April 17+1 (New Tax Day)

So it appears that Monopoly wasn’t far off. Bank error in my favor? Kind of lol. The IRS had some issues with their site and in turn, the 17th is now the 18th for taxes due.

I keep trying to get ahead, but this year I don’t think I’m going to wait, literally next week I’m going to find some sort of accounting software that’s a tad more robust than spreadsheets, something that can track things and it will mean a bit more leg work, but I’d much rather get more put away in savings this next year + bank more towards taxes, this year I actually didn’t come down to the wire, I had my funds already set aside, but I’d like more breathing room.

Too I’m trying to figure out how I can work Church Hosting better, I’ve considered Non-Profit, but at this point with tax law changing for 2018 taxes, non-profit giving may not be a benefit anymore, so those tithes and various causes a friend asks you to support on Facebook, will be a thing of the past, so the idea of making Church Hosting a non-profit, won’t have many benefits to getting businesses to jump on board I’d imagine. No perk for them.

But I’m praying on it, working on it. Tomorrow I’ll submit, I figured since I had a rough day (been feeling off lately) I didn’t want to push it too much, sure I have 13 minutes left before midnight, but better to wrap this tomorrow with a fresh head and just call it good. Profits growing, pretty much every year, however, I’d love to see them grow enough to add an employee, or at least employ myself as a W2’d employee.

For now, time to wrap things up, after I hit submit in the AM and e-File it all away, I’m off to coding, doc writing, and working on wrapping up some projects that have been waiting for me to wrap this, then if I can get it done before swim class, I may find something completely mindless to do – do they still have those movie theatre places? ­čśÇ Night all.

So why? I like to think different. ­čÖé

What did I get? Well for you few who may sneak in from time to time, here’s what I’m working with:

  • Thermaltake Core V1 Mini ITX Cube
  • Intel Boxed Core I5-6600K 3.50 GHz, 6 M Processor
  • Gigabyte LGA1151 Intel Z170 Mini-ITX DDR4 Motherboards GA-Z170N-Gaming 5
  • Ballistix Sport LT 32GB Kit (16GBx2) DDR4 2400 DIMM 288-Pin – (Red)
  • Zalman CPU Cooler
  • ADATA Premier SP550 240GB 2.5 Inch SATA III
  • TP-LINK N900 2.4GHz or 5GHz

I have an idea on getting the Apple parts which will help with getting things like continuity and handoff , but basically an i5 3.5ghz processor, with 32GB of ram, nice case, good cooling, solid Wifi, and an always blazing SSD? Yes please.

All the parts are noted as shipped, should be here later today (yes I’m still awake, so it’s only a few hours into Today! But all things said and done, hoping it’ll be solid, too room for a few hard drives or SSD’s in which if I want to triple boot (Windows, Linux, Mac) I can ­čśÇ So pretty jazzed about this, going to then clear off my MacBook, do one huge “see if it helps” clean install, but it honestly may just be time to retire it.

So far in my late night working I’ve gotten 1 site optimized a bit, a caching server setup, 4 email concerns sorted, renewed 3 SSL certificates, and worked on a new email filtering service I may deploy fleet wide (which would solve so many issues, and stop spam!) but I’ve still got a quote to write, sleep to get in, and praying that Lilly feels better in the AM, currently on sinus meds (Tiny cold tabs!) and teething tabs as she’s starting at it again (she just wants these teeth DONE!).

Brief break while compiling is over, back to work!

PS:68 – One Eye Open

That’s really all I have. Tonight is some migration work, may take up to 8 hours, hoping for less. Have a customer talking to me on Facebook, his church site got hacked, and we have been nursing it along till he can do something new. Asking if I’ll be around to help.

This weekend I really really really really really really REALLY hope to get some rest. For now – forward onto battle. Have a happy easter folks!
