Thought of the Day - Fixer upper
The pop-up flash on my camera stopped working. I thought I had to send it in for repair. Found some instructions online and hacked away....worked HowTo. BTW - there is ALOT of juice locked up in the flash capacitor. Zapped myself something good with that one.
I replaced all the guts in my grill BBQ Parts.
Replaced the keyboard on a Sony Vaio laptop (not so enamored with the Vaios anymore)
And I got to reinstall everything on my main home computer thanks to corrupt key security file in Windows. That required me to borrow an old school PS/2 keyboard and buy a new floppy drive. I hadn't used the floppy drive in years...it was full of dust and even after a good cleaning wouldn't work. What a pain.
Thankfully, I've been using Mozy for online backups. It's taking a while but all my stuff is being restored to my computer. I am very happy with that service.
