COVID-19 (Coronavirus), Resources, and Technology

I’ve been working remote for over 2 weeks now. I’m used to working remote, but not quite to the degree I am now. There are a bunch of new challenges as a result including having more people in the household. So, this has inspired me to start writing regular posts with some tips and tricks for working remote, using technology to help solve the challenges we’re facing in “the new norm”, and helpful links to help provide solutions to some common challenges.

Cancelled DirecTV after 15 Years

There’s more and more compelling services available and we’ve been finding ourselves only watching locals, sports, weather, and, during Christmas, Hallmark.
