I am very sad the screen cracked on my laptop. Just the upper left corner. I thought that was the end of my laptop but by Googling, I discovered it's kind of an easy fix. I watched a video on how to replace the screen yourself but I don't think I'm going to try it. At least I know it can be fixed and I don't need to get a whole new laptop. I hate getting new computers because then I have to find my way around a whole new machine and I don't like doing that.

Gotta finish putting a floor in a boat , Put a steering kit in a another one with a rotten helm and wire up / install a fan relay on a grizzly .
Did I mention it all has to be done today ? My shoulder feel no better than it yesterday , last night sucked even with meds and the tens unit on wide open .

My son like the tens unit , I can put a electrode on him then the other on me and everytime we touch or play we shock each other . Cats dont like them on their feet though lmao

i'ts not going to feel any better until you quit using it and let the muscles and nerves relax. everytime you use that arm and shoulder, you're just aggravating them more and causing more pain. take your meds, get a heating pad on your shoulder and quit using it for a few days is what it will take.

Oh, I looked at it, then went searching for the formula to figure out volt drops, looked at it again to see the source vintage and saw the open in the circuit. So it was a good five minutes

Actually it changes the voltage across the resistor. The answer I circled was actually correct because there is an open in the circuit, there is no voltage in the circuit because it isn't grounded

Yeah, as soon as I saw that I felt pretty stupid. In my defense I'd been up since about 5:30 am went to school from 7 to 4 then worked from 4-11 got home and started working on my homework, my brain wasn't really functioning....

trying to remember the Damn equation for volt drops, anyone wanna guess how long it took me to figure out I didn't need the equation?
What's bad is that I looked at this and thought "underpants gnome problem". I am an accountant with nooooooo knowledge of electrical wiring.
