Getting rid of the critters
Okay so for the past couple of weeks we've had this little bugs that we've been chasing around the kitchen.... and tonight we found the infestation. And it showcases how just like in technology if we'd keep up to date, not keep old stuff around and proactively monitor things, we'd not have bugs.
You see we got bugs in these really old Christmas gifts of food... well food for our dog... dog biscuits that could be baked.... and we'd left them in the back of the cupboard ... unattended, not monitored for so long...that when we finally figured out the source of the bugs we threw not only them away.... but all the other boxes of stuff that the bugs had gotten into.
If we'd been better housekeepers (or bakers.. one of the two) we wouldn't have had this issue. If we'd found the infection when it first started, we'd not be throwing out half our baking supplies... some of them that we do use... I mean who knew bugs liked cornstarch.. I have to buy cornstarch now.
The geek angle to this story?
Keep up to date, monitor the age of your machines, keep an eye on things... so that you don't have to end up throwing out the computer equivalent of the pantry stuff we threw out tonight.
