My home laptop computer is down again - the connector comes off the monitor on a regular basis (every 6 months or so) requiring a trip to the repair place to reseat it... At $50 "diagnostic fee", each visit, you would think at some point I could diagnose it for them, or have them teach me to do the connector reseat, but no - I think that they think they have a good thing going... As long as it doesn't happen during the 3-month warrantee period, they make money every time!
Anyway, so no new posts for a few days - not that I've got anything to post... You might have heard we've got a heat wave going here. There is an annual contest to name the date, hour and minute it breaks 100F at the airport, and this year it managed to wait till June 2nd to do it - later than normal. But since then, today was the 13th day this month over that number - it is 108F as I write this at 3:30pm... And yes, it will get hotter the next couple days. I hear that it will be 112F tomorrow and hotter still on Monday, possibly reaching 116F. At least we don't live in Phoenix - a few degrees warmer with its lower elevation, it is supposed to be over 120 Monday. As a result, the streets are pretty deserted as most everyone is hunkered down behind their air conditioned walls. The extended forecasts don't show the highs dropping below 105F for well over a week! Good think it is "a dry heat"! At least I should have my computer back by then...
