P is 12 next Sunday and one of the nice things about her birthday is the fireworks. They of course are all the better for dropping to half-price by today. To my right there is a serious amount of explosives and included in there is the biggest firework I’ll have ever lit. It says to stay away at least 75 feet – if I do that then I’ll be igniting it under a tree! Sparklers and persistence of vision rule though.
New HD goes back tomorrow for replacement. Started it up earlier to backup a stack of data and it clunked a bit. I could hear it reading the drive. Email to company, get one back inside 10 mins saying that I should send it back for a replacement. Not bad, not bad at all. It’s quiet writing, just noisy reading but I’d rather it was just plain quiet.
