More laughing than drinking was done I can tell you Grant. :-)

Now that I've just finished my pita bread meat lovers pizza it must be, Rum O'clock time. :-D

Cheers.

No rain drop dodging so far this afternoon Grant (though it has looked very black to the east all day), but I did enjoy a good April Fool's Day down the bottom pub over several beers. :-D

Cheers.

If they're the backing plates that I'm thinking of then they're really not good when being used on closely stacked GPU's as they do cut down the fans' access to the air needed to keep them cool (they have enough trouble getting enough air without them).

Cheers.

G'morning everyone, I'm surprised that the outrage has finished before I get out and about for a change.

Sadly the ginger beer brew is producing bubbles so I won't be bottling that today (maybe tomorrow or Friday).

Anyhow, about 2.5hrs to go for Beer O'clock.

Cheers.

Here we averaged 25C for the month of March (2C higher than the summer months) and got 59.5mm (about 2.3").

We've also opened April's rain account with 8.5mm and expecting a top today of 20C with a good chance of more rain.

Cheers.

Well those 3 jobs that I picked up coming home from voting on Saturday all turned out to be very quick and simple fixes (even if those people thought that the sky was falling down), each fixed inside of 20mins.

I'm glad that it helped you out DG, it certainly helps me out a lot with the knottier problems. :-)

Now where's that beer that I just poured?

Cheers.

G'morning everyone from a damp down under.

I can relax for a bit now (if no one turns up during office hours) until I leave to do a couple of house calls this morning, but Beer O'clock maybe a little late today.

Cheers.

All fine here Gordon except for the cool breeze and the rain.

Cheers.


I'm getting that here, too. Grass is starting to get close to needing it's first cutting of the season.

Another 4-6 weeks here and that will see the last mow done until spring returns.

Cheers.

G'night Julie.

Well I've been to the P.O. and picked up a couple of parcels and got 1 of those jobs I got on Saturday done (the other 2 will be done tomorrow) and back in time for LLB. :-)

Cheers.

G'morning everyone, I hope that you've all had enjoyable weekends (it looks to have been very quiet here the last couple of days).

G'day Grant, yes it was a cool start on Saturday, but it did get up to 25C/77F by midday here.

Hello Julie.

Beer O'clock in 2.5hrs.

Cheers.

Well the Aussies just walked over the Kiwis and topping their season off with being the WC champions, winning by 7 wickets with 101 balls remaining (cementing our #1 ODI ranking). :-D

I think that the Kiwis were just shell shocked walking out on a near full and proper cricket ground (even if it is the largest in the world), with about 94,000 spectators in the stands (not just some little NZ rugby union stadium). ;-)

Micheal Clarke (captain) in his last 1 day match scored 74 off 72.

And David Warner's 45 off 46 got the Aussies out of the blocks.

But Steve Smith (future Aussie ODI captain) hits the winnings runs on the 1st ball of the 34th over and scored 56 off 71 (5x 50 run innings in a row).

"Aussie Aussie Aussie, Oi Oi Oi!!!"

Cheers.

Got one computer out today, and another in.....


I went and voted in our state elections this morning and came back with 3 jobs to do next week, and I've spent the rest of the day finishing off the refurbishment of my old Q6600 rig as someone wants to buy it.

Live music on down the bottom pub tonight to rock on to (and likely get myself into trouble again). :-D

Cheers.

James, have you installed new/updated USB drivers for anything lately?

Connected any new USB hardware lately?

I've also come across some USB hardware that you should never have plugged in while booting/rebooting a PC as they will cause the same problem that you're experiencing.

Cheers.
