My life seems to have no control anymore...

Work is busy busy busy and yet when I get home more Time Capsules arrive.
I am really beginning to wonder why Apple let the obvious flaw persist? One would think they have noticed by now that this is perhaps not the most reliable of products? When it works well it is as slick a piece of elegant design to ever fall from the drawing board of Jon Ive. When it fails however, it is a stinker...

Who in hell signed it off to production? (Oh oh, I feel a rant coming on...) Calm down... there are so many TCs out there that have NOT failed yet. I will be fixing and modifying for years to come.
What would happen if I actually worked out how to get my name in the Google headlights of a search for ‘Time Capsule Failure’? I wonder if it’s worth all the hassle.

There are many things to do... for a start have an early-ish night, that would help.
My parents are round tomorrow, as it will be Mum’s birthday at the weekend - 86 I think? Tidy their bedroom, which is like a building site, having had some building work done in it - well triple glazing of a marvellous but destructive kind. The windows and frames look great, but the cavernous holes and cracked walls left when they were fitted and the complete lack of window sills make for a messy house.
I needs a new garage in a piece of this vast garden wilderness, where I can recreate my office and have an ‘attic’ to store away long term stuff, like suitcases and boxes of ‘bits’. This bungalow has almost no attic worthy of the name and nothing that could be useful, unless you are 24” tall and like walking on slopes.

The kit arrived yesterday. i plugged it into the PC (work laptop) USB port and watched as random lights flashed. They are supposed to be in a sequence, which I can reverse with a small button and speed up and slow down the flashing ‘sequence’ with a small pot. Neither button nor pot did a thing and after 2 hours of fruitless tinkering, I packed it all away again, to be messed about with later. This is the first step towards a silent modification to a TC fan. A disappointing start.

What a dull blog. I must get some zing and spice into it. But that will be later... off to Zanzibar zzzzzzzzzzzzz
