What do you mean the nearest Sonic is 30 minutes away?!?

At first I thought it was the cold, but now I’m thinking that I must be allergic to something out here. I wonder what my options are for a sore/scratchy throat…

I think my shredder’s on its last leg. I’ve done a crap-ton of paper, but I don’t recall it ever refusing to work. I’m thinking heat issues.

Handle with care

!@%$($)@_+!! it. If ever in the future I tray again to move myself please stop me. I’ve gone through 2 power supplies and now my video card doesn’t seem to want to cooperate. At this rate I’ll have a whole new computer within the month. :( All of these broken components were not in the budget. Thank goodness I had the (flippant) desire to put the filer and the tv in the truck. In hindsight I should have put my workstation in there as well. Putting it at the very back of the trailer where it would get the most sway, have the most room to move, and get the most scratched up was a bone-headed move. I suppose I should be thankful I didn’t lose any data, though I’m wondering now about the hard drive in the workstation, if it’s going to hold out or not. It’s had a good run, and smart checks out, but it has some smart checksum errors, which is troubling, along with some less than desirable sounds emanating from it. And of course both frys and microcenter were closed by the time I discovered the video problems. Thanks alot ups for delivering my package at like 8pm (12 hours after it was put on the truck).

Home Theater

Check. I guess I should use the lack of a neighbor to its full advantage while I still can. :) Also, my monitors better get here in the morning, else I’m going to be pissed. :)

Washer and Dryer

Hookups complete. Washer cycling now. Dryer initial test looked good. (I had to swap out the dryer cord.) Washer louder than I remember…

Having virtually complete silence in the apartment is definitely a welcome change. For almost a whole week, I didn’t have any computers on. With the rack squirreled away, the living room was completely silent. I powered up my workstation, but it was too noisy compared to the silence. So I bought some new, more silent fans to swap out, and now I can hear my hard drive chatter, which I can’t say I’ve been able to hear in longer than I can remember. :)

Settled In

Posted by Thomas Sat, 06 Feb 2010 19:53:44 +0000

I’m still getting settled in, but am mostly there. Well, all of the essentials are there. :) I’m still trying to nail down stuff like furniture layout, which blocks getting any frames hung. I set up my machines the last part of the week, and found that it looks like I’m pretty well off, but have two dead power supplies. The first casualty of the trip was my phone, which I dropped on the asphalt the night before I left. Needless to say I was pretty upset about that. I left both my two monitors and my two torchiere lamps in Atlanta. I ordered some new lcds once I got here, and I still haven’t found replacement lamps that I like. I’m half wishing I had brought them all with me… But there was no room in the trailer for either. If I gain much more stuff I’ll for sure not be able to fit in a 6′x12′ trailer next time, though I tell myself that I’ll never pull that size of a trailer across the US ever again. We’ll see if I keep the sentiment next time I move. There of course were some scratches on things, which I guess eventually I’ll get used to, though I don’t recall there being so much damage to stuff when I moved to Atlanta. Maybe it was due to less stuff, or the shorter trip, or just a poor memory. Also, the dvd player is having issues, too…
