12 this AM, I was hoping the cold would be behind us. Beautiful sunny day yesterday, supposed to be again today. Was thinking of pulling the winter tires off, but with the threat of freezing rain by next weekend I guess I should leave them on a while longer.
Wasted yesterday trying to catch up on the finances. glad my tax refund showed up. Also got a big raise from the company. I guess they really do want me to hang around.

Sunny, bumped 70F today.
My old HP laptop has slowed down to the point that I think the tubes need replacing. To speed it up, I did some googling and found the thing has a mod called Ready Boost. Seems all I had to do was put a 4GB+ thumb drive in one of the usb ports (the most it uses is 4GB so that's as big as you need) and when the window opened up, just select ready boost and that booger took off & sped the old thing up on opening stuff like the service manual, which is an Adobe PDF. It used to be slow opening but after opening it a coupla times, the Ready Boost opens it right up. Something about boosting the cash(???).
Anyway, if yer old computer is slowed way down, you might try checking to see if Ready Boost is installed on it then get a 4GB or bigger thumb drive to speed it up.

Congrats on yer raise Coug, It's time they realize you're worth a lot to the company....we knew it all along, they must have some slow people heading up that show.
