A quick note to say I just finished updating my blog to WordPress v4.7 which contained a number of behind the scenes changes. As always, I backed up my files and database first. The update seems to have gone smooth and this is a test post to make sure everything else on this side is still working.
An update of the Twenty Twelve theme that I use was also available. I used WinDiff to compare the current 2.2 version with the previous one and determined there was nothing I needed to do with my child theme. They also introduced a new Twenty Seventeen default theme which I might have a look at later. The update doesn’t install it. You have to install is separately, which I think is the correct approach.
Wishing everyone a Happy (and safe) Thanksgiving for 2016! I’ll be spending mine with the folks and really looking forward to all the great food and time spent with family!
Wishing everyone a Happy Veterans’ Day and reminding everyone to remember our troops, past and present, and the sacrifices they and their families have made, not only on this day, but every day. Thank you for your service!
♫ Trick or Treat. Smell my feet. Give me something good to eat! ♫ LOL!
Just wanted to wish everyone a Happy Halloween for 2016! Boo! While I doubt any trick-or-treaters will show up to my apartment, I’ll still get myself some candy.
Oh, here’s some weather facts for Oklahoma City on Halloween:
On October 13, 2016 while I was in the middle of playing EverQuest II my computer all of sudden shutoff and I heard a “fizz-pop” kind of sound. I about had a heart-attack! It would not turn back on. No fans would spin or POST code beeps generated. I was hoping the only problem was a fried power supply and not anything else.
The power supply that came with the system was HEC-550TEB 550 Watt 80 Plus Bronze model so I went looking for a replacement. In my rush to get a new power supply I first got the Apevia Jupiter ATX-JP600W 80 Plus Bronze power supply from Computer Connections. After I got home, installed it into the computer and reconnected everything. I then looked towards the heavens and hit the power button. WOOHOO!! Everything worked! Thank the Lord.
After a few days, however, the power supply was just making more noise than I would have liked. I went looking online and eventually settled on an EVGA 600W 80 Plus power supply from Best Buy that happened to be on sale.
I’ve been running it a few days now and am satisfied with the noise level and it’s performance. I will keep the other power supply as a backup.
