Sophie. Sometimes she's just so unbelievably cute.
Over the weekend, I changed the switches for a light in my house that is on the landing of the stairs going to the second level. I have been living there for almost 10 years, and have NEVER used that light.
The downstairs switch broke, and I changed both switches. I wired them EXACTLY like they were originally wired. After turning the breaker back on, and testing, I noticed that the light only went on when both switches were on. I said "wonderful, something is screwed up." My wife informed me that the light has worked that way for the past 10 years!!! I was stunned. What's the point of a 3 way switch if they don't work correctly.
So, I had to take the switches apart, check the schematics, and rewired the switches. Now they work like they should. My wife is thrilled, and we're both scratching our heads why it was wired that way in the first place. I'm scratching my head that I didn't notice it before.
But, it works now, so I'm smiling. I even used it when I went to bed. It's the first time in 10 years that I've used that light.
I had that same issue in our kitchen when we moved in. I'm a "copy and paste" kind of electrician, in that I'll take pics of wiring and just do the same to a new switch. Couldn't figure out why, when the near switch was off, the far one wouldn't work. Finally talked to a person who knew what was what, and managed to get it working right.
I have developed a plan which—so long as both my Fryette Sig:X and my Midas Venice U16 sell by the end of April—will clear all of my debt by this time next year. The really cool part is that I will have an additional ≈$30 to hand.
Just about knocked myself out while picking up a guitar... got a lovely lump on the bridge of my nose because of it. Tomorrow at work is gonna be fun
This made me smile because I am a complete and utter plonker!
Just got home from seeing Blackberry Smoke:

Fantastic show, love it when bands live up to the standards set by their studio albums.
Just put some flatwound strings (D'Addario Chromes) on my bass.
Something very cool happened yesterday
Which, if it works out, would be fecking AWESOME!!!
However, some stuff about counting chickens and eggs not being hatched means I'm not saying anymore till I know for sure either way
But yeah, there's a large grin on my face this morning...
Awesome!!! Hope it works out

Getting a Boss DS-1 via a man I have never seen in my life.
He had a post on ebay saying he'd trade the DS 1 for any odd pedal, I contacted him and he made off with a Boss NS 2 I had lying around.
This is extraordinary and it's only happening among musicians as far as I can tell.
I didn't know him, he didn't know me, we just knew we were both in the same hobby and thusly we trusted each other.
That really put a smile on my face.
(The fact that the DS 1 has all the bearings to become a staple of my live sound helps, too. I don't even mind that he has gotten a much better deal comparing listing price of the two effects. thios DS 1 is a beast with my Bugera! )
The guitar/gear community can be a wonderful, trust affirming thing when it works like that.
There's some great people out there and I'm delighted for you bud
They got #6 quiet wrong.
I had a load of problems at work yesterday that needed to be sorted out today. All done! Sometimes things just work out.
After reading some post on other threads, this forum really needs a "Fuck that in the heart" emoji
9 and 13. Correlation or causation?
Listening to Dance Of Death by Iron Maiden. Best (studio) album they have ever produced.
Really happy with my design work as of late. I want to, maybe, start of kickstarter for a limited run of some poster prints... but I'm not sure :S Either way, I like it.
Suddenly, True Temperament frets don't seem so bad....
