Summer starts at Camp Cornell

No it is not that the pool is opened. That should happen in the next few weeks. The first official sign is that the entertainment center location moves up to the back porch.

We moved the TV, STB, dvd player and Hermes up to the porch last Saturday night so we could watch the Celtics/Cavaliers game. Woody was not impressed with the Celtic’s fade in the second half but he was happy to be watching it on the porch.

It took a little work and help from Matt but over Sunday and Monday morning, Hermes was upgraded to Lucid Lynx (Ubuntu 10.04), the alsa drivers to 1.0.23 and Voila! we finally have HDMI sound. So all is good.
Well almost. Late Sunday night we found out that the entertainment stuff is on the same circuit as the microwave and when Betsy tried heating up some supper for Kait, the breaker tripped. I hadn’t heard the microwave so I thought we lost half of the power coming in to the house. I was in the middle of a call to Hudson Power and Light when Betsy asked if it could be the breaker. I checked and sure enough. I had to call HP&L back and sheepishly say, “never mind!”.
Now we have to figure out how to get that on a different circuit while not violating anyone’s aversion to actual wires being visible.
