    Email Software

    Since M$ discontinued its email software I can't find anything that worked as good as Live Mail. Tried Thunderbird and I don't like it.

    Procrastination temporary ending.

    Removed a considerable amount of junque opening up a sizeable amount of computer space. I've put this off for eight months. Extreme happiness!!!

    Something new has been added!

    I opened up my Coco 3 to see if the CPU was socketed. Something unexpected caught my eyes. A cloud9 512 simm unit was installed! How can I test for proper operation? Two 256k simms are installed. Could larger simms work? I'm impressed!!!

    Obscene Floppy Drive Prices

    I looked on eBay for reasonably priced 360k 5.25 floppy drives. The prices I saw were absurd! Why are these drives, used by my Tandy/Radio Shack computers, so damned expensive?

    Tandy 1000 SL Upgrade

    I really had FUN today! It's been a long time since I tried installing dipps. I'm so used to zero-insertion force sockets that I forget just how much trouble press-fitting pins can be. It took almost an hour including carefully removing the, just installed, 8087 chip with a bent-in pin. Before...

    Yes, we're missing the file!

    I have a Creative Labs EncoreDXR-3 MPEG decoder card and the requisite Win2000 driver. Somehow I lost the beta DVD viewer software. Without the software my rare Thunderbird Athlon 950 struggles to watch movies and uses lots of CPU resources. The card requires the software to function properly...
