    Re: 3 Positive Things Part 5

    1. Got a power recliner sofa and chair set at the Salvation Army for only $90.
    2. Was worried someone would get hurt moving the sofa up the porch stairs, but my husband and his friend were contagiously optimistic.
    3. Reclining comfortably, and the cats are not scratching the sofa

    Hope you scanned it meticulously for little potentially "uninvited house guests" that often come with used furniture. There was a good thing about DDT it almost eradicated bedbugs from the planet permanently.... ALMOST... Now they're back with a vengeance


    Reclining comfortably, and the cats are not scratching the sofa...

    ...Yet

    (That reminds me of the picture of the cat sticking his head out through the sofa, from the inside)

    1. Rode my bike around the block.
    2. Remembered twice today that my "2" key doesn't work, before I pressed it.
    3. Have pre-chopped some veges for tonight's dinner so there's slightly less to prepare.

    What's your "2" key?

    This one ^

    I spilled water on it last month, took it apart, dried it out, but that key and my full stop key were somehow shorted together so I couldn't press one without the other. I sacrificed the 2/@ and remapped it so it wouldn't be a problem most of the time. Now it's just a dead key. My keyboard (not shown above) has a numpad so writing '2' is fine as long as I remember to use the numpad one rather than the dead one. But I really should remap it to something usable so that I don't have to copy/paste @ whenever I want to use that.

    “Interesting” is it a stand-alone keyboard? If so you can get a decent one for a reasonable price. Think of it as a simple system upgrade

    It is, but it's an ergonomic keyboard which wasn't/isn't all that cheap for a keyboard. Had it for about 12 years so I'm very used to it and set in my ways using it, with its exact height on my exact same desk height. One dead number key can be dealt with There was a bit of existing corrosion on the PCBs so I'll have to upgrade eventually, but I can probably squeeze a few more years out of it... further water incidents outstanding.

    1. Staying in perspective about my knee being sore during/after a day of rigorous sitting, post bike ride yesterday.
    2. Weekend time.
    3. Coming up with some positives.

    1. My face didn't get as sunburnt as my arms today from the unexpectedly long walk.
    2. The hot leaking water has cooled to warm. So I turned off the correct switch, and the flow rate can't be toooo high if it's still above cold tap temp 12 hours later.
    3. My bedroom is the furthest room away from the trucks which are still dumping gravel on the train tracks this evening... Although I'm concerned that they'll move closer to this side of the building since the track wraps around.
    4. Doing a couple of extra positives because half of the ones above are still kind of being sarcastic. Sometimes takes a while to get into the spirit of the exercise
    5. I did a pretty good job with calling the plumber this morning without staying in an avoidy anxious mode.
    6. My dodgy sticky tape contraption held up all day. Only as complex as it needs to be. #engineeringskillz

    Re: 3 Positive Things Part 5

    1 - on the "rig-a-ma-jig" Great job! I Wouldn't put it on your "resumé" if looking for a new engineering position though but quick thinking

    2 - How old is that thing? Looks like it's almost as old as you are

    3 - What the heck is that thing anyway? I'm hoping it is a water boiler for space heating also, Because 90c max / 80c recommended operating temperature for a hot water tank seems insane!
