Quite Day At The Shop

Full day in the shop today. A full quiet day. Less than Turkey day which was only four open hours, and less than the Tuesday before Thanksgiving.

Oh well, got power run for a small space heater near the cash wrap and am down to like nine wine cards left to input. I see Tuesday as making these happen, and maybe I’ll even get a drawer installed under the counter to help clear off the mess.

And what is my most referred to document today?

Yes, that would be the list of alternate characters for Windows. Can you say lots of French wines to make wine cards.

The plan for the drawers is to make them from wooden wine boxes on drawer pulls. How cook will that be. Hopefully there will be time tomorrow for that project. No time left today after tinkering with trying to get both the Skype and the MagicJack lines running on the KSU unit. Right now it’s Skype in the office and MajicJack in the living room but I want both on both as they say.

And there is a new version of the MajicJack out — the MajicJack Plus which doesn’t even require a computer — works much like the Skype box under the desk. Plug it into the wall, plug Ethernet into it, do a little configuration work, and poof, a faux land line.

More silly projects to keep me amused.

Sort of an odd dinner tonight, chicken thighs baked in a saffron créme masala sauce with a side of angel hair pear gorgonzola slaw.
