Hired my replacement, recorded an audition, researched new workstation parts for the new kid to build his box with.
Kicked out a stage plot, tested, inventoried, & moved out a bunch of (heavy) sound & lighting equipment for various gigs this weekend, interviewed a computer nerd kid to be my replacement.
Received my first feature request for my illuminated #DJ #table from a customer, I’ll be going in and drawing up blueprints for a equipment cover addition. Researched moving #Exchange into the clown. Edited two incoming videos. Meeting about website traffic and search results. Recorded a bootleg of some webinar thing for the boss.
Threw the kid into a studio for cute-af missing-front-teeth jpegs. Threw the kid into a helicopter for exciting flight over vegas experience.
Pulled copies of 2016’s web access logs and current database from production’s webserver, cut out sample/example data to share with a possible vendor. Ran 2014, 2015, and 2016 web access logs through my analytics, created reports.
Very frustrated: generally same quantity of visitors monthly over the years, but a huge decline in pages-viewed per-visitor when company switched away from my own custom #webapp & design to some outside designer house with their code the company spend a ton of money on. 15 pages per visitor down to 7 – My web app encouraged exploring, comparing, discovering. New version’s “SEO improvements” clearly didn’t make a difference in drawing in visitors, I was already there on my original effort.
Yesterday: Hosted two different Michael Jackson groups/shows #rehearsals, long technical/sales meeting to outsource IT for when I leave Vegas, setup & ran a remote audition over Skype from my #stage. Sourced & curated a 6+ hour long custom playlist of Australian music, so much #didgeridoo, which reminded me of #hellocode.co and #littlelogs.
All-day flight into Charlotte, North Carolina for annual Veterans of Foreign Wars annual convention, where I will direct the video stuff. Unpacked and tested my gear.
