What's been happening on the Ranch... well there's been a ton of calves born and fences are all mended thanks to my niece Jess, and she really does a great job! I'm trying to capture video of a calf being born but not having much luck. Actually that's a good thing because it means the Mama cows are not having any problems. Yesterday everyone got together to round up the cows and give them their vaccines but I had to drive Grandma down to Hope and pick up Aunty Helen (my border fairy). She's not feeling to well and needs to come up here.
It was Grandma's 68th birthday yesterday, so I let her buy me lunch in Hope LOL! Hey I offered to pay but she insisted, great MIL when it's her birthday and she takes me out for lunch :)
I have worked out most the kinks with the new all in one printer, it's just the darn duplex that is still giving me problems and Hubby keeps working on that. One of the biggest problems was sending print jobs over and only having them partially print. After scouring the net for a solution I found this. This is not limited to just print jobs but also copying large files across a network with Vista too. It worked like a charm and each time I find what I'm looking for at a website I am so grateful for the internet :)
While I'm talking "technical" I thought I would show you what I did with my old laptop:
Ripped 'er right down to the mainboard! The culprit as to why it wouldn't charge is where the a/c adapter plugs in, a common problem on older Toshiba and Gateway laptops. Unfortunately the company I ordered the part from sent the wrong part, grrrrrh, so I put it all back together (with no leftover parts) and shipped it off to the company along with the incorrect part. They can rip it back down and fix it. At least it's now sparkling clean and I now know it inside and out!
