Friday Featurette #317

The Husband and The Wife enjoying a moment togetherI upgraded WordPress the software which runs this blog earlier this week. According to the documentation, it was a “major” version update; but, so far, I haven’t discovered any new features. Still I’m sure that there will quick succession of “minor” releases to fix whatever is broken. Hopefully this site will not be affected by any of the inevitable bugs. Have a great weekend.

Wednesday Weirdness #317

I spoke with a customer service agent today who was very helpful. They understood exactly what my issue was and why the standard repair kit was not suitable for my situation. That shouldn’t be noteworthy; but, for me, is a rare experience. Especially when the resolution requires a full replacement of the affected item.

Monday Monologue #317

An interior monologue from me (and sometimes the wife).

  • Sunday was warm and sunny so we were at least able to run in the park. Unfortunately, the river was too high to row from all the rain. And it’s supposed to snow later tonight. It was expected; but still frustrating since yesterday had great weather for December.
  • I updated the database that supports this blog to the latest version. The upgrade with amazingly smooth even for a “major” upgrade. Something may be broken; but, everything I’ve checked looks good.
  • We dropped from the 92nd percentile to the 98th percentile in the energy efficiency score our electric utility has recently started distributing. I’m sure it’s just a computer program; but I don’t think we’re actually being compared with comparable households.
  • I need to go to the car wash and get the salt off my car. Unfortunately, it always seems to be snowing or raining. Sunday was dry. But the car wash I like was closed and now the weather is wet again. We’re really not liking the last few weeks of fall.
