It’s been a while since I posted, so there’s actually going to be a few posts in a row here.
First, just a house and home update. We just sold our bird, Pablo, to someone else in the area. $20 for all his stuff, which easily was over $100 is equipment. It’s going to be weird to not have him wake us up anymore. But, he’s a pretty noisy bird, so all and all, it’s a good thing. He is/was a probably 10-12 year old Parakeet. Yeah, they don’t normally live that long, but they can apparently live to be 20-25, so I guess we’re just “lucky”. =)
I replaced the webcam, so the image on the front page should “work” now. Though, this camera has a bad habit of making the sky purple with the macam drivers. It’s an Intel CS430 PC Camera Pro. It’s ancient, but it works. I have another camera I might try later, but at this point, it should work.
I haven’t been working on my website in a while, but I hope to start that again soon. There are some errors in the code for the summary of power data (mainly the power used since last reading).
We’re going to have the plumbing installed for a laundry sink end of this week. It’ll be sweet to get a sink down there. I hope to install an RO filter under it, so that I have clean water for plants (carnivorous plants, as well as epiphytic orchids prefer squeaky clean water). Once we have the plumbing installed Tara’s going to build a cabinet for the sink, and we’ll buy the sink (Thermocast Kensington). It’s pretty sweet, it has an integrated washboard.
All and all, that’s about it. I’ll hopefully post more tonight or tomorrow about work related stuff. Since 10.6 has shipped since my last post, and a few other things have happened.
