Looks Like I’m Back! For Now …

And, man, what a struggle it was! Wound up reinstalling Ubuntu Studio 3 times before I could get it to work right. Biggest problem was it would boot to a blank screen. I could click on the screen and get a log-in box. Enter my password and go to a blank white screen. Reinstall again. Same Same. Finally found an entry online (on my laptop) to download and install the nVidia-430 video driver and that seems to have worked.

Of course, somehow in all that I lost a couple of directories; including that big, beautiful, Windows 7 VM I had set up. Damn. Damn. Damn! I’ve set up another but can’t get the thing to authenticate. Which means in less then a month it’s going to start bugging me to do that. Damn. But the new Windows 7 VM is looking good and about 1/3 the size of the other. Now if I can just keep the thing!

Not much else going on. Was a nice day. Almost 90 degrees here. Other than getting dressed to take my Renter to the Ferry Landing I didn’t wear anything all day. I like days like that.


MCARC 10-meter Chat Net went okay. I can really hear two of the guys on my big inverted-V antenna, and can almost hear two others on the new Alpha Antenna. That’s weird. (To me.) I live in a radio-weird place.

Soon as I close this VM I’m going to back it up to one of my other drives!!!!!!!!!!
