New mother board on it's way from Asrock. It's a replacement so I hope the new one lasts longer than the last one. It is the same model just with updated BIOS. Should be here by Wednesday. Hope to have the desktop up and running by next Saturday. Then I'll find out for certain if it's Windows 10 that has been causing BSODs or the mother board.
AHHHHHH!!!!! I hate training at new places for work! I haven't been able to get to HF site for a week thanks to work. Missing all my usual radio shows too! I'm even more than last week. < see?
LAST DAY: August 08, 2016
Flight Center post ends. Me very after working with these folks for 11 years. Now to another post where there's more risk of catching cold or flu, have to listen to screaming kids rather than jet engines and forced to take holidays off missing out on the time and a half pay (over $24/hour) but I'll also be forced to work some weekends which could potentially interfere with theater work. I'm soooooo bummed.
My life is so pathetic I don't even sleep with myself anymore.
My neighborhood is so noisy now that the kids are out of school, I have to mow my lawn just to get a little peace and quiet!!!
I just landed a paying job with the theater! Woo-hoo!!!
And I'm surprised no Seinfeld fans replied to my last entry below. Not that there's anything wrong with that. LOL I'm not a huge fan but I enjoyed the show while it was on. So for those who are fans and never said anything....."NO SOUP FOR YOU!"
They just planted the gnarliest, scariest, creepiest little white oak next to the space where I park my car at work. Seriously, it looks like it could throw apples at a scare crow!
Sure- Microsoft techs can't fix the issues: 1) a Windows update from Microsoft that's not downloading and 2) Windows Defender keeps rebooting the computer unless it's off. *Solution*- reset Windows 10. All your files will be saved. They were. It just deleted all the PROGRAMS I had installed which did NOT happen when I upgraded from 7 to 10.
8 1/2 hours wasted when I should have been working on video stuff that needs to get done and the laptop still isn't back in order yet.
I can't believe a Microsoft tech just gave me the BIGGEST B.S. answer I've ever gotten from any tech anywhere. (pardon my abbreviation)
My laptop kept rebooting automatically every 10-15 mins with the error message "page-fault-in-nonpaged-area (wdfilter.sys). I looked the error message up and found a temporary solution in the MS forums which was to disable Windows Defender. There was a comment that someone thought it might be an update issue with Defender and disabling it would stop the rebooting. Not knowing or finding anything more, I contacted MS support through their chat option. Chad- the MS tech- after receiving the above info, actually wrote "As long as you keep WD disabled the problem won't occur again." ?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!WHAT?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?! I wrote back "What's to keep my computer safe when online?" He suggested free versions of Norton or Avast! He also recommended I do a Windows reset (a new feature in W10) but this would eliminate all the apps/icons on my desktop AND in DellDock. so I would essentially have to spend hours on end setting my computer back up the way I have it. I'll search for another solution which may involve contacting support again and hoping I get a different person that knows what they're doing.
For crying out loud! Like this>>>
AHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!! They ruined the extended Jaws soundtrack too! The mix is way, way, way off! BLEH!!!! I'm depressed. :^( And to add insult to injury, I had four pizza deliveries last night and not one tip. :^(
Recently listened to the extended soundtracks of Star Wars, Empire & Jedi. Whoever did the remix did a very, very poor job. The brass is WAY TOO LOUD and the strings are practically non-existent. Wonder if the person mixing it plays a brass instrument. (?)
Think I figured out why I don't like the soundtracks to Phantom Menace, Clone Wars and Sith Revenge as much as the first trilogy. 1st) I think John Williams was trying to be too epic sounding- too many long themes i.e. the one with the choir and 2nd) he hardly used the main theme during the action sequences. The original had a driving beat that fit the scene extremely well but the new trilogy's soundtrack is more flowy- not as many twists and turns.
Oh well, off to do something fun.
Waiting for W8.1 to finish downloading. Think I'm up and running. Hoping anyway. On a "Frasier" marathon while I wait. Won't get to download HF3P tonight. And the next three days I work both jobs so I'll have to squeeze it in when I can. I sense sleep deprivation on the horizon.
