Let's run down the weekend:stina_leicht
came up on Friday to visit and stay with us during a convention. Unfortunately, she got turned around by the Dallas roads and ended up calling twice for guidance. Due to my misunderstanding, I ultimately had to drive out to her and guide her in. We all had a nice visit while she was there after that, tho.
My computer melted down Saturday morning. Required replacing every component but the hard drives and the case to resolve. On the plus side, I basically have a new good gaming rig paid for by the company. Of course, it totally freaked out on Sunday morning, primarily due to the fact that the Intel-standard heatsink wasn't cooling it enough, and it was getting to 100 C, then shutting down. Another trip to the store for an aftermarket heat sink/fan fixed that.
We had the exterminator and the A/C maintenance guys come in Saturday morning/early afternoon as well. The exterminator was in and out quickly. The A/C guys were there for four hours. The unit had mold in it, and the compressor had corroded through. We ultimately ended up having to buy an entire new HVAC unit.
During the recent reflooring that resulted from our little flood right before Christmas, they had to pull up the toilets. I had already put the one in the guest room down, but the one in the master bath sat in our tub until Saturday afternoon. Karina asked me to get it down, so I put the wax seal in place, put the toilet in and was fastening the second bolt when there was a sudden "snap." The base of the bolt had corroded through and would need to be replaced before the toilet could be used. Unfortunately, the only way to replace the bolt is to pull the toilet back up first. So now it sits, waiting for the unwary that may try to sit on it, until I get a chance to go to Lowe's and pick up a replacement wax seal and bolt kit.
Monday, I had to stay home from work so the A/C guys could come and install the new unit. They got it all in with no apparent problems, and it did cool the house nicely, while pulling moisture out of the air. It's quiet, too, which is nice. Unfortunately, as we found when we woke up this morning, the heating unit doesn't seem to work right. It was about 60 degrees at 6:30 this morning, and the "heater" was running, but it was mostly recirculating cool air and warming it just slightly. They're supposed to come out tonight and take a look at it. I think I know what they messed up, so it should be about a ten minute fix, I hope.
