This being Cyberweek...I tried to cram some stuff in other than just recovery from Chicago Tardis into this week.
Though I haven't actually gotten to all the things yet...I felt that I should start this post before I forget all the things I wanted to cover. Too late
Anyways...one of the important items was new CO detector. I used to have a First Alert CO400?, battery operated CO detector that took a couple AA batteries and didn't do much else. I was looking to buy something like it again, except reading the negative reviews on amazon.com... a number of other people were complaining that unit disintegrates when you try to change the batteries. Which is why I was needing to replace my old one. So, I decided that maybe I would look at a different brand this time around.
Also noted that these things have like a 5 year life expectancy...though my First Alert CO detector was only a year old. I noticed that Kidde CO detectors claim a 7 year life span (though only a 5 year warranty). Though (in part due to Amazon 'recommendations') I got the Kidde KN-COPP-B-LPM, which has a digital display....showing current CO levels and historical levels, etc. Which I debated on whether I would want to know if there was a CO level, that wasn't alarming.
Don't know if I paid attention to the fact that it uses 3 AA batteries....one odd thing I've noticed, is that it doesn't say if I should replace batteries regularly....but I suspect it'll be part of the same routine with replacing smoke detector batteries.
Though I don't think I'll replace the CO batteries along with the smoke detector ones on December 25th (because of long DST, I had changed my bi-annual to be on or around June 25th and December 25th.) Though, I've already replaced the battery early in one of the smoke detectors. Odd, because there hadn't been any nuisance trips in some time...and it isn't one that is typically set off by these situations. (usually ones that nuisance trip is the detector in the living room [near the kitchen or the first bedroom from the kitchen. Yeah...something I'm burning on the stove or in the microwave is usually the cause.)
But, getting a new set of 4 9V batteries was something I got in my recent cyberweek purchasing...
Oh yeah….with CO detector setup….the display is reading ‘0′. Guess its all good then….
Meanwhile, one of the other Cyberweek activities was I bought a new domain…. and .com one. (previously mentioned a kindle fire motivation to wanting a .com domain name.) Though I don’t know if I’ll ever develop a website for it….or what to do with the web part. Leave it pointed at the 403 error page, for not having a doc root yet….
Going to be super tedious though to migrate all my @chen-online.net addresses to it.
Starting to wish I hadn’t named the ‘new’ computer ‘lhaven’. Because….its nothing like the old ‘lhaven’, and now I can’t use that name should I ever get around to what I had intended to do to replace that machine. Or do the kinds of things I used to do on ‘lhaven’ besides run BOINC.
I had started the tedious process of customizing the Windows XP environment to make it useable…but I stopped, Because, the only reason it exists is to be a full-time BOINC machine. So, it likely won’t be useful for anything else. Though I might want to move Wallwatcher from ‘tardis’ over to it…sometime between now and when ‘tardis’ regenerates. Forget what else I have that’s still running on the old ‘tardis’ that couldn’t make it to Windows 7.
