Day 114

I got my car back from the shop today. The repairs cost a little more than I had hoped, but at least I didn't wreck the loaner car. I've been nervous about driving loaner cars ever since I drove one of them straight into a pole before I could even get out of the dealership parking lot. A word to the wise about cars: if you're thinking of buying a new one, make sure you get the longest, most comprehensive extended warranty you can find. Hopefully, all the expensive stuff will break while your car is still under warranty. It was only after the warranty ran out that I began to realize just how expensive owning a Land Rover can be.

My air conditioner repair got postponed for another day. It turns out it was too cold to fix an air conditioner today. I guess it would make sense to wait, especially since I had the furnace on most of the day. Instead of waiting around for the air conditioner repairman this morning, I should have gone over to the storage warehouse and paid the rent on my storage room for another year. I forgot that my year was up at the end of March and now they've padlocked my space. Oh well. One more thing to add to my "to do" list for tomorrow.

One of my clients wants me to create a Powerpoint show that will run on one of those digital picture frames you see on everybody's desk these days. It probably isn't even worth trying to explain that digital picture frames were made to display a series of JPEG images from digital cameras. They weren't designed to play Powerpoint shows. Nobody ever believes me when I say something can't be done though. They just think I'm being lazy. Maybe I am. I've been down this road before. I know I'll spend several days trying to figure out how to make this silly idea work and then my client will think that all I did was press a few buttons and won't want to pay for it.
