Despite its 4×3, standard def, aughties feel, The Wire’s lo-fi grit continues to attract fans who rabidly proclaim its praises.

It’s hot out there in these streets. That’s why we’re hooking you up with a good excuse to lay low in your living room.

If I had this, every time I opened it I would say, “lettuce stay dry” and laughter would ensue. Because everyone loves silly PG rated wordplay.

The devil is in the details

Manila owes me another hour of my life.

Thankfully I switched to water, else I would have been useless.

But the problem is now solved.

Biggest issue though, throughout all of this, the other party left out at least six subnets. 

All I will say about that is, there was a very professional looking form, no reason they should not have been on there.

Manila now owes me at least 8 hours of my life

After like 90 minutes on a conference call, we achieved the ability to ping from one side of a VPN to another, but not vice-versa, which was the same state we were in 12 hours before (ok, maybe it was 10, but felt like 12).

So I said that aloud “Great, that was where me and the other guy were 12 hours ago.”

Within the 30 minutes that followed, the thing I had hoped would have happened well before 5pm, they changed something on their side. And magically, PING worked both ways.

But when asked, they won’t tell me what.

Previously for similar VPN madness, I spent at least three hours on two different calls.

I want those hours back.

10 minutes

I almost missed my flight.

Two reasons.

1) I remembered my flight as 6:50. Nope, 6:40.

2) I was sick yesterday, so I didn’t get all my packing done until this morning.

Got to the airport kiosk as 6:11 am.

A 6:40 flight won’t allow automated checkin within 30 minutes.

My original plan was to be there at 6, and the packing bit, I wasn’t sweating it because I thought my flight was at 6:50.

Since I have a printer at home, and I had a bag I could carry on, I should have preprinted my boarding pass.

So 10 minutes off on my flight and 10ish minutes off on my arrival.

Thankfully the desk agent printed my tickets and told me to run.

So yeah, security at the Traverse airport has never been busy, apparently I’ve never tried to fly out on a Monday morning.

A total of 5 people in the security line were on my flight. They eventually were calling out the names of passengers, on the second pass they got my last name right.

I sprinted to the gate and shouted “that’s me Dominguez-Benner”, she checked my boarding pass on down the jet bridge I went.

I informed her before heading down the jet bridge that “Fox is coming”, the passenger behind me that I had leaned the last name of whilst waiting.

I get to the end and the attendant told me to wait there, as there was no more room for bags and it would have to be checked.

I honestly worries they would leave without me, just close those doors and go. So I waited and then was told by the bag guy that I needed to see the gate agent to check my bag. Up the bridge I sprinted again and dropped off my bag, still fearing the plane would be gone by the time I got back.

Nope, it was still there. As I found my seat and gently deposited my laptop under the seat in front of me I sank into the middle seat feeling victorious that I was able to make my flight, not have to pay anywhere between $200-$900 for a ticket that would at the earliest get me in around 5pm.

But the best part, as I fished around for my seat belt, I remembered the desk agent saying “your bag is checked through to Tampa.”

Sweet, free bag check, saved $25, though I almost had a panic attack.
