Okay people, as you can now see, there are some additions on the side bar, and a new theme. The theme, well, it’s okay. It’s better than the default. I’m not a HUGE fan, but at least it’s not 3 column, and it isn’t like reading a newspaper sidebar (like the default).
The additions are fairly self explanatory.
The one marked “Weather” is actually a webcam image taken from my house with the current weather info superimposed over the top of it. Clicking on it will give you my weather data.
The one marked “Current Power usage” is also, just that. My power meter is being polled for info every minute, and it’s appending it to a file. This is just the latest record in that file. It’s resolution for power is 10watts, and for time is 1 minute. If I were ajax-y, I could make it auto update. Maybe when I have some time. The “cost” in parenthesis is based on the SUB power rate of $0.0463/KWH. So, assuming I continued to use that same amount of power for an hour, that’s what it would cost.
In other news, I took the day off today to go to the dentist (perfect exam/teeth, as always), run a few errands, and makes some calls to places that are only open during business hours (TED (to unlock the usb port)). Also called Apple and got my battery replaced on my MacBook Pro since it was faulty (covered under the battery exchange they did a few years back). Gotta give the MacStore credit on this one. Called Apple, they opened a case, I went to the MacStore, they ran Apple Hardware Test (which I have never seen work, except this one time when it told the guy my battery was “BAD”), and they replaced my battery right then and there. Cool.
Tara and I bought the tile and thinset today. Go 300lbs of tile and thinset. Getting that in and out of the car was “fun”. Also set up the tile saw that we borrowed from Tara’s uncle months ago. So, hopefully, we’ll have the tile down by the end of the week, and grouted by the end of the weekend. Here’s hopin’.
Talk to you all later!
