It's that bad time of the year when we as Americans must file taxes before the deadline of April 15th.

Today was my day, and taxes have been filed, as much as I hate to do it, simply because I owe a ton of money due to being a contractor!

Hopefully that's all about to change, very soon!

@cliffwade Contractor? So you're actually not a W9 employee for Branch?

beardedtechguy,
@beardedtechguy@allthingstech.social avatar

@cliffwade Oh shit! Dang that is crazy. Yeah being a contractor you have to set aside your own self-employment taxes. I hated that.

Anways, this changes my whole guessing scheme of what your meeting was about..😀

Good morning and happy Friday peeps!

We’ve made it to the weekend y’all. Let’s start the day with out chat and see what we have planned.

I’m starting the day with getting my tires rotated. The it’ll just be a regular work day. Just going through some SOC reports that I’m behind on. Then tonight will be some school work and TV shows.

Good morning and happy Friday to the #Fediverse today.

Let's all discuss what the day holds for us today as well as the weekend ahead.

Work stuff for a bit, then I'm off to file my taxes, which is a horrible time of year, but it's got to be done.

Tonight is Fortnite with friends like we do each Friday. Hoping to get some more time in with Horizon Forbidden West as well.

@cliffwade Morning Cliff. Just getting tires rotated currently. Then regular work day. Weekend I’m not sure of yet as usual. Have fun on games tonight.

@cliffwade@allthingstech.social avatar

Android 15 Beta 1 has now been installed on my old Pixel 7 Pro as well as my Pixel 8 Pro.

Hopefully everything runs well, especially on the Pixel 8 Pro device since that's a daily driver device.

@cliffwade Well it's Android so...fingers crossed. 😜

I was just informed about 15 minutes ago that I have another MAJOR meeting at 2pm EST with regards to work stuff.

This one isn't as intense as yesterday's could have been, but it's still discussing some major steps of what's next and similar other things.

Send some positive vibes my way and let's hope things work out with what I'm wanting and needing!

This puts me one step closer! 🤪

@beardedtechguy@allthingstech.social avatar

@cliffwade God at this point, I wish you’d just not post these until after this all is done. 😆 Total gaslighting.

@cliffwade I know, just give you crap. I’m glad for you!

Good Thursday morning .

Let's get our day started with our chat and see what we all are up to.

I just have the usual work stuff here. I have to get back to working on our new website design as I have been putting it off for awhile. Later is church and relaxing.

beardedtechguy,
@beardedtechguy@allthingstech.social avatar

@cliffwade Oh no, website for the company I work for. 😁

What if Mastodon had a way to save the ALT text you entered each time you used a new image. So if you used the same image later, it would some how know what you used the last time and give you the option to automatically use that instead of having to type something each and every time.

Seems to me there would be some way to be able to do this easily and to save all of us time from having to type the same thing for ALT text on a regular basis.

beardedtechguy,
@beardedtechguy@allthingstech.social avatar

@cliffwade This definitely needs to be a feature.

cliffwade, to workersrights
@cliffwade@allthingstech.social avatar

Meeting is over and things went CONSIDERABLY better than I ever expected! So much more relaxed and not "corporate, by the book" stuff as I thought it might be.

Again, while I can't discuss specifics at this time, I was told by the lady doing the meeting, is that it is 10000% a YES from me!

Hopefully I'll have more details to share soon, but this was certainly a huge positive! Now to sit and wait for the HR formalities and legalities to get completed!

beardedtechguy,
@beardedtechguy@allthingstech.social avatar

@cliffwade 10000% a yes. Hmm, moving into a senior position role? What type of cryptic post is this. 😂

beardedtechguy,
@beardedtechguy@allthingstech.social avatar

@cliffwade You do know I have a signal account should you feel so inclined. 🤣

beardedtechguy,
@beardedtechguy@allthingstech.social avatar

@cliffwade And you call yourself a tech lover. 😜 I hear Proton had good encryption. LOL

@cliffwade God I hate suspense. :antiverified:

@thepmofam @cliffwade I could believe leading the entire Nova division.

I'm about 30 minutes away from my MAJOR meeting at work and getting more and more nervous with every passing minute.

I'm anxious for the meeting, but I'm also hoping to get it done and over with as quickly as possible with no issues in any way.

@beardedtechguy@allthingstech.social avatar

After seeing @cliffwade post his Fedi Circle, I decided to try out the service to make my own.

Looks like the folks who interact with me with in my inner circle (i.e. most interactions back to me), at least most recently, are:
@gnitro @ShaMyouiMo @grizzlyfrog @handmade_ghost @biped808 @stevendbrady @cliftonmr @rgbunny @Kitty

It's interesting as I don't think I would have guessed some of those folks, apart from Nitro, which absolutely tracks. But, it's cool to see.
You can make your own here: https://data.natty.sh/fedi-circles/

@mdmrn @cliffwade @gnitro @ShaMyouiMo @grizzlyfrog @handmade_ghost @biped808 @stevendbrady @cliftonmr @rgbunny @Kitty Wait a minute, how are you in my circle and I’m not in yours? This thing is rigged. 😂
