Only Black Friday shopping I did was Norton Antivirus. 10 seat (overkill for what I needed) on sale for $29.99 at Best Buy and London Drugs. Cheaper than the 5 seat.

I just happened to look back towards the beginning of this thread, and you are correct. I don't know why I used the #60.

The system does not reduce the count when something gets canned??????

I would think it would.

Heavy fog this am and 60+ in the afternoon and then back to our lower than normal overnight. And people ask me why I don't utilize the adaptive program on my thermostat.

That would be very desirable conditions here, which currently is mostly cloudy with a high of 45F.

I was given a "Nest" thermostat for Xmas a couple years ago. I took one look at the wiring it required, which differs greatly from the wiring coming out of the wall into the unit I installed 10 years ago and said F-it. I'll just keep the one I've got. Although not internet-enabled, it has multi-programmable settings for each day/night.

Oh I use the setback feature but this Honeywell also came with the adaptive setting which tracks the temp swings and can activate itself to have the house to the set point at the selected time. The problem is it utilizes about 5 days data to achieve that. When you have yo-yo swings like often do you can't count on it to be accurate. It was pretty state of art 23 years ago.

We never set back more than 5 degrees and as long as the air is blowing it is warm enough to get up and start moving. On the bitter nights I just do a hold over ride.

Our electrical company offers free thermostat installations. If you are gullible enough, they'll come and install their new eco thermostats that are programmed to offset usage of heat or cooling during peak periods.

So, you'll be walking around the house with blankets on in the wintery cold weather, and sweltering more than just a bit in the summer heat.

I have three monitors running on my current office workstation. Even with a localized ceiling fan, in the summer, those three monitors combined with the heat vented out of the PC case, generate enough heat to almost warrant my putting in a separate AC unit, just for my office area.

The last thing I will ever do is let the POCO install that crap on my system. Their job is to provide the power and mine is to pay for what I use.

Are you still running CRT monitors? My LED runs so cool it does not even have vent holes. This new runs cooler than the one it replaced. The CPU still kicks out a little heat.

Which is exactly why I've never considered this program.

CRT? I only see those in older movies these days. I think the last CRT I had was at least 12 years ago (maybe longer). Just looking at them makes me chuckle. No, I've been and still use LED monitors. Mine aren't new, so I don't know if the new ones generate less heat, but mine still do. It's certainly not a lot of heat, but having three going all day long in a smallish room, and of course the box venting a continuous stream of warm air adds up during the day.

Yeh. On Netflix I started watching a BBC detective show set in the Caribbean and the monitors really date the series. I had almost forgotten how large they were.

I still have one in the basement that I've never carried to the recycle center. I need to do that before they stop accepting them.

To carry out? Big, awkward and heavy too!

For a guy with a worn knee a 17" one is a tad heavy up the steps. I also thought I might set up a server down there someday and it was good enough for that limited nix use.

Now a VPS is so cheap as to make that impractical.

Try lugging 4 large bags of water softener salt from the car trunk in the garage, then into the basement. And while going down the basement stairs is certainly easier than going up, while carrying something heavy, I have to hope gravity doesn't try to increase my speed going down too fast! Because once you start going down the stairs, it's hard to slow down, never mind stop!

If I had to do that on a regular basis I would be building a fold down slide of some description. Of course I have garage steps to the basement and would not have to look at it on a daily basis inside the home.

How long does a bag last?

When the brine tank is empty (which is when purchase the new salt bags), all 4 are dumped into the brine tank at once (which is another feat of strength). I'd guess they'd last about 4 weeks.

We had a timer on the heat at home. Down to 65 over night and set to turn on in time to warm up just before having to get up for work.

So did anyone do any Cyber Monday shopping yesterday? Apparently the mall by us was busy.

Yep, I've got it set to 18C overnight, and up to 21.5C in the morning.

Spent it all on Black Friday. Nothing left for Monday.

I skipped Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Just could not think of anything to buy.

I am going out later for Buy Beer Tuesday.

So what treats did you buy?

@LMD that sure sounds like a lot of salt. We don't have a softener and I did not realize they went though that much salt. Thought your climate probably precludes it most people around here have the tank in their garage.

No treats. Just practical stuff like Anti Virus and sheets bought in store.

More like Holiday Relief.

With a projected high of 27F I'm not sure I will go now. Snow flurries and 27. Quite a change from sunny and 63 on Sunday.
