That way lies madness

Don't think like that. Don't even contemplate it. It's just an application of Murphy's law. This it is and nothing more.

Well, this morning I finally got my equipment wired up and ready to run. I plugged it in, turned it on, looked at the light display. Darkness there, and nothing more.

Between the electrician and me, we tried a few things we could think of to try to get it working. There's no power coming from the set of wall sockets I need to use. Just as I thought I was about to actually start getting useful things done, I find yet another problem cropping up, serving to get in my way.

But I'm not going to develop a persecution complex. That way lies madness. Things just go wrong. Problems happen. Only this and nothing more.

And the equipment, never flitting, still is sitting, still is sitting
On the wall opposite the laboratory door;
And its wires have all the seeming of a demon's that is dreaming.
And the lablight o'er it streaming throws its shadow on the floor;
And my soul from out that shadow that lies floating on the floor
Shall be lifted---one day, when it works!

I won't be posting for a few days - I'm going to spend the weekend in Scotland, but stay tuned for more exciting adventures in a few days...

Please feel free to comment. I value dialogue and want other people's involvement. Please put your email address in. I will publish pretty much any comment which is made, but if you do not give your email address, I reserve the right not to publish your comment. I will not pass on or publish an email address (unless you specifically ask me to), but I may want to verify details, and cannot do this without an email address. Besides, its polite. Also, feel free to put in html tags. If you don't, I will stick them in, but I will just stick in simple ones. If you want anything more, you'll have to do it yourself.
