    Really outside!! All is can say is Wow, they must be monster heaters. I can see it now. All the other neighbors lights will be flickering, due to lack of power.

    Squatzilla did chain squats and chain dead-lifts today...

    I am in some bad leg shape right now. I will guarantee tomorrow and Sunday I wont be able to move... AWESOME!!!

    Why chains you ask? They are for adaptive resistance. At the bottom of the squat a good portion of the chains are on the floor so the weight is reduced. As you lift the bar the chains come off the ground to increase the weight. It also makes the bar less stable forcing the core stabilizers to trigger. All around good stuff!!!

    My crazy *** week continues. Along with my usual IT and software/hardware helpdesk duties. Today I have backed up 3 computers, completed the Win 8.1 upgrade on one from yesterday. Then I started the Win 8.1 upgrade on the 3 I backed up. I restarted a Win 7 machine that had 60 updates so I had to find a spare machine for the user while the updates were being done. I am doing all of this at the same time along with requests for laser pointers, printer jams, email issues and software crashes. I didn't even notice it was noon and my day starts at 8. Help lol

    Good luck with the upgrades. Those take FOREVER! I'm really surprised your company is already upgrading to 8.1. Most businesses are sticking to 7 for awhile. Then there are the businesses that still have to upgrade from XP before April.

    I work at an Architecture firm so with the newest versions of the CAD software using older versions of Windows is not good. Plus we're on the cutting edge here which is why I love it I get to play with a lot of new toys when I set it up for the users. We get most of the Windows machines via Dell so the latest batch are all Win 8. We have 3 people with actual touchscreen PCs. I just finishing setting up our first Surface 2 Pro. The user is using it as a laptop replacement. Most of our Virtual Machines are running Win 8.

    I also just got the best news for this crazy *** day. A user in our Marketing dept. is getting a new iMac. So the dual Xeon 16GB Mac Pro they use will be given to me. I'm the only other Mac user other than Marketing and they have all been upgraded to new iMacs. So next year I'll be leaving my laptop at home Wohoo!

    Sweet! I'd love to work there.

    If I had my choice of company-issued device, I'd want a Surface Pro 2.

    not me it was nice setting it up but afterwards setting it up for the new user ouch. It took me 30 minutes to do something that would usually take 10 minutes on a laptop. It kept freezing, dropping the network connection. When I finally got it all setup I was totally frustrated.

    Yikes! I didn't think Surface Pro 2 had those issues. I was under the impression that RT was and is laggy.

    It wasn't too bad during setup but when people expect a laptop replacement it puts a lot of expectations on it. I had to re-install the CS 6 twice because it stopped working Ughh I don't know the whole no compromise thing I don't think was a wise way to go. People using it at home for some browsing and using Office I think would be fine.

    That makes sense. I wouldn't get a Surface Pro 2 if I intended to run CS 6. I don't think it's designed for something that CPU/GPU intensive.
