I'm back

Well after a bit of computer problems I have returned. Thank goodness for some computer geeks in this clan. I had been using an old windoze machine for some posting and it went the way of Crums. So I'm back on an old mac (good and reliable) albeit a bit slow for my taste. I will say it's still easier and faster than any windoze machine. Now to catch up on the blog surfing and snarky comments. Later.

You picked up that Russian Malware, "Antivirus 2009"? Well at least you did not pound your head against it as long as I did. Smart move.

No this was a hard drive giving up the ghost. I'm trying a little trick I heard about to bring it back to life. I pulled it and put it in the freezer over night. We'll see if that works. If not I still have another machine that's plenty fast but somebody here likes to pig that machine.

My machine is just over a year old so it should be good for some time yet.

I need to recharge my jumper battery.

I'm assuming that you mean one of those units that have been coming out in recent years. Encased in a housing and whatnot.

I won't bother with one of those being as I already have an RV battery and such.

I wonder though, if the power is out long term can you charge it back up off of your car?

Short answer No. But they do make a solar charger that I could use.
