The furnace here in the Basement has been a bit finicky the last two days, intermittently making the temperature uncomfortably chilly and setting off a wave of Household Climate Change fears.
I’m happy to report that the problem now appears to be fixed. The first tech who came by fixed one part of the problem but missed another aspect (no hard feelings, his diagnosis made sense.) The second technican had the benefit of a bit more experience and recognized an issue particular to this type of furnace.
So he realigned the dilithium matrix and adjusted the matter-antimatter intermix ratio to prevent harmful particle condensation on the field emitters. At least I think that’s what he said. He also gave me an old Macintosh floppy disc with "Transparent Aluminum" written on the label. Wonder what that’s all about.
