On Friday it was just as horribly hot as Thursday. I have no energy in weather like this, and I lost an enormous amount of my day when Daniel installed our new, (supposedly) improved router, which works fine with my laptop but which my desktop absolutely refused to acknowledge until about 20 reconfigurations, new drivers, reboots, altered settings, etc. About the only other thing I got done was a review of Deep Space Nine's "Rules of Engagement" which I couldn't post till evening due to the router wrangling.
