other crazy little things we’ve noticed

  • One of the vertical blinds at the sliding door at the back is broken right off the track. It’s at the end so it’s not very noticeable.
  • The lock on the window in the living room is broken (half of it is missing)
  • There are huge holes in the drywall everywhere. Patchy, patchy! One of the holes in the bathroom has been stuffed with a tiny little piece of toilet paper.
  • Rust stains from some metal-legged piece of furniture are on the carpet in the upstairs hallway. Nothing gets rust out of carpet.
  • There’s a lightswitch downstairs that seemed to do nothing at all… I’d flip it on and off and no lights would turn on or off. Well, last night we solved the mystery: this switch controls the fan in the upstairs bathroom. No idea why you’d need to turn that on or off from another floor…

  1. YOu forgot to mention the mystery switch in the living room and the fact that it turns on the uipstairs bathroom fan. LOL

  2. i am in northeastern pennsylvania
    I am here because the obsolete computer helpline is down!
    backed over the address and found a link to a nec ultralite.
    I guess my wife’s nec ultralite 386-25 isn’t a real one! as it has a hard drive and not enough memory!
    we just fired it up ( and it would not “fire” )
    think the old and used hard drive is stuck or gone.
    i am charging a collection of sub-c cells, whan i find 10 that are still good, i will build a power pack for it.
    it originally had a 40 meg and i put in a 700 meg using ( horrors) disk manager.

  3. OMG! We have the exact same switch!!
    It took us two months to figure out what it did. It was only when we had a guest over that flipped the switch while I was in the upstairs bathroom that we finally figured it out. Until then we’d thought it was a switch that went no where…
