Interesting you mention energy market. I work for Schneider Electric. The company that made this application was bought by them three years ago because the application aligns nicely with the energy industry. ('Cause turbines having to be taken down in emergency is very expensive. Even worse is if you don't take it down and it explodes on you.)
All right, I’ve been thinking, when life gives you lemons, don’t make lemonade! Make life take the lemons back! Get mad! I don’t want your damn lemons! What am I supposed to do with these? Demand to see life’s manager! Make life rue the day it thought it could give Cave Johnson lemons! Do you know who I am? I’m the man whose gonna burn your house down – with the lemons! I'm gonna get my engineers to invent a combustible lemon that burns your house down!

Remember me?

I was 19 when I first showed up around here and now I'm approaching 38 - doesn't time fly?

Anyway, here's the news: I'm one week away from beginning the journey into Fatherhood, we're having (non-identical) twin girls. I need to figure out this parenting job as I go along.

Congrats dude. (As a non-parent) the best newborn advice I’ve heard: labor is tough and crotch stitches hurt. If mom needs a week before accepting guests (no matter who wants to meet the little ones) let her have some time to rest. (Bonus, it gives you time to figure out the nap/feeding/poop schedule so no one has to meet a fussy baby unless you want them to)
In case of rapture, can I have your car?

Great news! You'll love it. At least over time. Sleep while you still can ;)

After living in a pretty small town of 15,000 people for the past 6 months, I moved back to my home city. I had no intention of staying. Small town life was pretty nice though, I could see myself moving to a different (nicer) small town if I could make money remotely. I liked the quietness, lack of traffic and being a 10 minute drive from rural nature.

Been seriously thinking a lot about starting a small company of my own, and finding ways to generate "passive income". I've known for a few years that I wasn't going to work for other people for the rest of my life. I feel like the only people anyone should really be working for are themselves and God.

I need to read more. If anyone has any suggestions, ideally classic fiction thats easy to digest, let me know.

In the wasteland, the sly survive and the past and present are one, the sinners rot and the future is the ultimate purgatory

Discworld. If you haven't read it, start.

There are a lot of books, but it's well worth the effort to read them. I'm currently on the last book in the series The Shepherd's Crown. It was the last book Pratchett wrote before his death and was released posthumously by his daughter.
