The screw extractor tool came yesterday but Valentine’s Day activities got in the way of getting back to the computer. So today I got back to it. I had no problem getting the screw out and taking the computer apart to get to the logic board. I started to remove the old capacitors but had a problem with the soldering iron. I spent most of the day working on this. I could not just heat them up and pull them out. After doing some more research I needed to get a DE-soldering iron. So I ordered it and it will come tomorrow which means at the end of the day when I need to spend time with my husband so this won’t get touched again until probably Saturday afternoon or Sunday. Ugh! I hate not having the tools I need to get these things done. It will get done though.
1.88 miles indoors today. Although the temperature got up to 71 degrees today I didn’t get outside because of some intermittent rain. Later in the afternoon I did get outside and enjoyed the temps and walked half a mile. The temperature broke a record at Dulles Airport when it got up to 76 degrees. Too warm for mid February.
