Kind of late, isn't it? One of the three power units for the stardrive array is on the fritz (no offense) again. It's a middlin' mysterious failure; it will run at reduced power and I am fair wore out, so I tweaked it to a level that I am moderately confident it can hold and bailed out for bed. There's no playin' with high voltage when you're not a hundred percent.
Fun, fun. This stuff never breaks at the start of the day, when you''re all bright and chipper and the factory techs who know all the gotchas are easily available. Nope -- it's the evening you're hopin' for a decent dinner and have laundry an' mending to do.
Well, it pays, anyhow.
