Small Problems Pile Up

  1. I think that all my bank and brokerage accounts are set for online access of statements and tax forms. This means that I need to find all the account numbers, login names, and passwords that I only use once a year for retrieving tax forms.

  2. Oof, taxes. I'd be willing to pay extra to not have to keep records and not have to fill out forms. I'd totally favor discarding the income tax in favor of a national sales tax.

  3. My laptop battery made its way down to 84% charged while plugged in. Still don't know if it's a problem with the battery, with the charger, with the firmware in the SMC, or with some other bit of code. Or maybe this is some sort of "feature" that I don't know about? In any event, I'm recalibrating the battery right now and will see if that helps.

  4. Recalibrating the battery means that I will be without the laptop for many, many hours. Once the battery dies, I'm going to have to leave the computer off for five hours (deeper than sleep -- it's a coma!) + the time for a full recharge.

  5. My knees hurt (both of them). I'm hoping that it's some sort of simple injury from wearing ridiculous tall shoes and that they will heal without too much difficulty now that the Dansko clogs have taken up the primary position in my shoe rotation. My mind turns over the options that would lead to both knees hurting versus just one.

  6. Ran out of milk. No tea for me this morning.

  7. Currently stumped by a trivial algebra problem that popped up while designing a knitting pattern.

  8. The library is never open when I need it to be.

  9. Still don't have a google account. Fear that blogger will force the issue before I get that sorted out.
