It Is Too Early To Be This Late

Long day. Morning was spent online banking. Work was devoted to re-running a couple of video quality tests on a series of devices which are different models from the same manufacturer using basically the same firmware. They all failed, repeatably. I showed the product manager and we tried to figure out a root cause. Bad timing, the manufacturer's rep had just gone home after being here. Home is not in the USA.

Stepped out for an hour to do some banking. I was able to make the first inheritance distribution to myself and two out of three sisters. Fourth sister still needs to send me account numbers. Logged into the old T. Rowe Price account and saw they have zeroed it out. Still waiting for the new account information. As soon as I get that, I will transfer everything from that account and my personal account into one of the brokerages which was actually helpful.

Worked till 7, then stopped off home and hauled the laundry to the coinless laundromat in Sunnyvale. It's a love/hate thing. The place is brand new, has several sizes of washers and two sizes of dryers (big and "where can I dry a mattress?") and everything is done by loading up a mag stripe card with $$ and pushing the card into the machine's reader. No more quarters. Even the soap is sold that way (though I bring my own). The hate thing is they start sweeping and mopping the floor an hour before closing, and there is no place inside to sit. I really need to find a place to live which has its own washer/dryer.
