Remembering John Glenn.

Taking a break from writing in list form for this post. I found out today that John Glenn died at the age of 95. He was the first American to orbit the earth in Friendship 7, and he served as a Senator from Ohio for nearly 25 years. However, what I most remember him for

30 day challenge update.

I did 14 minutes on the elliptical yesterday. This happened because I set the phone timer for 12 minutes, but took a bit too long to get on. I ended up canceling the timer and thought it was going to be reset automatically, but it wasn’t. By the time I got off to see how

I’m now podcasting!

I’ve just released my first attempt at podcasting, and it’s called “The Beta Show!” http://shoutengine.com/TheBetaShow.xml I’m linking directly to the RSS feed so that if anyone wants to subscribe, they can. I talked about the Windows 10 anniversary update, and Windows 10 upgrades in general, in this first episode. Unfortunately something strange happened, and the

Interesting things did happen!

So I’ve been following the convention for the past couple days. Yesterday, when they went to vote on the rules for the convention, the voice vote was indiscernible. They were all chanting “roll call!” They had to do the vote a second time, and to me it was still indiscernible, but the chair overruled them

Since last year’s convention was in Dallas, and I’m very familiar with central time, it just seems to work well for me. I also was able to find

Conventioning!

Over the past 3 days, I’ve been following the Libertarian convention. I have to say it’s actually been a lot of fun! Although I’ve had to get up early, and I’ll have to get up at 5 again tomorrow for the last day of the convention. They’re calling the meeting to order at 8:30 EDT

I finally got my laptop back!

Well, I actually got it back on Wednesday. Although I didn’t set it up until Friday. When I set it up, I immediately noticed that Upon replacing the motherboard and fixing the problem, Dell broke my function first setting. Since I run Windows 10, (I’ve been doing this last summer,) I wondered if they gave

Computer fan hilarity.

A friend of mine had PC fan failure recently. She described it as “a loud grinding sound.” Usually, when fans fail, they sound more like jet engines about to take off. OK OK, they sound like they’re about to explode and I suppose you could describe that as somewhat of a grinding sound. Usually, it’s
