A wonderful Monday to start off the week. Network traffic I don’t understand, bandwidth limiting issues, tiredness due to insomnia, and a great many other things. Wonderful.
Got some more stuff organized yesterday so hopefully by next century I’ll have it all done.
And since talking to my local Nextel/Sprint franchise place my Nextel continues to hang up my data connection and reboot at the most inopportune times. It’s odd that something that worked so consistently for so many _years_ suddenly starts to have problems the moment I talk to them about upgrading. I don’t seriously think they’re screwing with anything but in this day and age of corporate fuckery I wouldn’t put it past them.
Been catching up on TV shows I’ve missed thanks to Netflix. I’m now almost through season 2 of Heroes.
Not much else going on really. I’m just biding my time and getting things done. The same old things still apply - I need to be more active, I need to lose the weight, I need sleep, etc.
One thing that is more consistent is the taking of my vitamins in the morning. I took them without food today but I went to sleep on a full stomach so that wasn’t an issue.
Still trying to figure out what to do with my neighbor’s system. His chip is definitely good as do the other parts appear to be. I think I’ll make one more test and then just get him another board when we can afford it. The question is do I get the same board or do I get a different one. I don’t want to have to re-load Windows but it looks like it might come to that.
My mind is a little stalled at the moment. I hope I can get the rest of the shuffling done thing week. Having everything at least in the _general_ place its supposed to be will be a big relief because then it’s just minor shuffling. Nothing has to go far then and it’s a lot easier to work on getting everything in order.
Came up with a wonderful idea for the garage to strengthen it using a framework of long cross beams around the edge of the inner walls that would leave the center beam able to be removed and the cable ties moved up creating a completely open ceiling. Definitely a long-term plan.
I also came up with something else. Remember the garden monitors shaped like crystals? Turns out if I use the casing resin I can embed broken solar cells into them and make them completely battery powered. I think that would look really cool as well.
I definitely need to get more sleep...
