I really need a dog or something to force me to leave the house from time to time. I am feeling a lot better (although definitely not 100%). I had a few errands that really needed running, so I hoped in the car only to realize that the battery was close to dead. Between the alarm system and the 1/4 watt draw from carputer (that is the draw in suspend to ram mode) it doesn’t take much to kill the POS battery in my car. I have treated the battery poorly, draining it totally on 6-7 occasions, so I really only have myself to blame. I really should replace it with a good deep-cycle battery. I know a lot of stereo and car-puting nuts swear by Optima YellowTop batteries. Anyways, the whole point of this story is that I got a jump and managed to get out of the house for the first time in over a week.
