This week has been my own personal episode of 'Dirty Jobs'. I had to clean the drain line in the sink where the AC condensate drains. The AC kept cutting off because the drain line backed up. Sink drain? Three words: Dis. Gus. Ting.

All good now, but the gross factor was high with this one.

Yes, that lovely, black slime with the pleasant aroma that lingers in one's sinuses for the rest of the day - especially when it's a kitchen sink.

Thanks Scott.  I will pm Kurster.

Plumbing on vacation. -hehe- On the bright side, at least you know how to do basic plumbing.  A big chunk of the planet has no clue.  

It is like swimming.  A big chunk of the planet cannot swim.  Educated folks from rich countries can swim.

All she wants is another 27" flat LED monitor to replace the second 24" monitor so she will work with two 27" flat LED monitors.

Am doing my best to convince her that she will have more de facto real estate to arrange documents and data banks.  Not working so far.  I even told her that none of the components are made in Republican states.....
