pretty lazy day here. fixed a game cube that i gave my BIL years ago. he just wanted the case originally to swap his into and just took it home and set it on the shelf. after recently trying to repair one i realized it would be a easy fix. just needed to adjust the potentiometer for the laser and it was working like new. had to lower it to 400ohm. also blew it out before reassembling it. now if only the system i had was that easy to fix. had to turn the potentiometer all the way down to 75ohm for it to read a disk sometimes with the new laser. should be in the 150-600ohm range depending on the system. ordered another new laser to try and hope to get it working like it should. also still waiting on parts to start modding it. i hate waiting for parts to arrive but its not like some of the stuff is readily available locally.

Of course not, you can go back to the bars, patronize loose women and wind up in jail............... your choice.

Dug up a few dandelions that had started to grow in the garden.
Picked wind blown paper and plastic in the back alley, maybe that will entice the neighbours to do the same. Don't like seeing the alley like a garbage dump.

The start of the whole house generator installation happened today when they built a wooden frame out of 2x6's at the edge of the house. This is a good time to order a generator. It's not cold and it's not in hurricane season.

Thats the way it should be.. He does for you, and you do for him. I like that. Fair and honest....and I try to live by those words.



But in my life, I am forever doing for others,helping, fixing, and while doing that, I am a great guy. BUT, don't ask any of them for a favor, or you will endure a movie-length run of excuses, ranging from how bad their knee hurts, to how bad their wife treats them,to how tough their job is, to who has to take the dog out for a ****. And sorry to say this includes family. Funny to say that they only know your phone number when something is broken.
I still have my brother's Ex_wife calling for help fixing her (used to be his, actually)stuff. Really?

Life is short, so if you don't have the strength to laugh at yourself,
call me.....I'll laugh at you!

I used to be like that, I had to learn to say no or die.

Toms, I bought the Generac generator from Home Depot, but the company installing is CDS Home Services and they use a lot of subcontractors. McAllister plumbing is doing the gas line work today, running a line inside the house and out to the spot where the generator will sit. They will also be rehooking up the gas lines after Baltimore Gas and Electric (BGE) installs the larger meter.
