Air Quality Alert & System Fans

There's been a fairly widespread Air Quality Alert for what seems like over a week now.

Something about fine particulate matter in the air.

I guess my cough is related to it.

But, computers seem to be getting sick as well.

New Drive In

Well, the new drive is installed. Now the painful process of restoring the files.

Discovered a con about my network backup. Extended character file/directory names are lost in the copy. Probably a limitation of Samba 2.x/RH7.3. Perhaps I'll buy something like a Maxtor One Touch to supplement my desktop backup strategy.

Meanwhile, I packaged up the old drive and I'll be sending it on its way sometime tomorrow.

New 250GB SATA Drive...is here

Now to let it warm up, while I prep my old system the replacement of the old 250GB drive.

Somewhere along the way (probably when I rebooted it last night applying updates), the old drive reappeared....so I'm quickly doing a full backup of the drive.

FedEx was here....

This time I got a delivery attempt notice on my door. It was marked as first attempt.

Guess he knew that he didn't leave me a delivery notice yesterday.... Though there was no UPS delivery notice, even though I know there's a UPS package waiting for me.

Phone Number Conundrum

They should outlaw cutsey phone numbers that use letters.

First they are a pain to dial because you have to look at the phone pad to figure out what number to dial.

And, worse...they don't work if your phone pad doesn't look like this:

    1     2     3
         ABC   DEF

    4     5     6
   GHI   JKL   MNO

    7     8     9
   PQRS  TUV   WXYZ

But, rather you have a Blackberry 7100t, like I do....it looks like:

Franklin County Chapter Mathcounts

Link: http://www.mathcounts.org/

I just found out today that the Franklin County Chapter's Mathcounts will be on February 5th.

Kind of a good thing to know. Because I was contemplating a shopping trip to downtown Columbus this weekend. And, how I would have juggle the other shopping venues I felt that I needed to also hit this weekend.

But, if I'm going to have to be downtown on February 5th...I think I can put those things off until that weekend.

The main consideration was that I needed to do something downtown before February 11th....which kind of leaves this weekend and next weekend as times when I can do it. Though I'm taking Monday afternoon off from work next week. But, one of the other trips I hope to do this weekend is to reschedule an appointment to occur that afternoon.

ZipZoomFly - Maxtor DiamondMax 10 250GB Serial ATA w/16MB Buffer

Link: https://www.zipzoomfly.com/jsp/ProductDetail.jsp?ProductCode=100718-3

Well, it is done.

Order Number Z2478169.

That brings me to a total of 8 250GB drives ordered from ZipZoomFly.com....out of the total of 9 that I've purchased to date.

&#59;D

Hmmm, forgot to see if they carry my current favorite in Ergonomic keyboards.... :oops:

Also forgot to order the KVM that is on my wishlist....though I was thinking I might see if Best Buy has a 4 port version of the 2 port one I have now (which I got from them)....plus there are other things I need to go out and buy this weekend. :P

Today is a bad day for technology....

>:-[

This morning my computer was acting funny. When I rebooted....keyboard was dead.

Fortunately, I had bought a new keyboard in anticipation of keyboard failure (though wrong one). The cleaners at work keep smashing into my keyboard when the clean my cubicle....and it is my keyboard, not the company's. It's an Ergonomic keyboard, rather than the original keyboard. So, far the damage to that keyboard hasn't impaired my ability to use it.

But, home keyboard...unexpected. Wonder if I need to order another spare keyboard now?

Now instead of subjecting some poor random forum to a long rambling thought, I will try to consolidate those things into this blog where they can be more easily ignored profess to be collected thoughts from my mind.
