So this weekend one of our cats discovered that my new laptop PC was a nice source of warmth. Being a rather large cat, she managed to crack the LCD screen when she curled up on the case.
Don't let this happen to you.
I talked to Gateway, and they wanted SIX HUNDRED BUCKS (plus tax!) to fix the thing; I only paid $700 for the whole machine a couple of weeks ago. So I opened it up and got the part number and found a replacement on eBay for ⅓ the price, and I'll be able to install it myself in about ten minutes.
The point of this rant is that I keep my brewery schedule in an Excel spreadsheet, and that file was the one file that I neglected to copy back to my old machine before opening the display housing on the new one. That means I have no idea what I'm supposed to be doing this week. So this morning I cleaned the draft lines, because I always do that on Mondays, and I cleaned a bright beer tank because I know I'll be moving a finished batch of Hefeweizen into the cellar this week. And I came up with a recipe for tomorrow's Maibock brew.
And then I went home, because one of the cats is sick — not the Vandal Cat — and needs to see the vet.
