Signal Interrupt

Since the last point that I made an entry in my blog, there has been a lot of events that have gotten in the way of my ability to continue. Though it may be a bit of a detour of the purpose of my blog, I figured I would share the story, so that those who have stuck around since the intro don’t have to think that I have completely abandoned the idea of being able to write about my interests. Not long after I wrote the first piece, we had a pretty crazy storm here. Not only was I out of internet access for a period of time, but my home also suffered some damage as a result.

Outside of my home, which was passed down from my parents, we have a giant tree that has been there since I was a child. In the ensuing storm, it got knocked over and tumbled onto my roof. This cause a significant amount of damage to the roof of my home, and also created a full hole that the storm proceeded to dump a bunch of water into my home through. I had two levels of damage, to the floor, ceilings, drywall, and more. It wasyay-14375578-digital an utter mess the night after the storm. You never quite prepare yourself for trying to deal with the aftermath of this, and especially how you’re going to get any sleep when trying to get professionals on site, and trying to protect your home at the same time.

I must have looked like quite the sight when the construction people came to my home the next day. Water and debris everywhere, I hadn’t slept in almost a complete day, and just, all the bad things you could imagine. The funny thing, is that on that day, one of the cell phones I ordered to do a review on came in. It was like a mockery in a UPS package as I simply tossed it aside and wondered what the heck I was going to do to fix my house.

I wound up spending several days on the phone with my insurance company, giving quotes back and forth, trying to find a company that could do the work for the quote my insurance gave me, and a bunch of other headaches. I’m still in the process of going through that now, and wondering what steps I need to take. As an engineer, I look at the problem, and try to formulate the solution, but I’m no carpenter or construction worker, and I have no idea the actual amount of work that has to go into fixing the issue.

I had had the issue with the actual tree dealt with, so that’s a pretty good start. The arborists came and chopped it all down, and ground it to mulch. A tree that has been on this property more years than I have been alive, I was sad to see it go, but also a little angry that it had to destroy part of the house in the process.

A Smart Phone

I’m an individual who has always had a love for technology. It began as a kid, with watching movies that had robots and fancy computers in them, and soon expanded to taking apart the family toaster because I was curious as to how it worked. Cell phone have always held a fascination for me though. Since I got my first one, and wondered how this little box with no wires or connectivity of any sort managed to work. Needless to say, my first cell phone lasted about a week until I took it apart, trying to figure out the sorcery that drove it.

I, of course, went to school for engineering, and since that point have put my focus into the cell phone market. I work with some companies helping to drive new ideas forward, and bring even more utility out of them. In my spare time, I like to check out all of the latest phones to find the new innovations on the market, and what new features are being brought to the consumer. In turn, I make review videos, write review blogs, and try to make some sense to the layman about all of the engineering that goes into these new ideas.

I’m hoping that this blog will be able to bring you information not only on the newest cell phone offerings, but also as to myself as a person. I like sharing information with people, whether it be about engineering, this engineer, or any other interest that comes to my mind. I have a wide array of interests, and love having a place that mutually minded people can congregate and bring those ideas together. So this location, I felt was perfect to be able to bring those interests together, and to provide a safe place to expand upon ideas and innovation. I will be looking over some of the latest phone trends, and other situations that come about in order to make this a combination of blog and journal.

For those who find their interest piqued, I hope you find something worth following here, and that I can hear form you in return about topics or items that you would like expanded upon, or simply to come and enjoy the read as the days go by. No matter your interest, if it’s tech, phone or geek related, I’m sure that there will be information that will wind up on this blog that will be right for you.

In the meantime, I wold like to thank you for stopping by to at least check out the introduction to this endeavor, and I hope that as time goes by you find yourself joining me along this literary journey through interests. As I update the next section of this blog I will try to find something that’s a little more focused in order to have a steady information stream as I go along, as I seem to be bouncing across topics right now, which may be a little harder to follow.
