    Coronavirus - COVID-19

    I'm 80 and have mild emphyzema, so I know what you mean by being extra careful. I live in a ten story apt bldg for the elderly, and I won't even get in the elevator with someone else, if I can help it. I won't be impolite and get off if someone else gets on, but I'll wait for the next on if someone is already on before me. Also, I sold a laptop the other day. Had the buyer place the envelope with the cash in a plastic bag I handled with an alcohol wipe and then put the cash in the oven, set to 200 f, and left it there for 45 minutes. It feels paranoid but I think being a little paranoid today isn't such a bad thing.

    Power supply on the way. The old non modular one is still working but I really want to have it as a spare/tester. It saved me a lot of grief when the EVGA power supply caved.

    Well, whatever you plan to do concerning replacing necessary components in your PCs, I would suggest that you DO IT NOW! The reason being that the shelves may be a bit bare and prices a bit high once product production and imports slow-downs from China (and other places in Asia/India, etc.) begin to affect the world markets.

    Coronavirus - COVID-19

    We have stainless steel counters in the kitchen. We are always spraying and wiping them then throwing away the paper towels and Washing our hands. We also wipe down the outside packaging of groceries brought into our home because you don't know who touched the packages. We also have always taken off our shoes in the mud room before we come into the house but we've also now been wiping the soles of the shoes. If someone coughs or sneezes in the grocery store, the floor could contain germs. It probably seems like too much to a younger person but we are in our 70's and my husband has underlying health issues so we are within bull's eye range for this.

    A Question of Balance

    Since my other desktop now is in need of a new power supply I decided to direct my IT budget in that direction. The most logical thing to do with my Linux machine is to upgrade with a new motherboard and APU. Then I can move on to a newer dedicated graphics card as needed. But right now my older setup is doing the job so I'll wait until it doesn't.

    Coronavirus - COVID-19

    Europe Wasn’t Ready for Coronavirus. It May Never Fully Recover. Think things are bad where you live ----- think your leaders are barking mad ------ well things are just as bad here too, "In early March, Spain’s Communist government was focused on passing its aberrant “sexual freedom law.” " "on March 2nd, the big issue in Switzerland was a referendum to pass a law banning any comments or attitudes against gay-friendly policies." "It was around those days that the Dutch government announced a bill that would allow the euthanasia of any elderly person “tired of living.”" "The last we heard from Holland is that the official channels are telling people: “Don’t bring weak patients and old people to hospital.” Looks like they’re only interested in saving the lives of young people. I guess they’re more photogenic and look better on postcards of tulip fields." "Also during the first week of March, almost the entire European press devoted rivers of ink to discussing whether two transgender athletes should compete in the 2020 Tokyo Olympics as men or women. " "In Germany, at the beginning of March, the controversy that dominated the nation was whether to erect a huge statue of Lenin in a small North Rhineland town." "As the pandemic began to spread dramatically, the main debate in Scotland was the imperative need for a new government law to provide free tampons and sanitary pads." "On March 10, with 118,100 diagnosed and 4,262 dead from coronavirus in Europe, the U.N. held a press conference . . . to commit to the political and economic fight against the climate emergency! " "But probably the most vile reaction has been that of the Social Communist government in Spain, which encouraged Spaniards to participate massively in the March 8 feminist rallies, the next day hiding reports that the coronavirus was already out of control in the country " "Now Calvo is recovering from coronavirus, as are most of the members of government who took part in the demonstrations. " "Something similar happened in France, where president Emmanuel Macron closed bars and discos but refused to suspend the March 15 elections. " "We now know that neither Germany nor France is counting the deaths from coronavirus that occur outside of hospitals, and that the Germans don’t call it “death from coronavirus” if the patient had a previous illness." These are all actions performed by folk who are supposedly well educated --- makes you think eh.

  17. This has actually been going on for a few weeks at work and we were assuming that it was on the ATT Remote Desktop VPN side as various things were resolving the issue. We even just pushed out a proxy fix to all asset as we were applying the fix on a case by case situation previously. After all the escalations, Microsoft finally figured out that it was on their end.

    So I found out that my choice of power supply was from a great brand (EVGA) that decided to market a "value" line. It wasn't as good as advertised, although it did make it past the 3 year warranty period. I have a Corsair (same line as I just purchased) that is going strong 6 years later so I hope this new one will do likewise. I'm not about to put a $250 PSU in a junker computer.
