@networkn my wife has a set that cost a fortune but she doesn't let me use them in the garage for some reason.

Sorry Apple!

 

I've had two sets of Gen 2 AirPods replaced by Apple without question due to a clicking noise that develops in the left ear bud when exercising. I went for a run this morning without music for the first time in ages. Clicking still there! 

 

Apparently my left makes a clicking noise when I run and there was likely nothing wrong with either set of AirPods.

Your left ... ? Ear?





Sometimes I just sit and think. Other times I just sit.

My kids went back to school today (High School - one Junior High and the other Senior High). 

 

 

 

The younger one gets off the bus first and the teachers are there to greet them, clapping to celebrate the return of the students. 

 

Eldest sent us a text as he was still on bus going to next drop off point and he said it was "gay as"...

 

 

 

I think it's brilliant. 

 

 





Handsome Dan Has Spoken.

 

Handsome Dan is currently WFH.

 

Handsome Dan is perplexed...and a little stir crazy.

 

Handsome Dan is well and truly over Home Detention...

 

Some people were just born stupid.

Getting to play Squash yesterday! Rusty, and sore today, but totally worth it.

Back at work today, which means back in walking distance of a certain shop with doughnuts and chips. I am suitably engorged.

I made my first Hackintosh today. It was remarkably easy and (almost) everything works.

 

 

... except WiFi? ;-) Congrats!

 

 

Bluetooth / Wifi card arrived today. Everything works now. Very happy

The littlest Handle turned 6 today. We're still locked down but we had half a dozen friends organise to do a drive by in convoy to drop off gifts. Then a zoom call with friends and family from all over the world to sing happy birthday and blow out her candles.

She's had a neat day and is very happy. I'm feeling privileged to have such great friends and family.

Playing with my 70 year old lathe trying to turn a length of brass rod to get as close to 3.500" to use as a setup guide and getting 3.497"

(0.07mm)

Combination of a lot of care and healthy slice of good fortune

After 3 weeks putting "one feed" rat bait out and checking it daily, the last lot of bait I put out has been untouched for 3 days.
