I have a huge stack of empty boxes ready to flatten. I was able to push a few into the bins today but they were chock full; they should be empty by now so I could make a trip this evening before dark.
There are a gazillion old cassettes around here and an equal number of 3.5" floppy disks. I'm set for converting the cassettes I'm keeping, but for the floppies I have no drives to read them. I may have to get a small USB-connected drive for examining at those. The office is slowly looking like a space I can work in, but there is still a lot of stuff to get rid of instead of putting back.
Facebook is broken for now, not letting me follow up on all of my own posts and things I shared, which is particularly annoying. I've reported it with a couple of screenshots.
Rain in the forecast overnight, which will be wonderful if we actually get some. Meanwhile it's so hot right now that the region broke a power usage record again today so I'll load my washer and program it to run at about 4am, and won't run the dishwasher until bedtime, to spread out the usage. I also have to turn off all of the computer equipment and get it moved into my office, once I'm satisfied the desks are in the best positions.
