big old Mercedes used be popular with the farmers in Ireland, I guess because of their sturdiness.
You'd need to be a sturdy farmer to push a big old Merc. through the fields  Wink

Good one!

I just had to let go of a 23-year-old Oldsmobile wagon, which I regret. Now the local farmer has it and will use it to haul produce out of the fields.

This time he came over to me with a beak full of worms and tried a different approach -- i think he was trying to teach me how to get my own worms.  He would drop a worm near me and then pick it right back up.
I think we was saying: hey big dumb creature, you are doing a great job of digging up worms but you don't seem to know what to do next.
And where is Cody while this dialogue proceeds? Sulking?

Don't forget the quiet guy on the plane with a gun tucked away... I think they call him the pistolero.

And then there's the flying squirrel that leaps on and off of my bedroom window sill all night long. I think it wears hobnail boots. I'd cheerfully use a gun on him, except he belongs to an endangered species.

12  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Our experiences with LED light bulb replacements on: May 16, 2014, 04:18:48 PM
A few years ago I swapped all my bulbs (> 100) to CF and found that they came nowhere near to the lifespan indicated, so I'm a  bit skeptical about the promised life of LEDs.

That said, recently I bought 8 60w-equivalent LED bulbs that look like a regular incandescent bulb that's been run over by a steamroller. They're very light in weight, dimmable, and work extremely well as fan bulbs (nothing to be affected by vibration). They also give a good level of light output and I find them more than acceptable in floor lamps. This time round, I'll wait a bit longer before going the whole hog and replacing everything but, so far, I'm very pleased. I'd like, indeed expect, to see the price come down from the $12 each that's being asked right now.

That's a pretty hip play on words.  smiley

It can be adapted to fit most circumstances--one thigh fits all.

Too bad, she'll just have to humerus.

The one on the left looks rather grumpy with that black look. I suppose it's a scowl and cross bones.
 
18  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Help! USB 3 has left the building — I want it back. on: April 10, 2014, 02:00:17 PM
Thank you both for the input!

Among other things, I disconnected from every USB port and cleared everything related to USB from my system — drivers, registry entries… every USB-related item. No luck.
I restored the system to a time before this began. No luck.

On a whim I just bought a third USB 3 cradle which works perfectly well, while the other two do not. The two cradles that won't play properly are dual bay. The new one is a single bay (and so was a previous model that works but isn't on site right now to try). There may be something to explore there, OTOH the human brain loves a coincidence.

At the moment I'll settle for one working properly and pick at why the others do not when I feel more inclined.

If the driver has recently updated you could try rolling it back to the previous version as a first step.


Thanks for the response. There's nothing to which I can roll back (?!?).
I pulled drivers from a March 18 backup and shoved them in while Windows wasn't running and then rebooted into W81 — no go.

  Sad

Something that relates to USB 3 has changed in my system.

I have a Thermaltake BlacX  external cradle for use with bare HDDs. BlacX 5G Dual Sata 5.0 GBps 3 Tb Usb 3.0 External Hard Drive ST0022U. (link)

Suddenly, when I try to move files of significant size to/from it, under Windows 8.1-64, I get a system error which is:
An error occurred copying
<name of file>
The system cannot find the file specified


Among other things this means that I can no longer run or retrieve backups using USB 3.0.

  • I have the same error with a cradle of a different brand.
  • I have the same error when trying different drives in the cradle.
  • I can read/write what I like if I'm connected with USB 2
  • I have the latest USB 3 driver in my system (Renesas USB 3,0 eXtensible Host Controller - 0096 Microsoft).
  • Using USB 3, I can read/write smaller files to from a drive in the cradle (4.96GB for example)

So, like a lumber-jacked tree, I'm stumped.

Can somebody be kind enough to suggest an appropriate starting point for seeking a fix?

You would be amazed how "dirty" the power in your house is.
I am the power in my house and electricity is just a servant but, please, don't tell my wife I said that as she has other ideas about who/watt is in/on charge.  embarassed

That's without even getting into the issue of cooling which is a problem for all drives, but probably even more for a SSD (especially a consumer model) than a HDD.
I find that my machines run cooler with SSDs than with mechanical drives. More space for air flow?

A couple of years ago I installed a 128 GB SSD as my boot drive…
