After church some acacia and youth groupers got together to play frisbee at UCD. Ran pretty hard and was pretty exhausted afterward. Returned to berkeley with joe late in the evening, and decided to try and fix our broken floor lamp after arriving. Took the switch part of the lamp apart and tried to figure out how it works.

I then took some random metal and bypassed the normal dimming system to complete the circuit manually. The light works now, but the normal way of turning it on and adjusting the brightness is completely gone. It’s on at 100% brightness as long as its plugged in.
