Lost links & Re-ups

On any post, if the link is no longer good, leave a comment if you want the music re-uploaded. As long as I still have the file, or the record, cd, or cassette to re-rip, I will gladly accommodate in a timely manner all such requests.

Computer Malfunction


Well, I have returned from the Land of the Dead...dead computer, that is. My old piece of shit had been on its last leg for a long while. Finally it was coughing up lung & inhaling its final breath. I had been putting off the evitable but it finally became inevitable. Yet every cloud, as they say, has a silver lining. I had a replacement that I bought used out of the Pennysaver for twenty-five clams.

It was a Pentium 4, 2.8GHz with 480MB RAM & 100GB hard drive.

My old beater was a P-3 with 1.33GHz, 256 Ram, but it had two 80GB hard drives Local C: & Local D: cuz the last time it broke, my motherboard fried & so I installed a new board & 80 drive, but left the other 80 in there.

I also have a 200GB Maxtor external hard drive that was getting kinda crowded with...well, stuff...you know.

Now I'm up & running on the new system, I wiped everything from the old one & re-installed bare-bones XP. Now all the 'stuff' is being stored on my old comp., now re-named Library.

My external has 151 GB free space once more. This new one is smokin' & its got 75.7 GB free. I've got a few more bugs to exterminate, but I should be good to go, so I'm hoping to be posting by tomorrow again.

Just thought I'd post this up to say 'Wassup!'

  1. "...kinda crowded..."

    I know that scenario.

    Congrats on getting sorted; I'm only just back online myself after a week or so of ripping every power socket free to repaint. Sounds like you are a whole lot better organized than me when it comes to moving shit around and remembering where you put it.

    I am just now catching up with Ethyl Meatplow and Invisible Chains.

    "Sal Mineo Youth Growing Up" ? What a great title!
