  1. LB log - 2017 Week 20

    A tap on his mirror from my door. Ten minutes of discussion afterward. I better find a way out of this soon.

    Social obligations was the theme of the off days for this week. I knew I was due for a visit to the parent's place to see them and the children, and with Mother's Day coming on the weekend, I didn't think I could postpone it any longer. From there I immediately went home to eat dinner and just as quickly get out the door to congregate with my friend for another night of dual ...

    I just won't go through that door anymore. I basically don't ever have to, really. I should have known better anyway.

    The aspect to the fallout which is raising the most eyebrows is the garnishment. I'm being told that I should call the local representative. I really don't think I will, though. I'm doing what I think is the appropriate way to accept responsibility for my mistake. He really doesn't need to make references of future new hires coming in to reinforce his point, though. ...

  3. LB log - 2017 Week 18

    Nothing says Happy Monday like putting a gash in your truck. Was there fallout from it? Oh yes, there was. A lot of talking. A substantial amount of talking. There'll be a garnishment but I still stay employed there. For now. Yay.

    One more week where I can't let it go. Well, it's not like it wasn't without some attempts to make a kind of progress on things. I did send out messages and emails to a few people, and I made a few calls. The direct responses were limited (albeit the ones ...

  4. LB log - 2017 Week 17

    On the way in to start the work week, I'm idling at a stop light and the car starts to have much stronger vibration than normal. After a bit of this, the check engine light starts to flash, as opposed to merely be on. Once I start rolling it resumes being normal, but that's not good enough for me. I pop the hood once I arrive at work and take a peek. The reservoir for the coolant is bone dry, and, much more disturbingly, the oil level shows it to seemingly be below the add level. It almost looked ...

  5. LB log - 2017 Week 16

    He pointed out to me that he noticed that I never work the sixth day at the job. Yes, I don't. I've found that the job pushes my physical tolerance to its limits, as stated here repeatedly before.

    It's been several years since I've handled a new computer for personal use at home, and I had forgotten the sensation of starting off fresh and getting old programs downloaded for the first time and all the rest of fun with the initialization. As it turns out, it's been convenient for me ...

    What a relief to have this week transpire without anything particularly interesting to happen in it.

    I ordered a PC and it came in this Thursday. Maybe I'll have time to set it up and make sure it works tomorrow before work, as I have a late start that day. Considering the equipment it has I think the price of $130 was very acceptable. I'll be looking to put it to good use. In related news, my curiosity to see if it was available led me to quickly purchase two names. A similar name ...

    The roof is done. I don't need no water either, but I'd also like to not see the mother fucker burn. Now that I've typed that, look forward to me reporting on a meteor strike next week. Or an appliance that sparks up and spreads.

    Her car took $700 this week. They didn't catch the ignition last time. I guess that's how cars are, where you can't really do too much in the line of preventative maintenance outside of the typical things and stave problems off before they arise.

  8. LB log - 2017 Week 13

    After a lot of time without doing anything, I've started to make some serious research and initiative steps into some side projects that I've had in mind, one of which I've mentioned long ago but never had much faith in being anything worthwhile to do. The variances in my body's physical condition is making me realize that I cannot stay driving for the remainder of my working days. I'll crack like a fragile pane of glass.

    This weekend had a lot of necessary home repairs get done. ...

  9. Prototypes Found: Rolling Thunder 3 (arcade) & DC Vs. SNK (arcade)

    Two prototypes for the arcade have been found. The first two Rolling Thunder games did appear in arcades, but not the third. Unless you count a 1993 location test.

    Rolling Thunder 3's prototype was about completed and was ready to ship if it had done well at loketest. Namco had some of their System 2 board sets left over when they decided to move the Final Lap series to System R for its next game. Unfortunately, fighting games were stiff competition for most other genres at the ...

    Cats are assholes, right? So it's said? Aloof and unaffectionate, right? Well, what happens if that's the kind of thing I want and don't get instead? I only have two days off of work if I allow myself that luxury. I'm away from the house 65 hours per week otherwise. I'm the only person awake during night hours. This cat wants me to interact with him the entire time I'm home and awake on my days off. I feel like I should be doing other things but I keep petting the cat, and getting pestered by the ...

    This week, it is the garage door opener which is in revolt. I suppose I should have been more proactive in making adjustments to it while it was refusing to close after the foundation settlement caused the ground surface to be uneven and seemingly rise. Welp, $500 lesson learned there I guess, or however much it turns out to be. Post script: The lesson turned out to be $200. The opener was merely repaired, and not replaced. It's probably just as well to do it this way for the sake of expedience, ...

    Hello, new roof. Goodbye, five thousand dollars. It was due, and hopefully getting it done now will circumvent any real damage from ever coming in. Here's hoping that the job is actually completed before something catastrophic does actually come.

    I managed to find some time to associate with another human being in the course of my free time on the day before. It was a refreshing experience. Since we were there last, the arcade has had yet anoter room open up. I was able to play Warzard ...

    On the second day off of work this week I took a moment to review some past entries here, both in recent weeks and years past. I seem to be complaining about my physical status rather frequently lately. The start of this week didn't help matters with my right shoulder getting a pinch towards the end of the day as I struggled with closing a container door. I guess I need to accept this as part of normal operation for the moment. Meanwhile, I decided to take both days off in light of the forecast, ...

    Hi, Raquel.

    Saturday morning's work day ended with a fun task. The trailer I brought into the rail yard had lettering which didn't match the identification it was given on the internal billing statement. In order for me to be allowed to park the trailer there, I had to take a marker to put the correct letters on there as well as find a way to conceal the original incorrect letters. Despite dropping the trailer and pulling around to have the noses as close to each other as possible, ...

    This week's non-work days was a manifesto in completely awful time management. My parents gave a pair of tickets for my wife and I to see a local theater production. Scheduled at 8PM. We went and it was enjoyable enough, despite the sometimes extremely loud volume of audio and brightness of some strobe flashes, not to mention the drunken family seated behind us who refused to stop saying the first thing that entered their addled minds at every putrid breath. To do something interesting while in ...
