High-res Every few days for the past 3 years, when water in the freezer drain tube would turn to ice, the water would back-up and then drip down into the fridge.
11:30pm on a Friday night seems like a perfectly logical time to tear apart the freezer and find a DIY solution to the problem.
Everything is back together now and I suppose I’ll find out in the coming days if I was successful.

The new speaker stands inspired a long overdue reorganization of my workspace.
I finally got all my external drives (*cough* 7) connected and organized.
The speakers are approximately 1 million times better than what I was previously using.
I can see my desk for the first time in months.
Cable management leaves a tad to be desired, but this is good enough and allows for flexibility without having to unwrap all cables just to move/change one device.
I can listen to vinyl at my desk!
Now I just need to buy some real curtains.

Some people spend Friday nights getting hammered with friends and family.
I usually spend Friday nights alone on the couch trying to set a new personal record for finishing a pint of Wegmans Green Apple Sorbet.
But this Friday night I decided I needed speaker stands for my old school 1980’s Magnavox home stereo speakers. So I drove to Lowes, spent $40 on wood and cutting, came home and screwed it all together. Now I have speaker stands.
Ikea ain’t got nothin’ on me.
