April Update

Yup, no updates lately… typical me. But we have baseball season going, which has kept us rather busy, along with work and other things. Things are going great down here in RGV and we are looking forward to a nice HOT summer (not!).

Over the Easter weekend, Laura and I had a spontaneous idea to go up to Corpus for a few days. We left on Thursday after work and then came back on Saturday. It was a nice getaway and we got to enjoy the Lexington again as well as the Aquarium.

This last weekend I had the “oh so fun” joy of troubleshooting my main computer at home. On Thursday and Friday morning I would come into my office and the machine would be off. Then on Friday night it was off again, so I turned it back on and after about 10 minutes it shut off. I spent some time Saturday morning and afternoon taking out components, trying to narrow down the problem piece. I got it narrowed down to either the motherboard, CPU or power supply. I didn’t have any spares for those items so I decided to start with the cheapest of the three and went to Best Buy to get a new power supply. That ended up fixing it. The PS that was in the computer was the one that came with the case, so it was an ultra cheapy. This new one I got should last a good while. I was very happy to not have to buy and swap out the motherboard :)

It’s now Thursday, having lunch today with the office folks for “Administrative Professionals Day”, which should be nice. This weekend I’d like to get several things done around the house, we’ll see how that goes.
