Firstly, if you saw my previous thread and wondered why it had no text other than what and when, I had a promise to keep. Shame, I had a pretty good story from that morning and now nobody will know the details I left out in the write-up you get when you click the images. lol.gif
 
In the continuing saga of using my C8 at the university, I've had a few stumbles, such as not being able to keep my laptop on under cold temperatures, forgetting the barlow, and not realizing my Power Tank couldn't handle a power strip, but I finally managed to get it all working without an issue. It's fortunate I got that Power Tank issue sorted out by this morning because the air was freezing cold again! I had to scrape ice off my car windows before driving to my spot on campus, something I never thought would happen here in APRIL!

I'll "release" you from your vow of silence if that's permissible..! :lol:
