Re: Notes To Self

I empathize with you regarding Windows 10 problems. I've not experienced the particular problem you describe with the Home edition because I always had the Pro version on my laptop. Plus, it's not the normal distribution either. As I've mentioned a few dozen times in the past I am a Windows Insider ...

Re: Notes To Self

File sharing has an infinite number of caveats attached to it. My "notes" are the result of me tying to understand the interaction between VM's and their host. The presumption here is that I want both Windows and Linux to be functional at the same time. That cannot be done via dual (multiple) boot s...

Notes To Self

So, I have this Windows 7 desktop computer. Being the geek that I am, I installed Oracle's Virtual Box software so that I can also run guest Linux software inside the Windows host environment. Virtual Machines, being what they are, share hardware but do not intrinsically share virtual hardware. That...

Re: Wired's Picture of the Week

I believe I talked about this before, but I also grew up in a neighborhood where corner stores were common. The big city was built somewhat in grid fashion. I guess all cities are built the same way. The major thoroughfares ideally form a block around a community of residential houses. Those blocks ...

Re: Wired's Picture of the Week

In some ways Schnucks is surprising. They have certain things that other stores do not carry; the rye flour for example. They have a section for sale items which is pretty impressive if you want what they put on sale. The quality of their produce and meats, however, is average. They don't sell lamb ...

Re: Wired's Picture of the Week

Ahhh yes ... Dierbergs. There are two within 8 miles driving of my home and I used to think they were pretty good. Typically Saturday night is pizza night at Yogi's Den and I do it all by hand except for the crust. Up north I would get somebody's flat bread pizza crust - don't recall the name but th...

Re: HP printer back to its original problem.

I'm rambling again! Sure sign of olde age, hi hi. It's called rag chewing and us old timers live for it. One of the coolest things about the last computer I built is the case from Corsair. Among it's many great features it has a sliding door on top with a SATA HDD connector underneath. It can accom...

Re: Wired's Picture of the Week

All the big selling items have the same problem. Toilet paper, soup, chips/pretzels, and soda are way too prolific. There is only so much shelf space in the stores and the competition to get more and more of it is fierce. So, if you can sell three pallets full of regular Coke and only four cartons o...

Re: Wired's Picture of the Week

Hi Vikki. Mmm, I do not have much occasion to fly, but I have no fears of doing it. The security at the airports makes me nervous, but I do get some special treatment being the age I am. Other than that, flying is no big deal. Both large corporations and tiny mom-n-pop operations are prone to go thr...

Re: HP printer back to its original problem.

I have had connectivity problems here in Missouri, but not up north. You might think that is odd because up north I used DSL over the phone lines and down here we have coaxial cable all the way up to the wall sockets. Even then the coax is connected to the TV decoders directly. Coax also goes to the...

Re: Wired's Picture of the Week

You might find it hard to believe, but the broken departments within the corporations create a healthy competition. Each group is looking out for it's own interests, as opposed to working towards a common goal set by the corporation. That common goal is implied but much like the elephant in the room...

Re: HP printer back to its original problem.

I stand corrected about the (Syslink?) WiFi card shipped with the Silver Yogi. I disabled it and never had a need to use it so that my mind was thinking no rf NIC card. The presence of that card would explain how you can see your neighbor's networks. When I suggested putting the repeater inside your...

Re: Wired's Picture of the Week

It took quite a few years of working with engineers to figure out some of the basics of how a business is run. There is a constant mistrust (for lack of a better word) between marketing, engineering, and accounting. Then there are the executives who think all three are stupid idiots. While there was...

Re: HP printer back to its original problem.

Going to Cat 6 cable would reduce crosstalk and not degrade your signal over a long length of wire. Cat 5 cables are just as good for most applications. I think you are onto something with the theory of aluminum walls dampening your WiFi signals. The solution would be to place the repeater inside yo...

Re: Wired's Picture of the Week

I worked with engineers nearly all my professional life. There is a core group that is burdened with the design of a product and all it's implications. Once the design is accepted, read that to mean given a budget, no more design effort is applied. It's all tweaking and patching after that. I'm gues...

Re: HP printer back to its original problem.

USB hubs may not need drivers, but most likely in your case the Windows OS can't tell exactly what hardware is connected. The problem is in the USB firmware/software on the motherboard, or the hub itself giving a false ID. It's akin to Linux looking for a printer on the bus and finding it but cannot...

Re: HP printer back to its original problem.

If' you are serious about the Konica products, a call to their PR/advertising people will get you all the information you want, and more. The AIO printers are amazing machines. I'm sure they all function pretty much the same way. My HP doesn't need a computer either. In fact it has it's own web serv...
