    New Computer: The Never-Ending Saga

    Yeah, so I uploaded one graphic here, but my woohoo seems to have been very premature. sigh. A few hours later, I couldn’t upload again and the next day, I couldn’t even get online. The modem was active, but Mr T was having none of it.

    Tech Guy had emailed to ask how things were going and I sent him info that he said made me smarter than about 99% of his clients. Well, I’m anal and need to UNDERSTAND things. I’ve been learning and making a notebook. E.g., I now know what a “driver” is and even more arcane, why my registry has IP thingies for version 4 and version 6.

    I think maybe the fact that I’d tried so hard and so long on my own to fix the darn thing, he decided to come over … for the THIRD time. He’s doing this as a friend. (He’s also a big fan of Chrissy’s Site Bites and wants me back to work! LOL)

    We had a wonderful time, yapping about politics, religion, our kids and grandkids. He’s retired military and was a big help to our girls. He told us two stories we’d never heard about our uniformed daughters. One I can’t share, but the other is a HOOT so … diverting from computer tale here:

    When Corporal K was in high school, Tech Guy ran a kind of adventuring slash scouting group that was co-ed and she joined it. He said on the first camping trip, the kids came in from gathering firewood and K had tears streaming. She’s broken three fingernails!

    The first time Tech Guy saw her after she graduated from Parris Island, he asked how many times she’d cried over broken finger nails and she told him, “Sir. Marines do not cry.” (He’s Army.) “And if the Corps had wanted me to have fingernails, they would’ve been issued.” ROFLLLL

    Okay, so puter. You’ll notice maybe I’ve been way too quiet, which you know only happens when I’m sick or technologically impaired. This weekend actually was both. Yesterday was brutal physically. Ouch. But never mind that.

    Tech Guy came over a couple days ago and spent an entire evening here with Mr T, poking into places I didn’t know he had and teaching me some nifty tricks, like how to “ping” to test my actual internet speed. Then he pulled the system apart and individually tested each component to figure out if I needed a new network cord, network router or internet cable box.

    The ONLY problem he found was I had two versions of Firefox uploaded and we figured, maybe they’re fighting, so took them both off, then he downloaded a new one directly from the internet cable box. It runs fine. I just have to redo my bookmarks and toolbar.

    He scooted around the net and for a change I got to see just how FAST Mr. T is supposed to be. UNbelievable. I barely blinked and entire web sites were loaded. So now at least I know what the goal is.

    Sadly, his prognostication (“Mr T is going to stop behaving the minute I leave”) proved to be more than a joke. I couldn’t get online at all for two days. I’m here now, briefly, but it was SLOW going to get here.

    Monday, Dearest is going to take the internet cable box in and exchange it for a new one. That at least is a free and relatively easy thing to do and it’s even likely a part of the problem anyway, since the thing has been crashing once or twice a day like clockwork for months. We didn’t know that was not normal, but Tech Guy said it isn’t and all we have to do is take the box in and get a new one.

    This would no doubt all have been easier if the problem was one thing that was just wrong all the time. The up side is that I’ve learned a LOT about computing and I love learning new stuff and understanding my tools. And making the screenshots and print outs of puter info for my Mr T binder has gotten me up and running with my new graphics software.

    Ooo lah lah, I am now running the professional version of Photoshop. Color me special. I was using Photoshop Elements, which is the “prosumer” version … what they call serious photo and digital art hobbyists. I’d have stayed with it, but Dearest got a line on a great deal so we jumped at it. The Adobe suite also includes the software for making and modifying pdf files, which is something I’ve often wanted to be able to do.

    So short story long … I’m still moving and organizing files. 70,000 files down, a bazillion left to go. Naturally, I did the easy ones first. Gag. I also figured out how to compile my fonts, because I had some on the old machine that I love that didn’t come with Photoshop. Aren’t I clever? I moved and INSTALLED them. Ha ha. Take that, computer demon!

    Oh, one more funny story from Tech Guy. He works IT at a major (super liberal) university and last week went to a bldg to upgrade it to wireless. He asked a prof to go online and see if it was working for her and just about fell OVER when the site she popped up was PoliNation!!! She says she’s a regular here, but he couldn’t remember her name. Honestly. Men. They never remember the important stuff. Harumph.

    I am SO curious to know who this is. Don’t need a real name or anything, but if you see this and recognize yourself, could you email me at Chrissy@ChrissyOriginals.com and just tell me your screenname? Your office is practically next door to where my graduate school department was when I was in grad school at said liberal university. I mean … talk about serendipity!

    • I was in the middle of posting when my computer went bonkers yesterday.I had to work all day and my tech guy wasn’t returning my calls.He was busy and finally called me.I tried to explain the problem,but he came right over to check it out.Ir wasn’t a virus,it seems my mouse and keyboard were sending conflicting commands to the computer.I had the Bears mouse my grandkids gave me last Christmas stored away,and I talked him into selling me the test keyboard he uses.I have to admit this machine is so addictive I get stressed out when I can’t use it.When you’re an idiot like me having a tech guy that makes house calls and is very reasonable on his charges is a blessing.

        My hubby is in IT and thinking of moonlighting….just curious, if it’s not too nosy, what do your tech guys charge for house calls? He just did a house call for someone he works with and was probably overpaid because the guy is a nice guy.

        • My guy’s basic rate is $30/hr,which is really cheap.Most computer people charge $100-$150 for a house call.I gave him $50 and twice what he said the keyboard was worth,just because I appreciated his quick response to my call for help.You don’t go cheap on a peson like that.They are worth every penny when you’re cut off from the outside world.

  2. Another good report, Pete. The story about parents getting arrested for attempting to send their kids to a decent school made me furious. I think my blood pressure made it up into the triple digits!

    • What A Hoot

      I must be missing something here. Mama is guilty (well was, until the gov changed it) of stealing. She took something that was not hers. Back in my school days, and even now around here (until this year where you can cross-district now), you pulled yourself up by the bootstraps and found a way to move to the district that was a safer environment; a safer culture. You sacrificed. Parents break the law when they take and lie to take what is not theirs. As to “A Tree Grows In Brooklyn”–We read it and analyzed it from a moral standpoint; from personal character. The father was found lacking it. It is an awful book, in my opinion, and glorifies forced (stealing) redistribution of wealth. Like I said, I might be missing something.

      • I’ve never read “A Tree Grows in Brooklyn.” What got me about the article was the fact that a mother whose child is in a failing school, who can’t afford private school, and can’t afford to move to a better school district, is so desperate she feels she has to resort to deception to get her kid a decent education so as not to perpetuate the cycle of poverty. What she did was wrong, since it involved dishonesty, but I can’t blame her very much for thinking that deception was the lesser of two evils in this case. I can’t even say for sure that if I were in her position, I would not have done the same thing. Where I live now, the public schools have open enrollment — not that it affects me, since my kids don’t go to school — and it’s too bad that they don’t have it where this woman lives. The whole racket of government-run schools is so corrupt that it’s hard for me to feel outraged when one mother ends up defrauding the system a little. It’s like cheating on your taxes — another thing that I don’t do myself (mostly because I’m sure I’d get caught if I did), but I don’t experience a lot of moral outrage over the fact that some people do it. Slaves that escaped from the plantation were also in violation of the law and depriving their owners of their lawful property… and when one slave got away, it meant the remaining slaves had to work harder… but I still don’t blame the slaves who tried to escape.

  3. What A Hoot

    don’t know where to put this so it is going here and mayhaps it will travel beyond here.

    All papers and news sources commenting GuyGuru “assassinated” (Anwar al Awlaki) was born on American Soil and a whole bunch of conversation about assassinating a US citizen. Next hear Rush talking about why all news leading with GuyGuru as born in America. Now this little tidbit in article over Canada Free Press, “Anwar Al Awlaki was born in New Mexico on April 21, 1971, to a Yemeni diplomat who was assigned in the U.S. at that time. Both of his parents were in the U.S. attending New Mexico State University as graduate students.” (http://canadafreepress.com/index.php/article/40892)

    Now, I was taught this, “children born to diplomats and other recognized government officials from foreign countries will not receive U.S. citizenship if born on American soil. You can learn more about this by looking through Title 8 of the U.S. Code.”

    In my browsing bumped into this, http://www.thenewamerican.com/usnews/immigration/8249-cis-children-of-foreign-diplomats-are-citizens

    The result of people thinking GuyGuru is a citizen is those simply questioning whether or not he should have been killed from a direct presidential order are called Ronbots (Sorry, I am not one) or unpatriotic and terrorist supporting anti-military. People, conservatives who were standing together are distancing and ostracizing each other -chaos- over something that many not even apply? Has the majority (Anti-Regime) been set-up to split off further into separate groups, each having a disdain for the other?

    Anyone else here anything about son of diplomat? From the article in New American in July 2011 it looks like, when the NBC thrown into the mix, it may not be a conspiracy after all to make “All the world is American and America is All The Worldl”
