AC is fixed

I took the cover off and cleaned the filter off. I rinsed the filter off in the bathtub. Had to use a bucket because it’s to long to go under the faucet.

Look at that CPU temperature went down and the GPU only went down one degree though.

Maybe not completely fixed. Closed the window again, and it isn’t going down to 15C anymore. I was trying to get the cover on perfectly. Maybe it’s blocking something. Since it isn’t on correctly.

You can record on the NVIDIA SHIELD Android TV

You hold the home button down on the controller, then recording options popup and some other stuff. If I read the manual or searched on Google, I would of found the answer, I just assumed you couldn’t. Will it save the recordings to my computer? Probably not. So I’ll have fun trying to send the file to my computer.

I’ll need to delete it from the SHIELD too, only 16 GB of space, less because of Android.

Uploading to Picasa will increase your ping to over 900. Makes playing Titanfall impossible. Nice and the resolution is only 360p, instead of 1080p. No sound either.

Dishwasher works

Ran it earlier, checked it a while ago, no water in it. Instead of turning a knob, it has things you click. Easier then trying to turn it and land exactly on Normal. In six years I might need a new one again.

Funny the manager lady was trying to be friendly to me. I’m an asshole and said “yup”. No conversation.

How did she know I don’t have 500 bucks?

Sister didn’t ask me if I wanted to buy her gaming laptop. It only has a NVIDIA GT820M. Wait for the new AMD laptops, might have slower processors, but better video. Maybe some of them will have an Intel processor and a dedicated AMD video card. They will cost between $400-$700.

The screen resolution on the laptop my sister has is only 1366 x 768, no wonder it only has a GT820M.

It’s a MSI CX61. It was first available February 27, 2014 on Amazon. She bought it in January of this year.

I love my NVIDIA SHIELD

Best streaming device I ever purchased. Don’t care that it only does stereo audio, it’s plugged into my TV and then the optical out on TV is going to soundbar. I read on a review that the audio it’s using for 5.1 and 7.1 doesn’t work with optical. So an HDMI audio extractor wouldn’t fix it, it would be doing the same thing as the TV. You’d need HDMI on your soundbar or receiver.

I like my yamaha soundbar. I don’t know if yamaha has one with HDMI inputs. The Yamaha YSP-2500 Sound Bar with Bluetooth and Wireless Subwoofer has HDMI inputs, it’ll cost you a grand though.

Getting a new dishwasher

Guess they didn’t want to pay $170 to fix the one I have. I think she said it was 6 years old, so it’s probably better to replace it. The dishwasher is coming tomorrow. If they fixed it, it could break again. Eventually that’ll add up, and it’ll be more then if they just replaced it. I’m guessing the big boss lady Marge made the decision. They haven’t noticed my AC not working very well. I can still sleep at night, so I probably won’t tell them. It might just need to be cleaned, which I can do myself.

Sure enough they came again while walking dog

It was almost 11:30 am, so I thought they wouldn’t be coming until after 12 pm, the office is closed at 12 pm until 1 pm. Plenty of time to walk the dog. Sure enough they called while walking, didn’t answer it, they left a message, that doesn’t make a lot of sense if you read the transcript. Sounded like they wanted to fix something, so either the dishwasher or the leak. Or maybe both.

Update
I called them back. Said the maintenance guy is coming. So probably to fix the leak. Not sure when the dishwasher is getting fixed. Unless he has the part and is doing that too.

Update
The leak should be fixed. That means I can use the kitchen sink again. I guess they had to order a part for the dishwasher.

Leak under kitchen sink

I’m guessing the maintenance guy didn’t put the pipe back together tight enough. Don’t think there was a leak until after he did something. The dishwasher repairmen came today, they have to get a part, not sure when they are coming back. They noticed the leak, that’s how I know about it.

Personally I would fire the maintenance guy.

Linux still has my Borderlands 2 save file

Looks like I don’t have to start Borderlands 2 all over again. Can’t remember if I made any progress in Windows, if I did, I’ll get to do that over again.

Might need a new AC

Closed the window to see if the AC would work better. Didn’t get any cooler. CPU might be hotter though. Should probably open the window back up. GPU is idling at 50C. I’m guessing the fan isn’t at full speed on the GPU. Maybe when they come to fix my dishwasher they will notice my AC blows compared to the other ones and replace it. The AC repairman said something needed to be replaced on it. Or maybe he meant the whole thing.

The AC is at the lowest temperature. Tonka is probably hotter then me. Cool enough for me, so I probably won’t tell them my AC sucks.

I did have to turn the fan on in my room, easier to sleep that way.

I think it’s around 70F in my apartment, might of went up after closing window.
