"And as the sun breaks through the darkest clouds,
So honour peereth in the meanest habit."

Leo: No news that I'm an Apple fanboy. At one time, I was more fanatical than now, but the basic premise is that I like the hardware the "mothership" produces. Good stuff. Usually rock-solid, and when it's not? Rock-solid warranty. It's about the only product that I suggest an extended warranty for. I trust the Apple extended warranty, having, on separate occasions, used that extended warranty. Worked, and worked well. Stand behind what they sell and service. Good stuff. As Mercury backs down into your sign and as Neptune opposes your sign, and as Venus and the Sun move forward in your sign, think about those extended warranties. Some of them are not a good deal. In my examples, it was phone, an iPod, and two laptops. The laptops, each, separately, over two years old, had to have hard drives and batteries. Covered. No questions. That was cool, as, one of the extended warranties had less than a few months left, which, in effect, doubled the usable lifetime of that one machine. However, while not an isolated example, it's the easiest example I've got at hand, for Leo. Most of those extended warranties? Rip-off. Just extra gravy for the dealership, the salesman, someone along the line. Most of those extended service contracts don't really work. That's the problem. I know, from hard-won personal experience, that the Apple one works. And works well, as they tend to honor their obligations. Wouldn't it be nice if everyone did? Here's the hint: most people don't. Further hint: don't buy the extra, add-on stuff. Not now. No extended service warranty. Unless, of course, it's an Apple.
In time for Mercury Retrograde, a new three-minute track.
Binaural -scientific- Beats Engineering, play three times, a day, three times in a row, guaranteed to ameliorate the effects of Mercury Retrograde.
Virgo: Sometimes, the simplest solutions are the best. With Mercury doing a little backwards jaunt, and this backwards jaunt, it's opposite from Neptune, with these two planets, a big one and little one, acting in cahoots? Simple. Simpler. Simplest. There's a new tweak with web server software, the backend, the "motor" of what I use to serve my site. Sites. Multiple sites. "Change this, add this plug-in, adjust the output control, and it works better." I've gotten a little smarter -- I've been doing this for some time now, I've gotten to the point where I'll test on one, low-volume website before I'll make wholesale changes.
