It was sunny here but also not especially spectacular.

Squish squish. Tonight at 3:30am I got woken by a loud bang and by the time I raised my head off the pillow there were people in my bedroom shining flash lights at me. They wore fire brigade outfits and told me that my flat was flooded. Who needs sleep when you can spend the night soaking water from your carpet with your towels.

The problem was caused by a plastic fitting that should not have been used on a hot water pipe - it turned brittle from the heat and eventually burst. The flat below was worse, with water coming out of the ceiling lamps and wall sockets and had to be temporarily condemned. It even leaked into the garages two floors below.

After many hours of mopping, my flat is merely damp as a swamp instead of completely soaked and a dehumidifier is struggling to keep up. Oh, and I have running water and heating again, which are things you don't appreciate until they go away.

A Sta-Lok fitting for stainless steel wire rope, cut through the swaged part and polished to illustrate how the hydraulic roller swaging press deforms the fitting around the wire to hold it securely in place.

No Google! Bad Google!
A new message above Google's search results is the most visible attempt yet at getting Firefox users to switch back to Google.

Friday fun time. I then spent the rest of the day under deck reconnecting an astonishing amount of wires (with fiddly BNC plugs). Still enjoyed it greatly :)

Todays all-day outage of Apple's authentication servers highlights what a terrible trap all this App Store bullshit is. I just needed to reinstall a small piece of software (because it had gotten destroyed in a previous App Store orchestrated update). I couldn't do this and so couldn't use the software all day long, because even though the software is freely available, it is only available through the App Store, which was forever spinning at the login.

In the good old days of software, I could've just gone on the vendors website and downloaded it, and if that were down I could've found a mirror of it. But now many vendors no longer even offer this alternative. I miss the good old days.
