It's a Breeze

Well, not exactly, but the last ceiling fan is now hung. I had to check the wiring with my voltmeter to make sure that I was wiring in the right direction, since the wires in the box were white and yellow. And the light fixture that was up there was wired backwards, but it didn't much care. The fan might have. It turns out that yellow is the new black. Or something like that.

But the fan works, many things that were in that room have been put or thrown away, and there is now some hope of moving furniture in and around that space. Well, once we have time and friends available to do the deed anyway...

When I was taking Electricity (basic home wiring) in high school (pre-requisite for Electronics), red was the second black.

But you don't want to KNOW the things I've run into since then... Using the volt meter was a wise move.

Interesting wildlife you got in that river of yours.

I saw. Thankfully, they can't apparently survive or breed up here.

Allo! The email address I have for you bounced, so I'm going to use this space to shamelessly direct your attention to this post:


I'm looking for someone with an 8mm digital camcorder to record an acrobatic troupe's performance at Bristol Ren Faire. Can you help, or do you know anyone who might be able to?

Despite Cam's description of it being "near" Chicago, it turns out that Kenosha, WI is about an hour and a half away. *If* you happen to know anyone who is going, however, any contact would be appreciated.

Sadly, I don't have the right gear, nor am I likely to make it up to Bristol. My e-mail address, BTW, is My Last Name at Filker dot Com.
