Song: “Thanks But No Thanks” by Sparks
I’m almost sure that I did up a post last night but it’s not here and it’s not on my computer, so I guess I didn’t.
The last two days have gone by very quickly. I did some surgery on the printer yesterday and now all the little internal fans have been replaced by two big external fans. It’s a lot quieter now and I think everything is working well. I did a test print and there wasn’t any fire or weird smells, so the printer is back in service. Plus, I made sure the smoke detector above the printer is still working. Just in case.
I’ve also been working a lot on electronics stuff. I’ve got a little mp3 player module that I’ve hooked an Arduino up to to control. It reads an SD card and can select tracks, change volume, start, pause… bahahaha, just kidding – all I can get it to do is send a -1 back to the Arduino. I’m pretty sure I’m missing something simple and I’ll figure it out when I take a run at it again tomorrow.
Almost all of the snow is gone – it got up to +9C or something like that today, with a clear blue sky.
I tweaked something in my back yesterday when I was working on the printer – I kept dropping screws and did something dumb when I went to pick them up. Yeesh.
I think I’m going to volunteer again at the church tomorrow afternoon for a little while. I like being able to help people, and I really like that it’s very close to home and I’m only going there once a week. Things might change, but for now I think I’m comfortable with how the setup is working.
I made oatmeal this morning for the first time in… five years? Seven? Anyway, I badly miscalculated how much the oatmeal would puff up, so I ended up eating a LOT of oatmeal for breakfast. I put in a spoon of brown sugar and a spoon of peanut butter and it was really quite tasty.
J and I have been watching The Good Place again now that the new season is out. They’ve really changed the formula this season but so far it’s been pretty good. I think the whole cast is good, but Ted Danson and D’Arcy Carden are pretty amazing.
So tomorrow I’m doing the volunteer stuff at the church, but beyond that I’m not sure what’s going on. Hopefully it’s nice out again.
