I need a new theme

Posted: April 1st, 2009 | Author: | Tags: | 3 Comments »

Do I need a new theme? Or should I just modify this one that I’m currently running? I’ve had an idea to at least replace the heading banner but just don’t have the time to do the work.

Ideas, please!

No more nightly updates

I was very busy with packing for a trip last night, and couldn’t do my nightly update. I gave it some more thought and came to the conclusion that in all likelihood I couldn’t keep it up anyway. So, I’m going to stop calling them “night cap”s and just put a random post on whenever I get a chance – I guess this is no different than before!

After buying an espresso machine recently, I thought I was all set for my caffeine fix. But I realized today that the other half of the equation is the grind otherwise you just can’t make good espresso.

Following my problems with the battery, I bought a new battery and went about installing it. Here are the simple steps (that took me about 45 minutes to complete):

  1. disconnect the current battery
  2. unmount the current battery
  3. mount the new battery
  4. connect the new one

And now: Car 1 – Khosrow 1

update: here are some links where other people have chronicled similar battery problems they were having.

Night Cap – December 15, 2008

This morning I woke up to the same story as the past few days. Dead car battery, and the cold. And I followed my routine of hooking up the autostarter and giving the car some juice.

Well, it turns out that the problem is just lousy batteries that the manufacturer put in the cars. People are having problems with them at around the same mileage that I have! Anyway, that’s how the day started.

Rest of the day went on as normal (read: boring)

Final act of the day:
