Put the new blade on the mower and finished the lawn. The old blade was not worth trying to fix.

Took Frost's Nemesis out and did some root hacking. That's gonna need to be a separate project, as it's far tougher than estimated, and I have to dig out the roots.

Tried to remove the nut holding on the blades, and it's very seriously on the spinner. It's gonna take a different kind of vise grip than I have to get it off.

Added a couple more fans to Ultra's case for the video board and the memory. I need to make a change because I miscalculated the depth of one of the fans by about an eighth of an inch and it won't fit now. Figures.

The yard needs some work. I have a power rake blade coming next week that I'm gonna try on the side yard that has essentially no grass left and see if it works there. It's gonna get mulched anyway, so it's not a big deal if it tears up the dirt.

What's happened is over the years, the buildup of dead leaves and grass has raised the level of the topsoil by a few inches so it's over the top of the sidewalks and the like. To really fix it would involve some heavy-duty tools and more time than I can spend on it, so I'm gonna do what I can as an interim.

Bed soon, I think. Vicodin is my friend.
