A word used in personal prophecy - Promotion


To be promoted does that mean you must have a new title and new salary?

Even if people listen to you more you have been promoted.

And like finding the right gear ratio on a push bike a small promotion can mean more reward for effort. A better arrangement of activities. A simplification that leaves you less stressed and busy.

When you are promoted it leaves room around you for others to be promoted.

Professor Snidlesnorps guide to Boomerangs

Professor Snidlesnorps guide to Boomerangs.

This is the vegetarian version. A meat-lovers version would have a modified second last panel.
(Use your imagination.)

Fixing an electric toy train engine

I was asked to repair a toy train that was not working.

After checking the batteries for power with a multi-meter I guessed it was the motor and pulled it apart.

I cleaned the grease off the rotor and took some fresher grease, still black looking, from the contact points.

I spread the grease around the clean rotor and reassembled it.

It Worked!

Lap Top Power Socket

An Asus laptop had power problems.

I found a few videos.

Short summary

A long summary

I played the short video until I was confident then I counted all the screws.

I made a plan...



Battery 1

rubber feet 4

Screw under feet 4

one screw at back in battery area 1

Under cover 1

Underneath screws 11

small door 1

screws under door 2

battery area screws 5

Keyboard 1

Keyboard ribbon 2

Optical drive 1

screws in optical drive area 3

Under track pad 7

IO cable 1

Speaker cable 4

IO Board screw 1

IO board removal 1

Fix power plug

And gave it a go, taking a photo at every step.
Then I soldered up the broken part.

It was the gold solid wire coming out the rear of the socket!
Can you see the black break in the gold wire?

Then I loaded the photos onto my laptop and went through them in reverse.
Using the photos as a check procedure.

I had to watch a few segments of the long video in order to connect back in the ribbon cables.
That was the most difficult part. But my photos showed me the before connections, so I kept persevering until the ribbon cables looked the same.

No screws were lost or damaged in this processes!
And none left over. I used magnets to hold the screws.

Monthly Blessing

Strength, God give you strength to do the things he has called you to do. To love, to live, to be there for your family, friends and fellowship. Energy to get up and get going, to think right. God give you power to make the choice that brings life. Dunamus power to break through those things that are keeping you back and out of the blessing of God. The blessing of the Lord makes you rich and he adds no sorrow with it. (Proverbs 10:22)

God bless you.
