an evening of mistakes

playing with a windows server i tried to do a few clever things. next thing i know it, locked out. can't do anything. after getting a SAC (serial console) i was faced with a challenge i've not had in a while. learning to do something new, quick!


who knew microsoft had such cool commands via command prompt. in the end, i couldn't fix my problem so had to re-image ... oh well. atleast it's a new skill.

hand is still in cast...few more weeks to go. frustrating typing with one hand and using a mouse with the left hand. bizarre.

right wrist has never been right, right?

So. Here is my right wrist. Nice, eh? Little history. Years ago I had two surgeries on my wrist within a month. Triangular Fibrocartilage Complex (TFCC) .. i had Arthroscopic surgery and then i had an open repair to correct some damage.

14 years later, a slip here, a fall there, and i'm back to incredible amounts of pain, unable to hold Jack, and massive discomfort. being right handed also sucks.

x-rays show no fractures or broken bones. MRI results show a lot of fluid around the, i'm now in a cast for a few weeks to keep it immobile in hopes swelling subsides and fluid goes away.

if you never stopped to realize how important your wrist and hand are ... and how they work together, it's pretty cool. unless it goes wrong.
