de-spamming, archiving data, DD214

This is the progress I made today:

  1. went through a folder of mp3 CDs, backed them up to disk, tossed the CDs, and put the disc folder in the donation pile

  2. unsubscribed from about 20 sources of unwanted email.  Not only will this help decrease my inet bandwidth use but it will help me focus by removing a distraction.

This is absolutely going to work.

My employer is having annual benefit enrollment right now so HR is hammered.  They will be done on the 12th so that next monday I will call and find out where to send my DD214.

Then I can request a quote to buy back my military time as a part of this retirement.  That will get me 45 months closer to retirement.  That would be Feb 30, 2025.  Holy crap.

I am finishing up paying off debt this year so I wouldn’t be able to buy it until next year.  Price will go up another 10% on Sept 1, 2017 so I’ll want to do it before then.
