A long time ago my Ultrabook died. I’ve been using my dad’s laptop for now (as he has a desktop and I no longer do). I am saving for a nice shiny new Gigabyte P55Wv6-PC3D so if you could order stuff though my support us page I would appreciate it. Also, the link to the laptop will give me a kickback if you order through it. I have a long way to go for the laptop so any help you can provide is greatly appreciated.

Well, baby 2.0m has been a hard pregnancy for the wife. She got diagnosed with gestational diabetes much earlier than she did with baby 1.0m. She has had additional complications due to this and the latest of which is she cannot drive until he is here. Means she is fully dependent on others to help her run errands. I know this is really hard on her so I hate it.

It has been a while since my last update. Been busy with life. Wife and I are expecting another baby December 27th. Found out not to long ago that it will be a boy and his name will be Leighton Thomas McCloud. Can’t tell if Lucas is excited or not yet, only time will tell. I do know the wife and I are planning on getting a hotel the night before delivery (scheduled C-section) so we don’t have to get up quite as early in the morning (as of right now, she has to be there at 7am which means we have to leave no later than 6am and get up no later than 5am)……. Soon we will have to have Lucas do his first overnight away from us, this will be hard for both my wife and I. Although it will be harder for her since she has yet to spend a night away from him while I have.
Also, if you could click on ads I would appreciate it 🙂

Amazon Prime Day is coming July 12th. If you do not have Prime, it is a great time to sign up. My wife and I have it and in addition to the free 2 day shipping, we stream a lot of video and our son loves his Free Time 🙂

I have decided to do some Android development for the fun of it again. So far its going well, even have Jenkins setup to build automagically for me (just because I can). Working on a project for my wife and so far its turning out very well, couple more things I need to worry about doing but I think she will be happy with the end result.

I’m working on setting up two subdomains using Let’s Encrypt for SSL certificates. I managed to really mess something up in regards to forcing people to use SSL for them, so much so that I had to delete them and will try again in the future (they aren’t super important, just for my use mostly).

I have successfully gotten Let’s Encrypt working. Therefore all traffic to and from smccloud.com will be over SSL.

Well, MN law states that heat doesn’t have to be turned on before October 15th. That means since it is getting down to the high 20s at night it gets very cold in my apartment. Wife and I have resorted to using a space heater to keep our son’s room warm enough so he will sleep through the night.

I rebuilt my dad’s computer over the weekend. He went from an AMD Phenom II X2 550BE (running as an X4) to an Intel Haswell Pentium dual core, AsRock B85 Pro4 motherboard, 4x2GB DDR3 DIMMs, Intel 530 240GB SSD round out the new parts. I think I did pretty good on cable management considering his case doesn’t have anything for cable management in it.

I have been playing the World of Warships beta. It is a blast although I was kind of upset when I upgraded from the starter US Navy ship (the Erie) to the level 2 USN ship (Chester). I went from being able to bring 4 guns to bear when firing a broadside to being able to bring 3 guns to bear when firing a broadside. I know it has more health, armor, better guns etc, but it just doesn’t seem right. I’m hoping the hull upgrade for it actually mounts more guns….
