Here is what's been going on lately.
I am writing this on bender. Usually, I log in to parabel from work to do LJ stuff. True to what I said on saturday, I have not even powered that machine on. Used my laptop all weekend, which was tough because I left the charger at work. I found a ThinkPad charger that happened to fit in the socket. It did not charge the battery, but it seemed to keep it from losing charge. My batteries are charging now.
Two of the last three shipments are arriving today. Power supply, heatsinks, and fans. I have heard nothing from the vendor that I made the big order from. This has all the computer parts, motherboard, cpus, disks. Worse yet, their website appears to be gone. This is worrying. But I have made some contact with them. One week ago, I called them and gave them a new credit card because they didn't accept the other one. Still, worrying that nothing has happened since I got 3day shipping. I will call today after work.
There is a five hour meeting at work that is slightly related to my current project. Too bad my palm pilot has no wireless capabilities.
Das ubersturm is on the way, if you believe the weather conspiracy. They also promise 80 degree temperatures for the rest of the week. It must be a trick.
