Out of the Blue

I was checking to make sure TiVO was set to catch the Deadwood season finale tonight (it still hasn't sunk in The Sopranos is over for the season), and with a quick pop, the audio went. Some checking seems to isolate the problem to my receiver, so I need to check and see if hopefully this may just be a blown fuse. I have fears that it goes beyond that, as there was a distinctive smell following this that seems very familiar as fried circuitry, so it may be a goner.

tAE:
I have far more than enough work keeping me busy all day and at all hours of the night to not have to "scare-up" new sources of revenue. A large part of my job is convincing patients they don't have a disease that requires expensive treatment. The internet has turned a large part of the public into the equivalent of first year medical students-- too much knowledge without the experience or ability to put it into the proper context. The fact is, a large proportion of the patients I see most often have a psychological basis for their physical complaints. I can barely rule out one physical problem when, without a pause, they immediately shift gears from the now forgotten life threatening illness they had a short time ago to a new equally serious ailment. Their lives are ruled by anxiety about each little physical ailment.

No conjuring necessary on my part. And if you don't think these people are suffering from pathological levels of anxiety, stop by my office sometime.
