End of DST 2010

So, Daylight Saving Time has come to an end this year. And, seems that there are still fewer clocks that I'm updating. Partly, because my new watch is atomic and does DST automatically now...and decided that clocks I don't use, don't need to be updated.

VX-7r clock continues to be a challenge every time I need to update it, but this time I figured it out without having to go online and track down its manual.

Tradition is to check the lamp timer on my HLN4365W1, and I had been in the service menu earlier this week...the image had inverted while I was switching between TiVos...not sure how that happened, but had to do a user reset to get the TV working again. Didn't look to closely at the upside down readout of the lamp timer. A quick peek now...its at 3701 hours.

So, I've added another 1337 hours since last end of DST. So, I probably have 1.5 to 2 years left. I had been thinking of replacing the TV ... though with other things that need replacing first, etc... I might plan on getting another bulb at some point. And, stop putting off the blu-ray player plans linked to getting a new display of 1080p...though a new display would have more HDMI inputs than my current display, which is kind of an issue.

Time to go take care of my smoke detectors....

Start of DST 2010

Posting about having done my taxes for another year, after finding that I had blogged about having done so last year....made me remember another thing I blog about doing.

Which reminded me that I had forgotten to do the last step of my bi-annual daylight saving ritual.

I had pretty much tackled move clocks forward an hour and checking a few things when I got up this morning...but I had intended to wait until later in the day to test smoke detectors. But, starting into my taxes after returning from the grocery store...it slipped my mind until I was searching my blog for whether I had previously posted about 2008 taxes.

So, I jumped up and went and took care of each smoke detector and made it scream a little &#59;D

Once again, the updating the clock on my vx-7r stumped me ... some day I'll have that process remembered. At least this time I didn't have to hunt down a manual to finally do it.

Oh that reminds me, I didn't update my watch....even though I did wear it today.... :lalala:

Daylight Saving has ended....

Seems to have snuck up early this year. Also seems to be fewer clocks to check, or I'm just assuming more things have updated correctly on their own and other devices I just don't care if they have the right time or not. :lalala:

But, before I started this post...I remembered two other missed clocks. Now how do I set the time on my VX-7R, wish they didn't make it so complicated....where's the manual gone to. And, where is my watch hiding? :hmm:

Now in the past it was tradition to check how many hours were on the lamp timer on my HLN4365W1....but....oh what the heck, I'm gonna check it.

Wonder where the remote has disappeared to..... U-(

Guess I'll try the remote for my SIR-T351....that works. 2364 hours....so 1321 hours since last end of DST, so about 2-3 years left? Wonder what I'll get as my new TV? Wish they didn't stop making 50" DLP RPTVs. LCD & Plasma have such wide bezels that I have to go down to a 46" to find one that'll fit my stand.

Oh well, that leaves the last thing to do today is replace the batteries in my smoke detectors and test them.

VX-7RB & MH-73A4B on order

I now have a VX-7RB and an MH-73A4B on order. This morning I decided to pull the trigger on getting that new handheld that I had been thinking of getting ever since I passed my Technician Exam and became licensed to operate in the US.

Except that I was being distracted by the VX-8R. And, even though it is now finally out and everything. I decided the main difference that it offers is APRS, and that I didn't really need it. Especially since there's a lot of extras that would need to go on top of it and it kind of takes away from why I wanted a new HT.

I had contemplating scaling back even further on models....debating whether I really needed all the bells and whistles of the VX-7R. But, eventually I settled that this was still the HT I wanted.

And, then when I found out what my state tax refund would be and then finally getting it (which turned out to be sooner than getting my federal). I knew that I was going to do it.

This morning was that time.

Now instead of subjecting some poor random forum to a long rambling thought, I will try to consolidate those things into this blog where they can be more easily ignored profess to be collected thoughts from my mind.
