Finally Friday

By , February 29, 2008 7:18 pm

And another week is at an end. Raining out right now which does rather match my mood. Still under the weather and needing way too much sack time. Things going on but not gonna go into any of it on here right now. Will get into it at a later date. Having trouble with the fingers hitting the wrong keys and having to retype lots of stuff so will cut this short and close for now. Till tomorrow…

    It was a Friday indeed. Mostly worked on getting new tablet PCs gong, but had a couple of quick “call outs” to fix some things in a timely fashion. Went OK, all told.

    Today I was doing some long-delayed (procrastinated?) computer chores here at home when someone called and I got to go help figure out sound configurations in Vista. What fun. Think I found the important things, and the person using it should be able to just “dial-in” the settings–something they don’t need me for. Picked up a dead PC to check out–the one that was replaced by the new Vista machine. The new machine was nice–Athlon 64 X 2 4800, 3 GB of RAM, 500 GB HD, DVD burner, 22″ wide-screen LCD (nice display!) and they had 70W RMS 5.1 speakers. Vista Home Premium, so stick a tuner card in it and record TV. If only it wasn’t Vista.

    Something I DIDN’T get done before I left was figure out how to configure PCLinuxOS the way I want to. Gonna have to find some commands, I guess. Well, actually I DID find a list of commands in the Help section before I left, but did not have time to do anything with it. Need an updated video driver (will only do 800 X 600 at 43 Hz–43 Hz?) and even with 1280 MB of RAM certain things are kinda slow, which I think are video related. Tried to play a DVD, and Kaffeine gave me an error. Got to play some more…

    Well, from the smell, the “Brats-in-a-blanket” are getting done–better go check…
