After spinning my wheels through most of last week, I finally got some traction mid-afternoon Friday and got me some stuff done. Finally! Now I’m trying to get last week’s work and this week’s work all done before the week ends… Will probably fail.
That recalcitrant server finally gave in and let me win. I’m going to start the noisy bastard up as soon as this post is committed to posterior, er, uh, posterity, and get more goodies installed on it. My client decided to buy some new hard disks so it’ll be chock full of new ones, and with luck we won’t be dealing with any more disk failures any time soon. Time will tell.
The garage door now has all new springs and cables and is working much better than it has since we moved in. Yay. Steel under tension is one of my least favorite things but I only bled twice so the job went about as well as can be expected. And now there are safety cables in both of the appropriately and equally sized springs, so if one should prematurely fail it might not cause any additional damage. One can hope.
I noticed the other day that the jar of pickles we have in our cold thing is labeled “Product Of India”. I’ve nothing against the good people of India; my glitch is the fossil fuels that were burnt to get their produce here. What The FUCK. Did we forget how to grow cucumbers here or what?
We started calling the refrigerator the cold thing because Miss Autumn just love love loves to put her face against the bottom of the box that’s usually behind the door. It started out as “Autumn’s cold thing”, and by now is just the cold thing. We’re weird but we’re happy.
I’m a busy busy boy, taking time to read your blogs but with not a lot of time to leave comments thoughtful or not. That might be a good thing, eh? Please know that I’m not ignoring anyone, even if there’s no outward sign that I’m not.
Be well, friends and neighbors!
