I went for a run today along Brighton beach and found a £10 bill on the sidewalk! Unfortunately it's now raised the bar for my running - I'm going to consider it a bad day if I don't find cash on my run now!
Today has been a day of Analytic Number Theory study. I have a couple of assignments due next week on the Calculus of Variation and Analytic Number Theory. I'm a bit behind in my study plan, but that is nothing new. I found some excellent YouTube videos on various topics that I am working on - it really is an amazing resource!
Helen and I did a lovely walk along the coast from Brighton to Rottingdean along the cliff walk. We do this walk quite regularly, because it's a fairly easy one from our place in Brighton. Today was such a mild day for winter! 11 degrees and partially sunny.
I was doing some work with Twitter Bootstrap 4 yesterday. It's amazing how many differences there are with Bootstrap 3 - it's changed a lot! All my old knowledge has gone out the window. I quite like it though - it does feel a little simpler.
My new Amazon Spot was delivered yesterday. It is a round Alexa device with a small screen that lives in the bedroom and acts like an alarm clock that you can shout at. We have a number of other Alexa devices, although this is the only one with a screen. It is great to be able to ask Alexa for the news in the morning and get a video feed from the BBC. First impressions are very positive, although it was quite expensive given that an Echo Dot is about £30.
I have been reading and thinking about the difference between being a digital nomad and being location independent recently. A digital nomad is primarily based around travel - seeing the world while working remotely. Location independence (to me) means that you may be based primarily in a few different locations in the world, and you set up your life in such a way as you are not dependent on one particular location.
I just formed the company "Hi-Tech Nomad Ltd". I have had the domain for forever, and have always wanted to do something with it. I have the twitter handle @hitechnomad, and lots of other social media assets. My plan is to provide information, goods and resources for "digital nomads" - those people who travel and work on things that are location independent.
This morning I managed to pick up some cheap return flights to Australia - £417 all up! I was looking at Apple News, the travel section, and noticed an article in the Independent about super cheap air fares through Air China. We rushed to our computers to check it out, and sure enough, they were available. Locked and loaded!
