My new computer's screen is doing funky things and they said I have to send it in to have it serviced.

On a bright note the old one is like 99% working with the latest windows and a diver install. The keyboard 100% works, and it plays videos okay but I've not tried editing one yet, bit slow compared to the new one, only obvious thing it's not 100% is it's stuck on bright, better than stuck on dim though. It will work okay till my new one gets back. I'll miss that bright keyboard the new one has, this is technically lighted but it's not bright at all.

Oh also they are making me pay to send it in, grr, but still cheaper than paying someone to fix it since it's under warranty. I'm assuming the issue is a loose connection or a board that needs replaced, and not fox pee, since it's flickered a bit since the beginning but not worth the hassle to send in till now. *fingers crossed no warranty voiding fox pee is found inside*, It acts like a loose connection and acts up when I move it.

Long rant, bet you thought I was done with my computer woes.

Dang they wanted an extra $15 to pick up for UPS because of the value declared but the closest drop off is cottage grove so would cost more in gas *sigh*

I know I'm complaining about the convenience of picking up a package from me, but geez that's a bit pricey considering he'll be in the area anyway.

So like $45+ to get it shipped and hopefully fixed, better not be fox pee.

Found the prettiest/cutest shark and ray tee on instagram. Was about to buy it, and then the page refreshed. Now I can't find the ad, and there's no way to look at ad history on instagram. :/ Really bummed out. I really wanted that shirt.

So I hadn't checked on the wasp nest by the front door till now. Easy to forget somehow. It's just the upper cone left not the nice round nest now. I think maybe they did it themselves though, maybe due to the heat, or maybe they are almost done with it. It would have been interesting if there had been a nice big nest to harvest in the fall once they went off to hibernate.

Not really annoying but kind of sad.

My computer fan is buzzing. It's still under warranty but I'm reluctant to send it in and spend another $40 or so to ship it to them. They should reimburse shipping once they have it and see it is a defect and covered, grumble. I took the back off but don't see anything I can do. Maybe get a can of air and see if blowing it out helps but sounds like it's unbalanced or bumping something.

Also it's hella smokey today 🙁

I think I accidentally tricked the taco lady into giving me extra tacos. Didn't have my glasses on and couldn't see it that clearly. I didn't think there could be 4 in that small contain so asked if the order was right. 2 girls in the truck and other piped up, "no you get two more, the order came up weird" Okay. Well there were 4 in the first container, after all, they were just super skimpy so fit the container easy. Bonus tacos, I guess it makes up for the several times recently when I actually didn't get what I ordered, but this is a new place. Well knowing their that small I guess I'd order 6-8 next time, decent price but kinda skimpy.

I'll save the old fan till the warranty is over so if something catastrophic happens I can put it back and still be covered but it's nearly over.

I jinxed myself. It's dying. I think it may be the hard drive. It wont save files. Doesn't want to open things. Took more than 15 minutes to boot up 🙁 So getting sent off again. Maybe they will lemon it and give me a new one, that would be cool but probably not, it seriously sucks but sending it off is cheaper than a new computer, but, ugh. Trying to save my last video by uploading it in chrome, somehow it opened. I haven't even been able to play it back, so fingers crossed it's okay. Edit: looks like it might not upload, stuck at 47% Drat. Still have the raw footage but can't edit it on this backup computer.

Next time I'm buying a desk top, from Best Buy. So I can drop it off if it has issues under warranty and a guarantee lemon exchange if it has to go in 3 times for issues. I am obviously electronically jinxed.

I think Aurora is going to run out of ants before her sample gets here. The guy I had been ordering through, well things got weird, so I had to scramble to find a new company on Alibaba. I bought a 1kg sample and if they are good will be cheaper through them anyway. But the extra delay means Aurora is running really short. I cut back but it's not going to last, poor girl.

My dubia colony died out for some reason, so I've run out of dubias. I switched to superworms until I get more.

Well, Nogo the sailfin dragon, however, does NOT like superworms so has been refusing bugs for a while. I thought she was eating them, but then I went to refill her bowl one day and there they all were, still sitting there. I got her a couple of dubias to see if the problem was her pickiness or her not eating and feeling sick, but she gobbled them up immediately. So I've got a picky lizard.

Glad you can get roaches locally for your picky eater.

My roaches aren't doing so well either. I still have plenty of adults but they aren't producing well. I may need to order Iki some mediums to feed off while I try and fix it. In my case I think it may be those beetles as I've seen them attacking ones who were shedding or giving birth so I think I'll move them to a tub and slowly move the roaches back into a clean tank to hopefully rid it of them and keep them out with the screen over it. If that doesn't work I may have to start a new colony and feed off the old one while grows.

Aurora didn't like the black ants. They are the gross kind. I'm working on getting a sample or red ants but she'll have to suffer with these for awhile.

Ikigai peed on my monitor, it might be broken. He didn't used to pee on it when I had it here before.

THANK YOU, Fedex for just dropping my order of FROZEN rodents off in the DRIVEWAY in 87 degree weather without ringing the doorbell. It's not like they're going to melt or anything. Fortunately they hadn't thawed yet, but I'm still pretty ticked about it.

Apparently the tip should be 20 percent of the bill, not 10 percent in the US...

Beaker took me for a short walk and ran into an elderly neighbor asking about his lost dog. Asked what it looked like and he showed me his watch that had a wolf on it. But I don't believe he has a wolf dog. Last time I saw him he had a chihuahua but that was before he went into a nursing home for awhile(was planned to be final but he came back, maybe money issues) so I'm not sure if he even still has her. He did used to own a camp ground when younger so who knows maybe he used to have a wolfdog. So think he may have dementia but once he was done talking to me he was heading back home so I went a head and finished my walk as my concern was that he make it back home.

Not so much frustrating as sad.
