Home Office Remodel Phase II: Electrical

Well the electrical isn't quite finished yet so I will wait until I get that done which will probably be tonight or tomorrow. But I thought I would post a couple of pictures of what I found when I started opening the ceiling to run the wire for the outlets.

This first pic is from right above where the desk will be.


Dad and I opened the ceiling and the wires on the left fell down just like you see them, and then we noticed the white wire coming out of the box. We grabbed Dad's testers and Yep, just as we thought the wire was hot. The previous "electrition" and I use that term loosely clipped the wire pulled the jacket out so nothing would short and left it sitting there.


Ok I will admit, that was moderately disturbing, but what came next was just down right wrong.



This was one of the craziest things I had ever laid my eyes upon. I could go into explination of all of the wires but I still get lost trying to tie it all together. I know that one wire comes in with power another is for the light which is right near by another is for an outlet on the other side of the room, and the last is for the igniters on the furnace. But that has all been cleaned up too, with more pics forth coming. So stay tuned for Phase II: pt 2 Finished Electrical and Phase III: Phone.

Proper wiring makes the organizing easier.

Create a SHA1 hash of a string

This function will take a string and return the hashed value using System.Security.Cryptography; public static string GetSha1(string value) { var data = Encoding.ASCII.GetBytes(value); var hashData = new SHA1Managed().ComputeHash(data); var hash = string.Empty; foreach (var b in hashData) hash += b.ToString("X2"); return hash; } Thanks to Lars-Erik
I love the sound of the rain in the trees. I am just sitting here on the couch surfing the web in the pouring down rain. It is soo cool to look out the window and realize that for the first time in my 25 yrs that these are our trees. Not our landlords, not my parents, Precia and Me, our trees. The sound is very soothing, more so than staring at a computer screen but what else is a geek like me going to do at 8:00 on a Thursday night. Joe came over tonight so we had brats, we were going to cook them on the grill but then it started pouring down rain, and I didn't really want to roll out the awning as it was getting windy too. So we came back inside and cooked the on the Foreman grill, just as good but not near as fun. We chatted a bit about life in general watched some movie trailers. It was fun. Now I am just waiting for Precia, she should be home soon, she had to play at Graduation today for some kids that will be singing. I hope she is having a good time. Until then, m

It is Official

We are having a baby! In an series of events over the past week, Precia and I ended up at the Hosiptal last night so she could get an IV and get re-hydrated. Once that was started they decided that they needed to check on the baby and make sure it was doing ok. So at 10:30pm we had our first ultrasound. It was absolutly amazing to see those images on the screen and to hear our baby's heart beat 165 bpm, right down the middle for normal at this size. We found out that we are almost exactly 9 weeks along, so hopefully only another 3 weeks of this morning sickness stuff and then it will be smooth sailing, until April 22. We were discharged around 11:30 and made the long trip home. Precia is feeling much better today, better than she has felt since the morning sickness started. So now the goal is to stay hydrated and get through the next 3 weeks.
