Bought the "upgrade" to Quicken 2014. Wish I hadn't.
My heater is still broken. Looks like I need a whole new air conditioning / heating unit. That will likely be $3,800+
Figured out I cannot afford a new car this year. Dang. My Scooby-do is 18 years old, and still going strong - but I think I want newer technology. Like wireless door locks. Next year, then. I really like the C-Max Energi, which has fuel costs around 25% of gasoline fueled cars. Last week, at CES in Las Vegas, Ford showed off a version of the C-Max Energi with a 30 watt solar panel on the roof. Free fuel, if I were to drive it to work and leave it parked out in the sun. I like this idea. I park out in the sun anyway, to keep trees from dropping gunk all over my car. And if it drops my fuel costs from 25% of gasoline to 20% of gasoline, that is a win.
Work is slow. We are still waiting on Sacramento to pass the budget. Until then, there isn't a lot of work left to do.
And... that's about it. At work, friends of mine are playing Path Of Exile on Steam. It is free to play, and is (apparently) very reminiscent of Diablo. Or what Diablo III should have been.
