At this time of year we are usually outside skating on a frozen pond and cross country skiing along the trails. It's supposed to be -18C not +18C. Not that I'm complaining, I'm outside in a t-shirt and thinking I need to dig out my bike and go for a ride.

I just ordered my first drone and already I'm seeing the world from a slightly different perspective even though they haven't shipped it yet. I'm picturing myself flying above the trees and seeing all of the hills and valleys around me from 100' up in the air. I can barely wait for it to arrive.

That hits the nail on the head.

More bullshit advertising scams pretending to be anti virus notifications on your mobile device. Never click any of the buttons or even the painted "X" in the corner of the ad. Close the app and avoid the click bait site that served the ad in the future.

Take this as a warning to avoid or uninstall +Avira Antivirus​ for Android. Any AV app advertising with pop up ads pretending to look like system warnings is underhanded, always a complete scam and can't be trusted. In some countries this may even be considered illegal.

I had some early morning work to do on one of my wireless towers the other day. I finished just in time to enjoy this view of the sunrise. Next time I'll remember to bring a coffee and plan to linger a bit longer.

Icy Driveway - Canada Post Delivery

My +Nest Cam captured the Canada Post truck delivering another Nest Cam. He made it up the icy driveway without incident, however getting back down was more than he bargained for.

Estimated Time of Delivery Not Available

At some point in the future one of the major carriers is going to figure out how to implement +Uber style tracking for parcel delivery and they are going to make a killing!

On Friday of last week I was waiting for a new #Chromebook from +Dell Canada, shipped via +Purolator. The 10 hour delivery window with required signature upon delivery meant that I had to be home the whole day in order to receive it. By the way, neither Dell nor Purolator notified me of this incredibly inconvenient requirement until 6:00 PM the night before. Then to add insult to injury the delivery truck didn't show up and instead has been rescheduled for Monday.

I have news for you Dell & Purolator; the personal cost of that level of inconvenience is so great that I can't afford you. Send it back, cancel the order and refund the purchase!

A special note to +Dell: Dear Dell; you make a premium product geared to business professionals. Your product is marketed as light and durable, designed to stand up to the stress of a busy lifestyle always on the move. Well guess what; that market segment doesn't have 10 hours of free time to be spent sitting around on standby waiting for the damned doorbell to ring!!!!

Follow Up: upon receiving my instructions to cancel the order Dell has agreed to remove the signature upon delivery requirement and has instructed Purolator to leave it at my door in front of my +Nest security camera.
