It's always something

Over the weekend I got very industrious.  On Saturday I took apart all the wiring for the computers and network in my office, cleaned everything and rewired so I don't have tons of wires on the floor.  It looks so much better. 

However, every good deed has consequences... yesterday I checked my work computer.  (I leave both of my computers on all the time) and I found it had gone into the "hibernate" state. That should not happen.    I have it set to run all the time, not hibernate.  It should only hibernate when running on the battery.

A bit of checking showed it was indeed running off battery power,  not through the charger.  Oh joy.  Further checking shows that the charger is working, so it must be the internal power jack or its connection to the motherboard.  The power jack is in the upper right hand corner of the machine.  Here is what I need to do to get in there and check it out.   Yep, pretty much have to tear the sucker apart.  And that may not even fix it. 

How delightful. 


So, it's Monday.  This morning I headed out to get coffee and go to the grocery store to pick up odds and ends needed for meals this week. I stopped at the gas station to fill up my car.  This is a station with 16 pumps.  I was the only person there. 

I filled my car and got back in it.  I had just put my credit card back in my purse.  Hadn't even had time to turn on my ipod when someone honks at me. 

I look in my rear view mirror and there is an idiot behind me who wants me to move!  He's pulled right up behind me.  I look around, there is NO ONE else at the station. There are 15 other pumps free to use and he is right on my tail honking at me. 


I was seriously tempted to get out of my car and go ask what he wanted.  I should have.  But I hadn't had my coffee yet and it would not have ended well. 


I do hope your weekend and Monday are going well.  Someone should be having a good day somewhere.

1 Sorry to hear about the laptop issues. Hrrmph.

15 empty pumps & he pulls in behind you? Ignore him. Even idiots will eventually go to another pump.

Eventually. :^)

2 Reminds me of the joke about how to keep an idiot in suspense. ;-)
