The Sun Comes Up In the Morning


Kittens of the Apocalypse Alarm Clock.

No, my toes are not kitty toys.

I just love rural north baja georgia dial-up connections. Forget loading graphic images. Look at the photo-inclusive posts later. The only exeption, check my feedback on images posted; simply stop the download when the text is displayed, don't wait for the photos. They're my photos, after all, and I do know what they look like.

Must do a hog-feed run today. This morning.

And work on SWMBO's computer, replacing and configuring a new hard drive.

And pack bags, because tomorrow I'm off on a short-notice GE Healthcare Technology related trip. A week in Scenic Tennessee, wonderful photo opportunities... which will mostly be missed because it's training classes time. Well, there will be opportunities for more things than training. *G*

Coffee. Need more coffee.

We determined that not only is the hard drive from SWMBO's Gateway gift not booting anymore, the EIDE controller on the motherboard Is Dead, Jim. So even installing a new ATA hard drive, with seperate controller card? Fine, the BIOS will detect the drive, but it's not formatted; and the system won't access Floppy 3.5, nor CD-RW, nor DVD-ROM.

So. After brief phone conversation with SWMBO, a new CPU box is in her future. I'll salvage what parts I can out of the old box.

Just now, it's time for my dinner. Oh, and for a gift to meself. I shall be watching an episode of Deadwood this evening while eating. First season.
