I’ve been playing around with a couple of USB 3.0 hard drives (where have they been all my life.) The speed of copies is significantly faster. The translation (network to computer to drive) is also faster.  I am not sure why I haven’t upgraded until now.

I used to be a huge fan of fire wire and then SATA but USB 3.0 seems to be much faster and frankly a lot easier to manage than worrying about all the different cable types.

I finally got my entire lab set-up in the basement (have to do something about moving air down here).

We still have one working phone jack – not sure what we are going to be able to do about that. Cellular phones are nice and frankly the service in MD is much better than IN (you don’t have all the hill based dead spots).  But it is still nice to be able to pick up the landline – use the speaker phone or even fax in receipts to the folks doing our relocation.

According to the tech who came Friday we have older jacks in the house. Which is funny because the first tech that came said we had the newer boxes which is why they sent the second tech in the first place. Oh well.

I suspect the first order of property management is not actually managing the properties but selling them. Once they are sold and people move in you can take your time.

What can you do? We have an inspection by the city in a week, I suspect everything will get fixed by then. Until that happens, no phones, no dishwasher and one broken ceiling fan.

What’s next?

First night spent in the new house in Maryland. It was a pleasant night – the new bed is very comfortable. Fran is happy as she has her couch back. She isn’t as happy about the amount of times she is being let out. Two accidents in three days for her -  is really something that hasn’t happened in nearly 10 years. I suspect Fran is telling us something. Its either we aren’t doing a good job letting her out, or she isn’t happy about the move overall.

Comcast can’t install a cable modem this week due the fact that the house was never wired for cable. Who has a house anymore that isn’t wired for high speed Internet? I checked – no FIOS and really only low speed DSL (not even one of their best packages). How do you live in our modern world without high speed Internet? I guess its going to be lots of time at the local coffee shop. (still have to get approval from the owners to even do the cable install as they have to run a cable from the neighbors house to our house).

I guess I could always head off to the office – but then I wouldn’t have the joy of unpacking. I’ve gotten six boxes (including all my clothes) today. I am heading down to the basement when my blog is done to start unpacking there. I need to find the remote for the dish receiver in the great room. Otherwise we have to use the manual method and that is slow at best.

Somehow a fly has worked its way into the house and is bugging me. Time to go unpack the fly swatter
