It's that time of the year again. I've been to the track to get my passes etc. .... for the 37th time in a row.
Albert Park [Melbourne] is just 5 days away. I'm posted at Turn 6 Left [Comms] and Terry's at 5.8 Right [Trackie]
And to think I was 26 years old at that first one I did in 1980 - when Alan Jones was World Champion.
Gone are the days of push-starting Senna [on my own] in Adelaide - I'll leave nudging 700 kilos of F1 to someone younger...

For anyone unsure..... think "To Kill A Mockingbird".
A more significant piece of literature in recent times there hasn't been.

For those wondering....The Easybeats....

A niece's computer is 'entertaining' me.
It's Win 10 [need I say more]....
I had this idea to boot into safe mode to do an sfc /scannow... as there appears to be 'issues'.
Now, getting into safe mode isn't the problem....did that....as far as the login.
Dunno what the password is....
"Fuck it", I said "I'll reboot back to 'normal'.
So I reboot....
...and I'm back at the safe mode login.
Yes, there are ways to hold shift...while ...
My 'mean' machine chucked a wobbly on Saturday....
Dunno what happened, but those wonderful BSODs referenced 'asmtxhci.sys' which is an ASUS USB3 driver.
I have a vague feeling it might have been caused by plugging in a mem card reader earlier that day.
Being a 'devoted' user of True Image 15, I had incremental backups of the OS and a last full one that dated to Wednesday ... which is ultimately what I restored to.
Being clever, I also have in place ever...
Americans.....Canadians....Aussies....Males....Females....we have them 'all' this time.
It's time once more to recognize those amongst us who have been seen "doing good things" in the World Of Skinning.

....and you'd rather Microsoft didn't push it down your throat....
Microsoft.... it's actually polite to ask.
98 Rotten Tomatoes is a good indicator.
It's a heck of a ride from go to whoa....definitely a must-see.
Max has kinda a back-seat role to Charlize Theron's but she's much prettier, anyway. It's worth it just to see her 'robotic' arm...it'll have you wondering if she cut off one 'for the cause'...
We saw it at the theatre at Highpoint....just a couple of miles from where Max's original Falcon was built at Duhig-Ford's Niddrie garage. ...

I 'really' only have it on my Laptop...[the 2 installs in VMware and VirtualBox don't really count]...
....and now Internet Explorer is in a death-spiral of crashing...and telling me it has...and telling me it will restart....and do I want to restore the last session...and then it crashes...and tells me it has....and telling me it will restart....
The IT Crowd will tell me to...
"turn it off and turn it on again..."
...which I'll try first....
Following on with ID's thread re new PC build.... and I'd only hijacked Starkers' one to describe what I'd been doing to date...so here's my own thread with the ins and outs of what's what.
My old machine [also home-grown] was a [then] reasonably OK machine....

Always seem to get sidetracked when I'm wandering around YouTube....
Kinda liked this one, though...
No matter how clever you are with doing backups...and even redundancy backups....
There comes a time when it all goes pear-shaped.
Simplest error - 'CRC'
Cyclic Redundancy Check - Error.
I noticed a Syncback log showing a file-backup failure due to a CRC error.
I checked and found the same file had caused the True Image backup of the drive to fail.
I didn't have an even vaguely recent copy of the file....it was a still-to-be-worked-on ...
