Bought A New HP Laptop Today

Amy03bAnd I’m trying to get it set up to work with Ham Radio Deluxe (the free version) and it just ain’t going to work right out of the box. (Or right after downloading and installing it out of the box.) Got HRD where it will control the radio,  but, everytime I try to get DM780 to do something it locks up. Usually when I try changing the settings.

Dang Laptop has Windows 10 on it and I’ve already uninstalled a shit load of bloatware. If it doesn’t work out I can always go to Windows 7!

Not a whole lot going on. Made the run to Best Buy. Stopped by Home Depot and got a led flood lamp to mount outside the garage. Made the trip home. My Jurassic Park Blu-ray’s and the rest of the presents for the in-laws came in while I was gone.

COLD out. Supposed to really snow here starting sometime tomorrow. Got my camera’s ready to go just in case it does drop 7” or so. Hoping my e-juice order comes in tomorrow before it starts to snow.

MCARC 2-meter Wednesday evening chat net went well. Think I’ll button all this up and go lay down and read.

We Had Some Snow Today

Which ain’t news for some parts of the country. Kind of rare here though. And, of course, it was all mostly gone by afternoon. Still, was nice to have some anyway.

My Poor Antenna Wire!

Fr40SWMBO had to drive in to work (in Seattle) this morning cause they cancelled two ferries this morning. Sucks. And it cost her only $28 to park all day someplace! She let me know that she got there safe if not exactly on time.

Other than that, just not a whole heck of a lot going on around here. Been doing “things” around the house and finishing up the laundry. Getting rid of a lot of computer “stuff” that I’ll probably never use again. Outdated. Obsolete. The recycle place is gonna love me!

SWMBO got home safe and about 15 minutes earlier then usual. Too bad she left her office at 1630 and was on the road that whole time! It’s a bitch when then cancel a Ferry or two from Bremerton. She’s okay and in doing her homework. (I’m still sleeping with a COED!)

Damn Dolphin file manager locks up the computer every time I right click to do something. Sick of it. Have completely uninstalled, purged, rebooted, and reinstalled and it still does it. ???

And that’s about it. I’m gonna go lay down and read a bit.
