Fairly Awesome Weekend

| | Comments (3)

Thursday night we saw an episode of Voyager that had David Graf in it, so on Friday we watched Police Academy.  As you do :)

Saturday morning I headed into work to do an upgrade, and accidentally upgraded to the latest version instead of the second latest version we were meant to put on.  Whoops.

At lunch the little brother came over, having just purchased a brand new second hand switch.  I brought home cables and we plugged in and had a look and made sure the switch was working, which it looked like it was.  Then we fussed around with our network to see if we could figure out why the NAS won't get a link light on our Cisco switch.  It wouldn't even get link on David's HP switch.  Super epic weird.  Guess will just have to keep using it on our 100Mbps Netgear switch.  After that he did awesome stuff like install a couple of smoke detectors that I'd bought last year but hadn't installed, and we totally reprogrammed our Harmony remote.  They finally have drivers for our TV now which is awesome, and also for the new DVD player we got which has a super dodgy remote that presses buttons multiple times which makes it unusable.  But even though everything works now, the amp still makes the Harmony remote have issues.  Still, we can live with that given that we can drive all our devices now.  Oh and he also pulled apart the fan that's been rattling.  Turns out the mounting for the gear box which turns the fan from side to side had disintegrated.  So he pulled it all out.

Have I ever mentioned how awesome my brother is? :)

In the evening I cooked sausages and very garlicky pasta (sorry!) and leftover veggie bake, and we watched our cruise slideshow and various other cruising slideshows and chatted mostly about cruising.  Quite a nice evening.

Today David went home and I did some house cleaning and cruise blogging and we went food shopping and I cooked a lamb roast with lots of epic veggies and all in all had quite a nice weekend.

Sunday night roasts are my super power
