Squeeeee!!!! I'm back in business. I really like the the buttons on this keyboard, they have a very good feel. They're not too mushy or too hard. But I'm a key pounder so adjust your perceptions accordingly:) OMG I have a working mouse !!!!!!!!!!  I thought I'd lose my mind before They delivered my stuff.

That's the good news.

My mouse started acting wonky too. It's a good thing I can read the universal mail and ordered a mouse as well. It was bad enough dealing with this damned on screen keyboard, but then he mouse seemed to lose its mind yesterday, and started darting all over the place, going everywhere but where I want it. But knowing my luck they won't be delivered until late today. I'm ready to pull my hair out.

Well this probably doesn't look like any great shakes to some of y'all, but by damn it's a big leap forward for me.

They're just practice pages mind. Not anything complicated yet.

I've been playing with spacing, and font sizes, and colors. I got my index page for my website set up, and some folders. I've linked a second page to the first. I did all this by hand, no html editors, or what have you.

I'm kinda proud of it. I've never dome anything like this before. LOL, I can copy and paste with the best of them though, heh.

Okay, okay so here's the link:

Errrr, well the woman...*Cackle* *Does the snoopy dance of victory over electronics*

I found the flipping driver..Uh huh, uh huh, I found it, I found it...NaNa nanananana. *Sticks tongue out at stupid computer*

I now have SOUND!!!!

I had given up when I thought well I'll try reinstalling the driver even though it's not there. The installer popped up and gave me a damned name instead of generic "driver". Wheeeee, I went online and downloaded the driver and BAM, I've got sound. Heeeeee!

I know. I know. It's a geek thing. Sigh.

So my computer is up and running again!

I'm still waiting on the DW invites.

I've got you moondancer from IJ, and tdd, anyone else?

dreamweaver: Green Hairy thing with a steaming cup of coffee (Default)
Accckkk, Oh noooooes. I've got no sound.

This sucks big time.

I'm gonna buy a separate sound card and install it. I am not pulling my hair out over the sound device. All the drivers are there, but the sound card isn't showing... Icky!

So no music or videos for me until I get a new sound card.

But I'm almost finished getting everything back to right on this box.

Sorry y'all. I decided to reformat my HD to get rid of all the crap I've built up over the years. No virus or anything, just the tons of oddball pieces of unnecessary junk that have bogged my system down, that even the registry cleaners and so forth missed. So I stick my handy dandy factory made recovery disc, that came with the computer, into the ROM drive, and WTF, uh oh, doesn't work.


So, after cussing and ranting a bit, and waving my fist at the inanimate object, I reloaded Windows XP from the XP OS install disc, and then had to limp onto the internet to hunt down five or ten drivers. Oh boy, I've been having some real fun let me tell you!

All my stuff is going to have install discs with the drivers from now on, I can promise you that! I bought this machine in 2005, and it's a real joy to have to find drivers for stuff on a proprietary system. Medion had the motherboard built to their specs and used some other stuff that has had me scratching my head. I think I'm gonna go with a new video card that has the drivers safely on a disc, and when I get everything the way I want it, I'm gonna burn all those drivers to a disc so I have it handy in case I need it again.

I finally got the all the drivers but a couple for my printer loaded up today, the printer ones I can get on the manufacturers website. And I've got an install disc around here somewhere.

It's a big PITA, but my machine is running again, and it zips along like a brand new machine:)

Now, I'm in the process of reloading software and such, So It may be a few more days yet before I'm posting regularly again. I have to fit all my merry making with the computer around the rest of the everyday stuff.

I also have to download all the Windows patches AGAIN!

I can do it, but I hate futzing around with machinery :(

Be damned if I'm gonna pay someone to do it.

So there's my long winded hello, I've been temporarily interrupted, but I'll be back post:)

And a weird true tale of woe...

Okay so I told y'all I got my new phone right?

Okay, I'm happy as happy can be..

I installed all the batteries and charged all the hand sets for 24 hours..

I geekily set about rerouting my phone line and dsl splitter through a brand new surge protector with a phone line/data line protector.

This on Woot

I've been looking for something small and portable. And this one has a crank, and is rechargable, so you can use it when the power goes out. It also has a flashlight. I can stick this in a pocket or a purse. It's also a darned good price. The other places I've looked want more than 20.00 just for one. So now I've got my flashlights and radios for hurricane season. Now I need a good deal on a rechargable head lamp that I can use hands free.

Oh, and I finally got my new phone. *snerk* I found the model I was looking for with 4 handsets(one waterproof) and it got here in the mail yesterday. I've set it up and tested it, and it seems to be working fine. I lucked out and found it for less than half of what the retail price has been running. So I'm good to go for a bit anyway. I'm still stocking canned goods and and filling my emergency pantry. Sigh.

HTTrack is a free (GPL, libre/free software) and easy-to-use offline browser utility.

It allows you to download a World Wide Web site from the Internet to a local directory, building recursively all directories, getting HTML, images, and other files from the server to your computer. HTTrack arranges the original site's relative link-structure. Simply open a page of the "mirrored" website in your browser, and you can browse the site from link to link, as if you were viewing it online. HTTrack can also update an existing mirrored site, and resume interrupted downloads. HTTrack is fully configurable, and has an integrated help system.

WinHTTrack is the Windows 9x/NT/2000/XP release of HTTrack, and WebHTTrack the Linux/Unix/BSD release. See the download page.

Version 3.43-4 (03/19/2009)

I use this program, and it works great on XP SP3! When I finally get my Linux machine I'll have to try the Linux version!


Grab-A- Site
Grab-a-Site users need to to reconstruct an entire web site on their local hard drive for mirroring or other purposes.
They may need to reconstruct the server directory structure, including original filenames.

This would be good for archive sites, groups, and forums owners:) Well considering all the fan fic forums, and archives that have been hacked in the last few years. I reckon it would be pretty handy to have a backup copy of the site:)


WebWhacker users need to stay on top of multiple Web sites, monitoring their content changes.
WebWhacker users may need to demonstrate Web pages without an Internet connection.
WebWhacker users need an easy way to schedule Web site downloads.
WebWhacker users may need to browse a Web site "on the road."
