Still on call.
The sprinkler we replaced yesterday is still leaking, but not enough to be the problem. I poked at a bunch of things without making any progress.
We've had a change at work where a certain customer has been promised 60 minutes time to fix, and this was the first weekend of that. So obviously I'm on call. I barely left the house in case they called, but I did get to the EAA hangar for the October meeting. I took my laptop with me in case :o(
We've figured out that there's a water leak at the house, and one of my thoughts was that it could be one sprinkler that's lower than the others. I replaced it, and that leaked, so we went and bought the parts to reinstall it again, and left the glue to dry overnight.
I'm bothered about the leak, as it seems to be a stupid amount, in which case where's the water?
I went to the airport and took off as Randy arrived from Cameron Park, and we flew to Watts-Woodland for their display day.
When everybody started to leave, we headed home - me to Lincoln, Randy back to Cameron Park.
After a nap I got some paint onto the frame I've been working on. Until I ran out of paint and daylight. It's supposed to rain tomorrow, so I probably won't get much more done on that for a while :o(
Well, because I'd started working (again) on my nicer map display, the old one stopped working. I spent a little while investigating to find it was getting an error trying to download the map data. It seems that the weather centre at the FAA had moved to a new way of distributing the data, so I tried hacking in the new location to the map software only to find that the format has changed too. The people who wrote the software seemed to have figured this out around the same time I did, so they're looking into it.
Vic had taken the van to work, and the table saw lives behind the van meaning I could get it out and play with some wood to try and make a frame for my new weather map. I've finished everything I needed the saw for, but there are a few things I'd still like to try before building the frame.
I got up stupidly early and headed to the airport for the October Young Eagles rally. I managed to fly 4 kids...
an eclipse during the morning, but there was too much cloud cover to see it. The light got weird though.
Tilly was a lot more settled this morning, meaning I didn't have to resort to Plan B (driving to breakfast and being her emotional support animal.) I flew up to Auburn to meet Chris and Randy, via Camp Far West Lake, in a modicum of smoke from the fire down South.
I'm off this week, and so far I've been just resting and doing little things around the house. Today, however, I decided to go flying.
