Things Fall Apart, The Centre Cannot Hold

Still too hot. It hit 36C/98F today, and it's 32/91 right now. On the bright side, I've been reminded by this to give my computer's case a long-overdue cleaning. What I really need is some compressed air, but that'll have to wait. It was fine enough under sane temperature conditions that I'd more or less forgotten when I last popped the case and checked things out. Really, part of the heat trouble is the ambient heat here, part of it is WoW threatening to melt the graphics card on a regular basis, and part of it is the layout of this room. I don't know if I really have the space for a tower case this big in here. Luckily I'd always planned to replace it with a laptop anyway, possibly even this fall of Students Finance is kind and allows me the grant they lay out specifically for that purpose.

In similar news - my cell phone fell apart today. I'd noticed a crack in the case right at the flip joint one night recently, and then another night it wouldn't close properly, and then this afternoon the thing just separated entirely. I had meant to replace it anyway, but now I seem to have a bit more impetus to do so. Rogers' site, being as reliable as always, won't yet tell me whether I'm eligible for an upgrade. Hopefully I am. It would soothe my soul immensely. In the meantime, my cell phone is unusable. Since only one or two of you usually contacted it, this changes very little, but it seemed a good idea to inform people.

Lessons learned from seeing The Witches of Eastwick yesterday:

  • a) If you go to the trouble of making a voodoo doll of somebody who will be able to figure it out, just kill them. Seriously. When you stop torturing them and they come find you, you'll wish you had.
  • b) If you ignore lesson a), at the very least keep track of the damned thing so that you don't get blamed when said somebody's dog gets a hold of the doll and puts them through significant additional tortures despite your lack of resolve.

For about the last week, it's been around 39C so be glad you're not in Texas!

As if I needed any more reasons to be happy not to be in Texas. :P

Chad's been mocking us with the 118 degree highs in Las Vegas.

Perhaps someone made a cell phone voodoo doll?
