    The pictures never do it justice. That hill is steep! Glad it went smooth today.

    Uganda in September

    Yep 100% the SEED program. At the time I got into it, it fairly early on and was only operating in South America. I was part of the Entrepreneurship program and helped put together a proposal to operate in Africa with my choice to go to Uganda (Ghana was the other pilot) and headed up a pilot of...

    Uganda in September

    I was there doing an internship setting up a micro finance program for a charity connected to USU. We stayed in in Masaka for the majority of the time but made regular many trips to Kampala. I was a relatively poor student at the time and my biggest regret was not doing a gorilla trek. We did...

    Uganda in September

    September doesn't work for me otherwise I would seriously contemplate going. I spent a summer living in Uganda around 10 years ago and it definitely has many wonderful treasures. Have fun!

    Vaccine cards are not a new thing. I have a long fold out vaccine card that I got when I was inoculated against a dozen plus different diseases about 10 years ago that were required for me to live in Africa for a summer. It didn't offend me then and it doesn't now. I just received my first dose...

    What are you listening to?

    I've never really been a big fan of Six Sigma, but it does have it's place. Are you already familiar with Lean? If not you may look into the Toyota Way by Jeff Liker. If you are already familiar with Lean, then I'm not sure where to start with Six Sigma, it is all about the statistics and the...

    Machine Shop Auction

    When it comes to auctions most things wont have much action until the day it expires. Seems like there hasn't been many deals lately so I wouldn't anticipate stuff going too cheap. At least this one doesn't have a crazy high buyers premium, many have been in the 20% range.

    General Tech What did you work on Today?

    It must be because you are formerly known as Vonski X. Since you dropped the X they must not have been intimidated enough to make it a perfect X. :rofl:

    Yep in general terms the company may be going and getting reimbursement from 941 forms (payroll taxes) to cover the time off. However, this is voluntary at this point (since Jan 1) and they may or may not be participating in the reimbursement. It is a royal pain to deal with. It also ends at the...

    That makes sense and is frustrating. Does that use the Vivint app or still the 2gig deal? We have only used the Vivint app which used to suck but seems to be a bit better now. I think they do have new deals where you can pay for the equipment and have a significantly lower monthly cost. They all...

    To be a bit fair, that panel is pretty old (8+ years old?). They have had at least 3 iterations after that one. Trying to sign you up for another 60 months is ridiculous though and I hate the high pressure sales. In full disclosure, I have a brother that is a regional at Vivint, however, I...
