstall which failed. I uninstalled SpiderOak and that fixed it. The other problem was that Office 2016 encountered an unknown error while attempting to download updates. I could tell it had something to do with DNS and found an answer on the web which fixed it: add 8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4 to your DNS configuration—weird. Rode Muni L to Proposition Chicken. Had fried chicken as a salad with a half and half: about $17. Food was tasty and seemed very high quality. Decor is stylish, clean. Rode Muni F to Pier 39. I encountered Jason S and chatted briefly with him before he alighted a few stops later. Pier 39 advertised a tulip display which I was hoping to shoot photos of. There were indeed many tulips. I was hoping for something akin to the Flower and Garden Show or the Bellagio Conservatory but expected the worst because I could find nothing on the web that indicated it was worthwhile. It is indeed a disappointing show as flower events go. I can't recall the last time I browsed at Pier 39 and saw the sea lions, so I did so and found it to be awful. I took some photos throughout but am not very excited about them. They are just like every other tourist's photos. Afterwards I shopped in Union Square, finding hardware at Cole Hardware to mount Patrick's mirror in my bedroom and purchasing more 3M Command Strip hooks at The Container Store. Rode Muni home. Rested. Dinner at home with Patrick: indian-spiced chard with tofu, white wine. Watched about half of The Never-Ending Story (1984) on Netflix DVD with Patrick.

Late lunch at the JCC: tuna melt with cheddar, side salad, water. The cafe in the JCC has a new menu.
