Kinda boring

Today's challenge was to find other things to do when my test machine was running a 24-hour video. It's on the test sheet...

Traffic was pretty light where I got onto the freeway - 30mph, didn't have to slow down to merge. Usually it's at a crawl there.

The bug I had reported was responded to, but they were wrong, so I added a detailed step by step. Turns out part of it is a known problem with one particular app, but that's not what I filed the bug against.

Spent some Quality Time learning how to better use the logging tool.

Lunch was Thai coconut chicken, which wasn't Thai at all. Except for the pineapple, which I could do without. Not much traffic today. More at break time, some pretty women.

Stuck around an extra 15 minutes and then drove to the garage and plugged the car in. Took my laptop upstairs and wrote the previous entry, which had been bugging me all day. No dinner service, blamed on the upcoming 3-day weekend. Makes no sense at all to shut something down on Thursday for a Monday holiday.

The car didn't need much of a charge, it's been running on gas the last couple of days. It doesn't like it that I don't use the gas engine, so it overrides my electric setting from time to time. I thought about driving to Sacramento this weekend to exercise the gas engine, instead of taking the train, but it's going to be raining.

Home at about 7, spent too much time on FB, need to step away again. Except I need to post cat photos.

Canceled my indeed.com email updates on technical jobs in Huntsville, Alabama and KC, KS. Those are places with aerospace companies which have lower costs of living, and being in a double-wide is considered affluence. Now that my job appears safe till next year...

Watched the latest Match Game. Some pretty women on the panel this time. All 4 contestants were losers, and it was clear that the first win was faked, and the dummy went on to win the grand prize. The $25,000 question was hand picked for him. I think I'm done with this show.

The plastic tablet stand I ordered arrived, and while it is lighter than my metal one, it is much bulkier.

Marie C herb roast chicken for dinner. Ice cream sandwich and some grapes for dessert. Got on the exercise bike till my legs hurt, which was not very long. I don't know how long because the display was blank. After I was done I put new batteries in. It had the original batteries, which I think dated from my knee surgery. A lot of years.

Plans for tomorrow:
Maybe scout out the Amtrak stop where I'm catching the train Saturday. Got home too late to do it tonight.

  • Renn Fair & Football

    Spook started the night curled up next to me, but that didn't last long. Got up with the alarm as planned, banana breakfast and morning drugs,…

  • Renn FAIL

    The Renn Faire was from 10 am to 10 pm today, so I figured I could sleep in and get there around 11, but the water was turned off in the neighborhood…

  • To-do list and then some

    Another night with fewer trips to the loo. Spook did not stay on the bed very long. Easy to see why - when the lights came on my blanket was 3/4 off…
