In plumbing news, this has been a banner weekend, in that it is the first time in, I think, three years that all the faucets in all the bathrooms are working at the same time. Go us.
The sinks in the women's room have handles now. This seems like an admission of defeat because, well, it is. Those motion sensors seemed like such a cool space-age idea. And they seemed like they'd be reliable since they have no exposed moving parts, and they are used in every airport in the world. But they just suck. Look for the rest to vanish in favor of the lowtech as they fail in the future.
