    And now what did you do TODAY?

    Yumi and I spend the weekend building a bar for the music/poker room next to the third floor deck. We’re Pretty excited. Gotta love Ikea. The stainless steel/butcher block island is a monster!

    What are you EATING right now?

    Looks awesome!
  3. I'm running this with Boot Camp (no VM)
  4. Need to install Windows on my iMac for Yumi to use. What is the latest advice for Antivirus/malware programs on Windows?

    KEF Egg

    I assume that it is the same as on the MUO. I have the MUO and have never had any problem. I can look into it. I don't live in an apartment so I am not too worried.

    KEF Egg

    The KEF Eggs are on sale for $299 for the month of July and I am curious how they might sound in my office at work. Has anyone heard them? https://www.kefdirect.com/review/product/list/id/1350/category/241/
  7. I would like to install Windows on an external hard drive and run via boot camp on my iMac so that Yumi can run Autocad Architecture on it (her computer is dying). I assume that thunderbolt is fast enough that I won't see any difference between running it on an external drive vs my main HD. Is that true? Can you recommend a reliable and fast HD that runs has thunderbolt connection?

    Jim is wise. I owned the 12inch pro but thought it was too large to be really portable. I sold it after a year and got the 10.5 pro and I am really happy with it. I know some people who love the 12inch since they like to use the split screen feature a lot. The Apple pencil is great; the writing is much better than most (all?) Windows tablets out there including the Surface Pro IMO. https://support.apple.com/en-us/ht207582

    Security camera recos

    Yeah, I would guess they would not. Is there one I can attach to the computer via USB or bluetooth?

    Security camera recos

    G3 or is G3 Flex sufficient? Thanks, I thought about using my own router but I am not sure how I could set up a router in the office. Even if you use the ethernet, you have to log in to with your netid and pw here. I think I tried and failed to do this in the past.

    Security camera recos

    I am thinking of getting a security camera for my office as I think that the cleaning person like to hang out in some of the offices with couches here. May also get one for the house since we have a dog and it's easier to check up on her that way. Any recommendations? I am not sure how the wifi with the camera might work since we have to log into the wifi here to use it (not just put in a pw). So maybe bluetooth may work better? I have a Mac at home and in the office. I was looking at Nest.

    Sweet! Would love to hear what you think. I’m really enjoying having the HomePod on the kitchen island.

    What are you Grilling now?

    Having an infrared side burner on the grill is pretty fucking awesome. Thanks for the tip Marc. Indirect heat @225F for 30 minutes and then a 30 second sear per side on the infrared burner.
