RE: Old laptop working after 24+ hrs of fiddling

... slow by modern standards but it works. Now that it is stable, do a backup ! Write down he license number. Find a "retail distribution" of your version of Windows. Feel free to over write he factory backup partition. You may have to manually install some drivers. Getting rid of "bloatware" makes a big difference. Install a SSD ! You will be amazed at how fast it will runs. Thanks but too much bother. All bloatware is gone, temp, recycle etc all cleaned out. It is what it is.

Old laptop working after 24+ hrs of fiddling

I have a 9yr old HP laptop that died on me last year. It was old so I bought a new one. Last week came time to do or die for the old one. It would take over 45 min to boot up and be dead slow after that. I would click a choice, go away for 15-20 min waiting for the response then click the next option. After 5-6 hrs (I swear) I finally reached the update option. It took till the next day, over 24 hrs of run time to get it updated. The screen was blank for hours at a time, do or die. It's now running as it was new... slow by modern standards but it works. UPDATE Still doing updates, five today. Seems like you have to check for updates after each update even though it's on 'auto update'. It's like they are all sequential and can't do some updates till all previous ones have been done... or something like that.

RE: Where are all of the snowbirds?

people post their opinions, which is what most of these threads are about...opinions. Then a disagreement. Topic goes off topic with rants and attacks. Moderator steps in....another set of opinions and closes the topic down. The whole forum has degenerated like that. We lost many, many good members because of a few individuals.

RE: WiFi Booster

We have a Wilson Cell Booster at the cottage and the tower is 8 miles away. The signal gets boosted from one bar to three and sometimes four bars.

RE: Early Television

The kiss of death. If this graphics popped up while watching your favorite show you knew TV was over for the night. Only one station in town and it could be down for a few days sometimes. width=240

RE: Can't user 5er again this winter - replace red goo in pipes?

Once again Fizz bows out and fades away. After 20 yrs he should know better than try to answer a simple question and leave it to the experts.

RE: Can't user 5er again this winter - replace red goo in pipes?

We seem to go through this discussion every year. Antifreeze is not used to protect the plumbing. It is used to flush out the water, the only liquid that expands when frozen. Once the lines have been filled with antifreeze and flushed out the water it's perfectly ok to drain it into a bucket and use it to fill all the P traps. Antifreeze and water mixed 50/50 will freeze into a soft slush but will not expand enough to do damage. I've been winterizing my cottage for 35 years, all copper pipes, no problems using this method and it always gets to -30F for a couple of days in Feb.

RE: Vax Passports

Get the vax, don't get the vax, either way it is none of anyone's business or do they have the right to ask. Due to your obvious lack of education I'll point out too you why your lack of vaccination endangers all around you. Typhoid Mary

RE: Use it or Lose it

Have you tried writing a letter in long hand lately? I learned to write back in the day of fountain pens, filled out pages of notes etc over the years. Now I sometimes stumble signing my name. The words are there but the dexterity is gone.

RE: Dogs Amazing Sense of Smell

Read somewhere your dog knows you're soon to come home from work when your scent in the house has faded to a certain level. He starts to get anxious after that.

RE: Can I rent your RV?

An RV is not simply a bedroom on wheels. How long did it take you to 'learn' it. All the systems, components etc. You don't pick that up in a weekend, especially if it's not yours.

RE: Olympics......

I stopped watching the Olympics a while back. You seldom see 'live' events anymore. Everything's highlights, cut & paste clips.

RE: How old is too old?

Two things were touched on. Anxiety at the thought of travelling. What use to be a mild challenge now leads to over thinking and worrying. It's just not fun anymore. Physical condition. I can't sit for more than an hour without stiffening up. I can change a flat tire but I need a nap after :) I walk for an hour everyday but hills kill me. Mainly it's overcrowding everywhere, campgrounds & roads. The trailer is permanently parked a the cottage and used as guest quarters.
