I am proud to report that after 2 1/2 years of living with a stove with only 3 working burners, I managed to fix the spark/lighter on the 4th burner so that they all work now.

Now, I can move on to fixing this very recent problem.

Actually, it seems I may still a have some work to do on the stove. It still sparks, but only when I’m not trying to light that burner. But it did work for a good couple of hours, most of which I spent watching Black Swan to prepare for the Oscars. On the plus side, we’re considering using the 3D printer at work to make a replacement piece of plastic for the dryer.

Damn Vulcan Ears

The picture says it all:

Yesterday, this hot picture showed up in my news feed, and I “liked it”. Today, and probably forever more, I now get to enjoy this clearly pandering ad. I know it’s your business model, and I would never have met her without Facebook, but it does suck more than a little.

Lost Valentines

There are a whole host of Lost and 24 valentines over at The 24 ones don’t do anything for me, but the Lost ones are great (mostly), especially the one copied above. Oh Lost.

In other TV news I’m using the 2 seasons of Better Off Ted to fill in while I decide what long term commitment to make.
