Out of the Blue

We went on our hunt for an air conditioner yesterday... It's embarrassing to be part of the unthinking herd reacting too late to a situation. This is exactly the feeling I got as we picked over the meager leftovers that were left by some savage mob of more timely shoppers inspired by the recent heat wave. The big disappointment was our first stop, which was to Sears, a place that had provided us with some very smooth shopping experiences in the past. We waited over 20 minutes in the merchandise pick-up area before we were informed that the unit we had been sold was not actually in stock... but even worse, when they learned this, they went off to tell our salesperson, rather than us, about the problem. This was one of several uncharacteristic glitches there, leading to suspicions that their recent change in ownership is starting to bear rotten fruit. I can only hope I am wrong about that, seeing how much we used to like that place.

On the bright side, I've discovered that the recent rearrangement of the layout in my office places the old air conditioner (which only turns out to be, as Miracle Max would out it, mostly dead) pointed right at the back of my head. It's been some time since this small older unit has had the horsepower too cool this office, but it is pretty effective when blowing directly on my neck, so at least I have a fall-back plan for enduring the heat wave besides just melting.

R.I.P.: Leslie Smith, 87, a creator of popular Matchbox miniature automobiles (thanks LoonyBomber) and Actress Anne Bancroft dies.

well since you have already decided but the onboard sound usually is fine, but I believe there are some possible issues so your milege may vary. But with the 155 its moot. Im not sure about that specific headset but the people I know that use the plantronics dsp rave about it acting as its own card. I have the 150 and its got excellent sound, is comfy and has a great mic. I heard that vent used more client resources, but Ive never really used it since my guild uses TS. We have it running on a high end server with a very fat pipe so it might work better for us.
