08:36 pm - Easy come, easy go
A client paid me on Friday, which was nice. Not a huge amount, maybe 10% of my current accounts receivable, but it still justified a little shopping trip. I now have:
- A Lenovo S10e Ideapad computer. This is a little 10" netbook which I can use to avoid having to carry around my 17" mobile workstation. People, brand-name computers are now under $500. When did this happen? Why was I not told?
- A 12" x 9" x 3" precision ground block of granite. This is flat to 3 micro-meters, and is the standard by which I shall judge the flatness of other things. No, you may not use if for baking.
- A boring head for my milling machine (exciting!).
Today I lost my glasses while out walking (I was wearing my sunglasses, and lost the regular glasses). One re-trace on bike and a second on foot failed to find them, and so they're gone. Tomorrow I shall have to have more made. Add that on to last Wednesday's dentist visit, and the discretionary spending is complete :(.
