Getting that coffee ready

This post is only partly about coffee. It really is about my struggle with office chair mats.

Today started with a wonderful cup of coffee. Instead of sporting two shots of espresso this morning it seemed like coffee is the way to go. In a little bit today before the start of the two NFL playoff games, I’m going to need to buy a new office chair mat for my home office CEO chair. Earlier this week the last floor mat sort of splintered and had to be put in the garbage. Since living in this house this will the 3rd floor mat for my office chain in the last 5 years. That seems a little bit out of control in terms of floor mat sustainability. Using my Scandanaviang Designs Wau office chair on the carpet is strange. It takes a lot of effort to move around. My guess is that this type of rolling around is probably not good for the carpet. My plan is to visit Costco first and then Staples as a backup route to finding a new office chair mat.

This morning I’m watching the week 1 course content for the Coursera “Crash Course on Python” series the Google team recently released. It seemed like a good idea to just jump in and do the courses to change things up a little bit in my regular routine.

As part of that course I just went out and looked at some fun documentation:


Think Python

I downloaded the “Think Python: How to Think Like a Computer Scientist” book in PDF format (Downey, 2012).

I’m now done with week 1 of the “Crash Course on Python” Coursera course in the “Google IT Automation with Python” specialization.
