It seems to be unblowed up this morning. probably was last night, but I moved to a different outlet for testing purposes and I misguidedly trusted my son when he said he reset the power tip on it..... sigh.

Still that's the second time it's ?overheated in recent history -first time I had really been working that sucker and it felt hot and smelled funny so i just let it cool for an hour or two, but yesterday I'd barely gotten started, so I suspect it's on its last wheels.

Also I really wanted the scorching you groove thread for this topic, but my groove was too scorched to find it, evidently

Low voltage will cause overheating as well as obstructed cooling air.

Well I blew up my vacuum clener again today. twice. It probably be time to get a new one (it just overheats). But that's not what's bumming my stone.

Last night, I thought of another avenue for my job search and lo and behold I found a job that I could do the shit out of and it would be interesting and meaningful and paid well. It was actually posted 10 days ago, but there was no closing deadline for apps and it was late, so I didn't apply last night. Started this morning, seeing where I needed to tweak my resume and what sort of cover letter/additional material was required. Called away because someone arrived to repair my window and when I got back to it a couple hours ago.... it was no longer open. Which means that even if I'd applied last night when I found it, it would probably have been too late, but it's still a bummer. (There are older job postings still listed, so I'm pretty sure it means it got filled today... )

Yeah, most places only delete a posting after they've made an offer and the person accepted, which means someone was already through screening/interviews/etc. by the time you were seeing it. Still, a bummer--but at least you've come across this new avenue now, and I bet there will be more job postings of this nature in the future. You can do it!
