Let the unpacking commence

Sweet zombie jesus, its been 20 days since I posted last!

Well its been kinda stressful around here lately. We moved into a new place and then two weeks after being here our land lords told us they were selling the house. We have since found out that the house has sold and the new landlords want to keep the current tenants at the current rent. We'll see about that last one. I don't know if our rents will cover the mortgage on $185,000+.

I can now start getting back into some hobbies. I've been suffering lantern withdrawal since I didn't want to haul anything over here if I wasn't sure we'd be staying. Now I have a garage and a workbench I should be able to catch up on some projects. I was able to put together a rocket in the last few days. My uncle got my a rocket kit for my b'day last year, it is a cluster rocket. It uses two engines instead of one so I'm really interested to see it fly.

It is the white one in the center. If you look closely you can see two engine retaining clips.

Shipping on eBay is really starting to piss me off. I got a couple 500mhz P3 processors for free and I was thinking I'd find a cheap dual proc motherboard and make a dual system. I've found lots on eBay for $20 and under but they want $20-40 USD for shipping. How can it possibly cost $40 to send a motherboard from California to Canada?! It's ridiculous. I've had lanterns shipped for less than that. Needless to say my dual processor system is on hold for now.

I've been promising to put some pictures of the new place online but it won't be today. It is raining out and I don't want to go out there in the rain and take some pictures. I guess the teeming masses will have to wait a few days longer.

Have fun and stay dry.
