The wot hotter heater has been
fixed, amid curses from the plumber. He
installed a new unit (top of the line—hey, we weren't paying for it)
yesterday (“I'll give you hot water if I have to stay here and heat it
myself with a match!”) but had to return today to reroute an ill placed
piped so it would pass inspection if it ever came to that. He said that the
original installation, bad as it was, was probably done that way to save a
measly $20 or so during building.
Spring and Wlofie both said that the
original savings of $20 then is now costing the Rental Office big bucks.
But I cynically replied that the original company is no longer the owner. In fact,
the company that built this play may not have been the company we rented
these units from, so who knows who palmed that
$20 (possibly per unit, and there are several hundred units).
So things are pretty much back to status quo here at the Facility in the
Middle of Nowhere.
And I hope it stays that way.

The dates are the permanent links to that day's entries (or

simple: Start with the base link for this site: https://boston.conman.org/, then add the date you are

You may also note subtle shading of the links and that's
intentional: the “closer” the link is (relative to the
page) the “brighter” it appears. It's an experiment in
using color shading to denote the distance a link is from here. If
you don't notice it, don't worry; it's not all that
