Good sign that it will hopefully stick around in Ottawa too.
Uber might be facing its worst nightmare in Europe, but it just got a big break in Canada. A Toronto judge has tossed out the city's attempt to ban Uber (and by...

I'm with Olivier on this one. I could make a fortune if I could simply decide to "innovate" by ignoring laws and regulations I didn't like, or that got in the way of profitability. Let ride - sharing companies go through the process of having the rules changed, in the same way that everyone else has to.

My levels of patience for a particular future event is getting to near psychotic levels. Really there's a couple of things coming up that are spiking my impatience to unnatural levels. Thankfully one of them are coming up real soon (OMG BABY!!!!!!!) which should help distract me from the other one, at least for a while.

My zen-like calm has been cracking lately. Hopefully I'll get that to bounce back soon, or I might end up scaring the crap out of whoever happens to be around when it finally completely ruptures haha. Hasn't happened often...

I've never been great with waiting for weeks/months/longer for things... oy.

As with most kids movies, if you start to really think about it, it gets pretty dark. haha

Since I've been obsessing over retirement planning lately (I guess I'm in nesting mode with the spawn on the way), I figured I'd make a spreadsheet with some basic calculations to see where I'm at, and where I need to be.

It's still on the simple end of things, but it includes enough info that I created a quick way to tell when things are lining up well enough that it's time to pull the trigger, and as I add some more complexity and refinements I'll always make sure it feeds into that overall set of formulas. Every once in a while math comes in real handy. heh

When that cell flips to "GO GO GO", there will be much rejoicing. When that will be is harder to tell.

Doing some adulting-related research around tax and investments, and most things make more and more sense as it goes, but then randomly I hit on something that doesn't seem to make any sense given the context of everything else I've learned...

Turns out though that it actually DOES make sense, it's just worded so poorly that it added a ton of needless confusion and threw me for a loop...

Why do they have to make things so overly complex? ffs.

Silver lining though, I'm learning a ton, and since my situation is relatively simple I'm PRETTY sure I have a handle on it now... maybe... still double (and triple, and quadruple) checking my numbers and how it all fits, but things are looking pretty good for future Brad.

Just gotta get there. haha.

Professional Geek.
Introduction
I do customer support for Shopify. Be jealous. Trust me.

I also occasionally do some freelance writing, photography, and any number of random geeky things when opportunities arise. Such as the hangout podcast I'm a part of, www.gamesammich.com.

I enjoy very short walks far away from the beach, and tend to spend large chunks of the day in front of computers. Though I do try to find time to read science and/or philosophy related books when I'm not trapped in cyberspace.

Suggestions for circles to put me in:
