End of Pilot...

It has been determined that our department's participation in the 4/10 experiment shall end on schedule. Have mixed feelings about this.

Not having everyone else on the same schedule caused problems. And, I am so totaled on Friday that half the day is wasted trying to recover (blame that on old age). On the other hand, I supposed my body would have gotten used to the schedule, and having perpetual 3+ day weekends was starting to grow on me.

Maybe one day, if management actually puts all the pieces together...

Brokage Sinkage

Okay, the sink trap was leaking... and this one is an old nightmare. Old wall connections don't like new sink connections; 1.5" > 1.25", and out of alignment. Wrestled with it for a few hours.

My old back hurts...

Ah, been negligent...

Wow, time flies when you're not having fun. Well, it hasn't been all bad, I guess;
- Politics: who to believe?
- Economy: when do I hit the panic button (not now!)
- Job: tied to #1 and #2
- Dell XPS notebook decided it didn't want to work anymore. After a (fairly) pleasant e-chat with tech support, they will send someone out to replace the LCD and motherboard. Guessing it is related to video, but don't know which end. No VGA out, so guessing the motherboard.
- An outing with the Flickr! folk. That was a nice half-day. Learned a lot.
