    The length of pipe which goes out from the house to the ground is about four feet in length, but is covered in a plastic casing which leaves ample room for air to sit inside. I purchased my own pipe heating kit from a hardware store today, and once I held the device in my hands and read the instructions that I realized that I couldn't install the wire until the air temperature is 15 degrees, and that I likely would need to cut that plastic casing so that I could place the heating element onto the ...

    At about 3AM this morning I heard a loud noise near the room I was in, as if it was some kind of scratching. It didn't take long for me to think of the sump pump nearby and wondered if that sound I heard was the same as I heard last time, and sure enough it was the issue at hand. It seems that some portion of the tubing has frozen up from the weather and now nothing can be pumped out. Before going to bed, I spent the remainder of my time scooping water out of the basin using a gallon milk jug which ...

    It is never too cold to be hustled. I hope you two enjoy the $20 you got for coming to our house with your shovels in hand, and that your theft by abandonment means that I will turn everyone down from this point forward. I hope that $20 buys you both some like a nice case of Natty Light or a good pair of dime bags. Consider it my Christmas gift to you both.

    Tonight is meetup night for D3. Until this weekend my two co-players and I were on every night, and there was finally a break ...

    The snow, oh the snow. So much snow. Will there be enough snow to fall tonight to compel the store to close tomorrow? I doubt it, though I think that overall it will be as bad at the upcoming point as it was a few years ago when the sudden snowstorm did force the store to close. I guess I'll find out.

    Songs. I woke up with my wife at 4AM so that I had enough time to do some shoveling before driving her to work, and I think I'm simply tired as of the point of the session and writing ...

    The first portion of the day at work entailed me sorting through a lot of calendars, and I didn't manage to get it all set in place before I was called away to do other things. The store was subdued by heavy traffic in what's probably everyone nervously anticipating the coming weather, so it's just as well for me to have been out there to be of assistance.

    In light of the weather, I'm retiring a bit early so that I can wake up and shovel.

    Songs. Things looked a bit ...

    Today wasn't all that good of a day overall. There was an incident at work in which I was given an extra task to do, and, long story short, I ended up accidentally throwing someone's hoodie into the trash compactor. I haven't yet faced any kind of disciplinary action, and I will want to strongly argue my side if it does in fact come, but that doesn't change the fact that I do feel sorry and awful for having committed the mistake. It wasn't intentional. This unfolded during my lunch hour, and sooner ...

    It seems that I may need to get a VGA-HDMI cord if I want to use my PS3 on the monitor that I have set up in front of my elliptical machine. Even though the PS3 has the same universal Sony output as the PS2 and PS1 has, putting that signal to the component-VGA converter box doesn't emit a signal when I have the PS3 on it. Also, I have a DVI-HDMI cord that I hooked up to the monitor directly, but it responded by showing "input not supported" on the screen. That's a bummer for now, but I ...

    Stayed up way too late on the game, but I did it to get at least one of each class to 60. This process would have taken days on PC, unless I undertook multiboxing, and it only took a few hours to do on PS3. A waste of time either way is an opinion to have, but now that I've done this I can return the Cain's armor to my friends and not need to undertake that task ever again.

    For something to watch with dinner my wife put on the Doctor Who episode of The Christmas Invasion, which was ...

    It seems that I didn't hit the post button properly for this entry, which I guess might be just as well because I probably would have forgotten about the end of the month glitch this does with predating a post. This time, though, there wasn't even a post in limbo so I'm not sure what I did wrong. I didn't even have anything to drink at this point. Weird. Oh well.

    2013 concludes with me sitting here in the basement writing this as my wife sleeps upstairs, as she was too tired to stay ...

    The discipline I currently lack is that I willingly let myself sleep in on days where I know I'll have something to do after waking up, or at least not prioritizing things properly so that I can assuredly get my exercise done immediately and then get on with the rest of my day. Today's example is that I was up until 4AM with friends on D3, then was woken up at 11AM so that my wife and I could attend a showing of the second Hobbit movie. After doing that and spending the rest of the day so far on ...

    Short session today, had things to do and company to meet now.

    I figured I might as well cut it short before things take a turn for the worst after my play of New York. Squandering the small increases by failing Horizon and Broken My Heart didn't help matters.

    I have become a recipient of a major set of gear in PS3 D3. My crit rate is still relatively low, but considering that I've received what I have mostly from donations and that I've still played the game for a grand total of a week, I think I'm extremely fortunate to be where I currently stand. Now, the question is how much farther can I push things.

    The weather was actually rather nice today, so when I was summoned to assist with getting some carts corralled, I didn't hesitate to ...

    It's 950AM and I set the coffee machine up in the breakroom to make a new pot while I walk to the front of the store and see my wife off to lunch. I manage to catch her just before she leaves, then return to the breakroom to have my coffee. When I get back, I hear two women inside complaining about how strong the coffee is, with one concluding in saying that there's just some people out there who like it so strong. I guess I need to tone it down a bit.

    In other work news, the hour ...

    We watched the Doctor Who end of 11 Christmas special and neither me or my wife were particularly impressed with much of any of it. The single word which she used to describe the episode, and I have to agree with, is "lame". It's rather odd how the 50th Anniversary episode was something we felt was rather good, only for this episode to be subsequently aired.

    I've had Diablo 3 on PS3 for six days. As of last night, my Wizard has already reached 60 and a few paragon levels, ...

    New speakers are set up and function very well. Finally, we can view and play stuff on that TV at a reasonable volume without having it crackle and pop like breakfast cereal.

    The D3 binge continues. It should be over once my one friend is back in school.

    Songs were rather good today, yet again thankfully. What's interesting is that 隠蓑之坊 is the only song which I passed. Everything else was pain. That's a good thing, at least while I don't ...
