So how come it's not raining puppy dogs yet?

This is the bit where I sit in the corner and face the wall for a while, as I take ownership of my amazing moronity.

Last night there was Geek Rescue for my sound problems. Only there wasn't that much geekery. Mostly it was "Hey you plugged this bit in here when it should go in there", and "That switch actually turns the sub off" (i thought it turned it on) - but the best bit by far was when I realised that I had set my pooter to 'mute' and that's why it wasnt' putting out any sound.

Doh.

However, we (uh.. ferrouswheel) managed to get my sound card outputting on all three plugs, so all of the speakers are running and I'm in my Happy Music Place. We played a variety of cheesy music to celebrate! Yes, there was some Abba.

It seems my office is moving back into town on or around the 8th of May. I am very much looking forward to this - I noticed yesterday that on my walk from where the meeting was to the train station, I was able to stop and do a couple of errands that are just too much of a pain to do while based in the Hutt, what with having to make a special trip to the shops and whatnot. It'll be good to be able to pop out and do things again.

We had a fire last night. The house warmed up in less than an hour, and was still warm this morning. I will be warm this winter! *SQUEE*
