We thought we were done testing the TV, but then Asia Twerp sent a new build to fix a problem which he said I reported (but I don't think I did) and of course right away I found a bug in the new build. And it killed NP's TV.

So I spent all day running the Required tests. Got most of them done, but since the Asia Twerp didn't provide a new build number, the test UI doesn't show what was passed/failed today, it shows for the last several days.

Got the official move email. It doesn't apply to me, I need to open a ticket with them to get my stuff moved.
The new build apparently does not recognize bluetooth accessories.

Lunch was beef & grains. Not bad except for the broccoli. Strawberries for dessert. And almond roca popcorn later.

The outdoor temp sensor for the work thermometer didn't work. Only cost $7 for a refurb, when I put a note on Amazon the vendor shipped a replacement.

4:30 Twerp conference. Ended by 5. Too late to go back to The Hole so I went home. Mistake, major traffic that early. No conference tomorrow.

Someone messed with The Hole's electrical shut-off timer and the lights came on in the restrooms and the air conditioning kicked in at about 4 pm. We've been without aircon for a couple of weeks. Today it got to 83° in my lab. Good thing Twerpcon was in Hole 2.

Home, relaxed a bit. When I got out of bed Spot was asleep on my pants (on the floor).

Spook is making some progress, but not enough. Not sure if I should refill the pheromones or pull them.

Took home the dust buster since I won't be needing it at Hole 3. Tried to vacuum one of the cat trees, but it needs a lot more than a portable.

Watched PTI and Happy Hour. NFL channel is starting to get interesting, now that all the training camps are active.

Dinner was a lot of chopped liver & greevin with a peach and a scoop of ice cream for dessert.

Ordered some dry erase markers, sharpies and a new pair of Tevas.

Plans for tomorrow:
Take my time heading home. I have an Andre Norton maxpak on the kindle app, enjoying the somewhat dated language. Maybe park at Starbucks and read.

For Andre Norton, did you get the "Essential Collection" with 14 things, or the Mega-Pack with 15?

Andre Norton: The Essential Collection (14 Books + Bonus Audiobook Links)

As far as I can tell, both collections have the same works, except the Mega-pack also includes the mystery "Murders For Sale."

Have you tried the audio links? I've not re-read some of the Andre Nortons for decades; how did they hold up for you?

Nah, I don't do audio, I want to hear the book in my head.

There is a lot of very dated jargon, he invents slang based on what he imagined space flight would be like, and he was way off base, but it doesn't hurt the story.
