Just before "Loading Up" we had "Mail Call", Cordell Spencer, 3 Cots down in our GP Medium Home, received a letter and Picture of his Newborn Baby. He was the most decent, very Religious Man I have ever known, never took Pass to go into Bien HOA with us, he stayed in Hootch and read his Bible. He had been Transferred to "C" Company for this Mission, I was with "A" company.

For those of you using older computers...... Please Read!

Couple days ago I powered up my Video Editing system (2007 vintage Supermicro Server that is OLD, EOL, but still does the heavy lifting of SD/HD Video Editing and DVD/BR Authoring here)......

And when I powered it up this time.... Bios Reset itself, scrambling Drives, wouldn't get past Bios to Boot, Date, Time, Etc. Etc. Etc...

Battery Backup had failed....

Wasn't sure where to post this, so thought it best here where many might look.

dave817 (dave726 in other forums) is the gentleman who, for many years, kept the US & Canada H-D Dealers list updated on POI-Factory (he did both the HD dealers and the Diners, Drive-ins and Dives lists on the previous US based zumoforums.com then on the UK based www.zumouserforums.co.uk after zumofourms shut down)

what's the purpose of qualifying activity last 5 weeks last 26 weeks?

I was thinking about it, it generates people adding seemingly useless comments every week to keep the above alive.

At the same time, is it patterned after A1C like when the doctor is checking for glucose?

It does strike me as quite odd.

Keeping The Windmill Alive - Your Last Trip? – November 2019

In danger of losing your windmill?

Maybe you can share the last place your GPS took you and if you encountered any problems, or if you used it to seek out special places to go (like Thai Food, ice cream shoppes, etc.).

Anything to keep your windmill alive.

45% of US drivers admit to drowsy driving

...and as one article comment (not mine) said: ...and the other 55% are liars!

"The AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety, a nonprofit research-and-education organization, estimates that more than 300,000 accidents a year, including 6,400 fatal accidents, stem from drowsy driving." Approximately 10% of auto accidents are believed to be related to drowsy driving.

Reminder of end of Windows 7 support

Just did an update to Winows 7 today and was reminded by MS that the end of Windows 7 support will end on January 14, 2020.

Don't really want to update to Windows 10, because I dislike the user interface change. BUT, I do know that you can change how Win 10 looks in the "Personalize" menu. Selecting "Classic" will make the screen look like Win 7. Hopefully all the major bugs have been fixed.
