well there's nothing else I can do now.
this fan is doing a piss-poor job. so bad that the maintenance man came to check up on it and the carpet is still damp. He said it'll have to stay over the whole weekend.
to put it straight-forward, I'm not going to be sleeping for the next two days because this damn fan is so loud.
I'm just going to return to my current workload while I'm awake and hopefully finish it. this has just been a painful experience.
I'm sorry to clog your feeds with my useless tripe, but i figure you deserve to know.
