Made it through the stress test yesterday. I was pretty scared going in, but they talked me through the whole procedure and I calmed down. I was monitored by two doctors and a nurse while they were stressing my heart on a treadmill so if anything came up they'd stop the test and treat me right away. They said I did good and they got the data they needed for the cardiologist who I see in a couple weeks. They also gave me nuclear meds through an IV so they could take pictures of my heart before and after the stress test so it appears they got everything short of cutting me open to find out what is going on.

I'll be glad when I see the cardiologist in the follow up to finally get answers. Even if it's just a case where I over did it and almost gave myself a heart attack, at least I'll know. Since my family is the history of heart disease and I've lost family members to heart attacks, all the docs and everyone else I talked to said it's a good thing I'm listening to my body and getting it checked out. They had other patients there and they were telling me how they made the mistake of not listening to their body and ended up with multiple bypass surgeries so I'm hoping that won't be me.

I feel like we're one of the few places left that use better grammar than the rest of the Internet and even then, we're far from perfect. :P

Heart stress test coming up Thursday! I took off work for that in case I pass out or something. :)

I worked out on Thursday. Went home tired, but instead of starting to feel better, I felt like my chest was getting heavier and heavier and eventually I gave up and went to the ER. I started feeling better when they had me hooked up to the EKG and enzyme test was negative so it was a something, but not a heart attack. They want me to follow up with a cardiologist before I do any more working out. It was pretty scary, but I was pretty relieved to hear it wasn't a heart attack. We have family history of heart issues (and other family members died from heart attacks) so I'm more susceptible.

In other news, my aunt died today. Severe asthma attack and her heart stopped on the way to the ER. They couldn't bring her back. I wasn't that close to her, but my mother's a wreck. I had to bring my mother some money so she could go to the funeral.

You're right about that. There's no in between. I'm also either working or doing a dedicated hobby or I'd also go crazy/get depressed!

Online streaming is very hard, even for pre-recorded videos. I've heard from other Youtubers and the amount of work they put in is crazy and if they have a regular job on top of it, I don't know if they even sleep.

I have the highest respect for y'all who make on there. It's not an easy job for sure, but at least y'all seem to love it so that helps out a lot.

That reminds me, is expanding to also do pre-recorded videos now. You going to start uploading there as well or are you going to wait and see if that flops first?

Big monitors :P

At least that's what I do. I actually turned the resolution on my work laptop down to 1920x1080 to be able to properly see everything with scaling turned off. If the monitor is small I run lower resolution, for anything higher it's go big or go home. XD

I agree, but I don't know of a way to ban custom firmware for ISPs while still allowing custom firmware for consumers since ISPs themselves are consumers of the same products. It's kind of a catch 22 since running your own firmware can open up new features to you and get you more updates and fixes beyond what the manufacturer will support. It's just a PITA when ISPs do it to make life a living hell for us.
