Well, today is going to be a really short story. I have much to finish up and the clock is ticking away. Yesterday was quite a bit of chaos, with our wall of computers needing to be rewired. I suppose it didn’t need to be done, but Keith being Keith, he wanted it done right. Please don’t take that as a complaint, because it isn’t. I am happy that he is so thorough and tries to do things only one way – the right way.
The process of adding the new case to his computer equipment introduced an array of issues that needed to be addressed. One of the most obvious was the organization of the many, many wires that were required from all of our devices. While many of our peripherals are wireless, several of them still need transmitters and wires to work. On that one wall of electronics, we run two computers, TV screen, two sets of speakers including sub woofers, amplifier, equalizer, phone and internet. That is a lot going on in a small space.
When it works, everything is amazing. But getting everything set up properly and keeping the numerous cords and wires neat can be challenging in the least.
I tried to get painting done for a while, but in the middle of the day, my living room, which is also where my paints are kept, looked like this:
Everything was all pulled out and all over everything else. The benches where my paints were kept were covered with
things and I wasn’t able to get to them.
Keith spent most of the day crouched behind things, cleaning, rewiring and reorganizing things so that they were as neat and organized as possible. During this time, our internet and phone were down, which in itself was difficult to deal with.
After a few hours, I had to abandon painting for the day, even though my deadline looms, as I wanted to help him out. It just made it easier and both of us were the ones that were going to benefit from the results.
At the end of the day, everything was back in order and looked great. As we sat down to enjoy the results, Keith noticed an intermittent feedback noise that is occurring. That isn’t good and today he is spending the day trying to trouble shoot it, which involves testing the components one by one. It will be very tedious for him to pinpoint.
As for me, I have no choice but to finish my submission today. Time is up and I have to get it done and stay up until it is. I am grateful that I have a good idea of what I want to accomplish, so all I need to do is implement my ideas. I did paint a couple of ornaments before I gave up so that is good.
I wish you all a good day today. Hopefully things will go smoothly and I will have good reports tomorrow. We can only do our best.
Have a great day today.
