11:01 pm - The Proverbial electronic Whack-A-Mole
Yes you guessed it, friends. Okay, bought another monitor from Goodwill, and hooked it up to the i7 since I have much less trepidation over this box than the A10. I'm not getting another monitor till I replace the video card in that thing. Good news is a new replacement for me is only about $40 plus shipping. I can handle this. I'll probably get it from Tiger Direct. Then another Goodwill monitor.

However while on my way to La La Land over this, I went out to the truck late this afternoon...to find the APU had died. It won't even start. It just throws the ol' enG error up on this display without even trying. It could just be a blown fuse, or any number of things. So in the panic of the moment I braved a downpour in just my jacket to quickly disconnect the batteries before they all went dead. Something is definitely draining them, and I have no idea what at this point.

So this means a visit to both Hofrichter's and Thermo King. I could look things over tomorrow, but even if it is nothing more than a fuse the APU still needs a servicing simply because we've been running it so much.

Actually I probably won't be looking it over, for there's much financial discussion, as well as putting away the Christmas ornaments. Argh.
