The CK Daily – Just go with the flow
Whew…this has been a week! I started the week off with high hopes and expectations to get so much done but so many things I had not planned happened and disrupted my plans for the week. I usually plan out my week and time pretty good but when it comes to your family and their health you just learn to go with the flow and do what needs to be done.
My whole family is getting over having Covid (well, except for my Dad who seems to be immune to it…he is the most susceptible to it and has somehow avoided getting it while the rest of the family did.) It was wild not getting to see them for about three weeks. I was having to play courier for them by picking up medicine, groceries, and whatever else they needed and dropping it off on their front porch. Good thing I only live about 12 minutes from them. My mom (breakthrough case) and oldest cousin (my parents have custody of 2 of my cousins) seemed to have been hit the hardest. They have all been past the contagious stage for about two weeks but the lingering issues have been more of a problem than when they were sick.
Back to this week, I had plans to redo all my landscaping, change around somethings in the garage, finish one of my guest rooms, and do a few other things in the evenings. What I ended up doing was taking my cousin to the hospital Monday night, almost had to take my mom to the hospital on Tuesday, and then I had to take my dad to his doctor yesterday since mom still couldn’t drive. Not exactly what I had planned this week, but we were driving back from the doctor yesterday, just my dad and I, and he said we have not spent time, just the two of us, together in a long time without him being sick. I thought about and he was right we had not with everything else going on. He said, “Thank you for driving me today. This is nice, we should do it more often.” I agreed. It was nice and we should do it more often and will.
This whole week I have had to just go with the flow instead of my plans – personally, at work, at home, etc. In the moment it is frustrating not getting what I wanted to done, but it was good ending up doing what needed to be done and being able to help them out, and even spend a little unplanned time with them. I think everyone is on the mend now or at least heading in the right direction so here’s to hopefully getting some “planned” stuff done soon.
Have a great day!

Learning Center Article – What is CAT6A and How is it being used today?
What is the most important component of network design? Cost and performance certainly dictate the final result, but such general concepts don’t really pinpoint a place to start. In reality, a network’s capacity and reliability are built upon the cables that connect everything. When cost and performance are used to select a cable, most network engineers try to stuff as much Ethernet into their system as they can.
Ethernet tends to be the more affordable, reliable way to keep devices in communication and fulfill a network’s needs. One of the reasons Ethernet is still able to fill these roles with modern data demands is because newer, more powerful cables are available. While Cat6A is neither the newest nor most advanced Ethernet on the market today, it is a staple in the industry and services a wide range of networks.
