Rocking round the way…

Love me some Joe Walsh! They are inducting him into the Colorado Music Hall of Fame this summer! Wish I could go….

Alas, that is not in the cards, but I did my own version of rocking around the way over the weekend. I made more actual progress in my search for a meaningful next step in my career trajectory in a five minute geekdom conversation while with my son.

Interestingly enough, I was whining about Windows 10. I was given some really good pointers to try. I was way too paranoid to make changes to this system while on the road, but I put those suggestions to test as soon as I was comfortable. Holy cow! What a difference. That’s one of the reasons why I like rocking around the way!! Thank you!!!

I provided my analysis below, if you are interested.

My Windows 10 machine is a dog. Right before I left, I was trying to figure out how I could improve performance. Seems pretty easy to identify the root cause:

Bottleneck

My conclusion – the only way to speed up the performance on my system is to upgrade the hard drive to solid state. I was depressed. The cost to perform such an upgrade is prohibitive and I am unemployed!! Idea abandoned, but not forgotten.

Fast forward to an entirely interpersonal encounter that provided me the opportunity to whine about my need to upgrade my write speed. I was provided with 3 steps to try that would reduce the system overhead. (I was kicking myself for not thinking of that!)

Today, I applied those suggestions! Below are the results:

I owe someone at least a steak dinner! Thank you!

The beauty of this interaction is that it was an entirely organic interpersonal learning. It is so refreshing!
