Upgrades and Updates

This week was full of upgrades and updates. Here they are, in no particular order:

1. My complooter came on Friday, and I’ve been playing with it ever since! The Latitude D530 is much nicer than my Inspiron 1000 from the stone age (5 years ago), and now I’m just waiting on some software upgrades to come in the mail. Graduate school won’t know what hit it!

4. I finally had a part repaired on my car that has been waiting to get done for at least a year and a half. One fine morning, I started up the ol’ car, pulled on the shifter to get out of park, and the whole thing felt way loose. I took it apart and found that the shifter was cracked. How that happened, I’ll never know, but I was able to rig it up so that it would work as long as we didn’t push the center button. What was worse is that Chevy hadn’t made that part in a couple of decades. I finally tracked one down in a junkyard in Ohio and had it put in on Saturday. It feels so nice to have that finally fixed!

More adventures to come…
