no internet

So now I’m in the dark ages with no internet access at home and my site (for some reason) is blocked by the firewall at work. So, for the time being, all updates will take place on the weekend when I’m at Amy’s place (like now).

Friday night three power surges hit my apartment while Amy and I were getting ready to watch a DVD. Each time the power snapped off and back on. After the third time half the outlets in the apartment and everything upstairs was dead (including the air conditioning, fridge outlet, and my entire bathroom). There were people from the Power Company and cable companies everywhere in the neighborhood. The next morning we got a personal visit from LADWP who informed us…

Episode 6: “God Hates Mazdas” in The Neverending Saga of the Most Beat Up 18 Month Old Car in the World

I’ve been noticing a weird creaking noise in my brakes lately. This has been going on for more than a few weeks. Also for about the same amount of time my car has stayed on after I turn it off. Not the whole car, but a fan or something. I suspect this has something to do with my flogging the AC for all it is worth on the recent 110+ degree and 60% humidity days. Also there are little floppy…
