Well now that my company has been sold and delisted from the Nasdaq I can let the cat out of the bag. I have decided to not stay on as the CFO with the new owners and have elected to move onto a new venture. As I have gone through the sale process I met a lot of people along the way that have told me there is a market for me as a consultant that could be quite lucrative and allow me some more family time as well as not having to do a traditional office job. I figured now is as good a time as any to give it a shot and see if over the next year or two I can build this into something that I can work on full time. With that being said I will be done in my current role within the next 30 days and then will be taking on a consulting role at for the company for the next six months along with working on some other consulting roles outside of the gaming industry. Never thought this would be the path that I would choose but having a few years of guaranteed income from my current contract will at least allow me time to see if this is for me or if I want to go back to the traditional work force. Excited to give something new a try and see what fruit it may bear and worse case I make a few extra bucks outside of my normal salary as well
as get some family and time at home. I have been away or traveling way too much over the last 10 years so now I get to enjoy some of the perks that the last decade away has afforded me.

On a related note I will mostly be home during the summer so that means golf just about every day that it doesn’t rain.

I have to give recognition to Amazon for some solid customer service today. A couple of weeks ago, I ordered a new tablet. There was a deal on the tablet that included a $50 Amazon gift card. What I overlooked, however, was that in order to receive the gift card, I was supposed to click an extra button to add that to my cart as well.

When it dawned on me what I'd done, I figured I was just out $50. But then the same deal came up again today. So I contacted Amazon through their online chat and asked if I could get the gift card now. I did have a tiny bit a leverage; if they refused, I could initiate a return on the tablet and order a new one with the gift card, and that would cost them money (though it would also be a hassle for me.)

The customer service agent on the chat quickly offered to just refund my purchase of the tablet $50! It's always a good feeling to contact customer support and get a good and quick resolution.

It was windy and wet.  Probalby much like Kiskiack.  Cart path only, so it was slooooooow going.  Course was covered with leaves, so we were losing balls in the fairway and it was really tough to make a putt as the balls were bouncing off leaves and stuff.  And I yanked it into the bunker long left on 16 and had to fight to make a bogey. 

Tough day, but we had a great time; it's really beautiful there.  I'd love to get back out there when it's less windy and drier.

How was Kiskiack?

Wet, windy, and cart path only.  Only real problem with leaves was if you missed the fairway.  Course was very playable and we made it around in good time.   Was nice to play there again it has been a while.

Man, when was the last time the New England Patriots and Alabama Crimson Tide both lost on the same weekend?

This is like the best weekend ever for me!

And the bonus was the Miami Dolphins beating the Philadelphia Eagles on the same day.

It must be a full moon or something.  😁
