    Oh, come on now - give me SOME credit. Of COURSE I clean the lint trap. And the vent is clear outside. What caused the problem this time was - the conduit tore at the connection to the outside vent, and there was no way to see it because it was behind the dryer. The tear caused an interruption in the air flow, and all the stuff just gathered right... there. When I replace it, I'll get a longer piece of conduit - we used this one because it came with the dryer, and they always give you just enough, but once you nip the edges once or twice, it becomes too short.

    You know... I go between Russian and English on my computers all the time - because I translate. And it takes some doing to add a second language layout to your keyboard. So... how in the world does one do it accidentally?

    Mrs Xue us constantly going between English and Chinese......and I have no idea how folks do it accidentally..... but that was not the first time I have seen that...the worst was when someone...who should not have been touching the system...managed to change the language, on a mainframe that was controlling the fire alarm and sprinkler systems, to German. You see he had taken a computer class in night school and wanted to practice.....Much running in circles and panicking ensued from the maintenance office that controlled it. I just went into settings and changed it back....still have no idea how he did that by accident....also never got any explanation why there was no password on this rather important system...or as why they allowed anyone, who just happened to be in front of the keyboard, in this unsecured area, access to it.

    English and Chinese. That's harder than English and Russian. At least, with English and Russian, the writing is in the same direction. Granted, one is a Romance language, and the other is from the Indo-European group, but still....

    Every now and then I have to fix something with the language setup on her laptop, but not often.

    And I believe it is typing left to right in Word, just like we do

    If you look around, you should be able to find a right angle connection that will reduce the crimping and forcing to fit.

    So
    create a disk image on a flash drive
    test a new piece of software to see how it does
    select destination......:G:
    Ok that's what the flash drive was
    Select image file...well that's on E:
    Look at interface source E:
    Destination G:
    Hit start.........
    It reformats E: to FAT32 and wipes out all of my backups of ISO files, bit locker keys, and various other tools.....never touches the G:
    I had to reformat the drive to NTFS in order to save the ISO files on it and had to go through 100 flash drives...one at a time...for the Bitlocker keys

    The saga continues. Replaced the dryer exhaust hose and installed a new exhaust cover while I was at it. There is definitely some very respectable air flow in there now. The next $50 (or more) question is - did I or did I not burn out the heating element and the temperature sensor while working on all this? Stay tuned for the new adventure.

    Making pickled cucumbers and squash, onion jam, and harvesting mint and lemon balm as additional herbal tea ingredients. I hope all is well with everyone this rainy morning.

    Well Jacob took a nasty spill in the 4th quarter of the Junior High Basketball Game Thursday night. Thought he separated his shoulder but luckily it turns out its just a shoulder contusion. Missed the karate tournament this weekend but should be cleared to return to action Monday or Tuesday.

    Who would have ever thought basketball would be more dangerous than karate.....lol.

    I finally got rid of an engine that's been sat about for a couple of years, and a pair of axles.

    A bit more space, which is nice :D

    OW... it still sounds bad. Remind him not to try and bounce back too quickly.

    Today... I un-flooded our basement, shoveled cat **** (don't ask - but "shoveling" is an accurate term), ran four loads of laundry, cleaned the kitchen, cleaned the living room, closed up 12 jars of pickles (yellow squash and cucumbers with pepper, garlic, and dill), and three jars of onion jam. I am now tired. I hope nobody judges me if I watch "Merlin" with Sam Neill followed by "Murder on the Orient Express" with David Suchet (he is THE Hercule Poirot - don't argue.)

    Well... at his age you can get away with stuff like that... but those injuries DO leave long-lasting traces.
