Oh look theres’ a broken graphic

This must be a hangover from the troubles I had trying to follow instructions to make use of a custom domain name for this google blogger blog. The graphic that’s missing is the one that appears in the comments block after each post. Course you can’t tell it’s broken in Firefox and I haven’t checked IE, Opera or Safari lately.

Something for a rainy day… which thanks to St. Swithin will be all of the next 30 something days.

We don’t do hardware but we know a man who does

Yesterday we had to call in a PC specialist in order to fix problems on two of our aged desktops.
For Herb’s machine there was a very noisy fan on the newish graphics card.
Simple fix: unplug the electric lead to the fan so that it no longer attempts to whizz

For my machine: well… it was OK if I just wanted to look at the sign in screen, but as soon as I started it up the whole displayed charged from left to right so you couldn’t see a thing.
When I’ve learnt how I’ll try to paste an example of what it looked like
Fix: reset the whole system to default settings and then reduce the screen resolution from (blah) to something less.
Explanation: the machine was not designed to handle a super duper 20″ wide screen so has a tantrum throws its toys out of the pram.

… but today… we have migrated from BT internet to Utilities Warehouse broadband and it’s playing up again.
I may soon be the happy owner of a shiny new laptop.

Oh, and the man who does (fix hardware) is called David Somma ( www.microsomma.com )
