Saturday 9 January 2010
Saturday - up in Martinez, doing various chores at the old house. It's quiet and sad to be there alone. The gray and cold weather doesn't help, though I relit the furnace to make the place warm enough to work in.

Mostly I'm cleaning - the walls have 20+ years of tobacco stains. Cleansers tested:
  1. Joy
  2. Windex
  3. Scrubbing bubbles
  4. Formula 409
  5. TSP
TSP (which I thought stood for tri-sodium phosphate, but which claims has "no phosphate's') wins the cleaning contest, hands down.

Friday - on the road, up to Martinez. Light posting until I'm back.

Four Recent Computer Support Successes & One Failure:

Sunday 3 January_2010

Sunday - Filled a trash bin with stuff from the "computer room". I just ran out of space in there, and decided to get hard hearted and toss those Win98SE upgrade disks, and a bunch of stuff from even earlier.

You can now walk about in the room, rather than hopping from clear spot to clear spot.

Also threw out a bunch of old paperback novels.

Saturday 2 January 2010
Saturday - a relaxing day. Hung out, met up with friends, did chores.

Friday 1 January 2010
Friday - Happy New Year!

Put in a full days work, then headed north to Lancaster. Not much traffic, even on the 405.
