Goals: Work: - Install exim on gab Done. Installed but not configured yet. - Set up iptables on gab A bit. More to do. - TV mount in Julie's office Attached mount to wall. - Make notes on ethics policy Done. - Order headset, power strip, hdmi cables Done. Damn it. Firefox at work started doing the same thing it did at home. The scrollbar is just a gray area, with no arrows or indicator handle. A possible clue is that Firefix 46 switched from gtk2 to gtk3. Hmm, yeah. Iceweasel (Firefox 45) has scrollbars. I guess I'll just use Iceweasel if it's not too crashy. Twenty minute walk at lunch. Humid. It hasn't rained. Oh, jeez. Bob told me about a follow-up piece about the company in the Detroit News. http://www.detroitnews.com/story/news/local/oakland-county/2016/05/24/southfield-firm-defends-actions-challenged-lawsuit-founders-family/84879964/ "When Bloomfield Hills businessman Herbert Tyner died last August he allegedly owed his own company over $4.3 million in unpaid loans and had abused his position by taking more than a million dollars in improper benefits, according to Oakland Circuit Court documents. The allegations are among those made Tuesday by Tyner’s longtime partner and cousin, Bernard L. Hartman, in response to a lawsuit filed this month against Hartman and the company by Tyner’s family. The Hartman and Adkins response said if anyone has disproportionately enjoyed benefits, it was Tyner and family members “living rent-free at H&T properties” including a Florida home. Over several years the company made loans to and for the benefit of Tyner, primarily to buy life insurance policies. Tyner promised to repay the loan, which at the time of his death amounted to over $4.3 million, according to the filings, which allege “Tyner hid such improper benefits from Mr. Hartman” and the family has refused company demands to repay the amounts in question. The response said during the four years of his illness, Tyner never discussed with either Hartman or Adkins that any of the children should be involved in management of the company and made no efforts to include them before or after his death. 'In fact, he told Mr. Hartman and Mr. Adkins (and others) on several occasions that ‘Debbie Tyner does not run this company and is not going to run this company,’ ' according to Tuesday’s response. The response said Tyner’s office and belongings were removed from desk drawers and file cabinets were boxed up at Deborah Tyner’s direction and she was denied access after concerns about how she treated H&T personnel. The response said more than $1.5 million in compensation and bonuses paid to Hartman and Adkins was earned and that Herbert Tyner was compensated as an officer through the date of his death. No Tyner family member was ever entitled to be paid a salary, bonus or other employee compensation after his death, according to the response. The response asks that the Tyner lawsuit be dismissed and that the family or Tyner’s trust repay the loans and “ill-gotten benefits” and all attorney fees in the case. It also asks that the families be bound by a management agreement and a buy-sell agreement formulated before Tyner’s death in which any shareholder desiring to sell stock must first offer it to the company and other shareholders at a price determined by the company’s accountant." Home: - Read more of Around the World Done. Read the second chapter. - Work on clyde. What else do I need to do? Done. - Install/test blelo Done-ish. Looks like the app was relying heavily on url rewriting, so that's a problem. I'd rather rewrite the app than find some hacky work-around through pound or whatever. - Check Google 404 report Done. A couple of odd things, but nothing too alarming. Most of it was stuff that I renamed. I should put in some 301's when I get a chance. I went ahead and pointed all the name records at clyde. Inky still points to DO. I also moved the latest technical and diary files to the new host. Purged the old ssh keys from my .known_hosts. Pulled Let's Encrypt certificates. Not bad. I should remember to turn off Digital Ocean vm. The uncertainty about the company's future is still stressing me out. Worse: my stress is stressing out other people, and their stress is stressing me out more, vicious cycle, etc. I'm trying to chill out. Get back into meditation. Recall some Seneca. What can I usefully do besides stress out? - Go back to school? - Brush up on math - Get back to learning C on my own - Employer reimbursement? - Student loans? - Lose weight - Eat better and less - Document what I eat - Spend less money (already started this) - De-clutter, pack, empty storage locker and closets Another twenty minute walk after I got home, although it was up to Market Fresh to buy beer. Watched a few episodes of Parks and Rec. Breakfast: carrots, spinach, fried egg with one slice of cheddar cheese, coffee with half & half. Lunch: handful of almonds, an apple Dinner: two wheat pitas, red pepper hummus, Mediterranean vegetable chips, and four IPA's. Not good, but probably better than a pizza.
