E-20- Adventures In Fail

This video was a LONG time in the making and represents a lot of fail and frustration however I finally did manage to make forward progress.

Lots To Do Even Though I’m Sick

Somehow it just isn’t right.  I’m sick, have been sick for over two weeks now.  Yet does that get me a break?

NO!

Not only do I have work of my own to do, some of which includes deadlines, I also have the never ending flow of people asking me to do assorted little “favors” for them.  Now normally I don’t mind a certain amount of this because it’s good PR for me.  However when I’m sick I honestly don’t feel quite so generous.

When Harry came by needing help finding a part for his tv I was ok taking a few minutes to search one up for him.  Then Ralph came by a bit later needing me to read reviews on phenteripped so that he could decide if Mr. Helpful’s suggestion that he try it for weight loss was ok to go ahead and do.

That’s when I lost it.  Mr. Helpful may have a habit of coming up with weird solutions but he always does his homework and makes sure that it’s at least technically “safe”.

Besides, I figure that after all this time of me showing him how, Ralph ought to be able to find those reviews and read them for his bloody self.

Then again, some people have proven incapable of learning.

Being Sick Sucks

It’s actually only been about two weeks or so but it feels like I’ve had this miserable cough / chest cold for half of forever.

EVERY time I go to sleep (which is fairly often because I can’t seem to get enough rest) I wake up within an hour and a half or so, coughing like mad.  So much so that for the first minute or two I literally cannot inhale.

This coughing and gagging, spitting up phlegm & such then continues for the larger part of half an hour.  By the time I can breathe easy again without more coughing I’m so tired, my ribs hurt like mad and all I want to do is go back to sleep.

I Wonder how the hell I’m going to get anything done?

Screen Cleaning

I have been enjoying the new laptop a lot.  Not only is it so much more powerful than any other computer I have owned so far to date, I also love the fact that it’s portable.  That portability alone has saved me a lot of aggravation and allowed me to get some stuff done that I would otherwise not have been able to do because I was not home to do it.

There is, however, one down side that I have discovered recently and that would be the screen.  Don’t get me wrong, it’s not too small or hard to read at all.  The problem concerns what to do when that screen needs to be cleaned.

You see, my desktop machine’s screen is easy to clean.  I get out some glass cleaner and a soft rag and go at it just like I would clean glass windows.  However the laptop screen isn’t made of glass or anything that even comes close to glass in terms of how durable it is.

Just the lightest possible touch of the surface of the screen shows that doing so affects the image.  That surface is flexible and made of some type of plastic material.  Because of this, I am very hesitant to use a good strong glass cleaner on it because damaging it in any way is the LAST thing I want to do.

So I spent some time searching around for answers and came up with what should have been obvious, a Screen Cleaning Pad that’s made for use with laptop and notebook screens.  It’s able to clean the thing without damaging or scratching it.

And what’s more, I found it on sale for a mere six dollars.  I find that in particular to be amazing since normally I have found that things made for taking care of newer technology almost always end up having much higher price tags than their older technology counterparts.

Still, Knowing how things like that often work, I think I will lay in a larger than normal supply of them just in case I should suddenly find out that the manufacturer has decided that they are worth SO much more and changes the price accordingly.
