Well my current mood today is about as bad as you can get.  I learned yesterday afternoon that a friend of mine had been murdered by her husband- shot twice in the abdomen and he then shot himself in the head.  

They lived in a place called Bay St Louis which is in Mississippi to the east of New Orleans.  They lost everything when Katrina hit the town. They got $164 compensation - the insurance company said they weren't covered for natural disasters.  I guess that's what contributed to her husband's depression.  

I'd never actually met her - but we've been emailing for about 8-9 years.  We were both on an Eric Clapton Yahoogroup and she came over a couple of years ago to see Eric at the Royal Albert Hall with me.  Unfortunately the night before, her husband phoned and said she was to come home as there was a "family crisis" - so I missed meeting her by a few hours.  

She was a very funny, optimistic, caring  person who never let things get her down - even though she had every right to.  She was a novelist, and also wrote very funny poems.  She was 58 and believed that age was just a number - women in their 50's are in their prime.  She loved life, her family, her town, her Church, her music.

And I am just so shocked and upset that she's gone in such a horrible way.

Well you did ask what our mood was like.  :cry:

I just found this report on the incident.....

sounds very tragic....Kinda makes life seem so fragile that it can be taken away so brutally.

I'm sure the Team would wish to pass on it's condolences to the family...

Annoyed very annoyed, I was told nearly 3 weeks ago I required a PET scan and have only just received the appointment this morning telling me my scan is on Thursday (2 whole days notice) :shock:  And best of all, the scan will take approx 4 hours and is at, wait for it... 'The Institute of Nuclear Medicine'.

Still, if nothing else I should be able to glow in the dark for a while after that which will cut down lighting here at home.  :violent2:

A bit miffed!

Been trying to find out why protected WMA music tracks won't play on any of the players I have.

I've worked out it's because I changed the processor so the players think it's a different computer.

Okay... just renew the licences from the stores I got them from - shouldn't have to pay for what I've all ready paid for!

'MusicMatch' doesn't give the option which is where I got most of them from - tells you what you've bought but won't let you restore - as far as I can see anyway. So what happens if I try to download a track again? They know you've downloaded it once - if you want to download it again that'll cost you the same again! Pooh! This PC is marked as active as well so it shouldn't be a problem as far as that is concerned.

The other site I use has been 'deactivated' and it's recommended site doesn't recognise me!

Windoze Media player 10 allowed you to restore a licence 'backup' - guess what? I've got version 11 and that doesn't allow it!

Tech support tell you you have to delete the DRM licences (once you've found them - I have found them eventually) - but surely if I delete them I'll be no better off?

Luckily, I've only spent around £30 or so on downloads, but that's not the point.

I think I'll go back to my old ways of having a nice, hard copy like I used to and burn good old MP3s again!

I was just getting to like downloading single tracks for 99c and hearing stuff I hadn't heard for years again.

Has anyone else had this problem - or is it the 'Kiss Of Death' striking again after a several week hiatus?

[edit]

Well would you believe it? I deleted the DRM folder. Media Player complained that it couldn't get the licence. Tried 'MusicMatch' - it complained but downloaded a new licence! Result! Just have to go through each individual track and reacquire.

A lot happier now!

AMD  FX - 62,  just fitted it with the heatsink & fan it came with as it had  good reviews but its running quite hot !

Does it need a "bedding" in time do you think ?

AMD are supposed to run cooler than intel, what temp is it under load and did you use a good thermal compound?

Currently at 53c & the fan is flat out at 2800 rpm , the heatsink it came with was pre applied with paste.

Don't know whether to use the AC freezer 64 pro I was using, ( I cleaned the paste off it, and only have a tube of coolermaster htk-002 ) or pop down to pc world and buy one of them fandango zalmans with the speed controller so I can turn off cool n quiet.

If the Freezer is sitting there doing nothing I'd stick that on(if it's compatable with your chip), that temp is getting close to an Intel Prescott so I'd say it is a bit high, but never having run an AMD I could be wrong.

Panic stricken, like an idiot I've agreed to be interviewed by the BBC regarding the cost of staying in hospital.
They are on their way to me as I type this and if the interview is usable will be on the 6pm news.

Better go put my make-up on and change my nappy.


This is BBC Frog signing off. :oops:Image
