Due to Ms. 7's summer camp schedules, my 6am runs have turned in 9 am runs in the mid 80s Texas heat. Pace is suffering a bit!

I recently did it for my current project, it was kind of achieving a milestone for me, I would have written 1000 lines of code in the time I have spent to write couple of lines in word.

Our tax dollars at work.
The Space and Naval Warfare Systems Command, which runs the Navy's communications and information networks, signed a $9.1 million contract earlier this month for continued access to security patches for Windows XP, Office 2003, Exchange 2003 and Windows Server 2003.
The entire contract could be worth up to $30.8 million and extend into 2017.
The U.S. Navy is paying Microsoft millions of dollars to keep up to 100,000 computers afloat because it has yet to transition away from Windows XP.

“There is the psychological discomfort knowing you should be doing something else. And we presume that balance is a good thing,” deGrasse Tyson said. “When something is out of balance you can get quite innovative in your attempts to resolve that fact.”

Rather than crumbling under that discomfort, the Cosmos host advises, we should embrace it and try to enjoy the ride. “You don’t go to the amusement park roller coaster and say ‘I want to be balanced.’ No, you want to be as unbalanced as possible, because that’s the thrill ride,” he said.

In fact, the pressure between balancing different tasks and parts of life can serve as the motivation to try truly incredible things.
Imbalance, he says, can lead to innovation.
