And so to bed

Dropped off the overdue books at the library, hit the grocery store, arrived home and realized I'd forgotten TP and a new light bulb for the lamp in the living room. Meh. I can stop at Wal-Mart tomorrow after the pre-post-mortem hotel meeting; it's not like I need either of those things RIGHT NOW.

Spent the rest of the evening chilling on EVE after deciding the screws on the external hard drive case really are Phillips heads; unfortunately I don't rightly know where any of the 2.5 zillion multi-head screwdrivers I've bought over the last 23 years are at the moment. So that too will wait for another day. Dinner was sandwiches; I'll do horrible things to the pork Wednesday night, I guess. It'll almost certainly involve BBQ sauce, since I'm not usually in the mood to do complicated acts of culinary mayhem after I get home from work, especially if I've run errands between the P&R and my front door.

I don't have anything profound or even interesting to say about the shootings at VPI. I do agree
with joelrosenberg: it sure is ironic, given what went went down in the General Assembly. While I'm a pretty fervent proponent of RKBA, this really isn't the time for that argument.

Assuming the two external screws on the back of your DS3 case are the same as mine, they are combo screws. They work (one of the two directions) with a straight-edge, and both ways with a Phillips.

The four internal drive-lockdown screws are mini-Phillips. (Don't try using a full-size Phillips, it WILL strip the slot.) Lots of things can be used instead of the right tool, but one of those $5 seven-mini-screwdriver kits in the Palm-sized plastic box is the best.

Good luck. Let me know if you need to borrow a few screwdrivers....

Considering that I may be getting another one of these, I might as well get one of those $5 mini-screwdriver sets.
